Weekly Poll: Needs More Crossovers
July 19, 2010
I'm pleasantly surprised by the fact that most all of you out there listen to some form of video game music recreationally. You're my kind of people. I love a good remix or arrangement, but I also love a solid original soundtrack. I even listen to old Nintendo Entertainment System beeps and bleeps sometimes under the right circumstances when the mood strikes me. I'm honestly unsure why more developers and publishers don't release arrangement CDs of their best music. Companies such as Capcom, Konami, and even Nintendo "get it", but when it comes to this sort of thing, I'm greedy. I can never have enough video game music.
Speaking of remixes, have you seen the trailer and announcement for Capcom's upcoming Mega Man Universe? It looks like Mega Man will be joined by guest stars from other Capcom properties such as Street Fighter and Ghouls 'n' Ghosts in his next adventure. Which other Capcom properties would you like to see make an appearance in the battle against Dr. Wily? Bionic Commando? Darkstalkers? Resident Evil? I've put together a list of ten options for this week's poll, but feel free to suggest something else if you don't see your favorite franchise included. Let's hear your thoughts.
