Basically, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles were a cultural phenomenon, having a huge influence on the interests of youngsters of the 8-bit and 16-bit era generation, so much so that there were many video games based on them.  Brent and Rob basically focus on these games for Episode 67.  Enjoy a couple slices of pizza while you discover the Turtle Power within this great music.  Cowabunga!  Full track listing below.

  1. I still have Coming Out Of Their Shells, the Pizza Hut released TMNT album on cassette. Too bad it's worthless and horrible.

  2. I think Yuzo Koshiro also prefers FM over PCM. Hell, he still uses a PC-88 computer when composing. Here's an interesting interview with him from a while back: http://games.kikizo.com/features/yuzo_koshiro_iv_oct05_p1.asp

  4. Hey, just started listening to your podcast a few weeks ago and was trying to catch up and listen to a bunch of old ones. I just finished listening to this episode and was so happy to hear TMNT 3, "Cast" get some love! My video game cover band covered that on our last release, and we were shocked to find it had never been covered by another vgcb. It's such a great tune, and it made my day to hear the track get the attention it deserves on this episode. You guys have good taste! =)
    Keep up the good work!

    1. Hey! We played you guys on Episode 35, the covers episode! Loved your rendition of the Blades of Steel intro!

    2. Wow, literally had no idea about that, thanks for the love!
      I was very jealous to hear that you had seen The Advantage live. They are our favorite cover band, it would have been sweet to see them live.
      Also, being from Grand Rapids MI, it's nice to be made aware of Destiny Games. It's right next to the Ikea that my wife and I go to when needing cheap furnishings. I think I'll drop my wife off at Ikea the next time we make the 2 hour trek to Canton and I'll go do some fun shopping.
