#MusicMonday: Streets of Rage 2 – S.O.R Super Mix

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.

Enjoy!

#musicMonday: Deus Ex: Mankind Divided – “Adam Jensen”

#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!

#MusicMonday: Uncharted 3 – “Nate’s Theme 3.0”

Well, folks. Another game beat, another #MusicMonday to celebrate. This week’s track is entitled “Nate’s Theme 3.0” and is nothing short of epic. Cue the soaring orchestral violins and the brass for an awakening theme that invigorates the sense of adventure. It’s catchy, fun, dramatic, and full of emotion. Uncharted 3 was a fantastic experience, and so it this track along with the rest of the score. Enjoy!

#MusicMonday – Haven – “Source”, by Danger

Haven is a fairly unique RPG that explores a long-term relationship, while giving players the freedom to explore on their own terms. The soundtrack is absolutely wonderful – it’s upbeat and vibrant, calm and relaxing, and everything in between.

I chose this track, quite frankly, because every time it came on, my wife would start whistling along to it. It’s that addictive.

Be sure to check out the rest of the soundtrack, though. You won’t be disappointed!

I hope you enjoy!

#MusicMonday – Gravity Rush 2 – “Lei Havina”

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 – The Last Guardian – “Overture Lore”

Wow, folks. Just wow. I haven’t played The Last Guardian yet, however, it’s getting played this week, for sure. I love video game soundtracks, and I often will preview a games score before playing the game. I think it’s safe to say that some soundtracks have sort of, forced me to like mediocre games. Anyway, this soundtrack is soul stirring, uplifting, sad, and invigorating all at the same time. I hope you find solace in this wondrous piece from what appears to be, a very magical game.

Super Mario 3D All-Stars was released earlier this month, and there’s a ton of catchy music in Super Mario 64.

#MusicMonday – Demon’s Souls – “Character Creation Theme”

#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.

Enjoy!
