Okay, where did I put that password. Is it in the back of the game’s manual? Is it on a post-it note stuck to my Gameboy? Oh there it is, of course! I had it tattooed on Pernell so I would never lose it!
This week we get goofy and listen to music composed for password screens and save select screens. Password functions are typically in older game systems that didn’t commonly support full game saves, so many of our tracks are from the classic 8bit and 16bit eras. We also included “save select” music to help cover more ground 🙂 Enjoy the tunes!
This week we focus on the small-ish library of role playing games for the Sega Dreamcast. The Sega Dreamcast is a very special system for both of us. It had some great games, but they were also taking risks with some crazy ones. It was also the system that was around just as the arcades started disappearing, so it makes the Dreamcast arcade-ports that much more important. This episode runs a little bit longer because we have so many personal stories about the system, games, and of course, the music.
The Super VGM Brothers Rob and Pernell and back it again with another great episode, this time focusing on theme music for characters.
Listening to each track is like getting to know a new person, since the theme music carries with it personality and drama from the game. It’s like we have 9 different guests on the show today! Except for that slacker Richard Millman! GET BACK TO WORK MILLMAN!
Theme of Sailor Pluto – Bishoujo Senshi Sailor Moon Super S: Zenin Sanka Shuyaku Soudastusen – Super Famicom – Seisuke Itoh, Hiroo Ikeda, Katsu
We celebrate the holidays with music from snow and ice levels. There are cool keyboard solos and festive bells throughout the tracks to get you in the holiday spirit. So what are you waiting for? Get down with these hot tracks to keep you warm during this cold season!
