In the single largest interview gathering in NGI history, Kyle and Larry are joined by four-fifths of the incredible Mega Man cover band, THE MEGAS. Greg Schneider unfortunately wasn’t able to attend, but Josh Breeding, Eric von Doymi, Mike Levinson, and Brian DiDomenico all join in for nearly two hours to discuss their upcoming Mega Man 3-inspired album release, the influence of Mega Man on their lives, what other game series they’d like to take a stab at (hint: it has to do with horror movie monsters ), and field some questions from the chatroom!
On this all-vocal special, Kyle and Larry call out the vocal haters and lament the lack of Slider, while Kyle gets extremely excited about getting to attend Video Games Live in Los Angeles at the Nokia Theater on June 8th (say hi if you’re there! ) They check out awesome vocal tunes from Jonathan Underdown, Shachou, LuIzA, MintJam, Takenobu Mitsuyoshi, and of course, The Megas!
Slider may not have been able to have been on the show, but she did create a tribute sketch for The Megas: Markered Neenjah!
