Amazing choice. To me it felt like a Spanish hotel lobby’s evening mode music. If you close your eyes you can almost smell the mojitos.
Thanks. Good shout with the type of music, I just couldn't imagine another videogame that would be a more natural fit for me.

Hitman in a Spanish hotel?

Re: April 2020 podcast

I'm a bit behind but I've just listened to the podcast and I thought you might want to hear from a primary teacher’s point of view regarding the history chat. Of course, schools are very different today. I remember one teacher telling me when I started teaching that she had taught a lesson about vik...

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

I've been playing through Borderlands 3, a game that I was not expecting many surprises from but one that has managed to throw a few unexpected moments my way. It's fair to say when this particular boss fight began, I was not prepared to hear this piece of music. To me it felt very much like I shoul...

Re: Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice – Cane and Rinse 338

Would have probably given this a miss if it hadn't appeared on the list this year. I'm glad I didn't. Both the game and then the podcast, have led me down an internet rabbit hole to find out more about the game, the historical setting and of course the themes. A superb inclusion to the list and a gr...

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

Fist of the North Star Lost Paradise (or Hokuto Ga Gotuku if you want to find the soundtrack anywhere) is an absurd game that has kept me entertained for hours now. It has some great music but the developers appear to make you want to work for it. There are excellent driving tracks but If you want t...

Re: Our next Resident Evil podcast recording (8.9.18) - 336: Resident Evil 4 (Biohazard 4)

My most played Gamecube game. In a time when I had far more disposable income and time, this was the game I dedicated more time to than any other. Having played and enjoyed the previous games, I welcomed the changes made for 4. The controls felt to me like a progression from the last game and weren’...

Re: Game suggestions for the podcast

As someone who has played a great deal of JRPGs and Resident Evil, this looks like a great year ahead. For me at least. I hope there's not too much grinding for the team. Can I ask what's going on with the Resident Evil 4? I might have missed something. Will it be a revisiting episode, a different t...

Re: 301: Resident Evil (1996) *recording 07.01.2018

There are many significant differences between the two games than a visual overhaul The awesome FMV intro for one. I only have one other thing to say: This game may have affected me more than I care to admit. I can't play the piano but I taught myself the opening of Moonlight Sonata. Just in case.

Re: 302: Bleed and Bleed 2

The inclusion on a Cane and Rinse list will usually make me check out a game I might have previously overlooked. The post above however, convinced me to buy it and move it to the top of my Steam list. After a few hours and multiple deaths, I've seen the ending on Normal. Much of what Simonsloth says...

Re: Our next podcast recording (26.8.17): Destiny

A bit of context: I bought a PS4 second hand with a copy of the original disc earlier this year. Advice from the forum as well as a few friends who'd played Destiny from the start convinced me to go all in and purchase all the DLC at a very reasonable price in May. I'm not going to repeat what I’ve ...

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

The theme for the Italian stage is the game's most bombastic theme by far and it does it's job lending what would be a regular fight into a epic duel between titans. Although, I don't have the love for Tekken that you seem to (I like it well enough, played 1-4), I added this to a playlist immediate...

So the other day, in between the downpours, we had a lovely bit of sunshine and I was walking around, whistling this tune but couldn't remember what it was from. When I finally remembered what it was from, my already good mood was elevated into pure bliss. A celebratory piece that felt like it was u...

Re: Destiny / The Taken King

Thanks for the advice, both the positive and cautionary words have been taken on board. Going for it; the collection is all the DLC included and was £21 on PS+. Sounds like there's enough fun to be had, even in solo play. I don't think I'll go too far down the rabbit hole. We'll see.

It evokes so many memories for me from that time. The wonderful rotoscope animation, the shameless Running Man and Total Recal...

Re: Sound of Play: 90

Great episode! Some really fond memories for me, particularly Thunderforce III. I remember 'converting' my Mega Drive with a compass so I could play my first Japanese import.
Really enjoying these longer specials. Appreciate the extra effort.

Re: Life Is Strange

There was no 'selfie' in the 90s though! ;) Ah, very true! I'd somehow forgotten it's a relatively new term. However, as we've all had to hear multiple times, they've been around since the 1800s and this "generation was not the first to use images for selfie-expression". :twisted: I really did love...
