Episode 197: Friends

While Rob is in France, Brent (and Gabe and Trevor) is joined by friends Andrew Michaan and Mike Fischer.  In this episode, Brent plays a decent amount of music from games he’s been playing lately, Andrew intentionally uses corny phrases to express positivity, and more information is shared as the Green Lantern saga continues.  But mainly, they all just focus on the music and joke around a bit.  Full track listing below.

Episode 196: Beyond 16-Bit 3

Brent’s brothers join in for Rob and Brent’s third-time focus on video game music from the fifth generation and beyond.  Rob does play a significant amount of Game Boy Color games, however, while each of Brent’s selections are from a different console -overall, the episode ends up sounding more retro than one would expect.  NOTE: When Rob mentions Tamayo Kawamoto, Brent would have immediately recognized her name from the work she did on games like Ghouls 'n Ghosts and Legendary Wings, but due to a technical error with the audio feed, Brent didn’t hear everything Rob said.  Full track listing below.
