He's worked on Demon Chic and the upcoming One Way Trip, doing things including writing the story, composing music, and coming up with the unique art style of both. We chat about working on these different facets of game development, what it's like to be an indie developer on PS4, and the April Nintendo Direct.

Season 4, Episode 4: The Basics of DKC (feat. Ant Dahl)!!

Another episode up this week! This one is last week's with good friend and host of the up-and-coming Fortuna Podcast, Ant Dahl! We chat about his extensive history with radio hosting and podcasting. We also talk about the things we love about Donkey Kong Country, Metal Gear Solid, and Mega64. There were some technical difficulties in the studio that we bring up as well, but thanks to the magic of editing, you don't have to worry about that!

Season 4 Episode 2: Disgaea Is for Retirees (feat. Heidi Kemps)!!

Hey 8-bit Italians,
It's been a long time since I've put anything up here. Too long, I know, and I'm sorry for that. Anyway, season 4 of Boston's favorite chiptune and gaming talk radio show is in full effect!

After a great premiere with guests Stephen and Bryan Kelly of Whales are Whales (which, unfortunately, was not recorded), the show has another jam-packed week with a full discussion on the Japanese games industry, culture, multimedia products, the upcoming GDC, and NIS America's big new announcements ( inc. RODEA!!!) with expert games writer Heidi Kemps!

Listen to the episode here!

(P.S. If you wanna know more about the different subjects we touched on, definitely check out Heidi's site, and if you like that, consider supporting her Patreon!)

Season 3, Episode 5: Sleepy Smashers (Feat. Joe & Christina Walker!)

It's a very mellow episode this week, as me and veteran guests the Walkers are exhausted! We'd played Smash Bros all day long, and it didn't help that it was extra cold outside. But we push through, providing lots of Smash talk, exclusive amiibo reviews, the ever-rolling Captain Toad hype train, secret projects, glitchy gamez, and some very wintry music. Grab some hot cocoa, a blanket, and settle in for a listen.

Season 3, Episode 4: Gamedaze (Feat. Dr. Ryan)!

     This week, we return from our week's hiatus to talk about attending Gamedays, the annual convention for fans of gaming comedy group Mega64. Talking with us is Dr. Ryan, an OG fan of the group and host of the Ryan and Cody Ride or Die stream (Wednesday nights at midnight EST). We discuss how he got into Mega64, what this year's Gamedays was like, and upcoming games like Captain Toad Treasure Tracker and Far Cry 4! Oh yeah, there's also a bit of music in there too. One of the most fun shows in a while, give it a listen!

Season 3, Episode 3: Monokuma Attacks! (Feat. Alyssa Menes!)

Happy belated Halloween! In this week's spooky episode, the studio was attacked by the evil Monokuma, which left our recording capabilities cursed to only be in mono. Thankfully, the fun, posi chat with game composer Alyssa Menes scared off any other ghosts and ghouls. They did haunt this week's tracks, though, so expect some scary tunes!
