VGM Fight Club Episode 4x02 Konami vs Capcom
Fresh off his victory against Kungfu Carlito, Alex is immediately challenged by none other then the 3x VGM Fight Club Champion, Bedroth!!! Has Bedroth gone Hogan (turned Heel) on us? Nope. It was just such an awesome match between Alex and Carlito he couldn't help but challenge the winner with a title shot on the line. The topic? One suggested by none other then Bedroth himself, Konami vs Capcom. So Rds. 1-2 will have Alex picking Konami tracks and Bedroth picking Capcom. Rds. 3-4 will see them switching the order up. Rd. 5 is a free for all as long as the track comes from a Konami or Capcom game. Alex's tracks are first each round followed by Bedroth's.

VGM Fight Club 4x01 Super Capcom Cage Fight II
We are back for season 4 of the VGM Fight Club and right off the bat we have a huge grudge match between Kungfu Carlito and Alex "The Messenger" Messenger. Alex has an axe to grind with Carlito for putting John "J Gangsta" Harrington over the last time Alex faced him. Carlito wants another shot at title. So what better way for this match to be decided then in a Capcom Cage Fight!!!! The rules for this particular fight are they are not allowed to use any tracks from the 8bit and 16bit era of Capcom games. That's right. Nothing from the NES, SNES, or Sega Genesis era. Alex's tracks are first, Carlito's are second.

While playing the music (and watching the Video Game Awards) we discuss our next couple of episodes, how when one's opinion is forced upon others it ruins a good thing for all, the Game Awards themselves, who we think has the biggest breast in anime, and my woes with Door Dash.  1.

VGM Fight Club 2x02 Playstation Pit Fight
Episode two sees the winner of our first ever Royal Rumble Pernell (Diamond Dallas Purenell aka DDP) go up against the VGM Fight Club Champion John "JGangsta" Harrington in a match of my own diabolical mindset, The Playstation Pit Fight. The rules are simple: All tracks must be from games on the Playstation line (PSX, PS2, PS3, PSP, PS4, PS VITA, PS5) and cannot be arcade ports. They can be imports, but must of originated on any of Sony's consoles. And a sudden betrayal occurs. Someone in the Inner Circle has betrayed Le Champione.....BUT WHO?????? (It's not Jesse). John won the dice roll and has opted to have his tracks play first each round Round 1 Ryoshima Coast- Hiroshi Yamaguchi (Okami) Ex-Island- Norio Hanzawa (Stretch Panic) Round 2 SOLO- Yosuke Kinoshita (Dynasty Warriors 8) Fanatically- Hiroshi Fujioka (Growlanser II) Round 3 Formless Like Water- Akitaka Tohyama (Tekken 5) Don't Be Defeated By A Friend- Falcom Sound Team (Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel) Round 4 KGB vs Evil Personified- Harry Gregson-Williams & Norihiko Hibino (Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater) Corona Jumper- Tsuyoshi Sekito (Brave Fencer Musashi) Round 5 The Days When Mother Was There- Shoji Meguro (Persona 5) An Illusion of The Brainstem- Motoi Sakuraba (Valkyrie Profile) Sudden Death The Legendary Theme- COIL (Gitaroo Man) The Beast- Isao Kasai, Kenji Tani, Makoto Suehiro, Satoshi Iwasaki (Wizardy: Tale Of The Forsaken Land)

On this 21st Day of November, I gather various members of the VGM Podcast community to do battle for the VGM Fight Club Championship. The current champ Bedroth has had a few weeks of rest, but now he must defend his title against two heavyweights of the VGM Podcast community.

However he's not the only dog in this fight. The Messenger himself arrives on the scene after redeeming himself in a brutal 4-1 match against The Last Rican. He promises to bring the title home to his soon to be wife as an early wedding gift.  Who will claim victory!?!?!? YOU DECIDE!!! Also, a special Guest Apperance......
