This reminds me of "A Clockwork Orange"...
...What I mean is, you try and get into the head of those two children in order to show us that, despite the fact that they were cold-blooded murderers, they believed that they were correct in their actions, and you did it in such a way as to make people believe that they were, in a way, correct. Now, I definitely don't condone murder, but you can't say you didn't at least feel an iota of sympathy for the two bastards. It's like Uriah said, something obviously hurt these children in such a way as to make them destroy those who they believed had wronged them.
Anyway, I love Flash movies which actually inform us of what's happening around us, or rather remind us that this stuff happens every day. It allows us to immerse ourselves in the violence, so that we may see the error of our ways-- so we can see that this BS is wrong. I think it's about damn time somebody did a Flash about Columbine. Excellnt animation. I like your style (but Pencil still pwns Paint Brush!), I loved how everything was so fluid and so emotional. You really helped show us how each of us has our inner demons, and extreme hatred. Much love, brah.
My God! I have met fear, and he wears a blue hat.
I laughed so hard at this one! My God, you are scary. I had nightmares about that corpse rape thing... ugh. But the tits thing made me laugh like hell! Ahahahaha! That... can't be a good sign. Laughing at The Milkman. Oh no. Anywho, keep it up. I just saw this for like... the 2000th time today. It never ceases to make me crack up like a moron.
Heh heh... breast milk. Aphex Twin scares me.
Not blamming it, but not likin' it
Alright, man. First off, I did like how you managed to animate the spites rather fluidly. BUT, I didn't really like how you actually made the noises into graphics, like in a comic book. You might as well have made it silent. Secondly, I found the humor sub-par. I mean, come on. No pun intended. Try making a real movie with subtle humor. I got tired of the whole sex-joke-as-a-punchline thing in the third grade. Make something more substantial, something more plot oriented or more relevant to the story, but funny or satirical at the same time. You didn't have a start button, so this ran like a loop. I didn't realize I was watching the same thing over and over again until the fourth view! Rather than remaking this, or making another one, try just making a new series. I'm sorry, but this is just not that good.
It kept me beggin' for more... like a dog...
I greatly enjoyed this RPG. I found it extremely challenging at points, and I got confuzed as to how to win a battle, but I found a way when I really tried. Some times I found myself playing it just because it frustrated me! I felt like I HAD to beat it! Now that's game design! I liked the design of the characters, as well. Very simple, very clean, almost cute, but effective in conveying the actions you take in the battle. I quite enjoyed the general design of the landscapes and the enemies, as well as the accessories, too. There were no problems with the sound, but I tend not to like video game music, or music which sounds as if it came from a video game. I've always wanted to play a video game with real music from actual artists in it, but whatever! (I gave you a 10 in humor because I'd feel guilty if I gave this great game a bad grade). I do have to admit, it does have its flaws. The enemies, as I said earlier, are quite aggrivating, and darn near impossible, but you can beat them if you play your cards right. Excellent.
Well, I'm thouroughly confuzzled...
There are three major problems here.
1) That music! You should give an option to change it, or turn it off! Not everybody likes to hear the same song loop roughly 1,000 times.
2) You can't change the background. Not a HUGE thing, but usually, one can change the BG and print off a pic of their creation to show off its coolness in many different ways depending on the BG.
3) I honestly coulnd't tell between the body and the head, or the arms and legs. As a matter of fact, I'm not even sure the darn thing had the option of giving your bot a body or legs. Correct me if I'm missing something, though.
You're quite talented, but you shouldn't make something which only focuses on your drawing skills. Because, although the animation itself is alright and stuff, there's no functionality. I can't tell up from down here. Seriously. You can do better.
It can really bring out the pyromaniac in ya!
My god! Amazing. Purely amazing. A bit repetitive, but addictive and fun. It's like my cursor is attracted to the "Restart" button, and won't get off! I love how y'all have the ability to make something so ferkin' monotonous and ridiculously simple so damn fun! Plus, Sparky is cute, even when he is setting buildings on fire. And the real topper is how you made it feel as if I could actually own a DS in real life (I don't have one... I know, I'm lame), right down to the second screen and how it helped display stats and freaky little anime DS dudes! The sound was a little annoying, but I have a bit of a headache at the moment. That's probably to blame. If I were well, I could very well give you a 10 up and down for each catagory. This really brightened my day!
Channeling a younger, wilder Vai, I'd say!
Save for the glaring lack of annoying tremolo-wank, I'd say this is near Steve Vai quality. It's heavy, very primal and visceral-- sexy in a macho sense. You seem to have a knack for pulling out some cogent, talkative riffs and just running with them. The improv sections (especially those screaming (pinch?) harmonics at the beginning) scream "hard rock 80's," minus the wild hair and homosexual undertones. It doesn't really get played out in my mind, it stays crisp and rockin' all the way through.
I'd work on trying to get a living, breathing, throbbing band together and just shredding like motherfuckers. Seriously.
10 stars, 5 points. Period.
thanks, i guess this is my bad horsie
and how do u know i don't have wild hair?
Great riff, wild improv!
You have some solid riffage going on here, my friend. The drumline, though a tad jagged, rocks enough to make up for the digital edge. The guit riff is thoroughly intense, and the improv laid on over it, although a tad choppy at times, is transporting and vivid. You have just the right balance between metal and psychedelic rock going on here, and it's definitely refreshing to hear. As a metal bassist, I'm saddened by the lack of a bassline-- or, if it's there, it's almost inaudible or it simply follows the root of each chord the rhythm guitar chops out. But the sheer impressiveness of the track makes up for that slight shortcoming. All in all, a solid work.
Here, I give it a 9 for the choppy improv, but it gets a 5 on the x/5.00 scale for sure!
A few personal gripes, but generally intense.
My with the bare rhythm section and the flow of the improvised guitar section.
Firstly, without the echo or reverb, the rhythm section falls a bit flat. When covering another song, you want to try to alter it to specifications which either amplify the emotions behind the track or which bring a whole new, vivid set of emotions into play. Without the robust sound of a 'verb pedal, everything-- once again-- falls flat. Also, even if you can't get a live recording of a bassline or solo, at least throw one in there. Bootsy and Laswell are key components of the Praxis arrangement!
Second, your rhythm's off in the improv section. It doesn't feel like it's off in a Frank Zappa xenochronic sense, ya' just missed a beat or two.
Lastly, as a closing note, you might want to extend the accompaniment loop so you can really let loose on the improv. Even if the rhythm's off, just letting yourself wander across your fretboard would fill this piece right up.
It's a damned good effort, but it could use a little work from my perspective.
yeah, it was a pretty quick thing i did, but you make a lot of good points. I probably wont revisit this again, but on the next cover i do, ill definitely keep these things in mind,
thanks for listening DeusExMagna
