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 27: Ben Considers A Guy Fawkes Solution

In the midst of Minecraft drama and moral dilemmas within the cubic world of creative stuff, Ben considers remembering the 5th of November to such accuracy that things will probably be blown up sometime in the near future. He cares not for your pleas or the fact that innocents may also be lost, he sees red and only thinks of revenge at this point…

Ben is basically V but crazier. And not a hero. That’s what we’re trying to say here.

Episode 26: We Talk About Youmacon For Way Too Fucking Long

Ben and Doba just got back from Detroit, Michigan where they were visiting fellow SMYNjas at Youmacon 2011! They came back with a lot of stories and not much money. They tell you about cosplayers and food stories and getting beaten by Super in Smash Bros. It was a lot of fun and they plan on attending again in 2012. Though they might have gone a tad overboard on the storytelling…

Season 2 of Read The Manual starts here! It starts with a rather… explosive episode.

This week’s big topics include new sections for season two, our Youmacon experience, Team Teamwork, Desert Bus for Hope 5, Punch Drunk Love, Time & Eric: Awesome Show Great Job, Ben’s Minecraft troubles, Ultimate Marvel VS Capcom 3, Sonic Generations, Doba blew up, Skyrim, Uncharted, and PETA’s Tanooki crap.
