Re: Sound of Play: 224

The dark and industrial tone is something that caught my attention as well. Interesting to catch certain "moods" of particular years.

Telling Lies Spoiler Chat

I rolled credits on Telling Lies over the weekend, and, honestly, I wanted to like it more than I ended up liking it. I wanted to open this thread to get some discussion out there to see if there was anything that I missed that can really make the title land for me. I really liked the characters, an...

Yeah, damn, just popping in to say that Honeybee is one of my favorite tracks we've ever played on Sound of Play. What a song.

Sorry. I fixed the Play;Write website link -- https://playwritecast.com/the-history-o ... game-music

Nice list there. I'll have to check out that additional Sanxion music.

Re: Sound of Play: 207

I'm glad you enjoyed the interview! Darren and I were both really nervous going into it, but Grant turned out to be one of the most personable people I've ever met. Just instantly cuts through the tension and gets everyone laughing.

Re: Your Top 50 Games of All Time Lists

That's really interesting, and I totally get your point about context. It was the first I played and I found it largely impenetrable but fascinating for about ten hours before picking up DS2. That's the one which really clicked and which I fell in love with, then Dark Souls 1 followed and my entire...

Re: Your Top 50 Games of All Time Lists

Yeah, to be completely honest, I don't actually care for Demon's Souls all that much. It was the last of the series that I came to, and there are some frustrating elements that feel like a step backwards to someone more accustomed to the latter Souls games formula. That's deeeefinitely not to say it...

Re: Sound of Play: 204

The piece playing over your intro was from Yoshi's Woolly World, and I'm pretty sure there was another track from it in the mix. Also Ori and the Blind Forest (For real this time), the Mario track was most likely Mario Maker, and was that Dr. Langeskov, The Tiger, and The Terribly Cursed Emerald: A...

Re: Sound of Play: 204

That list is looking good! Just to make a few corrections -- not the correct year for Super Hexagon. There were, indeed, two Animal Crossing games in 2015. Phoenix Wright appeared in a great game in 2015, but it's not Marvel or Smash. No Simon the Sorcerer in this mix, but there is another similar r...

Re: Sound of Play: 198

After reviewing the soundtrack, I didn't really find any of the tracks in the Twisted Metal 2 soundtrack to be that memorable, so it probably doesn't immensely stick out.

Re: Sound of Play: 198

Solid list a couple of "right series, wrong entry" games in there, but overall -- you're hitting the nail on the head.

Sorry about the link. I'll fix it.

Re: Avengers: Endgame (Spoiler Thread)

The "Loki got away" moment was erased from the main timeline, right?

Also, I thought it was a funny nod back to the earlier films when Cap swore, but I thought it would have been better if he just swore once instead of twice. It felt weird that it was a two-time thing.

Re: Avengers: Endgame (Spoiler Thread)

I just saw it, and I admit that things haven't had time to really settle in just yet, but there are a few points of confusion that I had during the movie: The limiting factor in the "we only have one chance" time heist was that Pym particles are an extremely finite resource. But couldn't they just p...
