I don't know about you guys, but to me the gold standard of montage music is Push it to the limit (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vd90-m7eO6Y). Also, I like the shout-out to Mike Tyson's Punch Out!!! as that was my favourite NES game when I was young. I only ever got as far as Mr. Sandman, and for a while I thought that wasn't too bad. That is until I saw video of a guy getting to Mike Tyson-blindfolded (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CvzIb53Lcno). I also remember playing Ninja Gaiden as a kid and as far as I can recall, I didn't get very far.
It seems you linked to the wrong video with that first link, but I assume you meant to link to the Push it to the Limit montage in Scarface
. Awesome song, and an awesome movie. The singer of that song is also the vocalist for Device, one of the most obscure and underrated synth pop '80s bands. They only put out a single album in '86, which was oddly called 22B3
. It's totally rad, if you're into dark '80s synth pop.
You might be the first person to call out the Punch-Out!! reference, which is surprising, because I thought it was one of the most obvious references on the page. Someone called out the Gymkata
reference almost instantly, which I didn't think anyone would notice. I think
I was able to get up to Mike Tyson in Punch-Out!!, but my memory could be fucking with me and I might've only gotten to him by putting in the code to skip directly to him. Don't think I ever managed to beat him. Impressive video—it's always crazy to watch people plow through these games that seemed nearly impossible when I was a kid. The farthest I got in Ninja Gaiden was Bloody Malth, the red-masked badass lighting-hurling fucker that guards the end of one of the game's final levels.
Oh, and by the way, I was wondering how I could post links on here without showing the URL.
This is one of those things that can look complicated when an explanation is typed out, but it's actually super easy once you get the hang of it. I'll try to explain.
First, type out the text you want to turn into a link. Then highlight just that text and click the "Insert Hyperlink" button (the Earth-looking icon that's below the Italics button). That'll envelope the text with the code that turns it into a clickable link, but now we need to add an actual link to it. To add the URL, you need to fuck with that code, but just a little. Place your cursor just after the "L" in the first
bracket-enclosed URL "[url]" (so not the one that's preceded by a backslash), and add an equals sign "=". Next, copy the URL you want the text to link to and then paste that URL directly after the equals sign you added. That's it, the text will become a link directing to the URL you specified.
So in short, you highlight the text you want to become a link, you click the globe button, and then you toss an equals sign and past the URL just before the end bracket ( this guy: ] ) of the start of the url code, the one that looks like this: [url] . You don't fuck with the second bracket-enclosed url, the one with the backslash. Hope that makes sense.
