Lost Odyssey is one of Nobuo Uematsu's best works. If it were called Final Fantasy, it would have sold millions.
We're going all-out loud with ballads, metal, and whimsy for this week's video game music podcast episode.
Greetings, video game music aficionados! If you're up for a bit of inspiration, then this week we have quite a selection for your ears. Regardless of whether you fancy an escalating fantasy ballad, or could do with some head-banging metal from the '90s using Redbook Audio, we've covered all the thumping bases for our latest video game music playlist.

Dude i didnt know that gamespot had this awesome music section! hell yeah! keep them coming Jonathan
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.
Diverse selection of Video Game SoundTracks here!
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!
