Wait, this looks familiar...That is correct, this is the new home of the former Rock-Out.Net "Backup" page, now VGLive, hosted at TheTestTube. This may look really, well, lazy and copy-pasted at the moment, but give it some time until we can compile the list. This is going to become a resource for video game artists and a community for fans to talk about particular artists.

The forum resource is located here, and if you are knowledgable about a particular artist and want to contribute, or just want to read more, click to read on.
