Night-Time Listenings Wrap-Up: Week Of 5/14/12

“Great Scott, he finally did one song per day!” Yep, I managed to stay up ’til ten. I do kinda wish Facebook had a schedule system where I could write up something and schedule it to post on its own at certain time (like we have here). Anyway, this week on Night-Time Listening, we kicked off with a bit of Machinae Supremacy and their song Death From Above from Jets N Guns. Then we listened to a fine remix of Lockjaw’s Saga from Vincent Rubinetti. Afterwards was chiptune artist Fighter X and his song R07. We went a little obscure oldschool with the Main Board Theme from Jaki Crush. And finally, we ended the week with some Chrome Gadget from Sonic 3.

Remember to like our Facebook page to get updates from TWF, and to see the music posted without waiting for these wrap-ups. Again credit goes to the fine people of The Spriters Resource (SkyLights specifically) for the background to Chrome Gadget.

Square Enix is releasing its very own chiptune album

Are you a fan of music from games like Final Fantasy and Chrono Trigger? Maybe you also like tunes from the Mana or Saga series? You know, games from back when good ol’ Squaresoft was still around. Well if you said yes, and also happen to be a fan of chiptune music, then I’ve got some good news for you!

Square Enix is releasing an album of 8-bit arrangements from many of its popular games from its Squaresoft days. The album, SQChips, comes out on September 7th for ¥1890 (about $23.50) in Japan. You can check out the website to see a list of some of the games that are going to be in the arrangement and even check out a sample of a track quite a few Mana fans should recognize. To be honest, I’m pretty excited to hear about this and can’t wait to see what they come up with. I love Squaresoft-era games and chiptune music, so in theory I should be smitten with this album. We’ll all have to wait till September though before we can really see how this will turn out. At least this might give me enough time to start playing Threads of Fate.
