This is the same as the above video but with the sound played backwards/reversed. I toyed with other speeds as well, but 8x and 10x seem to work best. Original description below.


In some parts of the game, you can hear what sounds like some long groaning and other noises that just sound like ambient noise. If you speed up the sound, you can hear a mix of singing, and there's definitely some guitar action going on.

At 800% speed, it sounds like a man singing softly with guitar in the background. At 1000% speed, it sounds like a woman singing. I scrubbed through a few hours of recorded footage to try to find some more, but it seems to be just this one song.

It happens in a handful of different sections of the game. In some sections, such as The Fraternal Order of the Raven, part of the middle is cut out like in the Gamesradar video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=keEJUf...

The section in this video is in the Fraternal Order - Aviary section.

I'm having a hard time making out the lyrics. Is this an Easter Egg? Or just a sound designer that thought slowing down a song 10x made for great ambient noise?

IGN just put up a video. Their commentary sounds an awful lot like my analysis in the description, but that's probably just me being paranoid.
