Mega Man celebrate 8-bit while calling it quits

“It was so limited, they had to write it tight,” Woodard said.
“These [songs] aren’t just playing major chord and major harmonies, they’re playing modulations, changing the keys, doing some Music Theory III and IV shit,” Cáceres added.
For those reasons and more, the Mega men still consider the music of Mega Man among the most memorable music they’ve heard.
With the album release behind them, Grasshopper will return to writing new material and XRY will leave for tour. Naturally, the members of Mega Man will continue to game — just don’t expect them to be relying on high-def graphics or in-level adjustable difficulty. “That’s the [video game] world we live in now,” Woodard said. “Everybody’s a goddamn winner.” •
