This week on the show Rob and Pernell talk about their favorite video games! Specifically the games they would like to see revived and remastered. But then Pernell reminds Rob of the American Darkstalkers cartoon and his brain cracks open like an egg. AN EGG! Also, we have new merchandise available! Check out these sweet t-shirts, aren't they sweet? You bet they are! https://teespring.com/rhythm-and-pixels-apparel https://teespring.com/run-vgm
We're back at it again with the wacky game topics! And don't think for a second that Pernell isn't going to rap like MC Hammer at some point during the show! When all your pixels are hammers, every game looks like a nail! Or something like that.
It's getting hot outside, so stay indoors with your favorite video games! Rob and Pernell curated the perfect playlist of summer-jams from a huge selection of listener-suggestions! Also on this episode we play the perfect Summertime game: "Are these lyrics from a Sonic game or class R&B hit?" Enjoy the show!
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?)
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.
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!
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!
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!

This week's show is all about finding the tunes to help you study! Something with a good groove that you can just leave on for hours while you get ready for that big test! OH NO! The big test is tomorrow!?!? I've got to study!
Download! This week on the show we're looking at the music on handheld games that were ports from newer generation hardware! There was a time in gaming history when much older consoles existed along side the newest ones. This is…
