This week we take a second look at music composed specifically for world maps in games. We are honored to have a musical guest joining us, Amanda Lepre from the band Descendants of Erdrick! She brings her vast musical insight and love of fantasy RPG's to the conversation. We discuss how important it is for world map music to create the mood, emotionally setting up the player for a new section of the game.
You're training hard, but there isn't enough time to show everyone? That's when you need a montage! We're talking tough-hard-hitting music for boxers to work out to. But we're also talking about fun, harmonica-filled jams for the end of a 90s sitcom. Like Family Matters. What if that actually was Carl Winslow helping out Bruce Willis in Die Hard?
It's been a long week, so we hit the freestyle button and listen to game tunes with no topic restrictions.
This week the super podcast brothers are joined by members from the VGM cover band Rare Candy to talk about all things Final Fantasy! We listen to tracks from nearly every console the series made an appearance. We also end up discussing the finer points of arranging video game tunes for the band, playing Gameboy in long car rides, and what qualities truly make up a "Pernell Track". It was great fun to record, we hope you enjoy it!
Okay, where did I put that password. Is it in the back of the game's manual? Is it on a post-it note stuck to my Gameboy? Oh there it is, of course! I had it tattooed on Pernell so I would never lose it!
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!
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.
