This week is all about fighting games produced by SNK. We discover hard rock, smooth jazz, euro-beat, and even early 90s positive-rap! The Bonus-Round is OFF THE HOOK, you can’t miss this one!
Helping us make sense of it all, we’re joined by VGM expert and podcast master: Ed Wilson! (The VGMbassy, Impulse Project, PixelTunes Radio) Ed brings the class this show desperately needed! His vast knowledge of game systems, hardware, and composers… and we just sing silly songs and crack jokes.
