Resonance: Gusty Garden Galaxy

It’s been awhile since I’ve done one of these, but inspiration strikes when it will and I’m not one to argue with such things. Recently, I got into a conversation with a coworker regarding the power of games to move people. We agreed that it can come from almost any element of a game: story,…

Resonance: Galeem

I know I’ve been talking a heck of a lot about Super Smash Bros Ultimate lately, but darn it, it’s a great game!  I’ve already written posts about the characters, unforgettable moments in World of Light, and I’ve reviewed Ultimate as well as I possibly could, considering it’s such a massive game.  But one thing…

A Tribute to a Tribute – Mortal Kombat: The Album

This year marks the 25th anniversary of the release of one of my favorite game-inspired soundtracks – Mortal Kombat: The Album. This techno romp through the mid-90s world of this now-classic fighting game isn’t for everyone, but it’s lovingly feisty and novel enough for me. My tribute to it here first appeared on Geek Force…

YouTube Highlights, Weekly Edition #83

Happy Friday, friends! It is that glorious time of the week where we take a moment to share some of the best o’ the best from our week on YouTube! And what a week it as been!  While we bid adieu to the adventures of the Kongs in Donkey Kong Country Returns, we welcomed them…

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,…

The Duck’s Top 10 Video Game Songs

While we have discussed often songs that have resonated with us (and the Duck has frequently listed top 5’s and 10’s from various games over on my own blog), we have yet to compile a list of our top songs from video games in general.  Today, I am going to right this wrong with a…

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: 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…

Resonance: Waterfall

It is no secret that the Duck adores Undertale.  One of the many things I love about the game is its amazing soundtrack, which is easily one of my favorites from any game.  I have already written a resonance post about Here We Are, which plays when you explore the True Lab, and today we…

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…
