Hahaha, pretty good
Probably would've been a bit better if you had drawn the main character of Portal in it instead of the generic "stick figure". Though, I guess you were pretty hard pressed for time and all.
That aside it was well made, the lip syncing was perfect and the facial expressions on the computer's screen were very cute. Really nice work.
BTW: I enjoy the comic, but I'm a bit surprised though... Those two didn't even make a cameo?
Funny, glad to see Bagley is back too. (see below)
It's funny, though. A while back people were giving 0's to your work for all of the ranting and not enough physical humor, and purists were giving you 10's exactly for all the ranting and no physical humor. But if you try something a little different, like change the art style, incorporate more animation, and add a bit of tit humor- it suddenly goes in reverse.
Suddenly, the casual NG user starts to enjoy your work, votes a 3, 4 or even a 5 because you provided a few laughs, but then the old "vote 5" crowd suddenly turns and starts complaining and voting 0's. And then there are those who think it should go back to it's roots: no talking, just Foamy and "Goth Girl" and their antics. That would probably enrage people even more.
I don't really get it, irony at it's best, I suppose. I think either you or the fans put the Foamy series on such a high pedestal, (or they're just unbelievably anal and need something to be their voice), that they won't accept, or consider, a deviation in the series' humor.
Don't let it get you down. Non-assholes will still enjoy the movie, get the message, have a few laughs and appreciate your work.
Like the saying goes: you can't win 'em all.
Already saw this...
... when it was uploaded before, though I'm glad the to see that the true creator get her deserved recognition.
The graphics very silly looking. not super realistic , but that was on purpose and it really enhanced the humor, and the animation looked smooth regardless. It felt pretty fast paced, and I liked the cracks about the Player Character only getting the sword in Arsenal Gear, or the difficulty of swimming in MGS2, I think fans will really be able to appreciate that.
I cant really say much about its relation to the manga, because up to this point I think I've only heard about, it sounds familiar. I'll be sure to look into it, though. (I suppose I'd be pretty far behind in the story by now, right?)
Give it an 8 because its great, and a 5 for hilarity.
About 1,000 people saw it when it was stolen last month, and at that time, it had a score of 3.30. I'm happy the way things turned out now as there's some redemption in beating my own score. I down-graded the graphics to near laughable quality, you're absolutely right about that. Though it also gave me a chance to try out some effects that would have been too complicated for me in a high quality animation. Those picture in picture shots were a pain. >-<
I reccommend you check out the manga, when you have a chance. It's very slice of life, so you'd have no problem understanding and catching up with everything by just reading one chapter. It's very pleasantly warm reading!
Glad to see lyricism isn't dead. Definitely one of the better hip hop songs I've heard in the NGA portal, better than most hip hop you may here these days... but i wont go into that. Biiiiiiiig ups for the beat, it's godly, really brought me back to when i first played LOZ: OoT.
Also, totally agree with the game commentary in the end =p. Hope to hear more.
