The Best Video Game Soundtracks 2018 Awesome Mix Tape

Published

on

As I do every year, I’ve made another awesome mixtape sampling my favourite songs from the best video game soundtracks of 2018. Included is the fully orchestrated soundtrack by Yasunori Nishiki which was composed to reflect the details, personalities, upbringings, and motivations behind all eight characters – as well as music from Shadow of the Tomb Raider by Montreal composer Brian D’Oliveira, who spent three years travelling through dark corners of the Amazon and remote Mexican villages collecting the rare instruments used to compose the soundtrack. Of course, you will also hear music from John Paesano (Spider-Man), Dan Romer (Far Cry 5) and Bear McCreary, responsible for the emotional score for God Of War which features haunting percussion and a deep male choir chanting a series of ominous notes. As always, I try to keep the mixtape just under an hour. You can view the track listing below. I also recommend Antonia’s massive two-part retrospective on the twenty best video game soundtracks of 2018. Enjoy!

Watchmen Podcast: Breaking Down “A God Walks into Abar”

Published

Watchmen Podcast A God Walks into Abar

“A God Walks into Abar” is the deeply heartfelt episode we’ve been waiting for!

The wonderfully pun-titled penultimate episode—directed by Nicole Kassell, written by Damon Lindelof and Jeff Jensen— is a powerful love story that spans many years, and told in a disjointed fashion to explain just how the most powerful man in the world wound up in Tulsa, Oklahoma, married to Angel Abar and with his memory wiped out. It’s an amazing hour of television—able to carefully turn a seemingly indecipherable character, into something beautifully textured, human, and meaningful— and we have plenty to say about it.

Our Watchmen podcast will see Simon Howell and an assortment of guests tackle the entire series (or at least the first season). In this eight episode,  Simon Howell , Randy Dankievitch and guest Sean Collettin take a deep dive into “A God Walks Into Abar” and note some of the more astonishing facts of the episode you might have missed.

And for those of you wondering, in order to keep things simple, we’ve decided to upload each episode to the same feed as our other podcast, Before the Internet.

Watchmen Podcast Episode 7

“An Almost Religious Awe” is an episode designed to give answers about Angela’s tragic backstory and the nature of Vietnam as the 51st state, but it’s also about the most powerful being in the Watchmen universe, Doctor Manhattan, who has been hiding in plain sight this entire time. With the show’s stakes getting raised ever higher and the doomsday clock ticking closer to midnight, Doctor Manhattan is finally revealed in the most shocking scene yet. As the 7th Kavalry, spearheaded by Senator Joe Keene prepares to launch an attack in hopes to gain the powers of Doctor Manhattan himself, the question on everyone’s mind is how Angela, Jon Osterman and Lady Trieu plan on stopping them. There’s a lot to discuss this week including couches rigged with booby traps, Adrian Veidt’s odd courtroom battle and so much more.

Our Watchmen podcast will see Simon Howell and an assortment of guests tackle the entire series (or at least the first season).
