Tiny Barbarian DX: The Serpent Lord Review

a1693485418_2Introduction: Today for the release of the Tiny Barbarian DX: The Serpent Lord OST I’ll be doing a review. Jeff Ball is the action hero behind this OST. I can totally recall the Astroman soundtrack review I did,  and here is a link to the original Tiny Barbarian soundtrack. You pick it up for $4.99 and it’s totally not robin you. I was planning on having this review done on the 1st of June, but after the 6th day of waiting the OST got put up fully on bandcamp.

Knightmare Tower – Original Soundtrack Review

Introduction: Long time no see. I heard the Legendary Hyper Ducks had come out with a new album so I figured it was my duty to all things IGM to do a review of this OST. The soundtrack I am reviewing today belongs to a game with a reckless disregard for physics, Knightmare Tower. I’ve played through the whole game and it’s fun little distraction of a game with a good leveling up system. You can get the OST here for about a $1.50.

Indie Game Music Bundle 3

Wow, you can really tell I keep on top of things here at TIG Tunes when the latest Indie Game Music Bundle is already almost 6 complete days in and I’m *just* posting about it! How awesome is that?! 8D

For those of you out of the loop, the Indie Game Music Bundles is where you can pay a measly $10 and get, in this case, 18 superly totally awesomely tubular indie game or indie game inspired albums. That’s right, 18. That’s about $0.56 per album for each can give you hours upon hours of endless listening joy.

Diddy Kong Racing: Bootleg Circuit Review

3556472630-1-tmb

Introduction: We got a remix album today. It’s Diddy Kong Racing: Bootleg Circuit by Benjamin Briggs. Now Diddy Kong Racing is one of my all time favourite racing games and one I hold dear to my heart. I played the living crap right out of this game. As an example, I beat every developer time with every available vehicle for every single level. Seeing a remix album, even though it’s only 5 tracks long, is a real treat. You can pick up Diddy Kong Racing: Bootleg Circuit at Benjamin Briggs Bandcamp page.

Tower of Heaven OST Review

679496115-1_tmb

I kind have got a better hold on my position at work and things aren’t as stupid crazy busy right now until my kid is born, then it’ll probably will be again. But until then, I’m gonna try and get some updates in. Also, trying out a new rating system, we’ll see how it holds up.

Indie Game Music Bundle 2

First, I’d like to apologize to the entire community for not keeping up with updates. With the training in my job and how much of a time sink it is, it just hasn’t left me with much time to go on the computer let alone write on this site. I also don’t know if it’ll get any better after I’m done training this Friday, but we’ll see. Chances are I won’t be able to post updates very often at all. What I’m gonna be looking for is someone who can write for the site and do updates to more or less replace me. If anyone is interested, please send me an e-mail. I’ll of course will still be providing the hosting.

Adventure by Souleye Review

Introduction: So Souleye decided to release some new music. Well, yesterday (Jan 10th 2012) was that day. Well, granted, it’s not ALL new music, it’s still stuff that hasn’t been released by Souleye in a proper form before. I usually get pretty excited when Souleye comes out with new music as I loved the VVVVVV soundtrack. You can pick it up at Souleye’s site for $10 USD and preview it at his bandcamp page.

Notes: The mass majority of the album is either chip-tunes or quasi-chip-tunes.

Desi Leaves Town Official Soundtrack Review

4238395044-1 tmb


Short Announcement: To help with reviews, I have joined a Toastmasters club. The Toastmaster’s club have specific programs to help people improve on their reviewing techniques, so I will be taking part in that every Monday night from now on.

Cornelis Jordan sent me an e-mail telling me that on January 8th, he released the soundtrack for the game Desi Leaves TownDesi Leaves Town seems to be a half movie half puzzle game hybrid with witty dry upper class humour thrown in, which right now is only for iPad but should be coming out for PC/Mac this month. The Desi Leaves Town official soundtrack can be procured at Cornelis Jordan’s bandcamp page here.

Other Site Changes

After having conversations with a few people, there’s a few things that will be getting changed on the site and a few things I’d like to talk about.

Fro changes. I’ve noticed and people are starting to point out that I give out a lot of 3s. Some of this has to do with my rating system as my score keepers (aka my music players) only let me give half stars and I’m usually too lazy to keep track of more finer points. Another thing that is doing this is that I usually choose either soundtracks or albums I like or OSTs that have just come out and forgo reviewing OSTs that would generally get a bad score.So what I’ll be doing from now is changing to a 10 point system and that proves not versatile enough, a 100 point system like Metacritic.
