This week on the show we listen to music from games based on what we call The Geek Trifecta: Anime, American Comic Books, and Cosplay! We talk about anime conventions of long ago, and anime of long ago. We also have lots to catch up on at the top of the show, so I hope you don’t mind a little preamble 🙂 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.

We’re on a diet this week, eating nothing but salads! We have no topic this week, just excellent listener-suggested music! We give a preference to our Patreon subscribers, as this recording was streamed live for all of our supporters! We talk about our favorite racing games, Rob mispronounces MANY names, and there’s a ton of singing. So much singing! Enjoy the show!

Last night a DJ saved my life with a 1-up! Our next two episodes will “club music” focused, with this episode being dance music. We’re talking four-to-the-floor beats, massive sub-woofers, and all the glow-sticks you can eat! We also talk about dancing at weddings (which we love to do) and fall in love with Yuzo Koshiro all over again.
Join us on the dance-floor, it’s going to be massive!
