So I went back and watched a couple different Let’s Players try out Metal Gear Solid V (specifically the GirlGamerGaB prologue playthrough with Stefanie Joosten, who voices/modeled Quiet in MGSV), and now I’ve got David Bowie’s The Man Who Sold the World stuck in my head. »
Recently I’ve been playing or revisiting a few Legend of Zelda games in preparation for a large ranking article about the series. What’s remarkable about the series is how consistent it is - Zelda is practically its own genre of game, the only other similar franchise I can think of is Okami. And at the same time, each… »
Natsume Mito’s second single 8-Bit Boy, is an uplifting retro video game inspired song that will have you singing/humming along in no time. The song is being used for the Japanese dubbed version of the movie Pixels but don’t let that put you off.

We’re just one day away from a game’s 15th Anniversary North American release date. A game which some may not not wish to celebrate. No matter your thoughts on the divisive Chrono Cross, Yasunori Mitsuda created one hell of a worthy successor to Chrono Trigger in its soundtrack. »
