It’s Monday, and that means only one thing. FALCOM SOUND TEAM + VOLUME FULL BLAST! Be prepared for guitars, rock drums, violins, and the baddest synths of the 90s you’ve ever heard! The long running Ys series has some of the coolest music ever put to video games, and we’re here to share the love, enjoy!
Musician, gamer, and cat-lover Chris Baines returns to gush over every drum fill, piano counter-melody, and bass guitar solo. He is a great guy, good friend, and okay Magical Drop player, and a bad-ass multi-instrumentalist. Check out his work here!

You’re training hard, but there isn’t enough time to show everyone? That’s when you need a montage! We’re talking tough-hard-hitting music for pumping iron. But we’re also talking about fun, harmonica-filled jams for the end of a 90s sitcom. Like Family Matters. What if that actually was Carl Winslow helping out Bruce Willis in Die Hard? We ask the tough questions.
Joining us on the show is Cameron from the video game cover band The Mad Gear! Cameron brings his wealth of game and music knowledge to the table and pushes it to the limit!
Check out their awesome music video, The World Warrior! It rules!
