Nintendo created the GameCube to compete directly with Microsoft’s Xbox and Sony’s powerhouse PlayStation 2. It featured faster load times due to a mini-DVD game format, a fantastic selection of Nintendo first-party titles, and and adorably compact cube-like exterior. On today’s podcast, Ed is joined by Alex Messenger, host of “A VGM Journey,” to explore some of the lesser-known GameCube exclusive soundtracks. There are some real hidden gems in here, so get those ears ready!
