It’s that time again. Time for a #MusicMonday post. This week we are featuring “Threshold” from the Journey soundtrack, composed by Austin Wintory. Most know my love for this game, and like many others, this game and soundtrack touched my heart. Journey is such a unique experience to everyone that plays it and the soundtrack to the game compliments that personal endeavor so well. “Threshold” is just one of the many fine pieces in this game’s sweeping score. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
It’s like a book club but for games! Every month we will choose a game to play through as a community and discuss at pre-determined spots as a group. We will meet in Discord at the half-way point to chat about the game openly.
The game is set in the year 1912 and follows its protagonist, former Pinkerton agent Booker DeWitt, who is sent to the airborne city of Columbia to find a young woman, Elizabeth, who has been held captive there for most of her life. Though Booker rescues Elizabeth, the two become involved with the city’s warring factions: the nativist and elite Founders that rule Columbia and strive to keep its privileges for White Americans, and the Vox Populi, underground rebels representing the underclass of the city. During this conflict, Booker learns that Elizabeth possesses strange powers to manipulate “Tears” in the space-time continuum that ravage Columbia, and soon discovers her to be central to the city’s dark secrets.
Bioshock Infinite is available on PC, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Xbox One/Xbox Series (backwards compatible), and Nintendo Switch. It is also part of Bioshock: The Collection, which is also available on most current platforms. It has a How Long to Beat time of 11.5 hours for the main story. There are a total of 40 Chapters. At the end of the month we’ll be chatting about the game in Discord using Discord’s new stages!
We’ll be checking in and discussing the game on our Discord Channel throughout the month of April. We’d love to have you join us there, or on Twitter using the hashtag #WDGRGameClub!
#MusicMonday returns with this stealthy piece from MGS PW. One of my favorite Metal Gear games. It packs so much mystery and intrigue that I find it hard to ignore. I remember when I was playing the game, this music would kick in when in codec conversations with Miller. When you hear it you feel like you’re obtaining top-secret classified intel and who wouldn’t want that sweat to bear? I hope you enjoy the suspenseful undertones of this tactical espionage track as much as I do.
Man oh man it this soundtrack phenomenal. Not only I am absolutely in love with this game, the soundtrack is taking my breath away. The moment “Lei Havina” started to play, I immediately thought, there’s no way the soundtrack could get any better than this. And it did, more than once. “Lei Havina” is a hypnotic, mesmerizing theme that stays with you long after its sultry hypnosis. Think Kenny G flying over blissful skies with violins being played by Angels….following his Superman fantasies. Anyway, enjoy!
It’s the first episode of the new year, and Will and Drew take a look back at all of the games they played in 2020 – new and old – and hand out some awards! What game gets the Willie and the Drewie for Game of the Year? How about Best Hairstyle? Best Music? Tune in to find out!
It’s the last episode of WDGR of 2020, and Will and Drew have a ton to talk about, including some of the games they finished this year, what caught their attention, and an extensive mailbag segment. Plus, live chatter with the Twitch chat, and more!
Drew has played about 10 hours of Cyberpunk 2077 on the Xbox Series X, and has walked away from it mostly optimistic. How does it run on the Series X? Are there any bugs? How does he feel about how the game runs on the other consoles?
Plus, Will tried to watch The Game Awards, but couldn’t finish. Drew watched the entire show. Both had vastly differing opinions. Who was in the right? Let us know!
Will has finally defeated The Last Guardian! After a few weeks of being down on the game, Will makes a shocking statement. Did the game get dramatically better? Or did it continue down a negative path?
