Video Mondaily – Dance with your Dead

Hey folks! Remember us? Well we are not actually dead, despite our most recent post  being well over a week ago and having only posted three times across January. What can I say, we were all enjoying the festive spirit of Winter-een-Mas with much gaming and not so much of the writing about gaming…

Well, I will say that we are actually still very much alive and kicking and we will be kicking back into gear soon, this week hopefully! Continue reading

Our Thoughts On: Symphony

On Monday of this week developer Empty Clip Studios published the casual indie game Symphony. The game is similar in a way to Audiosurf in that the game is based around importing your own music from your computer into the game and then playing the game along with that music. It’s a simple enough premise where you play as a small ship defending and arena against waves of enemies where the speed and intensity of the enemy waves is determined by the speed and intensity of the music. It’s masterfully done and is an absolute joy to play.

We thought that the game would come across better with a video review rather than a written review so I have created a My Thoughts On: Symphony video for you all to enjoy. I play through three of my songs in the game and have a great time doing so. I would absolutely recommend you check out the video to sell yourself on the game because you should then head over to Desura or Steam to buy it! Check the video after the jump!

Song of the Week – Mass Effect dubstepz

It’s that time of the week again folks. Actually, I’ve been wanting to say something about that… But first let’s get the tunes going!

This week I’ve got two things to offer you! First I have some official Bioware Dubstep! Bioware stuck pieces of footage from a variety of their trailers for Mass Effect 3 and then put some rather cool wubwubwub over the top of it. Excellent! The bad news on that score is that I couldn’t find the video on Youtube, so I can only provide you with a link to that. So as a peace offering I chose one of the Mass Effect dubsteps on Youtube and have embedded that instead! Two pieces of music! You lucky thing you!

Song of the Week – Doomsday

In honour of the awesome that was the latest Borderlands 2 trailer I have decided that this weeks batch of wubwub and weekend-inducing tunes will come in the form of Doomsday by Nero (also known as the “Borderlands 2 trailer theme song”).

Not only is an absolutely bloody awesome tune that should get you all ready for a night out with the lads but whenever it starts playing the trailer for Borderlands 2 pops into my head and I see explosions and dancing claptraps everywhere. Prepare to joy-puke your face off chaps!

Borderlands 2 – 87 Bazillion Guns just got Bazilliondier

Borderlands 2 just got the most awesome trailer I’ve seen in a video game in a long time. It makes some pretty big promises as well! It shows graphics and gameplay which may well knock our socks off. It says that there will be bazillions more guns than the bazillions in the first one. It promises puking your face off in joy.

AND it promises 96.5% more WUBWUB! With dancing Claptraps? And Dubstep? And guns? And awesome? And a release date of the 21st of September?

Count me the in!

Song of the Week – Syndicate the Song

This week’s Song of the Week is brought to us by the wubwub inducing Skrillex and is called Syndicate, because it would seem he has been making at least some of the music for the game Syndicate. Isn’t it interesting that the Song of the Week involving the game Syndicate should happen around the same time I find out about the game Syndicate?

That is an interesting thing I think… Anyway… Let’s make like a bad fisherman and drop the bass!
