Peter McConnell: Writing The Music For 'Psychonauts 2' Was 'The Opportunity Of A Lifetime'

Fourteen years after Tim Shafer's Double Fine Productions released the quirky Psychonauts , composer Peter McConnell had a chance to expand on the themes and musical ideas he concieved for the orignal game. He describes the chance to work on Psychonauts 2 as "the opportunity of a lifetime!" As Psychonauts 2 begins, Razputin Aquato, a trained acrobat and psychic, has realized his dream to join the international spy organization, the Psychonauts, to discover who's really behind the kidnapping of the head of the operation. Peter says creating music for the different characters' minds that Raz can enter gave him almost unlimited scope for genres of music, because the mind is "the biggest stage there is." Volume 1 of the Psychonauts 2 soundtrack can be preordered through Skill Tree Records. Episode tracklist: all tracks composed by Peter McConnell Psychonauts 2: The Quarry; Ford's Bowling Alley; Aquato Family Caravan; Psychonauts 2 Main Theme and Prologue; The Eye Shrine; Battle for the

Episode 73: The Swingin’ Sounds of Bionic Commando

Podcast VGM Bionic Commando Capcom Harumi Fujita Junko Tamita the vgmbassy tim follin video game music

The Bionic Commando series started as a modest arcade game released by Capcom in 1987. Its unique mechanic, involving the protagonist being able to swing from an extendable arm instead of jumping, won the hearts of gamers all over the world. Thus, a long-running line of games was born!

Ed has been a longtime fan of the NES version of the game, and today he explores the music and history of the series from its arcade and microcomputer origins to the modern HD remakes and beyond. Amazing composers like Harumi Fujita, Junko Tamiya, Tim Follin, and Simon Viklund have contributed to the soundtracks, so this episode’s musical journey is nothing short of spectacular. Swing on by for this amazing solo show!


A huge thank you to Indira J (The Misadventures of Buddy and Friend, Sacrimony) for the amazing VGMbassy artwork and design, and to Trevin Hughes (aka chiptune composer Jredd) for the podcast theme song!

Well, so, here is a sound file with the track in both directions, backward first, and then forward. It is taken from an Archive SUPER BONUS four-part series called “Back to Front - the 100” featuring each track from both C1E52 “Backtracks” -AND- the supplemental Channel F “F-isode” “Backtracks - the OTHER 50”, where each track is featured in both directions (backward first). If this sounds interesting, go find them on Archive.org, along with the other six Backtracks-related SUPER BONUSES out there:

NNR Reruns:Channel F - Nerd Noise Game Club (originally released 12/19/19)

Today's rerun was a VERY special occasion that I'm very excited to get to share anew. It was a Channel F "F-isode", originally broadcast December 19th, 2019 that at the time was intended to be nothing more than just a fun "one off" between two friends and fellow podcasters. And yet, it ended up becoming something so much more than that. Though not intended to be at the time, and though it will probably never "officially" be classified as such, it has retroactively become something of a "beta", or a "pilot", or maybe an "Episode Zero" for what would go onto become "Nerd Noise Radio - Channel 2". Though this trial run is much longer than a standard Channel 2 episode - because it contains nearly twice as many tracks, and though the conversation and production are clunkier, the basic formatting is fundamentally the same, and thus, this really can be retroactively considered to "the birth of Channel 2". Enjoy!

Otherwise, it's business as usual with a little basketball, virtual novel bliss, paragliding accidents, and ANIME!

Episode 86 :: Guilty Gear Memorial Record, Tekken 3

We’re riled up for this episode of the podcast with a select screen full of fighting games! This week we’re joined by DJ Mengzy from the dance/club scene in Hong Kong to do some chip damage against Guilty Gear Memorial Record, released by Arc System Works and based on the Daisuke Ishiwatari rock-themed fighting game series. Jeremy comes clean on this serendipitous but expensive Tokyo Games Show pickup, and Caleb finally understands what is Guilty Gear. We explore the over-the-top self awareness of the game’s soundtrack and revel in the unnecessarily epic storyline. Next, Mengzy helps us unbox the Tekken 3 original soundtrack from Laced Records. We wax nostalgic over the Playstation home version and discuss the differences between the arcade and PS1 soundtracks for this seminal game. Mengzy gives us an education about tempo and genre as we explore the character roster and listen to some “phat beats.”

