We've done it! Three years of podcasts, video game music, and friendship! Let's reflect back on our favorite tracks and episodes of the last year, you may be surprised at what we pick! There's celebratory beverages, behind-the-scenes podcast stories, and fun trivia quizzes which Pernell is way too good at.
Episode 14-5 Creative Games with Chris Baines
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!
Episode 14-3 Fishing Music
Let's listen to music for fish! We're talking about classic fishing video games, and even some mini-games about fishing within other games. SO MANY FISH. No matter what angle we come at it, we find super-chill, jazzy, and always positive music. Special shout-out to listener Wicked Sephiroth for the track suggestions which spawned this whopper of an episode! (pun intended)

Episode 12-2 Retro Tributes
We are seeing so many great new games recently with a retro-aesthetic, and we love it! Whether it's pixelized 16-bit style artwork, or classic gameplay mechanics, it's something that we're drawn to immediately. The music is no different, borrowing from the sounds of past hardware and putting an original spin on it.
Episode 11-4 Podcastiversary 2!
It's been (ITS BEEN) TWO YEARS of the podcast, so it's time for another celebration! But didn't you just celebrate 100 episodes? We did! Who cares! Rob and Pernell pick their top 5 songs of the past year, pop bottles, laugh uncontrollably at Pernell's fake curse-words, and discover that Andore is the Sorting-Hat of the Mad Gear gang. Thanks to a gift from a special listener, things go a little off the rails.
Episode 11-2 Beat’em Ups 2 with Masikus!
Brawlers. Beat'em ups. Punchy-kicky men. These are all terms for a popular style of arcade game that brings kids together, and tears families apart. Okay so I'm making some of this stuff up. This is our second look at the popular beat-em-up genre, but this time with no system restrictions.
Episode 10-4 PC RPG Music with WASD
You! Traveler! Stop there! You may not enter the town of Pernellshire without first collecting some items I require. My family has been attacked by orcs, and I need you to collect 50 squirrel skins. There, off you go! No use standing around. Go on then.
Episode 9-10 Desert Music
It's still summer time, so let's get these podcasts heated up! Wait, slow down! It's getting too hot! We throw down our favorite musical selections, competing for "Most Dry", and "Most Dehydrated".
