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.
When I think of shmups, I think of grazing bullets, exploding pop-corn, 1CC's, and the STG bible: The Full Extend of the Jam. But let's get into the music! We're joined by VGM rock-MASTER Chris Baines to share our favorite 2D shooter music! He shares his love of all things Gradius, and we get into how there's so many awesome jazz-licks in these games. Wait are you waiting for? ENEMY APPROACHING!
Classic Japanese computer systems? We can do that! This week your hosts go on an adventure into awesome FM synth music and a surprising amount of risque RPGs!
