From "The Witcher" to GTA: how music works in games and what is the most popular soundtrack

Games can't be imagined without a proper soundtrack. It doesn't matter if it's ambient royalty free music from Journey or pop radio from GTA V . We explain how game composers use sound to immerse the gamer in the experience and talk about the best game soundtracks according to Spotify. How did music in games come about and how is it different from cinematic music? Soundtracks in games were introduced back in the 1980s. Back then, the hardware capabilities of computers and consoles did

Twilit Art

heyaa Sorry that I've been dead, just finished up applying for schools and what not so that's been boring. BUT I did get a new drawing tablet which works really nicely and is a major upgrade from my old one!! I like the brushes I've been experimenting with too   Anyway, have a spiffy twilight drawing I did, probably gonna do the rest of the Mane 6 as well and maybe some other characters since I got a month of freedom now. (You can also find this drawing on my DeviantArt and

Nimble Nap

Just a small doodle of my OC Nimble Rain chillin out on a cloud. I always like doodling her, shes got like a comfort character vibe. I originally wasn't gonna color it, but I decided to do a little extra. Maybe I'll put out a more polished piece soon? who knows.

Made a thing!

I dunno if this is a hot take, but I actually love bases! They're like advanced coloring pages for the computer!! I use them mostly for getting quick ideas out for when I don't wanna do a whole thing and paper really isn't getting the point across. I will probably post my actual art on here at some point but for now here's this little thing I threw together for me and my partner's ponysonas!     That's my character Moontea and his character Pixel Paws! I am in awe of all of t

How to Get a Griffon in Three Minutes (jointy w/SteelEagle)

The following is a short chat RP between Silverstream and Gallus that serves as a result of the events in Expert Teas and as a prelude to How to Lose a Griffon in Three Days, starring @SteelEagle and @Hippo.       Gallus allowed himself a few moments of daydreaming as he fluttered about the school, lost in his train of thought. or trains of thought. Elsewhere, somewhere else, for sure. And not at all prepared for somecreature jumping in front of him and screaming. It had been

Rumors, and the Love that Follows It. (Discord Jointy w/SteelEagle)

Crickets were chirping in the bushes as Remington arrived and waited by the edge of the Everfree forest for his fillyfriend to meet him. This was the right time, right? He thought to himself. Remington had lost his overly nervous attitude about spending time with the filly, but his heart still fluttered a little when she was included in whatever he was doing. It had been a week or so since they had started officially dating. In terms of the environment of the classroom, their relationship was no

Hippo Week Day 9: Zap Apple

My OC Zap Apple is 3 and a half years old now, seems like yesterday he was a newborn foal. Though it seems likely the intention within the universe of Equestria in the show was that foals were like elementary kids and the students in the school of friendship are around teenage years, I have been thinking about how I want to age Zap for the future. He may never see older ages simply because we don't typically RP that much in the future, but because of how Season 9 ended, and how I have been build

Hippo Week Day 8: Revamped RP Log

It was a task, but I finally simplified and reset all the linkage and images on my RP log to reflect my RP experience on this forum. It's been quite a journey. It's kind of bewildering how many threads I've been involved in, how many different people I wrote stories with, and how far some of my OCs have gone, even the ones I wasn't planning on taking very far.   In all of my threads that are not active, I have posted in character about 1,300 times, and this is not including posts in 10

Hippo Week Day 7: Private threads!

Today I'm taking a break from the mind-numbing task of RP history logging and going back into the best part: Posting Ponies! I have started two new threads for one-on-one opportunities. First a thread with PrinceBlueblood where I can start using my new zebra student!   Second, a new user by the name of SparkSan is starting a new story with her new OC and my Granola Gracie. Hello and welcome to the family, Spark! And finally, I have resurrected a thread with PyroBlaze in t

Hippo Week Day 6: Revamping RP Log (part 1)

I want to do the dirty work of revamping my heavily neglected RP log. But in order to do that, I realized the best way was to reflect on all the posts I made on Canterlot.com. Yes, all of them. It's taking more time than I realized crunching the numbers and filing all of them together so that they are organized by character and activity. I can't believe how much pony I have posted. So many stories. So many friends. So many memories. Seeing these old threads with old friends really touched me and

Hippo Week Day 5: New thread, open to all WoE!

