Re: The videogame music thread (also Sound of Play submissions)

Lunatic Pandora - from FFVIII by Uematsu UGN_3Am98zc Playing through this game recently for the CnR podcast I was immediately entranced by the atmospheric and eerie music accompanying my first foray into the futuristic dungeon, Lunatic Pandora. It is like Uematsu channeled his inner 'Hip' Tanaka (Me...

You should have gone with Barret, a much more pleasant date if Tifa didn't do it for you. :P

Re: Our next Final Fantasy podcast recording (15.12.18) - 350: Final Fantasy VII

The first time I played Final Fantasy VII was at a family members house shortly after its release. I was just coming off the epic trio of SNES JRPG's: Secret of Mana, Final Fantasy VI and Chrono Trigger (shout out to Illusion of Gaia) and not really that aware of the Sony Playstation yet when my sli...

Re: Our next podcast recording (8.12.18) - 349: Resident Evil 7: Biohazard (Biohazard 7: Resident Evil)

Unfortunately I have not been able to finish RE7 in time for the podcast due to how utterly terrifying it is, to me. Jump scares always get me, so one can imagine how my play through has been going up to this point (currently in the barn save room). I would be remiss however if I didn't mention the ...

Re: Books completed (2018)

I'm going to try to read one book for every game I play for a while, just to keep a certain balance between the two media (for every stressful boss battle I want an hour or two in the serene company of words). Getting a head start since I've been playing The Witcher 3 since the beginning of the yea...

Re: Books completed (2018)

I need to get on the Expanse books, it sounds like something I would be really into but I just haven't taken the time to either read or watch the series. As for myself and my 2018 reading adventures, here is what I have completed: Sapiens by Yuval Noah Harari Leonardo da Vinci by Walter Isaacson Ale...

Re: Our next podcast recording (27.10.18) - 343: Horizon Zero Dawn

I just wanted to quickly comment on how utterly breathtaking the visuals are in Horizon: Zero Dawn. I am currently playing this with a launch PS4 on a 1080p display; even lacking 4k, this is the first video game in years that has me just stopping, slack-jawed, to stare at the scenery. The lighting i...

Re: 335: Ghosts ‘n Goblins (Makaimura)

Sometime around 1988 or 1989, when I was 7-8 years old, I first started becoming aware of video games and soon started spending most of my free time with them. In order to play I had to go to my best friends house who had an NES with a collection of games that contained many of what I now consider t...

Re: The videogame music thread (also Sound of Play submissions)

This track, Grassland Grooves from Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, epitomizes the sheer, simple joy and pleasure of playing DKC games to me.
