Wow this took some time. Started in December but school held me back. Also I just recently abandoned working with tweening symbols and went straight for FBF so I'm still working out all the kinks. Also many video references were made to make realistic animation movements.

I'm mostly satisfied with how everything turned out and I'm going to continue working with FBF to make this a kick ass series!

Thanks to: RedHarvest, Ptcfast, drspizzah21, mikejames123, and ZackF - for the bike designs, sorry I stole them :(

wow don't get me wrong, but not that impressive...

Once again, the increasing good quality and finesse in your flash work is becoming evident, well done :) But as always, there is quite alot of work left to do...

The first thing hard to miss about your latest episode is the great improvement in your animation, not fuzzy, quite clear and the character movement was pretty slick...however there was still alot of choppiness evident. But I think that this was mainly due to the to and fro movement between the Omega and Trask story-lines...and that this choppiness was particularly evident with the varying music, the music just didnt complement one another...the soft background music with the Omega fight scenes just didnt work out with the loud soudtrack with Trask vs. Zeke...of course there is a way to make this work...but I'll leave it to you to figure it out :3

This also leads to me pointing out another issue as a viewer...I am still way too confused with the story...I can get as much as good guy beat bad guy...but the flash forwards and backwards from differing events is quite confusing...and no offence i dont really want to watch over the previous episodes to try and figure out what is really going on...

Otherwise I quite like it, you're certainly picking up the quality of your work and by far you haven't dimished the promise of this becoming an awesome series :) keep it up, and let's see what you can come up with next!

ive noticed youve reviewed a couple of my other stuff and i was hoping you'd get around to this one :)

don't even bother going back to figure out the story lol theres a huge gap in a alot of places. trust me this episode is not that much more complicated than bad guy vs good guy so dont worry bout it ;) just think of these two storys as different storys that happen at similar times - theres a good guy who beats up a bad guy thats about it

future stories should make more sense lol thanks for the review and i hope i only even improve more from here, for me and the viewer :))

pretty awesome

you have lots of potential, would love to see more from you :)
This video was very good, but at the same time also a bit rough and unpolished, plenty of room to improve things.

The main flaw for me was the pacing of the whole thing. There were a bit too many moments when people would just stand looking at each other, pauses in conversation, etc. Certainly pauses for dramatic tension can be great, but i think you overused the effect a little.

The quality of your animation was also pretty good, but the poses left something to be desired. The fight scenes with the guy in the blue omega suit were a perfect example of the good and the flawed in one, the way he moved seemed very realistic and natural, but he often ended up stopping in poses that didn't look so natural, and would be hard to balance in.

Would love to see what you come out with next :)

WOW!

unreal man - this is SUCH a huge improvement from the last episodes! seriously i loved it! the video referencing was really nice - and the new characters with the gang feud was a nice touch for the story - -I think the only improvements i would make is with human sfx - for the next episode i think you should try to include more "fighting grunts ect" to make the fights more believable - - anyways - the toon was awesome! and although Tec is dead - - i would love to pick up another voice heheheh - laterz

pretty gud

Put more detail in your backgrounds, and add some background music to fight scenes would of gave it a more theatrical mood. overall looks very promising. More make episodes :)
