It was great fun to record, we hope you enjoy it!
Episode 9-6 Password and Save Select

Episode 8-10 Neo Geo
The Neo Geo is not only known for beautiful 2d sprite artwork, but also amazing music. You know the Neo Geo, you'd see the big red cabinet in the arcades, 4 brightly colored buttons, and often multiple games in the same system. Let's dig in and have some fun!

Episode 8-6 Classical Music
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.

Episode 8-3: Lounge Music
We're all danced out, so it's time to hit the lounge. We focus on another musical sub-genre of sorts, the chilled-out jazzy lounge music. It gets a little funky, it gets a little "elevator", but it's all so good.
Episode 8-2: Dance Music
Last night a DJ saved my life with a 1-up! Our next two episodes will "club music" focused, with this episode being dance music.

We also talk about dancing at weddings (which we love to do) and fall in love with Yuzo Koshiro all over again.
Episode 8-1 Zelda-alikes
This week on the show we focus on something familiar. We want Zelda games, but don't want Zelda games, you know what I mean? These are games similar to the classic "Link To The Past" or "Link's Awakening" styles, but not featuring our iconic hero. Enjoy this week's adventure games that are not Zelda!
Episode 7-10 Sad Robots
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.

Get together a group of your closest friends, put on your bright-colored spandex suits, and IT'S SUPER SENTAI TIME!

Well, we actually go all over the place on this one, but all the tracks are excellent guaranteed!

How do we find such great video game tracks? Is it the luck of the draw? Is it lady-luck? I think it's Pernell's suave and sexy voice that calls out to great music like a siren song.

Episode 7-4 Squalor
You thought you could have it all. You bet it all, went all in. AND NOW YOU'RE BUSTED! This week on the show, it's music themes from games where you are flat broke! Or just flattened, or something like that. Rob had a really hard time with this one haha! Enjoy the show!

Episode 6-2 TurboGrafx CD
The show gets a few upgrades and add-ons this week with our focus on the TurboGrafx CD systems! Last week we looked at classic TurboGrafx 16 music, but this week is music in the classic CD audio format Redbook. It gets a little jazzy, a little funky, and then a little crazy with that Riot Zone track. I'm still not sure what's going on there.

This week your hosts listen to music from sky and air themed stages. These are parts of games that are not entirely about the sky, but these sections are in the clouds. Pernell tries to get his head around the realities of Little Nemo, and Rob channels his inner 90s RnB singer in what might be his favorite track of the year.
Episode 5-5 Map Themes
Are you lost? Not sure where the next is? Let Pernell, THE HUMAN GPS, help you to your next destination! World map, overworld map, all the maps, it's map music. We find that our picks compliment each other in their happiness, friendliness, and then darkness. These maps get dark yo.
