Today's show is all about video game music, with some smattering of God of War: Ascension and Soul Sacrifice talk. We brought in musician Az Samad who was the featured guitar soloist for the Distant Worlds concert in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, as well as SGCafe's Sim Cheng Kai. Together, we dissect what makes the old pieces great while also bringing you a live audio performance or two.
