UPDATE!!! One month since we loaded up our babbling dry humored baby and already at 200k views. Can't thank everyone enough for the support! We're currently working on our next project and it will be posted by this summer, around May 1st! It's a big undertaking so please be patient.

Hey Newgrounds!

This a parody that calls into question the procedure in which Batman gathers information from thugs on the where abouts of Riddler's secret trophies. We are a big fan of Batman Arkham City and fully endorse it as one of the best hero games out, and maybe of all games out right now! If you can find the secret easter egg, you'll see another game we're all about. These animations were made by gamers, for gamers! (With hope that we cater to all audiences as well.)

This is our first submission together to an already great website and we plan on making more! Hope you enjoy.

Special Thanks - Ashlee Freeman (Recording/Editing) Nicholas Deary (Editing/Clean up) DJ Irvine (Voice Acting) The Au and Carl's Family (for constant support) God (because everyone thanks him) and especially Tom Fulp for providing such a sweet site to share animation. *brown nose, brown nose, brown nose.*

Enjoy and thanks for the views, reviews and votes !


P.S. Loving the mixed reviews whether they are good or bad as long as they are thoughtful.
Also, thanks for front paging us Tom Fulps and the Newgrounds Crew.

HOLY COW! 50,000+ views! We hadn't anticipated our first animation to get this much feed back and coverage. Thanks to everyone for their support! Even the bad reviews were views! This is more than we could ever ask for. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!

Our first Flash and 100k Views?! WHAT?! If we knew that many people were going to watch this we would've hired professional voice actors! Haha. But honestly, thank you so much for your support and views! Couldn't have asked for a better debut to one of our favorite websites.

Ok, some constructive criticism:

I don't care what anyone else says about this, but this was good! Very good. I very much liked the art style employed here, it added to that cartoonish style of the video. The expressions used matched the point of said "goofiness". The bat crayon part was funny, and I am sure others have mentioned the timing. I personally believe the timing was perfect, and the delivery could have been a bit better. you know, the over the top presentation effect. I love how you took one of the most manly, serious heroes and made him look...well...flat out funny (in a good way I mean). The dark knight is pretty good at makin us laugh.

As for the BGM, I found it pretty fitting. I found the contrast between the mood of the short and the ambience of the music pretty fitting, even if it was only for a few seconds. The Voice acting was nice, but could be a bit "smoother", know what I mean? However, it was still of very good quality. The length of the flash was decent, but I felt as if it dragged on very slightly, but it was still fun to watch through and through.

You have amazing talent, and I hope to see more of this! Keep doing what your doing, it is working very nicely!

With that, my 10-5 is well placed.

Wow! I don't know what to say. Everything you mentioned are serious issues with us as well, but that fact that you still gave us 10-5 means a lot! This is our first animation, so we're not sure why people are holding us to some unforeseen standard of excellence. We put a lot of time and effort into the animation, but the voices were recorded with some drunk friends at a party. We'll be more professional next time!

Again thanks for the well thought out review. We'll continue to grow and produce work and we hope to see you back with your honest and constructive criticism! :D

Oh god the voice acting...

Not only is this an awful parody long after the fact; but the presentation made it worse. What with the awful mic. quality, choppy animation, forced tongue-in-cheek voice acting, and the unprompted retarded goofiness of the writing.

Why the repeated unnecessary injection of "Arkham City" into the dialogue? To remind us what game it was based on just in case how generic this was made us forget?

The bat crayons was clever, but the timing killed it's delivery. The rest of the jokes just weren't funny.

You need to hit a certain note with lazy randomness default writing, and this wasn't it.

IaMI2002 responds:

Calm down Sean Astin. I'm almost positive I made it a fact to state that this is our first parody. Sorry we're not kings of parody right off the bat.
Unprompted retarded goofiness of the writing? Excuse me for being silly and having a good time.

The phrase "Arkham City" is repeated twice, one being in the credits with dialogue we added in for shits and giggles. And if you have played the game, which I'm assuming you haven't, you'd notice how many times they actually say Arkham City in game. Way more than we have in the parody.
I'm not sure what you mean by generic. We look like every other cartoon? Our jokes are generic?

Thanks for the bat crayon comment. That was the main joke the rest of the script was built around and I feel the timing is off too. That's a solid problem which we should look into.

I like the other jokes personally, but hey you get some good reviews and some bad. Thanks for the review. We'll try our best to learn from this and create better installments :).
