My favorite part of the week!

Chururi Chururira (?) - Denpagumi.inc

Prepare for sensory overload. This video is as energetic and boisterous as any other Denpa video. This time, however, it's paired with a ridiculous video that seems to just try and be as crazy as it can. I definitely don't think release is as tight as the last one (Sakura Apparition), but it's still a pretty decent song.

Wimp - Back-On

This is one of my early favorites from this year. A rocking beat mixed with some fantastic vocals from both the male lead and the guest female Lil' Fang. I absolutely adore the chorus--the two voices and racing tempo mix together beautifully. I've easily listened to this 100+ times since its debut in March.

Adrenaline - Beast

For those of you who aren't aware, Beast is a predominantly Korean male pop group that occasionally does songs in Japanese. This is easily one of their best Japanese releases. I LOVE the main beat/riff--it packs so much energy and sticks in my head for hours after I hear it. The singing is okay, but I don't usually prefer male groups (as you may have noticed already). Still, even with my predisposition to dislike songs like these, I really enjoy it.

Another decent, but not great, week of KPOP videos. Here's what I have to share.

Delight is back (with new members and a new name, if I read it right?) with Hate You! This is technically an EDM song--one trying to masquerade as an upbeat pop song at the beginning--but it's a pretty promising song in my opinion. The bridge is fantastic and leads into an decently memorable chorus.

Heyne is a relatively new artist who just released a new video for Red Lie. I don't think the song itself is very interesting, but I do like Heyne's voice quite a bit--a bit deeper and sassier than your average cutesy pop star. It does feel a bit like she's trying to crib some style from Kyary (yikes, a JPOP reference! Don't shoot me!), but she does it well. I like the video too, which uses some frame tricks to great effect.

This last one is the most interesting--Wish List from Taurine. It's a very unique sounding song, reminiscent of a much older sound complete with (fantastic) harmonizing vocals and a jazzy beat. The lyrics are a bit silly and the song lacks energy, but it's a fascinating change of pace for the genre.

This is the only thing that's inspired me to take a screenshot. Really eye-catching and very early on too.

Mine is two words flipped backwards and stuck together. It's slightly juvenile now, as I created this name in 2003 or so when I was like 12 or 13, but I still like it. It's stuck as my name since I've used it so much in games.

I'm rather unexcited about everything coming out in October (at least, that I know of). Shadow of Mordor could be interesting, but I need more information before I know for sure. Alien: Isolation seems a bit dicey, so I want to see it in action before I commit. I don't know what to think about The Evil Within due to its inconsistent coverage. Evolve seems entirely uninteresting to me as someone who isn't a huge fan of multiplayer-only games. I have long since given up caring about Assassin's Creed. Even if DA was still coming out in October, I don't think I would have necessarily played it, since it isn't the sequel to DA:O that I want.

It's just a bunch of games that I'm not convinced about yet. I may end up buying one--or all--of these games, but right now I couldn't care less about the lot.

NG+ is hard for me just because I often don't want to start playing a game immediately again right when I finish it. I'm the type of person who likes to play a wide variety of games, moving to the next upon completion. Furthermore, I feel that if I don't play a NG+ right away, I tend to forget enough about how a game plays that I want to start it over again.

@civid: I have found what I think to be all the Persona soundtracks, including P3P and Golden, on Japanese iTunes. It does take a bit of searching, however, since they are only searchable in Japanese (ペルソナ seems to do the job as a search). They are pretty expensive, but they at least they are all available? Also, the Bayonetta soundtrack does not seem to be on there.

For awhile, game soundtracks made up the majority of my music library due to a few music bundles I got cheaply and my lack of desire to purchase music (instead of just listening to it on Youtube). Nowadays, JPOP/KPOP make up a far greater percentage of my (vastly increased in just a year or so) library. I really like some of it, like the Nier soundtrack, but I feel I get tired of game music if I hear too much of it back-to-back.

@johnlocke: You're supposed to give them to friends. It would be kinda silly for them to give you three codes for just yourself when you can only redeem one.
