Rob and Pernell are here! We're gonna take you for riiiiide! We look at comic book inspired video games, mainly from Marvel comics, and talk about 90s rappers, arcades, and just about anything but comic books! With great VGM power, comes great VGM responsibility. There are some serious jams throughout the episode, you will not be disappointed. Enjoy!
The theme this week is music and games focused around a single word! Well, since there are 2 hosts it's really 2 words. But then they talk for way too long during the intro of the show and that's many more words! Also, stay tuned in through the episode for a fun word-puzzle game that drives Pernell insane!
This week we listen to games that we all have special memories of. These games may not be our favorites now, but they will always have a special place in our hearts. We talk about when we started appreciating game music, bullet-hell therapy, and why is it that musicians of the HEAVIEST of metal groups are also the chillest! Speaking of which, joining us this week is Final Fantasy metal group Knight of the Round!
Football! Football! Football! Why do a focus on just one game of football when we can get all the footballs into one episode! We look at games of soccer, American football, and futbol! Helping us out this week is Michael Bridgewater from the excellent video game podcast Forever Sound Version. We are big fans of his show and excited to have him with us again on this sports-themed monster of an episode. Enjoy!
This week's soundtrack is provided by supporters of Patreon! We talk about our favorite Batmen, and take a look at Pernell's professional RPG speed-running career. Throughout the episode, Pernell attempts to complete Ninja Gaiden 2, and Rob distracts him through the power of modern dance.
Pizza time! This week we exclusively play music suggested exclusively from members of our Patreon! Exclusive! Rob and Pernell haven't recorded in a little while since they've been travelling so much, so there's lots of silly banter and a (too much) singing!
Whether you love to go camping, or chill-out at the beach, vacation is a time to relax and take your mind off responsibilities for a short time. Rob and Pernell pick tunes perfect for your road-trip, or for sitting in the perfect chair reading a good book!
Josh and Keyglyph from The VGM Jukebox podcast have lost their Haunted Jukebox! The only way to find The Haunted Jukebox? With jazz-club inspired video game music! They travel from their Overworld and into Rob and Pernell's listening room! It's a mystery of Scooby-Doo levels, and a cross-over more awesome than when The Flintstones met The Jetsons! Enjoy this extra long cross-over episode, complete with mystery, personal stories, and EXCELLENT MUSIC.
Let's talk pinball, man. PIN BALL MAAAAAAANNNN!! Rob and Pernell listen to great music from video games based on pinball games, or using pinball game mechanics! And hoo-boy there are a lot of them! Pinball is a unique game that combines dexterity and physics with electronics. Moving this game into the digital world means you can add moving characters, RPG elements, and even blue sparks!
t's time to get serious about the square-wave. So let's have the talk... COME ON AND SLAM AND WELCOME TO THE JAM! COME ON AND SLAM IF YOU WANT TO JAM! NES! NES! Rob and Pernell listen to their favorites from the Nintendo Entertainment System! Things get a little silly, and we ask for silly suggestions from Facebook live on the show, get weird with us!
