Please enjoy this 25th Anniversary tribute album to the music of the 16-bit classic Sonic soundtracks!
Greetings TAY readers, I wanted to share with you all a very special project I have been slaving away at for the better part of 2016. But first let’s rewind to 2010.
Just wanted to share this mix I made in memory of Prince Rogers Nelson, with the TAY community. Please enjoy, it runs nearly 3 hours. Volume Two will be recorded this weekend. I will also be creating a series in honor of David Bowie.
(EDIT: It has been brought to my attention that Bowie’s “The Buddha of Suburbia” was indeed a studio release, and has thus been added to the ranking)
With the tragic passing of David Bowie, I have taken it upon myself to re-explore his entire discography and rank all of the albums among each other by my “personal…
Very minor spoilers for the very first area of Bloodborne ahead:
NOTE: I have purposefully omitted most images from the game, as they tend to contain spoilers or reveals that are far better to experience first hand.
Sunless Sea, the first Steam title from Failbetter Games (creators of the browser based RPG "Fallen London"), has been in constant rotation on my gaming laptop for…
SPOILERS HERE... because this entire post is about Far Cry 4's end game. So if you haven't played it yet, or haven't gotten to the last few stages, feel free to just skip on ahead to the next TAY article.
I was trying to find a clever #Gamergate related image to use for this post, but I stumbled upon this one, and I liked the simplicity of it. THIS is what gaming is about. People playing games together! Genders be damned. We all love gaming!

I'm sure like all of my fellow From Software fanatics, that you all can't wait for Bloodborne to hit early next year. And like most of you, I'm sure we're all wondering if the world of Bloodborne might be tied to the existing three Souls titles?
I thought that this information might be useful to the readers of TAY, as this could very well effect the entirety of YouTube's video game music archives. All of the chiptune acts, anyone making remixes of game scores. This could be a huge blow to all unsigned artists. Unfortunately this article is a little vague on…
Something strange has been happening in the past few years. Suddenly females, minorities, gays, and the mentally challenged are playing video games, and demanding to have their likeness appear in every game that comes out. I know, right?
If you are unable to sense the sarcasm in the previous paragraph, I'm sorry, and I…
I was approached by an old friend of mine recently, who has recently joined a start-up called Podium. Basically it's like Reddit meets Twitch meets YouTube. That probably doesn't make any sense, so I'll let the CEO explain below:
"Podiuum is a visual storytelling platform that brings together everyday experts…
Howdy TAY! Been a while since I posted one of these Orchestrated Video Game cover albums. This one actually got hosted on the official Cave Story fan site back in 2011.
Hi Tay! What a horrible night to have a curse, eh?
Perhaps I could get you're assistance on a very specific request I am trying to fulfill?
So here's the skinny... I've been booked to DJ at this Video Game themed Burlesque show:
Disclaimer: If you are not currently immersed in Dark Souls II, the following will read like alien gibberish. If you are playing, this post contains very mild spoilers for the Earthen Peak area.
Vernian Process - Sonic Symphony (Retro Gaming Retrospective #1)
Disclaimer: I released this last year, but failed to really promote it much (too many other things going on). It's by no means, OC Remix-level (in fact all of my submissions to OC remix have always been rejected), but for a self-taught musician, I think it came out much better than I imagined. I think my submissions…
From the minds behind the Yakuza series, Binary Domain was released in early 2012, to almost no fanfare and very little promotion from SEGA. Despite globally positive critical praise, gamers just didn't really hear about this game enough to give it any chance of success. Which is a damn shame. And wtf Kotaku? Why did…
