  • Blog Post: How Meaningful Are Sound Effects To You?

    Halo 4 releases today, and while it’s being praised for things like the combat, the multiplayer, and the graphics, it is also getting an uncommon amount of praise for its sound effects.

    Tossing in an old Sonic title for an episode of Replay has been a long time coming. I just never thought the first one we'd play would be Sonic Adventure.
