E for All Video Games Live special guests revealed

A few days ago we told you about the addition of new musical content (BioShock, Halo 3, and more) to the E for All session of the Video Games Live concert which will take place on October 19th at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles. At that time, we mentioned that a few secret guests were expected, but a new email from co-creator Tommy Tallarico gives us the full rundown on who will be there, and it turns out that “few” is a serious understatement. 

The list is long enough to be an after-the-jump affair, so I’ll leave you to that, but first I should say that anyone that is a fan of creators of video games will want to make it to the after-concert meet and greet session. Big names like David Perry (Earthworm Jim, MDK), Nolan Bushnell (duh!), and Akira Yamaoka (designer and composer of Silent Hill) will be there to shake your hand, and they’re only a few of the long list of game creators and industry types that will be in attendance.
