April Patreon Live Recording – 2021

Everybody loves to talk about the Sunsoft 8-bit music era, aka DAT SUNSOFT BASS. But there’s a whole world to explore outside of the NES and Game Boy tunes, and Mike and Justin are giving you a teaser sample in this live episode where we talk about Mike’s love (and abuse) of PCM-sample heavy tracks, Justin and Mike buy Blaster Master stuff on ebay while talking about Blaster Master and…Ryu from Street Fighter?! All on this Patreon exclusive live episode for April 2021!

March Patreon Live Recording – 2021

March Patreon Live Recording – 2021

Back in September 2020, the XVGM Radio guys started putting together a licensed tracks episode and noticed that most of the tracks were Tony Hawk game related. So they decided, hey, we’ll shift gears and play all TH music and go back to licensed music at a later time. And that later time, as voted by YOU, our Patron, is now. March’s theme was our first ever (and certainly not the last) where Patrons could directly vote for the episode, and since we had a tiebreaker, we’ll be playing the other winner next month. But for now, prepare to rap, dance, groove and headbang through some truly classic licensed music for video games! Hear Mike yet again gush about how great Saints Row IV is for entirely too long, listen to Mike and Justin admit their lack of Soccer interest, and hear Justin talk about his post-college adventures with band-based rhythm games, in this balls to the wall episode full of music you’ll be bobbing your head to!

Get ready to feel the fire of Prog and hard rock, crunchy metal arrangements of classic Mario tracks, and….Pee Wee Herman music?! It’s February’s Patreon Exclusive XVGM Radio Live Show!

September Patreon Live Recording – 2020

Licensed music is…well…licensed. It’s tough to showcase it in a video game music podcast. However, we thought it would be perfect timing to cover Tony Hawk video game music! With Tony Hawk Pro Skater 1+2 Remake releasing recently, it’s not totally coincidental as to why this became the topic for this month’s episode. Bang your head and dance in your seat to the thrilling sounds of high profile artists like Goldfinger, Flogging Mollies and hear Mike’s tale on Crenshaw and Justin’s story about misheard lyrics, all on this extra special-only-possible-on-Patreon-live-episode of XVGM Radio!

It’s time to celebrate Patrons! August showcased a plethora of smashing tunes that are tracks we might not normally pick from, but they’re awesome nevertheless. We went into this one like a blind listen, and left riding Beetlejuice sandworms and playing air guitar. Lots of musical genre talks, what we were listening to in 1999, Discussion of Shepards, tower defense, Demon girl dating sims…and more! And all exclusive for Patrons! Huge thank you to those who won out during the random dice roll. And for those who didn’t get picked or some of the previous Patreon episode were left out, we’ll be sure to showcase your tunes next time around!
