Episode 38 – Shakedown Hawaii w/ Norrin Radd/Matt Creamer

Grit your teeth as you plow through innocent bystanders, hold up stores for insurance protection, and burn forests down with your flamethrower...it’s your world in Shakedown Hawaii. The successor to Retro City Rampage had a lot to live up to, and thankfully it doesn’t suffer from sequelitis, as it’s one of the best indie games this year. Take on the role of an aging 1980’s CEO, or his spoiled rotten to the core son, and even a hired mercenary to do the dirty work. All three are at your disposal here as you steal cars, burn down parking lots, and crush anything in your way: including pesky consumer rights! Take on the role of CEO as you figure out the best way to ruin customer’s lives and make cash doing it. Despite the slimy premise, the game is tons of fun and backed by an incredible 80s synthwave soundtrack by Norrin Radd aka Matt Creamer. Matt takes us through the ups and downs he faced getting the official soundtrack released, and answers all the hard-hitting questions all while providing fantastic insight into his compositions.

Episode 37 – SPOOKYFEST 2019!

It’s that time once again for...SPOOKYFEST….2019! Yes, Spookyfest has returned to a backyard near us.

Hear the crowds roar in between songs as Mike and Justin dig up 10 ghoulish tracks, a ghastly outro...and even a Patreon request! Listen to the guys discuss Knuckles’ mode of transportation,debate about Phantom of the Opera’s melodies, and try to figure out if a track is Cukey or Spute. All this, and more on XVGM Radio’s SPOOKYFEST 2019!

October Patreon Live Recording – 2019

It’s that Spooky time of year again! Mike and Justin gather at the Halloween church of VGM to showcase some somber, creepy, and downright eerie tunes while talking about things that are special to them about this time of year. From chatting about Halloween non-VGM traditions to talk of Halloween treats, what a “hot dog storm” would actually look like, and all things SpoOoOoOoOoOoky, it’s a pre-game for SpookyFest 2019 like you’ll NEVER forget! The guys also mention a VERY special contest exclusive to Patreon members that YOU can win in a future main episode! All Treat, No Tricks! 

Episode 36 – Castlevania Oddities

Castlevania music has a special place in our hearts. But what about the wacky, wild world of Castlevania cameos, bizarre ports and side story games and other ‘Vania obscurities? Mike and Justin take the listener on a bumpy hayride past Dracula’s castle, and into his backyard to listen to some of the stranger versions of mainline games in the Castlevania franchise. From mobile to only in the arcade and even multiplayer preferred, the series has certainly had its ups and downs but the tunes have mostly always been the best kind of wall meat: tough to find, yet fully satisfying! So, grab your garlic water and rave sticks and join XVGM Radio as they explore these weird and wacky Castlevania remixes...with a few originals to boot!
