Episode 25-5 The Console Wars

The podcast goes old-school this week as we compare our favorites from the 16-bit generation of video games! Pernell steps into the ring with killer music from the Super Nintendo. Rob wields a +16 critical Genesis synthesizer, ready to battle! We're not doing a direct comparison of the systems, nor are we arguing which one is best! We are putting together what we think made each system special, and why we still love the music and games today.

Bonus Beats 6 Ambient Music

Happy new year from the Rhythm and Pixels team! We've got your morning playlist covered! Perfect after a long night of partying, video games, and fizzy drinks. Smooth sounds, strings, and even vocals dip and dive all over this mix of fantastic video game music. 

Regular episodes will resume soon, so I hope you don't mind this little Winter-break we've taken for ourselves! 2020 is going to be full of fun times and great music, so we'll see you soon!

Episode 17-8 The Return of Dragon Patreon Ninja

Episode 17-6 Villains with Cameron from The Mad Gear!

Villains are just plain terrible. Sometimes they're trying to end the world, sometimes they're turning woodland creatures into evil robots. But mostly all they want is to bring back swing music in the 90s, big brass bands and all. We have Cameron from The Mad Gear and joining us to sing along with these villainous hits, and think back fondly of all the bad guys who tried to destroy us.

Episode 14-6 Suspense with Erik Desiderio

Dark clouds are looming over this podcast, something's happening. Something great and terrible! On this week's episode we listen to moody and suspenseful music, perfect to ramp-up the tension on an otherwise fun and friendly podcast. But of course we can't hold it in, and this episode features more singing and silliness than ever!

To help us out this week we're joined by game composer Erik Desiderio (Anshar Online, Diablo III: Rise of the Necromancer, Adventure Time VR) Erik is an award-winnner composer for film, TV, and of course, video games! 

Episode 11-1: Live at Thy Geekdom Con!

Rob and Pernell leave the safety and protection of their studio so they can present awesome video game music to a crowd of unsuspecting cosplayers! This week is a live a recording from the weekend-long anime/video games/cosplay festival known as Thy Geekdom Con! Pernell brings the crowd-pleasers, but Rob just wants to fight with good-old battle music!
