Watch Skyrim Mashed Up with Bastion's Narrator

Watch Skyrim Mashed Up with Bastion's Narrator

The unreliable narrator from Bastion does a pretty damn good job explaining the opening of Skyrim.

The breakout RPG from last year didn't have a Zelda in the title or come from powerhouses like BioWare or Betehsda. No, the distinction goes to the XBLA and PC game Bastion for its stylistic presentation, great music and, of course, the excellent characterization of the narrator. YouTube user Egger3rd took the last two qualities and had the brilliant idea of throwing it in with the visuals of the opening of Skyrim. The result is an oddly cohesive and entertaining little vignette.

I especially like the transition from "the Kid" to the adult version put up for execution by the Empire. Egger3rd did an great job pulling quotes from Rucks as played by Logan Cunningham that I almost forgot that these were two different games.

The captions could use some help with translation though. At 4:04 the captain is referred to as "cat pen," which is pretty hilarious. But even better is the description of the far off dragon cries: "Sexy whale noises"? Oh really?

I'll never look at those dragons the same way again.

This pendant would look lovely on *stab* my sister! NuuuuuuURGGGHASHFBLARGGHFGFD

I must admit, that is pretty damn awesome

Bastion and Skyrim: Together they built somethin grand.

Saw this on Destructoid earlier, very well done. I'm actually excited for part 2!

I cackled when the imperial commander came up as "Skank".

What the hell happened to the player character's arms when he walked to the executioner?!

2:19-
Skank:''Get these prisoners out of the carts, move it!'' Captain Rikke(The legion women)is referred to as 'Skank'.
I love youtube subtitles.

That was good! Seems like an awesome mash-up! Always enjoy a media cross-over like that! Especially when it is done as well as tht one!

Now I am more desperate to get home in April, so I can try this Bastion that everyone talks about!! :P (Doesn't help that Camp Bastion seems to be taunting me and rubbing it in!)

That.was.awesome!

My pants...they're all wet! I had forgotten how impossibly sexy that narrator's voice is. Couple that with the opening of Skyrim, and somehow it just got even sexier. This seems exactly like the missing element that the Extra Credits guys were talking about when they covered the Skyrim introduction. Talk about a home run, oh yes.

"Kid does what he has to do."

*fwoop*

....WHAT

I am... I don't... what about...

This is a masterpiece.

"Lissen... all this takes a lot of getting used to... and you do get used to it... after a while...

Folks from Saylandia knew how to carry a tune.

Sure we've got some songs on the ole' gramophone... but try n' imagine what they sounded like, playing to room full o' fine people.

Unwinding at the soul regret after a hard days work... Those were the days.

That sound track is incredible.

I think i sense a meme coming on. Makes me want to make one of these too.

I love youtube subtitles.

that's not Rikke, Rikke is a Legate, and you kill the captain woman if you run with the stormcloaks in the intro

I giggled when he said Tall Grass :F.

Might be a stupid question, are all those narrator things from the actual game? Or did you somehow coax him into making those? (was mainly surprised by the SSBM one)

Thanks for the clarification,I mistook the two because Captain Skank & Rikke have the same voice actor,armor,& have similar faces.

"Ones been livin' in the tall grass" was too much, I lost it xD
Hell typing that made me giggle as I remembered it :P

One of the better videos people put on Youtube, needs more views, glad to see it posted here.
(Also now that I've heard Rucks' voice again I feel like I MUST listen to the soundtrack again >.>)
