The Reno Video Game Symphony Jazz Band!

Yesterday, the Reno Video Game Symphony performed a concert. As director, I have overseen the members of this group spontaneously create new ensembles before, but it is always magical to see how quickly and efficiently veteran and noob mus...

 
 
 

Game Audio - Marble Madness

Why have I been thinking about Marble Madness so much lately, you ask? Maybe it's the recent video from the Game Developers Conference by Mark Cerny, the creator of Marble Madness. Maybe it's my desire to find new music to arrange for t...

 
 
 

6 Things You Don't Know About This Guy

I have been a big fan of Destructoid for a while, and I've posted a few cod-brained blogs here and there, but it's about time you (you) and I (me) were introduced. Because I've enjoyed these types of introductions so much, I figure it's t...

 
 
 

Spooky Death Ship 3000

Man, just finished playing this game and is it ever great. It's probably one of the best looking games ever and the graphics are great too. The thing with the health thingy is cool. Then there were violins and I was scared. I was sarcas...

 
 
 
 

Audio in Games - Brutal Legend

Can music be more persuasive to a player than gameplay? Hell yes it can. It took me a couple months after getting my PS3 to grab Brutal Legend, but before I had the ability to play the game, it was the game for me, and I had to have it. ...

 
 
 

AudioGaming- Oddworld:Abe's Odysee

LOVE dose #2

So I've played about 9 more hours of love since the last post I made, and I have now pretty well wrapped my head around the gameplay. This game is a bit unclear in communicating to the player what you're supposed to do, but fortunately, ...

 
 
 

LOVE alpha test diary.

If you aren't familiar with LOVE, it's an online game not quite massive enough to be considered a Massively Multiplayer Game like World of Warcraft. It's a novel new online game where you build settlements with other people, and occasion...

 
 
 

This is my sweet poster.

I made this poster out of sweat and blood, and a little urine. It is the sweetest thing in my apartment, if not only because I haven't bought a wii yet. It cost me $12 to make this, and as far as Ihas been reported, you don't have one. ...

 
 
 

A Game Called LOVE

I haven't played an MMO since Ultima Online, but I may just break my streak for a new game being made by a man named Eskil Steenberg. His Game is called LOVE, and it's an MMORPG which will have constantly changing worlds with servers that ...

 
 
 

Meteos, Music, Awesome.

I've been playing a ton of Meteos on my DS lately. It's a puzzle game that thoroughly employs the use of the DS stylus to create an extremely enjoyable, and emotionally responsive game. The game's audio is so wonderful that I almost hooke...

Music Games and their brood.

The first rhythm game I ever played was Parappa the Rappa, and ever since I played it, I have been craving rhythm in my gameplay. Most games have at least some rhythmic elements in their gameplay, You have to wait for the monster to attack...

In a recent report from the Fui Xianghui elite government polling office, the amount of video gaming taking place in the United States continues to rise, explaining the incredible inefficiency and depravity of Western Culture. Handsome a...

 
 
 

The Advantage is mighty.

While the NES Advantage is without a doubt the mightiest of all game controllers ever released, the band "The Advantage" more than lives up to it's glorious namesake. I've been learning to play Kraid's lair on the guitar, and I sorted it ...

 
 
 

AudioGaming- Thinking about Killer 7

Lately, I've been rolling over what it was that was so incredible about the audio in Killer 7. The game is deeply uncomforting in its visual style, with moments of often shockingly beautiful environments simultaneously presented with horre...

 
 

About snoogans775one of us since 2:19 AM on 07.06.2009

I'm a musician and a gamer. I also make music for games.

My favorite RPG ever is Earthbound, and my favorite song in that game is the final battle theme.
My favorite musicians are Mr. Bungle. Then Radiohead. Then Tom Waits. Jamiroquai.
I love tapioca and I hate creamed corn.
I like Taoism.
You can find my music if you google "Melodious Punk" because that's what I call myself when I'm making music.

You can catch me on PSN as snoogans775, I play Street Fighter III: Third Strike.
