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 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..
This is the #MusicMonday I didn’t know I needed today – a heavy metal remix of the intro theme for Soul Blade, the precursor to the popular Soul Calibur fighting game franchise. If you like epic tunes with epic guitars and epic singing, check out this cover from LittleVMills!
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!
It’s been a while since I’ve shared a Banjo Guy Ollie song – but this is one of my favorites, and considering an old Dreamcast Castlevania Demo has recently been found, it seems like a great time to share this classic.
I’ve been playing Streets of Rage 2 in preparation for a guest spot on the Retro Spectives podcast, and while most of the music hasn’t really struck my fancy, this track certainly does – it starts out the game as a prologue, but makes it’s way back around again in the final stage. It’s chill and funky and perfect for a Monday.
#MusicMonday returns with “Adam Jensen”, from the Deus Ex Mankind Divided soundtrack. Clocking in at just over two minutes, this mysterious sci-fi-soaked piece defines the realm in which Adam Jensen lives without failure. Booms, hissing, hits, plucks, all the sounds you’d expect to find in this thrilling title are here, and boy does it provide a cyber-like atmosphere. Get swept away with the glorious sounds of “Adam Jensen” to start your Monday off right!
Today’s #MusicMonday comes at us from a new 8-bit inspired action game, Cyber Shadow. This game has been quite challenging, and I guess it just reaffirms that I suck at videogames. Regardless, the game is fun and the soundtrack is pretty banging.
Give it a listen, and be sure to check out the game too!
