Is Christmas really over already? I can’t believe things went so quickly. I’m not really much for New Year’s Eve since I don’t drink, but I’m still looking forward to seeing some friends that night. I hope all of you are enjoying your time off from work/school. Let’s hope you haven’t done a single stressful thing all week, and that the rest continues until next! See you in a few, short hours.
There have been many times in the past where I’ve talked about Video Games Live. I’ve done features on the show itself, discussions with Tommy Tallarico and event photo/video libraries of the events. Video Games Live has been a very big part of my adventures with GoNintendo. Some of you may even be GoNintendo readers long enough to know how we ended up going to our first show. Man, that’s a story in and of itself! Needless to say, over the years we’ve become big fans of the show itself as well as the people that put it together.
Tomorrow for my regular Wednesday night off, I’ll be heading out to yet another Video Games Live. We’ve driven to a bunch of states to see the show, but tomorrow the event is taking place less than an hour from the warehouse! It’s so nice to have Video Games Live back in the neighborhood. I’ll get to hear great music and performances, check out some fantastic visuals and get to catch up with old friends. The best part is, we’ll have new features to check out as well!
Video Games Live isn’t a new show, but co-creator Tommy Tallarico continues to put in new content and features. Tomorrow night we’ll get to hear music from games added to the show in the last few months, and we’ll also be treated to special performances by Brentalfloss and Castlevania composer Kinuyo Yamashita. I am absolutely chomping at the bit to hear that Castlevania music! There’s always something new and exciting at Video Games Live, no matter how many times I’ve seen the show.
I really hope you guys have had the chance to check out one of the many Video Games Live events over the years. If you appreciate gaming in any way, you really should put aside some time to attend. Tickets are always cheap, and the level of interaction you get with the show is top-notch. Hearing your favorite games played with big orchestras is such a treat, and the surprises along the way are the icing on the cake.
There’s still some tickets left for tomorrow’s show! If you live in or around the NJ area, you really should come and check it out. We’ll be more than happy to say hi if you’re there as well!
