Yeeeee-haw! Rob and Pernell ride again! This week it's all about games and music focused on the American Old-West! Don't let the topic full you though, we've pulled some seriously smooth tunes on this one. Enjoy!
That's right. Rob and Pernell are back. And this time it's personal....lly one of the greatest podcast episodes ever recorded... about space inspired video game music! Still with us? Good! Pernell is back from E3 with some fun stories, and Rob has been playing more video games! Like, two of them! Astounding! Enjoy the riiiiiiide!
Turn the lights down low, and put your phone on Do Not Disturb. It's time for slow jams. Romantic grooves. Smooth, and sexy music from video games is the topic for the week! We talk about how to describe the feeling of music, the problem with fan service in video games, and of course, free love-advice from the love gurus: Rhythm and Pixels. Joining this week is Ed from the upcoming VGM podcast, The VGMbassy! Ed is a good friend of ours, and he brings a wealth of video game musical knowledge to the show that is second to none!
Josh and Keyglyph from The VGM Jukebox podcast have lost their Haunted Jukebox! The only way to find The Haunted Jukebox? With jazz-club inspired video game music! They travel from their Overworld and into Rob and Pernell's listening room! It's a mystery of Scooby-Doo levels, and a cross-over more awesome than when The Flintstones met The Jetsons! Enjoy this extra long cross-over episode, complete with mystery, personal stories, and EXCELLENT MUSIC.
It's raining outside! That means we need to stay inside all day and play video games! Darn! Rob and Pernell share their favorite rainy-day themed music! Rain used in games as back-drops to set the mood and create a unique atmosphere, so the music is composed accordingly. Pernell shares his thoughts on his panels at Anime Central, and they both discuss the effects of time travel.
We're on a diet this week, eating nothing but salads! We have no topic this week, just excellent listener-suggested music! We give a preference to our Patreon subscribers, as this recording was streamed live for all of our supporters! We talk about our favorite racing games, Rob mispronounces MANY names, and there's a ton of singing. So much singing! Enjoy the show!
This week's topic is all bout sneaking around, breaking and entering, and ... E-Sports??? We talk about summer time at the beach, bank heists, bunny-people, and the greatest professional Korean gamer of all time.
Jump around, jump around, jump around-yeah! This week we listen to classic hip-hop, and classic hip-hop inspired, video game music! It gets funky, it gets heavy, and then it gets cheesey... oh boy it gets cheesey in places 🙂 We are joined by the talented producer and video game composer, 2 Mello! (2064 Read Only Memories, Celeste) He wanted to jump on our show and talk about the cross-over of video games into hip-hop, and sometimes vice-versa. We talk about the use of samples, old hardware, and our favorite Jet Set Radio characters.
Let's talk pinball, man. PIN BALL MAAAAAAANNNN!! Rob and Pernell listen to great music from video games based on pinball games, or using pinball game mechanics! And hoo-boy there are a lot of them! Pinball is a unique game that combines dexterity and physics with electronics. Moving this game into the digital world means you can add moving characters, RPG elements, and even blue sparks!
Today on the show Rob and Pernell start their own Major League Podcast team, the Wilmington Chiptuners! Not really though, this week's episode is all about video game characters who carry bats! Or big sticks! Or you know, something like that... we've got all sorts of ideas. We talk about the nostalgia we have for places we used to live, the romance of Tommy Lasord, and how to navigate the spirit world of Weehawken New Jersey. This week's topic was submitted by listener Wicked Sephiroth! High five!
