The Ultimate Talking the Women about Videogames album 3!

4:00 PM on 03.04.2012 // Jonathan Holmes

[Talking to Women about Videogames is a series where Jonathan Holmes talks to different people who are women about the biggest videogame news of the week for some reason.]

As a horny old blind man once said "Just when I thought I was out, they pull me back in". I was so sure that I was finally done with the Talking to Women about Videogames album, but when the lovely and talented Chainsaw (composer on such modern classics as Ms 'Splosion Man and The Maw) asked if he could contribute a song to the thing, I could not say no. Chainsaw is joined by other game music all-stars such as Matt Harwood (Bit.Trip, Homefront), DannyB (Super Meat Boy, The Binding of Isaac), Souleye (VVVVVV), Jesse Hopkins (Gratuitous Space Battles, Mount and Blade) and Dale North (Dtoid Editor-in-Chief, The One Ups), making this album one of the biggest game composer crossovers of all time. I still can't believe all these highly talented people were willing to contribute to my weird projects. I don't deserve you, dudes. Seriously.

Once again, the album has seen some incredible contributions from the Dtoid community, including this infectiously catchy re-imagining of the Sup Holmes theme (by LolShin), a kick to the balls version of the same song (by Torzelan), and even a song about talking to me about videogames (by Carnivorous Forrest). I also added about 7 new tracks to the album myself to make sure that Chainsaw's debut here had all the support I could give it. These tracks include tributes to songs of my youth, a cover of a Bee Gees classic, a song created with the cat toy from the original Rhythm Tengoku, and much more. They are mostly dumb, but I put my whole heart into them all the same.

The album is up to 46 tracks now (including the 6 secret tracks)! To celebrate all this new content, The album will go on sale for $.99 starting today. The sale will last for a week, unless it's really successful. Then maybe I'll do something else. Thanks again to everyone who contributed! You put the magic in my magic stick. I love you forever.

Why don't we have more games that use filtered 3D models to creat faux-pixel art? It's such a cool, smooth style, but you never see any games using it.

Oh lawd. Next Saturday, Gamestop will have three hour access to Tri-Force Heroes. Nintendo, really wish we could just get normal demos from you more often, please!

Star Wars Battlefront is pretty good. Except the beta is basically a demo with nothing in it so that upsets me. but it's still pretty good.

Just cleaning up the last of Gotham's Most Wanted before I finish Arkham Knight. Those Riddler trophies...much more fun than Arkham City but my word, stop it Rocksteady. Love the game though, outstanding. In my top 5 this year, fo sho.

Looks like my copy of Chibi-Robo: Zip Lash won't be here till Tuesday. What do I pay for Amazon Prime for again? I think I might have to stream me playing it.

I have just heard someone say Uncharted was a "role playing game."

The glitched walking animation people carrying crates in Novigrad do is hilarious.

Undecided what to do with my weekend now my fiancée is away. One part of me says I should work my ass off, another says I should go watch The Martian while the last part tells me to be a slob, play games and masturbate to Highschool DXD.. Such a hard lif

The 1.10 patch for The Witcher 3 is out. Downloading for PS4. Pretty excited to see the changes, especially since it said the damn swamps in Velen would finally see performance enhancements, along with like a million other areas. So good! Yes?

Just got confirmation that a feature I spent way too long writing is going up on Sunday. Not a bad way to start the weekend off, though I wish I had a slot on a weekday.

PB&J sandwiches. Saturday morning cartoons. A blanket. Ominous sounds coming from the next room. Blood seeping from the walls. A dark figure standing in the corner, staring, watching. Darkness, everywhere. Such darkness. This is childhood.

Spiel was mightily expensive. Holy shit... Good thing I didn't bring more money with me, too. Saw enough stuff I'd love to own.

Trialling PS Now - review to come later - has reminded me of a piece of little-reported PS3 news. Owners of hacked PS3s could turn any PS2 game into a 'Classics' title and run them on a bog-standard PS3 with few issues.
