I can finally start the fight. My Halo OST vinyl has arrived in the mail! I rip open the packaging, and there it was before me. One of my favorite video game OST is on vinyl, and it is finally mine!
The packaging is gorgeous. The artwork with Master Chief is well done, and the vinyl itself is a slick-looking green (although not quite the same green as Master Chief's armor).
The music features 16 songs on a single LP. Same great songs I love from Martin O'Donnell and Michael Salvatori, but adapted and orchestrated by four different composers. These four still did an incredible job, and the score was exactly what I expected. These songs bring back memories, and are great to just sit down and listen to.
The Halo OST vinyl exceeded my expectations, and provided an amazing listening experience.
Same great music
Great looking vinyl that sounds top-notch
Not enough songs
It's preventing me from playing Ni No Kuni right now! (I'm loading up the game as I type this!)
How I've missed this site and the people here. It's been a long time since I've been to Destructoid, or played video games at all. I've missed it, that's a fact.
For the past two years I've been serving a mission for my churchwww.mormon.org. It was a great experience, and I've grown in many ways. While I was a missionary I couldn't play games, or use internet besides email family once a week. My brother would tell me very little news of the gaming world, so I was out of the loop for two years. I barely got home not too long ago, and I feel very overwhelmed. Two years of gaming news, and I don't know where to start.
I would ask the Destructoid community to please help me catch up. Let me know some of the biggest news that's happened in the past two years. What changes have there been to Destructoid? What rumors have been lurking around? What cool indie games have come out? You can just tell me a little bit, or link a sweet Destructoid article.
Thank you so much everybody! It's good to be back.