We get a chance to talk to Mengzy about remix, dubstep, and what it’s like to go from being a music fan to an academically-accredited and experience-rich DJ in the club scene, and she shares a few game-adjacent selections that may or may not be consider “novelty” music in the serious club scene

Finally we cover new releases and a highlight a few records you may want to add to your shelf, and, spoilers, a purchase might be confirmed from the panel before the end of the show! Who exhibited weakness in the Iron Wishlist Tournament? Tune in and find out!

Outro: “Big Blast Sonic” – Guilty Gear Memorial Record, by Daisuke Ishiwatari

Episode 4-2: The Queen of VGM, Yoko Shimomura

Greetings, gamers! Let's talk about some of the most successful, longest-running franchises in gaming. Street Fighter. Mario. Final Fantasy. Mana. Kingdom Hearts. You know what they all have in common? Very Good Music, composed by the queen of VGM herself, Yoko Shimomura!

This week, Bedroth and Shootkapow talk about another of their favorites, one of the most famous video game music makers on the planet. We trace her trajectory from her roots at Capcom all the way through her latest freelance collaboration with K-pop star Taeyeon. From chiptune jams to vocal-orchestral masterpieces, though, everything follows our number one rule: It's all Very Good Music!

So good, this intro says it twice!

John Robert Matz's 18th Century Music Masterpiece For 'Ambition: A Minuet In Power'

Paris, 1789: A young woman arrives in town at the invitation of her beloved, only to discover that he's missing and talk of revolution is swirling through the fashionable salons. In Ambition: A Minuet in Power, created by Joy Manufacturing Co., Yvette relies on her wiles to glean juicy gossip and use it to make connections to upgrade her social status. Composer John Robert Matz has created a pitch-perfect 18th Century soundtrack to accompany all the intrigue and tension of this remarkable era. John Robert approached writing this ambitious soundtrack by composing it in a traditional way, using an actual manuscript-based program so he could make sure all the parts were correct and the instrumention was period-perfect. He relied on his background as a classical musician, and all those years in the brass section of various orchestras. John Robert wrote the parts for many of his long-time friends, including the Videri String Quartet, oboist Kristin Naigus, Peter Bobinski, double bass, and

Episode 81: Consoles VS Handhelds (Same Song Different System)

Podcast VGM XVGM Radio

The difference between consoles and handhelds can be immense…..or….there’s not much of a difference (if we’re talking about redbook audio, at least.) But what happens when we DO compare these two regarding the same composition, but different arrangements? What sacrifices need to be made to make the underpowered consoles stand out? Today on XVGM Radio, Mike and Justin compare several handheld tracks with their console counterparts and determine which they like more...and the answers may shock you. Between Mike’s nerdy ramblings about lyrical differences in Luna’s Boat Song, Justin waxing nostalgic about his mind being blown regarding Lethal Weapon NES’ switching characters method, controversial anti-war songs and plenty of balls jokes to go around, it’s pretty clear these guys are Nutz for VGM!

We're leaning way into the smooth this week, setting the stage for romance with shopping mall simulation, fake adult simulation, poolhall action, soccer (of course), and street racing, not to mention some visual novel representation for all my visual novelists out there. Enjoy the jams, enjoy the last of summer (it never ends here, fortunately, and unfortunately).

Episode 4-1: The RPG Maestro, Yasunori Mitsuda

Greetings, Gamers, and welcome to Season 4! This season is all about composers! Some of the folks we'll discuss this season may be new names for you, and a few will be very well-known. Our first focus is a special one, though. Yasunori Mitsuda is possibly most well-known as the composer of the phenomenal soundtrack to the equaly phenomenal Super Nintendo RPG classic, Chrono Trigger. But that was just the beginning. 

