Hmm, I wonder if I should hold out for a cheaper price from Play Asia, or just order now from NCSX...

Or I could skip both entirely and wait for it to show up on Yahoo Auctions.  Decisions, decisions!

Thanks SO MUCH for posting that.  I'm guessing both places will have limited quantities, so I got my order in already.  I'm just happy to have any chance at all to easily get this set.  Also of note - those Super Famicom virtual console controllers are being sold at NCSX for $30 as well.

Angela Nov 21, 2007

Nice.  My order is in at NCSX.  Guess that'll save me from having to do a truly serious recording session. ;)

I'm still doing a handful of recordings, mostly by request.  I'll have Honeyhive Galaxy up for Zane, and Space Junk and Battlerock Galaxy up for Wanderer soon.

Awesome. smile You can give me a buzz anytime.

Oh, the puns. They hurt.

Awesome, thanks for pointing this out!  $29.75 shipped!

Damn, I feel like such an idiot.  But I really don't feel up to figuring out how to cancel my order with NCSX to grab a copy from Yesasia instead right now.

@ Angela - I second Wanderer's request for Battlerock Galaxy.  But I'd like to request the Boo mansion theme from Ghostly Galaxy.

Angela - page not found. :(

"Public" setting wasn't turned on, my bad.  Should work now.

Wanderer Nov 22, 2007

Thanks, Angela! Man, the music in this game is terrific... I think my favorites are Battlerock, Good Egg, Buoy Base and Gusty Garden.

Qui-Gon Joe Nov 22, 2007

I have WAY too many favorites to mention... the final level and battle are way up there, along with the timed purple coin runs.  I also really really like the quiet ambiance of... uhh... whatever the actual name of Random Crap Floating in Space Galaxy is.  Battle Rock is great.  Heck, the whole soundtrack is pretty much the best stuff I've heard out of Nintendo in ages.  I hope that Yokota branches out and gets to do the scores for non-Tokyo EAD Nintendo games.  I'm actually really curious if - when the OST comes out - we get to find out which four tracks Kondo did.

Good thing I read further into this topic. Besides, that NCSx place seems to be finished taking pre-orders anyway.

Just heard some of the Super Mario Galaxy music tonight; one of my cousins showed me the game when the family got together for Thanksgiving.

And, what did my aunt and two female cousins want to see?! WiiSports!! I guess it was awesome just to see them interested in video-games...but imagine wanting to go to the trouble to get a hard-to-find $200 console just for WiiSports!

It wouldn't surprise me if Kondo was involved with the remixes. Most of the stage music sounds like the work of just one composer. I haven't heard the final battle theme yet but now I'm looking forward to it. wink

What else has Yokota written?

Hey! Don't knock WiiSports! I've gotten more fun out of bowling and golf than I can count. wink

From a little bit of searching online, it seems he left Koei to work with Nintendo EAD Tokyo when it was formed, and has since done their two games: DK Jungle Beat and Mario Galaxy (aside: both fantastic games and I absolutely cannot wait to see what that studio does next).  Can anyone confirm that he also did the arrangement for the two live orchestra tracks recorded for Twilight Princess?

Edit: Forgot to mention, I also think that Wii Sports is well worth the price of entry for the system.  I've probably played it more than any other game in the last year.  There was about a six month period when I was playing it literally every single day.

Arcubalis Nov 23, 2007

Yeah, looking forward to Hudson's DecaSporta, a Wii-sports kinda knock-off with basketball and a buncha other games with no repeats from Wii Sports. 

Apparently Nintendo didn't let them integrate Miis, so they made similar looking characters.  Should check out Destructoid's feature where they were invited to stay at Hudson for a week to see how the company works, etc., in Japan.  The owner of the site chronicles his experience, and it's a great read:

In the Acrubalis' interview, Kondo mentioned that his four tracks were very important one.  So I'm thinking maybe the final battle theme at least and maybe a level theme or two.  I'm really hoping they let us know which four he wrote in the OST.

Amazingu Nov 24, 2007

I got the game, so I'm eligible for the discount on the soundtrack at club Nintendo. Only I'm 100 points short!

Anyone got any Japanese points lying about the place?

Ghostly Galaxy is up.  I added an ending to it, rather than the conventional fade-out; the song just lends itself to it so well.  smile

Thank you!  And I noticed your finishing touch on the track and what a perfect way to end it! 

Now if I can just request one more track and I'll promise not to bug you again!  Buoy Base Galaxy!?

Angela Nov 24, 2007

Haven't reached Buoy Base yet, but I'll be sure to snag it the moment I get there.

In the meantime, I just finished Beach Bowl Galaxy.  This was easily the hardest galaxy to record thus far; not so much the on-land theme, but its underwater variation.  Mario can only hold so much air, and there's a sound effect that chirps to indicate when he's reached the half-way and three-quarter mark with his oxygen meter.  So I had to dive, record, and resurface four times, and then splice the four separate parts together.  That was a royal pain in the trousers, but I defy you to listen to the song and pinpoint where I made those splices.  Go on, try! ;P

Beach Bowl Galaxy & Beach Bowl Galaxy (Underwater)

Wanderer Nov 24, 2007

Buoy Base has an underwater variation as well. tongue

As for the underwater version of Beach Bowl Galaxy, I couldn't find any trace of splicing. Impeccable job!
