Dissidia 012 Duodecim Final Fantasy: God in Fire



Another post about videogame music from me. This time it's from Dissidia 012 Duodecim: Final Fantasy, this is the song for the god of discord hence why this song is all about chaos and destruction. Don't forget to turn captions ON so you could read the lyrics while playing. ­­


God in Fire
By: Kidneythieves
Gone in a second, ultimate destruction
Gods are warring, sorrow neverending
Endless chaos for an eternity
Welcome to the abyss

Backwater town where nothing happens
Don't let disguises fool you
Evil is coming from everywhere
Destroying all that we believe is good

My mother's ghost still haunts me now
Fortune abandoned by God
Nothing can bring her back to me
Now I will seek to preach and destroy

There is no mercy, compassion in the world
Embrace the chaos, for in the end that is all
Now the universe is broken, lost its course
Turn your back on all you have loved, for it is

Gone in a second, ultimate destruction
Gods are warring, sorrow neverending
Endless chaos for an eternity
Welcome to the abyss

Creation desperate waiting for
Herein comes to transcend all war
Watch how the blood must starve the divine
Throw out his hatred for all time

There is no mercy, compassion in the world
Embrace the chaos, for in the end that is all
Now the universe is broken, lost its course
Turn your back on all you have loved, for it is

Gone in a second, ultimate destruction
Gods are warring, sorrow neverending
Endless chaos for an eternity
Welcome to the end, to the abyss

All gods will live on and so it will be
Alpha omega an end that you'll see

Gone in a second, ultimate destruction
Gods are warring, sorrow neverending
Endless chaos for an eternity
Welcome to the end, to the abyss

   

Like my previous music post, this music is played during a certain stage where you fight the most savage of beasts, Feral Chaos, the final boss of the game. After waging an endless war against the goddess of harmony, Chaos, the god of discord went completely insane and became nothing but a beast unleashed to bring forth destruction.

AKB48 to Use Google+ to Reach Fans in Multiple Languages



The pop idol group AKB48 announced on Thursday that all members will join the social networking service Google+ to connect with fans worldwide. The project team plans to offer translations of the female singers' posts in English, Chinese, Korean, Thai, and Indonesian. The announcement came as AKB48 celebrated its sixth anniversary on Thursday.
The 260 total performers in AKB48 and its sister groups, such as SKE48 and NMB48, will post messages, pictures, and videos using Google+. Due to the popularity of AKB48's founding concept "idols you can meet," the project's creators want to provide a new way for fans to interact with all the groups' singers. Because Google+ accounts are restricted to people over the age of 18, an account called "Heyakko" will post on behalf of the younger idols.
Each AKB48 and sister group member will be able to video chat with up to nine fans using Google+'s Hangout feature. The singers also intend to use the service to post live from events including the "AKB48 Kōhaku Taikou Uta Gassen" song battle on December 20 and the “AKB48 Request Hour Setlist Best 100 2012″ concert event in January.
