Viral Video: Metal Guitar Tribute to the History of Video Games

Check out this video of a talented YouTube dude — FamilyJules7x — playing a mighty fine (and decidedly epic) metal tribute to the history of video games.

FamilyJules7x posted a lot of info with the clip, including:

"I made this during the same week as my last year of college finals and during hell weeks for numerous other projects, rendering me very little time to work on it.

The time restraint gave me one day for arranging, one day for drum programming, one day for all the mixing and mastering and one day to edit this beast of a video. This is because recording the audio took four days.

"Things didn't go to plan; namely, I wish I had had more time to practice with the green screen and make sure all the shots would work with it — and I wish I had more time to mix and master."
