    Episode 026 - Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

    Episode 026 - Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

    Peter and Cody really cannot wrap their heads around it, but it has been one whole year since the Deep Bass Podcast recorded it's first episode, and what a journey it has been. What better way to celebrate than to cover a game with the largest soundtrack they could find? At over 1,000 songs, this was the biggest soundtrack they've listened to, and at over two hours and 15 minutes, the longest podcast they've ever recorded. Not too bad to cap off the first season!

    In this episode, Peter and Cody talk about the last year, including some of the best and worst moments of the podcast. Then they dive into SSBU, talking about their history and (reluctantly) picking their five favorite songs. This was incredibly challenging, given that every track on the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate soundtrack is legitimately a gem! There are a few other hidden gems that make this their most content filled episode to date. You won't want to miss it!

    Question of the Episode: If you had to pick five tracks from the SSBU soundtrack, what would they be? Tell us over on Twitter @DeepBassPodcast, or stop by the Discord and hang out: https://discord.deepbasspodcast.com/

    Also, to celebrate this milestone, we've released shirts and hoodies! You can pick one up right here: https://merch.deepbasspodcast.com/

    And as always, thanks for listening, and we'll see you next season!

    Episode 025 - Hades

    Episode 025 - Hades

    Escaping the underworld can be hard. But at least if you're going to do it, you should have the composure and good looks of best boi Zagreus! In this week's episode, we talk about the music from yet another beloved title from the minds at Supergiant Games: Hades! Composed entirely by Darren Korb, we are presented with a soundtrack unlike any other in games that we've covered, and it does Hades much justice. Roguelikes are certainly not Cody's forte, but Peter tries his best to convince him that if he plays only one roguelike ever in his life, Hades should be that game. Does he succeed? Take a listen and find out!

    Question of the Episode: Which Olympian gives you your favorite ability to use in Hades? Tweet us @DeepBassPodcast, or join the conversation over on Discord: https://discord.deepbasspodcast.com/

    Buy the soundtrack on Bandcamp: https://supergiantgames.bandcamp.com/album/hades-original-soundtrack

    Episode 024 - Pokémon Black and White Version 2

    Episode 024 - Pokémon Black and White Version 2

    Unova is in danger again and instead of Team Plasma it's... Neo Team Plasma? Ooookay then. Peter and Cody sit down to talk about Pokémon Black and White Version 2 which neither have played, and both are highly confused about it's existence. Their personal opinions aside, they dig into over 120 tracks to find their top five and talk about their history and experience with Pokémon, as well as Peter's completely healthy and normal obsession over Pokémon Go. Composed by Go Ichinose, Hitomi Sato, and Teruo Taniguchi, does the Pokémon Black and White Version 2 OST hold a candle to the flame of the past four generations? Take a listen and find out!

    Question of the Episode: If you were introducing someone brand new to the franchise of Pokémon, which game would you start them off with? Answer this and previous episode questions on Twitter @DeepBassPodcast, or stop by the Discord and let's break that 240 character limit: https://discord.deepbasspodcast.com/

    Episode 023 - The Last of Us

    Episode 023 - The Last of Us

    If your country was ravaged by an infection that destroyed most of the nation, turning major cities into barely livable encampments, and where the militia will kill you for stepping foot into areas without proper certification, how would you survive? In The Last of Us, Joel and Ellie survive on hope, their growing friendship, and really, really bad jokes. But they're totally worth listening to! The Last of Us was a major hit on the PS3, and saw a remaster on the PS4, but while you'll hear a lot about the story, gameplay, and graphics, one thing we don't hear much about is the music. Composed almost entirely by Gustavo Santaolalla, we are presented with an outstanding score that would knock most cinematic full length films out of the park. Outstanding from beginning to end, this is one episode you are not going to want to pass up on.

    Question of the Episode: If you could take one video game or video game series and turn it into a movie/TV series, what would it be? Answer this by tweeting @DeepBassPodcast, or stop by our Discord and hang out: https://discord.deepbasspodcast.com/

    Episode 022 - Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble

    Episode 022 - Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble

    Rounding out the beloved Donkey Kong Country trilogy, Peter and Cody sit down and talk about Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble, which brings with it a very new sound that compliments this game. This is to be expected though, when David Wise took a back seat to allow Eveline Fischer a chance to compose most of the tracks herself. But does this late SNES era game hold a candle to the monumental titles that were DKC and DKC2? You'll have to listen to find out what we thought!

    Question of the Episode: In DKC3 (or any game, really) what were your favorite and worst stages you have ever played? Answer this and talk about the episode over on Twitter @DeepBassPodcast, or come hang out with us on Discord: https://discord.deepbasspodcast.com/

    As always, thank you so much for listening!

    Episode 021 - Luigi's Mansion

    Episode 021 - Luigi's Mansion

    Okay so it may not be spooky season, but after our discussions about Luigi's Mansion, do you really need an excuse to play such a charming game? We think not! In this episode, we bring on James Fluker, a fellow streamer and co-host of the Elbow Rocket podcast as we talk about a game that Peter hasn't played before. After listening to the soundtrack, he regrets that decision immensely! Composed by Kazumi Totaka and Shinobu Tanaka, we are pleasantly surprised that this game doesn't take the typical approach to a "horror" game and finds a way to bring us funky, fresh, and all together fun tracks to listen to. Take a listen as we talk about our experiences (or lack thereof) of this game, and share with you our top five favorite tracks from the OST.

    Question of the Episode: What game OST has caught you by surprise after you listened to it for the first time? Answer this and chat with us on Twitter @DeepBassPodcast, or join us on the Discord: https://discord.deepbasspodcast.com/

    You can find more of James over on Twitter as well: https://twitter.com/Elb0wR0cket

    As always, thank you for listening!

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!
