A random one (not strictly game music) that always gets stuck in my head is:


Curse you Nintendo!


#2402

I could listen to this for the full half an hour


#2403

And this


#2404

Xenon 2, innit?


#2405

Anyone ever play Bastion? Great game, and the music had a great vibe to it

and obviously


#2406

yeah Bastion was weirdly addictive


#2407

I loved the narration. Never finished it, should go back to it really/start it again.


#2408

my favourite bits don’t seem to be on youtube. but this is an amazing soundtrack.


#2409

£52 for the soundtrack? Jeezy creezy.


#2410

it’s out of print on cd. i got the mp3s instead

another belter, got this on vinyl


#2411

this is a great shout


#2412

So so many. As usual, regular reminder for you all to check out the Sound of Play podcast by the Cane & Rinse crew if you don’t already. An hour of great videogame music a week. Some of my favourites:

This made Portal for me:

A golden oldie:

Most of Donkey Kong rules:

Sonic 2: Chemical Plant Zone:

Bayonetta: Fly me to the moon:

And I genuinely think 90% of the reason I was so hyped for BOTW was this trailer score - must have watched it 50+ times before the game came out:


#2413

Podcast sounds great, I’ll give it a go. Thanks.

A few other favourites:

The music in Rayman Legends makes an already brilliant game incredible.

And the Mario Galaxy soundtrack is just unbelievably good:


#2414

I bought an Xbox One a couple of weeks ago in the Amazon Prime sale. Haven’t played computer games in over 10 years and only really wanted to get Gears of War.

Basically, what are the ‘must own’ games I should get? Not overly fussed by Fifa/sports games, but open to most else.


#2415

Get Inside from the online store thing. Should be quite cheap. Incredible game.


#2416

Will look into it. I bought Gears of War 4 from Amazon for £14 and it came with download codes for 1, 2 and 3 as well! Ridiculous value.


#2417

yeah they’re both great shouts, two of the most fun and whimsical games ever


#2418

Also good:

Unravel
Ori and the Blind Forest
Super Meat Boy

Then your mainstream crap:
Forza 6
Battlefield 1
GTA V

Overwatch is supposed to be amazing but I’ve not dabbled yet. Not much of an online gamer.


#2419

Essentials for Xbox One:

The Witcher 3
What Remains of Edith Finch
Inside
Forza Horizon 3
Ori and the Blind Forest
Sunset Overdrive


#2420

Halo 1, 2 & 3 down.

Reach, 4 & 5 to go!

Halo 3 has definitely had the best campaign so far, though 2 had it’s moments.

Will be interesting to see if Reach still holds up.
