This was my first animation I've done. I submitted it a couple weeks back, and was so happy to read everyone's comments and feedback. I decided to take some of your advice and revise a few things. Including the lip synching and audio levels. I also added a menu and got rid of the annoying loops. Thanks to everyone for your advice!

As a gamer, I decided to create this short piece, as I'm sure any long time gamer can relate to it. Like most of you, I've purchased the latest and greatest gaming consoles and titles since I first got a Super Nintendo back in the early 90's. But even with today's technology, nothing beats the nostalgia of the games you grew up on. This is a homage to those games. Whatever they may be for you.

Pretty Good

This flash is pretty well written, had a small but good selection of music, and was overall enjoyable. On the other hand the lack of a loading bar for a 8.5MB flash was kind of annoying, and when Master Chief appears the noise is too loud. Those are pretty minor cons and can be fixed easily.

For next time I would suggest making the visuals a little more diverse (use hand gestures and different camera angles etc), and just keep on practicing your voice acting (it was a little dry this time around).

But overall I say great job on your first flash, I'm a sucker for Nintendo nostalgia.

Brilliant!!

It's such a simple flash but it just manages to connect to me in such a subtle but awesome way!

It's funny because I can relate to all of this, there are times when I would just bust out an old gaming console and play old games! This game in particular I manage to beat a few times a year just because I love it. Mario RPG is an amazing game and you honestly couldn't have picked a better game or song from that game for this animation!

On the plus side:
+Like I said I loved the game and song you picked so thats one
+The humor is on a good level and I liked how you meshed the old and new generations of gaming to add to the humor.(Master Chief criticizing Mario RPG)

On the negative:
-The animation is kind of low grade as far as visual appeal go
-There are some long pauses between some of the speaking

So thats the low down I gotta admit I liked this a lot!

This is soooo true!

While the animation wasn't that great, the overall story and sharing the effing goodness that is Super Mario RPG with today's gamers is worth it! If today's gamers would check out some classics, they could see what other great games they are missing out on!

I would totally give you a knuckle bump or high five over this! =)
