American Pixels pays tribute to American game music

Mention a "video game music tribute album" and the first thing that usually comes to mind is a tribute to an old-school Japanese franchise, like The Legend of Zelda, Chrono Trigger, or Final Fantasy. Y'know games that working composers in t...

Ariana Grande is so into Final Fantasy: Brave Exvius

I always find it strange when there are celebrity cameos in video games. I'm not talking about something like the zaniness of Keith David being in Saints Row as Keith David (...after having voiced Julius in the first two games), but more li...

Weird Al closing out BlizzCon

Weird Al Yankovic is pretty important to me. I'm old enough to remember listening to Weird Al on the radio, Sunday nights on the Dr. Demento Show. Even before that, I would trade cassette tapes with kids at school trying to collect all of A...
