I like to think I'm very sensible when it comes to my shopping habits. The only game-related doodads I'd typically ever spend an exorbitant amount of wampums on are Mega Man-related. However, I'm also a sucker for big-ass music collections, such as the 19-disc behemoth that was the Akumajo Dracula Best Music Collection Box (which I will own the day my last ounce of fiscal responsibility leaves me).

In May, Capcom will be releasing Biohazard Sound Chronicle II, a limited-run six-CD collection featuring music from Resident Evil games released after 2005. It contains music from Umbrella Chronicles, The Darkside Chronicles, Resident Evil 5, and the upcoming 3DS game (I'm assuming Revelations).

The box set is follow-up to a 2005 collection that will also be reissued, and that one contains tracks from all mainline REs up to 4 including Code Veronica and 0. The sets will cost 8190 yen (~$97) each, which is actually a good bargain once you get over the hurdle of paying such an obscene sum upfront.

Unfortunately, there is a downside: only the Chronicles games have their full OSTs represented. The rest are "best of" selections, so some tracks are left on the cutting room floor. Still, wouldn't one of these boxes be a lovely conversation piece? Or am I the only nutjob here who's seriously considering these?
