I’m sometimes surprised by how little it takes for me to get back into a game after shelving it. I shelved Bionic Commando (2009) way back when because I got stuck on a boss. Yesterday I put it back in and beat the boss on the first try. I fell asleep last night thinking about the theme from this song. It’s beautiful. It’s easily one of my favorite video game theme songs of all time.
It’s evocative of 8-bit themes and it’s far better than the game deserves.
