This isn't half bad. ^_^
You do have a few sound errors (such as 2 sounds overlapping, or the sounds being too loud. Lowering the volume, and fading music in/out would help considerably), and there is an issue with sprite-mixing (where you use too many sprites from games that have sprites that look different. Try comparing that MM7 style Maple sprite you used (and didn't credit for. ALWAYS credit custom sprites) to the JUS style Link).
Urgh... I TTA Ripoff?
A Blatant one too. The sprites you used were *barely* edited from the original MMBN sprites (An Olive Green ProtoMan? Seriously?), and the graphics in general were slowly animated and dragged through the .jpg machine.
The sound didn't drift from MMBN either, but was of decent sound quality. You had extras, which was nice, but they were poorly written and formatted.
I suggest you redo this. Learn how to edit sprites beyond just recolouring them, and try to save your characters and backgrounds as .png. Work on your spelling quality and scripting; trying to keep what they say in each textbox to a minimum.
If something needs explaining (like the MMO explanation at the beginning), use visual aides to help keep the reader interested. I had no incentive to actually read the text, and just kept clicking the 'Continue Script' button.
Finally and most importantly, get your own damn ideas. The MMO idea, while cool, has now been done to death by several different mediums, not just TTA. It's starting to get to DBZ levels of old.
I hope you take the time to read this; normally I don't leave such long comments, but this flash could have been so, SO much better if you had avoided some major pitfalls.
You were pretty much right in every aspect...
I could of course object in a lot of things but that's just stupid...
1 thing i do want to say...
This is my second movie and it has a 'decent score!' God! let me freaking celebrate this already!
Anyways, i will keep your points in the back of my head and work on them... When i get the skills to.. -.-"
Thanks for this long review dude! :D
I absolutely adore breakbeat. I almost cried when the bass kicked in. You artwork isd also remarkable - and extremely detailed.
5'd and Fav'd. =D
One again, you win.
A neat little finale. It's a shame this is the end, I enjoyed your series immensly. My personal favourite was "Another One Bytes the Dust". =D
I get that a lot. Everyone just seems to love Teh Internauit. Anyway, I'm glad you liked the series.
It's all the awesomness of the first, with 50% more internet memes! Yay! =D
Oh, and the FilthyZord was awesome. Had boobs and all.
Your animation skills are very impressive...
But a Skittles N Bitz clone? With fart and sex jokes. Neither funny nor original.
But it's what the Portal wants, so I guess it's nice that you cater for the public.
Yeah. I guess you're right. Im glad you didn't give me 6 Paqragraphs about how awful the sprite humor was and how I copied off skittlez and bits. (Which I disagree with both)
So thanks ^^.
>_> Your guest writer writes better than you~!
It has to be said. Don't get me wrong, your stuff is excellent, but this made me actually laugh out loud; something pretty rare. Maybe you two should collaborate more often? Graphics and sound quality the same standard as before; and that's not a bad thing. ^_~
Actually, if you're accepting guest scripts, I might try a hand at this - it'd be good practice...
Disappointing, mate, but I'll rise above it, because I am the consumate professional. But if Enoll's going to be upstaging me then we're definitely not making this a regular thing.
In all seriousness though I'd love to get a script from you, I've got about 5 guest scripts so far and the more the better, it just means there's more quality material.
Best. One. Yet.
Ah, how I wish I had a big, black man with a shotgun. The humour in this one is very open - more so than your last one. The fact that it ran on longer is a good thing - there are so many flashes that run on far longer, and don't lose steam or anything like that. Mostly as I can sit through text-based flashes for 20 mins without complaint.
Yeah absolutely, the humour in this one is way more broad than before. I don't want to alienate too many people - I tread a fine line in making these films, in that if I get too idealogical some people might not get the jokes, but if I steer clear of idealogies then I'm killing all the satire and veering away from my original intention. I mean, we've gotta keep in mind that I'm not making these flashes to change the world, I'm making them to entertain people about the expense of stupid behaviour.
Great quality as always.
But I felt the dialogue ran a little to quick this time. Don't get me wrong, I'm involved enough in current affairs to understand what they were talking about, but they switched ideas a little too fast for me to follow, so I had to watch it through a few times before I got everything.
Yeah I knew I was going to run into a bit of trouble trying to cover both Iraq and abortion in thirty seconds. It's definitely not your problem. I guess the way I rationalised it was that if you watched it once, you'd realise that being pro-life and pro-killing is absurd. You can read into it further from there with further views, but if I get A Point Across first time round, then I figured that was alright.
Ah, how I hated the real advert...
Mitchel and Webb are *not* funny. You on the other hand, are. A very neat parody, and excellent sound quality. You do get a few gaps in limbs when they move and stuff, but that's so minor, it really doesn't matter.
I think I will add you to Fav. Artists. Congrats. ^_^
Thanks, I spend a lot of time optimising sound. Half the time making these films is getting the timing right.
