We’ve got an extra special episode for you this week! This one is all about games with movie adaptations. And to make this journey extra special, we’re joined by a very special guest, Mustin! Mustin is a long time member of The OneUps band, founder of Bad Dudes, lover of video game music, and all around excellent guy.
What a weekend! Rob and Pernell present the show to a live audience at Too Many Games! Too Many Games is a 3 day long classic video game convention featuring panels, concerts, and a huge arcade. Enjoy the fun!
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.
This is a nice relaxing episode, one with nothing to worry about. There are no mistakes, only happy VGM accidents. Joining us on the show is Matt Waldron from the Youtube channel Pernell and Matt Play Games! He brings some excellent Splatoon tunes, and great stories about playing Kirby with his daughter.
Last night a DJ saved my life with a 1-up! Our next two episodes will “club music” focused, with this episode being dance music. We’re talking four-to-the-floor beats, massive sub-woofers, and all the glow-sticks you can eat! We also talk about dancing at weddings (which we love to do) and fall in love with Yuzo Koshiro all over again.
How do we find such great video game tracks? Is it the luck of the draw? Is it lady-luck? I think it’s Pernell’s suave and sexy voice that calls out to great music like a siren song.
Rabbit season! Duck season! Video game music season. Rob and Pernell dig into some great tunes from games about Looney Tunes! Pernell does some calisthenics, and Rob can’t stop talking about the amazing music of Alberto Jose “get-up-and-jam” Gonzalez.
Seriously though, don’t sleep on this one, there rae some amazing musical gems covered in this week’s episode.
