Episode 58 – Chrono Trigger 25 Years Later – An Epoch Journey

It’s about time! Hailed as one of the greatest JRPG experiences of all time, and for good reason, Chrono Trigger’s the complete package for all gamers. Therefore, Justin and Mike bring in a special guest who not only is a huge fan of the game and it’s stellar soundtrack, but also named his podcast after a song title: Drew Mackie of Singing Mountain. Drew joins the XVGM Radio boys for a celebration of the ages, as they discuss the 25th anniversary of the game as of today (Yes, we’re breaking schedule to release on the official 25th birthday of Chrono Trigger!) What transpires is a nostalgic trip into the past full of name corrections, Mike sharing the track that made him cry, and of course our overlord Lavos screech discussions (Praise Lavos, of course.) Grab your Masamune, your bowls of Eyes Cream and prepare to howl with the Black Wind, as we celebrate 25 years of this milestone game!

Episode 48 – The Music of Final Fantasy VII (feat. Knight of the Round)

Hailed as one of the greatest video game experiences ever, Final Fantasy VII was a game changer. It revolutionized the Japanese Role Playing Game market and the art of storytelling in a video game at the time of its released. Now, almost 23 years later, we are about to see a remade version of the game that captured our hearts back in 1997. But on the eve of Final Fantasy VII Remake’s release date, XVGM Radio sat down with Knight of the Round band member, Justin Taylor, to chat about the significance of the original game, it’s landmark music by Nobuo Uematsu, and showcase KotR’s latest release, a Metal-infused thematic cover album aptly titled: “SEVEN.” We’ll give you one guess what the theme is. From chatting about Cid’s character growth to the importance of Tifa in Mike’s teen years and Justin’s teenage confusion over numbering the Final Fantasy games back in the day. It’s a musical celebration of a true masterpiece, both musically and gameplay wise. Also, MAD Cait Sith hate!
