Re: Avengers: Endgame (Spoiler Thread)

The "Loki got away" moment was erased from the main timeline, right?

Also, I thought it was a funny nod back to the earlier films when Cap swore, but I thought it would have been better if he just swore once instead of twice. It felt weird that it was a two-time thing.

Re: Avengers: Endgame (Spoiler Thread)

I just saw it, and I admit that things haven't had time to really settle in just yet, but there are a few points of confusion that I had during the movie: The limiting factor in the "we only have one chance" time heist was that Pym particles are an extremely finite resource. But couldn't they just p...

Re: Sound of Play: 192

There is an Ori-sounding song from FRU (my GOTY for 2016), but unfortunately, I can't find videos of it online to point to for reference. I had to record my own audio from the game itself.

Re: Sound of Play: 192

I don't believe there is any Ori in there, but if you can point to a timecode, I can fish up what it is. Also, yes, I'll double-down on what Leon said about release years. I count a game's release year as the year that it debuted, regardless of the region or system. Even if our audiences may not hav...

Certainly not as good of a theme song as Mirror's Edge 1's.

Re: Sound of Play: 192

Nice work, folks. Remember -- music behind the vocal clips is not always from the same game that the vocals come from, so even if you identify one portion, it may not be telling the whole story ;)

Y'all are even getting some of the really tricky ones.

Re: Sound of Play: 192

Thanks, KSub.

Again, the video (with the answers) will be posted one week from today. YMMV, depending on how strict the copyright bots are in your country.

Re: Dark Souls III - Cane and Rinse 361

Gotta say -- I side with Jacob 100% in the DS3 debate. I like all of the references to past Dark Souls stuff in this game precisely because it doesn't make sense. To me, Dark Souls is less of a world being built than a story being told. Like myth, details warp and shift in the telling. Dark Souls 3'...

Thanks, all!

Naturally, the time codes pasted above do not correlate with the podcast, as that has the spoken intro. If you wish to match it with just the music, you can use the standalone download link: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1pVl8b ... qGy1g9OwdZ

Oh yeah, the Conker song was from Pocket Tales. I was surprised that bits of the Pocket Tales soundtrack was reused for Bad Fur Day.

Re: Sound of Play: 180

The Smash 4 victory fanfare was really painful. It's a 15 second loop of staccato trumpet, and I swear it went on one for a good 3-5 minutes. The Game And Watch one was just grating on the ears - I can see it working as BGM when there's all kinds of stuff happening on the screen, but in isolation, ...

Re: Sound of Play: 2018 special

I had to remove some pieces because the games were delayed into 2019, but some stuff might have made it past my radar. The only one I know that I cheated a bit with was Dragon Quest, which came out last year in Japan and this year in the west, but I felt bad for not including it last year.

Re: Sound of Play: 2018 special

Thanks, everyone! I'm glad you're having fun listening to it so far.

As a hint, when game audio is overlayed onto music, they don't always represent the same game. Sometimes, but not always 😉

Tied with the TCGS GOTY show as my favourite 2017 end-of-year special. I hope you take that as very high praise!
A very good creative spelling on this one :!:

Just to be confusing, Craig’s time codes up there are from the podcast episode, so you need to add ten minutes on to mine to make them line up cause I’ve done if from the soundcloud file. Flabyo, you Tweeted me expressing interest in some of the tracks included in this medley. I'm making a predicti...
