Musicast 09: Cho Ren Sha 68k




What you've never heard of it? Yeah I know. Well here's your chance to be cool once again, like you were after you snorted that pepper off of your desk in Jr. High. Yes that's right, after listening to this you'll command a new respect among your pears.

Cho ren Sha 68k was a game that was made for the "Sharp 68K" gaming system that was only released in Japan. How would I know about this game at all you ask? Well they went through the trouble of porting it to windows! Here's your chance to be cool again.

CLICK HERE to download the full game. Believe me you won't regret it. As you can see in the image above this is a classic space shooter, also called a "Shoot 'em up", or that other stupid phrase people like to us that I won't use.

Anyway listen up.

Is the game industry ready for the next generation of consoles? Are we the gamers ready to buy a new generation of consoles? Are we all just a bunch of monkeys acting out our instinctual behavior? Tune in to find out what we think about it. We go pretty far down the rabbit hole.

Here's a list of some of the things we talked about:

Musicast 08: U.N. Squadron


Come and join us in celebrating 4th of July with Jets and the music from what is regarded as one of the best side scrolling shooters of all time, U.N. Squadron (Area 88 in Japan). The music comes from what I consider a golden age of Capcom games with memorable soundtracks that have stuck with an entire generation of gamers. U.N. Squadron may be lesser known but is just as good as they come. Enjoy!
