Rhythm Encounter 7 – Don’t Tease the Octopus!

Yeeeeowch! I hope you’ve relaxed and recovered from Summer Chill, because Episode 7 of Rhythm Encounter is anything but chill. We’ve got a great spread of tracks, from SNES favorites to PlayStation legends and so much more. The tables have turned as Random Encounter host Robert Steinman joins us as a guest to discuss his picks—and before you ask, yes, he did select a track from Dark Souls. Prepare yourselves for the onslaught!

As always, we welcome any feedback you may have, including topic suggestions, track requests, or ideas for how we can improve. (We also love fanmail! Hint hint.)
