RPGFan Music of The Year 2016: Part Two
I hope you finished yesterday's podcast, because we already have another for ya...
02.27.17 - 12:00 AM

Music of the Year 2016 rolls on! You're probably reading this on Monday, but where I live, it's still Sunday, and therefore this is "on time." Seriously though, we intentionally posted this a bit later in the evening since we wanted to give our import review of NieR: Automata time to shine all weekend.

And now, with the weekend over (boo), we can bring you another special edition podcast (yay!). For this episode, we welcomed two of our favorite special guests, and as usual, they brought some great music along.

Come back on Monday (okay, later on Monday, smart guy) for the third part of MOTY, which will feature the personal music selections of eleven RPGFan Editors. You won't want to miss it!
