Bioshock Infinite’s OST Cockup, And How You Can Fix It (Repost w/ edits) 

First, I want to make it clear that the Bioshock Infinite OST is good, and as I’ve said before, I love the OSTs composer Garry Schyman so very much. However, Irrational Games has made a mistake.
As you likely noticed during your playthrough of the game, there are a number of …

Two Brothers OST: We Don’t Get The Full Picture

Two Brothers OST: We Don’t Get The Full Picture 

It’s hard to look at role-playing game soundtracks without having played the game; they’re so tied to specific scenes that sometimes they don’t stand well on their own. I think the  Two Brothers soundtrack may be relegated to this category, but some of the 80-some-odd songs stand out. Many feel …

Mark of the Ninja OST: The End Song is Offputting

Mark of the Ninja OST: The End Song is Offputting 

This post is kinda cheaty; to be blunt, there isn’t a lot to the Mark of the Ninja OST; they’ve only posted two songs (both below). During gameplay, you get ambiance that ranges from ominous violin and gong tones to angry taiko-sounding drums and frantic violins. During the cutscenes, for …

Spiral Knights OST: Adorably Awesome 

Recently I’ve been going through my old games, and I picked up Spiral Knights, a free-to-play MMO from Three Rings (yeah, the guys who do Puzzle Pirates). I was first attracted to the game b/c the artist from one of my favourite comics was the game’s lead artist, but once …

Guns of Icarus Online OST

Guns of Icarus Online OST 

As you can probably guess, I’ve been playing a lot of Guns of Icarus Online recently, and I think it’s time I talk about the soundtrack. It’s a topic I’ve rather avoided because honestly, aside from the intro title and the battle music, I’ve never really noticed the music. I’m …

Fable OST: The Power of Nostalgia Goggles

Fable OST: The Power of Nostalgia Goggles 

Recently I’ve really needed comfort food, and very few game soundtracks are more comforting than that of the original Fable. When I started this post, I was trying to pinpoint why I love the soundtrack so much – I knew that a lot of its comfort comes from my nostalgia …
