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…

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…

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: 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: 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: 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…

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…
