After visiting Nashicon at the University of South Carolina, I met some folks that gave me good leads on getting video game and anime soundtracks. I’m returning the favor. You always need to share when it comes to music and good stuff such as OSTs.
Here’s some links that you should know if you love video game music or anime music:
* Galbadia Hotel – Go here for video game soundtracks and check out the forums (you need to register to take advantage of the links) for more obscure stuff. Register and help them out. They’re pretty good overall and they need donations to stay alive.
* In the Groove music – All music from the first two games in the series in .zip format. The ITG song folders contain all songs in .ogg format. If you need to convert these files to .mp3, open them in Winamp and use its converter plug-in called LAME .mp3 to convert them. WARNING: This file is huge. It’s 300MB+.
* SNES music – Music from Nintendo’s greatest system
* Videogame Tunes
* Sound Test – A database of music for gamers.
* Zenius-I-Vanisher – An awesome site. If you’re at all into DDR, go here for just about anything from every DDR game ever made. You should register to help them out. I use them primarily for my Stepmania collection.
* Metroid Database – Anything and everything Metroid related. Even if you go there just to read stuff on Metroid, that would be great. Their collection of Metroid sounds is the best I have ever seen. And they are extremely high quality.
Check out our video game music packs in the multimedia section of our main site for some of our favorite games. They are just a taste of good music.
