Resonance: Castle from Yoshi’s Island

Yoshi’s Island is a charming game from the SNES era that I didn’t get the pleasure of playing until not too terribly long ago.  The game’s crayon-like art style and general adorableness pairs well with upbeat music, the likes of which have been stuck in my head thanks to Super Smash Bros long before I…

Resonance: The Abyss

One of my all-time favorite video game series has always been Rayman.  The games are seriously some of the most creative and unique out there, from the lush and intricately detailed locations, bizarre creatures, and amazing soundtrack.  I have actually already discussed the series’ soundtrack twice before (you can find the links at the bottom…

Resonance: Twin Demons

Okami is one of my favorite games of all time thanks to its unique art style, gameplay, and an amazing soundtrack that includes several of my favorite songs of all time.  In the past, I had discussed Wawku Shrine in the snowy land of Kamui.  It is here that Ammy encounters some of her toughest…

Resonance: Wawku Shrine

We’ve already written about the Okami soundtrack three times in the past because it’s just that good.  Today we’ll be discussing one of my absolute favorite songs of all time, Wawku Shrine.  This is the shrine where resides the Twin Demons, two clockwork owls called Lechku and Nechku.  Being one of the final locations in…

Resonance: Ghost House

Super Mario World was the Mario game that I grew up with.  Though it took many years before I was ever able to actually beat it myself, I still looked back on it with (mostly) fond memories, as a symbol of my childhood, alongside such classics as Donkey Kong Country and The Legend of Zelda:…

Resonance: Greenpath

Music is a vital part of any gaming experience, as vital as the characters, story, and gameplay.  For me, and assuredly so many others, a game’s soundtrack can act as an emotional link between the player and the game, making a fictional world feel so much more real and alive.  While plenty of games are…

Resonance: The Spirit Dias

I’m honestly not sure how the overall soundtrack stacks up against the rest of the Fire Emblem series since I’ve only played two other games so far. Even so, I can at least say that this is personal favorite since so many of its songs are still bouncing around in my noggin. As I mentioned…

Resonance: God Shattering Star

Usually when time comes to pen a “Resonance” post, I think back on music I’ve encountered while playing through one game or another. Game music usually grabs my attention when I hear it in context, so it’s those tracks that tend to get Resonance posts. This time is different though. This time I’m featuring a…

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,…
