Episode 7-10 Sad Robots

episode_artwork70

This week’s topic is listener suggested, because “sad robots” sounds cool. Robots have such a hard time in video games. Often they’re tortured, and forced to fight their family, even their own creators. We listen to some amazing jazz and guitar music, and Pernell signs away his cyborg-rights to Rob live on the show! This one’s got everything!

  1. Voltage Algorism – Pulseman – Genesis – Junichi Masuda
  2. Stage Theme Overworld 2 – RoboWarrior – NES – Takeaki Kunimoto
  3. Quasimodo – Cyborg Justice – Genesis – Andras Magyari, Brian Coburn
  4. Detroit City Ambient – Deus Ex Human Revolution – Playstation 3 – Michael McCann
  5. Heartful Cry (Aigis) – Persona 4 Arena Ultimax – Playstation 3 – Atsushi Kitajoh
  6. Abandoned Memories – Chibi Robo! – Gamecube – Hirofumi Taniguchi
