Episode 244: Fingers Crossed

Even though this episode is coming out after Christmas, it was recorded before Christmas, so basically, it's a Christmas episode.  The boys talk about Santa and Christmas spirit and stuff like that, and of course there's great music tracks, which are almost like little presents.  Anyway, the Legacy Music Hour really hopes you like their gifts.  Fingers crossed.  Full track listing below.

  1. The Cannon Fodder song originated on the Amiga and had Lyrics with it. You can find it on YouTube[1] of course, for the realease of the game they also put together a full motion music video[2]. The game was ironically anti-war - as given away by the name and also in game. For example your troopers could randomly die by debris or random events, driving the point home that individual soldiers were not held at high importance during war. The game created controversies with war memorial and veteran organizations at time of release. It was also a very well made game, a ton of fun to play.

  2. Hey Brent, I was the one who sent you guys the Hyper Marbles track that you ended up playing on the show (it was the song that sounded a bit like Max Tundra). I had the same confusion as you all did upon hearing the Sega Game Toshokan soundtrack for the first time...

    Great episode!

    1. Also, Akihiko Mori was the man. RIP to an underrated VGM maestro.

  3. Have you checked the jams on the arcade game Varth: Operation Thunderstorm? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=64Ehbd4mrzs&list=PLUPwBkQKCRM6cJcwrgFNeJAUmir-Z8-sj&index=1