This episode explores a lot of Very Good Music, as always, and ventures into realms of this maestro's discography that surprised even the two of us, who have long counted him among our favorite composers! We can't think of a better way to start this new phase of our VGM road trip, and we're excited to have you along for the ride!

Thanks as always to our amazing patrons and the artists who made our show art and theme song. You, too, can become a patron at patreon.com/vgmvgm, and you can reach out to us one of these ways:

Sergio Ronchetti's Epic Soundtrack For 'Eldest Souls' Epic Bosses

Eldest Souls , the first release from Fallen Flag Studio, is a brutally difficult challenge, as the last in a long line of would-be heroes tries to conquer a seemingly never-ending stream of enemies in order to restore balance to the world. Composer Sergio Ronchetti's first-ever game score is up to the challenge, with an artful blend of strings and percussion that perfectly matches each boss. Sergio says he's pretty sure he got the job because he was able to beat one of the impossible bosses at an early demo of the game. Sergio's Main Theme for Eldest Souls is unique to the soundtrack; it's contemplative and encapsulates the loneliness and faint hope that the last warrior experiences on this epic journey. Sergio says he wanted to give it more exposure than just at the beginning of the game, so he created a stunning music video: Because the game music and audio community has been so welcoming and supportive to him, Sergio is eager to do his part, and he's made himself available for one

Episode 85 :: Very OK Vinyl, Necrosphere, Actraiser

Blog link: http://videogamegrooves.com/2021/08/29/episode-85-very-ok-vinyl-necrosphere-actraiser/

Your favorite single-button adventure through the round (and flat) world of video game music on vinyl has returned! This week we speak with Scott Geoffrey from burgeoning record label Very Ok Vinyl about the particulars of curating, producing, and (mostly) shipping wax from the not-so-frozen-right-now north. Scott takes us right into our first feature this week as we discuss developer Cat Nigiri’s two-button metroidvania game Necrosphere. The game is unusual, the developer and composer are rather distinctive, and the music itself jams. We go into a bit of the special characteristics that made Necrosphere the optimal choice as VoV’s inaugural release. Anthony glides us down (Mode 7 style) to our next feature, Wayo Records’ Actraiser. The idiosyncratic SNES class-by-itself “god game plus action platformer” also enjoys a great Yuzo Koshiro score, and the vinyl release fully brings it. The Wayo release also includes a recently-reorchestrated symphonic arrangement of the game’s score, and we weigh the pros and cons of either interpretation.

We cover the recent releases and upcoming chase items (as well as breaking Anthony’s heart and wallet a few times), and call it a wrap for this episode, because we’re just that efficient and awesome.

Outro: “All Over the World” – Actraiser (unofficial release), Yuzo Koshiro

Bonus Episode 7 - Season 4 Prequel

Greeting, Gamers! Welcome to our second consecutive bonus episode, al about the number 4! In season 4, as you've heard, we're using each episode to focus on a particular composer. However, a while back, Shootkapow had the cool idea to play "VGM related to 4 of something". I always figured we'd play it to open up season four...so why not use it as a prequel? It may seem like a limiting topic, but trust us...everything you'll hear is very good music!

5 Things I Learned from Gareth Coker

podcast jason graves video game composer video game composition video game music

What the composer of Ori and the Blind Forest and Halo Infinite taught me about making music for games

gareth coker looking over a score

I recently had the pleasure of interviewing Gareth Coker on Composer Code. He’s been on my list for a really long time, and our schedules finally lined up.

It was such an insightful interview, specifically in the realms of orchestral arrangement, which continues to be a challenge for me.

I highly recommend checking out the full conversation wherever you listen to podcasts. But in this post, I want to share 5 things that jumped out at me during our interview.

1. Don’t rely on the game engine alone to create an experience

Since the advent of implementation tools, audio programmers and game developers have created some really amazing and complex dynamic music in games.

A subtle drone can seamlessly ramp up to raucous battle music and back down again all based on the player’s actions. Developers can layer tracks vertically (stacking based on game events) or horizontally (cross-fading between tracks).

