The Twin Galaxies Video Game Trading Card Exhibit at the ICON Gallery in Fairfield, IA
Genuinely one of the most amazing weekends of my life.
…The REAL Sushi-X signed it?
Pac-Man might not seem like a series known for its soundtracks, those unforgettable arcade sounds still manage to inspire some great tracks. The soundtrack to Pac-Man World Rally is especially impressive, incorporating classic tunes into new forms. The Cloud Garden theme cleverly works in the classic Start music, the Act 1 theme (“They Meet”) from Ms. Pac-Man, and the Forest theme from the obscure SNES title Pac-In-Time.
Who brought us such a rockin’ mix of this odd collection of tunes, you ask? Why, none other than Dweezil Zappa (rock guitarist and son of the legendary Frank Zappa) and Tommy Tallarico (composer and co-founder of Video Games Live)!
We can’t imagine what bizarre events led to this collaboration, but we’re glad it happened. Enjoy!
Our friends in London, England are lucky as can be; they have an extremely fine Namco Station situated right next to the world famous London Eye ferris wheel!
Located at the London County Hall in Lambeth, London, it is on the South Bank of the River Thames. This Namco location also has a very unique “Lasermaze”, in which players are challenged to move through a maze of lasers Mission Impossible style.
The Super Xevious LP, released 30 years ago on August 29, 1984
Super Xevious’ original electronic chiptune music was composed by Yuriko Keino and Junko Ozawa, and former Happy End and Yellow Magic Orchestra member Haruomi Hosono recorded an arranged dance/synthpop version of the game’s theme tune, which is contained on this LP.
