Thank you so much!
I'm a few days late, but it doesn't make the flash less interesting! I found it quite funny and I had been wondering what the theme would be... It's awesome! Also, it's pretty cool how I literally ROCKED NYC =P
Thanks for this flash Bahamut, and I hope I'll be able to make you a flash as well, and in time!
Yay, you're back! <3
I'm surprised I hadn't reviewed this one yet... The single most controversial flash on Newgrounds. I've enjoyed this flash movie a lot over the times it has been here, and I will continue to do so, undoubtedly. Its graphical simplicity is a pleasing to the eye, and the silence that accompanies it only emphasis the overwhelming marvelousness.
Graphics - 10 - A red Times New Roman capital B. Estimated size: 3 cm height, 2.5 cm width. Relative position (h/v): 0.37/0.4. These measures stroke with the golden ratio like no other work ever did, and is therefor the single most enjoyable graphical work ever produced.
Style - 10 - B.
Sound - 10 - Only a silence as perfect as the one in this movie is worthy of being included in it.
Violence - 10 - Just a bare eyed look at this work matches a triple rape of about 35 minutes.
Interactivity - 10 - Have fun with your B.
Humor - 10 - I lol'd.
I will now proceed and look at this masterpiece some more. You get a 5/5 and a 10/10.
Fuck this shit.
This is, without doubt the greatest, most action packed, and funniest sprite movie I have ever seen. And trust me, I have seen many. It combined everyone's favourite heroes, with the cute Yoshis and those umh... Axem dudes or what are they :P
Sprites. Nice... This movie's sprites. AWESOME. I have never seen a movie with as many sprites as this one had. Mario and Luigi really had TONS of positions and moves, there were a bunch of different explosions, and so many characters!
Another stunning element were the "3D" parts where the cam turns around the scene. I couldn't have done it better.
SO. MUCH. ACTION!! This was better than a real Dragon Ball Z episode. DBZ isn't actually good, but this sure was ;)
Everything was included: the fights, the worrying cutscenes, the search for the Chaos Emeralds, everything. By the way, good mix between story and action, this is exactly the way I like it.
I didn't really pay special attention to the sound FX, but I though there were more than enough. Maybe you used only 3, as I said I didn't really listen for that. I COULD watch it again. But I won't do it now. Don't take this bad, but the movie was SO long :P How long is it exactly? 15 minutes? 20? But that doesn't matter now, I'll just watch it again tomorrow then...
The music was awesome, too. It supported the fighting well, thanks to its epic, fast style. Also, nice use of looping!
Nothing special to say about the voices. They were very good, and funny. That's it :P
I'm not going to say a lot about this part. There was more violence than I've seen in a whole month. I'm not a great fan of violence, actually, but this is a special violence. I don't find it violent. I don't know why. Oh well...
Can't actually blame you for not making it more interactive than the space bar. After all, it's a movie and not a game. You get an 8!
Oh, shit. I mean, in my pants. Some of the dialogues were EXTREMELY funny. The Luigi-Mario interaction was great too. I can't remember too much for the moment, I'm still stunned by the awesomeness of the movie...
MAYBE one. I didn't like the square you put on top of the ?-block Mario stood one when the cam turned around. It was too... drawn.
I'm serious, this is the ONLY thing I found you can improve.
Final Judgement: This goes straight to my favourites. Advice: get yourself a job in the cartoon business. You're gonna get rich. Maybe. I don't know. I have to... I... Excuse me. I think...
YOU GET A 5/5 AND A 10/10!! CONGRATULATIONS!!
This was probably the most awesome birthday Flash ever made! Again, thanks for doing this. You might want to check the Portal on your birthday too ;) (even though neither of us will be home and shit. I'll find something).
Graphics - 10 - Oh look! It's me! Awesome!
Style - 10 - Bahamut Flashes for the WIN!
Sound - 10 - A reference to Lamb of God is enough to me.
Violence - 10 - I felt like rating everything 10. Don't ask why...
Interactivity - 10 - I like those new "Facts and crap" you add to your movies. Keep doing that!
