The Super VGM Brothers Rob and Pernell and back it again with another great episode, this time focusing on theme music for characters.
Listening to each track is like getting to know a new person, since the theme music carries with it personality and drama from the game. It’s like we have 9 different guests on the show today! Except for that slacker Richard Millman! GET BACK TO WORK MILLMAN!
Theme of Sailor Pluto – Bishoujo Senshi Sailor Moon Super S: Zenin Sanka Shuyaku Soudastusen – Super Famicom – Seisuke Itoh, Hiroo Ikeda, Katsu
Streets! Inns! Shopping! Towns have it all! Music for these more peaceful areas of games are often relaxing and pleasant, but it will still reflect the themes and tone of the story. There’s also talk of Muppet Babies and Suikoden on the water.
Special thanks to Remi for this week’s topic! Thanks!

We match 3, clear rows of lines, and dump garbage blocks in this exciting new episode. Puzzle games is this week’s topic! The hosts talk about their shared love OF the genre, and how it brought them together as friends. And sometimes enemies, because Pernell is too good at Magical Drop and must be stopped at all costs.
There is music across a variety of game systems, so there is something for everybody! Get down with the Rhythm and Pixels!
