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!

Just finished Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag. Needed to watch this video again. It was all I could do to keep from shedding a tear. The struggle is real.

This reminds me of Pokémon X and Y because you saved the Pokémon world and a man from their ultimate demise. The man that had a belief. The man that made that belief come to life... Lysandre.

Dear Mr EKublai:

I've got this stuck in my head for ten days. Well done you complete bastard.
The song and animation is great and very relatable indeed.

I'd not long just finished another playthrough of Kingdom Hearts 2 and this song perfectly captures my feelings right now. Truely a flash for the ages.
