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!

great!

this, is by far the best gamer's anthem i have ever seen (this being the only one) the song to me, a true gamer is excatly what happens to me at end game. i defeat the evil, save the day, won the girl., and is renown by the people as a hero. I lean back in my chair, sigh, say "that is a great game" (depending on how the game actully was i might say that was a big waste of my time) then i walk away, or move on to something new, when i go to sleep that night i remember my adventures of that game and wonder, what would it be like if i try it harder or a differnet way. then as sure as the sun rises the next day, i leap back into that chair start up the game and start over. Execlent music, execlent graphics, and great story.
Keep It up!

Well:

The lyrics were completely true, the graphics were impressive, and the animation was great. However, I had thought it would be more.. epic. Too slow and.. there's a word for what I thought of it.. hmm.. country-ish? Southern? Cowboyish?
It's good video but I think the Scott Pilgrim (the game's) main theme is gonna remain the anthem for me.
