Show Notes – RFG World 2 Level 35

Monday, November 29th, 2010

This week’s guest was Nick, PR ninja for the Music and Gaming Festival (MAGFest).  In case you haven’t been listening, MAGFest is a video game geek’s dream: a non-stop party with some of the best video game composers, internet personalities, and cover bands out there.  Nick gave us a pretty darn good rundown of why MAGFest 9 will rock harder than a golem’s backside, but I’d like to take a second to reinforce his main point: MAGFest is a party.  It isn’t a giant convention, it isn’t a ridiculously expensive professional consortium, and it isn’t a glitzy industry expo.  You go to hang out with like-minded individuals and your favorite bands an composers.  Awesome.

Anyway, now that I’m done plugging MAGFest for the nth time, let’s get down to what was played during the show:

Danny Baranowsky’s “Canabalt” Soundtrack: Pay what you want ($0 and up!) for the latest soundtrack from “Super Meat Boy” composer Daniel Baranowsky.  This outing has a decidedly different tone from  SMB, focusing less on rock and chip music elements in favor of tense orchestral elements and electronica.   “Canabalt” itself is a browser-based platformer which you can play for free right here! Featured on this episode – RUN!, Daring Escape, Mach Runner, Fathom Megamix

Armcannon's "Return of the Attack of the Legend of Pizzor"

Armcannon’s “Leg Vacuum” and  ”Return of the Attack of the Legend of Pizzor”: In case you haven’t subscribed to our new and improved monthly email newsletter, Armcannon is our first band of the month!  We first met them at MAGFest 8, and we’re looking forward to seeing them perform again at MAGFest 9!  They were kind enough to let us play some of their tracks behind our interview with Nick from MAGFest.  The tracks aren’t free, but they’re certainly worth the price.  Featured on this episode – Tecmo Superbowl, Kraid, Smegaman 3, Still More Fighting, X-1234

Jun Ishikawa and Dan Miyakawa’s “Kirby Super Star” Soundtrack: “Kirby Super Star” is a collection of Kirby-themed games for the Super Nintendo which recently saw a remake for the Nintendo DS.  The games themselves range from cute mini-games (“Gourmet Race”, “Megaton Punch”) to full-out adventure games (“Milky Way Wishes”, “Great Cave Offensive”).  Ishikawa and Miyakawa’s soundtrack is appropriately varied in tone, with a wide selection of well-orchestrated tunes.  One of the classics which really displayed the audio power of the Super Nintendo.  Featured on this episode – Time to Learn, Float Islands, Marshmallow Castle, Cocoa Cave, Crystal Field and Mystery Paradise, Grape Garden, Gladiator Kirby, Staff Role, Kirby Dance

Jiggin' Jon T.

OverClocked Remixes by JJT: “Jiggin” Jon T, of OCRemix and Bad Dudes fame, is a rocking guitar, piano, and trumpet player.  He has some really solid remixes which are really unique in tone, including his melancholy “Final Fantasy VI” mix, his haunting “F-Zero” mix, and his ska-inspired “Mega Man 3″ mix.  Featured on this episode: Anthem of Exile, The Flood Plain, Magnet Missiles, Murder Your Friends Boogie

Thanks for checking out this week’s episode.  Be sure to join us on Wednesday evening at 7PM Eastern for our live shows!
