Didn't know you were still alive, it's good to see the oldschool style truckin along. yet at the same time, I think I've grown out of the spam N' eggs... I don't know. Maybe My tastes have changed nowadays
its all about the experience. everyone has changed in 5 years, but who says we cant have another little fiasco again ;)
Great start you guys!
This story has so much character, and so many different aspects to explore... solid writing, and a nice and cohesive art design makes me think this is going to be a big hit!
Hey, I remember this!
As always, the animation is excellent.
The gag was simple, yet satisfying... although you get dinged a point for reused material, and the entertainment factor is worth a giggle, but nothing more...
Regardless of these nit-picks, it's always great to see stuff from you. you always deliver the fun factor for mostly all ages!
THE GAME IS OUT!
We can finally rest easy as the beard is (supposedly) shaven now! great game, but hails in comparison to the original!
got it in 1:17
very unique and fun, anything with the mastermind is gold, Love to see more animations though!
Here's what I'll send in...
Acting: Some personalities were more believable than others, and some seemed to be stuttering before saying the right words. I know most people don't talk very fluently but this seemed a little overdone, almost too improvised.
Fit: All voices were done well, and they fit their corresponding characters with almost stereotypical precision... in a good way though.
Originality: Even though it was an overused subject, the addictions were very unique, and it is quite entertaining to visualize these people's addictions.
Range: All characters have their own distinction, and it was pulled off quite nicely. I think two characters sounded a little too similar, but since the dialogue is so rapid-fire it's not too noticeable.
Mixing: (at first) There's nice background chatter, and the music fit nicely... I could hardly spot any pops or hard letters, and the volume was very even throughout the- (suddenly) FFFFFFFFFUUUUUUUCCKKK!!?! Take that goddamn cricket chirp out... I think my ears are bleeding!
I'm thinking your strong points were in the "Fit" & "Originality" categories.
I really dug the improv style of humor even though some lines were over-the-top, it still adds to the presentation.
Thanks very much for the great review! A lot of people have been telling me about that cricket thing. It didn't seem that loud for me so I'm not sure what happened. haha.
The improv was a lot of fun, but I might try a script next time and see how it goes.
Thanks again! Can't wait to see the final results!
Acting: stoner and narrator were believable, the main character seemed really calm for his situation, but for the most part the characters played their parts respectively.
Fit: I can't really believe the news anchor, and the main character is too quiet at times when it seemed like you were trying to yell... really belt it out there to give it some passion man!
Originality: this escalates into a bit of a clusterfuck of events, and you really don't see some of them coming!
Range: you can definitely tell them apart, this was one of your strongest points
Mixing: there's some heavy breathing issues, and some portions need the volume to be tweaked
To be honest, it was really hard to pay attention the ENTIRE 8 minutes. After a couple of listens, it kinda grew on me... I keep finding little quotables, and funny wordplay such as "It's whatever" or "ROBOT JESUS" I enjoyed those touches.
If you were going for the ENTIRE 8 minutes then it should be a story that really draws you in, this really could be cut down to about 4 minutes if you cut down some filler.
A pez addiction is new! and I liked how this ended, even though it seemed to drag on.
Thank you very much- I'll definitely work on all of that.
I'm glad to hear that Range is one of my strong point's, because as I figure it's the base point for VAing- and as for volume and mixing that's something I'll just have to work on.
With the story it'self- I should have taken much more time with it- and that's fully on me.
Thank you much for the review, I'll use this to work on developing my VAing from this point on. Much appreciated ^_^
This is what I will send in...
Acting: Most lines were believable, as their characters' voices sounded like themselves, even though some of them went slightly out of character.
Fit: Yep... they fit well.
Originality: Kinda lacking, I think you could've created your own characters and it would still mostly have the same humor.
Range: Done with ease, there was only one or two times I could tell they were the same person.
Mixing: Very clear, and has very audibly pleasing sound effects at the right moments, except the part where Mario kills Heavy... that part seemed like it was cut sloppily.
The humor here is definitely one of your strong points, and most of the impressions were... well... impressive!
The thing about impressions is that IF you can pull them off well, it makes the "fit" portion kinda a breeze, but what this takes away from is the originality, all it takes is putting characters from popular games/shows, and placing them in different situations.
Your interpretations of these characters' actions are entertaining, and it was easy to listen to multiple times. I could easily envision all these characters "acting" in this audio skit! Although I wish the ending line would make have SOMETHING to do with the previous "shows" you did a good job nonetheless!
I was arguing with myself with the whole "original characters? Or impressions?' And I came to this conclusion: There's been so many voices over the years. So many different characters brought to life that no matter who I did it would "sound like [insert character name here]" therefore I mostly took a spastic storyline (Changing the channels on a TV) so I could put in that random "..and that's why I'm a millionaire!" part without making it lame or having to complicate a simple premise.
Aaaand that's my reasoning behind it. I'm glad the humor was good, and I am happy the voices were diverse and well done. It was what I intended.
But has a certain charm to it... very nice for a quick glance
I know, what a load of shit!
If they were put against Zynga they might've stood a chance!
"What? you aren't Japanese schoolgirls! YAAHHH!
My personal favorite detail is that the both have Poseidon's Trident.
Even if I didn't know you made this... I would still say "This is definitely greasy moose material" you do have a liking to squishy sea dwellers!
