Brazilero turns a Genesis into a metal band


megadriver.jpg You might remember some buzz back in April about a Sega Genesis that was modded into a guitar on Ebay. Twenty six year old Nino aka Megadriver has launched a site for his new band (consisting of all family members including a newborn baby) with a showcase has videos and mp3s of his performances. Here's really good, and in fatty of an 8 meg flash video he's on stage rocking out to a sea of gamers with the dwarf from Golden Axe on bass, Sonic playing second fiddle as backup. I wasn't able to confirm if this is the same person or a copycat, but one thing is for certain - there is a man out there with a Sega guitar and can rock out 16-bit heavy metal jams like no other. And I mean that literally - who the hell do you know that owns a console/guitar? A know a few guys with Xbox360/paperweights* but it's not as glamorous. You can check out his gigs, posters, fan art, and 80+ mp3s of Metal Altered Beast, Metal Contra, Metal... well, you get the picture. Go pump a DoubleViking Fingers over at MegaDriver.com.br. Also peep the root story on Kotaku segagenesitar.jpg * as in overheaded burned out xbox 360's, not working consoles with a dismal library of games I'm not envious of not owning. Although the latter is debatable. More videos of the MegaDriver in action: And some other guys :)
