    Ah yes, that traditional Japanese instrument, the electric guitar... :lol: (I like it anyway.)

    My favorite musical instrument is the air-raid siren.

    Activision-Blizzard: "We're a multi-billion dollar company and our idea of writing elven language music in Warcraft is to have the lyrics just repeat names and phrases we've heard for like 20 years."

    Nier Automata Team: "We're going to write a fictional language for the lyrics of our songs."


    Nobody likes me but that's okay. I'm used to it.

    "This cannot continue" is english tho.

    Also, western AAA video game music sucks and is boring as shit.

    Speaking of Nier, I really love how the original game's soundtrack was composed. Every track was composed in several layers (say, 2 or 3 instrumental layers, a percussion layer, a vocal layer, etc). Each zone would only have 1 theme, but different layers would be pulled in and out dynamically to fit the situation. For instance, instead of having combat music, the percussion layer would get pulled in. Instead of having a separate piece for emotional scenes, everything would fade out but the vocals. Because all the layers were a part of the same song, this could be done at any time, from any set of layers to any other, all without transitions.

    the NMS OST is fuckin fantastic, it's AAA enough IMO, that's a full playlist uploaded by the band who created it
    acronyms





    For real Bethesda and their assorted studios have put out some of my favorite video game music in years

    I'll agree to Bethesda music doing a pretty good job on setting the mood and such. See: Oblivion.



    Shout outs to Auriel's Ascension. Like holy shit that track.

    I will agree that Bethesda is the exception in regards to my AAA music is bad take. I don't really like to plug Elder Scrolls though, because the composer is gross.

    Prey does have a killer soundtrack. I wish the composer did an entire album of music like the helicopter ride music from the beginning of the game. I really dig how that piece was a bait-and-switch musically that mirrored the bait-and-switch of the plot.

    Been playing Ikenfell, a magic school RPG that has some of the Steven Universe composers on for the soundtrack:






    It's real good.

    I also really dig the art style / character designs there.

    The game itself is pixel art, but they do it well and have a very diverse cast.

    I have to say, I played through the entirety of Prey and enjoyed it and if you told me the game had no music I would believe you. It made no impression on me whatsoever for some reason.

    Steam ID: Right here.

    I think that it has to do with the soundtrack being primarily atmospheric. The soundtrack is by all accounts good, it just doesn't leave an impression. That is a complaint I have about many western style soundtracks. Mass Effect and Assassin's Creed are both good examples; they have great memorable pieces like Ezio's Family and the galaxy map theme, but are otherwise unremarkable.

    The Solitaire Conspiracy, which came out a couple of weeks ago, has a nifty dynamic soundtrack (by Jon Everist, channeling the style of Hans Zimmer or techno-thriller soundtracks like Tom Clancy movies, etc) that speeds up as you get closer to completing the solitaire game. I have to admit, it's pretty fun when you realize you're closing in on the end of the puzzle and the soundtrack starts going like you're in a car chase gunfight through the streets of Vienna or whatever.

    What a curious premise for a game. What's the gameplay like? Fun?

  • BahamutZEROBahamutZERO Registered User regular
    I am told it is a very easy version of solitaire and the presentation is the only notable thing about it but ymmv
