A lot of birthdays are mentioned on Episode 194, not to mentioned the start of a new year for LMH.  Rob also tells a story about him losing at Street Fighter II -and in front of a user.  But other than that, the episode is pretty focused on the music, which is really good.  Full track listing below.

  1. Heh, that episode thumbnail is great.

    I haven't listened to the 'cast yet, but I'm very prepared to hear someone be told that perhaps raising a family would be be a more fruitful option for them than to continue to fight in the streets.

  2. The bass sample from Hourai Highschool sounds like a double bass played with a bow. I have no concrete evidence to back this up but True Ending from BOF sounds like it was composed by Mari Yamaguchi. That track sounds like it could have been on Super Ghouls and Ghost which she composed. True Ending is like the journey through life, starting out as a goofy adolescent and turning into a regal old man. At the end it comes full circle and even though he has matured there is still a hint of childishness.

  3. One of the strongest eps of 2017. Rob, your loss may have stung, but here in November -- by which time I would only hope the pain has lessened -- I can only attempt to salve your remaining ache by properly identifying your Virtua Fighter 2 selection as a user-designated JAM.

  4. Hey Rob and Brent I really love the newest episodes. Just to let you guys know, I just found out I'm actually following Dean Evans on Youtube; yes that's the Waterworld composer Dean Evans. Anyway I told him to check out the Podcast. If you want to get in touch with him, he uploads his game music rips on Youtube as well. He just did Flinstones for the SNES. Oh and he does reply to his Youtube comments.
