The Sony PlayStation turned 25 years old this year, so Rob and Pernell spend the episode reminiscing about their favorite PlayStation memories! We look at the launch titles for the PlayStation, and some favorites from the PS2 and PS3! And of course we can’t talk about the PlayStation without talking about rampant piracy. So don’t tell anyone, promise? Yeah we can trust you. Enjoy the show!
Rooftop Battle – Twisted Metal – PlayStation – Chuck E Meyers, Tom Hopkins, Lance Lenhart
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!
Why Donate Blood?
A blood donation truly is a “gift of life” that a healthy individual can give to others in their community who are sick or injured. In one hour’s time, a person can donate one unit of blood that can be separated into four individual components that could help save multiple lives.

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!
This week’s podcast features music so emotional, it drives Pernell into tears and Rob into song. We get serious about our pun-work, and get deep into the funk of the NBA!

This week we listen to games that we all have special memories of. These games may not be our favorites now, but they will always have a special place in our hearts. We talk about when we started appreciating game music, bullet-hell therapy, and why is it that musicians of the HEAVIEST of metal groups are also the chillest! Speaking of which, joining us this week is Final Fantasy metal group Knight of the Round!
Joining us this week is Justin and Adam from the Final Fantasy metal group Knight of The Round! Spanning over a wide variety of the metal genre from classic thrash to modern progressive metal, the four piece delivers many iconic themes from Final Fantasy in the heaviest way possible.
