Xenoblade Chronicles 2 Ending Theme – One Last You (Yasunori Mitsuda) Piano Cover

I’m going to be trying something a tad different today. I’ve never really considered uploading my video game music piano covers to the site, because part of me has always felt like it was too much of the whole self-promotion thing, and that it might be unfair.

Music and Composition Across the Decades: A Chat With Yasunori Mitsuda

For JRPG fans, the name Yasunori Mitsuda may ring a few bells. For others, he might as well be a household name.

Xenoblade Chronicles 2 Was Fundamentally Better Than Breath of the Wild

Opener  Look, let’s get this out of the way right now. My title, to you, is going to read a lot like clickbait bullshit, but I am prepared to argue this through to the bitter end here. There’s going to be a lot of spoilers in both of these game here, so if you haven’tContinue reading “Xenoblade Chronicles 2 Was Fundamentally Better Than Breath of the Wild”

Xenoblade Chronicles 2 Review (Switch)

Definitely the largest role-playing game on the Switch as of yet, Xenoblade Chronicles 2 is an ambitious game that puts the Switch to a unique test.
