Game Music Daily Week 36: Dear Esther, Evoland, Super Mario 64, Destiny, Spyro 3, Star Trek Online, Saya No Uta

  248. Dear Esther “Dear Esther” (Jessica Curry) “Where was this when i was a moody teenager!? Seriously, listening to this OST makes me riddled with repentance and remorse. It’s like a nonverbal Adele album, all I do is feel terrible. Oddly enough there’s a track titled 21, a relatively joyful ...

      241. InMomentum “Flyover” (Gareth Coker) “Forgotten gem of 2011? Oh, I’d say so. Another Shatter-like game where the progressive, kinectic soundtrack takes precedence over the game. Less so electric dance and nuanced than Module’s masterpiece, Gareth Coker still delivers a stellar arrangement of tracks taking in the ease ...

  234. Super Hexagon “Focus” (Chipzel) “Chiptune rave commence! That’s the best way (in my mind) to describe Chipzel’s musical style. It took me to Super Hexagon where her music nudged me to slog through the arduous, twitch gameplay just for the engrossing score. ‘Focus’ in particular stuck out, not just ...

    227. Child of Light “Pilgrims On a Long Journey” (Coeur De Pirate) “Child of Light may be overlooked by the year’s end. Likely forever to be noted as Ubisoft’s poetic (in the literal and visual sense) JRPG homage riddled with rhyming, though I enjoyed Child of Light for what ...

      220. Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon “Warzone” (PowerGlove) “Short on time today, so no quasi-soundtrack review. With that I bring you a strange standout song from the BEST version of Far Cry 3, Warzone. Why do I dig it? Simple, Terminator 2. So much of the heavy, pounding ...

    213. Defiance “The Battle of San Francisco” (Bear McCreary) “In between random assignments and chores, my playlist stumbled on some game music, specifically Bear McCreary’s wonderfully dance-y Defiance score. ‘Stumbled’ wouldn’t be the right word, no, more like slipping into a cave full of Black Widow spiders participating in ...

206. Ratchet & Clank 2: Going Commando “Maktar Nebula – Boss Battle” (David Bergeaud) “Ooooooh, the buildup! Or should I say the buildups? Every minute in the boss battle on Maktar Nebula brings a minutely different journey to the crescendo. Whether some musical elements growing in volume, upping its tempo, either ...

The Port Report: Rogue Legacy (Vita)

The Port Report: Rogue Legacy (Vita)

Rogue Legacy shook up the roguelike genre over a year ago on PC. We were big fans. The game dared to challenge conventions thrown at the roguelike genre, and had a sense of humor that was both subtle and unsubtle where it had to be. Now the game is again shaking ...
