This week we're remembering a special person from Pernell's life with the music they enjoyed together. We share stories and listen to games that hit close to the heart. Don't worry it's not all somber and sadness, because there are some fantastic tunes!
Rob and Pernell brace themselves as the podcast goes into overdrive! We're talking about panic-music in this week's episode. Music that plays during bosses, boss-parades, Thanksgiving-day-parades, and Thanksgiving-day-boss-parades! This week's episode was recorded over a live-stream for Patreon members!

This episode we listen to music from our all time favorite platform games! We are out there, collecting coins and rings, just trying to make it in this podcast world. Pernell mastered the double-jump just to reach the 1-Up, while Rob focused all his energy on the super-sonic-spin-dash, just to run head first into spikes! Also, on a very special episode of Everybody Loves Rayman, we learn that Super Meat Boy is racing to save the Sonic the Hedgehog franchise from a terrible movie.
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 week's soundtrack is provided by supporters of Patreon! We talk about our favorite Batmen, and take a look at Pernell's professional RPG speed-running career. Throughout the episode, Pernell attempts to complete Ninja Gaiden 2, and Rob distracts him through the power of modern dance.
We leave the comfy confines of episode topics and dive head-first into the dangerous waters of video game recommendations! Rob suggests that games that weren't as bad as you might remember, and Pernell talks about forgotten favorites. It's an eclectic episode with a surprising amount of Nintendo DS music!
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.
