Project Antivent – Day Twenty Five

And so, we come to the last day of Antivent. I'll keep this brief, since you've all probably got food that needs eating and whatnot.

Our last theme comes from The World Ends With You. I won't lie, this is not only my favourite game on the DS, it's also one of the best games I've played in the last decade. The gameplay is fantastic, the soundtrack, sublime and the story compelling as all hell. I was addicted to the game for about a week solid and the final boss battle was the crowning moment for me.

Today's final theme, Twister Remix, comes from that battle. In a game with an exemplary OST, it takes something special to stand out from the crowd. If you ask me, Twister Remix has that in spades. Enjoy.



And finally, because it wouldn't be Christmas without gifts, we present you with everything we've covered here (minus Breaking The Girl because that could land me in a buttload of trouble. Don't worry though, you'll like the alternative). Download merrily and have fun, people.

Project Antivent – Day Twenty Four

Time for something very different today. I know I said at the start I said I was keeping this to one series/one song, and yes, this is from a Final Fantasy game, but bear with me, my reasoning is just.

Dancing Mad
was originally the final boss theme from Final Fantasy VI, probably my favourite of the series. In its original form, the track was great, but sadly it hasn't quite aged as well as others. You should probably listen to it before we go any further. Go ahead, I'll be waiting here.

Heard it? Great.

Hellion Sounds is a group that covers game music. Yes, another one. But rather than doing a straight up cover, they take the general spirit of the music and embellish it til it doesn't just shine, it radiates with the brightness of a sun. They take the original music and turn a good song into something beyond special. Words honestly can't do this one justice. Just click for yourself and see what I mean.

Project Antivent – Day Twenty Three

Dynasty Warriors! A game that is to hystorical accuracy what orbital bombardment with nuclear weapons is to subtlety. They never had electric guitars back in feudal China. Their loss, since heavy guitars, as we've proven oh so many times this month, makes anything that little bit cooler. Today's offering is from the 5th game in the series, and probably my favourite piece of music from any of them: Great Red Spirit.

Okay, bear with me, because this one's a little weird. The Guilty Gear games have always been known for their hard-rocking soundtracks. Unsurprising, considering the number of musical references in the game. These soundtracks have always been highly acclaimed and are generally seen as some of the better fighting game OSTs. However, when Guilty Gear XX #Reload was released in Korea, they saw fit to give it a completely new soundtrack, the music being provided by a band called N.EX.T. The end result? A selection of music every bit the equal of the originals, arguably surpassing them on many points, and the single greatest character select theme in the form of today's track, Redemption. Crank this one up: if the walls aren't shaking, you're doing it wrong!
