“Before Rare was making a game about pirates, but after it had created a game about shooting aliens, the developer released 2006’s Viva Piñata (gameplay / VGMdb) on the Xbox 360, a great gift of a game featuring adorable piñata animals and some surprisingly tricky achievements. But today I want to talk about the game’s lovely music. All of it was created by legendary composer Grant Kirkhope. You might not know his name, but you probably know some of the games he’s worked on. Stuff like Perfect Dark, Donkey Kong 64, Banjo Kazooie, and more recently, Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle.”
"The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion (playlist / longplay / VGMdb) was a big deal when it came out in March of 2006. The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind enjoyed tremendous success on Xbox, catapulting the series into the limelight. People were excited to play the next huge Elder Scrolls game, and it was going to be on the just-released Xbox 360. "
I got a twofer because I been busy making more sausage etc…
I am really enjoying doing this because I am hearing some awesome tracks and some of the history/stories behind the music.
“Today we’re going to talk about Fallout 76’s pastoral ode to nuclear death and irradiated rebirth. No other soundtrack in recent memory has breathed so much life into an otherwise empty and broken game.”
"This song belongs in a Bond movie. Hell, Snake Eater is a Bond movie and Cynthia Harrell’s performance of it ranks her higher than even some of the divas singing actual Bond songs (sorry Billie Eilish).
Harrell’s name might not ring any bells, but if you’re a fan of Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, you’ll recognize her voice from the credits song “I Am The Wind” (VGMdb)."
ugh, i love MGS3, and it’s a great song, it’s just so unfortunate it’s related to “ladder PTSD”. Such a shame they used such great song for the worst moment in the game instead of elevator music, heck it’s a shame they even went with that transition option instead of a loading screen, at some point it just stops being “interactive art” and an insult to the player: "hold “Up” for 7minutes&42seconds - enjoy this beautiful grey wall and flat texture as you go"
Nice list. Thanks. Surely I will use it.
The OST for Silence (a game) has a nice Discount of 80%. I think I sacrifice some Steam founds to get it. Couldnt find those soundtracks on youtube, but worth the try I guess. Will install them later.
