A couple weeks ago, Jayson Napolitano buzzed a gusher about World 1-2, a landmark music project organized by Mohammed Taher's Koopa Soundworks and Dj CUTMAN's GameChops net labels. They gathered some of the best music talents throughout game history, from the NES era through to the modern indie scene. The full album has been released a day earlier than expected, so go snag it off Bandcamp or Loudr for $10 or iTunes for $11.99 (fuggin' Apple tax).

On the composer side, we've got Manami Matsumae (Mega Man, Shovel Knight), Keiji Yamagishi (Ninja Gaiden), Akira Yamaoka (Silent Hill), Austin Wintory (Journey), Eirik Suhrke (Spelunky), and Module (Shatter, Robot Unicorn Attack 2). On the music arranger side, we've got ABSRDST, Ben Briggs, halc, Danimal Cannon (Armcannon, Metroid Metal), Stemage (Metroid Metal), Cory Johnson (post-rock Zelda album), and Video Game Orchestra. And that's not even the full lineup!

World 1-2's 20 tracks span all manner of genres and consist of original numbers as well as game arrangements, sourcing titles like Metroid Prime, Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EPSuper Mario World, Dear Esther, Tetris, and the Famicom-only Captain Tsubasa II, curiously enough. No doubt you'll find something to enjoy in this fine spread. If you can't, then you simply hate music.

Aaru's Awakening is all about movement

I’ve been interested in Aaru’s Awakening ever since its announcement captivated me with its hand-drawn art style. It’s pretty hard to pass up playing a game that looks the way Aaru’s Awakening does. Fr...more

Read the writing on the wall with Invisible, Inc.

Turn-based tactical espionage. Those words were all it took to sell me on the idea of Invisible, Inc. Going into the PAX demo, I knew I would have to be cunning, thoughtful, and sneaky if I wanted to successfully steal intell...more
