31 Days - Day 29: A World of Nothing


Super Mario Odyssey is just eating up a lot of my free time, so how about another Mario tune from another game. Today’s song is:

Super Paper Mario: World of Nothing

As I’ve said before the Paper Mario series has some of the best creepy music. This song is a bit unnerving, especially when you consider what this song means in the grand scheme of things. The world of nothing is the ruins of the Sammer kingdom swallowed by the void. Even its world heart has turned to stone. People, buildings, life itself, all whipped out in an instant. Just stop for a moment and think about that. Perhaps millions of people with families where just vaporized in a few seconds, and it wasn’t a peaceful few seconds. The atmosphere was already set to “world ending” so it wasn’t like these people didn’t know what was happening. Whether they tried to run or hide in those final moments all of it would be in vain as there was virtually nothing left after the fact.

It is stuff like this that really makes me wonder as to what kind of magic Nintendo employees to have these kinds of dark elements in their games, and yet still maintain an E for everyone.

The song itself hits a few different notes for me. The distorted piano reminds me of old children’s songs. Another thing that comes to mind while listening to this is the aftermath of a bomb. The ringing in the song reminds me of ringing ears, the disjointed tune also fits the chaos one would expect from an area that has just blown up. That is just my take on it though.

A bit of a blast from the past here:

About Agent9one of us since 12:45 PM on 04.13.2010

Who is Agent9? The not so secret agent of the destructoid community.

A Few things about me

- I'm almost finished with my degree in computer science and I plan on going into independent development and freelancing once I'm done.

- I can be very cynical, but I do try to be positive or curb my negativity. In spite of this I'm actually very jovial in person and I don't get mad often. I would dare say I'm quite happy, even when things seem bleak. I simply don't like industry Bullshit and I'm not one to stand for it, even if it's a game I like.

- I host a series annually called 31 Days where I post 1 horror related or themed video game song a day for the month of october. During this time I also provide keys for games (free of course) to any reader observant enough to find them.

- I've been a member of destructoid since 2010, and a lurker long before then. As such I've seen many people both come and go. Such is the natural order of things.

- I enjoy Art and draw in my spare time

- I also enjoy theatre and films. I especially like Horror movies (both good and bad ones).

- I go camping once or twice a year. I would go out more but my allergies tend to get in the way.

- I don't drink, which may be a surprise to some. I might make a joke or two about it but I stay away from alcohol for my own personal reasons, though you can feel free to drink a pint on my behalf any time you'd like.

This is a commission I had done for me by Inquisitive Ravenclaw. You should check out his site if you like the following piece

I also got a musical piece made for me by the incredible Alphadeus. A little history behind this:

My musical piece came as part of the Songs for Gamers album DLC pack 02. Alphadeus has been making songs for the members of the destructoid community for years already. This past year he opened submissions and I applied. For my meagre efforts I received this lovely piece:

You can find him on youtube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCFs2UhJYPVITYWCiqMk-z3w

He also has other venues listed on his profile here, take a look if you are so inclined:

The community is full of people with all kinds of talent and I'm very pleased to be a part of it along with all of you (yes, you too fair reader).
