LMH Mixtape #93: Toys

Toizz!  This time Brent and Rob took us through the toy aisle for a sampling of games featuring licensed and unlicensed playthings, as well as tunes from toy-themed titles and levels in general.  Barbie proves she's a force to be reckoned with by capturing a full third of the setlist, and the Treasure Trolls track may inspire you to ad-lib a positive 80’s rap.  There's a lot of wholesome fun to be had here, so queue up this mixtape and get playing!

Episode 213: Sports 5

Another Sports focus!  Rob also gets some things off his chest in a major way.  Brent and Rob attempt to do sports commentary, but they do it in a unique way (one might say a bad way).  Also look out for a NeverEnding Story sing along and a discussion of “soccer” versus “football” in an English accent.  Full track listing below.

LMH Mixtape #92: Punching and Kicking 2

What is it that makes a "true" beat 'em up game?  Is it the punching and kicking, or is hacking and slashing equally legitimate?  Does it count if your deadly weapon is your own hair?  Is EVERY game just a beat 'em up at its core?  These were the difficult questions the boizz asked themselves during their second setlist of Punching and Kicking tunes, now presented to you in mixtape form.

LMH Mixtape #91: Cartoons

In theory, Episode 91 was all about cartoons -- but in practice it was basically a focus on ducks.  Donald, Darkwing, Daffy, and Scrooge are all represented here, along with a few of their non-avian colleagues too.  Throw in some Inspector Gadget, Little Nemo, and Beavis and Butt-head for good measure, and you've got a pretty eclectic lineup of toon tunes.
