Game Music of The Week…

Thought I would keep it new release themed this week so yes it is the main theme “Nates Theme” From the Uncharted series.

I specifically mention series here because thats what struck me about this song. Think of all the major Hollywood blockbuster series that we have seen over the decades of cinema. Star Wars, Indiana Jones, Superman, Jaws, Lord of the Rings… they all have one thing in common and overarching theme song that stays true even when the series itself loses its wheels.

GTAV – Going Going, Back Back To Cali Cali…

 

No other game conjures up as many questions and as much speculation than a Grand Theft Auto title. Where will it be? When will it be set? Who will it star? What can we do? Will there be skydiving?

Unchartered Territories: Proof That A Naughty Dog Can Teach Itself New Tricks…

 

The Uncharted series is an odd beast to describe when only looking at the sum of its parts. It seems to have copied from a lot of its peers, third person action with shooting, platforming and puzzle elements, sounds familiar right? But the gameplay mechanics are not total of the sum of the Uncharted games. To me the Uncharted series is the definition of “little touches” that most videogames lack. From the believable interactions and dialogue between the characters in the game to the incidental pieces of animation that only happen once in the entire game, Naughty Dog have proven that every little thing matters when trying to get everything right to epic proportions.
