| March 13, 2019

Back in the day, video games could rock without featuring anything close to a real guitar. It’s actually a testament to those composers’ ingenuity that they could conjure something from those sound processors that sounded unmistakably like an electric guitar. This episode is an eclectic mix of some of those remarkably hard-rocking soundtracks. (Long live Barbara the Bat!)
