Shadows of the Damned

Shadows of the Damned's damn good soundtrack for sale

4:00 AM on 09.06.2011 // Liam Fisher

Akira Yamaoka is kind of a genius and he's definitely earned a place in the videogame music pantheon after his work on the Silent Hill series and Shadows of the Damned. Thankfully, the latter is getting an official soundtrack release. Rather than just release a collection of the game's tunes, however, Yamaoka made it his goal to "create an experience that would take players back to the game as if they were "watching" a movie."

The release is limited to 1000 prints with 300 copies allotted for international customers. Those 300 international copies will be autographed by Yamaoka himself as a special thank you. You can find the soundtrack at Grasshopper Manufacture's online store now for $29.93 plus shipping. It's a steep price for sure, but with about 190 copies left you may not want to deliberate too long.

It's also worth mentioning that the game's official art book Kurayami, from Q-Hayashida, will be going on sale this Friday, September 9. The book contains both finalized and conceptual art alike, as well as a "Damned manga" and the Japanese text of a conversation between Suda-51 and Q-Hayashida. Normally, I don't jump at art books, but Shadows' style is way too good.

Pathologic Classic HD just got announced and holy crap am I excited. If you haven't played the game, keep your eyes on this one. It's the very definition of an underrated title. Though I'm not sure what'll happen to the remake that was being shown...

My opinion on Tomba has changed, now I dig it again. Stay tuned for updates.

MGO is a blast and after playing for a few hours as each class, I'm glad I stuck with Infiltrator.

So assuming the terrible blog tools functions correctly, soon there may be a nefarious call to arms. So keep an eye out and hope there isn't a typo due to light-grey on white background text.

MGO's pretty fun! I suck at it though. I mostly hang back and just mark enemies and get the occasional sniper kill. It's pretty fun to be semi-useful with a very hands off role like that. Love my avatar character guy too.

Rock Band 4 is really fun...takes me back to my teenage days of high school. Also reminds me of all the hours I wasted on a plastic guitar instead of getting better on a real one xD

N-Not that P1 isn't perfect the way she is! Isn't that right sweetie? Yes it... Oh, now don't you go and listen to those P2 fans! They just go around spreading rumors and pretending Hitler was just a handsome gentleman in sunglasses, that's what THEY do!

Persona Q has made me realize I really want a Persona 1 remake on 3DS in a similar style. A lot. A loooooooot. You listening, Atlus?
Super Mario Maker, the announcement of Sonic Lost World for Steam, and remembering all of the mods that got made for the PC version of Sonic Generations makes me wish SEGA/Sonic Team would make their own dedicated Sonic level creation game.

Hey, is your fridge running? You better catch it. I mean, it has all your food, and without food, you die. Like, forever. You don't wanna die right? If you die, how will you watch The Good wife with your favourite bowl of Ben and Jerry's ice cream? Go.
