This week, NGI welcomes legendary composer Grant Kirkhope as part of an episode paying tribute to his career as a composer for critically-acclaimed Rare titles like Goldeneye, Perfect Dark, Banjo-Kazooie, and Donkey Kong 64, as well as the recently-released Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning from Big Huge Games. Grant speaks extensively with Kyle, Larry, & Slider about his work on Amalur, as well as sharing his thoughts on his time with Rare and giving some background on the soundtracks for Banjo-Kazooie and Goldeneye, as well as sharing the history behind the infamous DK Rap. He also weighs in on the pepperoni debate from NGI’s Meat Special: you’ll have to listen to hear what his verdict is!
The NGI crew also discuss the new Taco Bell Doritos Locos Tacos, and Slider pays tribute to the Kirkhope fun by drawing what could be the best game/food marketing tie-in EVER. You don’t want to miss this packed episode of Nitro Game Injection!
