What sport couldn't be improved by a Spinning Pile Driver? Or maybe just a handful of Dragon Punches? Baseball would certainly be more interesting. This week on the podcast we listen to music from our favorite fighting games! We cover everything from 2D to 3D, from the 90s all the way to today's baddest-brawlers. As a special treat, Rob gets extra nerdy about hip-hop samples! There's a fair amount of rapping in this episode, and this time not from Pernell! Enjoy the show!
This week's topic is all bout sneaking around, breaking and entering, and ... E-Sports??? We talk about summer time at the beach, bank heists, bunny-people, and the greatest professional Korean gamer of all time.
Jump around, jump around, jump around-yeah! This week we listen to classic hip-hop, and classic hip-hop inspired, video game music! It gets funky, it gets heavy, and then it gets cheesey... oh boy it gets cheesey in places 🙂 We are joined by the talented producer and video game composer, 2 Mello! (2064 Read Only Memories, Celeste) He wanted to jump on our show and talk about the cross-over of video games into hip-hop, and sometimes vice-versa. We talk about the use of samples, old hardware, and our favorite Jet Set Radio characters.
The first episode recorded in our new studio, we take a deep-dive into music for fighting games. Great music to punch your friend in the face to!
Join us into the first episode 12 ever recorded, exclusively for world 12. We hit the multiplication tables and talk edutainment video games in this podcast! Do you know what makes educational games more interesting? HEAVY BEATS AND HEAVY SYNTHS. The kids will love it!
This episode is all about monsters in video games! Rob thinks it's about games where you play as monsters, and Pernell thinks it's about games where the focus is destroying monsters. Will this misunderstanding finally end their friendship!? Spoiler! Nothing can ruin their friendship. They talk about how to describe music and attempt to find more uses for the word ignorant.
You're training hard, but there isn't enough time to show everyone? That's when you need a montage! We're talking tough-hard-hitting music for boxers to work out to. But we're also talking about fun, harmonica-filled jams for the end of a 90s sitcom. Like Family Matters. What if that actually was Carl Winslow helping out Bruce Willis in Die Hard?
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.
Rob and Pernell listen to great music from fighting games.
