That is the worst addiction EVAR, but it's almost great humor. Some nerds just think games are educational, as a way of keeping on games (some nerds actually do think that). 2+2 = sideways fish? and pe's in room i'll what the hell

and how is he 500lbs. if he barely eats every few months? anyway, great voice acting song. 9/10, 5/5. StalkerX50, that should be my new gamertag.

Final Judging From 5th Voice Acting Contest


Lmao. I liked the classic idea of the video game nerd. His voice was preety funny. Did you pronounce Katamari correctly? I play that game all the time and ive always pronounced it Kat ah mahri or something. Anyway, I enjoyed the skit for its creativity, but the acting wasnt that good. The characters usually talked with the same tone. The voices sounded a bit different so that was preety good, but make sure that one sounds nasaly while the other one doesnt. The friend not playing video games should have sounded much deeper. When your acting, try to act like you are the character, you are in the scene, and you then raise your eyebrows and say "WHAAAAT??" when he discovers piss in the closet or when he realizes the nerd killed his own mother. His reactions to things sounded kind of fake at times, but holy hahah that made it preety hilarious. I didn't believe the chinese voice, it sounded like you were struggling with it. This was very creative! Very funny, but try to improve on your acting by acting like you are really there and not sitting in front of a microphone.

It really reminds me of the "Llamas With Hats" style of humor. most of the lines were executed with "subtlety" and even though that style of humor is good on it's own... the funny is only kept in short bursts. Usually if you make something longer than 3 to 4 minutes... the comedy style needs to be more lively, and really keep your attention the whole way through.

mariobros153 responds:

lol yeah the I realizaed they were really alike AFTER I submitted it, so I was like shoot XD I made this up really on the spot so I can understand the "short burst" thing, I dont understand Jennifer's mixing score of 2/10.... becuase I think I did pretty good for an on the spot thing when it came to mixing XD I didnt think about it all the way through so thats why the acting is somewhat bad :) and why I couldnt keep the comedy up. Thanks for the Review :D

I liked it.

Hurray! So this is what a good entry sounds like. I wish I could maintain a conversation between two people scriptwise. Nice work.

mariobros153 responds:

Thanks! I just practice a lot with Voice Acting, so it comes naturally. This contest has turned out to be really enjoyable and I hope to do more stuff like this on newgrounds, but for peoples animations and stuff :D

Beautiful Katamari IS educational!!

...somehow. XD

I really liked this, especially the chinese slave bit. All the voices are different in JUST the right amount. The humor was pretty good too. Hope for the best on the contest for you; I joined this too. XD

mariobros153 responds:

Good luck in the contest too! I watched yours and thought it was funny XD especially for the grandma part when she goes all demonic XD
