New Soundtracks Reviewed: Half-Minute Hero, Demon's Souls, More
How about some Infinite Space and Mario/Luigi RPGs to spice it up?

Between the headline and sub-text, I think that covers all four soundtracks reviewed today. And yes, they're all by me (to make up for last update's "no Patrick" action).

Yuusha 30 (known in the US as Half-Minute Hero) is an RPG (among other things) for the PSP that puts gamers against the clock. The game just came out in North America this month thanks to XSEED Games (expect a review soon!). In the meantime, check out the two disc soundtrack for the game, featuring more composers than I can count on all my appendages. eww...

Infinite Space is a few months away in America. James Clark gave us an import review of the DS RPG from Sega's "Platinum Games" studio. Now, we have a review of the game's double-disc soundtrack. Unfortunately, there wasn't much good to be found on it.

Atlus USA gave us a soundtrack of Demon's Souls alongside limited edition copies of the game. The big story here is that Japanese gamers did *not* receive a soundtrack, either retail or promotional. It is exclusive to our territory. As such, we simply couldn't pass up a review.

Finally, a promo album that many collectors will be scurrying to find, the "Mario & Luigi RPG Sound Selection." Featuring music from all three games in the trilogy that spans the GBA and DS, with all music by the illustrious Yoko Shimomura, there's plenty to love about this disc of music.

So that's today's update. In the coming days, we'll have some special soundtrack updates; some accompanying game reviews, others just to highlight some awesome releases. And after all that, we have a big "beyond oldschool" update for November, wherein we review soundtracks that are older than most of our readership. It's bound to be a good time.
