Episode 7 – C64 Downports vs. Originals

by XVGM Radio 0 Comments

The late 1980s and early 1990s was an age full of change in video game music, and that shift into higher quality was arguable when it came to the Commodore 64. But do big budget titles from the silver age of gaming sound as good on The Little Computer That Could? Or were they even better than the originals? Mike and Justin take a listen to a list of tracks which may surprise listeners and will have you wondering…which one sounds better! From Double Dragon adult film discussion, to trying to name the SID chip with goofy names, plus a “brand new Tim Follin soundtrack and game?!” Sold.

Mike and Justin help you return to the mid to late 90s with 10 tracks full of well known as well as obscure PS1 video game music to help you relive the days of turning your systems upside down when the discs read error popped up.
