When you think about vikings, you don’t usually picture early 90s dance music. But composer Charles Deenan sure did, and used a mix of keyboards, guitars and beats to craft one of my favorite SNES soundtracks.
One of 2015’s best soundtracks gets its own episode! We discuss not only the game’s relentlessly upbeat tunes, but also its unique Nickelodeon meets Jet Grind Radio universe.
An all new assortment of upbeat, life-affirming tracks from Dream Team and Paper Jam, plus we return to the SNES original for a pair of 1996 gems. Infectious positivity you can’t resist!
David Bowie’s reach extended even to video games, perhaps most so in this 1999 sci-fi adventure. We look at some of his tracks that debuted here, plus the BGM from composer Xavier Despas.
Who coulda guessed an obscure shooter series would have incredible, blood pumping music? Oh, actually, guest Patrick Kulikowski knew, and brought tunes from all three Mahou Daisakusen games.
Our second Album of the Year award goes to Undertale, which lovingly combines the sounds of the NES and SNES with modern chiptunery. The result is a 100-track OST that can’t be missed – but be prepared for some light spoilers!
We’re just about ready to reveal our 2015 Album of the Year (those who listened to the Year in Review probably have a good idea what it’ll be) but before we do, we have a brief Q&A with the composer of last year’s AOTY winner!
A 90 minute look back at some of 2015’s best tracks, including songs from Ori and the Blind Forest, Bloodborne and Codename STEAM.
After years of empty threats, Chris finally lands his Kickle Cubicle episode. And it just so happens to be our very first VGMini, a new sub-series that looks at games that might otherwise never get their own show.
We chat with the world-famous composer about Earthworm Jim, the early days of game music and how Video Games Live came to be, all while listening to choice tunes from his second Greatest Hits album.
