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

I first became acquainted with the world of SteamWorld playing SteamWorld Dig on the 3DS. After that, I was sold on purchasing anything put out by Swedish video game developer Image & Form. I played Dig 2 at launch, but didn't get around to SteamWorld Heist until recently. The turn-based steampunk c...

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

My favorite moments in any video game come at the eye of the storm, where all the chaos and drama and tension is suspended for a brief time. Whether its the save room in Resident Evil games, or that moment in "The Last of Us" right before everything goes to hell, these special moments always have mu...

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

I'm greatly anticipating the next entry in the "No More Heroes" series on the Nintendo Switch, and was reminded of this bizarre track from the first game. From what I recall, "The virgin child makes her wish without feeling anything" was sung by Dr. Peace in a stadium, and starkly contrasts with the...

Re: Our next podcast recording (25.2.18) - 308: Tenchu: Stealth Assassins

While I have fond memories of the original Tenchu playing through it as a group in a college dorm, I have thought little of the series over the past two decades. Although they are very different games, it is inexorably linked in my mind to Metal Gear Solid, which I also picked up at the same time. P...

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

I have been playing my way through "Night in the Woods" on Switch lately. The writing and atmosphere are both wonderful, and fit well with the struggles of college dropout Mae and her return to Possum Springs, her declining post-industrial hometown. Each day, as I wake up in the late afternoon, I ri...
