This week on the show we focus on something familiar. We want Zelda games, but don’t want Zelda games, you know what I mean? These are games similar to the classic “Link To The Past” or “Link’s Awakening” styles, but not featuring our iconic hero. Enjoy this week’s adventure games that are not Zelda!
Blossom Town – Blossom Tales: The Sleeping King – PC – Visager
BGM 2 – Rolan’s Curse – Gameboy – Kazunori Hideya
Main theme – 3D Dot Game Heroes – Playstation 3 – Shinji Hosoe, Ayako Saso, Shochiro Sakamoto, Teuro Taniguchi, Takaheiro Eguchi, Norihiro Hurukawa
Underground – Looney Tunes Collector: Alert! – Gameboy Color – Alberto Jose Gonzalez
This week’s topic is listener suggested, because “sad robots” sounds cool. Robots have such a hard time in video games. Often they’re tortured, and forced to fight their family, even their own creators. We listen to some amazing jazz and guitar music, and Pernell signs away his cyborg-rights to Rob live on the show! This one’s got everything!
Voltage Algorism – Pulseman – Genesis – Junichi Masuda
Rabbit season! Duck season! Video game music season. Rob and Pernell dig into some great tunes from games about Looney Tunes! Pernell does some calisthenics, and Rob can’t stop talking about the amazing music of Alberto Jose “get-up-and-jam” Gonzalez.
Seriously though, don’t sleep on this one, there are some amazing musical gems covered in this week’s episode.
