I"d go for some remixes of these original tunes myself, espiecally if they are just the 8bit offerings. Though I have nothing against 8bit tunes I do love a remix of a theme I enjoyed as a child, if done right that is. Loved DJAxis's take on the Dr. Wily castle theme myself.

If there are chiptunes that are worth listening to, why wouldn't you include them?

I don't mind chiptune, it has a certain quality that I guese is just nostalgic. But in the case of the Mega Man 2 peice you played I would have opted for the version by the MiniBosses. They also do a cool version of the Punch Out theme.

I know a lot of people hate chiptunes. For me, I can still really appreciate that music. In a lot of ways I think it's far more distinct and varied than most modern music. Now, every game has sweeping and majestic orchestrated music, but very little of it stands out.

I especially like that song from Beyond Good & Evil. I love the theme for that game too, "Sweet Home." And don't worry about us in regard to 8bit tunes. If anyone is going to appreciate that music, it's us right here on Pixlbit Smile

Dark Souls II Review

Masochistic is a word often associated with the Souls games. Though they’re known to be incredibly difficult for anyone who may be new to the series, they’ve become only mildly challenging for veterans. However, Dark Souls II is no pushover, proving to be difficult as soon as the journey begins. Even in the most basic tutorial area, players will find death waiting for them. Whether you fall into a hole you overlooked or walk past an enemy who is able to catch up to you for an easy backstab, Dark Souls II isn’t afraid to kill you mercilessly. Although the game never feels cheap, it always finds a way to lure me into a well sprung trap in which I am ill-prepared for. Difficulty isn’t the only thing in which the Souls franchise is known for though, and Dark Souls II gives us another beautifully crafted world that’s perfectly ripe for exploration with rippling lore waiting to be uncovered and dissected.
