Deep bass, deep grooves, and mountains of lush synthesizer sounds. This week we look for the perfect driving music, and end up finding the best synthwave ever composed for video games.
Join us on a deep-dive exploration of cave related music! Creepy caverns, dangerous dungeons, and um.. uh… murky mines? Pernell’s tracks make Rob feel like he’s in a chill and romantic underground grotto, hanging with all of his magical friends with none excluded. Keep listening for the Bonus Round part of the show, it’s an awesome one this week!
Looking for the best C64 music the little computer system has to offer? How about the most ROCKIN Genesis tunes you’ve ever heard? Then look no further! We do a composer-focused episode devoted to none-other than Rob Hubbard!
You! Traveler! Stop there! You may not enter the town of Pernellshire without first collecting some items I require. My family has been attacked by orcs, and I need you to collect 50 squirrel skins. There, off you go! No use standing around. Go on then.
Welcome to the surface of RNP388. We need your help eliminating the alien threat. You alone can stop the invasion armed with your boom-box full of excellent Metroid music!
Tune in as we focus on the works of composer Yoko Shimomura! She has worked in the business since the 80s with such amazing music ranging from Street Fighter II to Kingdom Hearts. Rob and Pernell share tracks from her amazing career, and share stories of old arcades, and mythical animals.
This week we take a second look at music composed specifically for world maps in games. We are honored to have a musical guest joining us, Amanda Lepre from the band Descendants of Erdrick! She brings her vast musical insight and love of fantasy RPG’s to the conversation. We discuss how important it is for world map music to create the mood, emotionally setting up the player for a new section of the game.
It’s still summer time, so let’s get these podcasts heated up! Wait, slow down! It’s getting too hot! We throw down our favorite musical selections, competing for “Most Dry”, and “Most Dehydrated”.
You’re training hard, but there isn’t enough time to show everyone? That’s when you need a montage! We’re talking tough-hard-hitting music for boxers to work out to. But we’re also talking about fun, harmonica-filled jams for the end of a 90s sitcom. Like Family Matters. What if that actually was Carl Winslow helping out Bruce Willis in Die Hard?
It’s been a long week, so we hit the freestyle button and listen to game tunes with no topic restrictions.
This week the super podcast brothers are joined by members from the VGM cover band Rare Candy to talk about all things Final Fantasy! We listen to tracks from nearly every console the series made an appearance. We also end up discussing the finer points of arranging video game tunes for the band, playing Gameboy in long car rides, and what qualities truly make up a “Pernell Track”. It was great fun to record, we hope you enjoy it!
Okay, where did I put that password. Is it in the back of the game’s manual? Is it on a post-it note stuck to my Gameboy? Oh there it is, of course! I had it tattooed on Pernell so I would never lose it!
No, this isn’t the last episode of the podcast, but with all these ending themes you just might not be so sure. This episode features songs with real emotion, sadness, and even humor. No really, stick around for the bonus round, it gets real funny real fast!
We’ve got an extra special episode for you this week! This one is all about games with movie adaptations. And to make this journey extra special, we’re joined by a very special guest, Mustin! Mustin is a long time member of The OneUps band, founder of Bad Dudes, lover of video game music, and all around excellent guy.
I don’t think anyone would OBJECT to hearing more great music from the Phoenix Wright Ace Attorney series! This is our second dive into the music from the series, which makes it part 2: this time, it’s personal.
What a weekend! Rob and Pernell present the show to a live audience at Too Many Games! Too Many Games is a 3 day long classic video game convention featuring panels, concerts, and a huge arcade. Enjoy the fun!
This week you get a very excited discussion about golf games, from a very sleepy Rob and very excited Pernell. Golf game music is chill, jazzy, cheesy, so many good things! They also discuss the merits of VR, and the musical genius of Arnold Palmer. And I for one welcome our robot golfing overlords…
The Neo Geo is not only known for beautiful 2d sprite artwork, but also amazing music. You know the Neo Geo, you’d see the big red cabinet in the arcades, 4 brightly colored buttons, and often multiple games in the same system. Let’s dig in and have some fun!
To celebrate the new movie Wonder Woman, Rob and Pernell focus on games with strong female protagonists. There is lots of jazz, and argument discussion about the Final Fantasy series. We also form the first emo-jug-band, which is way cooler than it sounds.
You heard right, we will be at the gaming expo Too Many Games this year! And not just that, we will be recording an episode live with an audience! Do […]
