I can't believe it's finally out.
It's been what, 2 years since 8-bit 3? I used to watch these all the time because they're so good! You posted before how it would be a while before 4 is released. To tell you the truth, I gave up hope, thinking this great flash work would never continue. I'm highly impressed with the work, brilliant as always. Maybe this time it won't be so long before the next release? Maybe even catch up to the comic? (near 500 now ;) )
Pretty Amusing Movie
I liked the flash, very well done. The F-Zero music was a nice touch over the overused regular soundtracks on many other flashes.
I enjoyed the movie. It was well voiced and portrayed a simple yet powerful message.
Many members are using this review board to express their displeasure and hatred in the terrorist roots behind the bombings which I feel is wrong. It should be used first and foremost to review the movie, which pertains to absolute innocence. I understand how this review is in fact contradictory to the last statement, but I feel I must express my opinion.
To sidetrack from the movie, I'm a little confused about many of the reviews you've been getting. It seems that very many people have very bad and ill thought out attitudes regarding foreign relations. It's asking a lot to tell the entire newgrounds populace to get a little common decency, especially about a heavily indoctrinated issue as this one. As much of a tradegy as the terrorist bombings are, it's no different than what happens to other countries on a much more frequent basis. Many of which are American caused I might add.
You can't stop violence with violence.
All the entries were well done, but seemed a bit slow. My favorite was Seizure_Dog's, but it could have used some Monty Python: Search of the Holy Grail rabbit.
Informative and Useful Tutorial
Helpful tutorial, my only reccomendation is make a music kill switch.
This is the first I've seen of your series, but after this, I'm definitely going to see the rest. I'd first like to commend you on your use of a spell checker, and your refraining from the use of internet acronyms, for they have spoiled so very many would-be great movies. Also, excellent work on keeping your reiterations of the Final Fantasy VI characters' personalities and dialogue to be up to par with that of the game. I know I'm a big fan of the game, I'm glad someone is doing a good job keeping with the spirit. Great sound quality and use of sounds, as well as nice clear and smooth animation, especially for a 16 bit production. It was a little different seeing the text in the middle of the screen, rather then the box at the bottom with an accompanying icon, but the added cinematic space was well worth it.
I didn't use a spell checker, but before I submit, I make go over it to make sure I haven't made any grammar mistakes.
Hope you enjoy the other episodes!
I rate you not on your animation, or your ability to draw, but your ability to express. I'm impressed that you threw your emotions onto canvass and allowed the world to see them! I must say that there aren't a whole lot of movies like this on NG. People are becoming desensitized to violence, suffering, and emotion. I commend you on your work and your ability to shine a glimmer of hope through the trash and rubble of portal entries.
Decent Video, You put up a good Point
The video was meaningful, however, biased. I enjoy sprite animations, but of course, not all. This is the same with sticks, clocks, 3D attempts, and any other forms of animation that are butchered by would-be animators. You did a wonderful job, the text speed is much more readable than most other formats. On a side note, what's with the:
Was that intentional to have the double-meaning of having the viewer to both have the option to replay the movie, as well as encourage him/her to reply with a review? I look forward to seeing more of your work, I always love watching animations from people I'm on the same wavelength with.
Thanks for the review Ryan4Ever
I appreciate the positive overall 9 and I'm really glad you like the flash. Be on the look out for my new movie "Recollection" that will be comming out soon. (Hard to work on it right now but it will contain some more humour for those who like my humour.)
About the Replay buttons Hehe I just felt like button the Y on the bottom cuase it looked more meaningful hehe Im not sure.
Once again, Thanks :)
Fantastic Music Video
The audio and video meshed perfectly in most parts. The frame by frame animation was carried out flawlessly by all animators. Together, all of the participating authors created a work of art with vibrant color, and the utmost randomness. Too much randomness I'm afraid. The song warranted for the joyful prancing of the boy and girl, and the growth, and color of the trees. However, I was truly disgusted by the suicide and torture in the movie by Livecorpse. It seemed a bit out of place.
Yea, random was to be expected when you have 4 authors animating on what comes into thier mind when they hear thier piece of the song.
The joful skipping of the boy and girl to the growth of the trees was my part. (Happiness and just plain fun came to my mind) Glad you liked it :)
And yes most get disgusted by some of livecorpse graphics, but he does have talent and does have an original way of animating.
The group thanks you for your positive review :)
Better than the First
The fight scenes were really well done, however, the conversations were not. Profanity is truly not necessary in any DBZ tributes. You didn't do as bad a job as most animators, but try to run all your text by a spell checker before you submit anything.
