Stuck in traffic this morning? Sitting at your desk with nothing to do (like me)? Check out some fresh tunez to liven up your day! This morning is a song called Breakazoid by Mitch Murder. Very coolwave/Hotline Miami-esque. Definitely worth a listen.
Welcome back to my weekly series, where I ask the TAY community to help me create a soundtrack for my life. This week the theme is going to be boss battles. Now, I want to actually start out by saying that I have fantastic bosses, so I don’t really view encounters with them as “battles.” Additionally, I am not going…
I have been thinking about doing this for quite some time, and today seems like as good a day as any. Over two years ago, Lifehacker reported on a study regarding the effects of video game music on productivity. The findings of the study didn’t really surprise me at all, as I have used video game soundtracks as my…

After a shaky first year of life, we’re pleased an early time of death didn’t have to be called on the Nintendo 3DS. Otherwise, this five year anniversary would have been a lot more depressing.
Not too long ago, I was nonchalantly browsing through Facebook, when I happened upon a video (below). Its description read “No music, just pure straight-six eargasm.” My immediate reaction was “This is exactly what I need right now.”

Chances are if you’re a fan of video game music you’ve hit up YouTube to search for that epic boss anthem or listen to a playlist from your favorite game to get you through the work day. One YouTube channel is working tirelessly to upload all your favorite video game music...kind of.
There’s nothing quite as wonderful as JRPGs’ common practice of utilizing sweeping compositions to accompany equally vast journeys. Trails of Cold Steel is not much different. But what’s even more striking about the latest installment in The Legend of Heroes’ series, is when its soundtrack deviates from this norm.
