126 – Maxis is Dead

In an astoundingly poor decision, EA chiefs opted to not destroy the Maxis building with hurricane, earthquake, giant lizard, alien invasion, or meteor strike.

Our Intro and Outro music is by Ben Landis off his album Adventures in Pixels – “Credits Music for an 8 Bit RPG” (Twitter @thebenlandis)

Our interlude track was “Optimism Prime (Solt + Peppor’s theme)” by the World is Square