These tools, when used tastefully, produce incredible results. However, Gareth cautioned against relying too heavily on the game engine to create an immersive experience.

He explained how in the Ori games, they tried using dynamic music for enemy fights, but it came off “cheesy” and “video-gamey” due to how frequently the player encounters enemies.

The result was this constant oscillation between battle music and exploration music. Gareth recommended another strategy: playing through the game and looking for “triggers.”

He defines triggers as key moments, story beats, or locations that best support a change in the music.

Every game has triggers, it just takes a bit more effort and intentionality to locate and utilize them for musical immersion. It’s a bit like combining elements of film scoring with dynamic music — taking the best of both worlds and creating the most immersive experience.

Of course, none of this can happen if the composer isn’t actually playing the game (leading nicely into my next point).

2. Play the game as early and often as possible

A lot of the time, composers can feel like “icing on the cake” rather than a chef in the kitchen. Our music is shoehorned in after the game is already done. In the worst-case scenario, we’re kind of an afterthought.

It’s not uncommon for game composers to work entirely off of a few screenshots or some gameplay footage and never actually play a game build.

Gareth stressed that sometimes, that’s all you need. But for him, nothing compares to actually getting your hands on the game as early and often as possible. He stressed this multiple times in our interview, and I’m convinced it’s a huge reason the music of the Ori games is so beloved and well-suited to the games.

Music contextualizes games, but games also contextualize how we as composers produce music.

gareth playing ori

Gareth gave several examples of how the “feel” of the game informed his music theory, arrangement, and melodic choices. It was stunning to me how it felt like he was actually on the development team (what a novel idea!).

Whether you’re writing game music for yourself or a client, insist on getting a build of the game wherever you can. Your client will not only be impressed at your commitment to the project, but you’ll likely write better music as a result.

3. Don’t be afraid to repeat, resurrect, and vary past themes

One of the biggest temptations of game composers (I think mostly due to our own pride), is that every track (or project) has to have new and fresh material.

Depending on our client’s wishes, that may be true. But there’s something to be said for resurrecting past material at key points.

Gareth talked about how in Ori 2 (Ori and the Will of the Wisps), he brought back Ori’s theme in a familiar way but in a new setting during a key gameplay moment.

The result is this nostalgic “Hey, I remember that!” feeling in the player (even if they don’t express that explicitly, they’re certainly feeling it if they played Ori 1).

After all, Gareth recalled how one of the first things you learn in Composition 101 is theme and variation. If it was good enough for all the classical composers of old (and Koji Kondo in the ‘90s Mario and Zelda games), it’s good enough for us.

4. Use an expanded pop song structure for orchestral arrangement

Okay, so this tip absolutely blew my mind and I seriously can’t wait to try it.

I expressed to Gareth how orchestral music is still the biggest challenge for me as a composer (I’ve mentioned this so many times on the podcast. Dear podcast listeners are probably so sick of hearing me air my insecurities).

I told him how whenever I write orchestral music, it feels very “gamey” and “loopy.” Meaning, it’s clear that it’s written for a video game. It doesn’t really take the listener on a journey.

Without even a pause, Gareth goes, “I’ll tell you the secret. Pop song structure.”

As that Django Unchained quote goes, “You had my curiosity. Now you have my attention.”

Chris Young (the same professor who taught Jason Graves), taught Gareth in the USC composition program. When it came to orchestral arrangement — actually telling a story with orchestral music — Chris espoused the pop song structure.

Let’s back up. For those of you who don’t know the pop song structure, it’s:

VERSE – CHORUS – VERSE – CHORUS – BRIDGE – CHORUS

Sometimes there’s a VERSE 2 snuck in there before the first chorus, but for the most part, this is the standard formula for all pop music.

Just flip on the radio or listen to the chart-toppers on Spotify if you don’t believe me.

Most pop music is under 4 or 5 minutes, so these sections have to be pretty short. Maybe an 8 bar verse, an 8 bar chorus, and an 8 bar bridge.

