Play

This episode is dedicated to the memory of Ryu Umemoto, 1974-2011.

This week, Kyle, Larry and Slider check out entries from July’s Dwelling of Duels competition, tracks from albums released at the Comiket 80 doujin convention, and the usual round of music from OverClocked ReMix, KWED, and more. Also, Audi “Akumu” returns as Nitro Game Injection pays tribute and respects to the life and career of Japanese composer Ryu Umemoto, who unfortunately passed away on Wednesday, August 17th, 2011. They talk about his life, inspiration, and the legacy that left his undeniable mark on the world of video game music (discussion begins at 1:43:45. )

Larry also provides an art challenge for Slider this week, inspired by the awesome indie hit game Bastion: The Kid’s Name.
