We've been fawning over Hohokum's music for a while now, because the soundtrack is a big part of what makes this upcoming artsy PS4 game such a treat.

So, It Seems Lil Wayne is Sampling Assassin's Creed Now (not Mass Effect

This is "Trigger Finger" from Lil Wayne's newest album I Am Not a Human Being II, released Tuesday. But Mass Effect Assassin's Creed fans should recognize that opening sample, before it lights up a bowl and rolls into the filth-flarn-filth lyrics (so, yes, NSFW warning if you're listening around others over speakers.) » 3/30/13 12:33pm 3/30/13 12:33pm

Acoustic Piano Meets Chiptunes, And It's Freakin' Lovely

Chiptune music is all well and good, but I like to give my ear something to hold onto along with all the bleeps and bloops. So I very much enjoy Aivi & Surasshu's new album "The Black Box," which mixes the keyboard chops of pianist Aivi Tran and the chiptune stylings of Surasshu. » 3/11/13 8:00pm 3/11/13 8:00pm

In place of the Off Topic post tonight, I thought I'd post this music. I was reminded of this excellent theme when watching those GamePro TV episodes from earlier. Man, I loved the theme to the first Tomb Raider. Listening to this was an extreme nostalgia trip. » 2/26/13 10:30pm 2/26/13 10:30pm

There have been approximately one billion tribute, cover, and parody versions of Gotye's 'Somebody That I Used To Know.' One of my favorites was this amazing Star Wars parody, but this shredding solo acoustic guitar version by Mike Dawes is another contender. » 8/13/12 2:45pm 8/13/12 2:45pm
