Bioshock Infinite Sounds

As you know I am a big fan of game audio (and audio in general) so I asked the fine folks at Irrational Games for some audio from Bioshock Infinite. They sent over a couple of files that fit the bill:

“New Objective” Ringtone (This is the tone heard in game whenever a new objective is given to the player)

“Step On Up” Ringtone (This is what one of the vending machines says when you walk near it)

You can preview them above and download a ZIP file containing both files in your preferred format:


.M4R (for iOS)

Also, Irrational has posted 5 additional audio clips to download from their blog (“Salt Machine” is now my text tone)

Collect ‘em all!

Also: Here are some sound files from the original Bioshock I posted back in 2008 in case you missed ‘em the first time

Xbox 360 “Achievement Unlocked” sound as a visual

When I read what Born Of Sound was doing with audio I was intrigued. They take the mechanical vibrations of audio that we hear, but don’t normally see, and turn them into a visual is if they are traveling trough air. They call this a “sound-form

I contacted them and asked them to do a sound-form for the familiar Xbox 360 Achievement Unlocked Sound.  They came back with this ethereal image.

I’ve got a larger version of the image above on my Flickr if you want to use it as your device wallpaper, or you just want to get a closer look.  

Head over to their site to see a gallery of their work or you can get your own done

Audio files from Ghostbusters


If you’re enjoying Ghostbusters: The Video Game, then I’ve got a little something special for you today. My friends at Terminal Reality sent me a few of the master audio files directly from the game to share with you. There are clips of of the PKE Meter, Capturing Sequence and two clips of an angry Stay Puft Marshmallow man.  I have created two ZIP files. One is the WAV version (the masters) the other is a 96k MP3 version.  Each ZIP contain the same four files in the appropriate file format.


Right click and choose ‘Save as’ (or something similar) to save this to your computer. Go ahead and make this your ring tone, new mail sound or whatever you think is cool. I’d love to know how you use it.


Download the Ghostbusters audio .ZIP file (WAV format, 3.50 MB)
