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…

YouTube Highlights, Weekly Edition #63

Hi everyone! Thanks a million for visiting once again to share in our weekly round-up of highlights from our YouTube channel!  This past week marked the official start of summer, so what better way to celebrate that with some funny and sunny games? Alright, so maybe Ori and the Bind Forest isn’t exactly what you’d…

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….

Well then, do we have just the remedy for you!  The prescription is: step 1: sit back; step 2: relax; and step 3: enjoy our YouTube Highlights!

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: Uphill Both Ways

So, anyone still remember Halo: Reach? Of course you do! I know I certainly do (…I’m not the only one, right?) I’ve often said that Halo 3 is my favorite of the entire series, and for the most part, that’s true. Halo 3 gave me some of my fondest gaming memories, and was my very…

YouTube Highlights, Weekly Edition #61

Ahhhh, it’s good to be back. And how nice that it just happens to be Friday, because that means it’s time for more YouTube Highlights! In fact, it’s time for an extra-large selection of highlights from our YouTube channel because we took off last week. (Hey, everyone deserves a vacation once in a while, right?)…

Resonance: Tartarus

In case anyone was wondering, I’m still playing Persona 3 Portable. crickets Well, I am. And let me tell you, it’s pretty darn enthralling. I understand that later games in the series do everything Persona-y better, which is fair. At times, P3P has felt repetitive. But even though you’re essentially playing “wash, rinse, repeat” with…

To Regale with Resonance!

With June marking the start of the fun and lighthearted summer months, what better way to kick things off than with a month of music! Nearly since the site’s inception, one of our most popular series is “Resonance,” in which we celebrate the highs (and occasional lows) of game music.  It goes without saying that…

Which means that it’s perfect time for catching up on your watch lists, which must contain plenty from our own YouTube channel! ( 😉 ) We remain firmly…
