Rob and Pernell dig deep into their gaming past and find the very best that no one ever was. That’s right, you knew it was coming, it’s the Rhythm and Pixels decade in review! Sort of kind of!

Dark clouds are looming over this podcast, something’s happening. Something great and terrible! On this week’s episode we listen to moody and suspenseful music, perfect to ramp-up the tension on an otherwise fun and friendly podcast. But of course we can’t hold it in, and this episode features more singing and silliness than ever!
To help us out this week we’re joined by game composer Erik Desiderio (Anshar Online, Diablo III: Rise of the Necromancer, Adventure Time VR) Erik is an award-winnner composer for film, TV, and of course, video games!
