RTM Radio/The List: Top 25 Video Game Soundtracks

That’s right everybody, RTM Radio is back and better than ever! We’re kicking this new show off with a bang, this 4 hour show contains one song from each of our respective favorite 25 video game soundtracks as well as four songs chosen by guests Darkurai, Missingno, Joe Bush, and Youko giving us a whopping total of 54 songs!

While this 4 hour monstrosity of a show is not at all indicative of how long RTM Radio’s gonna go, we hope to have this format be the way it goes from now on. That includes guest picks every episode, but will most likely only contain 9-10 songs an episode if that. Whether it will be weekly or biweekly to start is still being fully decided. We hope you enjoy!

So without further ado, please enjoy the premiere episode of RTM Radio and this latest episode of the list. A track listing, for your enjoyment!

Episode 56: Read The Manual Episode 66

Confused by the title? So are we. Also, fair warning that Ben talks for a long time about anime and movies. Who’s idea was it to put the new anime season and Ben’s Academy Awards marathon at the same time? Because I want to punch them. In the face. And the dick. Both. At the same time. MAXIMUM PAIN.

Episode 52: Ben is Ready

He’s ready guys! Ben is ready! He is so ready! Ready doesn’t even begin to describe it! A slow couple weeks has gone by for Ben and Doba but that’s not gonna stop them from making a sub par show about it. It’s been awhile since we’ve had just the hosts on the show, so they decided to go ahead and not have a guest this week. Yeah, uh… sorry Moses? OH WELL MAYBE NEXT TIME.

Not to mention we have a special  announcement about this year’s 24 Hour Cast! Tune in to find out about it!

This week’s big topics include the 24 Hour Cast, Supercar, Zach Galifianakis, Steam Powered Giraffe, DayZ Hardcore, ProJared, Game Grumps, Desert Bus for Hope 6, Doctor Who, Ping Pong, Malcolm in the Middle, Mad Men, One Piece, Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask, Professor Layton & The Miracle Mask, Journey, Visual Novels, Project M, Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars, Doba’s new job, Merry Gear Solid 2, and Hostess closing.

Episode 51: [UNSPECIFIED DETROIT EVENT]

We just got back from our vacation in Detroit, Michigan for the second year in a row! What a place for a vacation, eh? We were there once again for [UNSPECIFIED DETROIT EVENT], and this year the amount of SMYN Network peoples joining us DOUBLED. Of course [UNSPECIFIED DETROIT EVENT] went about how you’d expect, nobody recognized us or came to our panel AGAIN (wait we had a panel when was this) because we totally had one (we most certainly did not), so it was obviously a total bummer!

Except it wasn’t! [UNSPECIFIED DETROIT EVENT] was a blast once again! We can probably get a bit of a post about our experience somewhere but we got to meet people like Doug Walker, Linkara, TeamFourStar, and LittleKuriboh, we got to see Steam Powered Giraffe live in concert, and even attended panels lead by two of our fellow Network shows (Show Me Your News! and WTF Pokemon!?)! Not to mention the best part being sharing the best hotel room ever with Darkurai and Peofun1, both of whom have probably been on the show more than any other guests in RTM history. So we figured, let’s have them on again!

This week’s big topics include Youmacon (of course), mash-ups, Steam Powered Giraffe, more Youmacon, Once Upon A Time, Pom Poko, Only Yesterday, Alfred Hitchcock, Nightmare on Elm Street, Red VS Blue, Wreck-It Ralph, more Youmacon, Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask, Professor Layton & The Miracle Mask, Mount & Blade, more Youmacon, Halo 4, and even more god damned Youmacon.

WE LIKED YOUMACON, OKAY?

GUEST APPEARANCES: Darkurai (of Darkurai’s Happy Let’s Play Fun Time) and Peofun1

ENDING SONG: Jordan ~ Buckethead

Oh, and on our way home from Detroit Ben and I started thinking about some other cons we might be able to attend in coming years! We’re honestly looking for ones we wouldn’t have to fly out to, we’d prefer one that would give us an average length road trip.

So if you want RTM to come to your local convention (protip: you don’t) then help us out and shoot us some suggestions. We’d love to hear them.

Episode 50: Still Going…!?

Here, today, is the release of Read The Manual’s 50th episode.

Almost two years of podcasting. Almost two years of being “The Podcast About Stuff!”

… why did nobody stop us when they had the chance?

As Doba and Ben go on to record their 50th episode they find themselves in a situation that requires them not only to face their past selves but also revisit the horror that was Read The Manual Episode 1.

As the two fight very possible odds (there’s not really all that fighting) and face deadly situations (there’s actually none of those, either), join them for what shall be known as a great milestone in absolutely nobody’s minds!

With guest appearances by Charmy (of the SSX Ubercast), Darkurai (of Darkurai’s Happy Let’s Play Funtime), KindKing01, and Youko (of multiple SMYN Network shows), this is an episode we say you’ll never forget, but we’re pretty sure you will almost instantly.

ENDING SONG: Here’s To You ~ Ennio Morricone/Harry Gregson-Williams

Also, next episode takes place at YOUMACON! We’ll be there, will you? If we have fans there besides the ones staying in our room, please tell us! … PLEASE! OH GOD TELL US SOMEBODY LISTENS TO THESE AAAAAAAAAAA
