The Sonic Mania soundtrack is killing it

Sega said it would share more full tracks from Sonic Mania soon, and here we are with the theme of the Hard-Boiled Heavies. I'm not sure this one tops Studiopolis for me, but I like its upbeat energy. No joke, these songs are getting me pu...

Kick off your weekend with this Sonic Mania jam

It's getting to be Friday night around here. Soon enough, that'll mean the rapid consumption of alcohol, a few rounds of Battlegrounds with my dudes, a lil EVO, and the horrible realization that I should've left 20 minutes ago to beat the ...

Nine Inch Nails has a cool new game-centric music video

Nine Inch Nails has an EP on the way, and if you know your Llamasoft (TxK, Space Giraffe, countless others), the music video for the new single "Less Than" should look awfully familiar. It's none other than Polybius, the urban-legend-inspi...

Attack on Titan Season 2's opening gets a chiptune remix

When it comes to people who create chiptunes based on theme songs from TV shows, Studio Megaane is one of the best. The thing that makes his stuff spectacular is that he tends to capture the magic behind the original tracks' quality. W...

This Quake vinyl could be the perfect drug

There was once a time when video game soundtracks weren't fully orchestrated or composed by rock musicians. Technology limited composers to MIDI tunes, so there wasn't a need to call in more "professional" acts to spruce up your game. ID So...

Rhythm game Voez gets 18 new songs on Nintendo Switch

Today's free update for Voez on Nintendo Switch serves as a nice reminder that hey, I should get this game soon -- definitely before I'm swept up in Arms and Cave Story+ and Splatoon 2. The touch-based rhythm title has gained 18 new songs o...

SoundCloud is the latest music streaming option on Xbox One

The music streaming service SoundCloud has come to Xbox One with a dedicated app. This might not be the coveted Spotify announcement you've been waiting for, but the app is free to use, with Cortana voice control, the ability to create pla...

Come hear the WipEout Omega Collection soundtrack

Seeing the WipEout name pop up again is bittersweet, but some WipEout is better than no WipEout. The remastered-for-PS4 Omega Collection is coming soon, containing WipEout HD, HD Fury, and 2048 with enhanced visuals. Prior to the June 6 lau...

This song is the heartfelt tribute Magikarp deserves

Last year, The Pokémon Company produced a Japanese song for Magikarp, "the pity Pokémon." Even without knowing the words, it was enjoyable (and by enjoyable, I mean distressing), but now we've got those too. The translated son...

Oh dang, Persona 5 is getting a vinyl set

The next vinyl from iam8bit is a big one: Persona 5! It's such a good candidate that I can see it pushing people into game vinyl ownership for the first time -- assuming they have the money. There will be two sets, both of which will ship i...

The composer of Jet Set Radio has new music for Hover

Two years ago, the future-set parkour game Hover: Revolt of Gamers rolled onto Steam Early Access, and to this day, it's still a work-in-progress on the platform. One of the things that put the project on my radar back when it was seeking K...

Action-RPG Shiness locked in for April 18 on PC and consoles

Joining the absurd list of games coming out soon is Shiness: The Lightning Kingdom, a pleasant-looking action-RPG with a combat system not unlike what you might find in an arena fighting game. Previously penciled in for a 2016 release, Shin...

Remember when Cam'ron rapped over 'One-Winged Angel'?

It'd be easy to assume that hip-hop and Japanese role-playing games share nothing in common. Both are acquired tastes within their respective industries that rarely intersect outside of the suburban bedrooms of nerdy white kids. But like ho...

Bloodstained shows off a pair of new enemies

For this month's backer update for Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night, designer IGA spoke with composer Michiru Yamane, whose music you'll know and surely dig from games like Castlevania: Symphony of the Night (yep, there it goes -- it's st...

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...
