Yes, yes, it's been a whole summer. You've been biting, scratching and clawing, waiting for this episode to come out. Hopefully, you'll find that it's well worth the wait.

The Story So Far:

Things have been getting strange for Sonic and company since Sonic's Uncle Chuck died and left our hero practically everything. First, an oddball, photokenenetic (light bending) hedgehog named Ashura shows up and joins the party. Next, Sonic finds out his house sits on a nexsis and he gets himself half killed becoming the Nexsis Master! Then, Knuckles finds an ancient evil sealed in the Hidden Palace and, you guessed it, accidentally sets it free and gets beaten like a redheaded step-child!! What, oh what, could possibly happen next...?

I personally love the series, yes, waiting was annoying and the ring wasnt to much better. if you are going to do voices mabe have them toggleable? and skipping text with a click of a button whenever you want, or at least a pause button.

i hate the ring boutton !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Well done...

though at the end there shouldve been some music otherwise it sounded so plain,
your getting better!
keep it up!

Keep them coming.

I'm looking forward to more episodes. I have to agree that waiting for the ring is annoying, not to mention it doesn't have a good clickable area.
So you say you did that to prevent people from accidentally skipping text boxes, but how often does that really happen? Not enough to make it worth having to wait for a few seconds after you're done reading for a ring to pop up.
You also say it's to encourage people to actually read the text instead of just blowing through. But if they don't have the patience to read all the text, they certainly won't have the patience to sit and wait for the ring. They'll just stop watching it and give you a bad score. Half reading the text for the whole episode is better the watching only the half episode because they didn't feel like waiting. Do you see what I'm saying?

LycanDiva responds:

Thanks. This is the first and last appearance of the button, though, since I finally got a working mic. The text at the bottom of the screen will still appear for people without functioning speakers (or ears), but it'll autoscroll with the audio. Really, the button was an attempt to try and balance convenience with my personal style... Too bad it flopped, huh?

Eh, I'll have to disagree with the Half text/full episode vs. Full text/half episode thing. I'd say both are just as bad, because in either instance, people aren't getting the full story. That, for me, is a loose/loose situation from a storyteller's perspective.

As for the accidental skipping, that's happened to me numerous times, actually. Cat bumps my hand, mouse decides to act up, my hand twitches at an inopportune moment... I don't think a few seconds' wait is all that bad, though. I guess that's just maybe because I'm more patient than most people these days. I guess when you live in a world of instant downloads, constant access to the internet in your pants pocket, and instant gratification every where you go, when you're forced to wait more than half a second for something, you get flustered XD.

Nothing good here.

Corny storyline,poorly done audio, only text dialouge (a sign of lazziness) what else is there to day?

LycanDiva responds:

Actually, I have text only dialogue because I didn't have a functioning mic, not because of laziness. I'll admit, my story is not everyone's taste, so to each his own on that one, but I'll have to say I did a darn good job with the audio considering that this is only the second episode with sound effects and not a single one de-synched this time around.
