Heavy enough for ya? This week (or month as it has been awhile [surprise!]) we bring you a very special edition of the Shuffled podcast! Special for two reasons. First, it was the inaugural run of our first live broadcast of the show! And second, to ring in the occasion, we did an all metal playlist! There are some heavy licks to be found in this one (which is also extra long just for the occasion). So hit the jump and head bang into the show! \m/

Every other Wednesday, I share a playlist of songs tangentially related to a single game or series. Songs about alien sex for Mass Effect, world leaders for Civilization, and so on. Make requests to @USPodcast on Twitter.
Who like's pinball? I think it's absolutely wizard. Now enjoy this playlist of ska, doo-wop, and absolutely no predictable classic rock.

You can't spell Words With Friends without "feds windrow shirt". And you can't spell Unoriginal Soundtracks without "agnostic dinosaur knurl". So enjoy this podcast of blues, rap, and rock about the popular Scrabble ripoff.

The format shifts for this mini-series of songs about ecology simulator Viva Piñata. Throughout the next week, I'll update this post with bite-sized episodes featuring songs about candy and animals. Think of them as Revels -- you might spit out one, but you'll enjoy the rest.

Attention all Shuffled citizens! Do NOT be alarmed! There is no need to panic! Repeat. There is no need to panic! We have assumed total control of this broadcast. Soon, after you have consumed these electronic minded tracks, you will be assimilated into the new robot order. There is no need for resistance. All dissidents will be dealt with extreme prejudice. We offer only music. And complete servitude. More of the latter really. Click on to be assimilated.

We're staying with strategy games this week, returning to Civilization 5 with its Brave New World expansion. This downloadable content introduces some new leaders and rules that inspire this playlist of metal, jazz, and folk.

If you can forgive its glitchy tutorial and throw yourself into its intimidating, complicated simulation of an intimidating and complicated time, Crusader Kings 2 is a dramatic empire-builder. It's the topic of today's thoroughly un-medieval podcast of rap, punk, and doo wop.

Hello? Is this thing still on? I guess it's been a while, huh?
Well no matter! If your still sticking around on this podcast, then thank you for supporting us! If this is your first time, then sit back, get comfortable, and welcome to Shuffled!

Gone Home shows how powerful mise en scene can be in video games and uses it to tell a classic teenage love story. It is the seed for this playlist of riot grrrl, lady jazz, woman rock, and even some boy music.
