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!
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.
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.
We decided to change things up a bit this week and invite on of our Patreon members to join us on the show! Alex brought with him some excellent music from all sorts of games, and the Rhythm and Pixels team selected tracks that would accompany each one. We talk Rayman, Ristar, and Rob reminisces on old days working in a arcade.
Brass! Strings! Percussion! This week we listen to music inspired by the classics, though we often find classical pieces adapted for video games. So why not showcase a little bit of both! Also, Rob tries-out for a position at NPR and Pernell has a serious Persona addiction.
You thought you could have it all. You bet it all, went all in. AND NOW YOU’RE BUSTED! This week on the show, it’s music themes from games where you are flat broke! Or just flattened, or something like that. Rob had a really hard time with this one haha! Enjoy the show!
Ah February, a time for romance and freezing your butt-off. This week on the show, Rob plays beautiful romantic songs from the Super Nintendo/Famicom. And on the other side of things, Pernell plays tragic and sad tracks to bring us all back to reality
Rob and Pernell are back together in the studio, and ready to rock this podcast! This week’s topic is “Memories”, meaning anything that triggers specific memories for us, personal or gaming related. So this one gets a little heavy on the nostalgia. Pernell gets nostalgic for the old east coast Bemani scene, and Rob gets nostalgic for old audio formats.
This episode is composer-focused, we only play tracks originally composed by Namco alumni Junko Ozawa. Her work ranges from Namco arcade classics like Rolling Thunder and PacMania, all the way to Klonoa for the Playstation. There’s old and new classics to be found in this episode, so grab your headphones and get into it!
Boo! It’s that time of the year to thinking about spooky-scary things. Things like ghosts and goblins, draculas, wolfmen, and mad-mad-mad-mad-scientists! Let Rob and Pernell be your guides into the haunted house of video game music! Happy Halloween everyone!
Are you lost? Not sure where the next is? Let Pernell, THE HUMAN GPS, help you to your next destination! World map, overworld map, all the maps, it’s map music. We find that our picks compliment each other in their happiness, friendliness, and then darkness. These maps get dark yo.
You did it! This is your time, this is all for you. This is your video game music victory. We listen to great music composed for celebratory sections of games. Not necessarily RPGs, but any game where you have become victorious.
We’re joined this week again by our good friend Matt Waldron of Pernell and Matt Play Games! He brings some great tunes, and some great discussion. He’s a great guy! Check our his show on Youtube!
Roll some dice, flip some cards, and ruin your relationships! That’s what board games is all about. This week we focus on board games in video game form. They could be video game versions of existing board games, or video games designed as board games.
Pernell gets nostalgic with some Top Shop action, and Rob picks all Japanese Super Famicom tracks. They both can’t stop dancing to the Mega Ran track at the end. Enjoy!
This week Rob and Pernell pick tracks that would be great for your yoga class, spa weekend, or after-work decompression. We’re looking at anything that’s relaxing, atmospheric, and ambient. Please listen responsibly.
Rhythm and Pixels bring the heat this summer with some sexy slow jams. Cuddle up with someone you love, and listen to great video game music!
It’s party time! Come celebrate the half-way point of “podcast world 4” with some great party music. We listen to tracks from amusement parks, celebrations, and parties. Some are more of a stretch than others, but it’s all great music!
Who’s the boss!? No, we’re not talking Tony Danza. We’re talking the great boss fights and boss fight music of video games! It starts out all fun and games until the R&P brothers slowly get emotional talking about the all the bosses they’ve encountered. So make sure you’ve saved your game, stocked full of health potions, and get in on the fun! It’s music time.
We have got a great show for you this week, it’s a full episode of special introductions to your favorite games! Rob and Pernell introduce each other, and then describe the final season of Family Matters that was never aired. There’s also a special musical treat for you at the very end of the show. Sometimes we end up recording very late, and things start getting a little too much like Little Nemo’s dream world than we’d like.

Let us tell you a tale, a tale of a fantastic video game music composer and his love of progressive rock. This week on the show Rob and Pernell focus on a single composer, Motoi Sakuraba! We play tracks spanning nearly 2 decades of his VGM history.
What else can we say other than: It’s go time!

Streets! Inns! Shopping! Towns have it all! Music for these more peaceful areas of games are often relaxing and pleasant, but it will still reflect the themes and tone of the story. There’s also talk of Muppet Babies and Suikoden on the water.
