  1. Songs inspired by games. For gamers from gamers.

    Hello, one and all. Seeing how we got a lot of game threads (thanks to DC )), I decided to try making a thread that have a 'games' theme, but is about something very different. Basically, this is about songs inspired by games.

    So, what are those exactly? First of all - this is NOT games soundtrack thread. Also, if someone just sings a song from some game - that's also not interesting. What I seek here are original songs that are inspired by games in general or by any particular game. Made for gamer by gamers. Actually, I will put here 2 songs right away to show what I mean.

    First one is "The World Is Saved", which, in my personal opinion, deserves a title of gamers anthem. As you can see, this one got everything original - lyrics, music, even art. And it's damn great:

    Second one is "Classic Ending Credits WITH LYRICS". I recommend you checking this guy's channel. He takes music from games, but puts his own lyrics which is pretty funny:

    So there. These are examples of what I mean. Being a big fan of games, I enjoy things like that and I hope that you would too. I also hope that you would add some songs that are yet unknown to me. I will also put some more songs here later.

    Time for me to add another video. Now, this one I experienced first-hand, so it will come with a story.

    This happened right after the release of Guild Wars 2 mmo. I believe, it happened during first week. There were traders in game that sold high-level weapons for karma - in-game currency. Those weapons cost many thousands of karma, but on one traider devs forgot to add those 3 zeroes. So, when someone found out that you can get dirt-cheap high-level weapons, the mind of the people was blown. And that was just part of it. Weapons were good, but you could buy like 100 of them easy and re-forge them in mystic forge to create even more powerful weapons of the highest grade and level. MMO players would know how awesome that is.

    When rumor spread, every second person online went to do this. Literally thousands of people, all guided by the common thought - this is too wide-spread to ban for this, and this is a mistake on devs part, not ours. Right? Riiight. Next day all those thousands of people were banned. Forever, as it said at first. No guild, no server was left unharmed.

    But still, it WAS too wide-spread, so developers of the game gave us this option - we could write them a ticket to support, stating what items we got and promising to get rid of them when we are unbanned. And that what we did. In the end, this whole thing cost me 3 days of ban, but it was fun enough experience. And one player, after all this, went and made this great song with some in-game footage:

    (If you go to youtube link, there are lyrics there)

    The World Is Saved is brilliant. I first heard it on Podcast beyond episode 200 and it's been im my most listened to playlist ever since. That is about 90-ish weeks since it's on episode 290 something.

    Another MMO song. I gotta tell you, MMOs are a good source of such creativity. This one is from Warhammer Online, and it tells you about a PvP drama. Some people in massive faction battles capped the maps while other side was sleeping. This, naturally, led to many complains and, finally, this song here was made about how forces of destruction captured capital of order forces while noone was there.

    When you talk about music arranges from video games, you obviously talk about Touhou circles.

    @ninryu no I obviously do not. I talk about songs. What you got here is just music. Song have lyrics. You know, words? Which rhyme and, hopefully, are smart and funny and entertaining? So, while trying to be a touhoufag, you failed miserably to provide something relevant for this thread.

    Tried the Resident Evil Revelations PC Demo yesterday just to find atrocious mouse acceleration that made trying to shoot enough with precision a farce. Just set up my gamepad for the game, and remembered this nice little song about RE6 - thought I'd post it

    And since I finally convinced myself to pay those 3,74€ for Mass Effect 1 on Steam (and by extension also Origin w/ my key) and got ME2 in a bundle for 4 bucks, twice, have this:

    Both were done by the same guy, who goes by the name of "miracle of sound" on youtube and Bandcamp. Buy his songs here - he released his third collection in April this year.

    Also this by the same guy:

    Dream Of The Sky

    Oh come on away to the city
    A kingdom to behold
    Where the bluest skies they float on by
    The streets all paved in gold
    Where under the smiles fair and pretty
    Are teeth so very white
    Into the bones of our burdened necks they bite

    Baptised in the water
    You're draining the well
    You built up your heaven
    On the back of hell
    Divine is the daughter
    The dream that you sell
    You built up your heaven
    On the back of hell

    Breakin' our backs
    On breakin' down stones
    Raisin' up buildings
    Breakin' down bones
    Work all the night
    And we work all the day
    Don't get a choice man
    Don't get a say

    Well there's a stormcloud stirrin' now
    Revolt!
    There's a stormcloud stirrin' now
    Revolt!

    The filthy streets and the calloused feet
    And bloodshot Irish eyes
    A floating haven for the craven
    Nestled in the skies
    Well up and out and away with ya
    There's a fight outside your doors
    The shining pride of America
    Is a nation up for war

    Revolt!

    Baptised in the water
    You're draining the well
    You built up your heaven
    On the back of hell
    Divine is the daughter
    The dream that you sell
    You built up your heaven
    On the back of hell

    The hybrid face of time and space
    And all that's in between
    Dimensions twist and turn amidst
    The the whims of one foreseen...

    Songbird take me home

    I am lonely wherever I go
    Sanctuary is all that know

    And I dream of the sky
    Broken clouds drifting by
    And I dream of the sky
    My utopian lie

    Take to the skies
    With my only friend
    Every angel
    Begins at the end

    @ninryu for speaking to retards - yes, there is such need, it seems. If you wanna be a mindless dick and push forward your touhou obsession - how about adding translation to lyrics? Or you don't mind listening to and giving to others songs that they would not fucking understand as long as there is a touhou character there somewhere? If your next post here is as dumb as all the previous - I will flag it as spam and then I will commit to fucking up the things you would try to start.

