Episode 3-3 Rhythm Games

Get into the groove, boy you got to prove, you're up to-great video game music! This week's episode is all about music for rhythm games, which sounds like "music for music games". Which it is!

They also get a little nostalgic for the glory days of Konami's rhythm arcade game explosion. But come on, who doesn't like singing and dancing in arcades? Because we like it. We like it A LOT.