Humor - 10 - I DID laugh throughout the whole flash.
What else is there to say? 5/5 and 10/10!
"Thank you so much!"
You're welcome. :)
"This was probably the most awesome birthday Flash ever made!"
Definitely the most awesome birthday Flash for YOU! But most awesome birthday Flash ever made, I don't want to say which one.
"Again, thanks for doing this."
"You might want to check the Portal on your birthday too ;)"
There might be a Bahamut N' koreaman 02 on that day.
"Graphics - 10 - Oh look! It's me! Awesome!"
Yeah, it's you! :D
"Style - 10 - Bahamut Flashes for the WIN!"
"Sound - 10 - A reference to Lamb of God is enough to me."
And my voice. :D
"Violence - 10 - I felt like rating everything 10. Don't ask why..."
Because it's your flash and we will kill everyone who doesn't listen to Lamb of God. >:)
"Interactivity - 10 - I like those new "Facts and crap" you add to your movies. Keep doing that!"
They will be used on other flashes of mine, but not on EVERY future flash of mine, though.
"Humor - 10 - I DID laugh throughout the whole flash."
"What else is there to say? 5/5 and 10/10!"
That's the votes everyone should give this flash.
Thanks for that awesome review Casualty!
I love your cartoons!
Seriously! Those short little things you make are entertaining =P
I just love how your characters don't seem to care and how they just walk around like that. Also, the way you animate is very expresessive which adds even more style to the cartoon.
Graphics - 10 - Your usual graphics, which I like. Keep 'em like that! =) The backgrounds were remarkably nice too, this time.
Style - 10 - That's your strong point! The funny way of moving of the characters, their expressions, all perfect.
Sound - 9 - Again, sound FX would've been nice even though I understand it would be pretty hard to find effects that fit with the cartoon itself as well as with the music. Talking about the music, nice choice again!
Violence - 7 - You even drew blood! Hahaha, no there's no real violence but who cares about that anyway...
Interactivity - 7 - Your fine buttons were handy again. Thanks!
Humor - 9 - What can I say... it was funny... Yeah, I liked how the situation gets further and further from the goal but flips at the end, that's quite funny.
Summary: Yay! I like your cartoons and style, and you should keep making stuff!
Judgment: 5/5 and 10/10! Congrats!
Whoa! Thank again for the great review! It really means a lot! I'm glad you liked the cartoon. I love the way you review stuff and make fair comments on all the criteria so that I can see where my strengths and weaknesses are. This kind of review is invaluable and I must thank you again! I wish there were more people like you spending time on what they write. I owe you big time, buddy!
Even better than all previous editions.
You guys did an excellent job, a better job than previous AFD's, in my opinion. It was slightly longer, and instead of putting everything in, this time I saw ONLY quality work! Every part was different too. I the other AFD episodes, everyone got about the same part.
Graphics - 10 - As I said EVERY single piece was of great quality. No exception.
Style - 10 - AFD style! Will never be beaten.
Sound - 10 - I'm not a big fan of Limp Bizkit (even though he's in every AFD XD) but I love Slayer and Static-X, and I sure enjoy Rage Against The Machine.
Violence - 12 - Violence, the specialty of AFD, and there's plenty too this time!
Interactivity - 10 - Beautiful menu, and full of features. I liked the movie info and the fact that every user said what they killed made it easier to review =P
Humor - 10 - Your Tankmen part was really funny, and as usually in AFD it's a calmer part between two blasts! Great!
Parts I REALLY liked:
Your Tankmen part - As I said it's silence during the storm. I love that.
PimpinJ (Castlecrashers) - Oh, how I laughed here. Really funny how the little green dude comes up. One of the best parts!
Moosh (Lilium) - I never liked that Flash anyway =P
TrippingMetal (SOAP) - This was, in my opinion, the best part. The presentation, the arrival of the AFD balloon, the bomb, and a final phrase. Perfect.
Helbereth (Snake/Optimus) - The longest part, probably. This one was really well animated, and was impressive at the end.
