    For Kris’s pick, he went with the PlayStation reimagining of the arcade classic Frogger. This retro revival has it all, including an excellent “cute funk” soundtrack. Enjoy!

    Double Dragon

    Double Dragon

    Show Notes

    It’s almost amazing that after all these years, this show has never covered a Double Dragon game. It’s finally time to correct that as Matt and Kris spend some quality time with the short but spectacular soundtrack of the NES version of the original Double Dragon.

An Audiophile’s Gem

If you enjoy soundtracks from video games past (and more recent), and ever wondered how deep one could go breaking down those soundtracks, song by song, with all the care of what’s happening in the game and a professional ear for the melodies, syncopation, everything poured into the chip tunes setting the tone and feeling within these games... THIS is your podcast. This is the music appreciation class I wish were on offer, such a quick an enjoyable hour.

The Most Fun You Can Have With VGM

What really sets this show apart from the other great VGM casts out there is Kris's pure, unadulturated love for these games and tunes, which just bubbles out of him in every episode. The interplay between the hosts is great, but Kris is one of the few people out there who I think could carry a show purely on his own enthusiasm. Great taste in VGM, as well. You're sure to hear some old favorites and make some new ones.
