This week on the show we listen to music from games based on what we call The Geek Trifecta: Anime, American Comic Books, and Cosplay! We talk about anime conventions of long ago, and anime of long ago. We also have lots to catch up on at the top of the show, so I hope you don’t mind a little preamble 🙂 Enjoy!
For those who are about to Rockman, we salute you! This is the podcast’s second dive into video game rock music, and this time it’s personal. Pernell gives blood just before recording, so you’re in for an extra special treat. Rob sings his favorite fighting game moves, and Pernell reminisces about childhood games played in his neighborhood. (it’s amazing we survived our childhood)
