Music festival to feature four speaking panels; event created by BAFTA award winner James Hannigan and John Broomhall.

Game Art Connect has announced that it will host the video game music and live event Game Music Connect at Southbank Centre, London, on September 9.

I walk past that centre to get to university everyday. It'd be cool to go, but it's a little too steep price wise...

Hitman always had some pretty trippy tracks

I just have one question for Bungie.  Why, in a future world of "Destiny" are the weapon sights the same looking sight I could buy today?  The sights on all the weapons look the same as today's sights - do you think the world would advance and crumble or change with no advancement in weapon sights, but the future human can throw fireballs with his hands. Very confusing to me Bungie, what gives??  This games looks to play the same as Halo, but a different time.  Where are all the great open world games out there?  I love playing games like "Far Cry", now that is FUN!

I listen to game music all the time (it's like reliving the game experience all over again), but I don't think I'd be interested in hearing people talk about it. Game Music Concert sounds more much more appealing to me than Game Music Connect

Can Jesper come back to Assassin's Creed PLEASE? I would then be excited for new entries to the series. I'm being completely serious, I think his absence is the reason AC3 was a letdown and many people aren't too excited about the series at the moment.

James Hannigan is the guy that helped Jason Graves with the latest Dead Space game.

I wish there was a session by the guy who composed music for Journey.

@taosphil lol yeah man, 1 of the first things I said too... So 1000 years from now, the big question in sights is should I put an Eotech or the aimpoint on my electric ma deuce?... somehow it makes me have more questions than answers about this alternate future

@SythisTaru No, I disagree entirely. The soundtrack to three was one of the only good things about that game. It also deserved (in my opinion) an emblem for great soundtrack. Lorne Balfe is someone that works with Hans Zimmer, and he's a great composer. Jesper Kyd is also really great, but I think my favorite work of his is Freedom Fighters.

@SythisTaru Nah the gameplay was a letdown.The OST was kinda good but I do agree that Jesper is better at that.
