Nitro Game Injection #409: Is This Retro?


Kyle gets into a pedantic argument with himself about what even is “retro” while gushing over Materia Collective’s fantastic new Super Mario 64 album Hang on to Your Hat, along with some orchestral Streets of Rage, some nice acoustic trappings including a track from the Pixel Mixers and Game Grooves charity album Heroes, and in a surprise move that would surely be unexpected from the host of this show, an entire block of Sonic metal remixes!
