  1. Well, only two of the four albums I mentioned were on that last (City in Motion might not really count since the album came out this year but not the game, but I'm just sassing you back if you can't tell).
  2. Hey all, 2012 was a good year in game music and geeky music, and as such there may have been some albums which passed under the radar. Do any of you guys have an album released in the last year which you loved, but you think didn't get much attention? Or maybe you just have something you want to evangelize about? Let me hear them. I'm going to compile some of them in a blog post on 8BitX as well, so keep an eye out. I should give you a few suggestions, to be fair. Quid pro quo, so here you go: SOUNDSHOCK 2: FM FUNK TERROR - Original Sega Genesis-style chiptune funk compilation that will spontaneously bedeck you with the coolest of shades. Cities in Motion - The game came out in previous years, but the album became available for purchase this year, SO: unrelentingly fun and relaxing ambient music, jazz, and goodvibes for your work day. Fastfall: Dustforce OST - The game itself never reached the same (unparalleled) popularity of Super Meat Boy, but it's a good'un. The soundtrack is equally formidable, and shows off a wide range of lo-fi chiptune, dance, ambient, and industrial sounds. NES Jams - Shnabubula wrecks your face with NES piano covers. You are not prepared. So what did I miss? If you can link to a (legal) download or streaming page, you'll be my new favorite internet friend.
  3. Knights of the Round, part of a new wave of video game cover bands, bring metal to Final Fantasy. MAGFest just added them to their Stage 2 lineup, and tonight you can hear their album Gaia's Bane for the first time ever on the 8Bit Extravaganza at 9PM Eastern on 8BitX.com. My buddy Will Strouse will host, and it's sure to be a great time. The band will join him live, so be in the chat room and join in on the craziness. If you can't make it live, hit up the podcast for a recording.
  4. It's hard to believe it's been three years since I started Radio Free Gamer on 8BitX, and in that time I hope I've shared some great music and fun memories with you. Sad as I am to announce and end to RFG, the wheels are already in motion on my next project. Read more about it here at our home page. I'm recruiting hosts for my new show; I need geeks who specialize in movies, comics, tv, music, tech, and more. I'm looking for people who are interested in building a fantastic show. If you think you have the chops, email me at radiofreegamer(at)gmail(dot)com.
  5. I'm sure Journey is a game that doesn't need much introduction in these parts. The music is nothing short of amazing, and we'll have Austin Wintory on Radio Free Gamer this Wednesday at 7PM Eastern to discuss it. Have a question for him? Leave it here, or join us in the chatroom to ask it yourself. Hope to see you there!
  6. He's the guy in the weird armor who spins the tunes at Magfest, and now heads up his own net label GameChops. Y'all know him as Dj CUTMAN, and he's live on RFG this week to talk about all the happenings at his new site. Join us at 7PM Eastern TONIGHT to get the scoop. We're also going to play some music from the latest Ubiktune release Soundshock 2: FM Funk Terror. This album is good. Be careful where you listen though, because the funk had me dancing at my desk at work. That was nothing compared to what the TERROR did to me... Anyways, I hope to see you there tonight!
  7. Lauren Goodnight, voice actress and radio host, will join us tomorrow night to discuss her new show! 8Bit Sex, the latest addition to the lineup of live shows on the 8BitX Internet Radio Network, is Love Line for nerds! Lauren, a former sex-ed teacher, will answer everything you want to know but were afraid to ask. So tune in to Radio Free Gamer Wednesday at 7PM Eastern to listen to the interview, then check back on Friday at 10PM to hear 8Bit Sex! We'll also air some amazing new stuff from Virt, as well as some remixes and demoscene. Hope to see you there!
  8. I'll also bamp, and request a sticky. Good job Kyle!
  9. Tomorrow night on RFG we're doing a special album giveaway to promote the Nubuwo Kickstarter campaign! Just join us in the chat at 7PM Eastern tomorrow, Wednesday the 29th, for your chance to win. Also, be sure to check out that campaign page. For $9 you can get a bundle of albums including music from Danny Baranowsky, Masashi Hamauzu, Laura Shigihara, Floex, and more! Be quick though, because the Kickstarter campaign ends on Thursday. Hope to see you there, and please help us spread the word.
  10. I can't spill the beans on what we'll be celebrating, but be absolutely 100% sure to tune in to Radio Free Gamer and The 8Bit Extravaganza tonight. Several big guests will join us to discuss the release of a big project, one which will have an impact on fans of video game music everywhere. So don't be late: the party starts at 7PM Eastern and goes on until 1AM!
  11. Hey all! We're live tonight with Terence Lee, composer for Dustforce! Be sure to check it out and ask your questions live in the chat room!
  12. It's xmas! You should be celebrating with your families, but instead you're going to listen to RFG tonight at 7PM Eastern. Why? Cause we're giving away digital albums and Steam games. Join us in the chat, and maybe Gabe Newell shall shine his sweet countenance upon you and bless you with the gift of game. Or maybe you'll just listen as I get drunk on holiday-themed adult beverages. One or the other. Tune in and find out.
  13. Hey guys! We've fixed the technical difficulties from last week, and we're going to be live at 7PM Eastern tonight! Be sure to join us live at 8BitX.com/ircchat.
  14. Hey all, Shael Riley will join us this week to talk about 'Ultimate Songs from the Pit', the updated version of Shael Riley and the Double Ice Backfire's debut album. The music is tight and catchy, and the lyrics are insightful and brutally honest. I'd definitely recommend checking it out. If you'd like to catch the interview, be sure to tune in and hit up the chat room tonight at 7PM Eastern. If you can't make it live, then check out the podcast. Thanks!
  15. I'm really impressed with how this turned out. 'Area Dolls Guy' has been a personal favorite of mine ever since you guys dropped the track, and I'm glad to see it here. 'Asian Kids' still has to be my favorite song on the album though. BTW, I plugged this in my thread but Shael is going to join me live tonight at 7PM Eastern on 8bitx. You can tune in and chat here if you'd like to ask some questions.
