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.
This episode was recorded in a live stream, which you can watch here unedited! (ALL HAIL THE METRONOME)
When I think of shmups, I think of grazing bullets, exploding pop-corn, 1CC’s, and the STG bible: The Full Extend of the Jam. But let’s get into the music! We’re joined by VGM rock-MASTER Chris Baines to share our favorite 2D shooter music! He shares his love of all things Gradius, and we get into how there’s so many awesome jazz-licks in these games. Wait are you waiting for? ENEMY APPROACHING!
