As soon as I began to play the original GOW I realized that there was something about the game’s blend of action and tactics that set it apart from all other games in the genre. Over the years I’ve beaten both GOW campaigns with a wide various friends, family, and strangers, and still find the experience to be deeply satisfying. While some of the systems introduced in the original GOW were still in their relative infancy, the overall Gears experience was always spectacular. After playing a lot of Gears 3 over the past week I can honestly say that the Gears 1 and 2 were just an appitizer for the feast that is Gears of War 3.
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.
