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…

Resonance: Fossil Falls

I know that I can’t say that Super Mario Galaxy is an objectively awesome game, but I really want to! I realize that it trades tight level design for worlds that are often a little too big, and getting Power Moons is altogether too easy. I can acknowledge that. It’s not a perfect game and…

Cary’s Top 10 Video Game Songs

Bringing Resonance month to a close, and following on The Duck of Indeed’s heels (do ducks have heels?), it’s time for me to offer up ten of my most favorite video game songs…of the moment. I add that qualifier there because, there’s always something new to explore when it comes to game music. While the…

Resonance: Rain

The Halo games have changed quite a bit over the past few years, and not always for the better. One could even argue that the series started going downhill right after Halo 3. I disagree. Without getting into it, the Halo series entered its prime with Halo 3 and only started declining with Halo 4…

Resonance: Goron City – Day

If I have but one goal this year, it’s to complete The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild! I started up this game a few months back, and it’s been slow-going ever since. That’s partially of my own doing, because, as many of you know, it’s a huge game with lots of distractions quests….

Resonance: Kushi’s Ride

This is not the first time we’ve written a Resonance post for Okami.  Why, way back in 2013, I wrote about a rather interesting tune called Giant Monster in Wait.  Three years later in 2016, Hatm0nster discussed Battle of Orochi II.  There’s a good reason why Okami has gotten so much attention, for it is…

Resonance: Don’t Think Twice

With all this E3 buzz in the air this week, I found myself drawn away from gaming’s past and focused upon what looks like an almost blindingly bright future. True, this year’s E3 didn’t have everything I wanted to see, but it did have a lot. Rage 2, Death Stranding, Prey DLC, Super Smash Bros….

Resonance: Build That Wall (Zia’s Theme)

An indie darling of 2011, Supergiant Games’ Bastion is undoubtedly a work of art. Late to the party as usual, I only just played it for the first time a few months ago. Knowing its reception and legacy, I can safely now say it’s a self-contained masterpiece in terms of gameplay and style. It’s hard to…

Resonance: Snowy Mountain

For our next Resonance post, we shall be visiting one of the Duck’s favorite platformers, the original Jak and Daxter on the PS2.  This game’s soundtrack is unique in that the music is almost…not there, in a sense.  And that’s kind of what I like about it.  There’s just something about this game that relaxes…
