The track that everyone will hear in Tetris 99. This is the first track that will start the stress inducing panic. I love how they kept the flagship Tetris music as the main sound here. But, they added a heavy bass kick on the beat that is a welcome addition to the basic Tetris track … Read more Weekly Video Game Track: Defensive Battle 1
While this music can get infuriating in Pokemon Sword/Shield, there’s no denying that Hop’s Battle Theme slaps. I groaned when I would constantly see Hop ten feet in front of me, knowing I’d have to talk to him, again… But when you hear those horns start off this track, you can’t help but enjoy the … Read more Weekly Video Game Track: Hop Battle Theme
As stated in the previously featured track of Marnie’s Encounter Theme, she’s probably the character that most players latched on to as one of the more interesting NPCs in the Pokemon Sword/Shield. I love how the base theme carries throughout all the different versions of her music. This one is a much more upbeat version … Read more Weekly Video Game Track: Marnie Battle Theme
The culmination of your journey in Pokemon Sword/Shield results, as usual, with facing the champion of the Pokemon League, in this case, Leon.

However, once that Pokemon Gigantamaxes, … Read more Weekly Video Game Track: Eternatus Vs Zacian & Zamazenta Battle

It definitely gets the adrenaline pumping and raises the anxiety because you know you’ve survived … Read more Weekly Video Game Track: Defensive Battle 2
The Legend of Zelda series always has great music. However, this final theme when facing Ganon in Ocarina of Time really puts weight on what you’re doing. There’s not much to the track in general. But, the choir in the background and the dark sounding music really emphasizes the feeling that you should have.
One of the most eerie places in Chrono Trigger is Magus’ Castle. There’s no music at the beginning. Then, throughout most of the castle, it is just one uncomfortable sounding note, that is unless you get into a fight. Which is weird that getting into a battle is actually comforting since the battle music kicks … Read more Weekly Video Game Track: Magus’ Theme
