I love this trans-media approach but a niggling voice in the back of my mind is screaming “Don’t fuck this up!”

Soundtrack of the Day: GEARS OF WAR: JUDGMENT

image

Now that I’m getting back into blogging thanks to the very awesome Tumblr (the platform of which I’m falling in love with), I’m going to start posting a couple of regular daily thingies. The first of those will be a soundtrack pick for the day and the first of those picks is the score to the video game Gears of War: Judgment.

Composed by Steve Jablonsky and Jacob Shea, the Gears of War: Judgment soundtrack is awesome. It’s more like an epic film score than a video game score, although I admit it’s kind of yesteryear to say such a thing. It’s far from uncommon for video game scores to be as epic as film scores these days.

If you like the scores to the Transformers movies, Ender’s Game, or Battleship (all fantastic scores by the way) you’ll love this. I have it pounding through my Sennheizer RS170’s for the third time today as I write this. Any soundtrack you can happily play three times in a row despite your ears getting hot and sweaty from your headphones must be a good one :)

Buy this sucker on Amazon or listen to the whole thing completely free courtesy of YouTube:

This clip from Ragnarok has a very cool build up but, I have to say, that’s a pretty damn anti-climactic ending for a clip labeled “Lake Attack”….

Natural Doctrine

Don’t be fooled by its beauty — the world of Natural Doctrine is rife with brutal challenges. A strategy RPG not for the faint of heart. Coming to PS4, PS3, and PS Vita on September 23rd.

These images look great for sure. I’m just a tad confused as to why the graphics in the actual game (based on the trailers) is not a touch on this, I’ve even seen some people commenting that the trailers look like previews for PS2 games. What’s up with that?

'Doctor Who': Capaldi & Coleman Address Companion Exit Rumor

‘Doctor Who’ stars Peter Capaldi and Jenna Coleman address the rumor that the Doctor’s companion, Clara, will leave the show in the 2014 Christmas Special.

Damn, so that basically confirms she’s leaving. You know, I hope they replace her with a non-human companion. It’s about time the Doctor traveled with another K-9 or Kameleon type of character.

I’m seeing a few people whining about the quality of this trailer for Amityville: The Awakening. Personally I don’t mind it. Looks like it’ll be worth a watch to me.

Assassin’s Creed Unity

Explore an open-world, revolution-era Paris in the latest chapter of Assassin’s Creed. Coming to PS4 on October 28th. Watch our interview with Ubisoft.

I don’t have a PS4 yet, but I plan on getting one in the next couple of weeks all going well time-wise. I’ll definitely be grabbing Unity when I do, and Destiny. Journey too.
