Feature: Music to your ears

The best game soundtracks you can listen to for free right now

Another month, another big video game publisher puts a great big dollop of video game music online for zero pennies. This time, it's Bandai Namco, who have just uploaded every single Tekken soundtrack onto Spotify because, well, apparently everyone loves Tekken. I've never partaken in a Tekken, but with track names like "Massive Stunner" and "Lonesome City Jazz Party 1st", I'm already 100% convinced the…

I recently had the chance to chat with creative director Patrick Plourde and lead…

Child Of Light Devs On Poetry, Female Characters

Ubisoft is making an art game. Or at least, Child of Light is as close to an art game as any major publisher is likely to get for quite some time. It's being put together by a tiny team (headed up by Far Cry 3's directors, of all people, because we are living in Bizarro Land) with incredibly little in the way of bellowing blasts…

Impressions: Ubi’s ‘Art Game’ Experiment, Child Of Light

Say what you will about Ubisoft, but you can't deny that it's significantly less risk-averse than triple-A publishing kin like EA and Activision. Assassin's Creed III's alternate history Washington DLCs weren't the best, but that didn't stop them from being patently insane. Call of Juarez: Gunslinger, meanwhile, was a quirky, out-of-nowhere gem. And then of course, there was Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon, which Papa…
