Yeah, we love talking about music here at Never Nervous, but when there’s an opportunity to write a few words about retro video games I really can’t help myself. That’s why we decided to create a new series of videos where we pit two members of the same band/group against each other as they play a retro video game of their choice from my library. We’re calling this series Game Weenie, which is a stupid play on words (Game Genie, get it?) but the idea is, like I said before a fun excuse to blend our love of games and music.
The first Game Weenie episode features BRENDA bandmates Matt Horne and Brenda Mahler fiercely competing in a match of Mortal Kombat II on the Sega Genesis. Watch it below:
EDITOR’S NOTE: What constitutes a “retro video game”? Well based on my definition and my selection of systems/games, it spans anything from the Atari 2600 and NES to the Sega Genesis and TurboGrafx 16 and drawing the line at N64 and Dreamcast (nothing past that is actually considered retro, right?).
