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: 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: 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…

All month long, we’ll be counting down from thirty-five to one the people, places, items,…

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…

Top 5: Ambient Soundtracks in Games

Let’s face it. The world as we know it today—2020 and then some—is a very stressful place. I like to fancy myself a generally calm individual, however, even the aura within my own personal bubble has become permanently tinged with anxiety. As such, I find myself turning to my own forms of stress relief; and…

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: 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,…

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…
