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!
Today, I played some tracks from the recently-bought-on-Steam game, “Analogue: A Hate Story” and talked a bit about it in the beginning. I also played a few tracks throughout the show from the OST. Also, played some new SΔMMUS from her new “M’OTHER BRAIN” album. Read on for the full playlist!
It’s a show about MEAT! Beef, chicken, pork, and even duck and fish (c’mon, don’t kid yourself; it’s a meat ) are the order of the day on this episode of Nitro Game Injection! The trio also argue over the merits of pepperoni on pizza, crown bacon as their meat of choice, challenge each other to eat meats they haven’t tried before, as well as tons of other hot, meaty discussion. They also take a listen to tracks by Masaya Matsura, goat, Nousentre, The Smash Brothers, Gryzor87, Starship Amazing, and more!
In honor of the amazing Indie Game Music Bundle, Kyle and Larry revisit the indies, taking a listen to some of the most awesome independent game soundtracks like Minecraft, Bastion, Terraria, Touhou, and more. They also get super-excited over the premise of Extreme Road Trip (go download it for free on the Android Market or iOS App Store! ), and Andrew ‘zircon’ Aversa fills in to talk about what went behind the IGMB, as well as offering some professional advice for aspiring composers!
This week, Open Circuit celebrates the music of Indie Games with a playlist comprised of music from The Indie Game Music Bundle. Host jmr has picked out 17 tracks (one from each album ) with the intent of whetting your appetite and encouraging you to kick in a few bucks and supporting a bunch of great independent game music composers. On top of that, we celebrate the best NES music with arrangements of the top five from the Top 100 NES tracks list, as voted on by members of The Shizz.
NOTE: There will be no Nitro Game Injection episode next week, due to San Diego Comic-Con. NGI will be back on July 31st!
Kyle and Slider drive this episode as Larry heads off to Florida for a Palooza of Nerds.

The two also talk about the cuteness and hungriness of Kirby, Kyle’s list of games he needs to play grows as he realizes he needs to play Sunset Riders, Slider talks to herself for awhile, and they both discuss the Kind of Bloop copyright fiasco.

ALSO, Kyle and Larry sat down earlier this week for an interview with Laura “Flute Link” Intravia, the solo vocalist of Video Games Live! In the interview, she talks about how Flute Link was conceptualized, shares some hilarious stories from behind the scenes of Video Games Live, her E3 experiences, and her work as a professional composer and arranger. It’s a packed episode, so don’t miss it!
