How nice: GOG.com adds 31 FLAC soundtracks

One of my favorite features of GOG.com is its inclusion of bonuses at no additional charge, particularly when it comes to the "good old games," which these days isn't the sole focus of the distributor. Extras can range from r...

Travel to Gerudo Valley with this awesome violin cover

Okay, Taylor Davis is officially a badass. Late last year we saw her dressed as Sheik and playing a couple of the ocarina songs from The Legend of Zelda: The Ocarina of Time. She took the simple melodies and transformed them...

You can buy Broken Age's soundtrack bundled with the game

Maybe you didn't back Double Fine's famous Broken Age Kickstarter because it had already made more money than you're ever going to make in your life. That's okay. Assuming you still want to play it -- why wouldn't you? -- it...

Look at Lightning's many outfits in our music video photo
Look at Lightning's many outfits in our music video
by Dale North

Yesterday, while working on our preview of Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII, I asked those in the office if I should make some kind of quick video to show off some of the costumes I've collected in the game. Everyone insisted that I should, so I did.

I also asked if I should put together a quick song to go with the video, and I found that Hamza was more than willing to share his lyrical ideas. All of his lines were pure gold, but not all of them fit with the song I wanted to do. I really wished I could have used "I wanna ogle your moogle," for example.

The only line I kept was his best one: "You J-poppin' my heart with those threads, girl."

The rest of the lyrics (as well as the lead vocals, background vocals, and instrumental parts) are all me in this cover of the Final Fantasy XIII main theme.

Sorry for this.

The best PC desktop speakers we found at CES 2014

PC desktop speakers usually suck. Most of the ones you see in electronics stores center around a particle board subwoofer and satellite speakers that remind me (and sometimes sound like) the cups with string tied to them that...
