To celebrate the new movie Wonder Woman, Rob and Pernell focus on games with strong female protagonists. There is lots of jazz, and argument discussion about the Final Fantasy series. We also form the first emo-jug-band, which is way cooler than it sounds.
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.
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.
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.
How do we find such great video game tracks? Is it the luck of the draw? Is it lady-luck? I think it’s Pernell’s suave and sexy voice that calls out to great music like a siren song.
You thought you could have it all. You bet it all, went all in. AND NOW YOU’RE BUSTED! This week on the show, it’s music themes from games where you are flat broke! Or just flattened, or something like that. Rob had a really hard time with this one haha! Enjoy the show!
Ah February, a time for romance and freezing your butt-off. This week on the show, Rob plays beautiful romantic songs from the Super Nintendo/Famicom. And on the other side of things, Pernell plays tragic and sad tracks to bring us all back to reality
We got another great topic this week from one of our fantastic listeners! Well, we expanded on it a little, because there were some tracks we really wanted to play on the show 🙂 Our focus is on music outside of the action and drama, and instead on times where you’re encouraged to take a moment for yourself.
Happy new year everyone! Thanks for coming back for another great year of video game music. It means a great deal to us that you’re still listening and enjoying the show! This week we do another composer focus, this time on one of Konami’s greats, Mihciru Yamane! Enjoy!
Happy holidays everyone! Your podcast-friends here at Rhythm and Pixels celebrate the only way they know how, with great video game music! There’s surprises, presents, and Rob’s elf application to the North Pole. It’s a podcast miracle!
Happy podcastiversary! Put on your best clothes and grab your party hat, let’s celebrate in style! This week we look back at some great episodes, and great music. We each pick our top 5 (but not Pernell) and dance, sing, and talk about superstar-sports-athlete Bo Jackson!
Thank you everyone for
Internet! Are you ready to ROCK! What started as an episode of great guitar riffs, turned into general rock music found in video games. As usual Rob digs into the classic 8 and 16 bit generations, and Pernell shares some of his favorite Falcom Sound Team tunes. Let’s jam!
This week your hosts listen to music from sky and air themed stages. These are parts of games that are not entirely about the sky, but these sections are in the clouds. Pernell tries to get his head around the realities of Little Nemo, and Rob channels his inner 90s RnB singer in what might be his favorite track of the year.
You did it! This is your time, this is all for you. This is your video game music victory. We listen to great music composed for celebratory sections of games. Not necessarily RPGs, but any game where you have become victorious.
We’re joined this week again by our good friend Matt Waldron of Pernell and Matt Play Games! He brings some great tunes, and some great discussion. He’s a great guy! Check our his show on Youtube!
Rob and Pernell choose great video game music RNG style this week, but not really. This week it’s all about picking those tracks that just haven’t fit in other topics. These are the tracks they’ve been sitting on, waiting for them to hatch into the perfect podcast. This is that podcast! Also there’s a huge tangent about Back To The Future 2 for some reason, so look out for that 🙂
This week Rob and Pernell pick tracks that would be great for your yoga class, spa weekend, or after-work decompression. We’re looking at anything that’s relaxing, atmospheric, and ambient. Please listen responsibly.
Gears, robots, machinery! (machina yah?) It’s machine music for mechanical stages in video games! There’s singing! Dancing! Rob mentions Turbo Teen! Pernell pitches the Back To The Future reboot with Yuzo Koshiro instead of Chuck Berry! It’s a good time.
Rhythm and Pixels bring the heat this summer with some sexy slow jams. Cuddle up with someone you love, and listen to great video game music!
It’s party time! Come celebrate the half-way point of “podcast world 4” with some great party music. We listen to tracks from amusement parks, celebrations, and parties. Some are more of a stretch than others, but it’s all great music!
Who’s the boss!? No, we’re not talking Tony Danza. We’re talking the great boss fights and boss fight music of video games! It starts out all fun and games until the R&P brothers slowly get emotional talking about the all the bosses they’ve encountered. So make sure you’ve saved your game, stocked full of health potions, and get in on the fun! It’s music time.
