Filmed at BITGen Gamerfest 9 & other events around the country, the video primarily features action from the up close views of Go Pro cameras attached to various instruments, a first person drummer camera, and more!

MAGFest Classic Moment – The Super Spike V’ball Saga – Starring Joe Peacock

tumblr inline n8u45wrZff1qjrtp4 MAGFest Classic Moment   The Super Spike Vball Saga   Starring Joe Peacock

Joe Peacock is an amazing human being. He’s written books on depression. He’s been published on CNN, Huffington Post, and other major media outlets.  He’s worked on the UX design for everything from Scott Pilgrim’s viral campaign to Farmville.  He’s learned some lessons on geek girls. Joe Peacock appeared at MAGFest to display his one of a kind Art of Akira exhibit which feature sketches and original artwork animation cels.

He’s a master of life, and his prowess knows no bounds.

We knew none of this when we started playing Super Spike V’Ball at MAGFest 12 at 3:00 AM. As we suffered against a long time nemesis, into our open door strolled Joe Peacock.

What happens next was edited from the video that was already recording the action:
