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….

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…

YouTube Highlights, Weekly Edition #62

Hello, good people! Are you recovering from an E3 hangover? 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! Indeed, it’s that time of week where we share a few videos from our YouTube channel. And what a…

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: 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…

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: 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…

Virtual Bastion: Then and Now

I’m sure I’m starting to sound like a broken record when I say that five years is a long time. Virtual Bastion has largely remained the same since the beginning, but there’s also no denying that it’s grown too. Instead of trying to provide a service we couldn’t possibly deliver on in any meaningful way,…

YouTube Highlights, Weekly Edition #60

Greeting friends! As many of you reading know, not only is it Friday and therefore time for our YouTube Highlights, but it is also a three-day weekend! 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…

An Interview with 2013

This month we’re celebrating Virtual Bastion’s 5-year anniversary by sharing our favorite memories of the site, blogging, gaming, and our online friendships. Join us as we take a trip down memory lane! Any year is a good year to start a gaming blog, but starting one in 2013 was especially good. Maybe it wasn’t obvious…
