The podcast goes old-school this week as we compare our favorites from the 16-bit generation of video games! Pernell steps into the ring with killer music from the Super Nintendo. Rob wields a +16 critical Genesis synthesizer, ready to battle! We're not doing a direct comparison of the systems, nor are we arguing which one is best! We are putting together what we think made each system special, and why we still love the music and games today.
No, this isn't the last episode of the podcast, but with all these ending themes you just might not be so sure. This episode features songs with real emotion, sadness, and even humor. No really, stick around for the bonus round, it gets real funny real fast!
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!
