Assalamualaikum/Peace Upon You

Video Games live just finished last Saturday and I'm being slowpoke by writing this blog entry now. Heh. For the first time, this event is being held in Malaysia. Luckily for me, it was at Kuala Lumpur Convention Center (Plenary Hall) which located quite near to my house. At first I thought it was going to be held at the Malaysia Philharmonic Orchestra but I was wrong.

Songs that was played during this event:
Final Fantasy®
Metal Gear Solid®
Kingdom Hearts
Chrono Trigger™
Chrono Cross™
Mega Man™
God of War™
Shadow of the Colossus
Classic Arcade Medley featuring over 20+ games from Pong® to Donkey Kong® including such classics as Dragon's Lair, Tetris, Duck Hunt, Ghosts 'n Goblins, Gauntlet, Punch-Out, OutRun and MANY MORE!

What made this event awesome was there were so many game OSTs that were being played. Not to mention the special appearance of Metal Gear Solid composer Norihiko Hibino from Japan who performed his hit song "Snake Eater" (from Metal Gear Solid 3) with the symphony!

Not to mentioned that Tommy Tollarico is actually a fan of Spider-Man and he have his Spider-Man electric guitar to proves it when he brought it on the stage to perform. I shouted 'Fuck Yeah' out loud when I saw this. I couldn't forgot that they played my all time favorite video games such as Chrono Cross, Chrono Trigger, Mega Man, and Metal Gear Solid.

Thank you, Video Games Live for coming to Malaysia. You guys better perform next year!!
