Re: Sound of Play: 222

That was probably my favorite and the funniest of the Halloween specials. To be clear I have enjoyed the others in the past, I just found this one particularly funny.

Re: Sound of Play: 185

I got so much out of this episode! Literally! I really enjoyed Niklas Åkerblad as a guest. I kind of wanted to clip some of the things he said because some of them really grab closely at useful truths. He was open, insightful, and it turns out he makes a lot of music I really like. I keep a note on ...

Re: Sound of Play: 189

I enjoyed your description of the style of gameplay in Ninja Gaiden as well as the difficulty and caution that you approached it with. I don’t remember the game being THAT hard, certainly it was hard, but not crazy - at least not until the higher difficulties. I had almost entirely forgotten about t...

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

While most the music from the original Xbox game Deathrow (Pronounced Death throw) is sort of unremarkable, it was an incredible game and remains one of my all time favorites - if not my favorite video game of all time. I can’t really stomach sports games but Deathrow creates its own sport - called ...

Re: Sound of Play: 145

I value the procedurally generated story telling a lot. The stories I have from games that allow the player to make their own stories are so much more valuable to me than the stories any game writer was attempting to tell. I also appreciate a good story in a video game, and I talk about those with f...

Re: Sound of Play: 136

A theatre not-so-far from me shows primarily art films and features the Oscar Nominated Shorts, animated and live action, each year a couple weeks before the oscars. Given the much more artsy locales of the presenters in this episode I would bet they have a similar option nearby. It is a bit of a tr...

PZ7q5I6WGTo I believe I have made the link work in the above post. On that same note I am re-suggesting a song I suggested years ago but I posted the link wrong.

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

EDIT: Links now embedding properly it seems, I’m just a little out of practice! This music stood out to me right after I completed the Fyke Island quest. No spoilers, but you should not skip that side quest. There are a few moments in the game where the Horror of Velen is perfectly communicated to t...

Re: Let's rank Tarantino films, for no reason whatsoever...

I'm terrible at picking favorites though, or rating things, because I am addicted to variety wherever I can get it. So for me within the format used thus far, the ratings are: #1: All of Tarantino's movies other than Jackie Brown , including some that he didn't officially direct like From Dusk Til D...

Re: Whatcha Been Watching?

Finished up Peaky Blinders and around the same time knocked out Love, Death and Robots in a few evenings. That was over a month ago though and I feel like I haven't watched anything worthwhile since. I've been having a hard time getting away from Youtube lately. I've been checking out some Fact Fien...

"If you're gonna compare a Hanzo sword.. ...you compare it to every other sword ever made - wasn't made - by Hattori Hanzo." If you're gonna compare Tarantino films, you compare them to films by other filmmakers. The only comparison you can make amongst Tarantino films is... they're all better than ...

Re: Game suggestions for the podcast

I would like to re-suggest/refresh my suggestion of Phantom Dust for the Pc and Xbox One. Only because the game received a full reboot, is entirely free to play for PC and Xbox Gamers (even if you don’t have an Xbox Live Gold subscription), and was rebooted by a major publisher who didn’t make a lot...

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

I was just about to suggest that Grand Theft Auto track! I am not the least bit upset to be beaten to it, pretty pleased in fact :P . GTA3 was my first GTA, and that was one of those tracks I learned to switch to consistently. Speaking of GTA, there's a lot of good music that comes out of that serie...

Re: Other podcast recommendations

Gamers with Jobs It IS a podcast of the moment though. C&R and Sound of Play are both like growing archives, which means you can conveniently tune in any time and the old episodes are just as relevant today as they were when recorded.

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

Nova Limits - Ryan Henwood (feat. Adam Axeby) Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime is a lovely little co-op game I played through with my wife. This song immediately sets the tone for the game. I could explain more but I think the song is good enough I don’t have to. DbaYhJ5Fc_0 I’m often surprised a tra...

Re: Mortal Kombat / II / 3 / UMK3 / Trilogy

I loved these initial Mortal Kombat games. We weren't allowed to own one, but we visited plenty with those who had them. To me the violence and fatalities simply created visibility rather than attract, because these were my first fighting games (along with some Street Fighter, which never clicked fo...

Re: Whatcha Been Watching?

Watched Ex Machina and Moana this weekend. Both good.
Watched Baby Driver last weekend. Also good. A familiar cast in different roles, perhaps is the most I'd say.
Just finished the 6th season of Game of Thrones. Oof.

That interview was delightful, and the track from Unravel was really stunning. I also didn't expect such cool music in a sniper game.

Re: Whatcha Been Listening To?

I've heard really good things about Tales from the Borderlands but haven't gotten around to checking it out. As I recall everything Borderlands has had good soundtracks. I have Dam Top from Borderlands 2 downloaded and I was looking for the longest time for the tannis-rides-fish easter egg music . E...
