Welcome to our 50th episode! We have an absolute treat for you this week, we've got special guest Aethernaut joining us to listen and comment on great game music. He helped us out by choosing the topic: Music with emotional gravity.
Boo! It's that time of the year to thinking about spooky-scary things. Things like ghosts and goblins, draculas, wolfmen, and mad-mad-mad-mad-scientists! Let Rob and Pernell be your guides into the haunted house of video game music! Happy Halloween everyone!
Rob and Pernell take a break from the usual, and get down with some original chiptunes! The focus this week isn't just for original chip-music, that is music made specifically with older hardware. The tracks picked for the show are just excellent tunes created with the classic sounds and hardware as the focal point of the show. There's also a lengthy discussion of Anamanaguchi at the end of the show for some reason. Such a special show deserves a special guest! This week the Super VGM Bros. are joined by R&P All-Star Matt Waldron (Pernell and Matt Play Games).
Internet! Are you ready to ROCK! What started as an episode of great guitar riffs, turned into general rock music found in video games. As usual Rob digs into the classic 8 and 16 bit generations, and Pernell shares some of his favorite Falcom Sound Team tunes. Let's jam!
This week your hosts listen to music from sky and air themed stages. These are parts of games that are not entirely about the sky, but these sections are in the clouds. Pernell tries to get his head around the realities of Little Nemo, and Rob channels his inner 90s RnB singer in what might be his favorite track of the year.
Are you lost? Not sure where the next is? Let Pernell, THE HUMAN GPS, help you to your next destination! World map, overworld map, all the maps, it's map music. We find that our picks compliment each other in their happiness, friendliness, and then darkness. These maps get dark yo.
Let's keep the Mega Man love going, let's listen to the music from the GBA series Mega Man Battle Network. Pernell finds his inner Mega Man, and Rob talks about a snare drum for too long. This series is a treasure-trove of excellent music, and it makes this episode a must-listen.
Rob and Pernell set aside their friendship and call each other out. It's time to throw-down! Gutsman I choose you! This week we pit Mega Man Robot Master against Robot Master in a battle to the awesome!
You did it! This is your time, this is all for you. This is your video game music victory. We listen to great music composed for celebratory sections of games. Not necessarily RPGs, but any game where you have become victorious. We're joined this week again by our good friend Matt Waldron of Pernell and Matt Play Games! He brings some great tunes, and some great discussion. He's a great guy! Check our his show on Youtube!
Roll some dice, flip some cards, and ruin your relationships! That's what board games is all about. This week we focus on board games in video game form. They could be video game versions of existing board games, or video games designed as board games. Pernell gets nostalgic with some Top Shop action, and Rob picks all Japanese Super Famicom tracks. They both can't stop dancing to the Mega Ran track at the end. Enjoy!
