Resonance – Pieces of the Past by way of the Phenandra Drifts

Though my gaming plate is pretty full, I recently decided to add in a heap of Fallout 3. I’m specifically after its DLC, and namely the one titled “Into the Pitt.” Why that one in particular? Because some time this year, Fallout 76’s newest expansion, The Pitt, is supposed to be released. It’s supposed to…

Resonance: Stay Out of the Moonlight

A few weeks ago, I decided to revisit the original Psychonauts and see if I could get some of the remaining collectibles that I had missed.  While this whole affair was a mixture of fun and aggravating, one of the best parts of revisiting this game revolved around seeking out the PSI cards, challenge markers,…

Resonance: Secunda [Revisited]

Despite all the games that I simply must finish (ahem *Metroid Dread* ahem), I’ve found myself back in the world of Skyrim. It’s a game that just calls, usually in moments of gaming stress (ahem *Metroid Dread* ahem), as something of a remedy. Indeed, it is, and it’s excellent soundtrack goes a long way in…

Resonance: Galleon Galaxy

Being the spiritual successor to Banjo-Kazooie and sporting the talents of the very same composer, Grant Kirkhope, it’s no wonder the soundtrack of Yooka-Laylee is so darn nostalgic.  Yooka-Laylee proved that it’s possible to feel nostalgia for a game within seconds of starting it.  From the similar personalities of the game’s titular buddy duo to…

Resonance: Mid Boss Mayhem

Even though my time with Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle has been scattershot since I first started playing it, my sessions with the game have been wonderful. Giving credit where credit is due, that’s thanks in large part to its incredible soundtrack. I can’t say that in all my years with Mario and Mario-ish games…

Resonance: Krook’s March

I have Donkey Kong Country 2 on four different consoles, SNES, Wii, Wii U, and now the Switch.  Needless to say, the game is a big deal to me.  As I replayed the game for the umpteenth time on the Switch, I was reminded of just how amazing the game’s soundtrack is.  In fact, this…

Resonance: White Orchard

Inasmuch as Fallout 76‘s version of apocalyptic Appalachia has captured my attention, I’m still trickling through The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. My efforts to remain focused on the main story were so strong there for awhile, and yet…the tug of side-questing and monster hunting has simply been too incessantly interesting to pass up. (Needless to…

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…
