Backloggers Anonymous The Soundtrack Special

Bust out your headphones, this one’s for the music fans.

Great news! Well, for me anyway - I’m on vacation. What this means is we won’t be talking about Darksiders this week. Instead, I’ve decided to solo this podcast and talk about one of my favorite things about modern gaming: the music.

We’ll get started talking about the awesomeness that is Capcom, whose 8 bit chiptunes are in an elite class with the likes of Konami and Nintendo themselves. There’s a big reason why they were my favorite developer as a child, and a lot of that had to do with their music.

We won’t be stopping there though. What do Link and Gene Wilder have in common? What was the one redeeming quality about some of utter garbage Ocean crapped out on the SNES? It’s all here, so put on your headphones and start listening, because those lousy PC speakers aren’t gonna cut it this time!

I do have one bit of bad news. At the end of the podcast I promised a link, however, the creator's site is apparently down as none of the links to their MP3s currently work. Instead, here's a link to a YouTube video of another song from that album. From there, you can find out more about the author and listen to some more of their music, as well as see his channel and website.

Tick the "Remember Me" box at the top of the page (left) before you login, so as to not have to login everytime. Unless of course you prefer to login everytime.

I just listened to this (finally).  Why isn't this it's own show?  I'm pretty sure you were looking for more to do around here.  I think this is it.  ENTERTAIN ME!

Dragon's Crown Review

One thing that makes remasters interesting is to see just how a particular game has changed over the years. Dragon’s Crown is fascinating because mechanically the game shows absolutely no signs of aging. In fact, Nick’s review from 2013 still describes the experience you will get now. The six classes remain diverse and varied, offering their own unique experience and encouraging to replay and try them all. The depth in the mechanics and level design remain just as deep now. The art style is still not for everyone, but gorgeous from a technical standpoint, especially now in 4K.
