Sound Byte Radio Episode 6: Elder Scrolls IV, Persona 3, Darksiders II

We return from a season break to bring you video game music galore, featuring Celtic-influenced dirges, fantasy rock and some pop.


Salutations! After a short break and dealing with E3 2012, Sound Byte Radio is back with a vengeance.

For this episode of video game music goodness, we go from a rock-solid rendition of a Falcom game's overworld theme, to something more serene from the Elder Scrolls series and The Secret of Mana. Just to mix things up, we added in some modern era tunes and an acoustic guitar-heavy finale akin to the end credits theme for a Sergio Leone flick.

As ever, download the full podcast here. If you can detect the theme of this week's episode and if you like it, just send comments down below and give us your feedback. See you again in two week's time.
