The thrilling conclusion of this year’s Backlog Attack takes us back to the first Paper Mario on Nintendo 64, then into the final frontier (yes, that one) to purify vampires in Lunar Knights.
We continue the Backlog Attack with a rare stopover in India to fight a bunch of demons in Raji: An Ancient Epic. Also, a second outing with the Frog Detective in The Case of the Invisible Wizard. Sonic the Hedgehog guest stars.
The Backlog Attack continues as Randy goes all the way back to the original Legend of Zelda. His reaction may surprise you. (But then, many things may surprise you.) Meanwhile, D.J. tries out Red Earth, Capcom’s hybrid fighting-RPG-dinosaur game.
Have some semi-coherent rambling after staying up too late playing video games. And then… our Extra Life live show, ha ha!!
D.J.’s finally made it through the first dungeon in the new Zelda and he’s here to tell you what he thinks of it so far. Or, at least that’s what he’s supposed to do.
It’s no secret that I’m a huge fan of RPGs. Right now I’ve been playing a metric ass ton of Xenoblade Chronicles and the absolutely gorgeous soundtrack got me thinking of some of my favourite Overworld themes from games of yesteryear. Near the end of Episode #20 of VGH Randy asked me what an Overworld theme was, and of course I didn’t answer him because I’m a jerk! But seriously, an Overworld theme is just the music plays while your adventurers (usually in an rpg) traverse the world (map)!
(Note for Randy, the song that plays in DQ9 when you’re running around between cities would fit this criteria)
Xenoblade doesn’t really have a traditional rpg “Overworld” per se but the music is simply incredible and inspired this weeks BGM Mode. So it may or may not get two slots this week. Plus it doesn’t hurt that the game currently has my soul in its grasp.
But lets kick things off with what I consider to be the greatest/quintessential Overworld theme of all time, and it doesn’t even come from a traditional RPG!
The Legend of Zelda – Overworld Theme – Koji Kondo
You may have heard this song before. Over 20 years later and Koji Kondo’s masterpiece still resonates with gamers. Nothing more needs to be said.
