A Kingdom Hearts Medley by Rush Garcia

Here, have some more music!

As you can probably imagine, music plays a huge role in our love of video games. Not only does music in video games help set the mood, we adore hearing how people can remix or put their own spin on iconic medleys. This one, for example, is a Kingdom Hearts Medley by Rush Garcia.

Rush Garcia takes beautiful video game music and rearranges them as orchestra pieces, coming out with amazing results. Not only does Rush Garcia do fan compilations with video game music, there’s also plenty of original pieces to listen to. We hope you enjoy Rush Garcia’s work as much as we do!

Pokemon Medley by Tina Guo

There has been plenty of news about Pokemon fairly recently, such as Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon coming out this November, Pokken Tournament for September, and Pokemon GO’s first anniversary this summer. What better way to celebrate these lovely milestones than by blasting the music?

Tina Guo is a cellist that we recently discovered while on one of our many trips to our local Barnes and Noble bookstore. While browsing, our ears perked up upon hearing familiar game music coming from the overhead speakers, such as Legend of Zelda, Super Mario Bros. and, of course, Pokemon. Leaping down the escalator, we made our way to the music department on the first floor to ask what was playing. The employee told us all about Tina Guo and her newest album Game On.

While another video game fan had bought the last album that Barnes and Noble had that day, we did find Tina on YouTube and Spotify, and she’s been a delight to listen to. Here’s her Pokemon Medley from her Game On album, and we hope you enjoy it like we do!

Friday Favorites: Nerdy Nummies

Double Jump Kris MiiHappy Friday everyone!

It’s June, and I hope everyone is having a great start to the summer months (well, if you live in an area where there is a summer). Summer brings thoughts of cookouts and all sorts of baking. A while ago, I had made a post about Rosanna Pansino and her fun YouTube channel dedicated to nerdy recipes. Here are a few of my favorites today!

Pokemon MooMoo Milkshakes

What’s better than a nice cold milkshake on a hot summer day? Not much, except for maybe a chocolate milkshake. Named after the iconic treat that was first featured in the second generation of Pokemon games, MooMoo milkshakes are a simple treat to make.

Hyrule Rupee Cookies

Cookies and milk go hand in hand, so why not have some delicious fruit-flavored sugar cookies to go with those milkshakes? Rosanna creates three different kinds of sugar cookies to match the various pieces of Hyrule currency from the Legend of Zelda franchise. These cookies look so cute, too!

Super Mario Question Block Surprise Cake

 

Surprise cakes look like so much fun, with all the candy or prizes spilling out when the cake is cut! While this cake may be a bit time-consuming to make, it’d be the perfect dessert for a fun video game night with friends!

Do you watch Nerdy Nummies? Any certain recipes or treats that remind you of your favorite games?
