Episode 61 – Sounds of the Strikes

In the 1990s, the Strike series was like the video games equivalent of a hit action movie franchise, with bad guys seeking world domination, daring missions, and loads of big explosions. I loved these games when I was a kid (and possibly too young to be playing them!) so here is a playlist made up of tunes from their soundtracks playing on many systems including the Sega Mega Drive, SNES, and Sony Playstation!

Episode 10 – N64 Showcase

It’s our second system-specific episode on the bounce, following on from Episode 9’s Speccy focus by pressing fast forward and landing on the mighty Nintendo 64! Nintendo’s cartridge-based 64-bit beast was big on graphics and pure gameplay, not necessarily making sound and music a priority, but many VGM composers still managed to produce some great pieces for this much-celebrated machine. For this episode, I’m joined by special guest Michael Thorne!
