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



Could have chosen anything from the Tekken 3 OST as they're all outstanding.

Also, how cool is King?

Whoops. That'll be because it's Follow-My-Ruin. Didn't think that one through sorry.

Re: GTA Online (PS4)

GTA's enjoying a resurgence with the recent Gunrunning update. A few of the community are playing consistently most evenings (BST), should anyone want to jump on in preparation for (potentially) next year's Red Dead Redemption 2 online, now's a great time to join a friendly group on PS4. You can add...

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

More of the superb Unravel soundtrack composed by Henrik Oja and Frida Johansson. I'm somewhat disappointed that there was no hint of a follow up from the original Unravel in this year's E3, I maintain that this game was one of the most positive and refreshing games I've played in recent memory. Thi...

I hope you're planning on another happiness themed show soon, here's a balls to the wall happy tune. Ain't nothing finer than a self indulgent jazz flute solo.

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

I've been playing through Tearaway Unfolded for the first time, I'm a little embarrassed it took this long. Tearaway is one of few games that have caused me to radiate happiness and in some cases belly laugh, not just through gimmickry, but in it's music too. Kenneth C M Young Brian D'Oliveira were ...

Re: Game suggestions for the podcast

Just finished OlliOlli again on the 3ds this time. Both it and OlliOlli 2 - Welcome to Olliwood (groan) have been a perfect gaming accoutrement for the past year for me and even if you can't see a show out of them I heartily recommend them as a game. I don't however recommend playing it on the 3ds ...

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

I've been playing through Earthbound on the 3DS Virtual Console, having emulated it around 15 or so years ago. The game is an absolutely fascinating curio, something isn't quite right. It feels very much like a Japanese interpretation of an American place, then viewed by a British person 22 years la...

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

I've been playing through MGS5 once more in an effort to hit the 100% and I got thinking about the first stealth game I ever played. Turns out from my old collection and that dubious honour seems to belong to the Master System port of Bonanza Brothers. Memories of engineering chase sequences just to...

2 submissions which I love to hate. Ireland from Broken Sword, a song which seems to have been burned into my skull through through overexposure. I'm fairly certain that I'm one of many people who can't put a number on how many rotations of this particular tune they've heard all courtesy of that dam...

Re: SoP submissions *please read first post*

I tend not to play newly released games, but I've been keeping my eyes on Unravel since E3 2015 when Martin Sahlin of Coldwood delivered his nervously sincere speech. I think then I'd committed to a day 1 purchase, just to reciprocate this guy's passion for his creation, regardless of how the game t...

Re: SoP submissions *please read first post*

Born in the mid 80s, I played only NES until long into the launch of the 16 BIT generation, and I definitely had no concept of musical quality, or what a sound channel was until my best friend was given a Mega Drive one Christmas, I have a really vivid memory of playing the two games he had at the t...

Re: SoP submissions *please read first post*

Heal - Ico - composed by sound unit "Pentagon" (Koichi Yamazaki & Mitsukuni Murayama) 9jcKQqZLbJk For the most part, the soundtrack in Ico seems so subtle and ambient that it's almost not there, which is accompanied by prolonged silence. Heal seems to hit a lovely niche in which it's ambient in and ...

In what feels like the podcast-suggestion equivalent of shooting fish in a barrel I'd like to put forward the Final Fantasy prelude. While they're all largely variations on a theme I've shared the prelude from Final Fantasy IX for the arbitrary reason that I like it most... 9yjp6MmBhoQ Uematsu famou...

Re: Our next-but-one podcast recording: Valiant Hearts: The Great War

I wonder why they chose to interject some really harrowing subject matter with comedy. I don't find it so much jarring or insensitive as bit of a waste of opportunity. I found the finished product to be similar to an educational game you'd find in a school. Like a vehicle for imparting information a...

Bully main theme. XRJu92Ndh6Q It's not often that game music has much influence on what I find fun about a game. This track has a mischievous quality that seems to inspire my inner hedonist.

Re: Game suggestions for the podcast

No doubt this has cropped up at some point, but it would be great to hear a show on the F-Zero series. Great memories of the original way back when, and a feather in my gaming hat is definitely seeing off the cruelly difficult F-Zero GX last year after some 10 years of trying, what a game!

Re: All things Assassin's Creed

I listened to the podcast on AC3 earlier today. I did 100% the single player, not out of some compulsion to finish everything, rather a very British feeling of comfort in the monotony in those woeful side quests. That's probably a good indictment of my feeling towards the game, many hours input yet ...

Aural goodness:



Peaceful Repose seems to capture what made Flower such a special game, it evokes such a tangible sense of catharsis and peace. My two year old son seems to respond to it in the same way I do. Beautiful piece.
