Shnabubula's Incredible Discography is All Available on Bandcamp

Shnabubula (Samuel Ascher-Weiss) of NYC is hands-down one of my favourite artists ever. Seriously, I think the guy is incapable of producing music I won't immediately love.

But, he writes and performs a lot of creative, original work too! I thought I had a handle on what was out there so far, but this month he surprised me by uploading a ton of previous work to his Bandcamp site.

Want to snag 13 albums worth of some of the greatest chiptune / piano / electronic / experimental / progressive / funk / jazz you'll ever hear, for free? Read on!

Oh Good, I Finished My Dailies!

Being the Guild Wars 2 nut that I am, I just had to share this cute little animation put out by YouTuber MattVisual. There's a bit of blood (nothing major), so if you're not in the mood for the red stuff or are at work, consider yourself warned.

Though it technically pertains to Guild Wars 2 specifically, I'm sure players of any MMORPG will identify.

The Epic Final Fantasy Medleys of Marc Papeghin

I tend to get pretty enthusiastic about new covers of classic game music, but there's no overstating the brilliant work of France's Marc Papeghin.
