Windows 10 Review for Dummies

After all these years, and growing up with Windows 3.1, I have seen an entire evolution of computers and software. Touch screens and large resolutions were a pipe dream just 15 years ago. Now it's the norm. Going from a Packard Bell (yes, before HP) that couldn't run 3D Ultra Mini...

Soul Sacrifice Soundtrack Review

Posted on Monday, May 13 @ 12:14:47 PST by Keri_Honea
Soul Sacrifice is a decently critically acclaimed role-playing game for the Vita, a genre that the handheld has desperately needed. And with every good RPG, a great original soundtrack should be accompanying it. I haven't played Soul Sacrifice as of yet, but it didn't stop me from snagging the soundtrack as soon as Sony announced it was available for puchase. To me, what makes or breaks a soundtrack is whether the listener can enjoy the album without having played the game and if it's audibly pleasing outside the game context. The Soul Sacrifice original soundtrack passes both tests with ease.

On many levels, each track of the collection sounds very typical of what one would find in a JRPG soundtrack. For example, the piano melodies and accompanying soloist in "Requiem Within" sounds akin to what you find in the NIER soundtrack. The french horns in "When the Sky was Blue" and the percussion in "Humanoid" sound to be influenced by Final Fantasy XIII.

At the same time, each track carries its own distinct sound and melody, so none of the tracks sound alike, or really like they're part of the same game. In fact, the only element that binds the tracks together is this overarching sense of doooooooom. Not just doom; it's definitely dooooooom. I can almost feel through the strings, soloists, and fanfare how dark, dismal, and grim the game is, no matter if it's fast-paced like "March of the Deceased" or a mournful pastoral like "Breath of Peace."

The only downside to the soundtrack is how you have to purchase it. Right now, it's only available via the PSN, so if you want to listen to it on your computer or favorite handheld device, you'll have to copy the soundtrack over to a USB drive first. You can also copy it to your computer via your Vita connection, but there are far fewer steps by importing it from a USB drive than the Vita.

The Soul Sacrifice original soundtrack is currently $9.99 on the PSN, which isn't bad for 32 tracks and over an hour of video gaming tunage.
