“Mega Man II” by Johan Agebjörn

posted by on February 13 at 12:33 PM

I was so fucking good at this game when I was a kid. I know it’s nothing new to incorporate Nintendo music into your own track, but this new Johan Agebjörn is still worth checking out if you’re a video game geek.

I especially like the 5:30 mark when it looks like Mega Man is running in place to the music.

Anyone have an 8-bit Nintendo I can borrow for the weekend? Mine’s busted.

The song is from the upcoming Spacer Woman From Mars, to be released on Loeb Feb 25th.

Megan- Download an NES emulator for your PC or MAC. Nestopia is a PC one, but if you're a mac user you can easily find one via google. All most every NES ROM (game) can be found the same way.

Sure it's not as fun using the keyboard for a controls but it works.

If you have a Gamecube/Wii, Xbox, or PS2/PS3, you can get this for your classic Mega Man fix:

Dr. Mario is the man. Fuck a Tetris.

Megan! Have I never shown you my bottom dresser drawer? It's filled with Nintendo! It is like a porn drawer for nerds who have yet to discover girls and masturbation. My 8bit Nintendo is a top loader, just like the SNES. Rad, right? Come pet my cats and take my video games.

Buy a game pad from best buy or somewhere similar for $15, then take the advice @1. You won't be able to tell the difference from a regular nes

Oh, and Quickman's Stage was the most challenging thing I ever encountered until college.
