Grab your baguettes and arm yourself with scones! It’s time for a food fight! We tackle music around food-related stages and characters, and it gets messy! We talk about what makes a great salad, the problems with 3D Sonic The Hedgehog games, and why there are so many chefs who become great martial artists.
And also… Gonzalo Varela, the composer of Fight’N Rage!
This week we feature a special interview with the composer of the new game Fight’N Rage: Gonzalo Varela! We chat about his composition process, influences, and how much his music impacted gameplay!

This week we focus on the small-ish library of role playing games for the Sega Dreamcast. The Sega Dreamcast is a very special system for both of us. It had some great games, but they were also taking risks with some crazy ones. It was also the system that was around just as the arcades started disappearing, so it makes the Dreamcast arcade-ports that much more important. This episode runs a little bit longer because we have so many personal stories about the system, games, and of course, the music.
