One of my favorite games to play on my NES growing up was DuckTales.  I think I may have loved the game just as much as the cartoon back then!  Well, while I don’t play it on my NES anymore, I do play the remastered version that can be found on Steam and just about every other gaming platform.  So as you can imagine, when I stumbled across this orchestral remix of the Moon level theme, you can imagine my excitement, especially those of you who know I have a huge love for orchestral music!

The original music was created by Yoshihiro Sakaguchi but this remixed, arranged and orchestrated remix was created by Pascal Michael Stiefel.  I’d say he did a rather incredible job with this orchestral version!  It has definitely given me the urge to fire up some DuckTales and play a couple of levels.

For those who haven’t played the game, whether you check out the original or the remastered version (my recommendation since it is basically the exact same game and has all of the original voice actors from the cartoon in it), I highly recommend giving it a try.  It is an absolute classic that was one of the best games ever made for the NES and I think the music like the song below is just as memorable as more well known games like Super Mario Bros or the Legend of Zelda.

I’ve played Starcraft and Starcraft II a few times but when it comes to RTS games, I tend to stick to Age of Empires and Command and Conquer.  However, I do really enjoy watching major Starcraft tournaments on Twitch to the point that I would rather enjoy having this cool Protoss Pylon USB charger sitting on my desk charging my various gadgets.  While the R2-D2 USB charger I posted a while back works great for your car, this is perfect for sitting on your desk.

If you are a Starcraft fan with some gadgets like a phone or smartwatch to  charge, this the is he USB charger you have been looking for!  It also makes for a great Christmas gift of that Starcraft lover in your life!
