    Hey Sophia. So you got away from GameSpot and finally got your own podcast, excellent stuff. Keep 'em coming.
  • GR_SophiaTong - November 27, 2011 12:24 a.m.

    Haha, well I do miss Sound Byte because at least I had a radio station ;) This will do until I can get the bandwidth to do video interviews again.

    I'll stick to vgmpire. No offense but I just love me some Brett Elston
  • CH3BURASHKA - November 21, 2011 2:54 p.m.

    Ha ha, take that Brett! They kick you out AND start a VGM podcast just to spite you! Seriously though, this is cool - now I get a double dose of game music from SoundRadar and VGMpire. PS Congrats on getting your music gig back, Sophia; I infrequently followed Sound Bytes, and it was very enjoyable. Can't wait to see more SR.

    From the first three notes I heard of Uncharted 3's soundtrack, we were very firmly in the Westernized interpretation of music from "the middle east." Personally, I was glad for that, because that's exactly what I was hoping for from this soundtrack. I enjoyed Greg Edmonson's discussion on the ethos behind his compositional choices, particularly his note on using instruments such as the oud and saz purely as "flavour" within a dominating orchestral texture. Nice cast!

    I love Greg Edmonson. Uncharted, Firefly.. all awesome soundtracks. However, there is one person they had damn well better have on this podcast sooner or later: Marty O'Donnell.
