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!
Stage of Final Fight ~ Needle – Capcom vs SNK Millennium Fight 2000 – Dreamcast – Satoshi Ise

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.
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!
Watch out for a bonus episode later this week called Pixel Plays with Pernell! We are spinning-off short little podcast episodes where Pernell talks to Rob about some awesome games he’s playing. These will eventually get their own podcast feed, or even a YouTube show, but the first few episodes will be right here, so look out for that!
