We can all use some good vibes right now so Rob and Pernell get optimistic in this week's episode, focusing on one thing: feeling good! The sun is out and we are safely inside with our VGM boom-boxes turned up! Rob also quizzes Pernell on his knowledge of tennis-pro Andre Agassi and the MANY games they SHOULD have made for this ultimate sports-star! Remember, if you're going to get funky to this week's episode, get funky responsibly!
Disney and video games go together like peanut butter and chocolate. And you've got to love the old-school Capcom disney games, but what about games outside of Capcom? What about games that aren't about specific characters or shows, but just "Princesses" who knows! Rob and Pernell are joined by Mike and Justin from XVGM Radio to take a deep dive into the world of Disney, music, and absolute silliness!
Let's talk pinball, man. PIN BALL MAAAAAAANNNN!! Rob and Pernell listen to great music from video games based on pinball games, or using pinball game mechanics! And hoo-boy there are a lot of them! Pinball is a unique game that combines dexterity and physics with electronics. Moving this game into the digital world means you can add moving characters, RPG elements, and even blue sparks!
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!
Welcome to the surface of RNP388. We need your help eliminating the alien threat. You alone can stop the invasion armed with your boom-box full of excellent Metroid music!
We decided to change things up a bit this week and invite on of our Patreon members to join us on the show! Alex brought with him some excellent music from all sorts of games, and the Rhythm and Pixels team selected tracks that would accompany each one. We talk Rayman, Ristar, and Rob reminisces on old days working in a arcade.
This week's topic is listener suggested, because "sad robots" sounds cool. Robots have such a hard time in video games. Often they're tortured, and forced to fight their family, even their own creators.
Get together a group of your closest friends, put on your bright-colored spandex suits, and IT'S SUPER SENTAI TIME! We explore the mega-pumped-up music of the classic Japanese kids show that inspired the American after-school kid's shows. Well, we actually go all over the place on this one, but all the tracks are excellent guaranteed!
Rob and Pernell are here to MELT YOUR FACES OFF! But they have to act quickly before they themselves melt into a puddle of video-game-music-goo. This summer we continue celebrating the changing of seasons with music for fire levels! We're talking all things lava pits, flame throwers, and fire type Pokemon. Also, the air conditioning broke just before recording this episode, so enjoy it while it's HOT!
Rob and Pernell hit the ice, run on the field, and serve up some great video game music this week. Pernell hits a slam dunk with music from a golf game, and Rob does a hat-trick with some great music from a golf game! All of these tracks are a straight-up-groove, and Pernell can't contain the funk any longer. Full tracklisting can be found at our website! http://rhythmandpixels.com
