We’ve been cooking all day, and we can’t wait for our guests to arrive. This will be a dinner party to remember! And you will! Because this is dinner party HARD MODE. Pick the right appetizer, eat the correct soup. Or there will be horrible (hilarious) consequences! I mean… this week’s show is all about music you can play in the background of your next dinner party! Also this week is the return of “Rob’s Trivia Time!” Can you guess the game from the Nintendo Power tagline? Let us know how you did!

Pernell loves RPG games and starts more than he could ever finish, and Rob likes them okay. And that’s okay! All this month we’re being a little selfish and only looking at our favorite games within specific genres. Pernell’s music gets heavy and stressful at times, while Rob’s music picks are jazzy and are designed to keep you cool under pressure. Enjoy the selections!
Our podcast this week features only music composed by the prolific artist Noriyuki Iwadare! We find some great tracks in this episode, exploring not only his most famous games like Grandia and Langrisser, but also some interesting Japan-only titles on the PlayStation! Things go a little off the rails once we get into 90’s-TV-sitcom-mode and Pernell finds his groove. Enjoy the music!
