Episode 20-5 Gameboy Advance with Michael Bridgewater

Download


Let’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!

Download


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.

TheMadGear

Rising from the streets, crawling out of the slums, a force known as The Mad Gear is gaining critical mass in Turbo Citysince 2014. They are draped in leather and denim, and armed with the toughest tunes from video games past, and original compositions of their own.
