You can't forget about Yuzo Koshiro in a composer thread. 

Ever since I played Streets of Rage when I was a wee lad, this song has been stuck in my head.  It's still stuck in my head.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jPgv7xXbY4g

YES! That was one of my favorites in the 16 bit days. Nothing could touch the soundtrack of the first sonic though.
Yeah, I always liked the music in the Sonic games. It just fit so perfectly. Heck, I even liked the Isometric Sonic on the Saturn. It had a great soundtrack.
Listen:

Awesome, huh?

YES YES YES! God, I freaking loved that song when I first played the game, and it's still great today. Good call on Yuzo, Din.
Actraiser had some amazing music.

I bought Mad World a few weeks ago because it was only $9 on Amazon. I decided to try it out last night.
This game is frickin' crazy. I was having a blast beating the crap out of everything. I even don't mind the hip hop music, as it seems to fit with the game.  I dare say the best part of this is the announcers. Holy shit, they are hilarious. And crude as all get out.
I don't like that there is no difficulty settings. I know I won't get far, but I didn't plan on playing this very long anyway. A nice diversion, though.

I was hoping you would respond, Pat.
You have to admit that music in games isn't like it used to be. Stuff like God of war III is decent, but not really listenable outside of the game.
I see you listed several DS games. I just can't get myself to use the thing. I've looked at the Etrian games before , but have yet to buy one, because I know I would abandon it for the next flashy console game.
I've got both FFXIII and Lost Odyssey but have only played the first hour of each.
Anyone know how the music is in the new Ys games coming out? I still listen to my Ys I & II soundtrack on a routine basis. Slaughters most anything that's ever come afterwords.
It seems to me that while there's been so many improvements in gaming, music has gone downhill. Sad.

Big surprise. Deathspank is boring me. I guess I just don't do silly. The gameplay is kinda fun, and I've chuckled a couple times, but I just can't get in to it. Plus, the music is atrocious.
Perhaos it's time to invest in one of those games that passed me by. Or go back to InFamous(eh). Or actually play FFXIII(daunting).
hmph
2091  Media / The Soundroom / Best current generation sountracks on: August 13, 2010, 11:23:25 AM
All the raving I've been hearing about Niers music inspired this post. I have yet to play the game, but the music is the #1 reason why I want to.
This music in this game is a big deal because of how rare great soundtracks are nowadays. So many developers are going with more dynamic type soundtracks. Personally, I miss having a single track playing over a level or an area. There's way too much silence in games now. I get what they are trying to do, but it seems to have resulted in a lack of great soundtracks.
So...
I made this thread so we can talk about the games that actually DO have great music. Perhaps I'm missing a whole bunch of great soundtracks, and just didn't know it.
A few I've enjoyed:
Mass Effect 1/2 - There's some really great 80's sci-fi-like music in these.
Uncharted - I really liked the main theme.
Braid - Wonderful (licensed)music here.

I can't remember the last time I was genuinely blown away by a game with great music. I want to have those tunes in my head all day long. This just doesn't happen anymore. Last time it did was maybe Okami or Lament of Innocence. It's been too long.

Fired up uncharted 2 to do a bit more progress on my crushing playthrough and though its been almost a year the game's visuals still amaze me, the game looks unreal every step of the way.
Also doing NG+ on demon's souls and dare I say it, it's even harder than the first time.

Grimreality, I agree with the environment variety issue but I don't see how the game is any more repetitive than any other action game out there. Hell, compared to something like uncharted or gears of war there are actually a lot more options in the way you can approach any given situation because of the variety of powers at your disposal and freedom of movement.
I was just about to say that I am waiting for a price drop for Uncharted 2 but now I see Amazon has it for 36.99. SO tempting. Metroids coming in a few weeks, though.
as for InFamous...
I was trying not to be too negative, as I was enjoying the game for awhile, but I have other problems, too. The reapers are horribly boring enemies. Very little variety, and the design is lame. Plus, they all have ridiculously good aim, even from 3 buildings over. Damn annoying.
I played through the entire first area. The side quests got very repetitive. Most we're just me killing growling guys in red capes.
There is very little music in the game. This bothers me, as I am a big fan of great game music.
You compared it to Gears of War and Uncharted, both of which I loved. Those games had structure, narrative, great music, etc. WAY better than InFamous.
Perhaps the sandboxy type games just aren't my thing.



