Re: How much have you spent on Steam?

Too much in my opinion - £576, 98 games over 9 years. Works out at about £5.90 per game, and I have played (though not completed necessarily) 82 of those games, so at least I'm not like certain friends of mine I could name that have 500+ games and have played probably about 10%-20% of them. I dread ...

Re: SOMA

In terms of my video game experiences, my playing of SOMA is rather unique in that it is my first and currently only strict horror-game I have played and completed. As a genre, whether in film or video games, I’m not into horror at all. With films it’s generally because I don’t find them all that sc...

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

Time for some more entries methinks. Nothing like being surprised by one of your submissions coming into your earbuds on Sound of Play! My first pick is from the somewhat popular game - The Elder Scrolls V: The One with the Dragons in it. Other than the cracking main theme of course, my favourite tr...

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

It's been quite a while since I posted any more submissions so I thought I'd finally remedy that. My first pick of two is 'The Sun Rises' from the Okami soundtrack, easily one of my all time favourite video game soundtracks for its unique fusion of traditional Japanese music with bombastic orchestra...

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

3 months since my last submissions; I'd meant to post more frequently! My first of two picks this time is 'One Final Effort' from the Halo 3 Soundtrack by Martin O'Donnell and Michael Salvatori. The music from the Marty O'Donnell scored Halo games remains amongst my favourite video game music of all...

Re: Ageing changing the way you play

A great topic for discussion! I've certainly noticed significant changes in my game playing habits. The biggest change, though it gradually unfolded over several years, was a clear moving away from multiplayer games or modes. Whilst I've always loved the single-player experience, I by far used to sp...

Re: Sound of Play: 50

Thanks for the great show, it was a really enjoyable episode. I've yet to play a Zelda game (something I intend to remedy very soon) but the main theme has always resonated with me as a piece of music itself and this was the first time I really got to hear a good selection of the rest of the music f...

Re: Your Favorite Boss Fights!

Great topic! I've chosen a few too. http://femmegamer.files.wordpress.com/2011/09/phalanx.jpg My go to favourite 'boss' in any game so far has to be Phalanx, the 13th Colossus for its majestic and awe-inspiring size and shape, it's beautifully rendered desert home and the fact you have to leap from ...

Halo Legendary Solo Discussion

Having recently gotten round to completing Halo 5 on Legendary Solo (LS), a long-time tradition amongst many Halo players, I thought it timely (for me at least) to open up a discussion for any Halo vets out there to just talk about the LS experience throughout all the series. Do you have any particu...

Re: Games completed 2016

04/07 - Dark Souls 3 (PC) I really, really like this game, but it feels like a best of album. Whereas Dark Souls and Bloodborne feel like albums. Hopefully that metaphor makes sense. I totally know what you mean; Dark Souls 3 is like the most polished and refined Souls/Borne game yet but its also t...

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

Thank you for playing my tracks in issues 46 and 47, I was very pleased to hear them on the airwaves! I thought it was about time to provide some more. For my first pick I'm going with a relatively new game that I only played recently - Child of Light. The track in question is Metal Gleamed in the T...

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

Heyo everybody, this is my first time posting on the forum even though I've been listening to Cane and Rinse and Sound of Play for many good years now. Not sure how much I'll be frequenting it as life can be pretty busy but I'd at the very least love to contribute to the music roster of Sound of Pla...
