KVGM “The Last Wave” (1/2/22)

KVGM “The Last Wave” (1/2/22)

 
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.

Welcome to 2022 – the future. Is it bright? Doubtful…but the jams keep things light and airy. Because you know what they say…ignorance is bliss. And that has never been more true than here on the Last Wave. This week, we’ve got more mahjong, more Lupin the Third, more billiards, and of course, X68000 visual novel representation.

If you celebrated Christmas over the weekend, I hope it was a memorable one. If you didn’t, I hope the weekend was just as memorable. It was a very quiet, relaxing Christmas here on the coast, with no family, just a few friends and Mother Nature. But of course, the jams don’t stop. They keep coming,

It’s the week before Christmas so the hype is in the air and everywhere you go, Christmas music is playing. But on the Last Wave, we believe that smooth, non-Christmas video game music is the best way to go all year long. Whether it’s from high school baseball games on the PS1, visual novels about sexy wives and sexy cruise ship attendees, customizing race tracks, or simulating a fish tank on your Sega Saturn. Plus, Wave Race 64, which surprisingly hasn’t been played on the show yet.

Happy Halloween! While we’re not getting too spooky onto today’s episode, we are handing out candy in the form of tasty jams. I mean, I guess technically…we have some scary tracks from a murder mystery game and Deadly Skies. Plus, you know…digital monsters. Ace Attacker. Collar X Malice. And then some bowling action and off-road racing to tie the room together.