However, for orchestral music, Gareth recommended elongating the structure. For example, he might write a 16 bar “verse” section, a 32 bar “chorus” section, etc. The result is a long, evolving, dramatic orchestral piece that provides newness and familiarity in the repetition.

This is so genius and so practical, I cannot wait to try it out for myself.

5. Avoid the charge “by the minute” model

It’s always been challenging to monetize art. How do you ascribe value to music for clients?

We’ve tried hard to come up with models, but they all have their limitations. Charging by the hour (your time) punishes you for being efficient and rewards you for taking a long time. That’s not cool for you or the client.

Charging by the minute of produced music tends to be the most popular invoicing method, but Gareth pointed out some logical flaws with working this way.

First off, game development cycles are constantly in flux. You might charge for x amount of minutes, but a growing Kickstarter campaign might beef up the number of levels that need music, or offer a budget for a live orchestra.

Once you hit the x minute mark, are you really going to say, “Oops, too bad. You have two more levels but I already reached my minute mark, sorry guys! You can pay me again for more.”

Or if half your music gets cut from the game for some reason, are the devs going to say, “Well, we didn’t really use half your music so we’d like half our money back.”

Think of it this way: if you have a beautiful, 20-minute orchestral piece on sale for $1, and an incredible 3-minute funk tune on sale for $1, do you really care about the minute count? 

No, that’s ridiculous. You’re paying for the feeling the music gives you. In the same way, the developers are paying for the way you’re enhancing and contextualizing their game.

But, that leads us back to the “how to charge” dilemma. Gareth said that it’s better to evaluate the entire project, and simply ask yourself, “how much am I willing to take to work on this?”

“If the minute count went up by 20%, would I still be okay getting this rate? What about less, would I charge less to the client?”

Obviously, the project has to be something you’re excited about, and the more excited you are about it and the more you want it as a credit, the less you’ll be willing to take.

Sometimes, charging by the minute is inevitable, especially for games in early development or a vague scope.

In that case, it’s best to go with a hybrid approach where you charge a lump sum for the actual project as it’s currently scoped, and then if a significant amount of music needs to be written down the line, you invoice again based on the expanded musical requirements.

Listen to the full interview!

All in all, it was an incredible conversation. Gareth is a down-to-earth guy with no ego and plenty of practical wisdom.

I highly recommend listening to the entire interview, which you can find on this page or wherever you listen to podcasts.

STAGE 73: Ninja Gaiden

Created in 1988, Ninja Gaiden was originally known as Ninja Ryukenden, which would translate to originally as ”Legend of the Ninja Dragon Sword.” Developed by Tecmo (now named Koei Tecmo) The first Ninja Gaiden game was an arcade beat em up, in the vein of Double Dragon and was very well received.

Gina Zdanowicz And Spencer Bambrick Create Horror On A Budget

As part of this summer's Game Developers Conference, composers and audio designers Gina Zdanowicz and Spencer Bambrick of Serial Lab Sound presented a session on how they created a terrifying soundtrack and audio for the cult hit game Evil Nun on a microscopic budget. Because their budget was so small, Gina and Spencer whittled down their ideas to make use of a limited number of musicians, and Gina roped in her nephew to provide the sound of breathing as the player is being hunted throughout a school by the Evil Nun of the title. In our conversation, they also offer some really helpful suggestions for would-be composers and sound designers who want to move their careers further along.

KVGM "The Last Wave" (8/22/21)

bossa nova chill downtempo jazz jazz fusion KVGM lounge patreon podcast radio smooth jazz The Last Wave vgm video game music video games

Do you hear that sound? Can you feel it? The cool ocean breeze in your hair, the salt on your tongue. It's the smooth crash of the Last Wave on KVGM with your host, Hammock, bringing you thirty minutes of the best video game jams(z) from all your favorite composers and consoles, each and every week from our beachside studio in sunny Aqua City Island. Sit back, relax, and get ready to catch...the Last Wave.

