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:

Wow. That was very well made and the sprite animation was really nice. Star ocean and tales of, will definitely keep you leveling up like that guy XD. I started dying laughing when the gamers lack of excerise and strained eyes starting getting to him. T'AI CHI CH'UAN TRAINING FOR THE WIN!

Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

This makes me think even more fondly of my Dragonborn's perilous and heroic adventures in Skyrim and Morrowind.... and yet she still has so much to do, even though the world is saved.


Rated 5 / 5 stars

I watched this and marked it as a favorite a long time ago, and then forgot about it. This is a good thing, because now I could discover it again and be blown away once more.
