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.
This week on the podcast we're joined by a pair of indie game developers to talk about the classics that influenced all of video games. Some of our choices are a little more obvious than others, but that's what makes it fun!
Blake Edwards (Nomppie) is developing Ways Lost, a deck building RPG with rogue-like elements! AJ Wash is a composer working with Blake, helping him bring the world of Ways Lost to life!
This episode we listen to music from our all time favorite platform games! We are out there, collecting coins and rings, just trying to make it in this podcast world. Pernell mastered the double-jump just to reach the 1-Up, while Rob focused all his energy on the super-sonic-spin-dash, just to run head first into spikes! Also, on a very special episode of Everybody Loves Rayman, we learn that Super Meat Boy is racing to save the Sonic the Hedgehog franchise from a terrible movie.
