Re: Life Is Strange

I've been trying to think of something to say about Life is Strange for the past ten minutes now, but I don't know if I have the language. The question I was left with by the end was: "Was I trying to save everyone because I cared about them, or did I just want everybody to like me?" And maybe that'...

Re: Yooka-Laylee

Just finished the game and I... have some thoughts. (no spoilers, don't worry) Yooka-Laylee exists in this weird space for me where criticism has no meaning. I can't mentally divorce myself from my emotional attachment to its source material, and, just to be clear, that's definitely okay. It's sorta...

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

r1CCE-2b85k There's something beautiful about distilling life itself into an interactive video game. Which is why I think The Sims is one of the most important video games ever made, often neglected in conversations surrounding the medium. It reflects on the mundanity of life, and how they shape ou...

Re: Our next Zelda podcast recording (18.3.17) - The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds

(First it's worth mentioning I was unable to replay the game for the podcast, so these thoughts come from vague recollections of when I finished it in early 2014. However, I do think there is much value to be seen in those aspects of a game you can remember far after you've completed it, so I decide...

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

Ik4SeVpOh0w Like the game, the Planet Coaster soundtrack is sheer bliss from start to finish. Fans of the RollerCoaster Tycoon series will be familiar with Planet Coaster's core gameplay loop: design your park, build coasters, have fun. But the amount of freedom Planet Coaster gives in making your ...

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

P4hFH0pcXSU Ever since I've started following Sound of Play, I've been a lot more attentive to a game's soundtrack than ever before. It seems like I always used to take a video game's music for granted, without fully appreciating just how integral it was to the game's identity as a piece of art. Th...

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

ZX14TMvBGFw So I was unsure if a credits track affiliated with an independent band qualifies for Sound of Play, but this piece so beautifully exudes the mystique of LA Noire that I would be remiss to at least give it a try. The original song is by The Real Tuesday Weld, a British group whose forte ...
