BEST ANIMATION EVER! I like the way that each person and character has their own personality, and they're not all the same, because if they were, that would be very boring to watch. Good job, and I really want to show my friends this!

issa good one but tip n play is better

Well, because of the rumors of zero star reveiws getting deleted, I'm just gonna give this three.

Alright now I'm just gonna give you my points off the top of my head that i don't like about this cartoon.

There are way too many video game references that it distracts from the cartoon, especially that pokemon battle part. A simple "Werewolf! I choose you!" would have sufficed. Also all of the sound effects ripped from other games also felt pretty distracting.

That character with the missing tooth really annoyed the hell out of me and how his character was pretty much just "giggle squee! ecks dee!" If you're going to make a random character who bends reality in the stupidest ways, then you need to go crazy with that and ramp it up even higher.

Ok, that "vampire with sunblock" joke really fell flat because IT'S NIGHT TIME IN THE BACKGROUND.

All of the other main 4 characters are also pretty much the same, you need to give your characters some more traits to make them more memorable. The only other one i could really remember is that british guy because he's british.

Also, another thing that is important is that all of your characters (excluding le random man) all sound the same, and no I don't mean that they sound like they have the same voice, I mean they all have the same flat monotonous personality to the way they speak. Think of it like this, all of your characters are each a different instrument and they're in an orcastra, your cartoon is this orcastra, and the whole time they all play just one note, with the occasional flute solo from the random man. Now, i don't know about you, but that sounds like a pretty boring concert, so it doesn't matter HOW many voice actors you have for a project, they gotta have some variety in the notes of there lines, a good example of this actually comes from your cartoon where you have Sir pelo in it, that man knows how to use his notes, and probably the only funny part of this cartoon.

Why did you even have Rick appear in the background? it was not needed and unfunny, it just basically feels like your trying to get some nerd cred, and now it just makes me wonder how many other cringe worthy cameos I thankfully missed.

My last critique is how the FUCK did this take a whole year to make? I mean seriously, all of the characters have the same head shape, same eye shape, and same body type, not to mention it has a shit ton of tweening and a plethora of short cuts and parts where it's just one frame with some narration. I made a 13 minute long sonic parody in 8 weeks with minimal tweening and I can say that it's at least more animated than this, not to toot my own horn here, but I was really hoping, just HOPING that there was at least one part that was really well animated to justify this, and when the fight scene came along I thought to my self "Oh boy! this is it! show me what you got!" and then it happened and i was severely dissapointed.

I didn't want to hate this, I wanted to like it, but you just make it hard to do so.

Oh yeah, one last thing, I absolutly loath your intro, the roomates logo spelling itself out is pretty much just ripping off of Edd's world, you can't deny that, also It might be just me, but that 8-bit music really gets on my nerves, it sounds like the Silver Surfer's OST but worse.

Also you've been working on your webseries for like, 4 years? that's almost as long as me and I think it's time you got some wake up calls and really start improving your art.

I'm only being so hard on you because I was also once a young lad who ripped off Edd's World, and I want to see you improve.

Okay dude, I have no problem with you but you really should actually take this criticism that's been given to you for 2 years now instead of just deleting it. I'm one to talk about drawing considering I still struggle with certain things but you really should take these people's advice instead of just ignoring it. I hope to see you improve more though, your videos tend to get at least one or two laughs out of me.

I can't delete reviews on Newgrounds, dude!
I do like getting some constructive criticism, I always wanna improve my stuff.

Every day i keep getting review notifications on this cartoon that are long 0 star reviews and the next day i check back and the same people have a new one because you or whoever else has been reporting them. You should probably check who that is and remove them from the project or something.

Also i don't think this is very good. First couple times watching it i thought it was a huge improvement for you but honestly the only thing you really improved on since the last roommates episode was just frame by frame. I used to pass off lazy looking art as a style but sometimes it really isn't. Drawing all of the humans the same and then not being able to draw anything else very good isn't a style, it's just not knowing how to draw. The voice acting has always been bad, some aren't good at acting, some are literally just talking into a mic and not actually voice acting, and some have piss poor quality. The story i'm indifferent about, some points are paced fine but i feel like the parts with the worst pacing are the actual important parts, especially when the villain is first revealed (also the villian's body exploding and his brain being put into an animal's body is just ripping off Evil Con Carne except with a dog.) Backgrounds are fine enough and some of the jokes weren't even that bad. I feel the only thing i can really say about this is that you shouldn't work on cartoons 24/7, you should just work on the things that people have been telling you for almost 2 years. Work on art, colors, writing, pacing, characters and voice acting. I can tell you put effort into some of this because you worked on it for a year and kept going even when you were past your 3 deadlines, but still. Also, the roommates intro hurts my ears i would legit prefer Kevin McLeod music or even the shortened version.

I don't even agree with some of the reviews that have been deleted, but like what's the point of uploading to newgrounds if you or whoever is just gonna delete everything that isn't 5 stars?
