It’s time to throw down and listen to great video game music! We tell stories of playing arcade beat’em ups in the arcades, and Rob sets a romantic mood with a special track from Cadillacs and Dinosaurs.
Sometimes you float, sometimes you swim, but usually you just die instantly! This week on the podcast we listen to great music used in video game water levels. Our selections range from chill to heavy rock, but still all sound watery!
Grab your swimsuit and goggles, the Rhythm and Pixels are going into the VGM deep end!
A wild podcast appears! The Rhythm and Pixels team is blasting off at the speed of music, because this week we’re talking about all things Pokemon.
