It's Monday, and that means only one thing. FALCOM SOUND TEAM + VOLUME FULL BLAST! Be prepared for guitars, rock drums, violins, and the baddest synths of the 90s you've ever heard! The long running Ys series has some of the coolest music ever put to video games, and we're here to share the love, enjoy!
No, this isn't the last episode of the podcast, but with all these ending themes you just might not be so sure. This episode features songs with real emotion, sadness, and even humor. No really, stick around for the bonus round, it gets real funny real fast!
To celebrate the new movie Wonder Woman, Rob and Pernell focus on games with strong female protagonists. There is lots of jazz, and argument discussion about the Final Fantasy series. We also form the first emo-jug-band, which is way cooler than it sounds.
Classic Japanese computer systems? We can do that! This week your hosts go on an adventure into awesome FM synth music and a surprising amount of risque RPGs! The NEC PC-98 series of computers were also the birth-place of Touhou Project, so you know there's going to be some great shmup style tracks too! Let's do this!
The show gets a few upgrades and add-ons this week with our focus on the TurboGrafx CD systems! Last week we looked at classic TurboGrafx 16 music, but this week is music in the classic CD audio format Redbook. It gets a little jazzy, a little funky, and then a little crazy with that Riot Zone track. I'm still not sure what's going on there.
Our first podcast of the new year is another game series focus, this time on the epic Ys. Get ready for funky beats, 80s rock jams, and some heavy guitar solos. This episode has got it all. Equip yourself with these great tunes and get ready to level up with Rob and Pernell!
