LMH Mixtape #85: Ending Music 2

Ah, that feeling when you complete a game and get to enjoy the emotional catharsis of its ending music.  These tunes are often some of the most emotionally resonant in a soundtrack, and there are so many great ones out there that a single Legacy Music Hour focus just wasn't gonna cut it.  Get ready to feel those triumphant and/or bittersweet feelings all over again again with this second Ending Music mixtape.

LMH Mixtape #84: Capcom

The boizz took us on another company tour for Episode 84, and what a tour it was.  We already knew Capcom as the home of Mega Man, but what about their other titles like Section-Z?  Knights of the Round?  Capcom Quiz: Hatena? no Daibouken?  The Legacy Music Hour made sure they all got their time to shine on this setlist, right alongside the Blue Bomber himself.


Instant new favorite:  Mega Man 5 - Charge Man
Brewed new favorite:  Knights of the Round - Expedition

Episode 209: Creed II

In Episode 209, the boizz talk a little bit about France, Mary Poppins, and Seinfeld’s possible copy of SimCity for the NES, but Brent really talks a lot about Creed II, that is, his own version of it.  The boizz also spent a lot of time understanding the Sonic influence in a 1989 PC Engine track (Sonic came out in 1991).  Full track listing below.
