Rock legend and actor David Bowie has passed away

Beloved actor and singer/songwriter David Bowie passed away last night in his home in New York City after a bout with cancer. Like many multimedia icons before him, you don't necessarily immediately associate video games with Bowie, but his...

 
Review: Chiptune Champion
I love chiptune music and I love music and rhythm games, so of course I had to play Chiptune Champion, which combines them both.  It might not be perfect, and it might not be much to look at it, but it has its charm.    read

Crush 40 let slip a 25th anniversary Sonic game is in the works

Jeez, it’s already been almost five years since the great Sonic Generations was released to celebrate the Blue Blur’s 20th anniversary. With the series’ 25th birthday rapidly approaching later this year, people have been w...

 
Deck my Pokeballs
Happy holidays, HAPPY HOLIDAYS!  It is that time of year when you annoy entertain your family, friends, neighbors, co-workers, and unsuspecting opponents on Xbox Live with your holiday music. As a professional at annoying entertaining, I figured I'd gift you this virtual mixtape of my favorite ditties to liven up the mood wherever you are.   read

Damn, look at Seymour shred Splatoon tunes on his guitar

Splatoon's music was love at first listen. Last year, Nintendo initially drew me to its then-unknown game about squidkids thanks in large part to the kickass theme song. It's now nearly 2016, and I'm not even close to tired of hearing that ...

Napster is coming to Wii U

Holy '90s, Batman. Nintendo has announced that Napster, the now-legitimate streaming music service, will be coming to the Wii U eShop as a free app on December 17. A 30-day free trial is available, but after that, you'll have to fork over a...

The Dustforce soundtrack is finally coming to vinyl

It was bound to happen sooner or later. I've been giving shout-outs to vinyl releases as they pop up and, at last, iam8bit is putting the wonderful Dustforce soundtrack by Lifeformed on vinyl. Hot damn! Pre-orders opened this morning ahead ...

Amplitude set to release on January 5 for PS4

It has been a bit of a wait for Amplitude, Harmonix's 2014 Kickstarter success. It was originally slated for release in March of 2015, but was pushed back a few times to January of 2016. Still, a year is nothing if you consider the last gam...

Chiptune musicians release album on Famicom

We've seen new releases for the Sega Dreamcast come to fruition in the past few years, but a brand new Famicom cartridge is an even more potent throwback. 8-Bit Music Power is a chiptune music compilation from Japanese artist RIKI and games...

Oh my gosh, this Fez vinyl!

I was checked out for the day when I saw this vinyl set for Fez, or so I thought. It's so dang good! Disasterpeace is one of my favorite musicians working in games right now, and the Fez soundtrack is among his best work, easily. To have it...

This Hotline Miami sale supports the musicians

The music for Hotline Miami has stuck with me like few other video game soundtracks. Carpenter Brut, M|O|O|N, Perturbator, and Magic Sword all in one brutal, high-octane place. It's exceptional. While the games have been discounted numerous...

Transistor now available on the Apple TV

The Apple TV hasn't exactly set the world of gaming on fire, but with the recent release of Transistor to the platform, I'm officially more interested in it than ever. Like 1% interested, but still. This version of the game has been designe...

Someone recreated the piano scene from Big in Fallout 4

Settlement building in Fallout 4 isn't as user friendly or refined as it should be (I'd like my garden of melons to not float three feet off the ground, if at all possible), but that isn't going to hold people back from making impressive th...

Nobuo Uematsu, the beloved composer of Final Fantasy VII (and the most titles in the series), will not be contributing to the soundtrack for Square Enix's upcoming Final Fantasy VII remake. While speaking with French outlet JeuxVideo, ...

Harmonix just released a music-powered virtual pet called BeatNiks

Harmonix sure has diversified in the past five years. Sure, the studio just released Rock Band 4 and it focuses on interacting with music in all of its games, but with stuff like Chroma and A City Sleeps, it has gone further than just "hit ...

Rise of the Tomb Raider launch trailer features an original song by Karen O

Rise of the Tomb Raider is just a couple weeks from launch (for the Xbox One at least), so naturally we can expect a launch trailer to keep the hype train rolling. This one comes with an extra tidbit of news, past the new bits of story reve...

PlayStation 4 enabling DJs with Avicii music rhythm game Vector

In 2015, 1 out of 3 humans are DJs. This has led to global gridlock as necessary goods and services plummet under insistence that, "you should come see my set." The population rate is in decline, too, as more men become DJs; while a small ...

Lately, my background noise of choice for work has been the ocean. There are enough recordings available that you can afford to get real picky, real fast. I like the sound of distant waves crashing, not that distracting up-close sloshing. T...

Yoshi's Woolly World is such a happy game

I'm about halfway through Yoshi's Woolly World and I am so grateful to have a dedicated co-op partner. There's this intoxicating contrast between the cute, handcrafted aesthetic and our innate desire to screw one another over as much as pos...

Final Fantasy VII remix album Materia is bigger than the original soundtrack

Check out that preview below. Longtime Destructoid fans might find it familiar for a couple reasons. For one, Final Fantasy VII's main theme is one of the most recognizable pieces from the old role-playing game. It played in the overworld, ...

'You Wouldn't Know' is the third Portal song by Jonathan Coulton

The reveal of LEGO Dimensions earlier this year was kind of bizarre. How can Traveller's Tales get all those different licenses? Jurassic Park, Scooby Doo, Batman, and Portal 2? It's like every kid's toy chest in video game form. It turns o...

Fallout 4 has a familiar theme song
