Written by Nolan Forth

dragonsdogma

The original Dragon's Dogma could go down as one of the most under-appreciated games of the previous console generation. The Action Role Playing Game from Capcom combined the open world mechanics of some of the best western RPGs with the crazy, over the top narrative sensibilities of the JRPG scene. Capcom just announced that they are working on a new entry in the series; a Free-to-Play online multiplayer RPG called simply…

GameFocus' Most Anticipated Games of 2015

Here at GameFocus we thought we would share some of the games we are stoked to get our hands on in 2015.

GameFocus Feature: Warlords of Draenor and the Clint Bajakian Connection

Music can make or break a movie. The same could be said for videogames. For the last 30 some odd years, as videogames have slowly crept their way into the main stream, we have been beholden to some truly memorable musical contributions that enhance the immersive experience that make video games stand out among entertainment mediums. Imagine the classics like Super Mario without the original level 1-1 theme, or the Mega Man franchise without its awesome 8 bit power ballads. It can’t be done. The same holds true for modern games; imagine the first Mass Effect without the 80’s Sci-Fi movie synth, or Uncharted without the adventurous sounding fanfare. Music and sound design are an integral part of any complete video game package, and game expansions are no exception. Thanks to the involvement of Pyramind Studios Composer and Senior Music Manager Clint Bajakian and his team, World of Warcraft: Warlords of Draenor can count itself up there in the echelon of titles whose OST are worth a second look.
