This week on the podcast we're joined by a pair of indie game developers to talk about the classics that influenced all of video games. Some of our choices are a little more obvious than others, but that's what makes it fun! Blake Edwards (Nomppie) is developing Ways Lost, a deck building RPG with rogue-like elements! AJ Wash is a composer working with Blake, helping him bring the world of Ways Lost to life!
Rob and Pernell are here! We're gonna take you for riiiiide! We look at comic book inspired video games, mainly from Marvel comics, and talk about 90s rappers, arcades, and just about anything but comic books! With great VGM power, comes great VGM responsibility. There are some serious jams throughout the episode, you will not be disappointed. Enjoy!
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.
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!
In the words of Kool & The Gang: Celebrate Podcasts! Okay I know that's not what they said, but it's what they meant. This episode marks 100 episodes of Rhtyhm and Pixels! That's 100 MP3 files of great music, remixes, and friendship. We celebrate by revisiting our favorite topics from each "podcast world", and choosing new tracks! Why did we do this funky episode numbering in the first place? Don't worry about it!

Tune in as we focus on the works of composer Yoko Shimomura! She has worked in the business since the 80s with such amazing music ranging from Street Fighter II to Kingdom Hearts. Rob and Pernell share tracks from her amazing career, and share stories of old arcades, and mythical animals.
This week the super podcast brothers are joined by members from the VGM cover band Rare Candy to talk about all things Final Fantasy! We listen to tracks from nearly every console the series made an appearance. We also end up discussing the finer points of arranging video game tunes for the band, playing Gameboy in long car rides, and what qualities truly make up a "Pernell Track". It was great fun to record, we hope you enjoy it!
Brass! Strings! Percussion! This week we listen to music inspired by the classics, though we often find classical pieces adapted for video games. So why not showcase a little bit of both! Also, Rob tries-out for a position at NPR and Pernell has a serious Persona addiction.
