Season 3, Episode 7: Music, Gaming, and Zombie Dinosaurs!

We dig into music and gaming with me, Ruby, Doug, and Matthew.  We discuss what works about using music, give some specific examples, and talk about games that already have and/or use music.

We use clips from the following sources in this episode:

Midnight Syndicate, I Fight Dragons, The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly OST, Escape Curse of the Temple, Deadlands OST, Diablo II OST, Bolt Thrower, Final Fantasy (IX and X2), Team Teamwork, The Neverhood OST, Tetris (by way of IFD), Warrior Nun Areala OST, Entombed (Wolverine Blues), The Nextwave Theme Song, Cowboy Bebop OST, T. Swift (blame Matt), Lord of the Rings OST, Underworld OST, World of Warcraft OST, Bastion OST, Transistor OST, Hotline Miami OST, Xena OST, Star Wars (Duel of Fates), Xenosaga OST, Saints Row Dubstep Gun, GWAR, and last but not least MC Lars.

We also review MC Lars’ new LP: The Zombie Dinosaur, which should be available soon!  Check out www.mclars.com for details.  Also, we do a bonus review of his Mix Tape: 22 Concepts.
