It has been WAY too long since the last Nerdy Tunes Thursday (NTT) but we’re gonna try & make it a regular thing again. As many of you know, we’re now in 2017. If you still haven’t flipped you calendar over from December, I’ll give you a minute.A lot happened in 2016 aka The-year-who-must-not-be-named’ which had everyone still recovering from celebrity deaths, crazed politicians and dank memes til the very last week of December. Despite that, 2016 was a pretty good year in gaming. We were briefly introduced to Nintendo’s next piece of hardware debuting in 2017, we met up with Sam and learned what he was up to in Uncharted 4, and a handful of games were delayed from their original Fall dates…again. If you have not heard of Mega Ran, here is a quick bio:
Raheem Jarbo, also known by his stage names Mega Ran and Random, is an American underground rapper, chiptune DJ, and record producer. He is mainly associated with the genre known as nerdcore. In February 2015, he changed his name, removing Random from any releases.
The reason I bring him up is because he released “The year in Gaming 2016”, a snapshot of the games industry last year. I’ll post a link to the Youtube video below, & if you want to support him and pick up some of his music(MP3/WAV,pay what you want)check out his patreon!
If you’d like to get to know him better, watch his visit to the GameOverGreggy show:
