Don’t adjust your podcast! This week on the show we’re joined by VGM experts and podcast veterans Brent and Rob from The Legacy Music Hour! Pernell has double-vision when he sees two Robs! This East-coast-West-coast joint is bound to bring out the competitive nature in your hosts. But instead we find connections, Rob connections, Bob connections, and WILD connections!
We’ve done it! Three years of podcasts, video game music, and friendship! Let’s reflect back on our favorite tracks and episodes of the last year, you may be surprised at what we pick! There’s celebratory beverages, behind-the-scenes podcast stories, and fun trivia quizzes which Pernell is way too good at.
This episode was recorded in a live stream, which you can watch here unedited! (ALL HAIL THE METRONOME)
We are seeing so many great new games recently with a retro-aesthetic, and we love it! Whether it’s pixelized 16-bit style artwork, or classic gameplay mechanics, it’s something that we’re drawn to immediately. The music is no different, borrowing from the sounds of past hardware and putting an original spin on it. We talk about music that makes you anxious, human emotions as power-ups, and Pernell does a food dance. Enjoy!
