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!

Catchy.

I gotta admit, this probably isn't the best user created audio in the world, but it has it's unique style of rhythm to it which catches peoples' attention. I'm mostly looking for new, creative songs that don't necessarily sound like another popular song and make you glad you were able to listen to an innovative attempt to spice up NG. I gotta say man, it shows when effort is put into anything...and it should in this case. Keep it up, the perfect song is at reach.

pretty cool song

hey this was pretty cool, the song pretty much summed up why i play video games in the first place, but i wasnt a massive fan of the art style. even so i read ign all the time, i cant believe i missed this great little song :)
