Episode 199: Ash is His Mom
« on: March 04, 2016, 05:54:19 PM »

Time for some more Pokémon chat, along with a mini interview.

Welcome to Connectivity 199.

On this episode, Nick, Adam and Neal kick things off with some discussion on Zelda: Twilight Princess HD, along with some other Zelda chatter. After that, Adam brings in some Nontendo discussion detailing his recent purchase of a PS4 and feeling unsure of what he should be playing. Nick chimes in at the end with some brief thoughts on the UltraHDMI mod for the Nintendo 64. (Video Overview of the UltraHDMI)

After the intro segment, we head into a small interview with Andrew Vargas, who is trying to recreate accurate replacement parts for the Nintendo 64 analog stick. His recent Kickstarter has already been funded, so take a listen to learn a bit more about the project.

For the main topic, we continue with the Pokémon theme from the last episode to talk about the Pokémon anime.

The musical selections on this episode include, Throwback Galaxy from Super Mario Galaxy. Along with a couple of tracks from the original Pokémon anime.

I'd forgotten how incredible the music from the anime is, the end song I'm seeing referred to as "A Meeting and Parting" if anyone was wondering.

It really is. I have the albums covering all the OST music up until Diamond/Pearl. I didn't know what the track names were though.

There's some great music from the earlier seasons, some of which was probably cut from the 4Kids dub, or was just less notiable. There's a lot of great versions of songs from the games.

When it comes to the anime OST, "Tears After Cloudy Weather" has to come up.  Still get feels from that one.

Another favorite of mine:  "Who Is Stronger?"  You know that phrase made famous by The Dark Knight, "Some people just want to watch the world burn?"  This is that in musical form.

As for adaptations on game themes, I'll skip to Route 26-28 from Gold & Silver.  The Bike is also great.  There's so many great adaptations on this show!
