  • soggysage - December 15, 2011 12:04 p.m.

    Loved the majority of these soundtracks! Skyrim takes the cake for me though, that theme tune was stuck in my head for months. Also the two credit songs for Arkham City gave me goosebumps,really showcases what a disturbed bunch of enemies Batman has.

    If there is a legit orchestral concert tour for Zelda, I think that that is a prime example of game music that must be listened to. Oh Wait, there is!
  • Pytor - December 15, 2011 1:05 p.m.

    Uh yeah, the song is titled "And Away We Go", composed by Michael McCann, from the aforementioned Deus Ex: Human Revolution, published by Square Enix, developed by Eidos Montreal. It's track 23 on the soundtrack... DE:HR is my 4th favorite soundtrack of the year, with ilomilo, Bastion and Skyrim ahead of it, 3, 2, 1. I can has prize?

    I love how GR is branching out and adding more podcast. However UPDATE YOUR WEBSITE! Update RSS feeds to include soundradar and newsradar. (yes, shocking, some people dont use itunes!) Add easy to find links to the feeds. Add links on the top nav bar also.
  • BladedFalcon - December 15, 2011 1:43 p.m.

    Yay sound radar! And Sophia didn't lie when she said this episode would be different! ^^ Can't wait to give it a listen! :3
  • camilo-hache - December 15, 2011 1:52 p.m.

    My two favorite soundtracks from these year are the ones from Rayman Origins and Killzone 3
  • camilo-hache - December 15, 2011 1:53 p.m.

    And Pixeljunk Shooter 2, of course.
  • TURbo - December 15, 2011 2:18 p.m.

    Deus Ex: Human Revolution Soundtrack - 6. And Away We Go
  • kiing8kong6 - December 15, 2011 3:22 p.m.

    I thought the opening theme sounded like one in crysis but it's been awhile since ive played the game.
  • 510BrotherPanda - December 15, 2011 4:41 p.m.

    I liked Ghost Trick, Patapon 3 and Portal 2's soundtracks this year.
  • seanmcirish - December 15, 2011 5:19 p.m.

    Deus Ex: Human Revolution OST - Michael McCann - And Away We Go
  • ShowMeYourKitties - December 15, 2011 7:17 p.m.

    I just played through "to the moon" off of your guys' recommendation... Wow, that was beautiful. Its such a shame that I'll likely never know someone who has played it. But honestly, thank you soundradar
  • Muuurgh - December 15, 2011 7:43 p.m.

    Good episode. I've heard nice things about "To the Moon" and am even more interested in checking it out now. What I enjoyed most, though, was listening to the comments on "Bastion." I did a review of the soundtrack without having played it on my blog, if any of you are interested in checking it out:
  • garnsr - December 15, 2011 7:58 p.m.

    I'm not nearly as interested in listening to modern games' music as I am in listening to the classic stuff on VGmpire, but I'll try this one out, for the guests, who I enjoy on other podcasts. Maybe it'll hook me on this one.
  • Cenobite85 - December 15, 2011 10:34 p.m.

    Song is Away we Go. As for my favorite soundtrack from this year Human Revolution and Baston were my favorites.
