Sound Byte Radio Episode 13: Ico, Chrono Cross, To The Moon

This month's music podcast playlist will put you in the mood for love, with songs from Team Ico's adventure title and a couple of RPG themes or two.


We hope you had a lovely time celebrating Valentine's Day this week. Because of such a love-filled occasion, I decided to arrange this month's video game music playlist with a lot of soft and emotion-stirring tunes fit for setting the mood.

As well as recruiting the usual suspects, like RPG themes played during tender moments, we also selected a few (considerably) odder choices just to inject some energy amidst the slow tempo. Take a listen for yourself while you light up some candles in a dimly-lit room scented with potpourri.

Download the music podcast here, and be sure to tell us about your favorite romantic tunes from video games in the comments box below.
