#MusicMonday – Sixto Sounds – “Bloody Wolf Rock Arrangement”

Bloody Wolf is one of my all time favorites from the 8-bit and 16-bit eras of gaming. It’s a flawed masterpiece for the Turbo-Grafx 16, and has a banger of a soundtrack. But this wouldn’t be a normal #MusicMonday if I didn’t try to find a remixed version of one of my favorite video game tunes, would it?

Here comes a heavy metal instrumental version of the first stage, courtesy of Sixto Sounds. Enjoy!

WDGRPodcast Episode 106: Cyberpunking The Game Awards

Apple Podcasts | Google Podcasts | Spotify | Stitcher | Tune In | RSS

Drew has played about 10 hours of Cyberpunk 2077 on the Xbox Series X, and has walked away from it mostly optimistic. How does it run on the Series X? Are there any bugs? How does he feel about how the game runs on the other consoles?

Plus, Will tried to watch The Game Awards, but couldn’t finish. Drew watched the entire show. Both had vastly differing opinions. Who was in the right? Let us know!

#MusicMonday – Road 96 – Home Call, by The Toxic Avenger

When The Game Awards aired last week, I expected to have dissenting opinions on wins and losses, and hoped for some awesome game trailers. What I didn’t expect was to hear an amazing song that I’ve been addicted to ever since.

“Home Call,” by The Toxic Avenger, played during the trailer for Road 96, (which also looks like my kind of game), and it’s been on constant rotation ever since. I hope it’s actually in the game too. It’s quite fantastic.

I hope you enjoy!
