    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 ...

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 ...

  199. Ape Escape “The Lost Land – Primordial Ooze” (Soichi Terada) “I’m ashamed I didn’t make this epiphany sooner. The PERFECT thinking music. Promordial Ooze stood out because of the motivating swell behind the four-second spiral. A constant force building toward a goal with little diversion or sudden shock. Tranquil, ...

  185. Tetrisphere “Prophetic” (Neil Voss) “Why yes, one of favorite N64 soundtracks! Prophetic sticks out in particular because of how infectious the percussion sounds with the techno.
