    Hey everybody.
    brentalfloss here. I usually do 8-bit parodies, but I am also a longtime fan of the Civ series. If you haven't seen it yet, I made a tribute video to the entire franchise using the tune of "Baba Yetu" from Civ IV, but adding my own lyrics. Enjoy, and if you like it, please do pass it on to other Civ-loving friends.

    You can watch it directly here.

    Cheers,
    Brent

    A lot of the lyrics are unintelligible unless you stick earbuds in your ears and turn the amplifiers up to eleven. I did just that, however, and here's a transcript:

    Thanks for trying to help, but you missed a few words in there :)
    The official lyrics are on my [beta] website here.

    In that case, you REALLY need to hold the mike closer to your mouth.

    I didn't have a problem with understanding the words really.

    G-Max, it's just you. I could hear it at my normal volume - 4/16.

    You might need a hearing test, I heard everything perfect.

    More likely, he listened to it on an iPhone or other iDevice... for some reason, Youtube audio sometimes favors one side (left or right), and I used both sides for the vocals, so some of them were probably hard to hear.

    What the hell is 4/16? There's a volume slider on my Windows taskbar that goes from 0-100, and there's a knob on my speakers that doesn't have any numbers on it at all.

    Meh... I guess it doesn't matter. Regardless of what the 4/16 refers to, your standard of "normal" is clearly louder than mine, and I doubt that any amount of arguing between us will change that :undecide:

    Didn't I already say that the lyrics ARE intelligible if your audio devices are cranked up loud enough?

    Mine was not very cranked up, maybe halfway. (Also, they are just built in laptop speakers)

    Fractions make sense to all I would assume. (But maybe it's because I am on Mac to)

    "Spread your equally valid religions."

    Oh, wait, quoting from the video we all just watched is what Youtube comments are for.
