The Fjords' latest music video for the song "All In" brings 80s nostalgia and nightmares to life when one kid's NES becomes a real weapon, leading the boy on a rampage sure to cause a stir in the media.  

Here's what the band and video director had to say about it:

First off, we made the video bonding over our shared nostalgic love for all things 80s. It is where we spent our childhoods, and also formed the onset of the digital age. The music video is ambiguous when it comes to drawing a line between reality and fantasy. Where the fantastical aspect ends and reality takes over, is up to the individual viewer. Thematically you have the smaller, personal story - which is the young kid dealing with his oppressors. On a larger scale, we wanted to shed light on the incredible speed of technological developments, both in online social networks, gaming, TV, etc, and our place in it, as humans. We´re living amidst the biggest social experiment to date, and ethical boundaries can get blurry when we´re in the thick of it.


Warning: the video itself features some pretty grim violence, but I can't say I don't enjoy the idea of game cartridges as different weapon/ammo types.

But I could already listen to whatever I want, you say? Not from within Steam, you couldn't:

Point Steam to the MP3s on your computer, then browse your collection of albums and artists. You'll also find your Steam Soundtracks DLC in your Steam Music library when the associated base game is installed. Listen to albums, queue up mixes, and create playlists you love, right in your Steam library. Best of all, it's all available right within the Steam Overlay, so you can control playback without leaving your game. The Steam Music library and player consist of all the basics you need to enjoy your music without switching tasks.

In celebration of this new feature, Valve is giving away the soundtracks to the Half-Life and Portal series' to those who own the games, in case you want some other games to be a triumph.
