Those who know me know that I love the winter. I’ve always said it’s far easier to throw on a warm jacket/sweater/blanket and be comfortable than it is to… suffer without recourse in the summertime heat. The scenery is peaceful, and (provided you aren’t driving through superstorms with frozen de-icer fluid after MAGFest) pleasant to experience. Most importantly, the chill inspires some great game music! Listen onward, intrepid RPGFanner, for the latest and iciest Rhythm Encounter yet. Maybe it’ll make you forget that we’re still finishing up Music of the Year!
I’ve got Etrian Odyssey—or at least series composer Yuzo Koshiro—on the brain, Caitlin rebels with a few unconventional picks, and Mike serves up some classic snowy tunes to round things out. As always, we also listen to some cool tracks from albums recently reviewed on RPGFan.
Note: We had to re-number our episodes several years after publishing. This was originally Episode 20, as reflected in the audio. Don’t worry, you’re not missing anything!
