Episode 23-7 Electricboogaloo Appreciation Day

Sometimes during the life of a podcast the hosts become friends with listeners. And sometimes a particular listener's musical tastes are just so perfect you have to devote an entire episode to tracks suggested by them! So that's why we proclaim today to be Electricboogaloo Appreciation Day! (They have no idea we're doing this, so just go with it okay?)

Episode 23-6 Beat’em-Ups Then and Now

Finally a wholesome podcast about family-video-games. Games that feature WHIPS, CHAINS, AND THE MAYOR FIGHTING IN THE STREETS! You know, for kids! This week Rob and Pernell look at the roots of this bare-knuckled genre and follow its evolution to where it is today. What made early beat'em-ups so much fun to kids? What is keeping them relevant today? Who composed the theme song to Perfect Strangers and how are these things related? They may not be. Right? Okay now I'm just talking to myself. My therapist said I should really stop doing that.

Episode 23-5 Rental Reflections

This week's podcast is extra-retro with classic game music and classic stories of renting games in the 90's! We discuss the difficulty of completing games before returning them to the store, not to mention the fate of our save games while battling through long RPGs! Go microwave-up some popcorn and Google those instruction manuals, it's time to reflect on some classic game rental moments!

Episode 23-4 C64 Showcase with Michael Bridgewater

This week on the podcast we look at the past, present, and possible future of music for our favorite little 8-bit computer system: The Commodore 64. We start with music composed for games from its original retail run, and end with music from new games developed by home-brew indie enthusiasts!

We couldn't have covered so much about the system without the help of our friend and special guest: Michael Bridgewater! Not only does he join us to provide color on the hardware and tricks used to compose these tunes, but every track on today's episode was recorded direct from his original C64 hardware!

Episode 23-3 Your Study Music

We open up the podcast for listener suggestions of your favorite study music! We get smooth strings, lofi beats, and one really dark song from the Yu Gi Oh series. Seriously, that track blew us away!

Episode 22-8 La-Mulana with Carlos

Long ago... Before humanity came into existence. Two friends set out on a quest for great music.  But they became lost inside the world of great video game music! It's been a very long time since we've done an entire show focused on a single game, or even a series. So here is our tribute to all things La-Mulana! La-Mulana is an ENORMOUS side-scrolling adventure game with great puzzles, huge bosses, and great puzzles! Did I mention the puzzles? Joining us this is week is Carlos from the Heroes Three podcast! Heroes Three is a bi-weekly show centered on Asian cinema and martial arts movies! Check them out!