It's rare that the Last Wave falls on the same day as the Last Wave After Dark but for all you Patreon supporters, you get a double dose of jams as we feature a very special guest on After Dark. But otherwise, it's business as usual on the Last Wave, as we return to the world of Yakuza, visit some clubs, go fishing, play some golf, race cars, and even answer some hard-hitting questions. Plus, digital monsters are back and better than ever, courtesy of Motoi Sakuraba.

Bonus Episode 6 - Tokyo 2020 Opening Ceremony Musical Commentary

Greetings, Gamers, and welcome to a very special bonus episode, where Bedroth flies solo to discuss the songs featured in the opening ceremony of the 2020 Tokyo Olympics!

Special thanks to Nikkei on Twitter, who appears to have been the first to publish the official list of 19 songs played in the ceremony. Thanks also to YouTubers Deh Almeida and Nicolas Monteiro, who uploaded rips of the individual themes played at the ceremony which, along with the always-wonderful VGMDB website, helped make this episode possible. Anything I get right today will be a tribute to the information I found there, as well as on various crowdsourced info-banks like Wikipedia (only approved, source-citing articles!) and the Fandom Wiki (for the more obscure stuff).

Here's a link to the MediaFiles episode mentioned in the intro. Seriously, you should totally be listening to this show! https://anchor.fm/the-mediafiles/episodes/Olympic-Games-Tokyo-2020-e15iikh/a-a69t9lj

Episode 84 :: Toy Music Dancing Super Mario Bros, Mario Syndrome

Blog link: http://videogamegrooves.com/2021/08/18/episode-84-toy-music-dancing-super-mario-bros/

We have returned once again, this time from a time warp to the mid-1980s where we have altered history by stealing away with a couple of choice records from Japan… they’ll never miss it and our resulting timeline is probably not the darkest one as a result! This week Jeremy and minty-fresh-cohost Caleb are joined by fan favorite Frederik “Blipblop” Lauridsen to show off our anachronistic booty in the form of Akihabara Electric Circus – Toy Music: Dancing Super Mario Brothers. If you think that’s a mouthful, just wait until you get an earful! “Thriller via Ray Parker Jr” vibe is something else, and we’re reminded that Nintendo franchises from the 80s were still a less defined and less homogenous phenomenon. Next, Caleb brings us our Super Mario entrée two ways with Mario Syndrome, which is not only a credible name for a congenital disease but also a pretty funky Lionel Richie style proto R&B jam, and more! We don’t want to spoil anything for you but let’s just say that you will find this record both a fun listen as well as a learning experience.

Next we catch you up on the new releases and announcements, including a little more time travel to announce something from Channel 3 Records that is both unknown but also thoroughly sold out. We discuss the continuing Great Vinyl Weirdness of ’21 with respect now to the possible ongoing fallout for labels and consumers as backups and lead times only get longer. Indie bands and small businesses are reportedly starting to turn away from the vinyl format for logistical reasons, and Caleb and Frederik give a bit of insight on whether there’s any danger for video game music on vinyl record!

STAGE 72: Mascot Games

Ever since Super Mario Bros. hit the NES in 1985, Nintendo’s red cap wearing mustachioed hero has reigned supreme as a prominent face for his company Nintendo and video games as a whole.

With the introduction of Mario and its success came a new sub-genre of video games, dubbed the “mascot platformer” in which a colorful character would hop, run and swim his way through vast and colorful worlds filled with Unique characters and challenges that await the player upon popping in a cartridge.

Although the success rate of this video game genre can be hit or miss, we can never dismiss their involvement throughout our gaming experiences growing up and more importantly the Music that these games provided us within each new world we encountered.

So this is why THIS STAGE of the Retro VGM revival Hour we are covering some of the best Music from various unknown, forgotten or in certain cases HATED mascot Video games.

