Baldur's Gate - ??? (this isn't Gorion's music, I don't think)

That is also the main theme of the E3 BG2 trailer.

Baldur's Gate - ??? (this isn't Gorion's music, I don't think)

 

It's the Gorion battle music, that plays when the 'Armored figure' (I think that's the euphemism used) attacks you.

 

In a semi-related note, I haven't had bg1 installed in a while, but I seem to remember there was a fairly epic battle tune playing at and about the final confrontation in the temple. For some reason I can't seem to find that on teh y0utub35 or anywhere else for that matter? Did I just imagine it, am I going nuts, or did the Shadow Wights* get it?

Really?! When

Gorion gets off'd

, you mean? Yikes, I need a replay. I thought it might've played during Sarevok's Temple beat down.

 

Yes. And no, you're probably thinking about the second song I mentioned or something.

 

It actually took me quite a while to realise that Gorion and Minsc had the same voice actor. Mad skillz, indeed.

 

Or maybe it's just the epic audio compression. :)

 

Edit: I'm not as sure as I was, to be honest. That sounds way too epic for a one-sided struggle. :p

"Alright, I've been thinking. When life gives you lemons, don't make lemonade - make life take the lemons back! Get mad! I don't want your damn lemons, what am I supposed to do with these? Demand to see life's manager. Make life rue the day it thought it could give Cave Johnson lemons. Do you know who I am? I'm the man who's gonna burn your house down! With the lemons. I'm going to to get my engineers to invent a combustible lemon that burns your house down!"

You make it sound like Barber's Adagio was made for Homeworld. Also, I don't really like how they upped the tempo in Homeworld's version. It gimps the sorrow it's supposed to transmit.

Of course I'm aware the soundtrack is a lot older than Homeworld, which is why I only posted it now. I wondered if it actually counted.

 

EDIT: I prefer the faster tempo. In terms of game themes with only a choir, I guess this one "counts" more. Chandelier - To All Things. Not as chilling as Adagio for Strings, unfortunately.

In 7th grade, I teach the students how Chuck Norris took down the Roman Empire, so it is good that you are starting early on this curriculum.

This thread is about games' music... :ermm:

 

Role play games for me, and with a distinctive lust in combat, such as Jedi Knight series, WITH BLASTERS and a plot, I damn hate CoD and Halo, I like Mortal Kombat though.

'Theme' is an ambiguous word DN :)

 

You are right though, reading the beginning of the thread sort of hints heavily at it being about game music and not game genre :ermm:

Oh I loved when QfG4 did this

 

Those were some special nights.

 

I'm somewhat confused by Aubrey Hodges but I absolutely adore QfG4's soundtrack.

 

Conquests of Longbow theme

 

Glastonbury Tor from Conquests of Camelot

 

I just love that Conquests series musical feeling. I guess that's all Mark Seibert. Anyway, something from non-Sierra too.

 

 

I generally prefer the colder disturbing touch of Serpent Isle, but I just couldn't find it. Oh well...

 

 

I loved how Ultima Underworld II was a midquel between U7 and Serpent Isle. All those interesting worlds... that LSD-inspired world for example, and such a tragic undertone to it. Back when Guardian seemed to be cool. Unfortunately that arc was ended in a most dissapointing way possible. Oh well.

Enough with the dancing clown.
