    So apparently the deal has been extended to November 12 so if you missed out on this yesterday, it's still set at a really good price for a few more days.

    No Katawa Shoujo? What?

    By the way, those first three tracks alone make it worth it. Then there's Deus Ex.

    Let me just drop this here


    Way more music and a much better selection too. You will hear amazing game themes you've never heard before on there!

    The Arkham City Theme was amazing, and one of my favorite pieces of music that came out last year.

    Am I a dick for just listening to the handful I wanted to hear on Youtube? I don't know why anyone would ever try to do another version of One Winged Angel after the ridiculous (awesome) version from Advent Children. I liked the Sonic and Metroid ones a lot though.

    It's absolutely fantastic is what I think of it. Dragon Roost Island is a great piece of music normally, and that's a great rendition of it. That version of One-Winged Angel is awesome, the Sonic the Hedgehod Suite is great, the Deus Ex: Human Revolution Theme is great, the Luigi's Mansion theme is great, the Chrono Trigger theme is great...

    I'm still not sure about a fully orchestrated version of Still Alive, but it's pretty good I guess.

    Awesome soundtrack, well worth the four dollars, and then some.

    No Hotline Miami? What?

    Edit: I just imagined an orchestra playing hydrogen, what a funny image.

    I loved the first album so im looking forward to listening to this. The Mass Effect 2 suicide mission was brilliant on the first one.

    Looks like it's only available in the US :/ Would definitely have purchased it otherwise.

    Exactly. Hotline Miami's music is just a bunch of repetitive computer noise.

    Anyone else think these are becoming increasing unnecessary and only cater to specific franchises?

    edit: where are these?

    They got some Luigi's Mansion in there? Maybe they do know what they're talking about...

    Why didn't they do the Ocean theme from Wind Waker?

    Dragoon Roost is awesome too though.

    An extended overworld theme would have been the best track to hear from Wind Waker, but I'll take it.

    No base music from Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn? What?

    Anyways it's pretty damn good, and I'm fairly happy with their selection unlike last time, but most of the songs aren't any better than they were originally.

    Just bought it, and then proceeded to get other videogames soundtracks. The Nier and Xenoblade soundtracks are really good, which naturally led me to buy Nier (don't have a Wii). This is a dangerous use of money.

    Diablo 3? Diablo 2 blew it out of the water, especially the OST.
