The Vents - Ecco CD - Spencer Nilsen
I nicknamed this song “The Singers’ Lamentations” after about the second time I heard it.
For those just tuning in, this is the song that plays in the Sega CD version of Ecco the Dolphin during “The Vents”, which is an early level where Ecco rescues three young dolphins trapped by the chaos the Storm caused.
"The Storm that has taken your pod shook the entire ocean"…
Oh my God!.. These are my old Ecco pics! O.O

* Ecco the Dolphin: Defender of the Future
* Randomized Pokemon Black (if time permits)
Changed my mind. We’ll use Defender as the inaugural Dreamcast stream. Come see my Opinions on this game! (I like it, but I am also disappoint at it)
Possibly of interest to Ecco fans?
Day #20 of Drawing August. There’s still 5 minutes til midnight, it’s totally on time, yo! Don’t judge me for being up at five-to-twelve listening to The Rasmus and painting brightly-coloured dolphins.
Anyway, Ecco is 21 years old now. Unless you take into account all the time travelling then… it’s probably like a divide by zero situation (well, in the second game, it was)
My first encounter with Ecco was actually one of the comics, the issue that took place in a mostly black void. The squid in it was horrifying when I was 4 years old…
Tried to reblog this when Tumblr had a meltdown. Let’s try that again because this needs reblogging!
Sparky vs. Tides of Time, Part 3: Orcas and Stone (by Sparky Lurkdragon)
Two really obnoxious levels where I get lost a lot. HOORAY
(I’ve spared y’all some of the backtracking in Lost Orcas and most of the confused wandering in Maze of Stone.)
Some peculiar conversational tangents, as well. Topics include my insomnia, my streaming policies, and Rule 34.
* Lost Orcas
* Maze of Stone (hard only)
Sparky vs. Tides of Time, Part 2: Earth’s Natural Future (by Sparky Lurkdragon)
The Good Future levels just speed on by!
Because of my personal-record-breaking run here, I forgot to mention… if you fall out of Tube of Medusa, the game kicks you back to Skyway and you have to pick your way through Sky Tides again. It’s kind of a micro version of the whole “die in The Last Fight, go through Welcome to the Machine again” thing in Ecco 1.
That said, you at least have your password, so you can reset, enter the password, and go back to Tubes of Medusa. In fact, if you reset your Genesis as you’re falling out - before the level name for Skyway comes up - the game saves your password and you can go right back to running from the Medusa, so there’s that.
Also, the comment about the great eruptions in Skylands inspired a fanfic.
* Sky Tides
* Tube of Medusa
* Aqua Tubeway (hard only)
* Fin to Feather
* Eagle’s Bay
* Asterite’s Cave

More detailed graphics, better sonar map, better controls… and an even weirder and more disturbing story. This is Ecco: The Tides of Time.
