Video Games Live: Level 2 on CD, DVD and Blu-ray

Popular videogame concert series Video Games Live is best seen...well, live, but if you can't make it to a show, this upcoming disc release should work quite nicely. Video Games Live: Level 2 brings the concert to video for the first time, bringing top orchestras playing the best game music to your home. 

The video release includes more than three hours of bonus material, including interviews with composers, "making of" segments, trailers, and some behind-the-scenes bits. Of course, the bulk of the video content is a filming of the actual concert, which you may have seen part of on PBS lately. This is the full show that was recently filmed in New Orleans. It features the Louisiana Philharmonic Orchestra, a 34-person chorus, and several soloists and special sections.

The CD and video releases all go on sale on October 19th. We're following up on pricing on these releases. For now,  you'll find the tracklist for the CD and video discs after the jump.

Still waiting by the mailbox. Tranq'd a jogger and stuffed them into a locker just for fun. I keep throwing rocks to get the attention of the neighbors and then hiding in tall grass. They look noticeably upset. Probably because I kept them up all night.

Metal Gear or Mad Max? The choice is obvious. [IMG]http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b321/Felth/obvious%20choice.jpg~original[/IMG]

Xbone journey continues! I thought I would like Dead Rising 3 well enough as a huge fan of 1/2, but I must say I find it's emphasis on hard drama laughable and the game fundamentally disingenuine. Guess I'm moving on to Forza Horizon 2.

I dig the feature in Until Dawn where, if you have the Playstation camera, it will record you briefly during jump scares for you to watch later. It's a really neat use of an underused peripheral. Too bad I'm dead inside and never react to them.

Not saying this is the case, but Kojima has gone on record as being a huge Mad Max: Fury Road fan. Konami decided to release MGSV on the same day as Mad Max TVG. They're trying piss on Kojima's lawn, man.

OH WOW. Talk about a complete about face. After slogging through the horrid beginning and slow ass swap sequence this game picked up exponentially. So far, I'm enjoying the hell out of it now. All if forgiven. Thank you based Kojima.

After a summer of on-and-off casual play, I've finally reached lv. 34 in Destiny :')

also Fallout Shelter just made me utter this: "I have to get these pregnancies done.." life is trivial in this game!

Let it be known that Metal Gear 2 for MXS has aged horribly and is no fun to play. In the midst of a MGS marathon, looks like I'm skipping ahead to MGS.

Just out of curiosity, does anybody here still play Mario Kart 8 at all frequently?

Neighbors ended up calling the cops. I hid under a cardboard box. Police officers were perplexed but went back to their patrol routes after a minute or so.
