Welcome to Original Soundchat, where video game music is a work of art! In this new weekly show, hosts Joe DeVader and Peter Spezia are talking about their favorite game soundtracks. This involves taking a deep dive into the creation and history behind those classic OSTs, while highlighting some key tracks along the way. Join them as they shine a light on the often-forgotten composers that make our games sound great, and prove that game music has come a long way from the days of so-called “beeps and boops.”
