The Anthem of the Gamer.

The World is Saved is a new epic song and anthem for video game fans. Made in the pixel-art style of SNES (Super Nintendo) cutscenes, this video was a collaborative effort from IGN's Podcast Beyond community. IGN's Ryan Clements pulled together a small team of volunteers to animate a video for Danny Wiessner's latest single. The video debuted at the end of the live recording of Podcast Beyond Episode 200, which can be viewed here: http://ps3.ign.com/articles/118/1186511p1.html

Please support Danny by purchasing his song! Now on Itunes!

Is it cold in here?

...cuz that gave me the chills. Well done. We all feel empty when a game is done, but escaping for a time makes it somewhat worthwhile.

Awesome... just... awesome!

Thanks for giving more sense to the life of some gamers. We don't really play for finshing a game, but for the game itself. Even though there's the good sensation of "The World is Saved" you soon realize that you weren't looking towards the end, but for what's after. Then you start to go for the 100% completicion, and when you're done you start for a new adventure...

Excellent job! 5/5 and 10/10 for you!
