Larry ditches NGI as Archie’s Sonic and Mega Man comic writer Ian Flynn fills in, joining Kyle and Slider for, fittingly, a tribute to the greatest blue heroes of video games: Sonic & Mega Man! He talks a bit about the new Mega Man comic book and gushes over the awesomeness of Sonic Generations, as Kyle talks about the amazing Arnold Schwarzenegger death metal band Austrian Death Machine. They also take a listen to songs from Beatdrop, Game Over, LeeBro, Sukotto42, Jun Senoue, and of course many more.
ALSO: Kyle and Larry sit down with Bassil Silver, the bassist of hardcore nostalgic metal band POWERGLOVE. Bassil joins us from the road as Powerglove tours with Symphony X and Blackguard. Hear how the tour is going, get some insight into the band’s beginnings, their writing, how being signed to a label is working for them, and listen to TWO Sonic & Mega Man-related tracks from their sophomore effort, Metal Kombat for the Mortal Man!
Slider is also issued her NGI Art Challenge for the week, and finally creates Rhino Blastoseed!
