Reviews for "[2010] REBOOT 12"

well worth the wait.

Excellent! I'd say this is the best Reboot yet. The visual style keeps getting better and better, and the story blew me away. It definitely took a turn I wasn't expecting, and I love it. Oh, and as always the music fit perfectly, you certainly have a knack for picking the right tune to fit the mood. I can't wait to see whats in store next! Keep it up!

Thanks for the review! There are quite a few more surprises in store, this episode is something I've been dreaming of doing for a while (especially the dreamcast character towards the end).. the next episode, if I can handle it, will be unlike anything people have seen before on NG ... just truly bizarre and genre-breaking o_O and some parts might even be illegal to watch in certain countries(what does he mean?!)

This next episode won't take quite as long. Stay tuned.

Incredible

Honestly, I can't figure out why this is currently scored below 4/5. This is phenomenal. Great story and music. And the art really works with what you're doing. I look forward to the next installment.

So let me see if I have this straight.....

This series is basically what goes on in an individuals hard drive when a virus invades and jacks everything up?

The series started of as quaint but quickly took a turn for the strange, I'm still not sure what the hell is going on. Can we not wait 2 more years to move the story along?

Bullet points!

-Best REBOOT in a while.
-Seconding Lambinvoker on most sentiments:
--Except i like how you use subtitles+voices+music as dialogue. I think you should find even more interesting ways to convey speech. Your dialogue is so dry that these exchanges would be boring otherwise.
--I agree you should drop the LBP animation, the concept is so visually and thematically similar to what you're already doing with REBOOT that it doesn't seem worth it. If you want to do a new project you should start thinking about things that won't conflict with other peoples intellectual property.
-You never spell any of my names right, you troll.

Here we go again!

Jon,
Thanks for submitting this on my birthday. You shouldn't have. It's weird too. I dislocated my right shoulder again two weeks a go. Are you spying on me from the States?

In all seriousness, You gotta stop using recycled material. Several sound effects and voice clips are reused from the last couple of episodes. Also we are in 12th episode and you are still making us read dialogue. Either voice act everything on don't do it at all.

I really miss the music videos that were included in each episodes. I especially loved episode 6 because of the musical pieces that helped tell the story. You are just playing through the dialogue now with low quality voice actors and some subtle background music. Everything really when downhill after episode 7 or 8. The scene with the Stokes cover was the pinnacle of this series.

Everything else is making me cringe.

You really should have grown enough by now to realize that you can never use this series as anything short of a personal project. It's been what - almost 5 years now? All that you've put out is a overly polished dark video game parodies. Your whole "The Apocalytes" is just another video game parody inspired directly from LBP.

Please please make something new and original. Something that comes from your brain alone, not something that can be only told to an audience who is familiar with classic NES games or LBP. And don't use licensed music anymore. It was fine back when we were teenagers, but we're in our mid-twenties now, man. It's time to expand and really make your mark. You can't do it music and ideas of others.
Also, in the future consider finding an animator to work out hard to pull off shots (not me, I fail at animating). Even some of the cool effects that you do aren't as appealing anymore due to the more and more detail added to the characters. To be painfully honest, you're a terrible animator, but you could be a great director and are already an awesome storyteller. Delegate, branch out, and expand.

Your friend watching from the other side of the world,
-Justin
