Rob likes video games, but he just doesn’t play enough! So as a joke in a previous episode, Pernell thought an entire topic can be made of game suggestions for Rob. I swear this is as meta as we’ll ever get on the show 🙂 All the music in today’s show is designed to get Rob interested in the game, and all the tracks Rob picked are from games that have been on his mind to play soon. I hope we inspire you to try some new games too!

This episode we listen to music from our all time favorite platform games! We are out there, collecting coins and rings, just trying to make it in this podcast world. Pernell mastered the double-jump just to reach the 1-Up, while Rob focused all his energy on the super-sonic-spin-dash, just to run head first into spikes! Also, on a very special episode of Everybody Loves Rayman, we learn that Super Meat Boy is racing to save the Sonic the Hedgehog franchise from a terrible movie.

Target approaching! Fantastic music and great friends! This week on the show we look at our favorite SHMUP games! This is a chance to listen to our favorite shooter games without all the explosions and gun fire!

What sport couldn’t be improved by a Spinning Pile Driver? Or maybe just a handful of Dragon Punches? Baseball would certainly be more interesting. This week on the podcast we listen to music from our favorite fighting games! We cover everything from 2D to 3D, from the 90s all the way to today’s baddest-brawlers. As a special treat, Rob gets extra nerdy about hip-hop samples! There’s a fair amount of rapping in this episode, and this time not from Pernell! Enjoy the show!
