Episode 131: Collaborations

This week, the guys take a look at some of the most successful collaborations in all of video game music! The idea of collaboration is obviously something that is very near and dear to Karl & Will's heart, so this episode is a special one. The guys discuss not just the tracks themselves, but the larger context of the game, and how the composers worked together to achieve something great. Also, another installment of Marty's Corner!