Wasamonster (NAVY commercial) - Another funny part! Nice comments from the sniper dude!
Reyals (Johnny Rocketfinger) - One of the best parts, too. Really funny how you make a menu similar to the game, really!
You know.... Maybe I'll re-join for the next AFD, because this movie sure convinced me to do it! I don't see why I quit in the first place!
Anyway congrats to all and I hope you get lots of cool awards and possibly front page, too. At least I expect you to get front page, because this is a respected NG collab, and it keeps getting better. So it's time people hear about it!
You get a 13/10 review and a 7/5 review (I hacked the NG system, so don't worry about the scores).
So expect to see me for the next issue!
A work that can only be made by a God...
... for I laughed so hard. I had complaints from people living 3 miles away, and now my whole fucking village "fucking hates me". But I don't care. Not at all. I will now be able to spend my last days (thus, thousands of days) watching this movie in a loop. I can't wait until the 3rd episode comes out!
Graphics - 10 - The godly image of Bahamut is enough to score 15/10 on this category.
Style - 10 - The style of this movie is so divine that words would befoul it.
Sound - 10 - The speakonia voices made it 10 times funnier. And it's not really sound but an Iron Maiden poster and a Slayer mention are positive points too =P
Violence - 10 - Sex. Murder. Art.
Interactivity - 10 - This movie was made a way so genius that even watching it was interactive.
Humor - 9^9^9/10 - Because I laughed from the first to the last second.
So that gives you an average of about 99999999/5, but I'll just vote 5 ok?
"A work that can only be made by a God..."
I am the King of Dragons, so I agree with that.
" I can't wait until the 3rd episode comes out!"
Coming soon whenever I can be arsed to make a third episode. I have other stuff to make for now. Again, whenever I bother to make them.
"And it's not really sound but an Iron Maiden poster and a Slayer mention are positive points too =P"
You might've went far too hyper if there was Lamb of God here.
"Sex. Murder. Art."
"Humor - 9^9^9/10"
That fucked my calculator.
"So that gives you an average of about 99999999/5, but I'll just vote 5 ok?"
Should've voted 6.
Thanks for that crazy review Casualty. :O
That was extreme yes. And really fast paced, as I like it. I liked the Thwomps coming from everywhere and smashing stuff, as well as the total randomness of events. Like when at once he gets shot to an other stage or he uses the princess to stop the bullet. Stuff like that. People like that. I even thought it was a bit like a Monty Python animated sequence.
Another good point is, you used a lot of different sprites.
Graphics - 10 - Sprites are always good, especially if it are Mario sprites, and if they look just as they were still in the game.
Style - 10 - Extreme hardcore ultra Mario ass kicking, yes sir!
Sound - 8 - Maybe you could've picked a heavier or more "action-packed" song, but this one was ok too. And it's regrettable there were no sound effects.
Violence - 10 - Could there be much more? No.
Interactivity - 6 - 6 as in 666, the number of the BEAST.
Humor - 10 - HAHAHA seriously I laughed.
What YOU get:
request for the Mario collection
Uhhh.. Someone enjoyed your movie?
Thank you for the in depth review! I appreciate them! I was gonna add sound effects, but... i didn't :P
That was really nice to watch, and when you think about it it's true.
I liked the style you used, with the backgrounds moving instead of the person, and that fits perfectly with the type of movie you brought here.
The little people looked funny, and that was a great idea for this style of cartoon too.
Graphics - 10 - What you need for this video.
Style - 10 - Well, I loved it.
Sound - 10 - Again, it's the type of music I'd have used too.
Violence - 8 - Some violence, but that's not what it's all about huh.
Interactivity - 6 - ...
Humor - 9 - I realized death isn't too bad after all and.. and... /cuts self HAHAH no it was funny too
So you get 5/5 and a lot of cheers!
But the best thing about this flash is.... THE LAMB OF GOD LYRICS.
GOODNESS GRACIOUS I WAS HOPING SOMEONE WOULD NOTICE
