This week’s show is all about that fast part of the game. You know, THAT part. Where your heart speeds up and suddenly everything you learned flies right out your brain. There are moments in games that make you PANIC, and sometimes it’s not the game. Sometimes it’s your opponent. (Pernell) And your opponent (Pernell) is somehow better (WAY better) at these puzzle games for some reason! Let’s listen!
This week we sit down and talk with the heads of PM Studios, publisher of great music games like Cytus Alpha, Deemo, the DJMAX series, and other great titles like Mercenaries Saga Chronicles and the upcoming Horizon Chase Turbo! We talk about their love of games and music, how they got started in the industry, and who has the most platinum trophies on the PlayStation Network!
It’s raining outside! That means we need to stay inside all day and play video games! Darn! Rob and Pernell share their favorite rainy-day themed music! Rain used in games as back-drops to set the mood and create a unique atmosphere, so the music is composed accordingly. Pernell shares his thoughts on his panels at Anime Central, and they both discuss the effects of time travel.

We’re on a diet this week, eating nothing but salads! We have no topic this week, just excellent listener-suggested music! We give a preference to our Patreon subscribers, as this recording was streamed live for all of our supporters! We talk about our favorite racing games, Rob mispronounces MANY names, and there’s a ton of singing. So much singing! Enjoy the show!
