True Gaming Song of the Week – October 05, 2008
Hey everyone welcome to another edition of True Gaming, Song of the Week. My choice for this week is Clanker’s Cavern Exterior from Banjo Kazooie! Just as a side note, I am a huge fan of the Banjo series, and I want Rare to go back to Nintendo, but enough about that. This song was composed by the masterful hands of Grant Kirkhope. Grant Kirkhope is the first British Composer that I have covered on the Song of the Week. Mr. Kirkhope is behind many great titles that I am sure we have all played, such as, Viva Pinata, Perfect Dark, GoldenEye 007, Donkey Kong 64, Grabbed by the Ghoulies, and of course the Banjo Kazooie series.
Now onto Banjo Kazooie, if you have never played the two mainstream titles in the series, you really should. The games are both very good platformers for the N64. The 3rd main title will be coming out on the Xbox 360 this fall. The gameplay is comical, yet sometimes serious. There are many different weapons and skills that you can learn in the game, and whenever you save and quit, you get to see what an evil babe Grunty becomes with Tootie’s cuteness. Plus…there’s Mumbo, whats cooler?
