Super Gamer Episode 67 – Tommy Tallarico

Video Games Live kicked off its 14-show, 12-city Canadian tour in Winnipeg, MB on Monday. At the show, I got a chance to speak to VGL creator and performer (and industry icon) Tommy Tallarico. Have a listen, and find out why Mr. Tallarico thinks Beethoven would be a video game composer if he were alive today.

The video includes: the orchestra, led by Bryan Deans, playing Metal Gear Solid; Jason Paige singing the Pokemon theme song (with Tommy Tallarico on guitar); Winnipeg’s own SuperFX playing Halo; and … a box?

(By the way, I can’t seem to sing the Pokemon theme song without switching to the Transformers movie theme. “I know it’s my destiny. Pokemon! Oh, you’re my best friend — FROM THE EVIL UNICROOOON!”)

FanQuest Day 2: Lazy Nerd 204

I love chiptunes. Who doesn’t love chiptunes? It brings me so much happiness to hear those sounds, and it makes me want to dance!

Well here’s my talk with Lazy Nerd 204, a chiptune artist and gamedev based in Winnipeg. One of his songs, Sup Day (I Spelled Sunday Wrong), is featured in the episode. I love it, I’m sure you will too!

Warriors, scholarly cats, merchant llamas, cyborgs, taxi hamsters, and ghosts are just some of what make up Towards the Pantheon, an adventure-rpg-survival horror under development by Connor O.R.T. Linning and his crack team.

The game looks great and the music is boss — in fact, we’ve got some boss music for you in the episode!

Tuuuuuune iiiiiiiiin.
