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!
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!
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! All tracks featured in the show this week were submissions by members of our Patreon! So we'd like to thank: Chris Schrenstrom, Chris Steenerson, Ok Impala!, Electricboogaloo, Wicked Sephiroth, and Morten Gangso, and That Nick Walker!. Thank you all so much!
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!
Sit down on our couch, close your eyes, and tell us about your dreams. We listen to music from games based on dreams, games about dreams, and music designed to put you in a dream-like state. Also, Pernell is coming after Best Buy, lots of broccoli talk, and music that ranges from chill to insane.
We listen to video game music with brass instruments, front and center. This means trombones, saxophones, and trumpets! Expect music from across the game console spectrum, from the SNES to the Sega Saturn, we've got it!
Framed for a crime we're 99% sure they didn't commit, Rob and Pernell listen to music on the run. Looking for their arch-nemesis, the criminal that set the police on their trail. And their enemies in their path.
Football! Football! Football! Why do a focus on just one game of football when we can get all the footballs into one episode! We look at games of soccer, American football, and futbol! Helping us out this week is Michael Bridgewater from the excellent video game podcast Forever Sound Version. We are big fans of his show and excited to have him with us again on this sports-themed monster of an episode. Enjoy!
Dark clouds are looming over this podcast, something's happening. Something great and terrible! On this week's episode we listen to moody and suspenseful music, perfect to ramp-up the tension on an otherwise fun and friendly podcast. But of course we can't hold it in, and this episode features more singing and silliness than ever! To help us out this week we're joined by game composer Erik Desiderio (Anshar Online, Diablo III: Rise of the Necromancer, Adventure Time VR) Erik is an award-winnner composer for film, TV, and of course, video games!
