One of the two new Yale, MA songs (“Ratty Allen”) is on the latest Allston Pudding mixtape. There are ACTUAL hard copies that are ACTUAL cassettes.

We are super proud to announce the release of our September 2014 Localz Only Mixtape. We’ve been putting out these mixes for years (you can still access most of them here) but this one is extra special because we actually put it out on tape! We partnered with Teenareena Records (AKA our new best friends), to produce a very limited amount of cassettes which you can pick up for FREE at two excellent locations, Vivant Vintage in Allston and Deep Thoughts in Jamaica Plain (they’ll be in there in the afternoon on 9/5). With this partnership, we’re hoping to can spread the glory of Boston music to new ears.
This is the first of many tapes coming at you, and if you can’t tell, we’re really excited about it. A special thanks to all the bands, Teenareena Records, Vivant Vintage, Deep Thoughts, Sharon, Nicole, the AP staff, and of course, all you readers out there. We couldn’t be doing this without you.
You can stream or download the mix here and you can snag a physical copy in Allston and JP.

I don’t live in Boston anymore so someone get me a copy.

The look is influenced most obviously by sci-fi games of the era like Metroid and Life Force. But Abadox is also caught up in the psychosexual aesthetic of H.R. Giger, the surrealist whose merging of the technological and the organic won Alien an Oscar for visual effects. These inspirations all had a hand in making Natsume’s 1989 shooting game impressively stomach-churning for a game made on such limited technology.

Pinball Land, Nintendo, 1989
Pinball Land is a weird ass pinball/RPG hybrid I’ve been curiously obsessed with for years but had never played through. Like most NES RPGs, it is a GRIND. Also, there’s no save function, you have to play through in one sitting so basically, you have to play for an hour racking up enough gold to be able to upgrade your flippers and add stoppers or you won’t have a chance against the later bosses.

I don’t usually do title screens but this looked awesome and I couldn’t help myself.

Bahamut Senki (Sega - Mega Drive - 1991) 
Japan-only strategy RPG

if somebody made a console loaded with a super sweet selection of all the rad Japan-only stuff I never got to play from the 8-bit era through, say, the 64
I would buy the hell out of that console
(I know I could probably play all these on the laptop or the desktop but the idea is to not be on the laptop or the desktop for, like, an hour)
