Sound Byte Radio Ep. 14 - Tomb Raider, Valkyrie Profile 2, Hard Corps Uprising

This month's playlist is all about the sounds of war and conflict, ranging from the latest Tomb Raider to a couple of 2D shooters.

After the subtleties of the last Sound Byte Radio music podcast, it's high time to inject a lot more testosterone into this month's playlist.

From fighting game music to something akin to a Hollywood action blockbuster, we've got you covered. Get your ears ready for this playlist:

I always look forward to these music podcasts, Jonathan.  Such a great selection of music, and I wish this podcast could become a weekly feature.  Thanks once again.  :)


That is the market they made for them selfs so if it all goes down the toilet they have only them selfs to blame.What we are seeing right now is  creative choke point that will pass.IMO the industry is expanding and brining in more and more people as gamers and game makers.It is rough out there for sure but if you make a shit game why shouldn't you fail ?THQ made mediocre games that where on the 7-8 rating scale and still they failed.Being mediocre is not god enough anymore.


Excellent selection Jonathan! Especially loved the Hard Corps track, big fan of Daisuke's work.


Good show! Really enjoyed it =)


Awesome pieces Keep'em comin'


Thank You so much Jonathan for keeping this show Alive :)

@RIIIIKU Thanks for listening! As long as we get more people tuning in this show (and the rest of the 13 episodes), it'll definitely be kept alive :)


@mr_toffee @RIIIIKU I really hope you are getting enough clicks... Not enough good casts on game music around. Any recommendations?
