We leave the comfy confines of episode topics and dive head-first into the dangerous waters of video game recommendations! Rob suggests that games that weren’t as bad as you might remember, and Pernell talks about forgotten favorites. It’s an eclectic episode with a surprising amount of Nintendo DS music!
Level 2 The Mall – Skate or Die 2 – NES – Rob Hubbard
Psychopomp – Iconoclasts – PlayStation 4 – Joakim Sandberg
Title – Tetris DS – Nintendo DS – Minako Hamano, Akira Fujiwara
We are seeing so many great new games recently with a retro-aesthetic, and we love it! Whether it’s pixelized 16-bit style artwork, or classic gameplay mechanics, it’s something that we’re drawn to immediately. The music is no different, borrowing from the sounds of past hardware and putting an original spin on it. We talk about music that makes you anxious, human emotions as power-ups, and Pernell does a food dance. Enjoy!
