Get those reflexes ready, welcome to Bullet-Hell’s Kitchen! This week we dig into the soaring, energetic, and often manic tunes of arcade shoot’em-ups! We look at the old and new, horizontal and vertical, and the cute and insane! We also create a shooter based on Pernell, and Rob becomes an old man battling against impossible odds.
DO DOD DOODDOODODODO DAYTONAAAA!!!! Boy do we have a great show for you this week! We take a look at music composed for Sega arcade games throughout the years. We’re talking all things Virtua and Golden Axey!
Rob and Pernell are back together in the studio, and ready to rock this podcast! This week’s topic is “Memories”, meaning anything that triggers specific memories for us, personal or gaming related. So this one gets a little heavy on the nostalgia. Pernell gets nostalgic for the old east coast Bemani scene, and Rob gets nostalgic for old audio formats.
Happy new year everyone! Thanks for coming back for another great year of video game music. It means a great deal to us that you’re still listening and enjoying the show! This week we do another composer focus, this time on one of Konami’s greats, Mihciru Yamane! Enjoy!
This episode is composer-focused, we only play tracks originally composed by Namco alumni Junko Ozawa. Her work ranges from Namco arcade classics like Rolling Thunder and PacMania, all the way to Klonoa for the Playstation. There’s old and new classics to be found in this episode, so grab your headphones and get into it!
Rob and Pernell celebrate episode 4-1 with all tracks from the fourth sections of video games! Four-sure this is going to be an episode you don’t want to miss.
Raise your four’se fields, because you get four hosts this week! Four’get aboudit! The R&P brothers are joined by fellow podcastmen: Ed and Mike from Pixel Tunes Radio.
