      Today on Epic Game Music I did an original guitar cover of Jim Sterling’s The Jimquisition Theme . The OST was composed by Drill Queen. This is a remix of a song entitled “Born Depressed” also stylized as BoRn DePresSed.

      The Jimquisition is a weekly YouTube video series in which Jim Sterling discusses current issues surrounding video games. Such topics include unethical business practices in the video game industry, gender issues and early access games. The series originally started on Destructoid’s YouTube channel and was later moved to The Escapist's channel. As of June 2016, his other series include Best of Steam Greenlight, where he watches and comments on poorly made games and games that have been sold only using unaltered, pre-purchased assets (known as "asset flipping"), gameplays of different games released on Steam, often games of poor quality, Nitpick Theater, where he speaks intensely about issues within gaming that would usually not be noticed, itch.io tasty, a series where he plays video games available on itch.io under various topics, and Greenlight Good Stuff, a series where he makes videos about good game trailers on Steam Greenlight.

      His main gameplay series is Jimpressions (formerly known as "Squirty Play") which are done in the style of a Let's play series, where he talks over his own gameplay. Sterling has often spoken against sexism in gaming. He is open about the fact that his position on this subject has slowly evolved.

      In November 2014, Sterling announced that he was leaving The Escapist and intended to seek funding for his work independently through Patreon. He has also stated the desire to go back to writing articles and doing podcasts, which he wasn't able to do since he left Destructoid. but has since done on his own website (thejimquisition.com), creating "The Podquisition", a podcast that he shares with Gavin Dunne and Laura K Buzz. He started up a second podcast "The Spin-off Doctors" in which he and Conrad Zimmerman analyze movies which are based on video games, though they have mentioned they may move into comic book and other geek culture territory eventually.

      Today on Epic Game Music I did an original guitar cover of The Stranger Things Main Theme. The OST was composed by Kyle Dixon & Michael Stein. This is a remix of a song entitled “Stranger Things” or “Stranger Things Title Theme”

      Stranger Things is an American science fiction horror web television series created by the Duffer Brothers. It was written and directed by Matt and Ross Duffer and executive-produced by Shawn Levy. It stars an ensemble cast of Winona Ryder, David Harbour, Finn Wolfhard, Millie Bobby Brown, Gaten Matarazzo, Caleb McLaughlin, Natalia Dyer, Charlie Heaton, Cara Buono, and Matthew Modine. The plot follows the disappearance of a young boy, and a telekinetic girl who helps his friends in their search, while the boy's older brother and the town police chief start their own investigations.

      The show is set in 1980s Indiana and is a homage to '80s[6] pop culture, channeling the works of Steven Spielberg, John Carpenter, Stephen King, and George Lucas, among others.

      The show was released on Netflix on July 15, 2016. It received positive reviews for its characterization, pacing, atmosphere, acting, soundtrack, directing, writing, and homages to 1980s genre films.

    • Pokemon Go "Battle! Wild Pokemon" Guitar Cover // Epic Game Music

      Today on Epic Game Music I did an orignal guitar cover of Battle! Wild Pokemon from Pokemon Go. The OST was composed by Junichi Masuda and Go Ichinose. This is a remix of a song entitled "Battle! Wild Pokemon" or "Wild Encounter Theme"

      Pokémon Go (stylized as Pokémon GO) is a free-to-play location-based augmented reality mobile game, developed by Niantic and published by The Pokémon Company as part of the Pokémon franchise. It was released worldwide in July 2016 for iOS and Android devices.

      The game allows players to capture, battle, and train virtual Pokémon who appear throughout the real world. It makes use of GPS and the camera of compatible devices. Although the game is free-to-play, it supports in-app purchases of additional gameplay items. An optional companion Bluetooth wearable device, the Pokémon Go Plus, is planned for future release and will alert users when Pokémon are nearby. It can be viewed as an emerging massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG) although the social elements are not directly internal in the game.

      The game received a mixed critical reception, and attracted negative attention due to reports of accidents and public nuisance associated with it. However, it was the most downloaded smartphone app in the United States in its first three days of release and was a boon to the stock value of Nintendo, which owns part of The Pokémon Company.

    • Donkey Kong Country "Aquatic Ambience" Guitar Cover // Epic Game Music

      Today on Epic Game Music I did an orignal guitar cover of Aquatic Ambiance from Donkey Kong Country. The OST was composed by David Wise who is the developer of the game. This is a remix of a song entitled Aquatic Ambiance or Underwater Theme.

      onkey Kong Country is a 1994 platforming video game developed by Rare and published by Nintendo for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System. It was first released in November 1994, and under the name Super Donkey Kong (スーパードンキーコング Sūpā Donkī Kongu?)in Japan. The game was later re-released for the Game Boy Color (2000), Game Boy Advance (2003), Wii Virtual Console (2007), Wii U Virtual Console (2014), and New Nintendo 3DS (2016) with a perfect pixel mode.

      The game is set on "Donkey Kong Island" and centres around Donkey Kong and his nephew Diddy Kong, who must recover their stolen hoard of bananas from King K. Rool and the Kremlings. Development of the game first began shortly after Rare's Tim and Chris Stamper ran experiments with a Silicon Graphics workstation, rendering realistic 3D sprites. Nintendo became interested in Rare's work and soon acquired 49% of the company which culminated in the production of a new title using Alias and SGI technology for the SNES console. The Stamper brothers expressed an interest to create a standalone Donkey Kong game, and assembled a team of 12 to work on the game over an 18-month development cycle.

      Donkey Kong Country is the first Donkey Kong game that was not produced or directed by Shigeru Miyamoto, the character's original creator. It was directed by Tim Stamper instead, although Miyamoto was still involved with the project. Following an intense marketing campaign, Donkey Kong Country received critical acclaim and more than nine million copies were sold worldwide, making it the second-best-selling SNES game.

    • Undertale Bergentrückung + ASGORE Music Video // Epic Game Music

      Hey this is the first 4K episode that I filmed at the YouTube Space Toronto! Today on Epic Game Music I did an orignal guitar cover of ASGORE from Undertale. The OST was composed by Toby Fox aka FwugRadiation who is the developer of the game. This is a remix of a song entitled Bergentrückung + ASGORE

      Undertale (also stylized as UnderTale or UNDERTALE) is a role-playing video game developed and published by indie developer tobyfox. The game was written, designed, and composed for by creator Toby Fox, with additional artwork by Temmie Chang, and was released for Microsoft Windows and OS X on 15 September 2015.

      In Undertale, the player controls a human child as they navigate the fictional Underground: a large, secluded region underneath the surface of the Earth. The inhabitants of the Underground are called "monsters", a diverse and intelligent group who have been banished from the surface following a war with humanity. The child interacts with many monsters on their quest to return to the surface, with the player making decisions on whether to kill or befriend them. These choices affect the outcome of the game to a large degree, with the dialogue and story outcome changing based on their decisions.

      The game received acclaim from video game critics, with particular praise for its writing and characters. Reviewers enjoyed the game's intuitive yet deep combat system, the contrast of its witty humor with a dark story, as well as its references to older role-playing games.
