Jukebox Heroes: Starting your MMO music collection

I love seeing people turned on to MMO music, particularly after it's gotten such a bad rap over the years. But for the new fan, it can be a daunting proposition to start up a collection. After all, it's not as if you can go down to your local vinyl shop, peruse a stack of 45s, and come out with a...

Jukebox Heroes: Guild Wars Factions' soundtrack

East Asian-themed music in MMOs is something that I generally welcome. Even if the title isn't an Asian MMO, chances are that sooner or later developers like to work an Eastern zone, class, or city into the game -- and with that comes a specific sound. I'm by no means educated on what instruments...

Guild Wars 2 composer Soule kickstarting symphony project

Here's an interesting Kickstarter wrinkle for you. Instead of funding the usual indie sandbox game, how would you feel about contributing to the first symphonic work from legendary game music maestro Jeremy Soule? Soule is the prolific composer behind more than 60 commercial scores including...

Jukebox Heroes: A few of my favorite MMO soundtracks

I could hear some of you thinking in disbelief last week, "If Age of Conan isn't one of your top MMO scores, what is? And just how much am I not sending you a Christmas card this year, you loser?" You were kind enough to just think it and not say it, but I could hear it even so. As we've...

Jukebox Heroes: Guild Wars Prophecies

What's that, you say? A cheap tie-in, you say? Oh, pish posh. It just so happens that I appreciate the rich oeuvre of Jeremy Soule, and the alignment of the planets is... OK, it's a cheap tie-in. I can't help it; Guild Wars has been on my mind this past week, and since the full Guild Wars 2...

Guild Wars 2 makes its first soundtrack single available on iTunes

Are you fond of MMO music? If you're not, then you probably won't care that Guild Wars 2 has put its first single from the soundtrack on iTunes. If you're a regular reader of our Jukebox Heroes column, however, that announcement is probably figurative music to your ears. (The actual music to your...

Guild Wars 2 soundtrack available for $30

Just when the wait seems unbearable, something comes along to offer a bit of respite. Although fans eager for Guild Wars 2 still have almost two months to wait to dive into the actual game, they can immerse themselves in the world via music sooner that that; the official GW2 soundtrack is now...

The Perfect Ten: MMO Jukebox

Earlier this year, I got to expose my musically nerdy side to you all in a one-two shot of MMO theme song countdowns. The truth is that I'm just a huge sucker for video game music, and as such, I've collected a wide range of MMO scores to bolster my MP3 player. I know that we players tend to...

Leaderboard: Age of Conan's score vs. Guild Wars' score

Believe it or not, there are actually loads of incredible MMO soundtracks. Oh, I know we all bellyache about the repetitive music and how we turn it off and just listen to speed metal or Justin Bieber while we grind boars, but the scores are often wonderful when removed from infinite looping. ...

The Perfect Ten: Best MMO theme songs (part two)

The last time on the Perfect Ten, disaster struck the good ship Poseidon and the surviving readers were running out of air as they tried to escape the flipped-over vessel. Also, we were counting down the top 20 MMO themes, but that's of small consolation to the soon-to-be bereaved friends and...
