This week on Battle Bards, we finally get away from singling out one MMO to doing another theme show: city tunes!  What tales do these virtual metropolises have to tell through music?  The bards are kicking up their feet in their home towns and telling their favorite memories that these songs evoke!

(Apologies on the sound quality in spots -- we had a devil of a time recording this due to several power outages!)

  • What a great Idea for a podcast.... absolutely love game/movie soundtracks... nice to see others who love them to! LotRO one of my favorite game, and Tudors (any Trevor Morris) some of my favorite show, and How to Train Your Dragon absolute best Movie soundtrack.. so this fits right in... oh and oddly enough.. I'm an ex-lotro player returning to rift with some gw2 in between! lol
