Gaming in Stereo: Best of 2012 Day 3
As I stated yesterday Jesper Kyd is one of my favorite video game composers he shined in Borderlands 2. The soundtrack was filled with interesting beats with laid over with guitars that sounded out of the wild west. Anything that dealt with Hyperion had this over bearing electronic feel to it as did with my number 3 song of 2012. Today’s track “Pandora Park” takes place when you are infiltrating Handsome Jack’s Wildlife Exploitation Preserve. Jack had just captured Mordecai’s pet bird, Bloodwing. What happens after you fight Bloodwing is down right low, but this game had an incredible way to make you hate Jack, but yet love him at the same time. The deep bass drops come out of no where and just made my time at the Preserve special. I love the soundtrack to this game, but this song made me hunt down the soundtrack to find this song in particular. The game itself is fantastic and couldn’t recommend it higher, the only thing stopping this song and game from being my favorites of the year are what the next two days have in store. Enjoy “Pandora Park”!
