The music of NMS

Personally, music plays a huge part in the games that I love. Some of my all-time favorite games have the best soundtracks (Final Fantasy VII, Red Dead Redemption, Skyrim, Transistor). I had never heard of 65daysofstatic until Sean talked about them in one of the IGN videos. After hearing him talk about them, seeing the band talk, and then buying some of their music myself, I couldn't be more excited for their procedurally created soundtrack to this amazing game. What do the rest of you think about the music for NMS? What are some of your favorite game soundtracks?

Re: The music of NMS

I had never heard of the band either until Sean mentioned them. I think their music really fits the game.
Soundtracks huh? Well, Red Dead Redemption has great music and is an awesome game.
I like a lot of the song choices for GTA V. Skyrim was great too! The Mass Effect games had great music as well. I'm having a hard time remembering game music at the moment. Might have to think about it and come back and post later.

Re: The music of NMS

Three of the best soundtracks are (in no particular order) : Halo:CE, Mass Effect and Skyrim. The radio in Fallout 3 was awesome, but I couldn't count it as the soundtrack per se. I do wonder how 65daysofstatic are gonna make the world feel alive enough and create a different acoustic atmosphere for the individual planets.

Re: The music of NMS

I like that the music is proceedurally generated just like your surroundings. That being said, any genre/style of music can get old with prolonged play. The ps4 will allow spotify to play a playlist in the background while youre playing a game. I assume we'll have some sort of in-game audio mixing controls to turn game music down, sfx/voices up. i use spotify's free version, the ads arent too bad) I've got a NMS playlist already started. Happy to share it if you look me up on spotify with the same user name.

Re: The music of NMS

some very early access here but the music is superb - just sit back and enjoy the journey (and ignore the rough edges on the Graphics as this is totally unpolished)

Re: The music of NMS

I'm a bit late to this topic, but I just noticed Bobsy's latest post as it popped up in my feed window. Yeah, thanks for those links. I have my soundtrack for the office sorted for today then :-)

Speaking of soundtracks I have 2 different types I listen to and like. At work it needs to be music without words so to not put me off. Usually at work I just load up the Wipeout playlist on Spotify...

...and this gets me through the day.

My favorite game soundtrack of all time has to be GTA Vice City. I strongly believe that this soundtrack was one of the reasons I played this game so much. The music and the game story just went together perfectly. It affected me so much I even started to take Tommy Vercetti's stance when walking around. Thankfully, it stopped at the floral shirts http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/happy.png

Re: The music of NMS

I grew up in the 1980's, so I agree. Vice City had the music I love, so it's my favorite as well. I wish they would revisit Vice City.
