Episode 33-9 Your Masters of VGM

The multi-podcast event “Masters of VGM” isn’t quite over yet! This week we asked our listeners to submit music from composers they consider to be the absolute MASTER of video game music! Everyone is spot-on with excellent music selections, and excellent testimonials! It’s great to hear what you chose, since we had to constrain ourselves to just four!

Episode 31-10 Good Place Games

If there were an afterlife for games, is there a good place and a bad place? What games would get in the good place, and what did they do in their video game lives to get there?

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 17-6 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.
