It's super effective!

Had you going there for a while, didn't we?

Weekly. Ha!

Sorry for the absence, fearless listeners, but Nintendo Life's chip and game music podcast NLFM is back on track after a too-long hiatus. And boy do we have some doozies for your ears!

In case you've missed out on the fun so far, 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. It's not all games either as we highlight musicians and albums we really like, as well as your own original gaming compositions.

To prevent the foul smell that comes with missing episodes, subscribe to our Podcast feed or download it using this direct link. You can also find us on iTunes (don't forget to rate us!) and also drop original compositions of yours you'd like us to play on the show in our Soundcloud dropbox.

Like James Bond, NLFM will return. Unlike Bond, it will be on October 10 for our second annual Halloween Hootenanny. Got a specific spooky request? Sound off in the comments or on Twitter.
