If you grew up in North America in the 80’s, you probably have a few stories about the NES. Even if you didn’t own one, chances are a friend did. Cam Chiles, drummer/arranger in the awesome VGM band The Mad Gear wanted to share a few of his own NES stories on the show. Ed had quite a few stories too, so they got together and made an awesome podcast about ’em! Imagine yourself in your childhood bedroom as you kick back and listen to some great NES soundtracks and relate to some very heartfelt and humorous tales of video games past.
A huge thank you to Indira J (The Misadventures of Buddy and Friend, Sacrimony) for the amazing VGMbassy artwork and design, and to Trevin Hughes (aka chiptune composer Jredd) for the podcast theme song!
