Episode 19: Ending Music

Brent and Rob share some of their favorite ending themes: *SPOILER ALERT* They talk about the endings to many of the games presented, so if you haven't beat the game yet, and you care, pay close attention when to fast forward.  Or maybe wait until you've beaten every video game to listen to this episode.  But, they do also introduce an embarrassing new segment called VGM Karaoke, so...  Full track listing below.

  3. Ok cool.

    P.S. On the racing episode, Brent said he listend to Super Hang-On, but did not like it. I was shocked!

    I thought Super Hang-On had some of the best "racing music" of the 16 bit era. (Don't know about 8 bit that much)

    Anyway that is all.
