I wanted to try my hand at a typography animation, so I figured I'd give it a whirl with one of my favorite voice acting tracks in the audio portal: Dmac's "Dot Dot Dot", based on a review of Super PSTW Action RPG, created by Rhete.

* Thanks a million, Tom, for the FP! :D
** The background track is from Carl Orff's 'O Fortuna' (1935)

Here's the ACTUAL review by axman13, beautiful misspellings and all (which was deleted, sadly):


i reley dont wan to say this, but i have to now.
this game is so esey. i mean, all you do is hit the spacebar. thats it! how is this an RPG anyway? you cant contrail anything but what it says on the screen! what if i didnt want to buy the potion? what apout quests? all you can upgrade is stranth? there is no way you can lose to the boss at the end! this game is crap! its not even an RPG at all! i mean look at it! in what way is this supposed to be an RPG if you can do quests and stuff? all you do is press one butten the entier time! explain to me! the athore coments al totol lies! is it supposed to be stick dudes? i dont even know how this damn game got the daily 3rd prize, or a rating of 4.26!
pepole think this review is worthles.
go ahead! say it! i dont care! im just trying to make a point here!
blam this piece of crap!!!!

P.S the only reson im giving this a 1 is beacuase the voices where pretty good. but thats it!"



Rated 2 / 5 stars

Not worth it's status.

The motion graphics are good, and the voice over is cheeky, but I wouldn't watch this more than once. It's a parody with little else going for it. Is this all people want? It's just inbred humor that goes no further than the span of a website or two, and I have seen much more interesting stuff just in the last few days.

Honestly, it's this kind of stuff, in my own humble, that brings down the community because it focuses on a niche comic element, promoting spoof and insult over creativity and... art! Sure, motion graphics and typography are an art form, no doubt about it, but that's really all there is to this.

So to everyone submitting original ideas that appeal to broader, higher-brained themes, only to find yourself not matching up to this video in the polls, just keep on doing what you're doing because most other areas of life outside of Newgrounds and internet chatrooms will probably appreciate your work more.

I had to look all over the reviews to see if Axman13 said anything about this and sadly i didn't find him =(. I'm not going to give you a lot of credit though, all you did is add writeing and music but you did good on the music so i'm giveing you a 5 as a vote because i do just love this but a 4 on the rating due to the fact you didn't do much to the audio track and i'm going to give a 5 and 10 to the acuall track.


Rated 2 / 5 stars

good job 2,628 newgrounds users

one of the highest initial ratings in the portal's history for tweened text synced to a a humorless readout of a humorless review; bravo, bravo

RicePirate responds:

I could understand ragging on the flash, I could even understand thinking the review was ridiculous, but "humorless readout"..? That surprises me. Humor is subjective, I suppose.


Rated 1.5 / 5 stars

Your powerpoint presentation is too highly ranked

An epic voice but why dont you start making flash instead of using microsoft office equipment. Wasted talent.


Rated 1.5 / 5 stars

Funny, but a bit far?

Nice video, good voice over personage. Animation, brilliant. But the cause, I don't know. Maybe its just me but I can't help feeling that however good the game may have been but to not only criticise someone who didn't like the game, to actually go as far as making a however well made video to make him a laughing stock of an popular website, maybe is going a bit too far?
Still, good game, good video, good job all round

RicePirate responds:

I find it interesting when viewers consider this an attack on an attacker. The point was maybe a fraction directed at axman, but mostly about dmac's reading of the review. I feel like axman represents an entire group of people.
