Rock out with Bethesda at their Wolfenstein PAX East party

Last year Bethesda threw a really killer fan event based around Elder Scrolls Online at PAX East. It was seriously cool. It was like in a castle, and you were given a sack of fake golden coins to trade for stuff, and that's a...

Critical Hit and The Earthbound Papas co-headline Orlando Nerd Fest 2014
by Dale North

Jason Hayes' (World of Warcraft) band, Critical Hit, and Nobuo Uematsu's (Final Fantasy series) band, The Earthbound Papas, will tag team, co-headlining upcoming Orlando Nerd Fest 2014, set for August 9 in Orlando, Florida. 

Critical Hit will perform at 10 p.m., bringing their arrangements of songs from Skyrim, Mario, The Legend of Zelda, Halo, Metal Gear Solid, Pokemon, World of Warcraft, Tetris, and more to Stage A. The Earthbound Papas will follow with their set of classic rock performances of popular Final Fantasy tunes. That's a lot of awesome for one stage. Maybe too much!

As a fellow fan of Nobuo Uematsu and his timeless scores, I am honored to co-headline our first Orlando Nerd Fest with his high profile band The Earthbound Papas,” said Jason Hayes. “We cannot wait to share what we’ve been working on with gaming enthusiasts and music fans attending the show.” 

Destructoid has the exclusive on Critical Hit's third music video, an arrangement of the Tetris theme. Watch on as they rock out at night on top of a skyscraper, lit only by spotlights.

You can find more on the band, as well as links to their digital and physical albums on the Critical Hit official website.

I danced at GDC today in front of God and country playing Bounden

I danced in the park today. While everyone else was in meeting rooms, I did turns and pirouettes in Yerba Buena Gardens as the sun beamed down and cherry blossoms fluttered by in the soft spring breeze. This all may sound lovely, but I looked like a dork out there in front of everyone. But I'm not ashamed because it was a lot of fun.
