I’ve been playing Streets of Rage 2 in preparation for a guest spot on the Retro Spectives podcast, and while most of the music hasn’t really struck my fancy, this track certainly does – it starts out the game as a prologue, but makes it’s way back around again in the final stage. It’s chill and funky and perfect for a Monday.

Drew’s got a crazy idea, and Will is letting him run with it!
64 video game franchises, drafted and seeded into brackets, going head-to-head. Winners are decided by votes on Twitter, and voted on by YOU.
In this episode, we pull seeds for the first round of matches. Will Pokemon beat Tetris? Can Sonic the Hedgehog use speed to defeat Mortal Kombat? What about the stealthy Splinter Cell versus the stealthy Hitman?
Today’s #MusicMonday comes at us from a new 8-bit inspired action game, Cyber Shadow. This game has been quite challenging, and I guess it just reaffirms that I suck at videogames. Regardless, the game is fun and the soundtrack is pretty banging.
Give it a listen, and be sure to check out the game too!
Alright everyone, this Monday we’re getting March Madness started early, as we begin the very first WDGR March Madness Tournament! See your favorite video game franchises go head to head in a battle of votes on Twitter! Who will outlast the other 63 franchises? Over the next few weeks we’ll find out!
64 video game franchises have been chosen and randomly split up into groups of 16. Will and Drew will have a live draft, choosing their favorites. Once they’ve been chosen, they’ll be seeded into a bracket, where they’ll be voted on Twitter. Voting will last for one week, and the game with the most votes will advance to the next round in the tournament.
Each week on the show, we’ll discuss the results and the upcoming matches, which will once again go out to Twitter for voting, until there is one Champion crowned.
Who will come out on top? Will Street Fighter defeat Super Mario? Will The Last of Us take out Uncharted?
Tune in live this Monday at 6:30pm ET to see how it all unfolds. Once the draft is complete, don’t forget to print out your own copy of the bracket and fill it out to play along. And, be sure to follow us on Twitter, @WDGRPodcast, to participate in voting!
Will and Drew are back again with two more game reviews: Indy RPG Haven, and AAA PS3-era title Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception. Does Haven’s adult look at relationships work? Does Uncharted 3 hold up as well as Uncharted 4 does? Tune in to find out!
Be sure to follow WDGR everywhere, and tune in every Monday at 6:30pm ET live on Twitch to join in on the fun!
Well, folks. Another game beat, another #MusicMonday to celebrate. This week’s track is entitled “Nate’s Theme 3.0” and is nothing short of epic. Cue the soaring orchestral violins and the brass for an awakening theme that invigorates the sense of adventure. It’s catchy, fun, dramatic, and full of emotion. Uncharted 3 was a fantastic experience, and so it this track along with the rest of the score. Enjoy!
