Great podcast

Music is a big part of RPGs, especially JRPGs. The panel select a great mixture of soundtrack to create an enthralling experience along with an explanation of the setting and background of the selected music. Sometimes the melody even helps me to sleep!(but I always end up listening to the missed part :) ) Great work and keep it up!

RPGFan Brought Color to the Dull Parts of My Life

i don't usually listen to podcasts, but RPGFan's podcasts are fantastic. Rhythm Encounter and Retro Encounter have made my trips to and from work something to look forward to. Rhythm/Retro Encounter have even pulled me out of my room on my days off to walk over to the neighborhood coffee shop, just so that i can listen to the podcasts on my walks there and back!

RPGFan staff really know what they're talking about-- whether it's stories of artists who worked on Chrono Trigger or it's musical techniques and styles. I'm more a fan of Rhythm and Retro rather than Random because i like structure and themes, and Random seems sort of ... well, random! But Random is fun to listen to as well, because everyone sounds like they're having so much fun.

Please check out RPGFan's podcasts, even if you're not really a podcast person! And thank you, RPGFan, for making me fall in love with video games all over again!

A Passion for RPG Music!

If you’re a fan of video game music, particularly RPGs, then this is a podcast for you. I’ve picked up several RPGs based on their music alone. The hosts pick a new topic each week, play tracks from a variety of RPGs and then have short discussions based on the material. Although they hosts are not trained in music theory, they are passionate about what music can bring to a game and focus on how music enhances gameplay. Many of those who dwell outside the realm of geek culture often look down on video game music as an inferior art form. This show aims to combat that stigma via exposure. The show pulls music from RPGs both past and present making each episode fresh and engaging. After each episode I find myself with a large list of both games and artists to Google. Whether you’re looking for a new RPGs series to check out or just some great music, this podcast has something for everyone.
