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

oIIuwtDL_ok "Queen’s Garden" , by Christopher Larkin ( Hollow Knight ) Yep, another huge fan of Hollow Knight here. I recently started this game, thanks in no small part to peer pressure and, honestly, I’m loving it, partly because of its impeccable and engaging gameplay but especially for its art ...

tnLQnX7BPeU "Field of Hopes And Dreams" , by Toby Fox ( Deltarune Chapter 1 ) Toby Fox is unexpectedly (but welcomingly) back! And fortunately his new tunes are as catchy and memorable as before, among them this one. I’m glad that not only these new themes have the characteristic Undertale sound bu...

dluyvD6JGRA "Prague. Time Machine Mix" , by Sascha Dikiciyan ( Deus Ex: Mankind Divided ) Another brilliant soundtrack for the Deus Ex series, this time for Mankind Divided. I like how melancholic and even kind of oppressive this particular piece feels. It adds so much to the atmosphere of this fic...

Re: Cyberpunk 2077

Saw the gameplay video as soon as IGN streamed it. Honestly the game they showed in that video is more than I expected, in a very good way :) I don't expect it to overtake the place The Witcher 3 has in my heart but it seems like the type of game that would probably enter my top 10 favorite videogam...

"Spoiler", by DJ Hyper (Cyberpunk 2077)

Re: Cyberpunk 2077

I was so hyped for this game despite not knowing what the hell it would turn out to be: a GTA clone? An immersive sim a la Deus Ex? A shooter with some RPG sprinkled on top? But now that I’ve seen the trailer and read some bits about the behind-closed-doors demo they showed to the gaming press at E3...

Re: 310: BioShock Infinite

What a great discussion! Personally, I believe that the game portraited both the Founders and the Vox Populi as equivalent evils so they —the developers and publishers— could reach to a bigger audience. For instance, I think that if they would have tried to show the Vox Populi as a mostly sympatheti...

XHPjpflNssY " The Bottom ", by Tomáš Dvořák aka Floex ( Machinarium ) Man, I love this soundtrack so much :) If there’s one thing that makes the people at Amanita Design stand out among the indie crowd is their very distinguishing aesthetics. In the case of Machinarium , which I’d consider their ma...

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

Recently I’ve been playing NieR: Automata and so far I’ve liked it very much. It’s got an incredible storyline —some anime tropes notwithstanding— and interesting characters (I love the design and acting of the Machine Lifeforms) but if there’s something that really stands out for me among everythin...

Re: Our next-but-one podcast recording (21.10.17): The Witcher III: Wild Hunt

I came here just to say that, regardless of anyone's positions about any of the game's subjects, I love reading these type of discussions!

Keep them coming, as long as they're respectful, as objective as possible and insightful, of course.

Re: Favourite Enemies/Monsters in Games (not Bosses)

My picks would be: 1) Big Sisters ( BioShock 2 ) Incredibly agile and psychically powerful mutant girls, plus they have a very cool suit design, like slender Big Daddies. 2) Striders ( Half-Life 2 and episodes) Towering three-legged alien cyborg tanks (that’s a mouthful :lol: ). Hugely intimidating ...

Bully ’s soundtrack kicks ass! I’ll take this chance to post a track from this game: ytwpmy4jwkA “Vendetta Jocks” , by Shawn Lee I love how eclectic this soundtrack is, that is, the way it blends many musical genres to represent how diverse and crazy are the cliques and situations the protagonist J...

Re: The Witcher III: Hearts of Stone / The Witcher III: Blood and Wine

As you can tell from my previous comments about The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt , I’m a huge fan of this series and I particularly love the third entry, it being a culmination of everything that was great about The Witcher 1 —like its folkloric atmosphere— and The Witcher 2 —like its gameplay systems— with...

Re: Our next-but-one podcast recording (14.5.17): Perfect Dark

My tastes have changed a little since then but I still have fondness for this campy but cool first person shooter made by Rare, the same developers that gave me other amazing experiences like Banjo & Kazooie and the hilarious Conker’s Bad Fur Day . Even though I didn’t own a N64 back then (and never...

Re: The Witcher III: Wild Hunt

Have you ever felt when watching a good TV show over several years that the story and the characters became a part of your life? Not in a big way, after all there are other shows out there, but still you feel almost like you’ve grown with that show? You felt a lot of nostalgia when it ended, enough ...

Re: The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings

The first Witcher game became for me a promising foundation for a great franchise, so much in fact that I had to drop any other pending games in my backlog and try The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings right after the first game (I rarely do something like this) in order to witness as soon as possible h...
