Sorry for taking long, but oh well, Happy New Years everybody! 2016 has been very rough on us, so many deaths, and a questionable presidency upon us. The future is uncertain for us, but we'll have to wait and see what 2017 will have inshore for us. 

To anyone, here's my new year's resolution: For now on, I'll start doing reviews on video games! I've thought on this, and now I think I want to start reviewing some video games. Mind you, I won't frequently do it, just when I fell like it's the right time to do one. And I'll still be doing my 1001 VGS list from time to time. 

So I hope yo all had a great holiday, and here's to hopefully a better, brighter year for us!
1001 Video Game Songs: Christmas in Nightopia
Game: Christmas Nights into Dreams…
Composer: Naofumi Hataya

Merry Christmas everyone! I hope you all had a good holiday, and now I shall share with you all my final entry for my 12 Days of Christmas countdown! Both years I've uploaded many themes based on winter(with the exception of Solstice's theme), But now for the first time we shall end our little countdown with the most christmasy theme form a video game.

A cult classic on the Sega Saturn, Nights into Dreams remains a fan favorite to those who have played it. Some may, or may not know that during the holiday season of 1996, a special edition of the game was released called "Christmas Nights into Dreams…". This special edition included two christmas themed levels, and tonight our final entry is the track Christmas in Nightopia. Basically it's a rendition of the famous christmas song "Jingle Bells". It may not have been anything original, but you gotta love the holiday cheer the song brings to you. It's a very fun and cheerful song to listen to on the holidays.

That dose it for our 12 Days of Christmas! I hope you all had a good time today, and I'll see you next year! A Merry Christmas to All, a Happy New Year, and to all a goodnight!

1001 Video Game Songs: Holoska (Day)
Game: Sonic Unleashed
Composer: Tomoya Ohtani

Day 11: Holoska Day Stage

It's christmas eve, the hour of the most wonderful holiday is upon us. Before I go to bed, I will give you folks my pick for Day 11 of my 12 Days of Christmas. 

Sonic Unleashed is a mixed bag, but it did bring in hope for the franchise after the disaster of Sonic '06 (until Boom came along). I'm sure you all heard how reviled the night stages are, but how beloved the day stages are, so I'll spare you the details and get on with the track. The day stage of Holoska is definitely one of the best stages in the sonic franchise, and one of the best ice themed levels. The track has that rocking tune you'd expect from modern day sonic games, but also has that flare of winter joy that blends very well with the rock element. You'd get a very fast-paced winter song that is perfect for bobsledding.

I hope you all have a great christmas day tomorrow, and after my merriment is over, I'll share with you the final track for my 12 Days of Christmas countdown!

1001 Video Game Songs: Solstice Title Theme
Game: Solstice
Composer: Tim Follin

Day 10: The title theme of Solstice

Had I known the winter Solstice was two days ago, I would have featured this song on that day. However, after learning of the Solstice a little know game popped into my head. Now this can be seen as breaking the rules a bit since this isn't a winter themed track, but coming from a game named after the winter solstice, I thought I could make an exception. 

I'm willing to bet not many of you ever heard of this game, It is a relatively obscure NES game. The basic plot is that an evil red wizard has kidnapped the princess, whom he plans to sacrifice on the day of the solstice to gain ultimate power, and you must collect six pieces of a staff in order to stop him. Very simplistic story. Now for those who have heard of this game, they will know the one thing this game is remembered for, the music. Specifically the famous title theme.

Back in the day this theme blew the minds of people who were lucky to play this game, and the title track is still a marvel to behold to this day. Most song on the NES were simplistic, and usually loops after a minute. Solstice's title track however; not only dose it last for a solid three minutes, but it also has progression that was a very, Very rare luxury many NES games didn't have! The song will constantly change the tone of it's music after a while, giving us a different sound, while retaining the melody. Nowadays, we can do this sort of thing easily with more advanced technology, but back in the day, music like this was considered near impossible to pull off. But Mr. Follin managed to pull it off, and he's given us one of, if not, the greatest NES tracks ever made!

Only 2 more days till Christmas folks! Our holiday cheer is about to reach it's climax, so stay tuned for the final 2 track for my 12 Day of Christmas marathon!

1001 Video Game Songs: Blackmoor Mountains
Game: Dust: An Elysian Tail
Composer: Alexander Brandon 

Day 9: Blackmoor Mountains

Dust: An Elysian Tail is quite the gorgeous game to look at. The art style of the backgrounds can be very striking, and even breathtaking at times. Sure the story could have been done a little better, and some of the gameplay, but both the animation, scenery, and music makes this game standout quite a bit. 

As this is apart of the 12 day countdown, it's no surprise that our entry for day 9 is the track to the second-to-last area of the game: Blackmoor Mountain. This track is a very soothing and atmospheric. Starts of nice and easy, and then it starts to pick up the pace. After like a solid few minutes, it goes right back into being very calm. This is another track that I feel should be experienced while playing the game. Seeing the gorgeous winter scenery of Blackmoor Mountain really enhances the track.

Blackmoor Mountain has a very beautiful atmosphere to this track, and people will most likely get the best experience from this little song by playing the game, and getting to this area.
