We always pride ourselves in finding the best game music you may have never heard of. But this week we take things a step further. We dig deep into the catalog of classic and current-generation game systems looking for music that was overlooked. Joining us on this journey is Chris Taylor (twitch.tv/lierxagerate), Twitch streamer and creator of the Facebook group: Hidden Sound Test Along with all the great music we get into some deep discussion of the games too! Chris talks about his road-trips to MAGfests past, and even includes his own arrangement of an excellent (and obscure) Neil Baldwin tune!

Episode 25-6 Simpsons Games
We finally did it. We've made so many references to The Simpsons that we have an entire show devoted to its games! We've got music from the Game Boy all the way to the PlayStation. We talk about how the classic NES game discouraged Rob from ever exploring other Simpsons games. And maybe that's for the better!
Episode 25-5 The Console Wars
The podcast goes old-school this week as we compare our favorites from the 16-bit generation of video games! Pernell steps into the ring with killer music from the Super Nintendo. Rob wields a +16 critical Genesis synthesizer, ready to battle! We're not doing a direct comparison of the systems, nor are we arguing which one is best! We are putting together what we think made each system special, and why we still love the music and games today.

We're listening to music from spooky games! Or spooky music from just plain awesome games! This week's episode is a Patreon-supported episode of listener suggestions! Every month we turn to our listeners for music suggestions and we read their testimonials! So grab your headphones, hit play, and listen to the tale of Pernell's missing piece of NEC history from the 90s!
Episode 25-3 The Horror!
This week on the show we listen to music from all games monster-related and ghost-adjacent! Not all these tracks are scary on their own, but we hope they put you into the Halloween spirit! We talk about all the things that scare Pernell and some of Rob's favorite horror movies! Some say that if you play this podcast 3 times in the mirror, Pernell shows up behind you with a bag of potato chips! So, go do that!
Episode 25-2 Video Game Blind Dates
We're matching up video game characters for blind-dates on this week's episode! Rob and Pernell play match-maker, picking random characters and then finding out if they're compatible! Some are hits!
