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.

Return of the Obra Dinn has a playable demo

Did I ever tell you that as a child I was fascinated with the idea of ghost ships? Well, I was -- and I guess you could say that I still am in one way or another. I grew up reading about the accounts of mysterious vessels lik...more

First else Heart.Break() trailer reminds me it exists

Everyone remembers else Heart.Break(), right? Of course you do, because it was on my "Top 30 indies to look out for in 2013" list! There was very little information on the game at that point, and apparently I thought it woul...more
