Episode 56 -VGM Homework

School’s out and summer is all the rage…but that doesn’t stop Mike and Justin from challenging their minds when it comes to video game music! Back on Episode 54, Mike and Justin did an episode entirely on Continue themes in games, which was challenging to say the least. But now, they’re headed on a different part of their VGM studies by assigning each other some homework! Mike picks a game and Justin picks a track from that game, and vice versa. Each person also gives a brief explanation on why they picked the game they picked! The results are some engaging and exciting songs from games that the XVGM Radio guys would never typically pick for each other! Listen in as Mike shares his hatred of Axl from the Mega Man X series, Justin shares his love for Westerns, and Janine eats Triscuits from home since she has the night off! All on this educational yet entertaining episode of XVGM Radio!

Episode 55 – Mega Man Fan Game Music w/ MegaPhilX

Episode 55 – Mega Man Fan Game Music w/ MegaPhilX

Since the dawn of the internet, video game fans have gathered to celebrate their favorite franchises. One of the most dedicated fanbases is for Mega Man, specifically the classic series that started on the NES, and saw a resurgence on later generations like Mega Man 9 and 10 on the Wii, and more recently, Mega Man 11 on the Switch. But those classic 8-bit style games feature some of the best video game music ever; songs that we’ve all heard over and over again. So today, we wanted to spotlight some fan efforts, and boy did we find some fantastic tunes! We’re joined by Mega Man fan community member, co-composer, artist and creator of the Mega Man fan game juggernaut, Mega Man Unlimited, to showcase his game, and several others. Learn about his relationship with fellow composer and all star of the MM fan game universe, Kevin Phetsomphou and listen to Justin, Mike and Phil list their order of favorite classic MM games. Also hear some fascinating stories from Phil getting a paid trip to Hawaii on Capcom’s dime! All on this MEGA-powered up episode of XVGM Radio!
