Episode 1: The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time

LISTEN TO THE FULL SHOW (sans music) HERE!

Hey everyone! Welcome to LAG Radio, your weekly source of video game appreciation, chiptune idolatry, DIY art endeavors, and so much more.

My goal with this program is to discuss video games from across the ages in depth, bringing on guests to help delve into video games beyond a simple review. We’ll talk the development, theory, and intent of games, both classic and relatively recent, critically-acclaimed titles and relatively unknown ones as well. I want to get you folks involved in this process too, so I’ll be inviting you all to play through a game the week prior to the show and discus it on our Facebook page to get your own take on the title.

For our debut episode, we covered none other than the legendary (ha-ha!) N64 masterpiece, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. I was joined live by Alex and Brandon (DJ names pending) to discuss how the game came to be, its importance to Nintendo and the N64 as a whole, the gameplay’s high and low points, what the deal was with the plot of the game, and finally, an analysis of how the music was used to heighten the entire experience. I’ll be uploading the discussion portion of the show at a later date, but for now, you can check out the full playlist of the music we shared right below.

Thanks so much for tuning in, and I look forward to sharing new episodes and music with you every week! Make sure to follow us on social media too. You can access the Facebook by clicking anywhere on this sentence. And you can follow me on Instagram by tapping on this conveniently linked sentence. Either way, catch you again next week for a brand new episode, a new giveaway, and a new heaping helping of fantastic video game tunes.
