Happy 40th Birthday Konami!

From everyone in the OLR community! without you this show and website wouldn't be what it is today!

Konami Week Honourable Mentions:
Contra 3
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 3

Top OLR community Konami moment:

DarkTetsuya: Watching my mom try her hand at SotN

I think just about everyone has a story about their parent trying to get in to video games with their kids. Even if it doesn't take it's still a great moment and I'm a sucker for family togetherness.

More of your Konami moments after the jump!

I love that song! - Let's fly to the Moon! PDF Print E-mail

It's so peaceful up there in the moon... well, not so peaceful...

Today's track is The Moon from Duck Tales

Please note due to copyright issues I can not make this song available for you to download directly.

Duck Tales was great platformer out of the NES era made by Capcom. Not only did they do a great job with the game and levels, the music was pretty awesome too, especially the Moon stage. It's so mystifying and calmed in the beginning of the song, something that resembles space itself. Then the real song starts giving us something more upbeat, living an adventure of a lifetime, IN SPACE!

This track is considered by many one of the best songs in a video game ever, and I think we can all really hear why.

Also brentalfloss has done a pretty funny lyrical rendition of the song.


If you want to post your opinion about today's track or you've got a song suggestion you would like to see featured from a game let us know in the comments and we'll see what we can do about featuring it in an up coming article!

Number 1. Beatmania (Series) PDF Print E-mail

Over the past week we've explored Ninjas, espionage, horror stories and vampires, but finally we present OLR's number 1 Konami game series - Beatmania!

Released in 1997 for the arcades in Japan, Beatmania is a music game where you play as a DJ mixing tracks and tapping the keyboard. There are five keys and a turntable to control with, and you have to hit (or scratch) the notes as the fall down the screen. As you tap it adds beats to the song, and playing extra notes serves no penatly, but allows the player to add their own twist on things.
