Pull up a bar-stool and get comfortable, it's time for some light tavern-themed music! Adventurers are resting a while at the bar, and there's plenty of singing (and hand-clapping) to keep your spirits up! Of course, there's a little disagreement brewing. Just a little pizza-related disagreement in which Pernell is absolutely wrong about Chicago-style deep dish pizza and Rob is right. Mainly because Rob writes the web page and Pernell can't stop him!!!! muahahahahahahahHAHAHHAHAHAHAA!

This week is all about fighting games produced by SNK. We discover hard rock, smooth jazz, euro-beat, and even early 90s positive-rap! The Bonus-Round is OFF THE HOOK, you can't miss this one!
Helping us make sense of it all, we're joined by VGM expert and podcast master: Ed Wilson! (The VGMbassy, Impulse Project, PixelTunes Radio) Ed brings the class this show desperately needed! His vast knowledge of game systems, hardware, and composers... and we just sing silly songs and crack jokes.
et's take a look at one of Nintendo's greatest mobile game consoles, the Gameboy Advance! Chunky bass, fuzzy drums, and smooth, buttery strings. Soundtracks on the system are fantastic, though the machine's hardware made it difficult for everything to sound as clean as it could. So let's dig in, find some diamonds in the rough, and enjoy the music of the Nintendo Gameboy Advance!
We're joined by Michael Bridgewater, of the VGM podcast Forever Sound Version, to help us find the greatest tracks. We talk about European/North American game localization, jungle massive music, and some demoscene bits as well! It's always a blast having Michael on the show, we think you'll have a good time too!
For the past few years, Michael has been streaming a 24 hour gaming marathon for charity! Playing the absolute strangest-of-the-strange to raise money for the UK organization Freedom From Torture https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/weirdgames2019
Villains are just plain terrible. Sometimes they're trying to end the world, sometimes they're turning woodland creatures into evil robots. But mostly all they want is to bring back swing music in the 90s, big brass bands and all. We have Cameron from The Mad Gear and joining us to sing along with these villainous hits, and think back fondly of all the bad guys who tried to destroy us.
We listen to video game music with brass instruments, front and center. This means trombones, saxophones, and trumpets! Expect music from across the game console spectrum, from the SNES to the Sega Saturn, we've got it!
Josh and Keyglyph from The VGM Jukebox podcast have lost their Haunted Jukebox! The only way to find The Haunted Jukebox? With jazz-club inspired video game music!
They travel from their Overworld and into Rob and Pernell's listening room! It's a mystery of Scooby-Doo levels, and a cross-over more awesome than when The Flintstones met The Jetsons!
Enjoy this extra long cross-over episode, complete with mystery, personal stories, and EXCELLENT MUSIC.
