The beginning of the year usually marks an atypical sort of anniversary for me - yet another year when I didn't make it to MAGFest. The Music and Games festival just celebrated its tenth year running, and once again, I was a total loser and didn't go. Every year, whether through financial constraints, previously-made plans, or simple work-related obligations, I find myself unable to attend. While I've usually got plenty of reasons to kick myself, this year in particular sounds like it was incredible year to attend, with a ton of game bands and booths, culminating in a finale performed by none other than Nobuo Uematsu (longtime composer for the Final Fantasy series) and his own rock band, the Earthbound Papas.

After the jump below, I've compiled some of the precious YouTube footage of this year's celebration of gaming and gaming music. Hopefully, next year, I'll be able to speak a little bit more personally about the proceedings.


Bit Brigade

Descendants of Erdrick

Earthbound Papas

Metroid Metal

The OneUps (the whole set!)

Jake "virt" Kaufman

The Minibosses


The Revengineers

There's lots more out there aside from just this. Look it up, why don't you!!
