Game Audio Relevance 006

This series of game audio relevant links may serve as sort of an origin story for me, as I am floored on a monthly basis by the amount of related output that goes by on a monthly basis. What makes this the genesis of the 'lab you might ask? Well as few as 5 short years ago, you'd be remiss to find much out there regarding game audio on the net, at least information about the technical side was significantly lacking. I often found myself buried in SDK docs for HL2 or reading through OpenAL programmer API's in order to understand some of the fundamentals of how audio get's integrated into games. To say that we are in an information age is understating the obvious, but there really is a ton of stuff out there flowing down the stream of interactive audio if you've got your ears on.

Hopefully there's something of interest in this latest batch of madness, keep em' peeled!
