Video Games Live


I've seen the show 3 times.

Houston, Austin, Houston. (Went to the one in Houston this year cause the one in Austin sucked last year... pre-show wise)

This years was amazing.They dedicated 2 hours to just blizzard stuff, and then after the concert, they had a QA panel with some blizzard folks. Telling everyone about their own success story. Then there was a QA panel with VGL staff, which was cool too. Get to hear about Tommy's upbringing. The future shows are definitely something to look forward to.

They added Shadow of the Colussus music, I believe some chrono cross and Kirby. They played megaman and chrono trigger as well, that was a surprise.

I still get goosebumps when I hear LoZ and MGS played live.

The show is awesome, and I really don't understand why there are so many haters on Tommy Tallarico. I think he's awesome.
