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.
#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!
#MusicMonday returns with “Character Creation Theme” from the Demon’s Souls soundtrack. With the new hype surrounding BluePoint’s Remake of this spectacular game, I felt it appropriate to share this brooding tune. When creating your class, you’re greeted with this haunting, ethereal theme that just loops as it immediately sets the tone for foggy world you’ll be living in for awhile. It’s perfect for reading, studying, meditating, or dare I say it…folding laundry.
Will and Drew have put the nail in the coffin on their Bastion playthrough. What did they think of the game? Does it meet the hype in 2019? Is it worth playing again today?
Also, Drew dives a bit more in-detail with Control and Will chats about the 2014 release of Strider. Plus, thoughts on the newest PT hack, Drew’s backlog spreadsheet, and does Drew want the Genesis Mini?
