#MusicMonday: Final Fantasy XII – “SOrrow-Imperial”

Folks. It’s #MusicMonday once again, and this time, this track really hit me in the feels. I haven’t ever played Final Fantasy XII, but I discovered the soundtrack recently after seeing someone stream the game again on Twitch. This track reminds me a lot of the music for The Last Guardian. Huge sweeping orchestrations and emotionally packed textures fill your ears with joy. So much so I am contemplating buying the game and likely never playing it. So it goes. For all the fans of #MusicMonday, I truly hope you enjoy this one as much as I do.

#MusicMonday – Assassin’s Creed Odyssey – “Enter The Animus” – The Flight

#MusicMonday returns with the powerful and intriguing “Enter The Animus” composed by The Flight. I have yet to play Odyssey, but I stumbled across the soundtrack recently and was impressed with its mystique. Most of the scores for the Assassin’s Creed games have always been impressive in my opinion, and Odyssey’s is shaping up to be no slouch. All I can say is this track may have inspired me to play the game at some point. A man can dream..

#MusicMonday: Bioshock Infinite – “Will The Circle Be Unbroken (Will_Gear Cover)

Hi folks. It’s Monday, which means it’s time for more video game music! This week’s #MusicMonday, is the heavenly track “Will The Circle Be Unbroken”. I immediately fell in love with this song within the first hour of the game. I honestly thought to myself, if Heaven is a real place, this must be it, when I heard it for the first time. Over the weekend I decided to put my own twist on the choral/choir version of the piece, to try and capture the ethereal quality of the in game version. Be careful, as it might put you to sleep. In a good way!

#MusicMonday – Sixto Sounds – “Bloody Wolf Rock Arrangement”

Bloody Wolf is one of my all time favorites from the 8-bit and 16-bit eras of gaming. It’s a flawed masterpiece for the Turbo-Grafx 16, and has a banger of a soundtrack. But this wouldn’t be a normal #MusicMonday if I didn’t try to find a remixed version of one of my favorite video game tunes, would it?

Here comes a heavy metal instrumental version of the first stage, courtesy of Sixto Sounds. Enjoy!

#MusicMonday – Metal Gear Solid 3 – “Old Metal Gear”

#MusicMonday returns with another fine track to start your week. This time, I’m bringing the beachy, seductive vibes of “Old Metal Gear” from the Metal Gear Solid 3 soundtrack. I recently re-exported the entire soundtrack from disc to my computer, and fell in love again with this track along with the entire score. Kick back and relax with this one after a long day at work. Maybe a Margherita would be in order, too.

Until next time..

#MusicMonday: Shadow Of The Colossus – “Prologue”

#MusicMonday returns with “Prologue” from Shadow Of The Colossus. Accompanying the game’s introduction cinematic, Prologue shines with emotion, sadness, loneliness, and hope. There’s a lot of mystery embedded in the flutes, voices, strings, and melodies that engulf your senses. I really enjoyed this soundtrack, and I think it’s fitting for the game’s premise and atmosphere. A story was captured with this score, and Prologue is a showstopper. Enjoy.

#MusicMonday: Deus Ex: Human Revolution – “Everybody Lies” (Michael McCann)

This soundtrack. THIS soundtrack, is so, freaking, good. This track in particular is chock-a-block full of unique, and interesting sounds. It represents mystery, stealth, action, sadness, and just…all the feels! It really captures the intrigue, and curiosity this game exudes at it’s pores. The end of the track concludes, with I can only describe as what you’d hear if you uncovered the world’s biggest secrets, and conspiracies. Perfect for studying or driving.

Enjoy!

#MusicMonday: Final Fantasy VII Remake: Prelude

Folks. I have a lump in my throat after listening to this. For all the FF7 fans around the globe, we now have access to the new FF7 soundtrack, and boy oh boy is it grandiose! The soothing harp arpeggiators, the sweeping orchestral horns, everything about the new version of “Prelude” I think is exactly what we hoped for. It’s more. It’s just more, and sometimes more is a great thing. I’m not crying, you’re crying!

Enjoy,
