Not sure if this is the right forum for this, but I figured folks might appreciate it. I'm not sure if it's the same thing Tommy Tallarico did with with the his music tour, but it does sound pretty amazing. Just a heads up, not sure how long this will be available for free as a promotion.

Note that the zip archives appear to be broken, but you can still download it individually.

If you go up a level, there are two other collections of music available in this promotion, but it's all classical.

Yeah and the zip link didn't work for me either

There have been much less relevant things on here believe me ;p

...And thanks for the info, i'm always looking for different takes on my favourite game themes.

Really cool stuff. The recording quality is pretty good too

EDIT: Their version of the Tetris theme is fantastic

Very nice quality.

I'm just surprising Advent Rising has a song on the list. The song is great, but it's a wild game amongst all of these big names!

(and so people know, this seems to more be "Great songs from popular game series" and not truly the "greatest" game music. Though, still amazing compositions of these songs. Well worth checking out!)

II!!!!! Of course Amon Tobin helps on the Splinter Cell: Conviction Soundtrack. It all makes sense now.

Oh, since Angry Birds have sold gazillion copies it can be considered to be in the list for one of the greatest game music.

edit. Well this was mentioned already.

Great stuff. The Battlefield 2 Theme always gets me amped.

Looks like the promotion is dead. They probably got hammered too hard. Sorry, folks.

Could anyone perhaps re-upload the .wav files they had up. I got all their .mp3's but they're all 185kbps :'(
