Great work again...
Pros: These episodes keep getting better and better. It's refreshing finding something with an actual plot rather than a pointless animation because in my opinion half of what makes a good flash is a good storyline. The fact that you took something that some many people love and put your own twist on it is awesome. Great job with the animation, the 3-d animation was superb as usual. The 3-D hydralisks and zerglings looked great way better than in episode 2. I dig the music, especially the guitar solo one during the space fight.
Cons: Here's some constructive criticism for you. During the hydralisk/zergling battle, it seemed the amount of gore was lacking. I mean, even in the game they blow up in a bloody mess. Remember, this is a starcraft tribute, the least you could do is create that same gorey likeness. In fact, the only blood I really noticed in the movie cam from the ghosts mouth when he was battling the zealot in the beginning. Another flaw I noticed with the animation was the amount of lip movement. It seems you got a little lazy with that seeing how the viewers don't see lip movement until scene 4. The sound quality was nice but the voices still need a little work... something seemed missing... I'm thinking maybe a variety of different sounding voices and possibly a girl voice (medic, valk, or dropship?). Think of how different the voices sound in the actual game and compare that to your movie.
Over all, awesome series. I put you in my favorites. Thanks for doing this I was waiting for someone to do a starcraft tribute for a long time. Keep it up the good work I can't wait to see the next one!
Point taken about the gore - look forward to my sad efforts at blood and guts (which are suprisingly hard to animate!) in future episodes! hehe. Thanks for that great review and handy pointers
"every super hero needs a bitch, superman has lois lane, spiderman has mary jane, batman has robin" hahaha.. nice one.
I love starcraft. Seriously, I started playing the game when it first came out years ago and I still play it on occasion when i'm bored. Awesome movie man. You know, playing in campaign, I would always love those short movies they had in between the actual gameplay. This just feels like an extended version of on of those clips. It's cool too because I know what everything is; zerg, protoss, zealot etc. etc. Finally a flash movie I can relate to. And it's not one of those crappy, 1/2 assed, thrown together movie you see so often, it actually looks like you put quite some time into it. The best though is the 3-d animation... for instance the 3-d tank looked like a tank from starcraft and the hydralisk looked like a hydralisk. The only complaint I have is the voices. I realize that it's sometimes difficult to get different voice actors but by recruiting a few more people, it would definitely up the quality and overall feel of the movie. Also, keep putting those jokes in the beginning because I like those... even when the movies loaded I continue to read them... Canadian Army lmao... Anyways, I should be wrapping this up. I've been waiting for someone to do something like this for a while and I'm glad I clicked it. Keep it up man I can't wait to see the next episode.
Cheers! I hope people who don't know SC can understand it too. I took some time out of making this one to play the entire campaign again in SC for the hell of it heh - I did it in about a day, no fluffing about heh. I've had some offers for voicing so hopefully I'll up the game in the next one.
very good game my friend. i didnt experience any glitching like everyones been saying. heres a few things i think you should change.
1.) you should make it so once you beat the game you dont have to worry about weight classes. that way the player can have the option of building as many badass tanks as he wants to. that would be hella fun.
2.) this is what happened to me and most likely a lot of players. i would get to the next weight class and fight the heavier tanks, but because my tanks were shittier, i would lose the battle. this was a pain in the ass because you would have to go back to the lower weight classes to make enough money to fight in the higher weight classes. but the thing is you cant go back to the lower weight classes because youve already built your some of your tanks heavier for the higher weight classes. so then u gotta sell all ur good stuff for shitty, lighter things.
thats all i can think of right now. good game though i look forward to playin ur other games.
Your game is really really...
hard. But it is also really really fun. I with I could beat the game but my hand don't move fast enough. Blast my stagnant fingers... I could only get to the 8th level... oh well.
The game looked really simple, but I personally like things simple which is why I gave you a 9 in graphics. If you want to make this game easier, I suggest maybe slowing it down just a tad bit, and outline projecting boxes in black so they are more clear.
The game kind of seemed a bit lifeless with the over usage of colors like blue, turquoise and white. Maybe some clouds, or different color blocks... I dunno i'm just throwing out some ideas... Adding a variety music to choose from would help liven things up a bit as well.
The control was awesome. I really liked how you the ship moved with each direction. It definately added to the 3-d feel to it.
Overall I loved the game, keep doin your thing.
Led Zeppelin is one of my favorite bands. I'm glad there are people still out there that listen to GOOD music. Theres only a few new age artists that our generation has come up with that I really like. I generally listen to classic rock. Enough about that though, this tribute was awesome. The bios were really interesting and were worded to keep your attention. I never knew how the group actually formed until I read this. The only thing I would like to see is full songs so you could listen to them entirely in the background while you were reading them. I actually put on some Led Zeppelin in the background just because it got me pumped to listen to them. I liked the addition of the albums but I wished they had the titles. Overall, this was a nice thing to read before bed and I'm glad I clicked it, good job. Rock on.
I wish i could of included more of their songs too, i did at first, but well, The file size got too big. Good suggestion with the adding names for the albums, I was going do that, but forgot when i moved to constructing the bios. Led Zepplin really was a great band, and i'm glad you liked my tribute. Thankyou very much for the great feedback.
pretty badass. those vocals sound like the came from the depths of hell.
thx man the rock is from the depth of hell really it is sadden said high on the way back up
You're always comin up with them sick ass melodies! Shit is bomb. The only advice I can give you is lower the whistle down a bit (seems a bit loud) and add a lil more bass. gj
thanks man all my melodies are original but they can be influenced by a certin sound or anything i hear, even if i hear someone talk a certin way that can infulence me so thanks for the review i appreciate it
but needs to be WAY faster! I dunno just sounds a bit slow/dry to me. I like it so far though. More diversity too wouldn't hurt like highhats + something else. gl
Well, I've been working on this some since I released it, and I've decided to ditch the Guitar. I wasn't going anywhere good with it since I had started. I may bring it back later.
Right now I have some nice drum beats with some Highhats, Cymbals, and added a snare. I plan on adding something that isn't drums, but I'm not too good with improvision so it's getting pretty hard for me.
I may(should) speed it up considering right now it's only at a 150 BPM. I'll release another version soon when I get more done.
