Re: The Sound of Play submission thread

qOUmYK3BH4Q This comes from OverClocked Remix. It’s Kefka’s theme as if composed by Danny Elfman for a Tim Burton movie. The remix is included on the remix album, Final Fantasy VI: Balance and Ruin, and is arranged by Steffan Andrews. I had never heard of him before, so I performed a quick Google s...

Re: 476 - The Last of Us Part II

I’m probably in the minority here, but I absolutely despised the first game in the series. Save for the ending, I did not enjoy a single moment of The Last of Us, and had it not been for my girlfriend that wanted to see the story, I would have turned it off after a few hours. I know a lot of people ...

Re: Our next podcast recording (16.1.21): 452 - Monster Hunter: World

This game has an impressive amount of content. I mean the campaign is practically a tutorial. There are so many systems in this game. For me, the monster hunts were at their best when all these systems come together, and everything goes wrong. Like setting up a pitfall trap only have the wrong monst...

Re: 450: Wandersong

I played Wandersong on a whim at the beginning of the year and I am so glad I did because, of all the games I played this year, this one is my favorite. The art style is fun, if a bit simple, and the overall gameplay isn’t very complex. But the music is great, and it has the most wonderful group of ...

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

For whatever reason, I had the hardest time finding this track. Patric Catani’s contributions to the game are readily available on streaming services, but the other artists that contributed material to the game are harder to find. The only thing that I know about the track I have selected is it’s ca...

Re: 441: P.T.

P.T. was one of the first games that I downloaded when I finally purchased my PS4. While I had heard about the demo and knew that it was some sort of advertisement for a Kojima directed Silent Hill game, I was fortunate enough to avoid seeing any gameplay footage so I got to play the game blind. And...

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

I found out about Wandersong earlier this year when I saw that it was available on Xbox GamePass, and I can’t understand why it took me so long to hear about it. It’s a wonderful gem of a game that I had a blast playing through. The piece I have selected, called “Sailing With the Coffee Pirates”, is...

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

Of all the music in Final Fantasy 7, this is the one that really hits me in the nostalgia feels. It’s heard several times throughout the game. It sets up the heavy atmosphere of some of the early Midgar areas and is used in some of the more subtle and reflective scenes later on. Cloud’s flashback of...

Re: 411: Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice

The SoulsBorne games have been my favorite games of the past couple of generations of consoles. I have played and seen everything that each game has had to offer, so I consider myself a bit of a SoulsBorne veteran. Unfortunately, there was a problem. I was a fraud. FromSoftware knew this and they ca...

Re: Our next podcast recording (14.7.19) - 378: INSIDE

Limbo is one of my favorite games so my expectations for Inside were through the roof. I completed Inside in a single sitting the day I bought it, and I thought it was fantastic. It retains the intense atmosphere that was present in Limbo, but presents it in a different way. Everything in Inside has...

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

So much good stuff in Chrono Cross! If you’re interested in a little curio, have a listen to the music from the Japan only midquel Radical Dreamers. It’s a visual novel that would later form the basis of the first act of Chrono Cross. heres a playlist Thanks for the playlist link! I think I may lik...

Re: 374: Furi

The only real criticism I can think of is that the game doesn’t do a very good job of explaining all the details of the combats. I recently watched a Let’s Play of the tutorial fight, and I didn’t notice any prompts stating that you could deflect projectiles back at enemies, charge your sword for e...

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

Chrono Cross has my all time favorite soundtrack. I think all of us have that one game that we put on and let sit idle so we can listen to the music. This one is mine. All of the music in this game is amazing. If I could request the entire soundtrack, I would. Since I can’t, I had the impossibly har...

Re: 374: Furi

Prior to receiving Furi for free through Playstation Plus, I had never heard of it. It turned into my surprise favorite game of 2016. I gave it a shot after seeing the artwork’s resemblance to Afro Samurai. I’m glad I did. Furi’s frenetic combat was just the kick in the pants I needed to get me out ...

I wasn’t able to pick up Final Fantasy X at launch, as I didn’t have a Playstation 2 when it released, but when I finally got one, it was the second game I bought.. Metal Gear Solid 2 was the first. Once I got my hands on a copy, I blew through it in no time. I remember being impressed with how gorg...

I’m not really sure I can contribute much else to this discussion as everyone else has pretty much covered my feelings about the game, but I’ll give it a shot. DOOM brings all that was good about old school shooters and smashes it into a modern day shooter. It’s gorgeous to watch, the levels are mas...

Final Fantasy 9 is a pretty special game to me. Being a fan of the previous games, I had every intention of diving into this one as soon as possible. On a three day weekend, shortly after it released, I went over to a friend's house for the weekend and saw that he had just started Final Fantasy 9. I...

Since Can and Rinse just covered the latest Zelda release, I figured I would drop this little gem here. When I first came across this song, it was through an early file sharing application.

Re: 360: The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

I have been a fan of the Zelda series for as long as I can remember. While I have enjoyed playing through the games as they have evolved over the years, the original that was released on the NES remains my personal favorite. I think it’s because, somewhere along the way, the Zelda games became less ...
