I've been listening to the PAYDAY2 soundtrack a lot recently.

 

This song was introduced in the Hoxton's Revenge Heists, where we finally find out who sold Hoxton out and got him thrown in jail. Imagine the scene, you go to a witness protection house and find loads of incriminating evidence been collated while your informant has locked himself inside a safe. Feds are pouring in every window and hall and you're trying your best to bundle up all the evidence, kill the rat and then escape via a chopper from the roof. It's intense.

 

 

 

Does this sound sort of familiar? Because it should. Le Castle Vania did a lot of the soundtrack for John Wick. This is just as kick ass as those tunes.

 

 

What ties 4 clowns, the Russian Mafia, a bust up motel home to a meth lab and an underground safe, a soviet computer from the 70's, a DeLoreon full of coke and a million cops trying to stop it all from spilling over? Answer: This audio awesome.

 

 

Running through the streets trying to cut your gang a path through the swarms of cops, orders shouted and warnings strained to get over the mix of sirens, gunshots and the general domestic terrorism the PAYDAY gang have gotten themselves into.

 

 

The Russians need dealing with, and if you deal with them quick enough you might be able to stop the cunt flushing millions of dollars worth of coke down the toilet.

 

 

PAYDAY 2's soundtrack sounds like boss music for every track.

This is a random one because it's a licensed track, but for me it captured everything Need for Speed Most Wanted was about.

 

 

From start to finish it's so energetic, has a great beat, and an awesome bridge that leads into a super-bouncy chorus. It's like they pulled a race apart and distilled it into a song, and I think of hammering through races every time I hear the track.

Ah GTA V... Nothing like rolling down the coast in a convertible with the sun glinting off your bonnet and this bad boy turned all the way up:

 

 

Genuinely not kidding either. I thought this was a fantastic addition to the soundtrack.

Just wanna point out my phone loaded the videos wrong somehow and where Sly posted Payday 2 songs were just a bunch of JRPG songs from the last page.  I thought a mod had took the piss!

I'll add some more for the podcast.

 

 

I love this piece from Shin Megami Tensei IV.  It's the music to one of the underground stations that humans live in since demons roam the overworld.  Well, usually you have some dark kinda lowkey music in these places because everyone is living a hard life in a subway station.  But here, it's all uptempo, because all the humans are dead and in my head cannon the demons living here are partying.

 

 

Furi is a game largely forgotten.  I loved it when it came out as a free PS+ game but I put it to the side for a while, and as much as I like it it is hard as nails, and in a way most games aren't so it's very hard to go back to.  I am thinking of paying for the Switch version and dedicating my time to it properly.  It's a really cool game.

 

 

Being cool and dropping some original Nier.

We're over nine months since Mario Odyssey came out and this isn't here:

 

 

It's obvious but it's gotta be mentioned.

It was, and it was used in the Mario special, volume 4. Mark posted it, so it’s not in the thread anymore.

Ha, that should bring back memories of good times for @Sly Reflex and @smallofbooty...

 

I genuinely have no memory of this track. Probably because I avoided it every time it cropped up and changed the channel?

I always used to beep the horn of whatever I was driving to the tune, if you were in my car you'd have been made listen to it.😄
