Episode 77 – Only in PAL

Episode 77 – Only in PAL

Plenty of video games have only had certain releases in exclusive territories but PAL territories are home to some pretty oddball selections of games; some of which we’ve chosen here to highlight their amazing music. Who let a bunch of Yanks in to chat about PAL exclusives, anyways?! No idea, but you’ll soon forget about all that when you tune in to this episode of XVGM Radio. From chats about what Smurfing as a verb REALLY means, chats about censored European games box art and..being too cute to ball. It’ll all make sense after you give a listen to these PAL exclusives!
What was your favorite track of the episode? Have you played any of these PAL exclusives? Are you from the PAL territories? We love international listeners! Shoot us an email at XVGMRadio@gmail.com or join in on the discussion at: https://www.facebook.com/groups/XVGMradio
