Sucker Punch’s grunge -powered game makes an electrifying leap to next-gen with SECOND SON the new INFAMOUS game that throws its slacker superheroes into Seattle environs to be pursued by nefarious government forces. It’s X-MEN meets Kurt Cobain if you will, which makes composers the decision of composers Marc Canham (FAR CRY 2), Nathan Johnson (LOOPER) and INFAMOUS 2‘s Brain to go for a Pearl Jam-charged action score right on the beanie-wearing, spray-painting money. Where other video game soundtracks might achieve their adrenalin through pure, and sometimes dull electro-beats, this trio employs thrashing guitars, echoed hollering and sweat-flying drum solos […]Read On »

Having composed the last two scores for this series of particularly malleable role playing games, Russell Shaw returns for the third chapter of FABLE. And as you chose whether to save, or squander your fantasy kingdom of Albion, Russell is there to weave an uncommonly rich tapestry of melodic enchantment. Not only does he give you the heroic orchestrations, brass heraldry and female choruses you’d expect from any videogame quest, but also offers some nice unexpected bits, from Gypsy violin playing to the off-kilter bells of a music box and Greensleeves-like guitar strumming. Whether Albion ends up in riches or […]Read On »
