NOTE: Nitro Game Injection and GameFuel will be taking a temporary hiatus for about a month. See you next time!
It’s laundry day on Nitro Game Injection! Larry takes the show on the road with him as he drives through Atlanta to do his laundry, and Slider’s brother “Slipper” (or “Brider” ) commandeers the microphone for most of the show. Kyle is lost and confused and has no idea what’s going on, Larry drops all the details on the disappearance of the OC ReMix Kickstarter, and of course Versus Month continues: it’s a classic battle of strength versus magic this week as the Wizards take on the Warriors! Ryan8bit leads the charge for the Warriors, along with Nutritious, Scaredsim, Mazedude, Armcannon and zyk0, and the Wizards retaliate with Level 99, Dhsu, Mustin, mithius and Crush 40 before the final confrontation featuring norg’s epic Wizards & Warriors medley!

This week kicks off the celebration of NGI #200 with the 2-part Greatest Hits Special! Kyle has lined up 50 of NGI‘s most influential remixes, arrangements, and original works, as well as choosing his favorite track from each of the KNGI Records releases for your listening pleasure! The crew recount how they each got into VGM arrangements, Larry talks about married life and weighs in on the Doritos Locos Taco from Taco Bell, the show temporarily shifts to Nitro Film Injection as the crew talk The Avengers (don’t worry; spoilers are kept minimal ), and Slider doesn’t do an art challenge because she’s mean. All this and more on this edition of Nitro Game Injection!
It’s Easter, and Slider is celebrating because she can play video games and eat chocolate again! Kyle celebrates good VGM with selections from Shnabubula, Radiowar, Rexy, Daisuke Ishiwatari and many more, while Slider’s situation turns dire thanks to a cat affection attack. OGNOES NOT TEH KITTEH!
It’s Japan Month on Nitro Game Injection, and the crew celebrate their gaming heritage with the company that started it all for them: Nintendo! Kyle, Larry, and Slider reminisce about the NES kicking off their love of video games, and how Nintendo’s influence has stretched worldwide. They also check out tracks by Aoi Kiba, Rare Candy, Posu Yan, Glome, The Wingless, Showroom Dummy, and many more, covering some of Nintendo’s best franchises!
This week, Kyle channels his inner Tommy Wiseau as Larry finally returns and spills (and shills ) the beans about his trip to the Tokyo Game Show and his involvement with the CIA, as well as his promotion to the BLACK DYNAMITE of OverClocked ReMix. Thanks to Entertainment System, Kyle, Larry, and Slider also reminisce about the Nintendo Cereal System and other video game cereal tie-ins, and start formulating ideas to monetize NGI with a cereal tie-in of its own: Nitro CRUNCH Injection! Look for it soon in a grocery store near you!
The NGI crew is also joined for an interview by Dustin “k-wix” Kulwicki, the main man behind the Cave Story ReMix Project and Mega Man 9: Back in Blue, as well as one of the featured composers (along with Daniel Baranowsky ) on the upcoming Nintendo 3DS release, Cave Story 3D! Dustin gives insight into the production behind all three projects, as well as teasing a potential upcoming album project that may or may not be in the works soon!
