A new episode of Battle Bards is up!

Syl finally realizes a long-held dream to cover Blade & Soul on Battle Bards. Truly, this is the highlight of her life, the apex of her existence, and the sunshine beams through her kitchen window. It’s pretty groovy for the rest of the bards, too, as the threesome enjoy this Asian soundtrack and vie for their favorite picks.

A new episode of Battle Bards is live!

It was the first big superhero MMO, and for at least one Bard, it was the entry point into MMO gaming. Today we’ll be looking at the late, great City of Heroes and its strange, lovable, and often baffling soundtrack, as well as trying to explain to Syl why superheroes are totally cool. Pull on those tights and prepare to soar up, up and away into a score like no other on today’s show!

Feel the power! Feel the burn! Feel the…Vindictus!
When a game is made up of insane frantic combat, what will its score sound like? The Battle Bards are keen to find out with their journey through this particular game’s soundtrack. It’s wild, it’s bombastic, and it’s (as always) divisive!

Battle BardsA new episode of Battle Bards is up!

While Syp, Syl and I did a Wildstar episode back in show #6, we felt as though we didn’t do that soundtrack justice (not the least of which was the fact that we didn’t have access to the full OST yet!).  Now that the Bards have listened to almost 200 WildStar tracks, it’s time to pull their favorites and discuss this wild, zany musical romp!
