Critical Music 17: Faces Melted

March 22nd, 2010 . by Josh

Two releases back to back you ask? Yes! With this being the week of PAX East I wanted to make sure I got this months Critical Music out on time and seeing as I’ll be pretty busy, I needed to get it out fairly early in the week. As I mentioned on the episode, this will probably be the least popular Critical Music to date as it’s very metal influenced and I just get the feeling that won’t fly with most people, but we’ll see.

Music in this episode: The Megas, The Minibosses, The Protomen, Powerglove, Vomitron, Entertainment System, The Advantage, NESKimos, Year 200X, Nerd Army, The Smash Brothers, Stage 3-1

Do yourself a favor and buy the albums these bands put out, they’re really good!

Critical Music Live!

March 20th, 2010 . by Josh

This probably won’t end up on iTunes as it was merely a quick experiment that turned into nearly two hours of recording while talking to good friend of the show chiahippo. But if you want to listen to the Critical Music Live experiment then here you go.

March 7th, 2010 . by Josh

After our fun experiment with the PSNerds where we played White Knight Chronicles while talking about it, Kyle now returns to the show and is a bit under the influence.

Critical Music 16: Requests Defeated

February 25th, 2010 . by Josh

Though at the start of the show I said I may not get this out on time. It’s because I didn’t think I would find enough music in time but luckily I remembered all of mik’s requests over at the forums and that gave me enough to push it over the edge!

Also the stupid id3 tag didn’t want to update for some reason so in the track listing please note that #2 should be Super Smash Bros. Melee.

Music in this episode: Descent II, Super Smash Bros. Melee, Time Lord, Heavy Rain, Endless Ocean, Killer Instinct, Lost Odyssey, Gyruss, VVVVVV, Persona 3, Policenauts, Bust A Groove, Dark Void, Secret of Mana, Painkiller.

Critical Strike 51: Critical Nerd Chronicles

February 14th, 2010 . by Josh

With Kyle gone, we decided to try something new and discuss a game that not many people in the community have been paying attention to. With that we’ve decided to call in BillyBillBlack and Pete Dodd from the PSNerds podcast to talk about White Knight Chronicles while playing the quests online so if you have no interest in this game, I’d skip this episode. We’d like to thank those who left us iTunes reviews and the normal show will return in two weeks with Kyle’s return.

Music in this episode: White Knight Chronicles
