Unoriginal Soundtracks Podcast: Heavy Rain Edition

Alex Martin writes: Every other Wednesday I share a playlist of songs tangentially related to a single game or series. Songs about alien sex for Mass Effect, songs about world leaders for Civilization, and so on. Searching for random terms on Spotify is a great way to discover new music and rediscover old classics.

Heavy Rain is one of the best flawed games of the last five years. It makes you feel helpless with an X button, but uses that same X button to absurdly repeat your son's name; it adapts its story so there is no failure, but that story is a sub-standard murder mystery; its characters are some of the most emotive on a console, but they sound like they belong in another country. (Culture, Heavy Rain , PS3)
