About the Site

There are many aspects of 765Style.

Namco Deep Dives – I’ll take a certain Namco topic, possibly a soundtrack release, possibly a game, and talk about it until I’m done.

Preservation – Focusing on my own efforts to purchase and preserve (dump) various Namco video game soundtracks from the 1990s that have nearly zero chance of being re-released on streaming platforms (and that’s not “preserving” them, either.)

Releases – From time to time, I’ll release high-resolution personal scans of Namco soundtrack art, magazines, and maybe more.

Podcast – Created before765Style existed, “Lost in Nostalgia” is a limited podcast presented as a mix of old and new recordings from 1997 and 2017, outlining select late 90’s arcade games with a Namco-leaning focus. The podcast is a 25-episode series plus one introductory Day 0 episode.

Each episode may include the following:
*Simulating booting a newly arrived game and discussion of game elements.
*Redemption Roundup: A feature on a ticket-based game and summary of new prizes items that have arrived at the arcade (every 2 episodes).
*Incorporation of stories from the arcade during this time period.
*Time-sensitive arcade industry news.
*Three music specials featuring obscure music from the previous 5 games featured.
*Game ratings: graphics, sound, playability, profitability, 2017 holdup score.
*2017 emulation status: Is it playable, was it dumped, did it get a home version.
Episodes should be listened to in order, 0-25.
