RPGFan Soundtracks Update
I used to post updates on time, until I took an arrow to the knee!
02.23.12 - 12:12 AM

Good evening to you all, and welcome to your regularly scheduled but somewhat delinquent soundtracks update! Today's update is all about the PC RPGs (although technically all four of the games represented can be found on consoles, too!). Tonight's update is especially replete with the music of the The Elder Scrolls series: if you like Jeremy Soule, you will be happy.

First, I have the pleasure of presenting my fellow podcaster Robert Steinman's first soundtrack review, representing a game that both of us hold near and dear to our hearts: the Diablo 15th Anniversary CD, featuring tracks from the original, Diablo II, and unused tracks from the upcoming (at some point) Diablo III! This disc isn't exactly easy to get your hands on, so be sure to check out Rob's review!

Next, we have a glut of Elder Scrolls content, with Patrick Gann's reviews of both Morrowind and Oblivion's full soundtracks, as well as our big double header for the week: Robert Steinman and Kyle E. Miller's reviews of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim's massive four-disc soundtrack. I was a big fan of this soundtrack, but be sure to take a look at what Rob and Kyle had to say!

The coming weeks hold a lot more JRPG music coverage, so if that's more your cup of tea, be sure to keep an eye out. However, if you're a fan of massive trilogies with upcoming finales that are based in space and star Commander Shepard, I'd definitely recommend sticking around for our next update, because you just might like it! Thanks again for reading, and my apologies for the delay in this week's update!

(Oh, and don't forget to check back this weekend for our Soundtracks Spotlight-- it highlights one of the best albums ever made!)
