Halo Reach just came out and I thought I'd commemorate the occasion with a cartoon about how AMAZING IT IS OH MY GOOODDDDDD
ps I've never played it.
Thanks to Xenogenocide for his amazing track "Riding on the Edge!!"
Egoraptor is an undying flame. He hasn't lost an ounce of the wit and charm that filled Metal Gear Awesome with such wonder and glee four years ago.
Up and Down
Straight off to give credit where it's due, your animating skills have improved through the Awesome series and have gone from intentionally sketchy caricatures to a more honed distinctive style.
Now, seriously, what was this? Something like Halo, with enough mockable material at hand, should have wound up being better than this. I get that this was more aiming to lampoon the fanbase, and hype culture in general rather than the game, but even that was pretty weak. I though the psyche up was just a lead in, but once the random shapes and stupid noises ended it was over. The problem there is that a fanbase being psyched isn't specific to Halo, it can relate to almost any popular new release whether its Uncharted, GOW, Dead Space, etc. I know Reach is subjective because its new and Halo fans can straight out be scary, but it didn't really go anywhere. Just adding something simple like the disk breaking by accident before being able to play, or the wrong game disk being the box would have at least given some structure. Hell, even the dated red circle of doom appearing could have capped it easily enough.
I'm really not sure if you just flat out couldn't be bothered with this one, the fact you didn't play the game more or less says that. I haven't played it either, but Halo is a pretty generic franchise that is pretty easy to parody, and you could have done something a lot better. Instead there's this, and it's just meh. Ironically this'll probably be hated by the Egofans who will be just as hyped over this as your Halofans here. Who knows, maybe that was your real parody here?
Some actual game parody or critique would have been nice?
Words can't describe how I'm feeling, but I'm pretty sure it was an awesome positive feeling.
This is why I love the Awesome Series.
Ever since MGA, I've often wondered where you would go. And frankly, you've raised the bar with each and every single other toon from therein. Egoraptor, keep up the ass kickin' work!
