The name Richard Joseph might not mean much to a lot of people but the theme songs from Cannon Fodder, Sensible World Of Soccer and GODS (to name but a few) will certainly trigger memories. He passed away on Sunday after a short battle with lung cancer, he was 53. :(

I didn't know the guy personally but his work was an integral part of my gaming life for a long time and he definitely inspired many people to get involved in music. I hope Microsoft see fit to dedicate the XBLA release of SWOS to his work. RIP.

  • nostradamus

    nostradamus tech? I dunno, go get some insight of Activision (the good input, not the misogyny), all they COD devs make evident generation leaps tech-wise. Do they keep being the same core IP? I think so. (4 Days ago)

  • nostradamus

    nostradamus so Halo must be thet bottomb of the barrel FPS to keep its identity. Add some negligible subsurface scattering reflections or some other tech only possible now and call it the day copy/pasting the ol (4 Days ago)

  • nostradamus

    nostradamus engines. I mean, If you can have a PS3 Ratchet & Clanck that looks like a vaseline ps3 game, and a PS5 Ratchet&Clack that looks like a goddamn next-gen game, why can't Halo Evolve - Ugly FPS Seal™ (5 Days ago)

  • nostradamus

    nostradamus Halo Infinite sure is one ugly damn game. Pretty obvious nothing is going to massible change if the Ip doesn't die and start from the ground up with another publisher/dev that doesn't retread the ol (5 Days ago)
