An interesting past for Skyrim’s composer!

I just thought I would make a quick post about something interesting I found out about today! So I’m someone who really enjoys video game soundtracks, it’s used to create an atmosphere for multiple situations, as does the same for movies and many other entertainment mediums that benefit from a score.

For example everyone knows the Star Wars theme that John Williams did, along with countless other timeless pieces created for the galaxy far far away. Many people who has indulged in gaming knows of Jeremy Soule and his score for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, but what many are less aware of is another group of 5 games he composed more scores for. Surprisingly, it was for a licensed game, made from a book series that would later on have movie adaptations of that were all major successes. I’m talking about Harry Potter!

Yes! Turns out he composed the video game adaptations of Sorcerer’s Stone, Chamber of Secrets, Prisoner of Azkaban, and Goblet of Fire! In addition he also composed the score for the Quidditch spin off title. These games were first made actually before the movies came out, so they mostly go off of the book for all its source material, so it’s art style is very similar to the early art made for the original books, in addition the games even have Peeves the Poltergeist, who played a major role in the books, but never made it into the movies, and of course the biggest change being Jeremy Soule composing the score instead of John Williams.

What do you all think about finding out about Jeremy Soule’s early composer days for Harry Potter? Want me to review the games? Let me know in the comment section, and I’ll see you all later!

The first post of my blog, and Shadow of The Colossus!

Hey there to anyone who stumbled upon my blog, welcome to The E-Sport Players Club! I’m Night Ninja, and my part here is to provide reviews, articles, and news to any and all gamers out there! I’m someone who has been a gamer most my life, thanks to my first console the PlayStation 2 back in the day and growing a little bit up on the original Nintendo Entertainment System, although I am someone who will be focusing on all the generations and platforms I can! Speaking of which, you can expect a review of Shadow of The Colossus, since the remake is now out on PlayStation 4.

Now, what kind of a gamer am I?

Some may ask. Well, I am someone who can at the end of the day enjoy a great variety of genres and games, but my personal preference is RPGs. Some of my favorite game series are RPGs, like Kingdom Hearts, Final Fantasy, even Fallout and The Elder Scrolls. I am someone who is known to be very outspoken about my opinions and views, including the recently noticeable¬†industry greed that has surfaced thanks to big publishers like EA, if you’d like to hear more about the greed of the industry, please go check out my first article on the site here! I am also someone who has a great interest in Japanese animation, also known as Anime, so you can expect me to be giving reviews on various anime games, including the likes of Naruto, Bleach, Dragon Ball, FullMetal Alchemist, Sword Art Online, and many others as time goes on.

Whats my goal?

 

To offer reviews and other various gaming information and news to the general public in an accessible way, but I will be tackling both old and new games, so for anyone who is looking for something older than the current generation, you can count on me to give any thoughts and opinions about games even going back to the Atari 2600! You can probably expect me to be also giving a great deal of focus to the PS2 as well with its vast library with plenty of titles also available on other platforms and generations, and if you are curious about my thoughts on something specific? Please leave a comment below and give requests for specific consoles, games, or accessories. With that, I’d like to thank you for taking the time for reading this post, and I hope you enjoy your visit at The¬†E-Sport Players Club!
