The GameNGroove Picks: Super Mario Medley, 8-Bit Radiohead and Disco Assassin's Creed
There's nothing worse than being near a rainy day, especially if you're trying to figure out a way to combat the monotanous clatter of a keyboard for hours on end. Which is why it's time to get into the video game spirit with some choice beats powered by in-game remixes, intentional reimaginations and the boombastic stylings of Reggie Watts while playing Mass Effect 3.
Polygon brings us "I've Always Been With You," a remix of in-game dialogue and music from "Assassin's Creed: Revelations" by Reverse Enginears. It's weirdly soothing to hear Ezio go on and on about how he'll always be with us, but the reformatted beats by the Enginears is pleasant enough to tap along to on repeat.
The 8-Bit Radiohead albums for "Kid A" and "OK Computer" are the nerdy labor of love we can get behind by Quinton Sung. If you're already a devout listener to chiptunes, this won't cause the hair on the back of your head to stand up and shout for the purity of Thom York's original digital screaming. (via Pitchfork)
This cover of "Super Mario 3" at first may creep you out when Paper Face Mario turns to look at the camera, but it becomes adorable when Pipe Drummer tries to hide behidn his pipe blanket. But the trio at Moonbow Music have a few more video game related medleys, namely from "Chrono Trigger" and "Final Fantasy." (via Dorkly)
