Critical Strike

So this is our second Critical Music release this month but I've always kind of loved the horror genre of video games and the way they use music to screw with you or keep you on your toes. As I mentioned on the show, this release probably isn't for everyone but I hope you enjoy it anyway.

Music in this episode: Silent Hill 2, Splatterhouse 2, ObsCure, Clock Tower, Dracula: The Resurrection, Silent Hill 3, Legacy of Kain: Defiance, Castlevania, Dead Space, Parasite Eve, D2, Kuon, Siren 2, Haunting Ground, 7th Guest, Galerians: Ash, Vampire Night, Zombie Revenge.

After a brief break while Kyle moved and we both were slammed at work we once more return to the podcasting world with a new fresh way to find ways to make ourselves worse! Oh yes, now we watch each other while recording and it leads to some pretty interesting distractions but oh well, it was our first time with it! Here is what we discussed: Kyle moving, Demon's Souls, Uncharted 2, PSP Go, pinball games, Dead Space, Shadow Complex, Perfect Dark Zero, Motorstorm Arctic Edge.

Music in this episode: Bit.Trip Beat, Buckner & Garcia, Norrkoping Symphony Orchestra

Oh yes, it's that time again! Time for another monthly edition of Critical Music but this time it's probably a bit early, either way I'm sure you'll enjoy it! With this episode we go back and revisit our love for chiptunes and show off a few more excellent artists in this growing music genre. Since this Critical Music is a bit early and since I'm sick, there just may end up being two this month!

Artists in this episode: minusbaby, Monsters, arcadecoma, Cornbeast, UnicornDreamAttack, giveupnewyork, YMCK, Sabastian Boaz, smiletron, Lada Laika, Mizuki's Last Chance, goatslacker, Nullsleep, Random, Darklime, FearofDark, Dr. Szliszka
