This week's podcast is extra-retro with classic game music and classic stories of renting games in the 90's! We discuss the difficulty of completing games before returning them to the store, not to mention the fate of our save games while battling through long RPGs! Go microwave-up some popcorn and Google those instruction manuals, it's time to reflect on some classic game rental moments!
Long ago... Before humanity came into existence. Two friends set out on a quest for great music. But they became lost inside the world of great video game music! It's been a very long time since we've done an entire show focused on a single game, or even a series. So here is our tribute to all things La-Mulana! La-Mulana is an ENORMOUS side-scrolling adventure game with great puzzles, huge bosses, and great puzzles! Did I mention the puzzles? Joining us this is week is Carlos from the Heroes Three podcast! Heroes Three is a bi-weekly show centered on Asian cinema and martial arts movies! Check them out!
The environmental activists in us come out in this week's podcast. Well, it definitely comes out of Pernell. Rob was confused and got creative with his music picks for this week. There are some great tunes in this episode, so enjoy!
This week on the podcast we're joined by a pair of indie game developers to talk about the classics that influenced all of video games. Some of our choices are a little more obvious than others, but that's what makes it fun!

Finally hit your dead-lift PR while screaming the melodies from your favorite Falcom Sound Team songs? We talk all about that, and answer your questions from Facebook on this episode!
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!
As I walked into the arcade, my senses were assaulted by the stench of quarters and competition. Yeah, that feels right! Smokey offices, late nights, and trench coats. We're on the case! This week's show we listen to, and investigate, detective game music!
When we got our first cell phones, the first thing we did was try and get video game music on there! So when your friend calls you up, you hear some nice melodies from Koji Kondo. This episode all about the music we've chosen to be our ringtones over the years. We also hold many victory celebrations for unfortunate life events, and Rob talks way to much about DDR at the beginning.
Do you have a favorite video game song or jingle you've used for your phone's ringtone? Let us know!
Disney and video games go together like peanut butter and chocolate. And you've got to love the old-school Capcom disney games, but what about games outside of Capcom? What about games that aren't about specific characters or shows, but just "Princesses" who knows! Rob and Pernell are joined by Mike and Justin from XVGM Radio to take a deep dive into the world of Disney, music, and absolute silliness!
This week on the podcast we listen to music from games based on cartoons! Mainly 90s cartoons, about saving the environment, and selling toys. Lots of toys! Rob quizzes Pernell on his video game knowledge, and Pernell goes off on the insane episodes of the Super Mario Bros. super show cartoon!
