Rob and Pernell listen to their favorites from the Nintendo Entertainment System! Things get a little silly, and we ask for silly suggestions from Facebook live on the show, get weird with us!
Arm your Mega Buster and GET EQUIPPED with excellent game music from the Mega Man series!

Going beyond VGM karaoke and giving life and emotion to the Blue Bomber and his robot brothers!
Viking Guitar are here to answer the big questions. How do you introduce yourself to your favorite band? What arcade games interest bassists more than lead guitarists?

Once again Rob and Pernell fly the starship VGM into the Wildcard Nebula, looking for the hottest video game tracks, and it's tight. Expect slamming heavy metal tunes, killer NES jams, and good friends. Rob talks about his days playing Marvel vs. Capcom 2 back in his arcade days, and Pernell wants to see more exercise-related video games in gyms. The conversation continues, and continues further than usual due to problems with the space-time-continuum in this: The Wildcard Nebula.
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!
This episode is all about monsters in video games! Rob thinks it's about games where you play as monsters, and Pernell thinks it's about games where the focus is destroying monsters. Will this misunderstanding finally end their friendship!? Spoiler! Nothing can ruin their friendship. They talk about how to describe music and attempt to find more uses for the word ignorant.
Let me tell you, that walk to the village isn't as safe as you think. Let me tell you, that walk to the village isn't as short as you think. The road is dangerous with RANDOM BATTLES! This week it's all about that random battle music!
High adventure and HEAVY METAL! We listen to great Zelda game music from all across the generations. Joining us this week is the Zelda-inspired heavy metal group Master Sword! We talk hook-shots, operatic metal, and winding stair-cases. It's dangerous to go alone, listen to this podcast!
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.
Let's listen to music that can get you powered up! Music that makes you feel like you can save the world even though your just a high school kid with magical powers! We explore the world of Shonen Jump video games and video game cross-overs!
