Everyone loves a good dystopian world where you have to scavenge for food along with the rest of the survivors of a population-decimating plague among cities that have been reclaimed by nature. . . . or at least we love playing games that are set in that environment. As mentioned in our PlayStation Store Update, The Last Of Us focuses on two survivors – Joel and Elle – who are stuck in just that environment with the military determined to get Elle back. Why? Well, that’s for you to find out as you play this highly-anticipated game.
Also released this week is the official soundtrack from Gustavo Santaolalla, now available on the Music Unlimited service. The Academy Award and Golden Globe-winning composer has been recognized with those honors for his work on the soundtracks to the films Brokeback Mountain and Babel , but this is his first foray into the video game world. With such a rich story line, it feels like a natural transition for the musician, who carefully designed the game’s hauntingly minimalistic score. Hear more about his history and the creation of the album in the video below.
After all the buzz from E3, The Last of Us game and soundtrack are a great way to top off an exciting week. Enjoy!

In the ever-changing ebb and flow of the music industry, you often have to scream and shout to shift attention to your band, let alone an entire roster.

The hard rock powerhouse recently released a solid slate of albums to kick off 2013, including Killswitch Engage, Stone Sour and Airbourne and we’re celebrating with a collection of tracks from those albums and them and the rest of the catalog in the Roadrunner Records Channel. Find it now in the premium channels section of the Music Unlimited service.
