As a total sucker for all things behind the scenes, the new Revision3 series Good Job is right up my alley. In its debut episode, Mauricio Balvanera goes to Wabi Sabi Sound to see what it takes to create the freakish sound effects for a Necromorph in Dead Space 2. And there's even a bit of FarmVille -- y'know, for balance.
While this is only a brief look at one admittedly huge sector of the gaming industry, it should be enough to capture your interest in a field that doesn't always get a whole lot of our attention. Sound design has always seemed like a form of mysterious black magic to me, so I found this to be an informative episode.
