Press Start Adventures - "Lament of Ineptness"

Count Vile and Vlad hold a villains' teleconference to find a way to free Vile from Hell.

Featuring the voices of David Humphrey (SONIC ADVENTURE 2 & SONIC HEROES), George Nowik (CONTRA 4), Arin "Egoraptor" Hanson (MARVEL ULTIMATE ALLIANCE), and Peter Davis (FREESPACE 2)!

"Press Start Adventures" is a monthly animated series that follows the live-action videogame parody movie "Press Start", available on DVD at

Some folks have asked why these episodes are a little shorter than the earlier Press Start cartoons. They were originally intended for mobile devices and needed to be under 3 minutes -- ideally around 2. We've got a batch of toons already in production, but we'll revisit the length after those. Thanks for your support!



Rated 3.5 / 5 stars


It'd be cool if there were more movement in the non-speaking characters. For example, there's a shot where you cut to the vampire chick, but why? She doesn't react or have any change of facial expression, so it doesn't add anything.
Other than that this series is excellent as always, the drawings aren't stellar but the humor is pretty funny, the sounds are great, and the timing is spot-on. Admittedly, I don't really get most of the references, but I guess that only means good things about your skills if it makes me smile anyway. This one wasn't as funny as the first, though.
