01:06 - moonflash In other news, a Malaysian plane has "vanished". If the "many worlds interpretation" is true, the exact same sequence of events which happened on lost the tv show is happening to those poor people somwhere in the multiverse O_o
00:55 - Gawain no money for consoles here, if it doesn't come on pc then I won't play it :S
00:53 - !J.O.O.E.! Indeed. I got very addicted to Rogue legacy last year. As for that Xbone game, unless it leaves that system I doubt I'll ever play it.
00:51 - moonflash looks neat, although the xbone exclusive thing sucks. Most Indie games nowadays are way better than big budget titles, "brothers tale of two sons" was my favourite game last year for example over gta, last of us etc
00:49 - Lit. Not exactly on a grand scale of adventure like the ones named, but one game I really liked with a heavy and suspenseful atmosphere was Gone Home. Great game, it's a mod of Amnesia if I remember right.
00:45 - !J.O.O.E.! I think the indie market at the moment is probably the place to look. Lots of abstract, highly stylised and atmospheric games seem to be coming out. This looks amazing: [link] Xbone exclusive..
00:44 - Maco Never cared for shadow of the colossus soundtrack until now, very beautiful.

I still have to review Design The Skyline for the upcoming Lords Of Metal, that will give them a reason to further whinge and whine A truly horrendous album released on the once good Victory Records label.
'Traced in Air' consists of many different layers, and in my view, listening to it more than twice is necessary to pick it apart and give your final 'judgement'. Naturally, tthis album is certainly not to everyone's tastes. There are those who despise the band's excessive use of keyboards and uplifitng melodies, which prove to be a highlight for me. I will admit that i am a big cynic fan, but 'Traced in air' is one of those albums you really have to listen to without distractions. And even then you may or may not like it. It just depends on personal taste i guess. Anyway, i believe cynic are going to get more melodic with everything they release in the future. 'Carbon-based anatomy' is a relatively brave starting point for that path...
I really like this album. It sounds soft and airy but that's appropriate given the themes they chose for their lyrics. Besides this sound is what makes them quite different from many other progressive metal bands and gives them individuality.
And those who buy the CD will get as a bonus impressive artwork made by Robert Venosa which compliments the music really well.
Interesting how the staff is picking on this whereas the atmosphere itself on TiA is just a tiny bit lighter than on Focus. A bit less intense, less sophisticated, but feels more earthly an calming than the precursor. Back then when this came out I also labelled this as a disappointment, but with time I came to like it pretty much.
