Overwatch Clip Show 49 - Turn The Lamp Down Low.

After a long delay!  I had in no way planned for this finally getting finished to coincide with... the fucking opening of Blizzcon and the explosion of news that came with it.  But it's done, I've been working on it for like a week and I finally got it done last night and this is happening.

I've been wanting to use a song by Canadian band The Tea Party since... well since I started doing these vids, actually - but it never worked out.  This time, though, I knew I wanted to include the Roadhog "duel" that begins the vid, and I was playing around with it with a few songs.  Lining the final melee strike up against a drum smash or something never worked - because it had been preceded by two other melee strikes.  The third was comparatively meaningless.  The melee didn't matter.

The wave mattered.  And I lined it up with the first strum and... I had to use Turn The Lamp Down Low for it.

Here it is on YouTube, if you prefer.

I really like how it turned out!  The first half of the song is fairly slow and mellow, lending itself well to nice long cuts of me just dancing around enemy teams and killing them in (imo) funny ways.  The second half is all crazy drum smashes and rockin' guitars.  I like it!

Also, I'd like it noted that all the stuff on Anubis in the middle?  That's all one long killstreak.  I drove that Bastion mental.

G'night everybody!
