As most gamers my age, I am absolutely in love with nearly every aspect of the Square classic Chrono Trigger. The game originally launched on the SNES in 1995, and essentially decimated all competitors to the RPG throne. One of the reasons this game is so well regarded is the unbelievable breadth, style, and memorability of the soundtrack. Yasunori Mitsuda was the composer for Chrono Trigger, which was the first game he ever headed in such a major capacity.
The video above is a 2008 rendition of Wind Scene from the Chrono Trigger soundtrack by 8 Bit Instrumental, from their album The Number of the Bit. 8 Bit Instrumental is a group of Brazilian musicians who have spent years arranging amazing live renditions of classic video game themes. Relax and let the sounds of Chrono Trigger sooth you before that next big boss battle.

In the premiere episode of ReZonance Review, the Elder Scrolls: Skyrim soundtrack is under the microscope. Rez discusses the atmosphere of the music, as well as how it fares as a stand alone album. What is his verdict for the immense original score to the wildly popular game for PS3 and 360?
Watch the video, and find out.
I wish I could add more about the Skyrim soundtrack myself, but unfortunately that can not be. As a person that is daunted by lengthy games, I have yet to venture into Skyrim, nor any other Elder Scrolls title to date. There is something quite scary these days when a video game tells me I will have hundreds of hours of enjoyment. For a person like myself who prefers to dive into something voraciously, then discard it a week later, sinking months of leisure time into one title is not the way I get my video game fix these days.
What I also don't tend to enjoy these Hollywood, high-production atmospheric scores. They are too reminiscent of forgettable movie scores, and like Rez states in the video, can sometimes lead to easily forgettable music. Admittedly though, I would love to see and hear Dragonborn performed live by a symphony.

ReZ Reviews Skyrim. Music in games can be all over the place, but if one word describes Skyrim, it'd be legendary! Skyrim's the first to go up, so you'll see where i put it on the scoreboard
