Sound Byte Radio Episode 2: Hitman: Blood Money, FF XIII, Mass Effect
On GameSpot's next music podcast episode, we check out the music of Hitman, FF XIII, and even a little bit of a Mass Effect tribute.
Greetings and salutations, fellow music listeners. Welcome to the second episode of Sound Byte Radio, your biweekly dose of video game music all in one listenable pseudo-mixtape podcast.
This week's offering will take you to modern times where electronica and orchestra combine into one smooth melding, as well as a piano rendition of a Final Fantasy theme. Today's show will also show off a sample of a concept album, which is a compilation of songs which never made the final cut of a game, as good as they are. In this case, the game in question is the Mass Effect trilogy.
If you like what you hear, leave a comment below or PM me with your two cents. Hope you enjoyed this week's offering.
