LMH Mixtape #61: Animals

Feel the Tiger Instinct all over again with this mixtape rendition of LMH Episode 61: Animals.  Determining which games fit this theme was surprisingly complicated as Rob questioned whether monkeys were too evolutionarily similar to humans to qualify and Brent puzzled over what the protagonist of Sutte Hakkun even is.  In the end, however, they settled on a setlist that represented a nice variety of musical genres as well as creatures great and small.

Episode 192: Pinball Music

For one episode only, Brent and Rob do an entire focus on arcade pinball machine music.  They limit the range to 1992 and before to preserve the legacy aesthetic usually featured on the show.  As pinball was never prominent in Japan, it happens to be an all western composer focus as well.  Lots of good music here and more tracks than usual.  Full track listing below.

Episode 191: Sensing Things

For Episode 191, Brent and Rob didn’t have a very good internet connection, so they didn’t use video to see each other (despite what's shown in the photo below).  So since they were going audio only, they had to psychically sense any visual things that might be happening.  They also talk about Italian video games and open some user donated gifts.  A lot of tributes on this episode, as well.  Full track listing below.