    PS. Also, you are unimaginative fuck. Even I know a Bad Apple version that is ways more creative than the shit you are posting.

    PPS. Follow DC's example. See, he posts descriptions and lyrics. He even puts in some links! He is typing! Is it too hard for you to do the same?

    Oh god, @Ecstasy I don't even know. Is Ninruy the "butthurt" one for calling Kirn an asshole (which he can totally be at times). Or is Kirn the "butthurt" one for going into defense mode when being called an asshole and continue to act like a total asshole? I'm just wondering, cause I am sick and tired of posts claiming people to have buttocks pain and honestly, I believe it to be below name calling in the holy argumentation pyramid. Geez.

    With love, Noodle~

    @Noodle I meant Kirn. There's no need to be a dick whenever someone posts something you don't like~ oh wait, we are on CL and this is Kirn. Of course.

    I am sick and tired of post claiming people to have buttocks pain and honestly, I believe it to be below name calling in the holy argumentation pyramid.

    You may have your opinion, I have mine. There is no better way for me to describe unnecessary aggression.

    Now. Back on track here to show you people how it should be done. This here is a Russian fan-made song. The sing is about Warhammer 40K. It is called "The Space-Marine Fell on my Girlfriend" and I think it's extremely funny. The setting is a small group of Imperial Guardsmen (no doubt, from some Russian feral world ))) let by a Commissar. The video is really weird, but yes, Russians Guardsmen are probably like that )

    Here's the song, and I will translate all the writings there and the song itself (no, I won't try to rhyme it in English, but in Russian in rhymes):

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pz7jOry30f4

    0:01 - Somewhere on Imperium frontier

    0:53 - The enemy died.
    0:56 - Make camp, soldiers

    1:14 - Comrade Commissar
    1:17 - How about our regiment song
    1:20 - Can do!

    ---

    The song:

    Under cherry-tree me and my girlfriend drank some juice,
    I turned around for a moment and drop-pod fell on her,
    In one second she was flattened and the blood is everywhere,
    How could you, space-marine, crush my love!

    Oooooooh, the space-marine fell on my girlfriend.
    Oooooooh, the space-marine fell on my girlfriend.

    He came out is scarlet armor, asking 'where's enemy?'
    And I can't answer, her brains are on my hands,
    And I look at Aquila, and the blood is dripping from it,
    How could you, space-marine, crush my love!

    Oooooooh, the space-marine fell on my girlfriend.
    Oooooooh, the space-marine fell on my girlfriend.

    He put on the jet-pack and whooshed into the sky,
    Her blue eyes are left on a spaulder,
    I disconsolately cry, asking again and again,
    How could you, space-marine, crush my love!

    Oooooooh, the space-marine fell on my girlfriend.
    Oooooooh, the space-marine fell on my girlfriend.

    I looked at her remains - there are two tentacles and a fang,
    And fourteen tentacle suckers and a forked tongue,
    By the blood of the Emperor, she's Slaanesh follower!
    You were right, space-marine, to crush my love!

    Oooooooh, the space-marine fell on my girlfriend.
    Ooohyeah, the space-marine fell on my girlfriend.
    Oooooooh, the space-marine fell on my girlfriend.
    Ooohyeah, the space-marine fell on my girlfriend.

    ---

    3:40 - night

    4:00 - morning suns are shining

    4:14 - enemy escaped!

    4:29 - but not far...

    4:38 - DEATH

    ^ ah yes, that is a good one, and well-known on CL, I think. I was going to post it later too if noone else would )

    @Kirn It seems that you are either troll or completely retarded, maybe both. Bushing at other people's liking like that without any reason whatsoever.

  15. #560852013-05-22 08:56:59Kirn said:

    (well, I waited 12+ hours, now let's continue)

    @ninryu you are the one who can't or refuse to read, and you call me retarded? Yeah, okay. However, hey, we are making progress - on your third post you didn't post any crap video. You might yet be trained properly. And about what other people like - I don't give a fuck what you like if you post on me thread something that doesn't belong. You wanna post touhou arrangements? Make a fucking thread for it and knock yourself out. But no, you decided to be a mindless faggot and post that here. Well, you fuck up, now own up to it or piss off.

    Oh, and before you start going about touhou haters. I actually like the games. I just do not like you and your crap. Do you know that "Cirno math class" would have been perfectly good for this thread? No. Did you even tried to think about it what would have been good here? Fuck no. Should you go and kill yourself? Fuck yes!

    @ninryu

    do not instigate anymore fights. you aren't a child. when something bothers you, walk away from the situation or ignore it.

    if you have an issue with Kirn i suggest taking this conversation to somewhere more private. if i see you post something negative here again and further deteriorate the topic of the thread, i will remove your post. one of your posts has already been flagged. do not let this happen again.

    you were given directions about how/what to post in this thread, and regardless if you liked the way you were approached about it or not, you have to follow those rules.

    and @Kirn

    please try to also ignore ninryu if they continue to instigate you. if there are anymore issues, please use the flagging system again and i will handle the problem.

    Actually. For all you touhou fans out there, who are normal. Here's "Cirno's Perfect Math Class" with English subs. The song is Japanese and very frantic (both music, lyrics and video). I would say, that it relies heavily on you knowing your touhou and characters, otherwise you would miss a lot of things that are good and funny. Still, it's worth a watch even if just for the bus math problem which is honestly hilarious )
