Monster Boy and the Cursed Kingdom is has to be the best indie title on the Nintendo Switch. FDG Entertainment hit a home run with this game, and has given gamers an awesome game. With 45 hours of gameplay clocked in, I will confidently say it is well worth the $40 price tag. I would suggest purchasing this game on the Nintendo Switch over the other consoles, only for the ability to take this game anywhere. If you enjoyed this review, let me know in the comments down below!
The Xenoblade Chronicles X Original Soundtrack, is often overlooked, due to it being on the Wii U. I appreciate Monolith Soft's sense of creativity, range, and overall arrangement when it comes to their songs. Xeno X has demonstrated competent musical arrangement, while having a decent range of sounds, ranging from Alternate Rock, chillout, to Pop. Unlike Xenoblade Chronicles 2, this is a mostly vocal soundtrack. In this review we will highlight the composer, the pros, and the cons of this soundtrack.

Wonder Boy: The Dragon's Trap has an OST that needs to be discussed more. As this game features both the original work from ShinIchi Sakamoto, and the HD remasters of Michael Geyre. In this OST Review, we discuss the making of this soundtrack, and what made this soundtrack so good.
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild Original Soundtrack was the first major OST for the Nintendo Switch. The trailer theme from the 2017 Presentation sold me into buying Breath of the Wild day one. Breath of the Wild takes truly takes a new route. Kin to it's name, this soundtrack is a breath of fresh air. With ranges from abstract to majestic, Zelda Breath of the Wild OST delivers a breath-taking experience, while daring to try something new. With constant 10/10 review scores, and this being the 2017 Game of the Year, is this a 10/10 soundtrack?
Zelda Breath of the Wild is composed by Manaka Kataoka; Yasuaki Iwata; Hajime Wakai. However, today's artist spotlight goes to Hajime Wakai who has composed tons of titles for Nintendo for over 20 years. He has composed songs from Star Fox 64 to Pokemon Stadium 1 & 2, to being the sound designer of Zelda Breath of the Wild. He's was also the sound designer for previous Zelda titles such as Wind Waker HD, and Skyward Sword. To be the person who obtains or even creates the sounds used for this soundtrack is incredible since the selection of sounds of nothing short of being epic. After thoroughly listening to this soundtrack, he was the right man for the job.
ARMS OST is composed by Atsuko Asahi, and Yasuaki Iwata. ARMS OST combines the creative styles from Mario Kart 8 and Zelda Breath of the Wild into a fresh new composition. With songs like Grand Prix, and Sky Arena, this OST Review is one you may want to check out. This soundtrack has helped me take a better look at the game itself. It furthers my belief Video Game OSTs are very important, and should not be an after thought.
Metal Gear Solid 3 was composed by Harry Gregson-Williams and Norihiko Hibino in 2004. The original soundtrack took a cinematic approach, which is valuable for both creators, and the gamer. With a franchise as iconic as Metal Gear Solid, this soundtrack was such an amazing opportunity to review.
Listening to this Soundtrack was a bit different for me, since 1. I never played the Mass Effect Games, and 2 I don't play many games in the Sci-Fi genre. However, this game's soundtrack did catch my attention, and it is indeed an acquired taste. Going through the soundtrack there are def some aspects I feel that should be addressed on both ends of the positive and negative spectrum. While the visuals fit the theme of the game perfectly, I also have a hard time listening without the visuals.

The Persona 5 OST is one I never would imagine for an RPG. Shoji Meguro is the composer of this OST, and he has done an amazing job in changing the feel of an RPG for me. This jazz, and lo-fi hip-hop inspired soundtrack is in a class of it's own. While the Persona 5 OST may not be on everyone's top list, the music is something people remember this game for. In that regard, it's only right we review this OST. However, was the Persona 5 soundtrack perfect? Let's find out!

The Sonic Mania Original Soundtrack has introduced many to Tee Lopes. Tee Lopes has done a FANTASTIC job in remixing not only the classic Sonic songs, but creating his own original songs.
