I Want Bit Brigade to Rock Out to My Gaming Sessions, Too

on January 12, 2012 3:30 PM

Now this is video game rock.

Have you ever imagined what it’s like to be backed by a full orchestra when you’re playing one of your favorite games? Well, Bit Brigade did the rock ‘n roll equivalent of that at this year’s MAGFest, where the band covered every song from Mega Man 2 as Noah McCarthy played the game in real time. For nearly 45 minutes, the guys rocked out while the Blue Bomber made his way through all eight Robot Masters, starting with Metal Man. Because if you’re going to play through Mega Man 2 like a pro, you’ve gotta start out with Metal Blade. That’s just common sense.

The full video is embedded for you after the jump, so go ahead: check it out and be amazed by how every boss fight takes 10 seconds. Or not. Metal Blade, remember?
