the wait is over
And well worth it. I now understand why this volume took so long to complete. You really put alot of effort into the animation by incorporating jokes that mesh with the recent game releases. It was a nice balance of all the Sonicverses without leaving anything out. With that said, I commend everyones work and hope Vol 6 will be just as great to cap off the series.
No. 4 deserves praise by all Sonic fans!
OMG! It took 4 movies to get a SatAM reference. I must say, Im speechless. My internerd just joygasmed and I extend my graditude for everyone that has contributed their talents to these entertaining videos. This one was much mre more diverse by using everything that encompasses the Sonic franchise. I loved it! Knuckles sorda stole the spotlight, but with the SatAM elements like Swatbots, Snivley, and Princess Sally you have made this old skool fan content. I also must commend you for incorporating WereSonic in the menu screen. It really shows how current you guys are with the news. Great job as always and c ya in part 5!
the awesomness lives
WOW, Im really impressed with this one. The numerous Aosth references and the quality voice acting. I couldnt believe that I actually saw Princess Sally in this. That alone earns points since the first volume didnt cover any SatAM ground. Id have to say the most halarious skit was when Robotnik was dancing to his theme from Sonic Adventure and the guitar hero reference capped it off. Good job guys and even though I am one of those "bitching SatAM fans" I just appreciate all the hard work and devotion that went into these. See at Vol 3!
A celebration of Sonic's History!
I serioulsy havent been on Newgrounds in 3 years and someone emailed me a link to this movie since Im a long time obessive Sonic fan. I havent laughed so hard at a Sonic flash in like........well.....ever. Usually its just amature sprite animation ripped from the 2D games, but this was a masterpiece of epic proportions! I was really surprised how current it was with the revealed Shade character for Sonic RPG. Knowing theres going to be a Vol 2. makes me want to soil myself rotton in excitement. The only drawback to it is that since Ive been a fan since 1991, I was disspointed that you didnt reference the SatAM cartoon, Archie Comics, or Sonic Anime.
During the two-way Robotnik call, I was waiting for SatAM Robotnik to call in with his malacious tone but I still enjoyed it.
My suggestions for Vol 2 and Im bewildered why this hasnt been mentioned in the 70 comments:
1. Do another Robotnik phone joke, but this time have SatAM Robotnik involved. I can imagine Aosth Robotnik saying "oh hold on, I have another call" The scene splits into 3 views with all the Robotnks from the Sonic franchise. Comedy gold there.
2. Reference SatAM characters. Princess Sally, Bunnie Rabbot, Antonie, Rotor, and Dulcy. This also applies to Archie cause even in 2008, theyre still central characters.
3. Reference more of the classic 2D Genesis games, or even Saturn. Two crappy games come to mind such as Sonic R and Sonic 3D Blast.
Anyway, I realize its alot of information Im dispensing and I hope some of it marinates with you and your fellow animators. Im not sure if youre saving the SatAM/Archie references for Vol 2 already, but including those characters would really satisfy a larger number of older fans like myself. So with that said, this was the best Sonic flash ever produced and I hope you recieve more positive comments. A+++++
You are my hereo!!!
Never did i think that there was people out there who remember the old cartoon from ABC. Though the art was a little crude, I still enjoyed it for the ole skool look. I cant wait to see more, cause Tails swearing at Sally was priceless =)
Episode 12. Hard to believe the series made it this far. Nice refference of the movie They Live. This really brightened my weekend!
despite the crude graphics and amature flash skills, these "collections" are my euphoria. Its halrious how you take 90s icons and use them in a gay context. Do Sonic the Hedgehog from old cartoons or Super Mario Super Show using stills of the live actor segments. LOL
I must say, ive seen 13 year olds pull better shit than this. The constant spelling errors, the annoying sound pops, and the l33t speak. You should be damn fortunate that you kids today have the abundance of Flash on P2P programs. When i was 13, i did a school project using Mario Paint back in 1992 and it was 100x times better than this!! Id kill to have Flash back then!!! The internet didnt even exist then so i didnt even have ways of obtaining free software to practice on. You have have Flash MX and your 13, try perfecting your skill about it and be damn thankful you were born in the 90s!!!
I'm having a lot of trouble visualizing a MARIO PAINT project to be 100x better than. Or even 2x.
This had the potential of becoming a good flash movie. I loved how you explained in detail about the purpose of the game and its specifications, but it really seemed over analyzed. I mean come on, the whole religious and philiosophical references are just so far fetched hardly relative. Remember, the game was developed in Japan, so I dobut christianity was was a subtle meaning within this 4bit adventure. No offense, but it seemed pretentious and rediculous about elaborting the comparisons about Mario being Jesus. Nice try in the begining, but going too deep will ruin it for some people.
You miss the point, there is a distinct humor in the complete absurdity of it all.
Pop Culture at its best!
Ive been following the series since the first episode, and each one of them is like a pastiche of my childhoood. I can almost assume that your aiming for a 18-25 year old demographic cause alot of people wont understand the jokes ie The Oregon Trail reference. Im acutally 23, and everything that was implemented from the 80s up to now is well comprehended. Although you seen to be obsessive about Transformers lol. Its all cool dude, and just ignore all the little bastards that bash for the sake of being "uber l33t" as they say. Good luck with your future episodes!!
