New video game tribute band formed
Jason Hayes, a composer at Blizzard Entertainment, has started up a new video game tribute band called Critical Hit.
The group’s first album, which comes out at the end of the month for $15, will feature the themes of Tetris, Pokemon, Halo 2 and more. Anyone that pre-orders before Oct. 31 will get a signed copy by Hayes.
Hayes was the lead composer for World of Warcraft, and has worked on Dota 2, Diablo 2 and StarCraft, among other titles.
The first live show from the group will be Nov. 9 at BlizzCon during the Sound Panel.
