The 5-year international collaboration between Jeff “jmr” Roberts of Canada and Mikhail “streifig” Ivanov of Russia has brought us some of the best video game prog rock ever. You may have seen them at MAGFest or 8Static Festival in the past or heard their various contributions to numerous cover albums. Check out their covers collection of some less common, but excellent video game tracks.
As of last night, Monday October 1st 2012, the Chiptunes = WIN Expansion Pack is OFFICIALLY RELEASED!!!
A direct sequel to the first mega-compilation, this one expands upon it with 22 brand new, unreleased tracks from 24 completely different artists!! All found on Bandcamp at chiptuneswin.com, pay what you want with a base price of FREE, same as the first! And, of course, once again mastered excellently by the ALWAYS awesome Dj CUTMAN! Nothing else for me to say (although CLICK HERE to read what Destructoid thinks about it ;), except…
And hey, just in case you haven’t heard the first one yet, HERE YA GO!! =D
Except for one time in the beginning of my writing gig here, I typically just delightedly write-up other people’s awesome nerdy projects in these Friday blurbs. Today, however, is another one of those rare times where I get to over-exuberantly tell you about something I’m personally involved in. ;)
SO HOLD ONTO YOUR BUTTS, ‘CUZ HERE IT COMES!!!:
