Before delving into the particulars, it is important for me to tell you that the BioShock Infinite soundtrack does not, I repeat, does not feature the oft-talked about song covers the game is well-known for. If you are unaware of these, know that when you play the game, you’ll be treated to a barbershop quartet singing “God Only Knows,” a calliope playing “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun,” and a blues version of “Tainted Love” among other strange appropriations. It is very clear that licensing fees played a part in preventing these from landing on what is basically the score to the game, but that does not mean the soundtrack is lacking on its own. I’d compare it to a delicious bowl of ice-cream without whipped cream or sprinkles on top – the dropped tracks would just make a great thing better.

Lara Croft is back and better than ever thanks to her new sidekick, Jason Graves. The new Tomb Raider game not only reboots the franchise with a new origin story, it also achieves new levels of interactive cinematic gameplay worthy of a Hollywood motion picture, thus it only seems fitting that it receives a score worthy of the big screen as well, and Graves has delivered just that.

TRON: Uprising, Disney’s animated epic, inspired by the films TRON, and TRON: Legacy, may have come as something of a surprise to fans. What shouldn’t come as a surprise is simply how cohesive a universe this truly is. The lore has been solidified, and new players come into view with a familiarity that most franchises have a difficult time maintaining. Furthermore, the sounds of the universe have always had a unique and defining characteristic that further evolved with Daft Punk’s TRON: Legacy OST.

Today Capcom announced the talent which have created the music for DmC Devil May Cry in close collaboration with Capcom and Ninja Theory. Working in close collaboration with Capcom and Ninja Theory, both Noisia and Combichrist composed music that will be heard during cinematics and gameplay, including combat.  Combichrist catalogue tracks were also licensed to add to the game’s already adrenaline-pumping soundtrack.

“It’s been an awesome experience working with Ninja Theory on the game. We had great freedom but were also bound by certain criteria typical in the game world. These are challenging boundaries (for example; consistency in sonics over 180 minutes of music) but also lots of space in terms of dynamics & progression and instrumentation being able to create soundscapes without having to worry about holding the attention of a dancefloor. Their music director was great to work with, good vibes. It's great when you get to play to your strengths. Also, the game kicks ass! “ – Noisia, June 2012

“As an avid gamer myself I was honored to be asked to work on this project. I had a lot of fun digging myself into Dante’s psyche in order to create music to match the battle scenes and am equally as excited to license existing Combichrist music. I’m looking forward playing the finished game when it comes out.” - Andy LaPlegua, Lead Singer Combichrist, June 2012

The concert also will highlight orchestral renditions of music from other series games, including The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening™ and The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask™.
