KVGM “The Last Wave” (8/29/21)

KVGM “The Last Wave” (8/29/21)

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 in sunny Aqua City Island. Sit back, relax, and get ready to catch…the Last Wave.

We’re leaning way into the smooth this week, setting the stage for romance with shopping mall simulation, fake adult simulation, poolhall action, soccer (of course), and street racing, not to mention some visual novel representation for all my visual novelists out there. Enjoy the jams, enjoy the last of summer (it never ends here, fortunately, and unfortunately).

It’s rare that the Last Wave falls on the same day as the Last Wave After Dark but for all you Patreon supporters, you get a double dose of jams as we feature a very special guest on After Dark. But otherwise, it’s business as usual on the Last Wave, as we return to the world of Yakuza, visit some clubs, go fishing, play some golf, race cars, and even answer some hard-hitting questions. Plus, digital monsters are back and better than ever, courtesy of Motoi Sakuraba.
