This is a nice relaxing episode, one with nothing to worry about. There are no mistakes, only happy VGM accidents. Joining us on the show is Matt Waldron from the Youtube channel Pernell and Matt Play Games! He brings some excellent Splatoon tunes, and great stories about playing Kirby with his daughter.
Brass! Strings! Percussion! This week we listen to music inspired by the classics, though we often find classical pieces adapted for video games. So why not showcase a little bit of both! Also, Rob tries-out for a position at NPR and Pernell has a serious Persona addiction.
This week’s topic is listener suggested, because “sad robots” sounds cool. Robots have such a hard time in video games. Often they’re tortured, and forced to fight their family, even their own creators.
Rob and Pernell throw out their comfortable themed podcast format, and dive into the dangerous world of zero-theme for a second time. But this time, it’s personal.
Who’s the boss!? No, we’re not talking Tony Danza. We’re talking the great boss fights and boss fight music of video games! It starts out all fun and games until the R&P brothers slowly get emotional talking about the all the bosses they’ve encountered. So make sure you’ve saved your game, stocked full of health potions, and get in on the fun! It’s music time.
Sometimes you float, sometimes you swim, but usually you just die instantly! This week on the podcast we listen to great music used in video game water levels. Our selections range from chill to heavy rock, but still all sound watery!
Grab your swimsuit and goggles, the Rhythm and Pixels are going into the VGM deep end!
