Episode 4-10: From Minnesota to Melee to Mother: Shogo Sakai with RJ

Greetings, Gamers! This time, we are joined by Shootkapow's good friend (and game developing partner) RJ! RJ's been recommending songs for the show for over a year, and we're really excited to have him on to talk about one of his favorite composers, Shogo Sakai!

Sakai isn't quite as well-known as some of the others we've discussed this season, nor is he as prolific as far as the number of games he's composed. However, he's been involved in the VGM scene for over 30 years, and his work on the massive (and beloved) soundtrack to Mother 3 has made him famous in at least the VGM fandom. And as always, everything we're bringing from his discography is Very Good Music!

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:

Rock Out With Your Cart Out 83 – The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past (Remixes)

Podcasts Rock Out With Your Cart Out

Following up on episode 82, here are some of my favorite remixes from A Link to the Past. Some of these, much like the remixes on the ROWYCO on The Legend of Zelda, I’ve had kicking around on various hard drives and devices over the last 20 years. Others are more recent remixes, or, at least recent to me as I’d only found them recently. Enjoy!

Support me on Patreon!

The ROWYCO theme song is “Kaze Fuma” and was created by chibi-tech for the podcast.

The ROWYCO logo was designed by Melissa Diaz.

Rock Out With Your Cart Out Dream Event 25

Podcasts Rock Out With Your Cart Out

The Rock Out With Your Cart Out Dream Events are normally reserved for our Patreon backers at the $3 a month and up tier. But in the spirit of giving thanks and all that, I thought I’d throw this one out there for you. Hopefully hearing this and knowing what you’ll get twice a month will entice to kick in a few bucks so you get all these episodes and also get them in a higher quality audio rate than you’ll get here on the free feed!

So what I do on these bonus episodes? Twice a month, I go through the games that came out that half of the month in five year increments, pick out some games, and then pick out some music from those games. For this epsiode, we’ve got games that came out in the last half of November in 1986, 1991, 1996, 2001, 2006, 2011, and 2016. There’s a ton of biggies for this one!

It was a busy week for Hammock this week. Not only was he in the studio, bringing you more smooth VGM music, but he also took a trip to the esteemed VGMbassy to hang out with Ed Wilson and listen to great music from an obscure Korean DOS platformer called Eol’s Adventure. Go check that out! But also check this out because this week's show is no joke. Lots of Nintendo love, a love escalator(?!), love therapy, and even a special request from Arc the Lad II.

Sit back, relax, and get ready to catch...the Last Wave.

This week on the show, we return to the mahjong parlor but add a sexy spin to it, we interrogate some cuties, we shoot some pool, manager an idol, play baseball, race Toyota Celicas...and we even have enough time to squeeze in a JRPG. Not to mention, a new Last Wave After Dark came out with a super smooth soundtrack - you can listen to it right here

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.

Plus, digital monsters are back and better than ever, courtesy of Motoi Sakuraba.

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.

They might not be the most naturally romantic crew at heart, but the Battle Bards have been known to get, er, swoony when love is professed and crushes confessed.

Rock Out With Your Cart Out 82 – The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past (SNES)

Podcasts Rock Out With Your Cart Out

We go from one important game celebrating a big anniversary to another. This time, it’s The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past turning 30 years old. We’ll be listening to the soundtrack for the game by itself since there’s a lot more to it than there was for the original The Legend of Zelda. Instead of putting my favorite remixes into this episode, there’ll be another episode later this week where I’ve compiled a bunch of my favorite remixes for it.

Most video games are just more fun when shared with someone you care about. Memorable gaming moments are even more special when you can recount them with a loved one years later.

Prepare to be entertained with tales of playing 1080 Snowboarding in full snowboarding garb, weird haunted RC Pro Am cars, and waiting for the Mortal Kombat bus at 2:30 in the morning. Why are kids so crazy?

