Backloggers Anonymous The Soundtrack Special

Bust out your headphones, this one’s for the music fans.

Great news! Well, for me anyway - I’m on vacation. What this means is we won’t be talking about Darksiders this week. Instead, I’ve decided to solo this podcast and talk about one of my favorite things about modern gaming: the music.

We’ll get started talking about the awesomeness that is Capcom, whose 8 bit chiptunes are in an elite class with the likes of Konami and Nintendo themselves. There’s a big reason why they were my favorite developer as a child, and a lot of that had to do with their music.

We won’t be stopping there though. What do Link and Gene Wilder have in common? What was the one redeeming quality about some of utter garbage Ocean crapped out on the SNES? It’s all here, so put on your headphones and start listening, because those lousy PC speakers aren’t gonna cut it this time!

I do have one bit of bad news. At the end of the podcast I promised a link, however, the creator's site is apparently down as none of the links to their MP3s currently work. Instead, here's a link to a YouTube video of another song from that album. From there, you can find out more about the author and listen to some more of their music, as well as see his channel and website.

Tick the "Remember Me" box at the top of the page (left) before you login, so as to not have to login everytime. Unless of course you prefer to login everytime.

I just listened to this (finally).  Why isn't this it's own show?  I'm pretty sure you were looking for more to do around here.  I think this is it.  ENTERTAIN ME!

Celebrating Five Years of PixlBit

It’s absolutely dumbfounding to think that PixlBit has existed in this world for five years now. I can’t even begin to tell you all how many times Chessa and I considered hanging it up and just moving on with life. But we never did and I’m not sure why that is. The early days were grim at times; visitation was extremely low, the hours invested were high, and my day job was absolutely soul crushing. I guess we always felt there was a light at the end of the tunnel – a point at which it would all pay off. And boy has it.
