It had potential, and the artwork and animation were both really good. However the punchline was rather... lacking.
Perhaps make it more clear in the end that the one character is upset, or angry or whatever, and have the kick a little more impactful. A bigger sound, a scream of agony from the abusee. Something just to make it really stand out and pop. As it is, it just kind of goes on without drawing much attention to itself.
The rest of it was pretty good though.
most ppl commented on the punch, guess i rlly haf to work hard on em next time.. :)
I have to say, that on a primarily English Website, a soundless flash with words that are done all in another language will loose a massive user base. I can't really tell what's going on, for even though the graphics and animation themselves seem pretty good, there's no voice or English translation to move the story along.
Yes i know! but just wait a couple days! and finally the episodes will be have audio, tranlation and else....
The animation was very fluid, and a pleasure to watch. The art style really fit the piece, with a great clash of colour. Finally and perhaps most importantly, you've shown Nene in a light I've never seen before. Very well done to everyone involved with this project. Thank you for sharing.
In a lot of ways, this reminded me of the best part of the bar scene in Heavy Metal 2000. You did a good job in the animation and everything ran pretty smoothly. nothing appeared weird (unless it was supposed to), but was all rather natural considering.
Sounds were good, but it would have been nice to have voices fitting the various characters, rather than sound clips. Especially the over used Hydralisk one.
My only big negative remark had no impact on your score, and others will hate me for this, even you, but why the stripperific outfit? I mean I know it was half the draw of the animation, but as an assassin, you'd think she'd be a bit more covered to hold a bit more gear, and high heels really isn't fun to run around in, especially in a combat situation.
Good message, good piece
Message aside your actual animation quality was really good, whenever you were not borrowing from other sources. However, your use of these other sources only strengthened the message itself and so turned out rather well. Sound quality was good, music was appropriate, and you even managed to mix in a bit of humour along with the seriousness of the topic.
As to the message itself, I completely agree. I was lucky to have cut myself away from video game addiction at an early age whilst still enjoying them for entertainment. Me and friends have often gathered to play "couch co-op" because its something fun to do together. Me and my girlfriend often share stories about what we're doing in Dragon Age. But at the same time, we both have jobs, we both have families, and we both have friends that like to see us, and not our digital avatar. I am sorry for what games have cost you, but much like alcohol, video games are not evil, but rather the amount of use is. Just as you mentioned.
Good piece overall. Well done.
It was fairly amusing throughout the piece, however as Divergence said, each segment seemed fairly predictable. I knew Luigi wouldn't destroy the castle. Still, good use of sprites and sounds. Well done there.
However, you really need to work on your grammar. Throughout the text scrolling at the end I found numerous mistakes, and it just didn't go together well. I suggest either proof reading your work before submitting it, or have someone else proof read for you.
Yes, St. Patrick rid Ireland of snakes, but this simply used lines from a movie, with areally horribly dubbed in "Ireland" on top of sub-par animation, before going into a random song yelling "fuck you snakes". The song wasn't even catchy. Could have been much better.
Oh no maybe that's the joke
You script was excellent, with a great ending and message to the viewer. The voice acting was very appropriate for the tone, and the black and white imagery, replaced by the vivid colours for the dream sequence was brilliant.
All in all, well done.
The imagery combined with music produced something so very touching, and to me, heart wrenching. The feelings expressed here were deep wells, and I don't think I've seen anything like it here on Newgrounds.
I hope she forgave.
I was expecting a virus or something, but when the CDs popped out, I had myself a good laugh.
Again, same with your Pelican short, the art is good, and the music just adds to the mood and theme of it all. Good short.