David Ferguson's Authentic Music For 'Red Dead Redemption 2'

Grammy Award-winning songwriter, musician, producer and engineer David Ferguson is a Nashville Legend. When long-time friend and fellow musician Matt Sweeney asked him to collaborate to create some of the rough-hewn music that accompanies players in Rock Star Games' Red Dead Redemption 2, he didn't hesitate because he thought it would be a great new experience. David rounded up a fantastic group of Bluegrass musicians who recorded their performances mostly by improvising. Ferg says he was totally unprepared by how passionate fans of game music are, and that the simple House Building Song he wrote to cover a scene near the end of Red Dead 2 became a surprise hit. During the pandemic, Ferg used his free time to perform and produce a new album, Nashville No More, that will be released in September. The album features some big name musicians who also happen to be friends, including Bela Fleck, Dan Auberbach and Margo Price. Ferg says he loves working on projects that take him far from his

Episode 71: The Mario Golf Series with Justin from XVGM Radio

Podcast VGM akito nakatsuka koji kondo mario golf motoi sakuraba the vgmbassy video game music

Knees bent. Elbows out. Head down. Thumbs locked…. SWWIIING!

WOW, is that a birdie? Or a Birdo?

Mario and golf go hand-in-hand. The Nintendo mascot and his skittish little brother have been hitting the links since 1984! With the recent release of Mario Golf: Super Rush on the Switch and over 35 years’ worth of putts, sand traps, and water hazards behind him, Ed felt like it was time to celebrate the music of The Greatest Game. Early on, the Mario Golf series featured well-known composers like Koji Kondo and Zelda II’s Akito Nakatsuka. Later on, the reigns were handed over to maestro Motoi Sakuraba, who’s incredible versatility has culminated in wildly varied, always amazing video game scores. Ed invited his Arcane Machine cohost and XVGM Radio guy Justin to grab some balls, share some sweet tunes, and talk about the history of Mario Golf.

Episode 3-11: Superheroes with ProfJeff!

***Disclaimer for those who listen with kids - there are a few bad words and some dirty humor in this episode, especially the blooper reel. It's not a lot, but be forewarned.***

Greetings, Gamers! And welcome to the long-awaited (at least for me) Season 3 Finale: Superheroes with ProfJeff! The Professor hosted me at his apartment for the weekend and we finally recorded this episode, which we've been discussing for weeks and are really excited to finally share with you. There are a lot of great (and not so great) superhero games out there, and in this jam-packed episode, we bring you a wide variety of tunes featuring some of your favorite heroes, along with a few you've probably never heard of. Of course, everything follows our number one rule: Everything is Very Good Music.

Gareth Coker's Music Has Evolved Along With 'Ark: Genesis Part 2'

ARK: Genesis Part 2 wraps up a story that's been many years in the making by Studio Wildcard. Soundtrack composer Gareth Coker says he never imagined that the game series would not only continue for so long, but that it would also become an animated series, and spawn a sequel: ARK II. As Genesis Part 2 wraps up, the arch-nemesis Edmund Rockwell has become integrated into the ship that houses the last of humanity, and some incredible dinosaurs. Once again, Gareth was able to use a large orchestra, including 24 brass players, and record at London's famed Abbey Road Studios. He says the guidance he gave to get a huge sound from the brass section was to imagine "dinosaurs in space." Gareth says that although players might have been drawn to the ARK series initially because they can tame dinosaus, or battle them, the developers realized they have a great story to tell, and the first part of ARK is in development as an animated series featuring A-List voice actors including David Tennant and

To coincide with us doing Mega Man X on our latest Game club podcast, I decided to do something I didn’t think I would do on ROWYCO – cover Mega Man X. Sure, I did Mega Man Maverick Hunter X way back on episode 2 of this, but that’s going on three years ago now. Besides, I can’t really pass up an opportunity to talk about one of my favorite game soundtracks even more than I did on the Game Club!

Soundtrack composer Lena Raine says she was all in as soon as the devleoper, Greg Lobenov, showed her the very earliest ideas for a game which was not more than a dog who paints.

Lena says writing the music for the bosses who confront the player with these challenges was a chance to work with a different musical style than the rest of the game. Lena says she's grateful to Greg and the tiny team who made Chicory for letting her explore the kind of music she's always
