It's been a month or less since we've heard any developments from the upcoming sequel to Sega's Streets of Rage/Bare Knuckle from Dotemu, Lizardcube, and Guard Crush Games.

The Top 30 Relaxing JRPG Soundtracks To Listen To

It may sound strange to some that the Japanese role-playing game (JRPG) genre is so strongly defined by its country of origin, Japan. When we talk about JRPGs, we normally refer to the styles or trends that are commonly used in Japan for their games, be it their graphical style, aesthetic, game design, or music. Out of these different elements, JR...

These Are The Best PlayStation One Soundtracks Of Its Era

Again, happy 25th anniversary, ye ol' PlayStation console. Now a retro device, the PlayStation One is a fan favourite among Southeast Asian gamers because of its plethora of games be it your Final Fantasy JRPGs or your obscure puzzle gaming nonsense.

Here’s A Video That Reminds You Why Yasunori Mitsuda Is A Music Legend

Man, I remember a time when I enjoyed the heck out of Chrono Trigger on the PS1. Yes, I'm one of those guys late to the SNES JRPG party. But the fact that a 1995 SNES cartridge game ported on a CD anthology -tacked on with loading times, mind you- can still impress me more than all the PS1 FFs and Konami/Capcom JRPGs combined is a testament to the...

Here’s Why The River City Girls Soundtrack Sounds Awesome

Composer Megan McDuffie has done a lot of electronica and industrial music based on a few of her inspirations like Depeche Mode and IAMX. So it's not a huge surprise how catchy 2019's River City Girls' music is. Here's the latest SoundScape that talks a bit about her works. It's also an excuse for me to create this short showcase of three standout...

The Legend Of Falk: How Malaysia’s Game Audio Treasure Scored A Square Enix Gig

The name Falk Au Yeong may not ring any bells, but chances are you've heard of his audio work.

A bit of the former, with some sci-fi synths and drum machine sounds to go along with the cop-a...

You know, the one that ...

Here’s Why People Remember Sakura Wars Even If They Didn’t Play It

It's no secret that the best themes and music can make people remember films they didn't even watch or games they didn't even play. I know a bunch of people who haven't touched Halo and yet they remember that main theme melody in the Bungie-composed theme. The same goes for Mario, Sonic, and a slew of other retro titles. Sakura Wars for the Sega S...

With Kingdom Hearts 3 out in a few days (or right now if you're from Japan), it's time to look back and remember what made the series so great in the first place.
