Cleverly Used Soundtracks [11:11]

There are plenty of truly wonderful gaming soundtracks out there which can contribute immensely to our personal gaming experiences. I see so many posts on Twitter about great OSTs whether it be appreciation posts, discussions or favourites lists; this topic is certainly a common one – with good reason. However, whenever I see talk of soundtracks, it always seems to be about how well they are written or how suited they are to the game. This is [11:11] after all, so I thought I’d address the topic with a slightly different outlook. As I have a musical background myself, the way music is used in gaming is a topic I’m particularly fond of, so I racked my brains to think of 11 games that have a unique type of soundtrack and / or use of music – the kind that incorporates into the game itself, or those that really go the extra mile to fit into the game’s requirements.

Monthly Summary: June 2019

Can you even believe half of 2019 has gone already?! There’s so many games I want to play but so little time! The Steam Summer Sale is also live right now up until the 9th of July, so I’m sure I’ll be making some more purchases within the next week to add to the ever-growing backlog. As per usual, here’s what I’ve been up to this month:

E3 2019: Personal Highlights

I’m not ashamed to admit that I’ve never understood all the hype for E3. This year has been no different. Since my blog is all about gaming, I do feel like I need to comment somewhat on which announcements I’m looking forward to, but this post will certainly be different to a lot of other coverage out there. Expect a few unpopular opinions in this one folks.

Memorable Games From My Childhood [11:11]

Welcome back to another [11:11] post! So far I’ve talked about Games I Loved But Never Finished and JRPGs I Wish I Had Time To Play, so this time I thought I’d revisit the past and choose a selection of games I used to love when I was growing up.

Monthly Summary: May 2019

With another month almost over, it’s time once again to review my monthly gaming progress for May. I’m tweaking the format for my Monthly Summary posts slightly from now on as I felt my categories were becoming a little repetitive. It hasn’t changed a great deal from before, but I’m hoping this will work out better in the long run.

#AniMay [11:11] – The Subseries

Welcome to the first bonus episode of [11:11] especially for #AniMay! After seeing a few posts on Twitter, I decided I really wanted to make my own anime list and thought fitting it into [11:11] would be a cool idea. However, I ideally wanted this series to revolve around gaming so I’ve decided to add in an extra post as part of a subseries (which may receive additional chapters later in the year).

Although I like to keep my blog focus specifically on gaming, I do like to talk about other interests I have such as anime and music every now and then. Since I enjoyed doing the 30 Day Anime Challenge last year, I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to revisit the topic.