Episode 84: Yakuza Games w/ Alex From A VGM Journey

Guest Podcast Podcaster VGM A VGM Journey XVGM Radio

On XVGM Radio, we generally are pretty knowledgable about the subject matter of both game music and the game series we discuss. But what about when we’re not familiar with a franchise or its tunes? We bring in someone who’s played them all and in this circumstance that would be patron saint of video game music podcasts and leader of his own show, Alex Messenger of A VGM Journey. Together, we discuss Alex’s history with the Yakuza series as Justin and Mike experience the franchise through Alex. From misheard vocal lyrics “Can You Hungry - Just Brillo!” to Mike’s experience growing up listening to whatever his parents played in the car and of course Justin had to jokingly give Mike a hard time about a track! Come along for the trip to Japan as we chat about one of Sega’s newer yet most prominent IPs of the PS2 era and beyond! This...is a journey through the Yakuza franchise’s video game music!

Channel F - BONUS: NNR Channel 2: Season 1 & 2019 Beta - ALL MUSIC - COMPLETE (Music-Only)

Today’s “F-isode” is the complete collection of all music from season 1 of Nerd Noise Radio - Channel 2 (Sept 2020 - Sept 2021) ***PLUS***, the music from Hugues and I’s December 2019 Channel F “one-off” that would go on to retroactively become the template, and “unofficial ‘beta’” for Channel 2. Though much longer, and a bit more clunky and unpolished, it is otherwise identical in format and fundamentally similar in delivery to what would go on to become the later Channel 2 “official episodes”.

Now, this collection is JUST the music from these episodes, with all the conversation between Hugues and I scrubbed. However, I will provide iTunes links to each of the full episodes (plus the full beta) so that you can listen to these tracks IN CONTEXT if you wish, and can hear everything we had to say about them.

Part of the reason I had included the tracks from the 2019 beta is to show where we’ve come from. Part of it is to show where we’re going. Part of it is simply because it’s full of really, really great music that you may have otherwise missed. And lastly, since starting with the “Best of 2020 / 2021” episodes in 2022, music from Channel F “F-isodes” will be eligible, unlike they were in 2020 for “Best of 2019”, I wanted to include them here now so that they’d finally be available to you or I for inclusion in our respective “best ofs”.

But the single biggest reason for my sharing these with you now, in November of 2021 is simply to hopefully build some excitement for and engagement with December’s “Best of Channel 2 - Season 1” episode, which Hugues and I will meet to produce, and will feature a grand total of 26 tracks, ***ALL OF WHICH*** pulled from today’s collection of 92 - two tracks per host per episode, plus one “wild card” track pick per host. So, which 26 will we pull, and which 66 will we leave behind? And how well or poorly will our 26 align with the 26 that you, the listener, may have theoretically picked for yourself and/or predicted that we might pull?

In December, we’ll all find out together. And afterwards, you’ll have to be sure to reach out to us to let us know! In the meanwhile, here’s the source material we’ll be pulling from: first, the 70 tracks from “Season 1 proper”, plus the 22 from 2019 in our beta afterwards. I hope you’ll enjoy! Please get a hold of us on FB, or Twitter, or through e-mail at nerdnoiseradio@gmail.com with what your picks, and/or your guess of what our picks will be, and if we get them in time, we may even mention them, and engage with them during the episode! If you DO decide to play along, pick one “Hugues track”, one “St. John track”, and one wildcard, so we’re dealing with the same number of tracks (as well as what your guesses are for our picks).

Cheers!

It’s a little surreal to say this, but Halo: Combat Evolved turns 20 years old today. Not only is the original Halo one of the most important releases to ever come out, but, on a more personal note, it’s really the only first-person shooter with a soundtrack that’s ever stuck with me. So, to celebrate this momentous release, we’re going to listen to my favorite music from Halo: Combat Evolved!

Episode 4-8: Final Fantasy Character Themes by Nobuo Uematsu

Greetings, Gamers! This time around, all of our Very Good Music will follow a very specific theme. Nobuo Uematsu is probably the most famous video game music composer in the world. As such, we're going to hone in on a very small but significant corner of his library: Final Fantasy Character Themes!

Our songs today come from Final Fantasies IV, VI, VII, VIII, IX, and X and run the gamut from slow and somber to soaring and heroic. We hope you enjoy this unique take on a composer focus as we look at the work of one of game music's greatest of all time.

