Day 10 - multiplayer FPS

So I don't really know what I was thinking with this day. Well, no I was thinking exactly what Great Rumbler was thinking, "gee I really like Unreal Tournament music", so why don't I make a day dedicated to multiplayer FPS osts. Except, do most multiplayer FPS games even have a score on their maps nowadays? Seems like a throwback mainly. Off the top of my head I would think about Unreal Tournament games, Quake 3 (my choice for today), Tribes series... and uh. Blanking. I don't think Halo has any music during multi, CoD? Battlefield? Nah, right? What about Titanfall? I'm just not sure. But sure would be nice for music to be front and center for a multiplayer FPS again that's really popular. Trends seem to circle around again so I wouldn't be shocked if 2025 brings some bangers into the multiplayer FPS genre again.

Quake 3 - Track 10 (composer: Sonic Mayhem)

Oh? I never played it. At that time my PC was out of date, and by the time I had something capable I felt like it was too late for me to jump in.

And as I understand it the X360 orange box version was not very well optimized unlike the rest of that incredible package.

Day 11 - 2D game

I don't think I included any Mega Man in the previous challenges. On one hand most of us have heard the key tracks, even if you haven't played a Mega Man game. They are quintessential 8-bit tunes (and post 8-bit too to a lesser degree of common knowledge). Remixed plenty of times, played live in various arrangements. Mega Man music is practically in the overkill category of VGM tunes when it comes to recognizable game music. I'll go with this track. One that in particular lends itself to great remixes

Mega Man 3 - Wily Fortress 3 (I've seen all sorts of names used for this track which sort of makes it slightly hard to find on youtube)

Day 10 - Multiplayer FPS
To be honest, I put a track from UT in my last challenge, but this is really the only multiplayer FPS I spent any serious amount of time with, and I love the music, so here's another cut from it...

Day 12 - music from a favorite level

I wanted to go with The End from MGS3. The old ass sniper with the parrot. Just an amazing boss battle. That whole game is just *muah*. Favorite in the series. But, that boss fight literally has no music 😂.

So I go with this other level that effing blew my mind the first time around and I still think it's cool as shit.
The fifth colossus from Shadow of the Colossus.

"we gonna grab on to its wing and go airborne? Holy shit holy shiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiit!"

Not sure if the actual track title is correct


Shadow of the Colossus - A Despair filled Farewell

Day 14 - music from remake/remaster

It takes some balls to really remake tracks from a game to the point where they seem less like an arrangement as much as they do seem like a new composition or a heavily altered rendition. I sampled like 3 tracks from the Demon's Souls remaster and I wasn't necessarily sure I liked the new takes on the few tracks. Not sure if the original ones can be used in the game (would be cool. I think the Halo games did let you alter between the classic arrangements and the remastered arrangements on the Master Chief Collection).

the track I picked was Maiden in Black. Just on a personal level I find the new rendition to be a bit much. Too much going on in terms of how bombastic it sounds. There's something more "singular person" about the original track. And the whole stop start thing seems so on point that I was a bit confused that it wasn't used for the new rendition. Also, there is some pretty bad audio clipping around 2:12 and 2:20 or so. I listened to this track on 3 different uploads. Not sure if that's just people uploading the same track that maybe is at lower quality, or if the OST is truly compressed to shit and back. I'm not judging the soundtrack as a whole. I think it is cool to fully reimagine it. I just might not think it's as good as the OG possibly. Certainly not in the case of the Maiden in Black track

Demon's Souls - Maiden in Black remake


the OG (which I think is a lot better with more *sigh* soul, lel)

Day 15 - kart racer

Is Mario Kart Wii my favorite? From the MK series I mean. I don't know. But it is the one I played the most. It was a time where me and my one roommate were always down for Mario Kart and we could usually rope one or two more people in. It was the PSWii60 generation which was loooooong so it just became the kart racer of choice for us during that time period. I have loooooots of time logged in on the SNES and the GBA Mario Karts and I think those have some fantastic classic tunes. And Mario Kart 8 with all the real instruments and performances was a huge boon for the series.

But I'll just go with that "good feeling and time in my life" choice and place a MArio Kart Wii track.

Mario Kart Wii - Moo Moo Meadows

Day 17 - music that made you check out a game

For me it's Nier. Game wasn't well received at first. Word of mouth spread that "no no, it's actually great. Just not really ideal for a single review run though so that's why it didn't register with those working on a deadline." That and that one goof at Kotaku who failed at fishing cause he was in the wrong location so he refused to even review it even though the map clearly marked a different spot. *shrug*.
But before the word of mouth started to get really strong I heard several tracks from the OST was like "holy shit this is amazing. Too bad the game ain't too hot". I watched my roommate play a bit. That's right around the time the game sort of got its second breath in the public eye. I would later go on to play it myself.

Day 18 - music from first sequel

Half-Life 2 - Triage at Dawn


Been a little too long since I last played this track so I don't remember when it showed up, but as soon as I heard it on some upload featuring the entire ost, I knew that was the track I wanted from this game.

edit: looking at a quick clip it seems to be when
Quote
This is after Ravenholm when you go through the mines and come out at the train tracks with the snipers. The scene takes place in the building you enter after you can't proceed any further on the tracks.
"Winston's been hit" has been associated with it too as the music plays while an NPC is tending to Winston, but if you type in "winston's been hit" it's evolved into a meme.

Day 20 - game you haven't finished

Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door

My Gamecube is at my folks place. I'm in the final area (or on my way to it I think). From what I've read the game gets really hard at this point and with a lack of continuity (it's an RPG after all) I feel like it's hard to get back into it. I still want to finish it, but I wish I never read it gets hard now haha. I've been putting it off multiple times I've been back "home" home.

Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door - Rogueport              (this is the first main area of the game)
