Five songs to go WoW!31.05.2010
I originally wanted to post a bit about Blizzard intentionally breaking the AVR mod in their next patch, but I’m still tinkering with ENB while also being a bit short of time to play. I’ll probably make my configurations available here once I’m happy with them, in case anybody is interested. The screenshots from yesterday are already outdated – I love tinkering with configuration files too much.
So instead, I turn once again to the shared topic of BlogAzeroth.
This week, it is “Tell us your favourites”.
I admit, I am one of those people who almost immediately turn of any in-game music because I find it almost always is distracting and getting on my nerves with the eventual repetitiveness. Most of the time, I play completely without music, just the sound effects. However, on the occasions that I do want to hear some background music, I turn to iTunes and my own collection. I even have a few playlists specifically to go with some games – I guess that sort of defeats the point of not having the repetitions of the original in-game music, doesn’t it?
Anyway, to finally get to the list – my top five songs to listen to while playing World of Warcraft include:
- Lordi – Bite It Like A Bulldog
- Rammstein – Los
- Manowar – Warriors Of The World
- Doro And Warlock – All We Are
- Doro And Warlock – Hellbound
Actually, that would be pretty much my dungeon soloing list. In contrast, I would choose the following list for travel or overland questing and farming:
- Blue Öyster Cult – Astronomy
- Lordi – Kalmageddon
- The Inkspots – Maybe / Set The World On Fire
- Counting Crows – Round Here
- The Scorpions – Coast To Coast
The Inkspot songs are the famous intros to Fallout 1 and 3, respectively. Both of which I would rate among my top five RPGs of all time, together with Ultima Underworld 2 and of course Fallout 2. But that list is pretty boring, because it’s only the fifth place that is open for debate – so I’ll save that discussion for another day.
