Rhythm Encounter 92 – Blast Processing: SEGA Genesis RPGs

Rhythm Encounter 092 Blast Processing SEGA Genesis RPGs

Last month, we celebrated the music of the SNES with The Road SNES Traveled (episode 89), and today we turn our ears to Nintendo’s then-competition, the SEGA Genesis! While SEGA’s 16-bit console didn’t have the sheer number of RPGs found on the SNES, there are plenty of gems to be found in the likes of Phantasy Star, Shining Force, and more. Come listen to some great music that Nintendidn’t have.

Featuring: Mike Salbato, Wes Iliff, Patrick Gann; Edited by Jono Logan
