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

Hello Sound of Play, I have been enjoying the new TurboGraphx-16 mini these last few weeks and I think it might be my favorite mini console to date. Having not played so many of the games it has been incredible to discover all these great titles in one package. I have been spending most of my time o...

Re: 423: Batman: Arkham Knight

Ok, lets get the elephant out the room first shall we? The Batmobile, my opinion on this is that it’s nether bad or great but could see why from a gameplay and a character perspective it is perhaps a little at odds with itself. Driving around Gotham and chasing down goons was fun, as was calling it ...

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

Hello Sound of Play, I have been spending some of my lovely lockdown time jumping into the fantastic Octopath Traveler. It is typically not a genre of game I play very often but I loved the look of it so much I decided to dive in, and am so glad I did as I am absolutely loving it. One of the many as...

Re: 414: Axiom Verge

When Axiom Verge came out in 2015 I was itching to play it but didn’t have a Playstation at the time, so when it came to Xbox in 2016 I purchased it day one. At that point the Metroidvania boom had not fully kicked in so I could not wait for this one. First of all, how did one person manage to make ...

Re: Sound of Play: 240 - The Assassin's Creed special

Hello folks, Will add my AC suggestions in a bit, but couldn't help but notice that the Assassins Creed Symphony are touring this year and looks like it will be a great show. Posting this here as you guys are most likely to be interested in seeing such a show. You can find out more information at th...

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

Hello, I am currently stabbing, beating and shooting my way through Hotline Miami 2 for the podcast. I would like to request a track called ‘Around’ by Modulogeek, the track plays during some of the story sequences in-between levels and is a somewhat somber and melancholy piece. With the majority of...

Re: 411: Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice

I have done a lot of thinking on this one and I am still struggling to come to a definitive opinion on this game. On one hand it was one of the most rewarding and satisfying games I have played in recent memory but also one of the most infuriating. Having played and finished all of the Dark Souls ga...

Re: Console Special No.8: Nintendo Super Famicom (SNES)

The Super Nintendo to this day is probably still the best console I have had the pleasure of owning. It was also my first games console having owned Atari computers up to this point so it was an exciting time. I can remember going into Dixons every Saturday whilst my mum did the shopping. My brother...

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

Hello,

Would like to request the Wave 64 main title, I don’t believe it has been featured before which is kinda crazy if that is the case. Some classic N64 tuneage right here.

Enjoy

Re: 404: Assassin's Creed Origins

The Assassins Creed series like any other long running franchise you inevitably get fatigue, but what has impressed me over the years is that just when you think “Am done with this series” they introduce a new mechanic, change up the location or have a slightly different slant on the series structur...

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

Happy New Year Sound of Play forum, looking forward to another year of musical treats. Going to kick the year off with a request from one of my favourite vertical shooters from the SNES. Known in Europe and Japan as Super Aleste, and Space Megaforce in America. I don’t really remember much buzz for ...

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

Hello Another fairly recent request. I have just finished playing through the Outer Worlds (a really good video game btw) and thought I would request the title screen music as it is particularly great. I would often save and exit the game so I could come back and listen to this track. It really sets...

Hello, As a massive Rez fan I was massively excited to play the spiritual successor Child of Eden. Although I think it ultimately failed to live up to the huge expectations for many reasons, I think it still delivered a pretty interesting game. Much like Rez before it, the fantastic visuals paired w...

I am still working my way through the Castlevania collection and recently completed the Famicom version of Kid Dracula. I don’t know what I expected from this bizarre game but I rather enjoyed it and was decidedly jolly. The track am requesting is from level 2 which contains a particularly tricky la...

Re: 385: Prey (2017)

My initial impressions were strong, although the visuals didn’t blow me away I liked the design style and whilst the atmosphere wasn’t up to ...

Octahedron is a game I came across through Digital Foundry, John had done a small piece on it during one of his videos and looked bonkers and interesting. Looking for a new platformer I took the plunge and was so pleased I did, it’s a dam good video game. Maybe pushing it a little bit as this track ...

I know you have featured Gower Glove from Far Cry Blood Dragon before on the show, but I don’t think we have had the main theme before? (quick search suggested not, could be wrong) I love this game, everything from the visual style, the sound, Michael Biehn and of course the music. It is like they l...
