Podcast: NLFM Episode 3: BIT.TRIP Down Memory Lane

Alex Neuse of Gaijin Games talks influences, music game design and the future of Commander Video

Welcome to another jolly good episode of NLFM, the chip and game music podcast from Nintendo Life. We're joined in this double-length episode by special guest Alex Neuse of Gaijin Games, who has schlepped along a crate of his favorite chip/game music tunes and also spills a few beans on the next entry in their WiiWare BIT.TRIP series.

While NLFM generally focuses on music from games playable on Nintendo consoles and handhelds, which, thanks to the Virtual Console, also includes the Sega Genesis/Mega Drive and Master System, Turbografx-16, Neo Geo and Commodore 64, this episode broadens the horizons a little bit to include a few Non-tendo tunes.

But they're really great, we swear!

2. Adam Freeland — Fear (Rez, Dreamcast/PS2/XBLA)
3. Gaijin Games — Descent (BIT.TRIP BEAT, WiiWare)
4. Capcom — Dr. Wily Stage 1 (Mega Man 2, NES)