Man, the game is dirt cheap here in europe, you guys need to get this game, I mean, really.

As for infamous, the sniping is a common complaint. The city is divided into 3 parts and enemies are very different in each. I guess you didn't get that far. As for the story, it gets more interesting towards the end, you should give it a chance. I'm not saying it's as good as uncharted or gears. I didnt have the patience to do a lot of missions, you shouldn't bother either. I recently played nier and had the same problem, doing all the missions can break the pace of a game and make you loose interest, just follow the narrative, it's a good advice for both games. Just do a few to see what they are about or else you'll find yourself doing the same thing over and over.
Not to continue the thread hijack, but...
I did every single side mission in the first area. I can't see all those dots on the screen and NOT do them. I'd feel guilty. Perhaps that's why I'm burnt out already.
I like Cole a lot, as cliche as his character is, and I am curious as to where the story will go. We'll see...

Deathspank - I'm having fun with it so far, but a few things bother me. The music is boring and repetitive. I understand that it's a humorous game, and they wanted music to match, but it pretty much sucks. Plus, I still don't like DS's voice. It's just too over the top.

BTW, I stopped playing InFamous because it felt like I was just doing the same thing over and over again. Plus, the graphics never seemed to change much. It needed more variety with the environments.
2095  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Facts About You! on: August 08, 2010, 10:51:48 PM
Another vote for the skull. Do it, Nuri!
Then again, I have a shelf full of weird stuff in my office at work:
A lego raptor
a wind up robot pencil sharpener
a dried up hedge apple
a little rubber snake
a gargoyle egg
a little rubber lizard that sits on the gargoyle egg
a resin coffin with a grim reaper on the top. It opens up!

I also take my lunch to work in a Transformers lunch bag.
Obviously, I am WAY cooler than anyone else who works there.

I own a Barbarian sword and shield that are hanging on my living room wall. My wife bought them for me for Christmas awhile back. Yes, she's THAT cool.

I have a collection of 12 Lenox castle replicas based on real castles from throughout the world. They are cool, but there's no way I would buy them nowadays. Guess I had money to blow back then.






2096  Media / Brush and Quill / Re: Fantasy Sucks on: August 08, 2010, 10:33:54 PM
I'm telling myself that I will finish the third book and then call it quits on the series. I'm pretty sure there's 2 or 3 more of these out there, but it just refuses to get better.
I keep reading with the hope that they will suddenly turn into what they could have been in my head.
Yes, Neal, I DO feel like a quitter. Especially when so many other people seem to be enjoying them.
I know these have been optioned for movies. Hopefully the producers will be given a bit of leeway with the license, because I can see some really kick ass movies coming out of this dreck. We'll see.
2097  Media / Brush and Quill / Re: Fantasy Sucks on: August 07, 2010, 01:15:36 PM
speaking of dragons...
and fantasy sucking...
I am on the third Temeraire book and I have no idea why. They are not good at all. A great premise ruined by crappy writing, pacing, and all sorts of ridiculousness.
Plus, the dragons have been too humanized. Temeraire gets a cold. WTF?!
I recommend staying away from these. 
2098  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Super RPGFan Game Journal IV - The New Warriors: The Revenge The Movie The Game on: August 06, 2010, 09:07:55 AM
downloaded Deathspank for the 360 last night. Played for about an hour. I am bothered by the lack of a jump button. I like to jump, dammit!
I like the graphic style.
The voice acting is good, but DS's voice is really kind of annoying. I know it's a play on hero characters, but I still don't like it.
You have four weapons to choose from but there doesn't seem to be a reason to use any more than 2. One for melee, and one for ranged.
It's fun enough, if a bit simple. Just whack the hell out of everything. This may get tiresome. We'll see.
2099  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Facts About You! on: August 05, 2010, 07:50:39 PM
We recently implemented "Meatless Mondays" in our house in an effort to wean ourselves off of eating meat with every meal. I like it because I am forced to be creative and try new things. I could cheat and make grilled cheese or pasta, but my wife bought some vegetarian cookbooks. I've now ingested such things as Zucchini lasagna and Kuku.
I plan on trying some of those Indian dishes Neal talked about in another thread. They sounded delicious.
2100  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Nier on: August 05, 2010, 09:56:23 AM
I think I've decided to get this game. Are there any differences between the 360 and PS3 versions? I'd probably get the PS3 one simply because I have more room on the hard drive.
