Lost Odyssey is one of Nobuo Uematsu's best works.  If it were called Final Fantasy, it would have sold millions.

Lords of Thunder.  I bet hardly anyone even knows what that game is.  Even mentioning "new" games in the same sentence is an insult to Lords of Thunder.  Classic game that did not receive the attention it deserved.  We can thank EGM..GamePro for ruining that great system.

I love the guitar riff at the end of the Uncharted song: Museum Bust... but all songs are great though.. especially the Lost odyssey one

A really nice selection of music there, Jonathan.   I'm enjoying these shows, but is there any chance of extending them to an hour long?  :)

lol Dragon's Dogma main theme. As someone who rushes through the menu every time the game starts up, I didn't expect that one.

I'm most familiar with the "Lords of Thunder" tune (I have the MP3 somewhere on my hard drive).

 

I like the concept of this podcast: very cool!

 @Rovelius Yeah the "Into Free Dangan" song is also awesome. Puts you into the action before you even start the game!