Greetings, Gamers, and welcome to another bonus episode! Dusklight joines us once again as we take a week off of the regular full-length episodes we've been droping during our composer-focused season to bring you a special holiday-themed spooky show!

Although they are among the most beneficial creatures on the planet, spiders have always had a creepy reputation. Maybe it's the silken death-traps they make with their butts. Maybe it's their fun way of liquefying their prey from the inside so they can drink them for dinner. Maybe it's just all those eyes and legs! Regrdless, there's some Very Good Music associated withour arachnid acquantances in the wide world of VGM, and we hope you enjoy the songs we've chosen for you.

Episode 88 :: RE:Mixed [The Save Rooms], Kowloon’s Gate, Night Trap

It’s Halloween, and like the man said: “Ve vant to spin your winyl!” Well, we’re spinning our winyl anyway, and they’re all rather spookity in honor of the season. First, Jeremy brings new meaning to the season of chilling with a rather cool rendition of Resident Evil with RE:Mixed [The Save Rooms], which is the kind of compilation we always wanted but then didn’t want but then secretly totally really wanted. We suppose synthwave might have limited breadth but it’s always fun and we pick some fan favorites to show off. Next, Anthony takes us to the weird intersection of horror and feng shui with Kowloon’s Gate, a 1997 horror game that defies classification. The game’s soundtrack by Kuniaki Haishima is similarly tough to comprehend but we stare into the mouth of its madness with our ears, and marvel at Haishima’s liner notes, an absolutely epic manifesto of existence. Finally we shift into horror of another kind: moral panic, with our long-overdue coverage of Night Trap from Ship to Shore Records. We compare and contrast the music of Sunny Blueskyes and Martin Lund with the gameplay, and place it all in the context of the US congressional hearings of the 1990s. No, it doesn’t make any more sense now than then.

Finally, we fill your trick-or-treat bag with all the new releases in the world of game music on vinyl, but we’re going to take our dad tax because it’s just how this holiday works.

Outro: “RE0” – RE:Mixed [The Save Rooms] by Mono Memory

Episode 175: Talking Points

The Talk Nintendo Podcast crew and TYP team up once again for our annual crossover episode!

*BONUS* Embassy Exclusive 28: Thrills and Kills

Podcast VGM Halloween the vgmbassy video game music

This month’s Patreon-only podcast is special in more ways than one: It’s a Halloween companion piece to the awesome Patron-submission show that the community helped create, but it’s also the first “traditional” episode to be uploaded publicly! Embassy Exclusive is a bonus podcast that’s normally only offered to our VGMissary-tier ($3/mo) patrons and above, but as a special trick-and-treat, everyone gets to listen in on this one!

Our topics this month all revolve around the spirit of the season. Todd asks if we’ve ever been legitimately scared playing a video game. Joe leads a lengthy and patron-fueled discussion on violence and gore in games. Lastly, Ed shares a *very* creepy story about an experience playing Silent Hill and wonders if similar things have happened to anyone else. As usual, the topics are accompanied by a healthy dose of humor, fun, and some great music!


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!

Check out the VGMbassy Patreon for some fantastic bonuses, including exclusive podcast content!

Greetings, Gamers! For this episode we're joined once again by Skeletroy as we go through the NES library (plus a couple of bonus Bat-tracks) of renowned Sunsoft composer Naoki Kodaka.

Rock Out With Your Cart Out 78 – Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake – Disc 2 (MSX)

Podcasts Rock Out With Your Cart Out

Rather than be bummed out about not getting the Metal Gear: Snake’s Revenge soundtrack on vinyl, I thought it would be nice to appreciate that I got Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake on vinyl. Since it’s a pretty substantial soundtrack (you might say it’s one of “substance”), we’re going to split it up over two episodes.

On this second part, we’ll be listening to all of the music on the second disc of the soundtrack, as well as some stuff that didn’t make the cut, namely, some alternate versions of tracks and some rather short stuff that are more quick stingers than full-fledged tracks.

The ROWYCO theme song is “Kaze Fuma” and was created by chibi-tech for the podcast.

The ROWYCO logo was designed by Melissa Diaz.
