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.

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…

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…

Play It Again, Manny: Grim Fandango Remastered OST

Rare's the day we post about game soundtracks here, because by sheer coincidence every member of RPS was born without the ability to enjoy music at the same time as watching pixels flash, but I'll make an exception. Why? Oh, a combination of this one being a little bit special and my being hopelessly mired in the past, I guess.

Steam Music Player Out Of Beta, Valve’s Soundtracks Free

In almost every strategy, management or sim game I play, I will immediately turn off the music which comes with the game in favour of my own. That means that Steam Music Player sounds like a good idea to me even if I long ago abandoned mp3s in favour of streaming. The built-in functionality, which lets you browse your music library and control playback from…

Earworm: Game Music Bundle 7 Offers 5 Soundtracks For $1

A side benefit to videogame bundles: they offer the opportunity to write about games that would otherwise go unmentioned on a PC-only site. Take Game Music Bundle 7, for example. For $1, it gives you the soundtracks to The Banner Saga, Broken Age, Luftrausers, The Floor Is Jelly and Device 6. Which is four PC games and therefore ample excuse to mention that the mobile-only…

Eary Indie An’ Ya: Game Music Bundle 2 Live

For those of you that skip to the last paragraph of The Sunday Papers for a music recommendation, this whole post is nothing but a route into the aural delights of game music. The music this time isn't Jim's brand of 2001's Monolith's sneezes, nor is it my mashup nonsense. Nope, it's the Indie Game Music Bundle 2's collection of soundtracks gathered together in another…

OST(erity) Cuts: Indie Music Bundle

Here's an indie bundle with a difference - it doesn't contain any games. Instead, the Indie Music Bundle it's a collection of soundtracks from some of your favourite (assumption #1) indie games and some you have probably never heard of (assumption #2). As is swiftly becoming obligatory, the ten albums are available at a price of your choosing, although this is for one day only,…

Freehistoric: Dino Run SE

Let's start off today with something free that could eat up a massive chunk of your Friday, in bite-size portions. You may remember Pixeljam's Dino Run, it entertained John many a moon ago, back in the days when death by meteors actually seemed more likely than death by economic collapse. Detailing the last days of the dinosaurs in documentary-style pixel graphics, it's a hectic race…

Overture: Clint Mansell To Score Mass Effect 3

Gosh, I do love Clint Mansell's scores. Especially the soundtrack he put together for Moon. Although you used to have to be careful when listening to it on Spotify, as it would play through into the Fountain's equally splendid OST, but then into DOOM's. And you'd realise what you were listening to and feel ridiculous. Anyway, they've rejigged all that now, so it's safe. Oh…
