LMH Mixtape #129: Twilight Games

Following up on their launch games focus, Brent and Rob took another suggestion from user Ryan and curated a selection of "twilight" games: games that were published during their console's final year (or years) of active title releases. Taken together, these two mixtapes form an engaging and symmetrical retrospective on composition and hardware -- like bookends, made of chiptune.

Episode 239: The Olympics

This episode is Olympics themed, especially on Rob’s end of track selections.  Different years also come up a bit, years like 1996 and 1943 and so forth.  Should arm wrestling be an event at the Olympics? Should Rob become a full time psychic?  These questions and more might just be answered on the Legacy Music Hour.  Full track listing below.
