    I've always been a fan of Chance Thomas' music. He wrote for many movies and video games.

    A long time ago, he had created music for Middle Earth Online back when it was project funded by Sierra Online Inc. (later sold and renamed LOTRO). He had a personal website with many samples from that time period... many versions of the songs from LOTRO. One in particular... a version of your song with a more strong orchestral presence.

    When I heard he was contracted to write the music scores for Riders of Rohan expansion, I contacted him and asked if he could somehow use the bit of music from his old website... I described it to him. He remembered and said he would see what he could do.

    Lo and behold, his first new song incorporated it!


    He is the greatest! And very accessible to everyone... he answers every email quickly and with grace!

    I remember going into arcades back in the day, and if they had a Dragon's Lair game you could just hear it a midst all the noise and chaos, there was just something so cool about that game.

    Spy Hunter, hands down for me, played too loud through an arcade cabinet speaker.

    Twelve Sky Original Sound Track

    Twelve Sky was a ftp mmorpg, a compact, full out pvp game, very simple in design, but it had everything that players could want in a really fun, fast paced, pvp environment.

    Even though the NA servers were shut down years ago, the original sound track from that game still stays with me & has become a kind of benchmark, that I use to compare other games to.

    The OST was the developer's own in-house production, which was all the more impressive, not only because of it's quality, but also because of the way in which it was used to define the 3 different factions, represented in the game.

    These 3 factions had their own distinct maps until player level 70 & the music was tailor made for each faction, as you moved through these maps, so you really identified with your faction in a much more tangible way.

    As with lots of other games, players still "mourn" the loss of that game. The last remaining server is the original Korean one, but to play there you need a Korean SSN, which I don't recommend anyone using, unless it's their own so... :(

    But if you live in SEA & have legitimate access to one, then it's a game that I would suggest that you try & be prepared to be hooked on, not just for the OST, but for the game itself. :)

    If any of you are interested in sampling some of the OST, then you can easily listen to some of it here, on the Korean site: http://12sky.agame.co.kr/file/ost

    James Bond theme in the Games, made me feel like Bond, James Bond.

    Playing multiplayer on the game cube and camping up in the ceiling using claw (press B), in today's equivalent (COD) camping is a no no, but what did we know then ha ha.
