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...   read

Harmonix's Music VR might make for a great new way to listen to music

Listening to music is one of my favorite activities in this world. Not hearing music, but listening to music. Giving music my full, undivided attention. I'll often sit on my bedroom floor with my back against the bed, close my eyes, and lis...   read

Even Babymetal is teaming up with Mario Maker

The metal idol group Babymetal is coming to Super Mario Maker as a character costume, which is something I should probably find strange, but don't -- not after the pigeon, Barbara the Bat, and Chitoge Kirisaki. Nintendo has gone to unexpec...   read

Anamanaguchi's new music lies hidden within Capsule Silence XXIV

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

Supergiant releases stylish Transistor vinyl and updates digital OST

The soundtrack for Transistor contains some of the coolest, chillest, sit-in-a-dark-room-and-vibe tracks I've ever heard from a video game. So while I normally don't think much of premium vinyl editions, I'm pretty curious about this one. S...   read
