Video Games Live

Video Games Live was an awesome show! Cosplay and geekery everywhere! It was great to geek out with other gamers in real life for once. Since the beginning of the show, all I could think about was cross stitching the logo. It was actually making me a little bit crazy. I see pixels and must stitch them.

For those not in the know, VGL is a concert wherein an orchestra, choir and Tommy Tallarico play video game music against the back drop of game footage. There is actually quite a bit of audience participation which adds to the fun. They played a lot of great music from Assassin's Creed II, Shadow of the Collosus, Castlevania, Final Fantasy VII and God of War. There was definitely not enough Zelda! Super Mario Galaxy would be an obvious choice but nope! They did do some Chrono Trigger but didn't use visuals for it. I'm honestly not complaining; I did love it. They actually have a huge repertoire and obviously can not play everything. I will definitely go again to see what else they have arranged. My favourite track of the night would have to be Assassin's Creed II where they projected a cutscene on screen and played along live.
It was a great show and I recommend it to anyone who likes games or likes music in general. My wishlist for next time would be to hear more Zelda, Kingdom Hearts, Okami, Final Fantasy X and XII, Mass Effect, Super Mario Galaxy and Donkey Kong Country 2 (I can dream). ♥

Seeing as how you are into Video Game Music, you likely already know about the site, but Overclocked Remix is worth a mention for anyone who is a fan.

ROFL. That would be a great addition to your blog's tag line :) Sort of says it all, doesn't it?
