We’re getting down to the wire! Sony has a conference planned for their final PS5 reveal, while Xbox just threw those details out into the wild after a surprise leak. What does Will expect from the PS5 conference? What did Drew think of the Xbox Series S? And what will bring either to the other side for launch?
One of my favorite computer games when I was a child was Quake. Everyone knows I was a huge Doom fan, but Quake was something different. It felt like the next generation leap to full 3D, and with it it brought actual CD-quality music thanks to Trent Reznor and Nine Inch Nails.
I would regularly pop the game disc into my CD player, skip track 1 (data track) and just listen to the rest of the album. The title track, heard here, is probably my favorite.
Thanks to Tyler for reminding me how awesome this soundtrack is!
Will and Drew held a community game night and played Fall Guys for the first time. Was the game as fun as everyone talks about? Plus, the two have plans to run co-op in Portal 2, Will is eager for Black Myth: Wukong, Drew tried Touhou Luna Nights, and much more!
Flying over Skyrim’s world on a dragon is now possible, well, by listening to this track and diving into your wildest imaginations. Skyrim is a spectacular experience, and Jeremy Soule’s work on the soundtrack is nothing short of amazing. Wind Guide You is one that sort of sneaks up on you when you listen to the score in order. I feel it encapsulates everything that is grand about Skyrim’s world. It’s triumphant, it’s sad, its harmonious, and it’s deeply moving.
After months of prodding from the community, Will has broken down and played Sayonara Wild Hearts on the PS4. What did he think of the game? Will dives in deep. Plus, Will has been playing Child of Light. Drew chats about Spiritfarer, and gives an update on his experience with Papers, Please on the PS Vita.
Drew has beaten three games! Everyone rejoice! They’re short, but hey, they’re beaten! Drew talked about Carrion, Afterparty, and The Touryst in-depth, plus Will chats about his co-op experience with Dark Souls.
Today, I am posting something a little different than usual. My SoundCloud! There are no video games soundtracks here, but you will find video gamey tracks created by yours truly. Here’s one of my latest, “Selection Screen”.
We had a sudden and unexpected week off thanks to Tropical Storm Isaias, which left Will without power for over a week and dropped a freaking tree on top of his car! Will provides an update to what’s been going on during this entire situation, and Drew chimes in with an update on his Staycation.
Oh, and there’s an extensive mailbag that was filled with awesome questions from our Discord community.
Man. I sort of forgot how special this game is, and more importantly how special the soundtrack is to Gris. I really love this track because of the way it builds and has this epic crescendo with the trumpets and horns. Gris’ soundtrack is ethereal and haunting, yet touching, and beautiful. It’s something special, folks. Give it a listen!
After the weighty review for The Last of Us Part II, Will and Drew take it easy this week and catch up with some of the nonsense going on in their lives. Will has been thoroughly enjoying his keyboard, while Drew has been fighting wasps and updating the Miniature Gamestop. Plus, Drew’s checked out Carrion, the PS5 will support some PS4 peripherals, and much more!
