As a bit of a disclaimer, I'm a big fan of city builders, so I've tried quite a few of them. While I can't say City Life is among my favourites, there were quite a few interesting things about it. Among those is the soundtrack, and in particular the main menu theme. I had forgotten just how funky and jazzy this song was, but I'm happy to have rediscovered it.

I love video game soundtracks. They can bring back so many memories!

 

I've just started a new game of XCOM 2. The Squad Loadout music gets me pumped!

Absolutely. Often times it's not necessarily the gameplay that makes me want to play a certain game again, but the soundtrack. Stuff like Building Mode 3 from The Sims or Dire, Dire Docks from Super Mario 64 make me want to jump back in, even if the graphics may not have aged too gracefully.

 

As for the XCOM2 track, I really enjoy it! I was trying to think why the original game in the series (UFO: Enemy Unknown / X-COM: Enemy Defense) sounded so familiar and I think I found out why. Having collected quite a few issues of a local gaming magazine, I remember UFO: Aftermath being offered for free (on double CD and maybe DVD too). I've been debating whether to jump into XCOM, but it's a tad intimidating to be honest. The only thing I have played and enjoyed that maybe comes close to it in genre is Civ 5, but I think the similarities between the two end at both being turn-based. 

 

By the way, saw in a different thread, but derped out: congrats on the new gig! :D

Maybe there is an article  to be written about such ideas like game soundtracks? They can invoke such strong emotions, to the point where even if the graphics of a game don't age gracefully the music continues to take us back. Or maybe it's a subject more for the forums, I'm just spitballing.

 

And thanks for the congrats! I'm really excited about the new prospect. Indeed, while I walk to work tomorrow I may play the Squad Loadout to really psych me up for the upcoming challanges! :laugh:

I went to a festival back in August and heard these guys. I couldn't help myself, I had to buy both albums and I'm probably listening to them once a week or so:

      Apple Music TV brings a 24-hour music video streaming service for free in the U.S.
      by Abhay Venkatesh



      Apple today launched ‘Apple Music TV’, a new 24-hour free music streaming service in the U.S. that serves up a constant stream of music videos and other related content such as “exclusive new music videos and premieres, special curated music video blocks, and live shows and events as well as chart countdowns and guests”. The service is being made available on the Apple Music and Apple TV apps.

      Apple Music TV can be found in the Browse tab of the apps and premiered this morning with the top 100 songs streamed in the U.S. on Apple Music. The platform also serves as a launchpad for new content. On October 22, the service will stream a celebration of Bruce Springsteen's “Letter to You” album that includes an interview by Zane Lowe, Apple Music’s radio station anchor, and “a special livestream fan event”.

      On Friday, October 23, there will be two new “exclusive video premieres” at 9 AM PT that include Joji’s “777” and Saint Jhn’s “Gorgeous”. The company adds that the channel will premier new videos every Friday during that time.

      The firm also says in the announcement that its original content like concert films, interviews, and documentaries will also "have a home on Apple Music TV”. The service looks to be aimed at rivals such as YouTube and Vevo. It will be interesting to see how the Cupertino giant expands Apple Music TV and what other content makes it to the platform.

      iOS users can finally add music to their Snaps
      by Usman Khan Lodhi

      Snapchat tested the ability to add popular music in Snaps in New Zealand and Australia and promised the feature would be brought to more regions this fall. The firm is now making good on that promise, as it has added a new music feature called 'Sounds' which lets users add songs that will play alongside their posts. The feature is presently available to all iOS users globally, and it is not known when it would be rolling out on Android devices.

      Users can add a music clip to their snap after browsing through a selection of songs, and when their friends view the snap, they can swipe up to view information about the song or open it in a streaming app.

      For now, there are limited tracks available, including Justin Beiber's "Lonely" that is being featured exclusively in the app. Though the music selection on Snap isn't as extensive as users would find on Instagram or TikTok, Snap signed multi-year deals with music labels, so the firm can add to its catalog over time.

      Snap is also working on letting users create custom sounds to add to their stories, and the feature will be "rolling out globally in the coming months."

If you’ve not used YouTube Music yet, Google says you can find it in the YouTube app on smart TVs.

      Spotify makes it easier to add friends to collaborative playlists
      by Usman Khan Lodhi



      Encouraged by remote collaboration amidst the coronavirus pandemic, Spotify, which recently revealed that it had amassed 138 million paying users, is making a few changes to its Collaborative Playlist feature in an attempt to make it easier to use.

      Spotify believes that Collaborative playlists can help users swap podcast recommendations and latest music discoveries. The changes include the addition of a new Add User button in the playlist header so contributors can be quickly added. Additionally, avatars of all contributors will be displayed in the header, and each track or podcast episode will have the avatar for whoever added it to the playlist.

      To make a Collaborative Playlist, users need to go to Your Library > Playlists and select an existing playlist they want to collaborate on. Using the Add user button in the header, they can make the playlist collaborative, and start inviting their friends through social media, messaging apps, or by copying and pasting the link.

      The firm is also encouraging users to take another step by listening to the "masterpiece" they created using Spotify's Group Session beta feature, which lets users invite up to four friends to join a session to listen to a playlist or a podcast at the same time. However, Group Sessions beta is only available to Premium subscribers.
