Our musical theme this week may sound morbid, but we swear we're coming from a good place! The theme is all things blood related! Characters who drink blood, fighting games that draw blood, and hospitals that need blood. That means everything from smooth, sexy jams, to heavy hitting 16-bit classics, to old-school hip-hop!
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!
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!
Grab your zippers, chains, and Mickey Mouse hats! We are here to celebrate the release of Kingdom Hearts 3 with a super-special episode of Kingdom Hearts music! Superstar musician and Kingdom Hearts expert Key Jay is here to help us make sense of the story and timeline. If you listen closely, you can hear the point where are brains break!
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!
Get in your jumpsuit and climb in your 50 foot tall robot, it's time to save the world! Invaders from another planet are threatening our music, and we must stop them with our only defense! Great video game music with no topic restrictions!
During a time of the year when everyone is putting on masks, turning out the lights, and scaring each other silly, we are here for you! This week we listen to Halloween-themed music suggested from our Patreon members! Our music picks this week come from: Bobby Aarsen, Electricboogaloo, WickedSephiroth, Souless009, David Smith, Daniel Laughton, Henrik Anderson, and OK Imapala!
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.
Yo Dawg, did you ever play a game and want to make another game inside of that game? We're talking all things creativity and listening to the music that accompanies your game building fun!
It's raining outside! That means we need to stay inside all day and play video games! Darn! Rob and Pernell share their favorite rainy-day themed music! Rain used in games as back-drops to set the mood and create a unique atmosphere, so the music is composed accordingly. Pernell shares his thoughts on his panels at Anime Central, and they both discuss the effects of time travel.
