Remember when space was the coolest?

The ridiculous Animation Domination YouTube channel puts out a lot of awesome short cartoons. Their latest one is a love letter to the '80s and '90s full of pop culture references, including plenty towards gaming. The chiptune portion of the song was also done by Pete Berkman of Anamanaguchi fame.

Chiptunes plus '80s electronic music is quite delicious

Ubiktune is at it again, this time with a new artist named Monomer who's debut album, Quite Operational, combines '80s-tinged electronic music with 8-bit accents. While I'd normally pass on something that so heavily emphasize...

World 1-2 is insane, and I must have it in my earholes

Okay, I have no idea how this album is even possible. How do you get the composers of the original Ninja Gaiden and Mega Man, Akira Yamaoka (Silent Hill), Austin Wintory (Journey), Stemage of Metroid Metal, Module (Shatter), ...

Mega Man 2 OST now on sale, but beware of audio hiccups

Any debate over the best Classic series Mega Man soundtrack typically boils down to MM2 and MM3. Both games sport some of the best music on the NES, but when push comes to shove, MM2 will edge out ever so slightly in a popula...

Halo 4 OST Volume 2 is everything I wanted out of Halo 4 photo
Halo 4 OST Volume 2 is everything I wanted out of Halo 4

Welcome back to Note Worthy, our monthly soundtrack round-up. This issue marks one year of Note Worthy, and I'm changing up things a bit with formatting. In the past, I've featured our ten monthly reviews in alphabetical order, giving each album equal weight, but I want to experiment a bit with this format and present it in a way that lets readers sift through and pick up on the most important releases of the month first with a more in-depth look.

With that said, Halo 4 Original Soundtrack Vol. 2 gets top honors this month, as it provides everything that was missing from the first volume in terms of ambiance and bad ass soundscapes. Other notable releases include Magical Chase and Final Fantasy XI: Seekers of Adoulin.

As always, enjoy streaming samples courtesy of our SoundCloud account and let us know what you think of the new format! Here's to another year of Note Worthy!

Atreyu! Falcor! Atreyu? Falcor?

Game music remixer Dj CUTMAN has organized a bunch of tunes that he's produced for the video group Underbelly into a nifty pay-what-you want pack. Underbelly Beats & Remixes contain a few straight-up NES arrangements and beat compilations of Super Mario Bros. 2, Metroid, and Mega Man 2, plus a few other surprises.

One of those surprises is a chiptune version of the main theme of The NeverEnding Story -- not the joke track from The Lonely Island linked above, of course. Then there is his medley of GoldenEye 007 tracks, which reminded of just how badass the music in that game was.

Go on and sample, chilluns!

eJay Pure lets you easily build your own chiptunes

Not everyone can make chiptunes. Look, I'm a classically trained musician and I have trouble making them. My last creation sounded like a TurboGrafx-16 farted and then poured acid on itself.  iOS and Android app eJay Pu...
