Soundtracks/When I played…Need for Speed III

Soundtracks is where we talk about licensed music in games. When I Played was a series from a few years ago, about significant games, and times, in my life. Today we have a strange kind of hybrid/crossover piece, a one-off for a special occasion. Hope you don’t mind. Nostalgia and happy (or, sometimes, less-than-happy) memories […]
