Feature: Music to our ears

Röki’s music sounds as gorgeous as the game looks

Polygon Treehouse's excellent adventure game Röki is out today, and as you may have seen from my Röki review, I was rather enamoured with it. It's a lovely, heartwarming and beautiful-looking game, but its soundtrack deserves special mention as well. Composed by Aether, Röki's music is full of poignant and exquisite melodies that really drive home the game's folkloric roots and fairytale environment, so I…

Untitled Goose Game’s vinyl soundtrack is double-grooved for random tracks

The playful piano of Untitled Goose Game will be inscribed in plastic, creating a physical record of the goose's havoc. To hear the piano is to know the crimes it accompanied. The merchmasters at Iam8bit today announced that the soundtrack's vinyl release will launch on September 29th, and that it has a clever little trick. Just as the game's soundtrack is different every time, the…

Relax and raid to the sounds of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla: Out Of The North

Usually, when I'm working the news shift, I'll pop on one of those lo-fi youtube mixes to keep my ears distracted. Today, however, I'm thinking about trying something a little more Nordic. This week, a snippet of Assassin's Creed Valhalla's soundscape hit Spotify in the form of the Out Of The North EP, a seven-track mix of chanting, panpipes and warlike drums to study /…

Overwatch: Cities And Countries is a collection of soundtracks from the game, all based on the global locations of its maps. You know when you first load into a match, and it plays that short riff of music symbolic of the setting? These…

Final Fantasy IX is 20 years old today and its soundtrack is still absolutely bangin’

It's Final Fantasy IX's 20th anniversary today and what better way to celebrate one of the best Final Fantasy games ever made than to have a good old-fashioned sing-song? I'm not just talking about bellowing out the game's celebrated end credits theme "Melodies Of Life" either. I mean a proper celebration of one of Final Fantasy IX's enduring legacies: its superb, nay, one might almost…

Command & Conquer Remastered soundtracks now on Spotify and other streaming services

Following the launch of the Command & Conquer Remastered Collection earlier this month, EA have now slammed its soundtracks onto streaming services for your sonic satisfaction. Along with its remastered versions of the C&C and Red Alert soundtracks, they've put up an album of hard-rockin' new recordings from C&C composer Frank Klepacki and his band, The Tiberian Sons. Put a pep in your step on…

Konami still haven’t announced a new Silent Hill, but some Silent Hill stuff has arrived

Despite all the notE3 showcases and announcements this week, Konami have not announced a new Silent Hill. Not even hinted at one. Despite the rumours that they might have two coming. Ah well. However, two notable things have happened in the field of quiet mounds:1) Dead By Daylight launched Silent Hill DLC, adding Cheryl Mason and Pyramid Head. 2) Konami put seven Silent Hill soundtracks…

My musical highlights from Steam’s soundtrack sale

Steam's soundtrack sale is nearly over, but as the resident soundtrack fanatic here at RPS, I thought it was only right and proper to take some time out and celebrate some of my favourite tracks and compilations. After all, there are plenty of bangers in there right now, and it would be a shame to miss out on these crackin' tunes while they're going cheap.…

The best video game music to fall asleep to

Sleep and games are among my favourite things. Certainly they're the biggest occupiers of my time, and thanks to my collection of chronic ailments they often overlap. I have always struggled with sleep, you see. It doesn't happen regularly, nor when I invite it. It simply comes when it comes (I've tried whatever you're about to suggest, thanks), and I've learned that it's best to…

Nier soundtracks are now streaming on Spotify and Apple

Nothing says 'Monday morning' quite like punching yourself directly in the heart with a fist formed from five minutes of music then crumpling on the floor, a solitary tear rolling down your cheek. Thanks, Square Enix, for enabling this Monday morning moment by adding Nier soundtracks to Spotify. As part of the tenth birthday celebrations for the series, soundtracks for Nier: Automata as well as…

Steam to start selling soundtracks independently of games

The virtual hills are alive with the sound of music, thanks to Steam wresting soundtracks from the videogames they were yoked to. As of today, developers can sell soundtracks independently rather than as DLC, which means you won't need to buy or download the games themselves. Videogames are defunct now. Let us all escape into the superior medium of sound.

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…

This Jet Set Radio tribute album will graffiti itself on your heart

Jet Set Radio is one of those flawless series that we all wish we Game God would grant bestow upon us with a new entry. While the original game is available through Steam, getting modern versions of the other titles is nearly impossible. So instead we must remember it through the legacy it leaves behind. And with an unbearable amount of heart, 2 Mello has…

Deus Ex’s Breach Mode Enlists NeoTokyo Composer

The Official RPS Campaign To Get Billy Idol In Deus Ex gathers momentum. No, Eidos Montreal haven't yet given a rebel yell confirming ole spiketop's presence on the soundtrack, but it's surely a matter of time now I know we're musically on the same page. You see, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided [official site] has drafted the chap behind the flipping lovely soundtrack for Source mod…
