    Top Score: video game music podcast with Emily Reese

    I'm about 4 episodes into this podcast and really want to recommend it to you guys. Fantastically in-depth interviews with various composers who have worked on video games. Great stuff in there. Go give it a listen!

    Pretty excited to see Darren Korb. Bastion has such gloriously good music.

    Looks really interesting, thanks for the heads up.

    My only pet peeve is that it focus on the current games, most of which I didn't play yet. Did I said pet peeve? I mean it's even better, so that it's a surprise.

    EDIT: Zillions of interviews with Inon Zur and Jesper Kyd? Can't download this faster!

    I was about to leave this thread until I saw your post. Definitely going to give this one a listen and I already stumbled upon other episodes I'm interested in.

    I'd recommend listening to the episode with Jason Graves who worked on Dead Space even if you weren't into the game. He just has a really interesting method of composition and way of thinking. Also, the Stacking episode is really nice.

    Just an update on today's show, with Lennie Moore (Red Orchestra 2,Outcasr).
    They will start to broadcast the actual show from now on, so the length will be limited to 5 minutes. :(
    At least there is 50 episodes or so in archive.

    Many thanks to Skeletor for discovering this great show.

    Resurrecting this thread because the programme is still awesome and today's episode is John Broomhall. Transport Tycoon. I'm in tears.
    EDIT: Mobile? Micro-transctioned up to hell I assume.

    Such a great podcast. Need to dip back in again now. I've listened to the Matt Uelmen, Darren Korb and Austin Wintory ones multiple times!

    Yeah this is pretty good. I liked the episodes about The Last Of Us' ronroco music and Assassin Creed 4's sea shanties. :)

    If it's anything like the iOS version then - nope, F2P-free. Also, thanks for resurrecting!

    Can anybody recommend other VGM-centric podcasts?

    - If the sound of Samuel Barber's "Adagio For Strings" makes you think of Kharak burning instead of the Vietnamese jungle, most of your youth happened during the 90s. -

    I was reading around and it was based on Locomotion, which was supposed to be Transport Tycoon 2, but there was some issue with the publishers. I even, ahem, checked out the new music and from what I see it looks like the same MIDI passed through a better soundset like FluidSynth.

    According to that podcast and his homepage it has all been recorded with live instrumentals this time. ;)

    Yup, that either betrays my existence as non-audiophile, or indicates that FluidSynth is really great.
