Episode 27 – Water Themes

Water themes in video games: You either hate them or love them. We’ve been getting a ton of rain lately, so what better way to forge through the storm then to talk about water themes in video games?! Justin and Mike put away their umbrellas and chat about an eclectic mix of tunes based on either bosses, levels song names or entire games that focus on water! Listen closely as the XVGM Radio boys slosh around in their iced-tea-filled-adult-diapers, get threatened by Kevin Costner, debate about the superior Earthworm Jim soundtracks, and more on this wet and wild episode of XVGM Radio!

Episode 26 – Mike’s Picks!

It’s co-host spotlight time...AGAIN! This time around, Mike picks the tracks for the episode. Hear tracks ranging from the NES to the Playstation 4 as Mike and Justin take you on a audio journey through Mike’s wacky mind. From conversations about Simon Belmont telemundo style, to handling calls from anyone from “Mike’s mom” to an angry planet devourer, and even a little jokey ribbing of Mike’s youtube game review show, this episode is a nostalgic trip full of mega hits and obscure picks from popular games.

Episode 25 – Freedom Planet with Composer Leila “Woofle” Wilson

Freedom Planet, the 2014 indie darling developed by Stephen Diduro (aka Strife) set the bar for games influenced by Sonic the Hedgehog and Rocket Knight Adventures. But a Sonic style game needed a Sonic styled composer...or did it? Enter Leila "Woofle" Wilson, who brought her love of JRPGs, Funk and New Jack Swing to compliment Strife's more Mega Man focus, along with Shane Ellis aka Blue Warrior's composition assistance, the three created the exciting soundtrack of Freedom Planet! Today, we're honored to have Leila Wilson join us for a special interview where we find out the origin story of the game, hear Leila gush about her VGM influences, and learn all about Lilac, Carol and Milla's fun and frantic journey!

Episode 24 – Puzzle Games

Jump that block, switch that dial and twist that piece! Puzzles make you think, wonder and learn and today on XVGM Radio, we aim to do the same. We’ll be playing video game music from all sorts of musical genres, all with the puzzle game commonality in mind. Join Justin and Mike as they try to speak to Q-Bert, talk about Jeddy and Fraison, and...boner jamz. Also, ZOOP! All on this super chill episode of XVGM Radio!

April Patreon Live Recording – 2019

It's Springtime! You know what that means: April showers bring May flowers, so we're sharing some songs that remind us of Spring. We had a blast talking about terrible people who unveil Avengers Endgame spoilers, how Mike totally relates to Yoshi now that he has his own daughter, and reminiscing about tracks old and new that inspired quite a bit of nostalgia talk!
