Okay, I never got through the second stage of Marble Madness. I think the NES/arcade classic is universally regarded as a hard ass game, but from what little I did experience, I loved the music. Grant "Stemage" Henry of Metroid Metal apparently also loves the game and its soundtrack (I think he even beat it!) and has prepared an amazing remix album titled Where Good Marbles go to Die filled with 30 minutes of dreamy rock-oriented tributes featuring a slew of special guests including Disasterpeace and a ton of amazing guitarists and arrangers from the game music band/arrangement scene.

This is some top-notch work, although I admit I love the first three tracks most as they're the only ones I was able to hear in-game. I'd say things transition from dreamy with the opening theme, "60 (ft. Disasterpeace)" to jubilant in "Pipe Dream (ft Lauren Liebowitz of Descendants of Erdrick)" to crazy rockin' shred fest in the final track, "High Roller (ft. VikingGuitar)." Best of all, the album is available for name-your-own-price on Bandcamp and is even being released on a snazzy-looking cassette tape (seen below) for $5 USD.

Check it out on Bandcamp and let us know what you think of Marble Madness and its music. Any other classics that you'd like to see Stemage take on next?

Flex those muscles, Machamp

This is vaguely the same footage of Pokkén Tournament we've seen over the past couple weeks, but it's a direct capture of the game, so what the hell. Good recap of the current roster, though do note that the voice over and text are in Japanese. Long way to go before this'll get localized. What's going on with Pikachu (starting at 1:25)? That expression is Kirby-in-the-USA angry.more
