As expected for vinyl discussion on the internet, the word snob has to come up at some point. You've fulfilled your role, now please leave.

I'm also a "vinyl guy" and I don't have any LP video game soundtrack. Now I want some !

I have 3 CDs from Club Nintendo though, that's somehow a start.

turn away while you still can! :D That Last of Us release is going to bankrupt me.

Just as Far Cry 4 triple-LP already did a few weeks ago...

I wish I would have gotten the Shatter OST when I had the chance.
But eh, I got the very awesome Rockman 2 Lp with #1 /250; so I am very lucky on that front.

I've only got Superbrothers. Wanted Hotline Miami 2 but it was way too pricey to ship to Europe. I've only just come across the Shatter soundtrack but I want it quite badly now. Also going to get Blood Dragon at some point. Love me some Power Fist.

I had no idea this existed. I know the resurgence of vinyl as a thing was quite niche and cool but I didn't know there were game soundtrack vinyls.

Wouldn't have anywhere close to enough money to afford those I bet though.

This stuff is my jam. Not too interested in newer stuff, but vintage Japanese LP's of retro game music are the bee's knees. Only ones I currently have are the two Namco arcade remix albums that Haruomi Hosono (of Yellow Magic Orchestra) did.

Here's the thing about vinyl: people expect them to sound good on expensive sound systems. Here's the thing about CD and mp3: people expect them to sound good on iPods with ear buds or shitty car stereos.

What happens (generally) is this: dynamic range is artificially compressed on digital formats to make the sound 'pop' for average earbud guy. It's akin to Microsoft's thinking with black crush on Xbox.

This is made exponentially worse when you consider the compression already in play in the music production sampling process.

The result is this: albums released on vinyl tend to have greater dynamic range and subtlety even though it's technically inferior media.

Also, vinyl is analog and turntable equipment is like a musical instrument. Spend more and sound quality ramps up significantly.

I endorse this thread. I'd love some videogames vinyl to play on my Thorens.

Has a strange selection indeed, and quite a lot of tracks per side. They might be ~1 minute long versions or something similar.

Would have chosen a lot of Megaman 3 tracks as well, now there are NONE for some reason...

and even so, monsters at Hot Topic for not accepting international orders, can a gaffer hook me up with shipping to Europe? :D

They just "released" the Mad Max soundtrack as a pre-order, so they will just take all orders and after that they will press as many copies as needed. I think they would do the same with The Last of Us.

This thread may as well be a guy mugging me on the street (then randomly giving records in exchange...or something.)


I have Hotline Miami 2, GTAV, and Retro City Rampage (black.) At my local shop, the guys working there had something called "Best Of NES" which was a bunch of random NES songs pressed on vinyl and wasn't for sale or anything. Apparently some random guy around here independently pressed them and also did Mega Man 2? It's not SpaceLab9. I might be getting a copy of the NES one, which I'm very excited about. Rare won't even begin to describe it haha


Video game LPs are great. I buy them, listen to them once, then I'm like "i'm so glad I own this" then on the shelf it goes lol

There's a ton of unjustified snobbery around with vinyl elitism, though, so I can see where he got that opinion. Vinyl isn't always better, though some people swear it is.

Back on topic, though, thanks for the link. There's some good stuff on here.

If you're getting gritty sound on vinyl, you're doing it wrong. Also quite ironically, modern albums are the ones that benefit the most from vinyl when they get a dedicated mix.

Dear God...the inhumane things I would do for a Persona 4 Golden soundtrack on vinyl...

Gonna keep my eye on that Mega Man news. The songs they picked are kinda....but I'll buy it anyways as long as it's not stupidly overpriced. That is, I'll buy it after they do a regular pressing. Picture discs are ugly.

Hot Topic is the shit for vinyl sometimes. I've found some great albums there.

-Motion City Soundtrack-Split with Matchbook Romance and I Am the Movie.
-Saves The Day-Stay What You Are
-Millencollin-Pennybridge Pioneers
-Modern Baseball-Sports

All found at Hot Topic. Crazy but it makes sense when my brother told me the guy that buys the rights to albums for Hot Topic listens mostly to pop-punk. Explains why they print so many albums I like.

It's hard as most are being released under small labels. The best we have are those two links in the OP.

I was really pleased that we did the vinyl release of the Shatter soundtrack. It was great that we were able to celebrate the success of the music that way, and the team did a great job making a very stylish package (and the translucent blue vinyl itself looks great).

Module, the artist of the soundtrack, even went back and remastered the whole soundtrack specifically to get the best sound out of the vinyl. It's arguably the best version.

We even did a little promo video for it back in the day here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ft5KI6ZIqrc

Wow. I'd really love to pick this up. I have the soundtrack in digital form, but shit.

Glad that I wasn't the only one who hadn't heard of the Mega Man release!

Regarding organization, should we start a Discogs collection for Video Game soundtracks? That might be the best way to organize everything.

I fully approve of any spiffy full remasters of the Streets of Rage series and any other big time FM Synth packing classics---I can scarcely imagine how good the entire trilogy would turn out when all is said and done if they really put some serious effort on it.