Introducing my latest open thread, Fluttershy is opening up her sanctuary to visitors, but for only one day. She wants to use this time in order help outsource her care of animals to others, that they might also find meaning in the critters around them. What could happen in this thread? Here are some examples:   Pet adoption Caring for sick pets Visitors helping care for animals Animals causing mischief Possibly other things!

Hippo Week Day 4: New Characters!

Today I have worked on and finished two new character applications for World of Equestria role play. I've been wanting to make these for a while, and finally got them on paper.  So here they are. Introducing: Zareb the zebra, and Sky Beak the hippogriff!

Hippo Week Day 3: Jointies

For my third day of Hippo week, I'd like to honor my B.P.R.P.F.F. (Best Pony Role Play Friend Forever), SteelEagle.  Over the years, him and I have posted many ponies, and occasionally did so in the form of text chat. This allowed us to react to each other in a different, more immediate way, as well as add some story fill to other role players in threads that require some dialogue to expand the scope of the narrative. We did it when it called for it, but mostly we did it because it's really fun!

Hippo Week Day 2: "Singles"

((The following is an interlude to the story thread here in which Remington takes off for gym class before meeting with his fillyfriend Moonlight later that evening.))     When Remington arrived at the gym, he went into the stallion's locker room to change out of his uniform and into his more athletic appropriate clothing. Not that it would make much of a difference for him. He wasn't very athletic, but like most ponies that would endure a gym class like this one, he would on

Hippo Week Day 1: Back to Life

Back to Life a short story inspired by "Back to Life" by Sam Synthis   A light blue pegasus fell from the sky. The atmosphere was partly cloudy sunny skies, but the stallion seemed lifeless and immobile. His eyes were closed and his wings unfolded, only being moved by the air around him as he plummeted. No one else was around. It's not understood why he is falling. Was he knocked out? Did he fall asleep? The ground kept growing nearer and nearer underneath him, without a sign o

Stellar Artifacts

Artefact sat lounged in his oversized luxury armchair, looking into his fireplace. He sighed and took a sip of his hot cocoa. Art had been alone in his large house for several years, now. His father had passed away, leaving him the house as well as the Crystalle Family business. However, all the bits in the world didn't mean much when he was all alone. The grandfather clock chimed the half hour. Tonight was Hearthswarming Eve, but for the seventh time, he'd be spending it by himself. He felt a

Griffon Lore.

This came about based off what I've seen from the show and is meant to counter the idea that Griffons are represented in fanon sometimes as part of a warrior empire.   Griffons are highly independent creatures that have no significant form of a society of their own. Their once prosperous kingdom fell during the reign of King Guto when the Idol of Boreas was forever lost. Griffonstone is the last remnants of what could be considered Griffon society, but it is merely just a hotspot for G

Changeling Origins.

This was brought to me over the question: Why do the changelings feed off of emotions and stuff? The original deceptive predatory nature of the Changeling seemed pointless when the Changelings could have just integrated themselves with the pony society. It's such predatory nature that is the reason why they were feared by ponies in the first place.    Changelings weren't always, well, Changelings. They were originally known as "Love Bugs," living in conjunction with the ponies. They lo

House Of Horrors

I believe I promised an explanation of what I've been up to. Well, here it is! I know; a bad start. But bear with me.~     Though I've lived in the same city for my whole life, I've moved 3 times. Times are tough. Anyway, the second move by far put me in the worst situation. My grandmother and I moved in with my aunt and one of my cousins. Things were fine at first. We got along, had fun, and were civil to each other. I can't remember the moment everything went wrong; frankly, just men

Just Visiting

I had avoided watching any of Season 8 because I just didn't care much for the show anymore, well that and I no longer have access to Discover Family.  However, I took time today to watch episodes from that season and I must admit, they were pretty good.   NOT saying that I have my full enthusiasm for MLP again, but at least I feel good viewing this latest season.   Shows are hard to find on YT, guess Hasbro changed their policy on them since last season.   Oh well,
