When I brought them in I think you were doing sales, I kept popping in every so often during the 3 days. But you were always too busy talking to someone or not at the booth.

Starogre (Jon) posted news and pictures from PAX and Glaiel posted tidbits as well. All three of us ended up with the flu, apparently there was a swine flu outbreak in Seattle so I might get checked out today.

I think its kinda funny.. but not seeing as today I'm having the worst syptoms of a flu of some sort. I pretty sure we're just sick from all that nerd air since it was sold out this year.

Woo, some fame is now mine!

Thanks for making people aware of it - I'm really looking forward to seeing what the Flash community can make of these 70 vocal entries. Plenty of variety there, so don't be afraid to have a dig down and get to the good stuff. They are not arranged in an order of personal preference, merely that they are in order that they were submitted.

hi

'lu, and thanks :)

Doesn't seem to be a whole lot on there (only one PO3 game?), but I suppose that it's too early to tell for some games, and that a lot of PO3 projects have been cancelled even.

So, for restoring some credibility for myself and Newgrounds amongst my friends, I believe it should win some sort of bonus prize.

You're kidding, right? Despite the fact it was nominated 2 months in a row, the voicework was so bland and boring that it sucked the life out of the whole thing.

Also, Anusboy deserved a lot better.

Didn't actually get an official test but it was assumed not to be swine flu since I don't have a fever, although I did read on-line afterwards that sometimes it doesn't include a fever... Whatever the case I'll get better.

Dick Neck: Origins made #11 in top movies of the month! That's motivation enough to strive for something greater in the near future.

My analysis on the Best of August

http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/50 9092

I know this was a given, but it definitely deserved to win by far. It's nice to see this made the top.

http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/51 0074

This is probably what disappointed me the most. It pretty much recycled all of the jokes from the previous one, and topped it off with horrible timing and unoriginal execution. NOt to mention that it dragged on forever. The art was pretty good, but that's honestly all I could credit it with.

http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/50 6135

I have to admit that I was never really into Biff's flashes at first, but this was a pretty pleasant surprise. The humor was the best he's made of anything he's done. It felt a bit bland in areas, but it was still okay overall.

http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/50 7424

Another pleasant Clock Day flash by Munglai. It wasn't as good as his others, but I still enjoyed it very much, and I was glad to hear that it won Clock Day

http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/50 6191

This is one of those few video game related flashes that I enjoyed all the way through. The jokes played excellent homage to the classic Disney shorts, and the animation was superb. I wished it placed a little higher, and I'm surprised it wasn't also considering its subject matter.

The only flash under the Top 5 that I wish placed higher was AnusboyII. Otherwise, there isn't much else.


:P

Sounds like a load of fun!

Not to mention Tyler's game was the only one to have a small segment on X-Play! Not that anyone cares, with G4's decreasing quality, but it's still worth a mention!


Thanks aplenty to Phobotech for the great user icon.
