Riddle Me This, Batman


The Batman Arkham series of video games were my first real dive into the deeper mythology surrounding Batman.

I had seen the first two Christopher Nolan directed films when I started playing Arkham Asylum, but I had never picked up a comic book about The Bat.

Life Is Strange – Picture Perfect

Around the time I was playing the first season of Life Is Strange, I attended a family gathering at my in-laws’.

I overheard some of my younger cousin in-laws taking about video games. Having finally found some common ground with someone there, I joined the conversation.

Soon it came time for me to tell them about the game I was currently playing.

Top 5 Songs from ‘MoS: Level 6’

Back in February, I shared my favorite song from each ‘Miracle of Sound’ album.

This proved to be very difficult, as there are so many great songs there!

So I have decided to make a Top 10 or Top 5 list for each album, depending on how big the album is to begin with.

 

5. Don’t Say A Word

I have yet to play any games in the Metal Gear Solid series, so this song does not have any familiarity to something I like to help it ingratiate itself to me, like a lot of other songs by this artist.

I simply enjoy the song, nothing more to say than that.

 

4. Lady Of Worlds

In this song about The Witcher 3’s main female character Ciri, Gavin gives away most of the singing-duties to Ailin Kennedy.

As with all his other Witcher songs, this one is also great.

I look forward to CD PROJEKT RED!’s next game ‘Cyberpunk 2077’, if only to hear the songs it will inspire Gavin Dunne to make.

 

3. Road Rage

I love the movie this song was based on, and I think it is a modern action-classic.

The song fits the movie’s focus on the metal of cars and bullets perfectly, while also touching on the heart of the film, motherhood.

Guns and gas and gods!

 

2. London Town

While I have played a lot of games in the Assassin’s Creed series, I have not played Syndicate, the game this song was based on.

One of the reasons that I really like this particular song is that I used to be a huge anglophile during my teens, probably helped on by my love for Doctor Who and Harry Potter.

And while I am not quite as crazy about Britain as I was back then, I still love it.
