Exclusive: A taste of the Tales of the Elements soundtrack

I got an unusual e-mail a few days ago. I'm not especially well versed in the subject matter, but I found it interesting, and hopefully you will too. Some of you might remember Jayson Napolitano, who used to run the "Note Worthy" and "The S...

Come hear the No Man's Sky soundtrack

When I saw a link to this YouTube upload of the No Man's Sky soundtrack, I had the realization that despite the numerous gameplay videos I had seen of the sci-fi title these past few years, I somehow couldn't recall what its music sounded ...

The soundtrack of my gaming life

I have a deep love of ritual. Like my caveman ancestors before me (who would rally around a stone obelisk, or a collection of goat skulls, and dance to the pounding beat of skin drums), I have my own profane customs. Nothing puts me more i...

Pin back your lugholes, here's the Quantum Break soundtrack

Microsoft has released the Quantum Break soundtrack for free on Soundcloud, and it’s surprisingly great. Big budget games have a habit of thinking big games should have big scores with lots of instruments, but then fail to give them t...

All the character themes in SFV

The Taken King is getting a soundtrack release next week

Those of you who listen to the Destructoid UK podcast will likely already know I'm not a huge fan of Destiny. Don't get me wrong; it's a good game, it's just not for me. That said, the soundtrack in Destiny is something I can't deny the bri...

Review: Party Hard

“I get wet when I know that you're dying,” sang Andrew W.K. on his debut album closer, I Get Wet. It’s actually a fine anthem for the terrible things you get away with in Party Hard, far more than the phenomenal singl...

Guitar Hero Live adds 10 more songs I don't know

I have willfully ignored Guitar Hero Live until now. I will go back to that after I finish informing you of the 10 songs newly confirmed for the game (?), none of which I recognize by name, but a few of which I have assuredly heard before. ...
