Favorite Tunes #162: Bonus Edition

As promised, here is the bonus Favorite Tunes. It was tempting to make this one all Halloween themed, but I decided to just stick with one tune from a game that would fit the spooky holiday. Enjoy.

Demitri Maximoff Stage - Night Warriors: Darkstalkers' Revenge (ARC, SAT)

I wonder when Capcom is gonna wake up and realize that they do have other fighting game franchises besides Street Fighter that they can do. I mean, when was the last time the Darkstalkers crew showed up in a game that wasn't a spin off or crossover? Anyway, Demitri brings with him some sweet beats.

Bonus Screen - Super Mario World (SNES)

I've beaten Super Mario World dozens of times, but this year was the first time I ever cleared all 96 level exits, thus finishing the game 100%. The Bonus music in this game is so good it's a shame you don't get to hear it unless you're in a hidden bonus area or a Switch Palace. This music is accessible for use in Super Mario Maker via the Sound FX tools.

Armed Ghost - Cybernator (SNES)

Take control of a giant mech that is armed with gun and melee combat abilities. The missions that use zero gravity change things up a bit and the objective isn't always as simple as get from point A to point B. Despite the game's brevity, Cybernator is a blazing adventure that doesn't let up until the credits roll.

The Last Springsteen - Contra: Hard Corps (GEN)

The road to the final boss of Contra: Hard Corps isn't hard. It is absolutely ball busting, tear your hair out, break your controller, rage quit hard. But press on and you'll be treated to this sicker than sick heavy metal jam. Or you could just, you know, hear it on YouTube. That works, too.

Shadow Man's Stage (Demolished Area) - Mega Man: Network Transmission (GCN)

When people think of Mega Man: Network Transmission, often frustration comes to mind. Oh and Fire Man's killer theme. But Blazing Internet isn't the only badawesome music from that game. Really, the whole soundtrack is pretty boss, but if you're looking for some more stand out themes, Shadow Man has you covered.

Guile Stage (Arranged)

Closing out this bonus edition, I thought I'd treat you all to something special. This smooth rendition of Guile's theme was part of the Hyper Street Fighter II ~The Starting Over~ Remix Tracks that was part of the Insanity DVD release line. These DVDs usually contained a bonus disc of music that was either original music from the game or remixed tunes. It may not go with everything as the CPS-II theme does, but dang it if it doesn't sound freaking sweet.
