Sound Byte Radio Episode 16: Remember Me, Fez, Final Fantasy XIII-2

We jump start this month's music podcast episode with remixes and genre mash-ups from Halo 4, Fez, and Final Fantasy XIII-2

The Sound Byte Radio podcast is back to showcase the greatest in video game music. While we feature a few recent original songs, we also have added a few remixes of past tunes to liven things up a bit.

It takes a lot of work and talent to take an original tune that's set to one style of music, and then rework it to become a completely different genre with part of its original notes and chords intact. On with the show!

Download the show here. Give us a shoutout or pass us song requests either on the comments box below or on Twitter (@MrToffee , @gs_soundbyte, @gamespot). Our backlog of Sound Byte Radio episodes are all here for your listening pleasure.

Stay tuned for the next episode later this month, as reparations for our absence.

Oh, god, Remember Me, THANK YOU FOR picking this game. The music just utterly screws with my mind, and that is a VERY good thing. 

As for Final Fantasy XIII-2, they did a great job remixing the music, I felt.

Speaking of indie titles, Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams has very awesome soundtracks. You guys should cover it some day. 

Also there's a little PSP game released this year called Black Rock Shooter the Game. Very nice score too.

Notice how this is posted under Fez page, with all the "'follow Fez", "watch Fez review", "read Fez walkthrough" buttons. And where is this post's only screenshot from? Halo? Final Fantasy? Nope, it's from FEZzz.

Fez, again... seriously? How many times must we read the name of this mediocre game in such a short while before it'll rest in peace? It's not even that popular.
