We’re thrilled and honored to have two very special guests for this episode: Kory Caldwell and Keaton Slansky! They’re putting together a video game music documentary called “The Players’ Score” which will feature interviews with some of the biggest names in VGM, like Jake Kaufman and Chris Hülsbeck. They need your help, though! Please visit their Kickstarter Page, take a look at the awesome rewards and personalities they have lined up, and consider making a pledge towards what’s sure to be an AMAZING film!
This episode is a double-team; Kory and Keaton pick the first 5 tracks, and the PTR boys take the other 5. What ensues is a great selection of classic tracks from hugely popular games, and some enthralling discussions about why these titles are so loved. The Players’ Score guys also announce some big surprises concerning their film!
Also, be sure to like the Player’s Score Facebook page, and follow their Twitter account for updates as they occur. We wish them well in their project!
