The Dustforce soundtrack is finally coming to vinyl

It was bound to happen sooner or later. I've been giving shout-outs to vinyl releases as they pop up and, at last, iam8bit is putting the wonderful Dustforce soundtrack by Lifeformed on vinyl. Hot damn! Pre-orders opened this morning ahead ...   read

Amplitude set to release on January 5 for PS4

It has been a bit of a wait for Amplitude, Harmonix's 2014 Kickstarter success. It was originally slated for release in March of 2015, but was pushed back a few times to January of 2016. Still, a year is nothing if you consider the last gam...   read

Chiptune musicians release album on Famicom

We've seen new releases for the Sega Dreamcast come to fruition in the past few years, but a brand new Famicom cartridge is an even more potent throwback. 8-Bit Music Power is a chiptune music compilation from Japanese artist RIKI and games...   read

Oh my gosh, this Fez vinyl!

I was checked out for the day when I saw this vinyl set for Fez, or so I thought. It's so dang good! Disasterpeace is one of my favorite musicians working in games right now, and the Fez soundtrack is among his best work, easily. To have it...   read

This Hotline Miami sale supports the musicians

The music for Hotline Miami has stuck with me like few other video game soundtracks. Carpenter Brut, M|O|O|N, Perturbator, and Magic Sword all in one brutal, high-octane place. It's exceptional. While the games have been discounted numerous...   read

Transistor now available on the Apple TV

The Apple TV hasn't exactly set the world of gaming on fire, but with the recent release of Transistor to the platform, I'm officially more interested in it than ever. Like 1% interested, but still. This version of the game has been designe...   read

Someone recreated the piano scene from Big in Fallout 4

Settlement building in Fallout 4 isn't as user friendly or refined as it should be (I'd like my garden of melons to not float three feet off the ground, if at all possible), but that isn't going to hold people back from making impressive th...   read

Harmonix just released a music-powered virtual pet called BeatNiks

Harmonix sure has diversified in the past five years. Sure, the studio just released Rock Band 4 and it focuses on interacting with music in all of its games, but with stuff like Chroma and A City Sleeps, it has gone further than just "hit ...   read

PlayStation 4 enabling DJs with Avicii music rhythm game Vector

In 2015, 1 out of 3 humans are DJs. This has led to global gridlock as necessary goods and services plummet under insistence that, "you should come see my set." The population rate is in decline, too, as more men become DJs; while a small ...   read
