Music to Slash By - Sound and Music in MMOs
Do you play your favorite online game with the sound cranked up, or are you one of those people who could care less about sound and music? Mercurie talks about sound in MMOs, and music in Vanguard: Saga of Heroes in particular. Will Vanguard's music be good enough to make you want to ditch your MP3 player while you're playing?
"For Vanguard: Saga of Heroes, composer Todd Masten has been hired to write music. Masten has written music for many video and computer games including Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2, Spider-Man, and Crash Nitrokart. One thing that will set Vanguard apart from other games is that developer SigilÂs plan is to add new music with each new expansion and even with patches."
