HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Grab your keyboards let’s celebrate all the great things Yamaha did for classic game consoles and computer systems! We focus strictly on FM synth music composed for games, particularly anything with big chunky bass and funked up keyboard leads!

We are joined this week by FM synth aficionado, Ed! Not only is he an avid admirer for the synths, he is the co-host of the excellent demo-scene podcast The Impulse Project. AND the co-host of the also excellent VGM podcast PixelTunes Radio! Also be sure to check out his VGM archives at this super fantastic link right here at ffshrines.

Episode 6-4 Dreamcast RPGs

episode_artwork54

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.

Track list:

  1. Theme of R-720 – Segagaga – Dreamcast – Tsuyoshi Kaneko, Hirsohi Kawaguchi, Masato Nakamura
  2. Commercial Town Lilig Apparent Prosperity – Grandia II – Dreamcast – Noriyuki Iwadare
  3. Eastokion (Town) – E.G.G. Elemental Gimmick Gear – Dreamcast – Haruyoshi Rokudo
  4. Boss Battle Crisis/Opportunity- Skies of Arcadia – Dreamcast – Yutaka Minobe, Tatsuyuki Maeda
  5. Crypt Maze – Evolution 2 – Dreamcast – Masaharu Iwata
  6. Empty Space Out of Control Part 1 – Phantasy Star Online – Dreamcast – Hideaki Kobayashi
  7. Air Pirates (Skies of Arcadia) – Mykah
  8. Ragol Weather (Image of Hero) Remix – zircon
  9. Dream – Lack of Love (L.O.L.) – Dreamcast – Ryuichi Sakamoto
