Battle Bards Episode 140: Piano piano!

    
3

It’s one of the most powerful and versatile of musical instruments, and now the piano is getting its own featured show here on Battle Bards! The crew re-assembles, not to avenge, but to uplift beautiful, striking, and moving piano themes from MMORPGs. So tickle the ivories with Syl, Steff, and Syp as they listen to today’s signature tracks.

Battle Bards is a biweekly podcast that alternates between examining a single MMO’s soundtrack and exploring music tracks revolving around a theme. MOP’s Justin co-hosts with bloggers Steff and Syl. The cast is available on iTunesGoogle PlayTuneInPocket CastsStitcher, and Player.FM.

Thanks for the playlist Justin. <3
Listening to musics in games, I realized recently (playing The Division 2 to be honest, the music in this game is <3 <3 ) that we, gamers, are somehow spoiled today.
There's not a game without great music, at least it will be difficult to name one, as even the smallest indie game often has amazing OSTs (Undertale is great example). And we got accustomed to this fact, and don't always take time to realize how lucky we are ^^

Another great episode. I love a good piano song but never really seemed to notice them in MMOs before. Actually listening to a good piano song now from Art of Noise (not game related).
