Episode 6-4 Dreamcast RPGs

episode_artwork54

This week we focus on the small-ish library of role playing games for the Sega Dreamcast.  The Sega Dreamcast is a very special system for both of us.  It had some great games, but they were also taking risks with some crazy ones.  It was also the system that was around just as the arcades started disappearing, so it makes the Dreamcast arcade-ports that much more important.  This episode runs a little bit longer because we have so many personal stories about the system, games, and of course, the music.

Track list:

  1. Theme of R-720 – Segagaga – Dreamcast – Tsuyoshi Kaneko, Hirsohi Kawaguchi, Masato Nakamura
  2. Commercial Town Lilig Apparent Prosperity – Grandia II – Dreamcast – Noriyuki Iwadare
  3. Eastokion (Town) – E.G.G. Elemental Gimmick Gear – Dreamcast – Haruyoshi Rokudo
  4. Boss Battle Crisis/Opportunity- Skies of Arcadia – Dreamcast – Yutaka Minobe, Tatsuyuki Maeda
  5. Crypt Maze – Evolution 2 – Dreamcast – Masaharu Iwata
  6. Empty Space Out of Control Part 1 – Phantasy Star Online – Dreamcast – Hideaki Kobayashi
  7. Air Pirates (Skies of Arcadia) – Mykah
  8. Ragol Weather (Image of Hero) Remix – zircon
  9. Dream – Lack of Love (L.O.L.) – Dreamcast – Ryuichi Sakamoto

episode_artwork52

The show gets a few upgrades and add-ons this week with our focus on the TurboGrafx CD systems!  Last week we looked at classic TurboGrafx 16 music, but this week is music in the classic CD audio format Redbook.  It gets a little jazzy, a little funky, and then a little crazy with that Riot Zone track.  I’m still not sure what’s going on there.

Track list:

  1. Ending 2 – Dragon Slayer The Legend of Heroes 2 – PC Engine Super CD – Falcom Sound Team JDK (Mieko Ishikawa and Atsushi Shirakawa)
  2. Stage 5 BGM – Splash Lake – TurboGrafx CD – Ts Music
