The VGM Megacast is a podcast dedicated to playing only the best video game covers. Started by Tim of the NES cover band Year 200X, this podcast was created as a way to promote the video game cover scene. While podcasts already exist that play video game remixes and video game-inspired original music (see GameWave Podcast), Tim decided to create this cast in order to round out the spectrum of video game music and include the cover scene.
The video game covers you will hear on the podcast vary in style, including (but not limited to) metal, rock, chiptune, nintendocore, and 8-bit.
With Tony from Year 200X as a co-host, and containing weekly video game news, website of the week, and other regular features, the VGM Megacast is your source for all things VGM.
