31 Days - Day 19: Through the Lonely Mountain


Hello everyone and welcome to day 19 of 31 Days. Today’s Song is:

The Legend of Zelda Majoras Mask - Mountain Village

Mountain Village shares its core theme with the other 4 pre-dungeon areas, those being Southern Swamp, Ikana Valley, and Great Bay Coast. They always sounded sad and even a bit off putting to me. When you really think about the state of these four areas the somber tone is rather fitting. A sad song made for a decrepit slice of land.

If I had to pick 2 of the worst I would probably pick Mountain Village and Ikana Valley, with Great Bay coming in at a close second. Ikana is full of death and its theme captures that really well. Mountain Village has something else to it. Perhaps it’s the frozen waste land that seems to go on forever. Maybe it’s the fact that the Goron people are both starving and freezing to death only a short distance away. Maybe It is the loneliness you feel in those mountains.

Whatever the case may ultimately be I never really liked to listen to these songs when I was a kid. At the very least Great Bay has the Zoras Domain which was wonderful and Southern Swamp still sounded rather playful overall despite this being the oppressive track for that area.

Oppressive Track? That would imply each zone has a second one and indeed you are right. Each zone has a second track that plays after you beat the temple of that region. If I recall correctly it’s just the theme of Termina Fields. To tell you the truth I almost forgot that the songs changed after the fact. This is mostly because you spend so much time in those areas pre-dungeon that you don’t really have the chance to hear them after Majoras curse has been lifted from that area. BMAAA-8D5NM-HN7HX - [Steam]

 As an added note you have 4 songs that share a theme while under the influence of Majoras Mask, and they all share a theme once they’ve been freed from it. It’s small, but their attention to detail in this game was spot on.

About Agent9one of us since 12:45 PM on 04.13.2010

Who is Agent9? The not so secret agent of the destructoid community.

A Few things about me

- I'm almost finished with my degree in computer science and I plan on going into independent development and freelancing once I'm done.

- I can be very cynical, but I do try to be positive or curb my negativity. In spite of this I'm actually very jovial in person and I don't get mad often. I would dare say I'm quite happy, even when things seem bleak. I simply don't like industry Bullshit and I'm not one to stand for it, even if it's a game I like.

- I host a series annually called 31 Days where I post 1 horror related or themed video game song a day for the month of october. During this time I also provide keys for games (free of course) to any reader observant enough to find them.

- I've been a member of destructoid since 2010, and a lurker long before then. As such I've seen many people both come and go. Such is the natural order of things.

- I enjoy Art and draw in my spare time

- I also enjoy theatre and films. I especially like Horror movies (both good and bad ones).

- I go camping once or twice a year. I would go out more but my allergies tend to get in the way.

- I don't drink, which may be a surprise to some. I might make a joke or two about it but I stay away from alcohol for my own personal reasons, though you can feel free to drink a pint on my behalf any time you'd like.

This is a commission I had done for me by Inquisitive Ravenclaw. You should check out his site if you like the following piece

I also got a musical piece made for me by the incredible Alphadeus. A little history behind this:

My musical piece came as part of the Songs for Gamers album DLC pack 02. Alphadeus has been making songs for the members of the destructoid community for years already. This past year he opened submissions and I applied. For my meagre efforts I received this lovely piece:

You can find him on youtube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCFs2UhJYPVITYWCiqMk-z3w

He also has other venues listed on his profile here, take a look if you are so inclined:

The community is full of people with all kinds of talent and I'm very pleased to be a part of it along with all of you (yes, you too fair reader).
