LMH Mixtape #64: Ninja Games

Just as there is a wide variety in ninja types (turtle ninjas, intergalactic ninjas, ninjas named Joe), so too is there great variety in the video game music of ninja-themed titles.  As you listen through Brent and Rob's hand-picked tunes, many of which backed the adventures of some the greatest shadow assassins of all time, you might find yourself wondering where YOUR ninja future is headed.  Will you become a legendary warrior after you graduate, or will you just stay at home, binging on smoke bombs and cereal?  Ultimately it's up to you, so grab your diploma, throw your shuriken in the air, and try to make the most of it.

LMH Mixtape #63: Flying and Shooting 2

In this unexpectedly romantic episode, the boizz revisited the flying and shooting genre and reminded us of just how awesome it is.  The original episode was a milestone as well, with Brent and Rob announcing their official induction into the Nerdist network.  So clink your glasses in honor of the Legacy Music Hour, these tunes, and yourselves.  May our worlds never be forgotten.
