31 Days - Day 8: The Dormitory


Hello everyone and welcome to day 8 of 31 days, a series that is effectively a celebration of everything spooky in games. Today’s Song is:

Resident Evil 0: Dormitory - main theme

If there is one thing Resident Evil has nailed consistently through the years is its music. It is interesting to think how something as simple as a song can unnerve us, even if nothing is going on immediately in front of us. Think for a moment, you could be walking alone or even at your own home at night. You know there is nothing there and that none of this shit is real. Even so I bet you most people would run for a light switch if this shit started playing.

I wonder if this is it something primal within us that causes this fear, or is it just cumulative experience over the years that allows our mind to wander just enough to creep us out. Maybe it’s both, who knows honestly. Either way between its music and visuals RE:0 stands as one of the great classic horror games of its time; still holding up well to this day. The REmake of 0 also highlights this quite well : RA8D-N6NH-A224 (PS4).

Also I would like to take a moment to point out that Rebecca went through this shit twice between 0 and 1. That has to be some of the worst luck you could ever hope to have. Another thing I've always wondered about 0 is the fate of Billy Cohen. What ever happened to the guy? 7 games later and we still don't know a thing.

About Agent9one of us since 12:45 PM on 04.13.2010

Who is Agent9? The not so secret agent of the destructoid community.

A Few things about me

- I'm almost finished with my degree in computer science and I plan on going into independent development and freelancing once I'm done.

- I can be very cynical, but I do try to be positive or curb my negativity. In spite of this I'm actually very jovial in person and I don't get mad often. I would dare say I'm quite happy, even when things seem bleak. I simply don't like industry Bullshit and I'm not one to stand for it, even if it's a game I like.

- I host a series annually called 31 Days where I post 1 horror related or themed video game song a day for the month of october. During this time I also provide keys for games (free of course) to any reader observant enough to find them.

- I've been a member of destructoid since 2010, and a lurker long before then. As such I've seen many people both come and go. Such is the natural order of things.

- I enjoy Art and draw in my spare time

- I also enjoy theatre and films. I especially like Horror movies (both good and bad ones).

- I go camping once or twice a year. I would go out more but my allergies tend to get in the way.

- I don't drink, which may be a surprise to some. I might make a joke or two about it but I stay away from alcohol for my own personal reasons, though you can feel free to drink a pint on my behalf any time you'd like.

This is a commission I had done for me by Inquisitive Ravenclaw. You should check out his site if you like the following piece

I also got a musical piece made for me by the incredible Alphadeus. A little history behind this:

My musical piece came as part of the Songs for Gamers album DLC pack 02. Alphadeus has been making songs for the members of the destructoid community for years already. This past year he opened submissions and I applied. For my meagre efforts I received this lovely piece:

You can find him on youtube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCFs2UhJYPVITYWCiqMk-z3w

He also has other venues listed on his profile here, take a look if you are so inclined:

The community is full of people with all kinds of talent and I'm very pleased to be a part of it along with all of you (yes, you too fair reader).
