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 37: Oh My God WHY IS THIS SO LONG

Ever wanted to listen to an episode of Read The Manual for a straight 6 hours? Well first off, if that’s something you’ve ever wanted to do you should probably hop in the nearest MRI and get your brain scanned. While you wait you can listen to this episode which fulfills that sick and strangely specific fantasy.

Not only do we have the most guests on any episode ever to create the longest episode to date (and hopefully longest we ever do), but we also bring back an old segment from the past. The Copout makes a return this week as we talk some Persona 3 and 4. WARNING: The last two hours of the show are very spoiler heavy for the Persona games, so listen at your own risk.

This week’s big topics include the Gorillaz, Frank Sinatra, Kamen Rider, Rosario + Vampire, Sacred Blacksmith, Grimme, Pulp Fiction, Legend of the Galactic Heroes, Tom Goes to the Mayor, The House of Small Cubes, Cat Soup and Cat Man, Spice & Wolf, 5 Centimeters Per Second, Darker Than Black, Gunslinger Girl, Angel Beats!, Cyberbully, Left 4 Dead, Borderlands, Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, Okami, Juniper’s Knot, Xenoblade, an evil Sonic ROM hack, Kid Icarus: Uprising, Super Robot Taisen, Star Wars: The Old Republic, and Heavy Rain.

This week’s Copout topic is: Persona 3 and 4

Episode 36: Ben Talks A Lot And Doba Kills Teddie

In this episode you’ll hear a whole bunch of stuff like Ben talking about things for what Doba timed as an hour. Or Doba being angry and hating a character from a game more than he’s really hated anything ever. It’s just another day for Read The Manual. Just another strange… strange day. Oh, and Doba got a new laptop that actually manages to be MORE horrible. Sometimes.
