Gaming in Stereo: Pink Puffball Tuesday!
Today on Gaming in Stereo is Kirby day. The cute, cuddly, and fierce character has won hearts since the days of the Game Boy and now has a very stylish remix album courtesy of those great folks over at OverClocked Remix. This song and album, Kirby’s Adventure: Rise of the Star – The Kirby’s Adventure Remix Collaboration, is quite a bit different than the music I normally feature; it forgoes a lot of the techno and heavy electronic feel and creates some beautiful sounds that, just like that Nintendo charm will put a big smile on your face. Today’s song Starbound – Theme of Dream Warrior done by chthonic was the first song I heard from this album and fell instantly in love with. The marching drums throughout the entire piece the 8-bit sound check while the strings add depth to create something wonderful. Towards the end of the song, the percussion really drives it to 11 and brings to life music that is only befitting of a great Nintendo character. I have had friends in the past argue that Kirby is useless, but I stand on the love for the pink puffball, Kirby is awesome, so are his games and the music that drives them. Enjoy!
