  1. Faxanadu has some great Music. The Game is great, dont believe the haters, its like Battle of Olympus or Zelda 2: Links Adventure, just more balanced. I can recomend the Main Theme from Faxanadu ( which is the best song of the game. Its actually a spinoff of the Xanadu/Dragon Slayer series of JRPGs. Altough this one is a sidescrolling Action Adventure. Highly recomended!

  2. Id actually like to request the Main Theme for the C64 port of "Blood Valley" Its an obsure crappy sidesrolling hack and slash with a great title song. BTW, HORRAY for Dizzy! Loved the games on the C64, good times. I can understand why you would do the podcast monthly. Im sure its gonna be just as great and longer. Cant wait to hear about the other changes.

  3. I know this is probably too recent, it's from 2001, but I love the track 'Spira Unplugged' from Final Fantasy X. Great game, amazing soundtrack.

    1. Also, once a month sounds about right. I prefer a longer episode like this one, instead of a 25 minute episode. Great stuff, regardless. And if it means more time for videos, that's pretty rad.

  4. Yo DJ Smith! Got some requests for you:
    Ending Credit Theme - Gex (Sega Saturn)
    Yun/Yang Stage Theme (Arcade Version) - Street Fighter 3 3rd Strike (Arcade)
    Pressure Cooker - VVVVVV (PC)

    Looking forward to future episodes.

  5. Oh, by the way, Faxanadu is pronounced Fa then you go Xanadu as the "fa" in Faxanadu actually means "Famicom". So the full name of Faxanadu is actually "Famicom Xanadu". I guess they shortened it to Faxanadu due to the NES not being called Famicom outside of Japan.
