Mii Channel Theme Song Remix Goes Viral | Game Rant
The Nintendo Wii is one of the more memorable consoles of the past few decades. As Nintendo constantly creates technology wrapped around the idea of fun, the Wii was designed to bring joy to a wide range of audiences with games like Wii Sports, The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, Mario Kart Wii, and even the Mii Channel.
The Mii Channel, in particular, is something that many spent countless hours on, creating Mii characters for all of their friends, family members, celebrities, etc. The music on the channel was one aspect to this day gets stuck into the head of those who enjoyed time in it way back in 2006, and one Twitter user just released an amazing remix of the tune.
Alex Moukala is a music producer and composer, and also a pretty big video game fan. He recently put together a funky remix of the Mii Channel theme, and it has taken off. Moukala has aspirations to one day score music for Final Fantasy; he is showing he has the chops to do so.
Along with sending out the video itself, Mouakala thought his work would sound even better with other instruments and asked other musicians to add their work. Although Muakala’s solo jam is incredible, the results from other musicians joining in have been remarkable as well. One string of videos, specifically, has multiple people continually adding more music and the culmination of this experiment was a beautiful quintet. In fact, with the new addition of a stringed instrument, the tunes almost sound like it could have been music from a Super Mario game, perhaps something like a Mario Kart, for example.
Video game composers have even gotten in on the action, like Sonic Mania composer Tee Lopes. Just hearing everyone’s different takes on the classic Mii Channel theme is extremely entertaining; especially those who are seasoned within the industry.
Celeste is considered one of the better indie games of the past decade, and the composer of that game, Lena Raine, also joined in on the fun as well. Alex Moukala captured something special here, and it goes much beyond his funky tunes. While his Mii Channel remix is extremely catchy, the idea of sharing that music online and allowing others to play off of it is a wonderful community-building exercise. It is possible to spend hours on the feed listening to what others have come up with thanks to the creativity that he started.

Monster Hunter World: Iceborne – How to Get Great Spiritvein Gems
Players who reached the endgame of Monster Hunter World‘s base game found themselves trying to farm certain streamstones to augment their endgame gear. Then Iceborne came around and rendered late game weapons from the base game relatively worthless. Players would again be able to augment their gear once they got to the end of Iceborne, but now they needed Spiritvein gems, and Great Spiritvein Gems at that for the highest level gear. Great Spiritvein Gems are generally fairly difficult to get, but thankfully, some event quests introduced late in Monster Hunter World:Iceborne‘s lifespan have made it easier to acquire them.
The Guiding Lands
The primary way to get Great Spiritvein Gems, and the only way before certain event quests dropped, is through the Guiding Lands. The Guiding Lands is an unlockable 6th area of the game that is unlocked upon defeating the final boss of Iceborne‘s main campaign. It is split into 4, later 6, separate regions that can each “level up,” which increases the strength and or/type of the monsters found in the region.
At first each region can only be leveled up to level 4 until the player reaches MR 49, then they can complete the quest Sleep Now in the Fire, which will allow regions to be upgraded to level 5. Then at MR 69, the quest Big Burly Bash can be taken to raise the regional level cap to 6. Then finally at MR 99, the quest To the Very Ends with You is available, which will raise the level cap to 7. Fighting monsters in the Guiding Lands also is one of the quicker ways to raise MR rating.
Once a region can be raised to level 7, Great Spiritvein Gems can be obtained. Hunting monsters that only reside in a specific region is the best way to raise that region’s level. Make sure to collect tracks and basically do anything else that rewards research points for accomplishing, such as trapping the monster or breaking its parts. Once the region is at level 7, players will want to track down or lure out certain monsters, usually Elder Dragons, to the level 7 region. The only non-Elder Dragon monsters that drop Great Spiritvein Gems in level 7 regions are Rajang, Seething Bazelgeuse, Savage Deviljho, Stygian Zinogre, Gold Rathian, and Silver Rathalos. Gold Rathian and Silver Rathalos are only unlocked in the Guiding Lands by leveling up the Wildspire region and the Coral region respectively to level 6.
A region being at level 7 will cause most of its residents to become tempered. Any tempered versions of the above monsters or Elder Dragons can drop Great Spiritvein Gems. They will drop “shinies” throughout the hunt that can be picked up and each has a 3% chance of being a Great Spiritvein Gem. The drop rate is the same for carving or capturing the monster.
While the 3% drop rate could be fairly frustrating for the acquisition of Great Spiritvein Gems, Capcom thankfully introduced an alternative. Three event quests will now also reward the player with Great Spirtvein Gems.
These quests are:
The quests still require an MR of 100 or more though. The first two quests have a 100% chance of rewarding a Great Spiritvein Gem upon completion, while the third has an 8% chance of doing so. Ode to Destruction will have players hunt a Tempered Ruiner Nergigante, Mew Are Number One! has a Tempered Furious Rajang to hunt, and Tears from Nirvana has a Tempered Blackveil Vaal Hazak to hunt. Ode to Destruction also has an 8% chance of rewarding a second gem, while Mew Are Number One! only has a 1% chance of awarding a second one. However, Mew Are Number One! also can reward Astral Melding Tickets which can be melded back in a hub for rare decorations, so doing this quest can potentially kill two birds with one stone.
Monster Hunter World: Iceborne is available now on PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
