About
I'm mostly a retro gamer. I don't hate everything after the 90's, but I tend to prefer retro game design. I enjoy alot of indie and portable games, not to mention a blockbuster title every now and then. However, like I said, the majority of my gaming takes place on older consoles.

Music is relative. It effects us in such a personal way that we can't possibly hope to describe the extent of that effect to anyone. It's why we are so protective (and sometimes even snobby) about it. Your personal taste in music will always be better to you than anyone else. So it's best to probably just accept that.

Here I will weekly (heh...) choose a piece of game music that I love and share it! Then talk about it. Not too complex, but I hope it's something you'll enjoy!



AAAAAAND... WELCOME BACK!

After a 2 month hiatus Sound Test is back! I was frantically searching for a song epic enough to celebrate this occasion and I believe this is it. Last summer, when I joined Destructoid, I kept hearing about an RPG that many felt was a love letter to the RPGs of old. I was intrigued, but ultimately ignored these claims and dismissed them as hype. However, one weekend I had a few extra Blockbuster points and decided to rent Lost Odyssey... Which I then played for nearly 20 hours straight. In that span of time, I laughed, I cursed, and I even cried. Lost Odyssey is truly an amazing game and it reminds me of why and when I joined Destructoid a year ago.

Nobuo Uematsu composed the score. 'Nuff said.

This particular song has relevance to me because I was stuck on the game's second boss FOREVER!! You know which one I'm talking about? The stupid, giant, electric worm? Oh, and the BEST part about this boss? You have to fight another one immediately afterward. Even though I was swearing up a storm, resisting the urge to throw my controller, and feeling like giving up, I remember that this song was so epic, I actually felt as if I was in a desperate struggle with this beast and I continued to fight it over and over and over again until I had finally triumphed. I believe that I prefer most of the game's earlier music, but I generally feel that way about most games. Make sure and listen for the EPIC trumpet line too! Enjoy the song guys and feel free to comment!
