The most highly anticipated Mega Man 3 inspired concept album of the year has arrived and it is impressive.
History Repeating: Red is the second of a two part album adapting the story and music of Mega Man 3 into a collection of rock anthems. Continuing where History Repeating: Blue left off, this installment explores the brand new perspectives of four more Robot Masters, Gamma, and Break Man, as well as continuing explore the Blue Bomber’s story arc.
More than being excellent musicians, The Megas are also great storytellers. I haven’t cared this much about soulless machines since I watched Wall-E, Iron Giant, and Short Circuit 2 back to back to back. Each bot has such strong emotions driving their actions.
Gemini Man is so paranoid that someone is out to kill him that he hires his double as a private investigator to watch his back. Needle Man hates himself because his design won’t allow him to get close to anyone without hurting them, to the point where is may do something rash. Shadow Man is terrified and helpless as he loses his original personality and all he once was to Dr. Wily’s reprogramming. And
Break Proto Man’s songs are heartbreaking. Envy. Rage. Relief. Peace. So many feels!
History Repeating: Red is a thoroughly satisfying conclusion to the journey we began with History Repeating: Blue. At only $10, this album is well worth every zenny. It’s available on Bandcamp and on The Megas official site.
We’ve added two new sketches to our gallery. Player-2 palette swaps of Gary and Gen.
Now your little brother can pick the same character as you without things getting confusing. He still has to use the mangled MadCatz controller though.
Finally Team Shot Glasses has come back to The Nefarium.
Our very opinionated contributor Nick (also known as the GnomeGnerd) has made no secret of his
disstratusfaction dissatisfaction with the WWE as of late. He’s gathered our smartest and snarkiest smarks together in his spacious lair to discuss the granddaddy of ’em all, WrestleMania 30, the disappearance of CM Punk, the Yes! Movement, and the general downward spiral of the biggest company in Sports Entertainment.
Special thanks for Paul and
Brian Bobby for joining us.
