Resonance: Astral Observatory

Out of all the games I’ve played, no game connects with me emotionally quite like Majora’s Mask.  My first exposure to the game was the short-lived playthrough Mother Duck started on our brand new Nintendo 64.  She only completed the beginning of the game, up until you get your ocarina back from Skull Kid.  Intimidated…

Resonance: The Outer Worlds – Main Theme

Even though the Mass Effect series has become my current jam, it doesn’t mean I’ve forgotten about The Outer Worlds. In it, my “new” ship is currently waiting patiently for me to blast off from the town of Edgewater to unknown places and further adventures in the greater galaxy. My character, Charlee, waiting there, too,…

Favorite Nintendo Music: Rundas Battle

Hey all! Our Nintendo celebration continues this week with a look back at our absolute favorites pieces of Nintendo music. With literal decades-worth of music to choose from, picking exactly one track wasn’t exactly an easy decision to make. However, it wasn’t as bad as I thought it was going to be; all it took…

Resonance: City of Tears

After discovering Hollow Knight a few months ago, it quickly became one of my absolute favorite games of the this generation. Heck, it might even land somewhere in my top 15 of all time. I absolutely love this game for so many reasons: its satisfying combat, its unique art direction, its platforming and exploration elements,…

Resonance: Gusty Garden Galaxy

It’s been awhile since I’ve done one of these, but inspiration strikes when it will and I’m not one to argue with such things. Recently, I got into a conversation with a coworker regarding the power of games to move people. We agreed that it can come from almost any element of a game: story,…

Resonance: Fallout 4 Main Theme

Could it be said that a game is only as good as its theme song?  In all the various theme songs that we’ve covered on this site, it may be that, if nothing else, greeting players with memorable music upon starting a game is a very good thing. Not only does a good theme song…

Resonance: Galeem

I know I’ve been talking a heck of a lot about Super Smash Bros Ultimate lately, but darn it, it’s a great game!  I’ve already written posts about the characters, unforgettable moments in World of Light, and I’ve reviewed Ultimate as well as I possibly could, considering it’s such a massive game.  But one thing…

A Tribute to a Tribute – Mortal Kombat: The Album

This year marks the 25th anniversary of the release of one of my favorite game-inspired soundtracks – Mortal Kombat: The Album. This techno romp through the mid-90s world of this now-classic fighting game isn’t for everyone, but it’s lovingly feisty and novel enough for me. My tribute to it here first appeared on Geek Force…

Resonance: Restoring the Light, Facing the Dark

Some of our faithful YouTube watchers may recall that I completed a playthrough of Ori and the Blind Forest: Definitive Edition in the not too distant past. The experience proved to be more challenging and more rewarding than I ever could have expected. And since then, I’ve taken time to replay it…and boy oh boy,…

Resonance: Divine Beast Vah Naboris Battle

Folks, I’m smitten! I thought that The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild was great purely from a gaming standpoint, but oh, its soundtrack has me over the moon! It’s…it’s…simply wonderful! Alright, enough with the gushing. But truly, Breath of the Wild is most definitely my most favorite soundtrack of the moment. I’ve said…
