Game Music Lullabies album Prescription for Sleep coming soon

Sweet slumber comes with game music, I've found. I've always had sleeping soundtracks to listen to when I'm traveling or just need to chill out. I love to sleep to orchestral JRPGs, arranged albums, and 16-bit classics, and I...

Theatrhythm Final Fantasy Curtain Call announced for North America photo
Theatrhythm Final Fantasy Curtain Call announced for North America
by Dale North

Square Enix's follow-up to Theathrythm Final Fantasy has finally been confirmed for release in North America. That's right: Theathrythm Final Fantasy Curtain Call is coming our way sometime this year, priced at $39.99.

We saw this bigger, better version of Theathythm at Tokyo Game Show last year, and have been hoping for its western release ever since. It's so good! Its 221 awesome songs and 60 playable characters cover all things Final Fantasy, from Final Fantasy Tactics to Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII.

And as for new characters, Ramza, Zack, Yuna, Barret and others show their little tiny faces.

It's not just new songs and characters, though. A new Versus Battle mode lets you go up against friends, and a Quest Medley mode lets you pick your own routes through quests of different lengths. A new Collecta Crystarium system lets you collect cards by winning battles to boost character stats.

I'm so, so ready. Are you?

What was your favorite Marty O'Donnell song? photo
What was your favorite Marty O'Donnell song?
by Hamza CTZ Aziz

As we learned this past week, Marty O'Donnell is no longer with Bungie after nearly two decades at the company. His music is iconic in this industry, and the Halo series owes a part of it's infamy thanks to what he did on that series without a doubt.

While I think Marty will find work again easily if he wants it (maybe go to 343 and make the Halo music good again?), I did want to take this moment to reflect on his career at Bungie. Specifically the Halo series as the music he created for it has been some of my favorite for any game franchise out there.

The one that left the biggest impact on me was the Halo 3: ODST soundtrack. From the haunting saxophones of "Overture," to the feelings of defying the odds with "Special Delivery," ODST's original score has been one of the handful gaming soundtracks to actually move me to tears. Proper credit to Michael Salvatori who worked on this album as well.

So what was your favorite song/album/piece that Marty O'Donnell worked on while at Bungie, or otherwise. Did you know he made the Flintstones vitamin song? That was a good one too. Man remember when the Flintstones were cool?

Music-making game Cosmic DJ has a corgi in it!
by Dale North

This past weekend, I found myself running through the crowds of the PAX East show floor, pushing people out of the way to get to the Indie Megabooth, where Cosmic DJ was waiting for me. As a musician and a fan of music games I would have sought it out anyway. But I found out via Twitter that the game features a corgi, so I took off running.

Addiction allegory Spate's soundtrack is available now

Spate made a bit of a stir with its release last month, if not for its attempt to tackle themes more mature than shooting bullets at beefy dudes, then for its dated representation of absinthe as it exists and is understood to...

Silent Horror soundtrack is back from the dead and ready to download photo
Silent Horror soundtrack is back from the dead and ready to download
by Darren Nakamura

Back in 2005, a small team made Silent Horror, an independent film homage to survival horror, with obvious nods to the legendary Silent Hill franchise. Before he was Destructoid's Editor-in-Chief, Dale North composed the soundtrack for the film, and almost ten years later, it has finally been made widely available to the public.

Since we have the hookup, we are able to offer the Silent Horror Main Theme for free on our SoundCloud. Stream or download it there, or just listen to it below. If you want to hear more, head over to the soundtrack's Bandcamp or Loudr pages. It should provide you with a spooky soundtrack suitable for your day today.
