Level 36: The Sound Architect, OverAchiever, POTW


Reminder: We have a hangout with Disasterpeace on Monday, August 30 at 4 PM Pacific / 7 PM Eastern. Hope to see you there!

Lots of great stuff on today’s show. Sam Hughes runs a website and podcast called The Sound Architect. We really enjoy his show, and invited him on ours to talk about it. Sam’s also a sound designer and voice actor. It was a pleasure to chat with him!

It’s been awhile since we’ve featured an OverAchiever. An OverAchiever is a human who takes the necessary steps to get all achievements/trophies in a given game. For instance, here’s the trophy list for this year’s Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End. Our friend, Tony Zuniga, just finished that list, earning him a platinum trophy in the game. We talked about that journey and a disappointing end to his attempt to get the platinum in DOOM (2016).

And our Patron of the Week is Abdiwak Yohannes. As usual, I really enjoyed his list of favorite video game tunes. We talked about the first two:

  1. The Musashi Legend” from Brave Fencer Musashi by Tsuyoshi Sakito 2.
  2. The Best is Yet to Come” from Metal Gear Solid by Rika Muranaka3.
  3. Venice Violins” from Tomb Raider 2 by Nathan McCree4.
  4. Always” from Dear Esther by Jessica Curry5.
  5. Overture” from Halo 3: ODST by Martin O’Donnell & Michael Salvatori
