Episode 20-5 Gameboy Advance with Michael Bridgewater


Let’s take a look at one of Nintendo’s greatest mobile game consoles, the Gameboy Advance! Chunky bass, fuzzy drums, and smooth, buttery strings. Soundtracks on the system are fantastic, though the machine’s hardware made it difficult for everything to sound as clean as it could. So let’s dig in, find some diamonds in the rough, and enjoy the music of the Nintendo Gameboy Advance!

We’re joined by Michael Bridgewater, of the VGM podcast Forever Sound Version, to help us find the greatest tracks. We talk about European/North American game localization, jungle massive music, and some demoscene bits as well! It’s always a blast having Michael on the show, we think you’ll have a good time too!
