The start of a new year for Rhythm and Pixels also means the start of a new rivalry! Test your knowledge of game music with Rob and Pernell in this very special game-show episode hosted by Chris Baines! Think of this episode like a "Name That Tune" contest for video game music. We invite you to play along and keep score with us! Chris Baines (http://www.chrisbainesmusic.com, X-Hunters) has been creating VGM quiz videos and most recently has started doing deep-dive documentaries into your favorite games!

This week on the show we're saying hello to the new year and GOODBYE to 2020 with a live show for our Patreon members! All of the music this week is somehow related to the good and the bad of 2020. There's also a silly quiz game that you can play along with! Joining us on the show this week is Austin (WASD, Dwelling of Duels) and Josh (The Runaway Four)! They're here to promote their fantastic show BONUS DUELS happening this coming Saturday! But little did they know that they would have to hang out with Rob and Pernell for a couple hours and answer their questions about life, religion, and Shin Megami Tensei. https://wasdband.bandcamp.com http://dwellingofduels.net/ https://therunawayfour.bandcamp.com
From Chrono Trigger to Xenoblade, it's clear that Yasunori Mitsuda is a master composer. Why not finish the year with music from one of our favorite composers! We celebrate the end of 2020 with a special episode focused on the composer Yasunori Mitsuda. Of course all our episodes begin with some game discussion and what we're playing. Lots of extra movie talk than we expected. Lots of great music in this episode! Don't forget that now is the last time to get 15% off all our t-shirts!

We always pride ourselves in finding the best game music you may have never heard of. But this week we take things a step further. We dig deep into the catalog of classic and current-generation game systems looking for music that was overlooked. Joining us on this journey is Chris Taylor (twitch.tv/lierxagerate), Twitch streamer and creator of the Facebook group: Hidden Sound Test Along with all the great music we get into some deep discussion of the games too! Chris talks about his road-trips to MAGfests past, and even includes his own arrangement of an excellent (and obscure) Neil Baldwin tune!

We finally did it. We've made so many references to The Simpsons that we have an entire show devoted to its games! We've got music from the Game Boy all the way to the PlayStation. We talk about how the classic NES game discouraged Rob from ever exploring other Simpsons games. And maybe that's for the better!
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.
