VG Exiles - Episode 3: SHADOWLAWLESS

After two years, the long-awaited VG Exiles Episode 3 is finally here!

Now boasting the incredible art direction of CE-RAP, this episode represents the first step of an evolutionary leap for the series. It's been a long and perilous journey, but now CE-RAP and I are ready to dazzle you with a flash unlike any you have ever seen before!

It's long, huge, and EXTRAORDINARILY graphic intensive, so make sure that you see it on a good computer with a good connection. Also make sure that you have a comfortable seat, because this baby runs for half an hour!

I must thank Tom Fulp for allowing this video to premiere here on Newgrounds. To my knowledge, it is the largest flash submission in the history of this site! So... be patient with that loading bar...

Finally, I must thank the many voice actors who so generously helped CE-RAP and I tell this story:


It's about time I got this out, huh?

(Oh, and if anybody knows the song playing in the Shadowlaw scene, please note me in a PM and I'll credit it here. I lost the info when my computer died a few months ago.)



CE-Rap says the following---

I just wanted to personally thank Tom Fulp for giving us the green light. This size is pretty much gonna be a standard for every episode now, so Tom---thank you.

A very big thank you to all the rabid fans! Your comments are awesome, your support is humbling, and your words are endearing. Thanks for never giving up on R1, and thanks for making me feel at home on this site.

A BIGLY-HUGELY-BIG thanks to ALL our fantastic voice actors. All of you deserve a standing ovation for bringing emotion to the sprites and my artwork. I sincerely look forward to working with you guys in the future. Joshua is the only one I've spoken to personally, thus far, so a special shout out to him for coming through in a pinch.

I know I can get wordy so lemme just say this last part and I'll leave you guys to watch this in peace. When R1 and I first started this in April, he was of the mind that I was just supplying simple pictures. Neither one of us EVER expected this current juggernaut of an episode---the genesis of what we believe will be one of the best Flash series on Newgrounds, period. He took heed to my belief that this series could be legendary and the man deserves ALL DUE credit for keeping up with my never-ending and ever expanding imagination-which, as he has learned, moves at FTL speeds. This release cements the birthplace of a truly beautiful partnership. I am proud to know him, proud to work with him, and proud to call him my friend.

Cheers to you, "Riggie."

A Line in the Sand

I have to say, i love this, not to dis your previous artist, but it was kinda of like playing a Playstation 1 game; you can't differentiate a face from an ass. but holy-WOW this was amazing! the Combat Scene was great. Smooth, flashy, nostalgic, very nice. but i have to say it was short; not bashing it all, after all: Less is More. but i say short because you focused the bulk of this episode on story and background within the film instead of leaving it to some side bar (which I'm sure everyone still read) and i say "A Line in the Sand" because this episode may not be considered "The Best" but its a setting stone for where your going with your idea. Your making your own series and "Fan-Fiction" would be a fucking insult to all of your guy's work. Your fan base is going to go from broad Sprite-Fight lovers, to the people who care more than who's up next to fight. thats why the score may not be VG 2, but its its own beast now. Since I see the love for MGS is noticeable in the details, perhaps your ending theme should have been "The Best Is Yet To Come" because we can all see that from these 30 min of Newgrounds History. Best of luck Masters of Montage.

P.s. One bad thing about this is that you really played up the blood bath goryness of this ep. and i have to say it wasn't that Messy. That is all. - Manghuelo

You did a great job on the cut scenes and the fight was pretty good, but this got VERY boring after 15 mins.....

Nicely Done

What I want to say first and foremost, is that this flash wins epicly simply because of the sweet-ass Equilibrium reference you ever-so skillfully placed in it along with with twin-P90s serving as one of the best hits in the fight(OPEN WIDE, MOTHAFUKKAAA!!), let alone every other fine quility of this flash.

But it's not perfect. DAMN NEAR CLOSE, THOUGH!!

The fight. I won't go so far as to say short, but it did feel a little undeveloped. I remember you mentioning you were getting the hang of the characters' fighting methods way back when. I was seeing such progress as the fight unfolded, but I think it stopped a little prematurely. I think you could've gone deeper with Bison's skills; I was suprised to see that psycho ball attack thing only twice, for starters. It all made it look like Bison died fairly quick; all Striker needed was a different gun in his hands every few seconds. I didn't fully get the feel of him being a cheap douche he's famous for in the games. In fact, it simply felt as though he was trying his best to survive. Basically, I feel that Bison's fighting could've been fleshed out a bit more before he died. I was hoping he'd outdo Gambit in glorious technique, but he didn't come close.

The cutscenes. Very well done. I was interested in the story regardless of artstyle and all that, but improvements are improvements. I would've settled for still frames, but obviously C-Rap wrote the term "Initiative" in the dictionary. And that's awesome. Moving parts kept my already-high interest soaring along with the art style. NEKKID WIMENZ ROXX 2 BRAH.

I was happy to hear Tolbain's voice, it's a great voice, as well as Striker's voice. Nash's VA didn't do too well at conveying emotion like the art did, so it was really akward listening to him. And then, I'm god-damn tired of Jill's VA, but I guess she's the only female VA around? I don't dislike her, it's just....EVERYWHERE. Bison's VA. superb job. felt really legit. I wouldn't mind hearing him in the games.

Overall, a 9 out of ten. Everything was a step up from pt.2, except M. Bison's skill, which was terribly disappointing to me. You said that this was your Dream match-up, R1665, so I thought I was going to see enough of these two fighters to go, "Hey. any of these two fighters,....could totally whoop Gambit's ass!!!" Sadly, I cannot say that with confidence.

Frankly, I'm waiting for that one guy who looks strong enough to wipe that grim cockiness from Cage's face to show up. But I'm sure everything will be revealed in all due time.
