Resonance: Castle from Yoshi’s Island

Yoshi’s Island is a charming game from the SNES era that I didn’t get the pleasure of playing until not too terribly long ago.  The game’s crayon-like art style and general adorableness pairs well with upbeat music, the likes of which have been stuck in my head thanks to Super Smash Bros long before I…

Resonance: The Abyss

One of my all-time favorite video game series has always been Rayman.  The games are seriously some of the most creative and unique out there, from the lush and intricately detailed locations, bizarre creatures, and amazing soundtrack.  I have actually already discussed the series’ soundtrack twice before (you can find the links at the bottom…

Resonance: Twin Demons

Okami is one of my favorite games of all time thanks to its unique art style, gameplay, and an amazing soundtrack that includes several of my favorite songs of all time.  In the past, I had discussed Wawku Shrine in the snowy land of Kamui.  It is here that Ammy encounters some of her toughest…

Resonance: Wawku Shrine

We’ve already written about the Okami soundtrack three times in the past because it’s just that good.  Today we’ll be discussing one of my absolute favorite songs of all time, Wawku Shrine.  This is the shrine where resides the Twin Demons, two clockwork owls called Lechku and Nechku.  Being one of the final locations in…

Resonance: Ghost House

Super Mario World was the Mario game that I grew up with.  Though it took many years before I was ever able to actually beat it myself, I still looked back on it with (mostly) fond memories, as a symbol of my childhood, alongside such classics as Donkey Kong Country and The Legend of Zelda:…

Resonance: Greenpath

Music is a vital part of any gaming experience, as vital as the characters, story, and gameplay.  For me, and assuredly so many others, a game’s soundtrack can act as an emotional link between the player and the game, making a fictional world feel so much more real and alive.  While plenty of games are…

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: City of Tears

After discovering Hollow Knight a few months ago, it quickly became one of my absolute favorite games of the this generation. Heck, it might even land somewhere in my top 15 of all time. I absolutely love this game for so many reasons: its satisfying combat, its unique art direction, its platforming and exploration elements,…

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…
