The year is 2007. It is the future. It is the future. Earth has been ravaged by a nuclear war and new paths for peace must be found. A U.S. cyborg army may have found a solution: a powerful bioweapon on a distant island. A Mark IV Cyber Commando, Sergeant Rex Power Colt has been sent over to gather information and figure out what the hell is going on.
This is the silly premise for the surprisingly fun videogame Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon, the standalone expansion for Far Cry 3 by Ubisoft Montreal. This title is a love letter for the kids of the 80’s, filling it with all the science – fiction, action and game references of that decade.
An important part of achieving this feeling is thanks to the amazing soundtrack made by the Australian duet Power Glove. (Not to be confused by the power-metal instrumental-only videogame cover band from Boston: Powerglove ). According to their twitter account, they are:
Armed with only two POWERGLOVES, we are two lawyers sent back from the streets of future, post apocalyptic Los Angeles 2043.
I mean, just take a listen to this track, kinda feels like watching the first Terminator movie:
The soundtrack was an incentive for preordering the game on Steam, but if you were like me (who rarely preorders game), maybe you bought it on XBLA / PSN, or haven’t got the game (yet, I suppose), andare interested on the soundtrack, you can give it a full listen on youtube, or, you know, if you really like it you should really show a little support to the group you can go and buy it (iTunes, Amazon).

Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon was released on April 30, 2013 on PSN (NA) and on May 1st, 2013 on PSN (EU), PC and XBLA. It was developed by Ubisoft Montreal and published by Ubisoft.
