Weekly Shuffle #14+15: Dragon Ball music + Vocal music

Whooooo....sorry about falling behind on this. Personal life caught up to me. Luckily, it will be easy for me to get caught up.

First, the Dragon Ball music week. Don't really need to write up anything, as this article pretty much covers all the music that will soon be available for download in Dragon Ball FighterZ WITH links to songs for your enjoyment.

Click here for that article.

Now for the vocal VGM music! I figured with how often I highlighted vocal music in previous themes, I might as well make an entire theme devoted to vocal themes. Here are my highlights just for you:

Track #1: Yuzurenai Negai
From Magic Knight Rayearth (It was used in the Saturn game, so it counts)


Track #2: Super Sonic Racing
From Sonic R

Track #3: Electrical Communication
From Mega Man 8

Track #4: Brave New World
From Namco x Capcom

Track #5: Moonlight
From Mega Man X6

Might take a break this week just to get caught up in life. Weekly shuffle will return next week!

M Disk Gauntlet: Ultraman - Towards the Future


This series is dedicated to my challenges of games that meet the criteria for apricotsushi's community game along (featured on chic-pixel.com)

For January 2018, the theme was #FightingGameMonth, so of course I would pick one of the worst fighting games that I've always enjoyed, despite the negative attention it gets. The challenge I face with this game is beating it on expert mode, which I had never done.

Some of the text in this video did not convert properly, and I did not catch this until right before I started to upload. I decided to leave it as is, cause it would have meant having to convert the entire video (both versions of it) again, and I wanted to get this out as soon as I could.

Introducing the M Disk Gauntlet


M Disk Gauntlet:

A revised version of my let's play project. VGM 101, my original idea, didn't work out quite as well as I thought it would, due to technical issues that I didn't want to waste time with. Especially when I want to work on my Primer. But this, I feel, will be a little easier to manage.

The Gauntlet will consist of me challenging games that fit each of the 12 themes from Apricotsushi's Community Game Along for 2018, which was posted last night. The games I choose will either be games I have never played before, games I've only beaten through means of cheating, or games that I intend to beat on the highest difficulty. I will record the entire experience, and will upload two versions of the experience.

One with commentary, and one without commentary. Again, I want my projects to be as accessible to as many people as I can.

The games I choose will, to the best of my abilities, be a mix of older games with more modern games. Mainly because every game I challenge will be recorded off my PC. It is also possible that I might have to challenge one of the themes twice, due to being unable to challenge another due to technical limitations on my end.

I will update this post with my progress through the 2018 Community Game Along, which games I challenged, and whether or not I won or lost the challenge.

February: ???
March: ???

I am looking forward to sharing my (mostly) blind experiences with all of you!
