KVGM “The Last Wave” (8/30/20)

KVGM “The Last Wave” (8/30/20)

Do you hear that sound? Can you feel it? The cool ocean breeze in your hair, the salt on your tongue. It’s the smooth crash of the Last Wave on KVGM with your host, Hammock, bringing you thirty minutes of the best video game jams(z) from all your favorite composers and consoles, each and every week from our beachside studio on sunny Aqua City Island. Sit back, relax, and get ready to catch…the Last Wave.

What’s inside? How about the NBA circa 1997? How about sexy parlor games scored by MUSE himself, Akira Sato? What about 4 on 4 soccer? Hey, there’s even a little murder mystery and water skiing. And it wouldn’t be an episode of the Last Wave without some visual novel nonsense on the PC. And making their Last Wave debut, the very talented ASSY! AND…AND…you guys asked for it (well, some of you) but we now have KVGM “The Last Wave” merch, available here. It’s still summer so give those guns some Vitamin D!

No golf, no mahjong, no fishing…sorry, folks. But we do have flight simulation, soccer, and princesses (on ice!). Plus, all that visual novel smooth action you’ve come to expect from the Last Wave. Hey, thanks to everyone who has supported the Last Wave on this almost two year journey…well, two years in 3 months…but still, I didn’t think we’d make it this far but we’re still cooking with gas. The response has been so positive and without listeners like you, KVGM wouldn’t be in operation. So THANK YOU!

We listened to your pleas, we delivered…Streets of Rage 4. Drink it up. The crew over at DOORS MUSIC ENTERTAINMENT show up not once but TWICE because that’s how they do it. With style. Shinji Hosoe closes this down in the only way Shinji Hosoe knows how to. We’ve got strip mahjong, department store dungeon crawlin’, and BASEBALL! Because we love baseball here at the Last Wave. Just like we love you!

Guess what? Jams, that’s what. Lots of ’em. From airplane simulators to virtual horse racing, from Takeshi Abo to Kenichi Okuma – you know ’em, you love ’em, we got ’em. We’re coming closer and closer to the extra special 100th episode, and here at KVGM, we’ve been reaching out to some very special guests to make that 100th episode even extra special. That’s a whole lot of special.

Golf, tennis, mahjong, scuba diving, sexy puzzles, robot puzzles, poison(?), and, of course, baseball. The fundamentals of smooth video game jams. Well, maybe not poison or robot puzzles…but you get the idea. It’s crazy to think that we’re in August already, the year more than halfway over — although, to be fair, 2020 has felt like 5 years so far. Enjoy summer if you can. Go out to somewhere beautiful and isolated and commune with nature because we can’t commune with each other.
