Episode 52 – Run ‘N Guns

Episode 52 – Run ‘N Guns

Get ready for some spreadshot, some rocket lawnchairs and discussions about Kevin Bacon-lookalikes dealing drugs, because XVGM Radio is blasting their way onto the scene with an episode focused on the Run ‘n Gun genre and it’s music! Often looped in with shoot ‘em ups and First Person Shooters (FPS,) Run ‘n Guns are more like action platformers that focus on blowing away everything in sight; and the good news is, they typically have amazing soundtracks! Mike and Justin grab their most tattered bandanas as they wax nostalgia for wreckless convertible driving, western motifs in games, Mr. BIG singalongs and of course: cheat codes! Get your thumbs ready to hit A-B-B-A, and Up-Up-Down-Down-Left-Right-Left-Right-A-B on this cyberpunk lovin’, laser-shootin’ episode of XVGM Radio!
