Bit Brigade Rocks Out with Mega Man 2

Caution: Video contains NSFW language

What could be better than kicking back and playing Mega Man 2, one of the greatest video games of all time? I won't pretend there aren't a lot of possibilities, but for the sake of this article the one thing better is having a live rock band provide the soundtrack while you play!

And that's just what the band Bit Brigade did at Magfest this past weekend. Wicked chords and obscene harmonics wailed to the crowd as Mega Man blasted through the robot hordes. You can watch the entire performance in the video above.

I would have loved to been at Magfest to witness this! Though honestly, this is a pretty good representation of how playing Mega Man always made me feel!

Kinuyo Yamashita of Mega Man X3 Pariticipating in VGL

She is probably best known by game music fans for scoring Castlevania as her debut work, but Kinuyo Yamashita is also behind the music in the SNES version of Mega Man X3. What's more, she will be joining this Saturday's performance of Video Games Live this Saturday at the Tilles Center Concert Hall in Greenvale, New York. According to the press release, she will definitely be involved in the performance of Castlevania music, but it's uncertain if she will be performing anything Mega Man related. However, it is mentioned there will be new Mega Man pieces in the show nevertheless. Plus, Yamashita will be available after the show for a meet-and-greet, so you could always get something signed if you're a big fan!

If you're attending the show, let us know how it goes! You can also buy tickets here.
