NOTE: Nitro Game Injection and GameFuel will be taking a temporary hiatus for about a month. See you next time!
Arecibo Radio and Nitro Game Injection, in association with GameChops, are proud to present the ‘WORLD 1-2′ PRE-RELEASE LISTENING PARTY! Featuring acclaimed composers Manami Matsumae, Keiji Yamagishi, Akira Yamaoka, and Austin Wintory, along with remixers halc, Benjamin Briggs, Stemage, and chiptune composers Danimal Cannon, Chipzel, Eirik Suhrke, and MORE!
Kyle and Larry are check out music from the brand new Sonic Stadium Music Adventure album, the latest releases from OverClocked ReMix, and tons of other cool stuff from Yoga Fire!, Gibs, Mega Beardo, Magical Trick Society, and plenty more. They are also joined by a VERY special guest: Ares of the Cheetahmen HIMSELF!
On this edition of NGI, Kyle and Larry talk chips, Nemo kicking the ass of the east coast, get uber-nerdy about superheroine costumes, and discuss both the untimely deaths of Commodore USA CEO Barry Altman and Heavy Rain composer Normand Corbeil. They also check out more entries from the MAGFest 2013 Dwelling of Duels competition, a smattering of musical arrangements from sports games, a brand new track from OverClocked ReMix and KWED.
Larry continues to shake off the debilitating disease that caused him to miss MAGFest XI, so Kyle flies solo for one segment before getting joined by Rexy, prolific OC ReMixer and host of the brand new show from our friends at RadioSEGA: SEGA Mixer Drive! Slider also makes her grand return and has a rather saddening announcement regarding her future on NGI. Rexy also calls Kyle’s manhood into question thanks to his affinity for the color purple, and the two recount some of the great acts from MAGFest last week while listening to some great music from Yuzo Koshiro, On Being Human, Armcannon, VikingGuitar, coda, Benjamin Briggs, The OneUps, and more!
The internet is SERIOUSLY SERIOUS business as Kyle and Larry discuss the SERIOUSNESS of video game music. This episode features a SERIOUSLY awesome cameo from Larry’s Lady Paige, some SERIOUS discussion on the merits of Turtles in Time and the beat-em-up genre in general, SERIOUS dishwashing and Christmas tree setup, and of course some SERIOUSLY badass VGM from SERIOUSLY cool folks like Shnabubula, The OneUps, Pongball, Devastus, Disco Dan, and SERIOUS solo tracks from Mike Villalobos and Amanda Lapre, the guitarists of Descendants of Erdrick. SERIOUSLY!
Larry also drops the info on his secret talk show podcast hosted by himself and The Lady Paige: Dinner Date Discussions. Go check it out!
Kyle and Larry are BACK! Nitro Game Injection returns with the usual shenanigans, interruptions, and silliness you expect, as well as the awesome video game music you crave! The guys check out some new tracks from Bryface, jdproject, Super Guitar Bros, Those Who Fight, Hat, mv and many more, covering great games like Ys III, Street Fighter, Borderlands 2, Angry Birds, and Mega Man 3. They also crack a joke that Jordan “bLiNd” Aguirre and Joel “Jivemaster” Bird should remix Jordan vs. Bird, and then are surprised when it turns out the game has awesome music by Rareware legend David Wise. Larry also creates a new character for the upcoming Dreamcast 2 exclusive, Knuckles Chaotix 2: Gerbil the Guinea Pig! (artwork by Rexy )
Larry and Slider are away taking care of personal stuff, so Kyle flies solo on Nitro Game Injection for the first time since 2007. He’s joined in the middle of the show for a quick chat with the very awesome and prolific YouTube guitarist FamilyJules7x, who is currently in the middle of his second year of non-stop weekly video game music covers! He also shines the spotlight on tons of other YouTube arrangers, including CSGuitar89, LennartAlsing, katethegreat19, Taylor Davis, and many more. Be sure to check out these great musicians and support their work!
