Nitro Game Injection #120: Skyrocket Slam


Happy Alien Invasion Day! To help tide you over between the food, booze, and explosives, we have a brand new episode.

Kyle shows that he did not do the research on any discussion points, and unashamedly peddles for money via the NGI Amazon Store while Larry dreams of being famous and mounting 22-inch rims to his wall while swimming in dollar bills. They also discuss the many lyrical interpretations of Mega Man, hate on RPGs, pay tribute to the loss of game development’s whipping boy Duke Nukem Forever, and as always, much more! Special thanks to Mae for writing up the Show Notes this week!

  1. what was the song at or near the end that sounded like mitsuyoshi singing?

    it didnt seem to be in the show notes.

    Anyway, good show, and great music! =}
