    Episode 018 - Final Fantasy XIII

    Episode 018 - Final Fantasy XIII

    Being branded a l'Cie means being purged from your friends, families, and loved ones. But what happens when six adventurers band together, all branded as well, to try and put a stop to the purges and rescue those they have lost? Final Fantasy XIII is born! Composed by Masashi Hamauzu, FFXIII marks the first mainline Final Fantasy game to not feature the work and oversight of Nobuo Uematsu. But does Hamauzu have what it takes to fill the massive shoes that Uematsu has left? Join Peter and Cody as they welcome Corbin Rogers, a long time fan of the Final Fantasy franchise and superfan of the XIII trilogy, discussing the history of Final Fantasy XIII, their memories and first exposure with the game, and of course, the music that comes with it! You may have heard mixed feelings about Final Fantasy XIII across the web, but this episode is sure to confirm that this game stands tall among the rest.

    Episode 017 - Undertale

    Episode 017 - Undertale

    Nyeh heh heh! An indie sensation among gamers everywhere, Peter and Cody decide that their podcast wouldn't be the same without covering the wonderful Undertale... except there's one problem: Cody has never actually played Undertale! For that, we knew we needed some help with this one, so we were happy when we were able to bring Bridgette a.k.a Brooklyn from the Block on this episode with us to try and convince Cody that he needs to play this game? Were we successful? You'll just have to listen to the episode to find out!

    Undertale was developed almost solely by one person, Toby Fox, and what he was able to accomplish in this game musically is mind-blowing. Travel with us to the Underground as we explore our introduction to the game, talk about what makes this game so special, and dive into our top five songs from the official soundtrack! Warning: listening to this episode will fill you with determination!

    Question of the Episode: Who was your favorite character from Undertale? Answer this and chat more about this game over on Twitter @DeepBassPodcast, or drop by our Discord server: https://discord.deepbasspodcast.com/

    If you'd like to chat with Brooklyn more, you can find her over on Twitter: https://twitter.com/bklynxbridge

    Last but not least, to purchase a copy of this fantastic soundtrack for yourself, you can find it on Bandcamp: https://tobyfox.bandcamp.com/album/undertale-soundtrack

    From insane, spider legged bosses, to the Super FX chip,  to... tiddlywinks...? What? This episode covers the gamut, and then some! Enjoy our flight through deep space as we discuss our adventures through Star Fox!

    Episode 015 - Celeste

    Episode 015 - Celeste

    What is more therapeutic than conquering inner demons like depression and anxiety? Doing so while climbing a massive mountain! In this episode, Peter and Cody share their thoughts about the beautifully composed Celeste, some of their personal experiences both with the game and their own battles with depression and anxiety, and what this game meant to them. After a tumultuous 2020, this was just the escape they both needed to ground themselves again. Lena Raine, the composer of Celeste, has crafted a masterpiece, and that is exemplified by the fact that we couldn't even trim these songs down without losing too much detail, so we left them mostly intact! Join us on our journey through Celeste as the first episode to ever reach two hours of listening time. Trust us, we are not kidding when we say that every second is worth it.



    No question of the episode this time around, but we now are on Discord! Come join the community and talk about Deep Bass Podcast episodes, or just shoot the breeze with us about games and game music in general. https://discord.deepbasspodcast.com/



    As always you can reach us over on twitter @DeepBassPodcast to discuss as well. Please don't forget to like and subscribe wherever you are listening, and if you feel ever so generous, please drop us a review!

    Episode 014 - Animal Crossing: New Horizons

    Episode 014 - Animal Crossing: New Horizons

    Welcome to Animal Crossing! Population: Growing! Peter and Cody sit down with special guest Carly Ritchie as they discuss their island life... both in real life and in Animal Crossing: New Horizons! Debuting in March at the start of the quarantine due to COVID-19, the three have found various ways to enjoy their time on their new islands, discovering ways to share moments with their friends despite practicing social distancing. With that, came a love for the soundtrack that featured a host of new hourly jams that they enjoyed while picking fruit, digging up fossils, and developing their island. Take a listen as they share memories of past games, as well as discussing their top songs from ACNH. With over 200 tracks composed by Yasuaki Iwata, Yumi Takahashi, Shinobu Nagata, Sayako Doi, and Masato Ohashi, they found it quite the challenge to narrow it down to just five songs each. We hope you enjoy the music and memories relived from Animal Crossing: New Horizons!



    Question of the Week: Who is your favorite villager of all time? Tweet us @DeepBassPodcast, and don't forget to subscribe to us wherever you listen to your podcasts!



    Our guest, Carly, can be found on Twitter, Instagram, and really anything with a handle by searching for @coyo_kaleido.



    Thanks for listening, and from Peter and Cody at the Deep Bass Podcast, we hope you have a wonderful and safe holiday season!

Video Game Tunes, Fun Facts, & Nostalgia

Deep Bass has a bit of everything. Discussing a game every ep, they talk about its history, their experiences with it, and then discuss their ranked favorites of that game's soundtrack. It'll take you down memory lane with games you are familiar with, and show you a new perspective on the ones you haven't played yet. Peter and Cody host in a way that makes you feel like you're in a room just chatting about video games with some old buds. It's a great listen that I always look forward to!
