LMH Mixtape #57: TurboGrafx-16

The Legacy Music Hour's first console focus was on the deliciously crunchy TurboGrafx-16.  Although the system did very well in Japan as the PC Engine, its limited popularity in North America and Europe may have left you relatively underexposed to its fantastic sound.  Starting to feel the TurboGrafx deficiency in your blood?  Hook this mixtape directly into your veins and watch your vitals soar along with these fantastic jams.

Episode 188: Nexting Etiquette

In Episode 188, Brent and Rob talk about nexting etiquette, the do’s and don’ts of putting a quarter on an arcade cabinet to signify being next on the game.  They also talk about “Contra dancing” and 1980’s interactions.  There’s also another installment of Prizes From Gabe as well as a new user-submitted VGM Karaoke performance.  At one point, Rob adopts a new console (as seen in the photo), and at another point, the boizz sing about Vanilla Ice.  So nexting etiquette is hardly the subject of this episode -it’s a whole grab bag of stuff, including good video game music.  Full track listing below.
