BGM Mode is back with volume 2 of the best game music of 2012. Today, we’ve got Paul’s picks.
#5: Soulcalibur V
It’s been an auspicious year for fighting games–can you imagine the reaction just a few years ago if someone predicted that in one year, we’d see new iterations of nearly every major fighting franchise? That’s exactly what happened in 2012, and I’ve got to give credit to the latest in my favorite fighting series: Soulcalibur. Despite some skepticism over new gameplay mechanics and a dramatically different character roster, SCV emerged as one of the series’ strongest entries and even appeared to gain back some respect from the arcade circuit. Best of all: No Star Wars characters in sight.
Are you proud to call yourself a gamer? On this week’s show, we’re talking about how Nintendo’s recent ads and Maine’s Republican Party both seem to think it’s something to be ashamed of.
We’ll also revisit The Great Gaming Debate (with provocative new questions from the VGH community!) and weigh in on Tokyo Jungle and Inversion.
We had planned to do a show inspired by this week’s Presidential Debate but we ended up talking about how much we love Borderlands 2 and XCOM: Enemy Unknown for an hour instead. Hope you don’t mind.
We’ve also got Viewer Mail, a winner in our LittleBigPlanet Vita contest, Netflix recommendations, and more!
