There has been a disturbance in The Force. I am unsure whether the “mainstreaming” of gaming is simply people becoming accepting or a fault line opening up within the industry. Is gaming culture becoming accepted, or have game developers learned how to craft their games and market them in a way so they aren’t perceived is such a negative light?
We here at Nerd Appropriate love us some good chip-tune music (see our Anamanaguchi interview for proof!). What happens when you mix the raw creativity of the Mass Effect 2 soundtrack with the pure fun of 8-bit? The answer… Jimmy Hinson’s Big Giant Circles. BGC’s first full length album, Impostor Nostalgia, boasts over 75 minutes of classic 8-bit inspired music for a mere $3.99. Did we mention the album is pretty damn incredible? Do yourself a favor and head on over to the Big Giant Circles website and pick yourself up a copy… You will not be disappointed. Below you’ll find an embed of the album for your streaming enjoyment… and we maaaay be giving away a few copies to some lucky readers.
