Episode 38: Bioshock

Hello once again everyone! I come bearing gifts. That is, a fresh playlist for your listening pleasure, should you have happened to miss last week’s episode. We covered the iconic and indisputably outstanding achievement in gaming, the first and most impressive Bioshock. From creator Ken Levine, it spawned one helluva following, in no small part due to the choice of music accompaniment. Similar to Cuphead, Bioshock exudes this aura of 30s, 40s, and 50s vibes, though does so via licensed tracks instead of originals. You’ve likely heard of some of the artists on this list before, but when played in context of the game, it becomes a most memorable experience indeed.

Note that the soundtrack was never sold with the licensed tracks, so clicking through the links below will lead you to a Youtube of those songs. Sorry! And make sure to click through all the brand new chip-based tracks that followed our Bioshock retrospective as well =]

Hope you enjoyed the show and we’ll see you soon for another fresh episode of LAG Radio!
