Retro Video Game Soundtracks

I mentioned in another thread recently that videogame soundtracks from back on the Genesis are part of what got me into electronic music. For years, I've been stuck with youtube rips if I wanted to go back and listen to those. Last night, I decided to try and download them, and was lucky enough to run across someone who's been doing Genesis soundtracks unfiltered in all their aliased glory in lossless formats. I figured I'd share here as he still seems to be taking requests for new soundtracks if there's something you want. I also might take a look around and see if I can find a similar source for nintendo.

To the mods, I certainly don't mean to encourage copyright infringement, so I understand if you want to take this down, but I couldn't find many of these recordings elsewhere at all, and the ones I could that were commercially released were modified/remixed. These are recorded straight from the console using original hardware, which is what I wanted.

Downloads in FLAC or mp3 320 here: http://mode5.net/ost/

These are running off a personal server with consumer internet, so you're limited to 4 downloads at a time for bandwidth purposes on his end.

The thread about the process and suggestions/feedback is here (different forum):

These sound incredible. I'd gladly donate to this guy's cause for a Jewel Master rip

Awesome find! The mods have been cool about my abandonware-related postings in the past, so I hope this stays up as well.

Re: Retro Video Game Soundtracks

I take it that these games are at some sort of abandonware/public domain level now since it's sorted and all on archive.org.. So grab or play your favorite MS DOS game from here:

Re: Retro Video Game Soundtracks

Will those games run in new windows environments or do you need DOS box or do they just run straight out of the browser?

I messed around with System Shock a few years ago, you didn't even have to install it, you just ran Dos box and the game both straight from RAM.

Re: Retro Video Game Soundtracks

Thanks for reminding me I didn't have to actually pay money for the shitload of games that open up in DOSbox :p

On the plus side, I have someone to yell at when the game fails to load level 999 for the 666th time
