My greatest MAGFest 11 moment

"Castlevania-ception"

This was my first MAGFest, and damn, it did not disappoint. So much hotness everywhere. For most people, it would be impossible to narrow down the greatest moment of the show.

For me, it was simple.

I'm at the main concert stage listening to Bit Brigade, the band that deftly fuses videogame covers with live speedrunning, as the group performed Castlevania. I'm there with my good friend Patrick Kulikowski, writer for Pixelitis and VGdrum hero, when Pat taps me on the shoulder and tells me to look to our right.

Standing right next to us is Kinuyo Yamashita, the original composer for Castlevania.

I am standing immediately next to the composer of a game for which the soundtrack is currently being performed on stage by a live band while another dude is playing the game whose soundtrack is currently being performed by the band as the original composer of said game's soundtrack is watching the game and its music being played live and...

BOOM.
