There was this Playstation game back when – what was this, 98 or 99 or so? There was a couple I remember from that time, while I was doing Frosted Mini Wheats. Me and my then girlfriend would sit in our apartment and watch Xena Warrior Princess and play Playstation – one game we played a lot was this fighting/adventure thing where you were this guy with a jack-o-lantern head who had returned from the dead, having been killed in a battle in the middle ages, and you would go around fighting stuff.
Then we got into this game Overblood. It was crazy cool. At the beginning of the game, you wake up in a strange underground scientific facility, it’s all lonely, and the first thing that happens is this cut sequence where you say “how did I get here? i can’t remember. i can’t remember myself. my gosh i don’t even know who i am!”
And the rest of the game you try to get to the surface and find out who the hell you are. You fight these zombies and you meet and befriend a robot named Pipo, who dies and you say “noooo!!! PIIIIIIIIIIIIPPPPPPPPPOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO”
Oh man me and Larrisse laughed and laughed and laughed about that. PIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIPPPPPPPPPPPOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!
So I sampled the thing. I was so excited because the Playstation actually had normal stereo RCA outputs and you could just plug that thing into a mixing board or whatever and record it. You could also just record the video/audio outputs on a VCR. I did that a LOT. I recorded while I played the first Tomb Raider. I used to record my deaths too so I could show Larrisse ’cause it would freak her out to see ‘ol Lara Croft crack all her bones and such.
So I wrote this Over My Dead Blood tune using those samples, and I called it Over My Dead Blood as a probably obvious word play – “over my dead body!!”, Overblood, etc. You get it I’m sure.
Yep that’s that one.
