    Birthday thread: Soundtracks

    Welp...Ross Probably never sees this, because i am already 5 Pages in, but here are my TOP FAVOURITE (in no specific order), because i LOVE game OSTs: - Homeworld-Series - Now i do know, that Ross knows this game, but i am not sure, if he ever listened to the OST. If you are searching for an OST, that catches the feeling of...well...being in Space, then you CANNOT go wrong with this one. Some examples: Homeworld 1: - This one REALLY nails the "space"-part of things! It is just so perfect when it comes to conveying the vast empty, yet beautiful Space, that is...well...space ^^' - Okay you KNOW, that this track means trouble. What is unique about it is, that i do not know a single SPACE-game, that uses this style of music. It has an oriental vibe about it, that REALLY gets me. Some other tracks like it: Homeworld 2: Though i do like the OST for the original more, the second game had some great tunes too, like the opening music: Or the Battle music (With some ingame sounds sadly): You know what is great about the Homeworld 1+2 OST? The original Composer Paul Ruskay had the master tapes all those years, just sitting around and when Gearbox made the remaster he was like "Yeah...i can remaster the OST! No problem!" In the end they released the WHOLE OST in mp3 AND FLAC!!!! GET IT ON STEAM FOR JUST 3 BUCKS EACH UNTIL JAN 4th 2016: http://store.steampowered.com/app/352590/ http://store.steampowered.com/app/352710/ Homeworld Cataclysm: First of all: Ross! If you read this: PLAY THE GAME! HEY WAIT! Let me explain! I DO know that you are reluctant about playing those games, but aside from the 3rd dimension, they aren't that hard to control. HOWEVER, Cataclysm still is a bit unique. It is the ONLY GAME i would call a HORROR RTS!. I don't know, if this genre is a thing, but Homeworld: Cataclysm comes DAMN close to being one! For that alone, you should play it! NOW TO THE MUSIC! Sadly this game probably will never get a remaster (Barking Dogs -now part of Rockstar- lost the Sourcecode...yeah...i am serious! Also there is some license issue.) and the OST is HEAVILY compressed by default, because they had to cramp the whole game on one Disc. It was also made by Paul Ruskay afaik, but the vibe took a COMPLETE turn. In Homeworld the OST felt like. "SPACE! THE FINAL FRONTIER!". In Cataclysm the OST feels more like... "IN SPACE...NOONE CAN HEAR YOU SCREAM!" (Which is funny, because you DO hear your guys scream in agony when...nope! NOT gonna spoil it! ) Okay Ross, if you REALLY need some proof, SPOILER AHEAD: Examples: It is hard to pick out some small bits, because the OST is rather eery and takes its time to build up the atmosphere, but DAMN if it does? ... ... DAMN!!!! If you ever play it and want some backstory (The HandBOOK [Yes it is a small book] is full with cool, but also tragic and nasty stuff.): ASK ME! I am a walking encyclopaedia, when it comes to Homeworld! - Trine-Series - The OST is as beautiful and magical, as the game. Though i never really played Trine 3 (since the reception is rather...not good?), Ari Pulkkinen still managed to at least create a great OST. Trine 1: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N0COnXVfcvY https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=61qvKW2gRTc Trine 2: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6nKrR6flDNw https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0i0Qkj5QQ7M Trine 3: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a1-4VUonDfA https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jOlktAXIQvM - Torchlight-Series - Well those games are, what i call the "NOT Diablo"-Series, because they are made by a large portion of the original devteam, that made Diablo 1+2. INCLUDING the composer. You can REALLY hear it : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=plYR9wUb61I https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u0YWAt7-plo Remember that guitar from the Tristram-Theme? Welp: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3GSVpEpSQA4 You KNOW it has to be the same guy, who made the Diablo OST. - A.R.E.S - Extinction Agenda - Now we are diving into a lesser known game series. I don't know, if they ever made a sequel. It is more of a pretty decent Mega Man X inspired game clone, but the OST is pretty good, but DAMN short. My Favourite: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_9exSxxhhi0 Other: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_pBEMZqkHvg https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_o2A8-SyBuI https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cfXKKaUjJSs https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q6ZmrTdptzc https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZNr4uJgarkw https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h6n_M4FfkAU https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dH7-IJq0ohU I just listed more than HALF the OST. This is one of those cases, where most of what is there, is really good and you want more! - THE END - No srsly...this is the end! Go away!
