Game music: Homeworld

Homeworld BoxWhen it comes to space-based strategy games nothing comes even close to the Homeworld series’ mastery of the genre. From humble beginnings shuffling about a handful of ships to the epic climax seeing you in command of a mighty fleet of capital ships, Homeworld remains unmatched to this day.

Game music: Serious Sam 3 BFE

Serious Sam 3 BFE OST CoverThe original Serious Sam games hold a special place in my heart – I’ve never been much of a multiplayer gamer but some of my fondest memories of of ad-hoc, jury-rigged LAN parties – Unreal Tournament, Quake 3, Age of Empires 2, Rune and Serious Sam 2.

Bastion minus most of Bastion

Bastion Banner

Everyone knows Bastion is a great game (and yes, has great music). Over at SDA a speedrunner called Vulajin has managed to finish the game in only 15 minutes and 9 seconds. Just… wow.

Having only the lifespan of a single mortal human I haven’t had chance to play the more recent instalments with their movie-length cutscenes but that doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy the music.

Cadence: Brain-fizzing frustration has never been so tranquil

Cadence Banner

It’s Sunday so something relaxing is in order. Cadence from Made With Monster Love initially seemed to fit the bill perfectly, the demo’s tutorial easing you in with such calm and gradual assurance that it was a bit of a surprise when I realised I was playing a fiendishly clever puzzle game.

Game music: Mass Effect 2

Mass Effect 2 OST CoverJust as the story, gameplay and overall tone evolves as the Mass Effect Trilogy progresses, so too does the music. Jack Wall reprises his role in Mass Effect 2, bringing us a soundtrack that – unlike the game – stands as a worthy successor to the first.

You Died: DarkMaus

DarkMaus Header

Sometimes all it takes to interest you in a game is a single image or video. Sometimes all it takes is a title or a name. And sometimes all it takes is a one-line description.

Game music: Mirror’s Edge

MIrrors Edge OST CoverWith a sequel on the way, and sounding disappointingly combat-centric, it’s worth looking back at the flawed gem that was Mirror’s Edge, from that brief period when EA actually had a go at releasing new and interesting games.
