Listen: Ms Rob Nichols, GM, Polio discussed on Rhythm and Pixels Video Game Music Podcast
"My Name Ms Rob Nichols every week. We listen to great video game music of all consoles and all generations. If it's good we're GONNA WE'RE GONNA listen to today's uh-huh elements earth fire wind water all mabon heart even heart. Someone has two parts. I think we're the heart because I went and fires already out there. That is true September's a great song. I love that song. Let's just let's just listen to that right now. Dropped me right I got you. I think it's fine. I think our listeners will appreciate it in the end. I think it'd be funnier like what the heck's Gordo <music> music. I don't know there's something coming up with either dude anyway. Thanks everyone who joined us on last week's episode. It was a live streamed episode in which I just gave it a stupid name which really didn't have much to do with the episode except for the quiz honestly stupid names are what make them because literally the only GonNa take us so far so many wordstar with the letter P and then then the I want to say that if you go to our youtube page on YouTube dot com slash rhythm in pixels you'll find some clips from our live streamed episodes so any kind of interesting clips over the next few weeks. There's GonNa be like little five or six minute clips from the live episodes that were funny. That were the Trivia Games that you play with each other stuff. That's appropriate to release to the public but if you're a Patriot member you would you'd have been there and and you also get access to all of it. I mean obviously there's something to be said about the fact that all things considered we even on the Patriot on live stuff. That's it's not on the episode. We never really doing anything. We're like we had like a ten year old. Who was a patron somehow? They're gonNA make all my freaking years. That's not going to happen. Yes we still it's generally clean cut. It's mostly clean yeah that's life. There are some exceptions like I mean I go to the gym and don't shower come over like ah yeah there you go otherwise it's fairly clean well. I mean the the listeners. Don't get that smell that is true but that's right. That's for me. Let's go to Jim idea. It is killing me because sometimes you come over here and you're just like wiped out but this time you come over. You're you're absolutely fine. I don't know how mad that really wanted really did did me in. They killed me. Okay because of the lunch power of lunch ables. Yes multiples are fantastic vittal at a friend the other day she'll be some grief really appreciate you could have gotten it for cheaper if he just bought the individual components went yeah but then there's not a Lungibu I want the package bake pizza. He's across with the tomato sauce baggy and small bits of cheese. You want the whole thing. I'm okay with all of that. I mean I don't eat meat but I'm okay with all of that. The problem is the packaging packaging. We'll give it because a lot of it's not recyclable. I'm on the package. Recycle all plastic okay but your mind the up put the wrong benefit but I can fix that later. It's been so it's all right all right so <hes> we start the third explained the topic so today he is September Ninth Two Thousand Nineteen yes which has twenty years to the day since the American release of the Sega dreamcast which is funny because exist fairly close to the original date nine ninety nine nine nine nine nine yeah. It's <hes> of course but yeah it's twenty years. Twenty years is disturbing to me too when I think about it twenty years ago to this day where some things that have happened. My nephew was born that this morning forty years ago Oh wow well that evening because he was born the eighth but cows close enough. I was in lying Madrid castle at midnight on the eighth so as to say different <hes> well I was also in college right freaking weird allison finished costs too long ago way you turn a student but uh-huh very thick. What else is like life was just so different I want to say a dreamcast was the second game console sold that I got on launch day first beaming and six four yeah? I don't think I've ever done that and I don't think that's a big surprise but like there's that one count one listener. His monocle just shattered. I've just never done it. <hes> I think that totally tracks with how how do the due to our show but I would I would like to save really early on is that we are doing this kind of in part with our podcast brothers. XP GM radio so whenever podcast advisor listening to are listening on or spotify all those places look up x. v. g. m. Radio with Mike Levy and Justin Timberlake timberlake and Bieber and they have a great podcast. It's a lot lot more professional than ours. They do a lot more research on on composers and things I literally eat lunch ables and then talk about stuff rob cleaned headphones and then goes to work yeah. Actually I have to clean my ears I I don't. I don't even know what's going on but I check them out. They're they're also doing a drink a special dreamcast episode in their own way and their own special special way so ex. GM radio check them out. XP GM RADIO DOT COM SLASH CO SLASH UK slash Ford Slash Question Mark Mark Link topics slash the link will be on 'em so no nine the real league will be the notes don't Labo you so where was I worth mentioning so just got to point this out that I think rob and Mike Atta concern that we would have overlapping tracks know at the time you did at the time I did not no frigging way. We're going to have overlapping relax two weeks ago. I was like maybe we should compare notes. I want the surprise though so keeping at this moment as we're recording this we have not heard or seen what their track list is no so we don't know we won't know until you guys do if there was overlapping track so if there is one I would I will eat my their request well in advance and like you know so they can have a life chill. We're like day of baby right party. Tom <hes> so so when the dreamcast came out I was working at that arcade down the Road Arcade Slash Family Fun Center Fund Scape and I heard about the SEGA system I'm coming out and I didn't know much about it. All I knew that there was going to be a sonic the hedgehog game that was in three D and it was not excited about that white so you weren't excited about it before forgive him before you knew how poorly the camera worked. I just like how hard it was. The Control Board excited. I was like three Sonic Athlete Sonic Three D blast. Did you play three Ridi Mario though I have I think that's what really I think that's what's treated my <hes> my image of what sonic three book like that's why because I we know but I didn't like three D Mario. I still don't you don't like Three D. Mari I live in a two D. World for now now. Oh my God man I I I just I never I never enjoyed. It didn't think it was cool. I recognized is the people like it. That's fine. Don't get me wrong. Every everyone likes different things but my mind is so then so then right so <hes> <hes> my friend at the time Darius shutouts Darius who listens the show actually I think he does that's his awesome. He brought his system in. I think it was the same weaken. The system came out and we hooked it up into a big screen TV in this little theater room that we did like this weird like like motion like chair moving thing oh that one one last year and a helicopter or shares move and it's supposed to be like other things are small anyway but we hooked up the dreamcast in there and he was like you like fighting games right now like yes. streetfighter three is my jam or whatever was Alpha and the only team fighting game that was on at the time was king of Fighters Ninety Eight <hes> and I was like Oh fighters riders I don't I don't like King of Fighters Street fighter and then the turned me around like this absolutely just brought me around because that was what got you into K. fight. That's that's what got me into K fighters like mainly. I used to play a lot when I was a kid because they were cheaper on the but I got into it with that and then later on the arcades closed and that's fine and then I moved I went to work for Electronics Boutique the and that's where I got my first dreamcast. Oh man what did I get. What that I got with a fancy was not yet? It could have been jet set radio. No Tony Hawk Doc. Tony Hawk my first game really yeah so because I know when I bought Avocados calm like probably like when I bought the system I bought on launch launch and at the time anyway they they had an unprecedented lineup of loss tiles now. I'm not saying equality because O Ooh J. Chew Chew Chew Rocket Nicole Walker woman. That was my first one's Apo- yeah it was a weird game. I'd never got good at kicked bad at that. That game love to two rocket was controlled chaos on but let's say here real quick story then. Let's because we have so much music. I was actually considering adding more music to this episode but there's a lot I I technically could do you wanna get into a track and then we'll talk dreamcast stories or why the heck not so. This is nine so this is you. Oh Oh no I mean I mean nine so I'm GonNa go with an odd one to start out just because why the hell not so I'm going to pick a track from a game that's called polio polio dump.
