This is a free play, so you can expect a nice variety of classic VGM tunes.  Also, be sure to check out the full episode for discussion about the Portland Retro Gaming Expo, what it means to be "Tetris ready,” and classic "nexting" etiquette.


A few favorites in no particular order:

Lightening Force: Quest for the Darkstar - Silvery Light of the Moon (Normal Ending)
Little Samson - Dragon’s Theme
Panorama Cotton - Scenario 1

LMH Mixtape #169: Best Of Year In Review 4

This was the first "Year In Review" since the show came back from the hiatus.  Even though there were only eleven episodes to choose from (since the show switched to a monthly format), there were still more than plenty of fantastic tracks to fill out these top ten lists.  Brent starts things off this year with his number ten, and then alternating back and forth with Rob, the boizz count down to their number one.


No favorites this episode, because as Rob said, they're all "Top Ten.”

LMH Mixtape #168: Nintendo Power

Now the boizz are playing with power, Nintendo Power!  Brent and Rob each picked two different issues of Nintendo Power magazine (kindly donated by LMH user Julian (Hoo-lee-ahn)) to draw music selections only from games featured within those issues.


Favorite: Casino Kid II - Ending
Another favorite: Contra Force - Level 1
Also a favorite: KickMaster - Final Boss Pt 1

Episode 259: Pubescent Fangs

Rob falls asleep a couple times, but that’s pretty normal at this point, right?  Also, the gang talks about what a teenage Dracula might have been like, so that’s fun.  Full track listing below.
