Calibrating Gaming Soundscapes

This week, Brad leads Justin and Brian along in a rousing discussion of our favorite and not-so-favorite video game music. They try and figure out what exactly makes a soundtrack memorable/nostalgic, what they dislike in gaming soundtracks, and Justin tries to figure out how exactly to say Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson's name correctly.

On this episode Josh & Justin sat down to chat with Ray Narvaez Jr., formerly of Rooster Teeth and Achievement Hunter. They chatted with Ray about his decision to leave Rooster Teeth and what the future holds for him.

Prior to that, in the first 30 minutes of the show, our team talked Star Wars Celebration, including The Force Awakens, Rogue One, Rebels, Battlefront, and much more. There's also a little bit of discussion about Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice's first trailer, if you're looking for some Batman sandwiched between your Star Wars and Ray.
