青の6号: Time & Tide (DC) – “Soundtrack” and other movies

With C75 not far away, I thought it’d be a good idea to share with you all some BS6: Time & Tide related media I’ve been savoring for the past few months. Yes yes the idea didn’t come to mind until now, partly because I’ve been too busy with artwork commissions and stuff 😛 Better late than never anyhow.

Below is a list of links to several BS6: Time & Tide related video files on a youtube-like site called NICOVIDEO (http://www.nicovideo.jp). As the name and link would suggest, its a Japanese-based spinoff of Youtube thats becoming increasing popular and is rather user unfriendly to non-English speakers (there’s a German language option though!). You will need to register for an account before you can view the videos, but its nothing too hard.

The site is filled with a couple of  BS6 videos, but I’ll just be highlighting a few:

Time & Tide “Soundtrack”

Link: 【ニコニコ動画】青の6号 ~歳月不待人~ TIME AND TIDE サウンドトラック

This 60-minute video contains basically the entire soundtrack for the game, and is worth listening to if you’re curious 🙂 The soundtrack was composed by the THRILL, and notable tracks include the first one (awesome T&T theme) and the battle sequence theme. There are also several screenshots of ingame footage that I extracted and placed in my other posts.

[Update: 21/02/2009]: Kinglear has managed to rip most of the music files from the game and has kindly provided us with a link to download the MP3 files here: http://www.mediafire.com/?zyzq2eoilmi. Many thanks!

Battle with “Catherine” (Giant Squid)

This is a video of the entire multi-phase battle against an optional boss in the game. Catherine is essentially a giant-squid that has been tormenting you and your salvaging operations throughout the game, and towards the end of the game, you are given the option of killing her for a large reward. As the video will show, this overgrown calamari is a wuss and pretty easy to defeat. The death scene is…well…not impressive to say the least.

Secret Items

Littered throughout the various zones in the game are extremely powerful submarine upgrades that you may come across during your salvaging operations. This video basically shows you the locations of all the secret upgrades you can get.

The other 8 or so BS6 videos are all worth checking out, as they will not be found on Youtube. I wished someone uploaded the video of Blue 6 battling the Ghost Ship though. Hope you find these links useful!

  1. Thanks for this ticktank. I’ll have to register later to view them when I’ve got time. I have the game too and I’ve been able to emulate, but I’ve never found the time to play it…

  2. Oh, I just thought I would point out that you can download these videos using the fire fox webrowser by installing the “download helper” fire fox plugin.

  3. Okay, one last thing: I ripped and uploaded all 12 animation clips from the Dreamcast game Time and Tide to youtube. Here are the links:












    Note: These clips aren’t in the order they appear in the game.

  4. Many thanks for the hard work Kinglear. I’m sure fellow fans would appreciate this. Will be integrating these into the T&T movie list thread later 😛

  5. I found something interesting concerning the title of the game:

    Time and tide wait for no man

    Meaning: No one is so powerful that they can stop the march of time.
