Episode 17 – GameBoy w/ Niko (WiiGuy309!)
Arguably the most popular handheld gaming system in history, the Game Boy was a smorgasbord of great games, all on the go. Thankfully, portability didn’t rule out having a stellar sound chip and this episode is just the tip of the iceberg. We enlist the help of Niko, better known as WiiGuy309 or simply Wii Guy, to help us sort through the entire Game Boy library to bring you some memorable tracks! Between Mike getting the details on the Jungle Book movie completely wrong, to an unofficial sponsorship from Taco Bell, this episode will have you reaching for your monochromatic Game Boys and a pair of headphones!
