Play! A Video Game Symphony… Was it Gamer Approved?

Last night, I went and checked out the Grand Rapids Symphony. Normally, I never really attend the Symphony because classical music doesn't appeal to me to much.

PLAY! A Video Game Symphony This Tuesday!

One thing I really enjoy about video games is music. It has evolved so much over theĀ  years from simple "chip tunes" to full fledged orchestra's! Who lives in this world and does not know the theme to Super Mario Bros.? Legend of Zelda? Halo? Not many! It has evolved so much to the point, to where you can hear this great music performed live. Guess what? You have that chance!

Games to Try Before You Die: Outlander (SNES/Genesis)

Mad Max is a pretty sweet movie. It was the first movie the featured a new actor straight from Australia...that actor today is Mel Gibson. The movie was about a dude who was taking revenge on a gang that killed his family, also searching for gas to fuel his car.

Then came a game that 'supposedly' had nothing to do with Mad Max, but all the similarities were there. The game though...was actually pretty kick ass!
