One of the best investigative articles of game music journalism I have ever read. I have always wondered about non-Japanese singers and musicians working on Japanese video games. There is quite a contingent of ex-pats in Japan working in that industry.

I played Castlevania: Symphony of the Night many times and never Read more

What an amazing story! Thank you for this. As a young teen, I didn’t appreciate the ladder climb sequence. When I replayed the game as an adult, it finally clicked with me, and it was 99% because of Harrell’s performance. Read more

Thank you so much for your work in getting this Interview. MGS3 is really important to me, and Cynthia’s performance captivated me from the first words. Thank you for helping to share her wonderful story with us all!

Wow, flashback.  I had one of those as a kid.  I wonder where it is now, my 2 year old would love playing with it.

It’s getting harder and harder to find a working PS2 at a reasonable price, and I so want to revisit some of my PS2 games. Ring Of Red forever!

This reminds me of my Retron 5, which just died after completing 2 games (and had horrible lag). Or other Retro-Clone-Systems. And Sony as well as MS have it quite a bit more easy... they just need a single Disc Drive to support many Systems. Same idea from Nintendo or Sega would be a MESS (imagine Sega.... a box with Read more

That was my take. Release a 3rd PS5 model that has PS1-4 support since I would be glad to pay a premium for that one.
