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…
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!!!:
THIS FRIGGIN’ FRAGGIN’ MONDAY NIGHT to be specific!! =D
22 *BRAND SPANKIN’ NEW, UNRELEASED* chiptracks from 24 completely different chipartists!

AND YESIT’S A BRAND NEW SHIRT BUNDLE~ ^_^ Also, click this link about shirt sizing!). And also just like before, join us for a completely ridicuWIN time at 8pm EST on the 8 Bit Power Hour on Areciboradio as we listen through the entire album before releasing it immediately afterward at www.chiptuneswin.com!

If you haven’t had a chance to play the awesomely deep and surprisingly difficult flash game Rokko Chan, based off the classic MegaMan series, now is the time. Rokko Chan is a fan-made MegaMan game, with key change: the protagonist is a girl. Battle robot masters, gain new abilities, jump, shoot and dash your way to victory. What’s cooler? An epic, 64 track soundtrack/arrangement album with an all-star lineup.
Some of you have heard this album before, but a friend emailed it to me again recently and I had forgotten how good some of these covers are. It’s an 8 bit tribute album to Weezer. Here’s Holiday by Anamanagucci
And here’s the whole album, and here’s it in ZIP
