This week is all about fighting games produced by SNK. We discover hard rock, smooth jazz, euro-beat, and even early 90s positive-rap! The Bonus-Round is OFF THE HOOK, you can’t miss this one!
Helping us make sense of it all, we’re joined by VGM expert and podcast master: Ed Wilson! (The VGMbassy, Impulse Project, PixelTunes Radio) Ed brings the class this show desperately needed! His vast knowledge of game systems, hardware, and composers… and we just sing silly songs and crack jokes.

BTW this episode was live-streamed on our Twitch channel, so there’s lots of singing and some visual gags that might not translate. 🙂
That’s right, this is our 200th (numbered) episode! We’ve released mixtapes, bonus-beats, and various other things. BUT THIS! This is our 200th episode!!! We celebrate with tea, energy drinks, and music of course! We also listen to your favorite moments of the last 4 years, and they crack us up! Enjoy the show!
Battle of Conflicts – Cosmic Star Heroine – HyperDuck Soundworks (Chris Geehan, Dan Byrne-Mccullough)
Inspired by some music from our past Gameboy Advance episode, we present a mix of great liquid drum and bass video game music! There are tracks from a diverse group of games and game consoles, but they all hit the mark for big bass, big atmosphere, and speed.
Liquid is a sub-genre of drum and bass, using similar tempos and bass-lines, but aimed at producing a sentimental atmosphere for listening at home, rather than at a nightclubs and raves.
Hey! next week is our 200th episode!!! We’re going to highlight your favorite moments from the show, so let us know! Send us an email!
