Video Games Live
is a bit of a beast to describe. It's a concert, stage show and game demonstration all wrapped into one multimedia event where artists mix rock and symphony instruments as they play your favorite game tunes along to synchronized footage and on-stage acting. Think someone dressed up as a soldier from the Metal Gear Solid
series searching across the stage while
an orchestra plays the alert theme from the games while
a video of gameplay from Metal Gear Solid
projects behind them, and you have an idea of what to expect.
The show has been running for awhile now, and has released two albums (which you can download
) in that time. Now, event host Tommy Tallarico has taken to Kickstarter
in hopes of funding a studio-recorded album as opposed to the previous two live albums. Backer rewards include a personalized message from David Hayter (Solid Snake) and even a tour of Blizzard Entertainment, provided you've got a couple grand to splurge.
