This is a music video that is basically an orgy of awesome things. A super-catchy song, chiptune melodies, and a wealth of pixel art from artists around the world. Video game references like woah. I can’t put it into words, you’ll have to watch.
I’ll admit, I had heard of The Wily Wars but I had never played it, in fact I had no idea what it was. Turns out The Wily Wars was a game for the Sega Mega Drive (aka Genesis) in 1994 that comprised of ported versions of MegaMan 1, 2 and 3, originally for the Nintendo Entertainment System.[audio: rm2-01-prologueandtitletheme.mp3]
What’s totally rad about this game, is all the music is re-done to play on Sega’s hardware. What that means for turbo geeks out there, if you’re into that crunch, crisp, punchy FM Synth sound, the Soundtrack for The Wily Wars has remakes of all of the MegaMan music from the first three games. Some are better than others, and some total kick ass.
The MegaMan Network has the soundtrack up as a free download! totally awesome!
And you know I had to post the CUTMAN theme >B] [audio: rm1-03-cutmanstage.mp3]
