Let this mixtape take the lead and escort you through a stress-free tour of the tunes, much like your older siblings or cousins used to when you were still learning the ropes as Player 2.

Episode 169: Best Of Year In Review 4

Another year comes to an end and as usual, Brent and Rob countdown their TOP TEN favorite video game music track of the year (Episodes 158 through 168).  To be more specific, Brent counts down his top ten favorite tracks while Rob makes it clear that all of his tracks are number ones.  Tracks selected for this episode are only pieces the boizz became aware of within the last two years (during the year hiatus and last 11 episodes) and that were played on the podcast.  Rob also tells an exciting story about a brawl he got into recently in Port Town.  Note: The “perfect” soundbyte is a bleep, used for censoring.  Bringing in year five with some action -the action of Rob completely falling asleep during the last quarter of the episode.  Another note: Please excuse and be prepared for how boring Brent sounds when talking about computer music during the beginning of the episode.  Partial track listing below.

Game - Composer - Song - Company - Console - Year (North American release unless otherwise indicated)

LMH Mixtape #32: Hudson Soft

The Hudson Soft focus is guaranteed to put a smile on your face.  It has a little bit of everything: cheerful melodies, tense percussion, groovy baselines, sleepy waltzes -- even a bit of spooky carnival calliope sprinkled in for good measure. Like a trail mix of wacky and delicious flavors, this setlist definitely hits the spot.
