Monday Links: RULES OF NATURE Edition

While I usually wouldn’t link to petitions for video games on Monday Links, this one has actually been acknowledged by SEGA and has a chance of resulting in something happening, so I’ll let this one slide. If you want to let SEGA know that you want games like Bayonetta, Vanquish, Virtua Fighter 5: Final ShowdownValkyria Chronicles and other such games on PC, go support it. In other news: enough stuff happened in the past week for me to do a Monday Links. So here goes:

SEGA has sliced the prices of some of their old PSP games on PSN permanently. Here’s a list of the games with their original and slashed prices:

Alien Syndrome: $9.99………$4.99
Crazy Taxi: Fare Wars$9.99………$4.99
Crush: $9.99………$6.99
Sonic Rivals$9.99………$6.99

These price cuts do not apply to Europe (at least not yet). Because these games are being sold on PSN they can also be played on the Playstation Vita.

Indie Music Bundle Features “Best Of” Valkyria Chronicles Soundtrack

The Humble Indie Bundle Team began their latest bundle that is a collection focusing on music soundtracks rather than games. In fact, theres only two soundtracks in this bundle that’s related to any video game series. Featured artists include MC Frontalot, They Might Be Giants, Christopher Tin (Civilization), Jonathan Coulton (Portal 2, Left for Dead), and the sole video game soundtrack featuring the ‘Best of’ collection of songs from Sega’s Valkyria Chronicles series, including Valkyria Chronicles 3 courtesy of series composer Hitoshi Sakimoto.

In addition to Valkyria Chronicles, Sakimoto is also credited to working on other Sega projects as well as Square-Enix, Capcom and more on titles such as Odin Sphere, Tekken 6, The Pinball of the Dead and to go as obscure as possible, Gunstar Heroes on Game Gear. The list goes on for quite a bit, and his official site lists the entire discography of his works.

Just like other Indie Bundle packages, you’re given the choice to name your price, allocate who gets what (Split between the composers, to charities and/or to the website host,) then you’re all set to download all of the soundtracks, DRM free offered in *.mp3 and *.flac formats.

Admittably, I’m just getting it for the Valkyria soundtrack and some TMBG. Also if you go past the average you can get a set of remixes from OK Go.

They did that Nintendo 3DS music video.



It’s All That White Water Rafting: SOA Community Event Video

As you can see by this picture, I had a camera at the 2010 SEGA of America Community Event. I’ve put together a video that’s exclusive to The Sonic Stadium’s podcast, The Sonic Show. If you want to go see it, head on over there.  WATCH us suck at Valkyria Chronicles. SEE Ken Balough meet his doppleganger, Ben Kalough.  LISTEN as we critique Sonic 4: Episode 1 at the feedback session.  OBSERVE as nobody loses their cool at the meeting, like you all assumed like d-bags.

It was a great time.  Watch the video here.
