Nothing you haven't heard already
You definitely should have finished it, but that you knew. Anyway, I wonder if I could ask... what WOULD have happened if you had gone all out and finished it the way you had wanted/intended?
It is a shame that it ended like this since you'd put so much effort in the previous episodes, but I guess sometimes you just have to finish what you started even if it means cutting corners.
In terms of visuals, the animation was brilliant as usual. (Though there was one error I saw... when the nukes were about to hit, the truck the characters were escaping in appeared to be driving backwards. XD)
The audio was fine too, but I guess one of the unfinished parts was the voicing for some of the characters?
Plot--- Yes it wasn't finished, but the story doesn't necessarily end with the nuking of the city since in the previous episode, wasn't the girl bitten? So there is room for continuing if you ever chose to pick it up again.
Still, who knows maybe someday it could be finished, if not... that doesn't matter, just as long as you keep making cool animations like this series. You've got some serious talent!
They eventually would go to Umbrella Labs and get killed :/
Potential is obvious... but be careful
I see some fine potential with this to be a good series, but I still think there are a few things that need to be checked....
1- Credits- I get that crediting where you get sprites from and who is voicing who is important, BUT do you do not need to include it twice!
2- Storyline and plot- The plot is fine (zombies rise up and start killing everyone but a few survivors set off on a suicidal mission and some die on the way to find the solution to the problem and so on...) BUT you moved too fast (literally I thought it was lag at first but you just jump from shot to shot too much) I couldn't even see what happened to toadette and Petey other than he suddenly lies flat on the ground and she jumps on the plane window as a zombie.
3- Animation- The animation of the dialogue is fine and so is the sprite movement, but that being said... just seeing all the characters walking and shooting off screen zombies that are then laid on their path as they walk by is not very good for anything
4- Cast of characters- Mario game characters, what more is there to say other than that.... ohh and Why Ludwig? seriously why did you pick Ludwig as the only surviving Koopaling?
5-Voice Acting- The voice actors did a great job themselves, but you may want to include subtitles, because some things are a tad unclear at first.
That's all for now, but if you fix those few things you have a potentially great series going.
1-It was the movie's opening, with drama and the such, you don't have to actually watch the credits, it is optional.
2-No, it was lag.....Toadette was squashed....
3-true for some, false for others
4-If it were real, you wouldn't get to choose who survives and who doesn't.
5-Thank you for being positive with the voice actors.
Thank you :)
Funny and awesome movie
I wasn't pleased at first when I first saw this movie the first time, but I watched it again and though it wasn't that bad, and then I watched it a third time to get all the medals and I like it now. Lots of funny jokes and hidden bonuses speaking of which, I found all of them except for how to do Saria's song. and for those who do not know.... THE HIDDEN RED LINK ICON IS NOT IN THE MAIN MOVIE IT'S SOMEWHERE ELSE IN AN OBVIOUS PLACE WITH ANOTHER MEDAL TRIGGER CLOSE BY (I'm not telling the exact spot unless someone tells me how to get Saria's Song medal first). Good luck with the next one dude... XD
A good cross of series
The Metal Slug sprites are well fit to take on a Zombie style movie, and this is probably the best series of it. The Sprites themselves are very clear and precise even when you zoomed in to them. My only complaint is the music. The heavy metal gets distracting/annoying pretty fast, especially when you are watching a bunch of zombies slunking around the screen to try to reach the soldiers. I also wish the regular soldiers could play a somewhat better role than just appearing to die to zombies or even the heroes. I can't wait to see the next installment, but i see it has been nearly 4 years since your last release so... this may be a while. All in all it was a good movie, but one last thing. At the end, the 3 were trying to get in the sewer when suddenly there was an explosion right, how did Daniel the guy in front and closest to the sewer not make it, but the two behind him fall into the sewer?
Well like you said, it's been nearly 4 years. I animated this when I was 15 years old. It was very much style over substance. The finale which I've been trying to finish is much more substance over style. So the music and the explosions were just a part of that style. These kind of reviews really inspire me to finish the finale. Thanks man!
Another excellent LOZ sprite video
In my opinion, you are pretty much the best LOZ sprite movie maker on Newgrounds (and more). This is awesome. It seems like if I ever go through a tough time, something comes along to inspire me and renew my own determination, thanks man. This is actually the first time I ever heard that song, and its cool, in fact your other video Princes Of the Universe was the first time I heard that song too. When I heard you were going to do another Queen Music video I expected "We Will Rock You" or "Bohemian Rhapsody", but you surprised me again. In fact, if you ever plan to do another LOZ Queen music video, I hope its one of those two though I just saw your comment of how it's been done a lot and that is true but still... I also noticed that you've decided to stick with the black-box mouth for the characters, which you do very well, what frame rate do you use to make the lip-synch smooth? Another thing, I like those little quotes you put at the end of your videos from movies like the sandlot in we are the champions and princes of the universe, keep doing that, it adds extra meaning to the videos that way. Well, that's all for now, keep up the good work and as your vid just said for all those waiting for the next FSM... THE SHOW MUST GO ON!!!!!
Great job, but tell me...
What was the frame rate you used and how many drawings per sec did u use on average, one per frame or one every other?
Uh, well the majority of people used the full 24 frames per second. One or two people used every other frame, but that wasn't a common thing.
You stole this idea off of Bowser's Kingdom Episode 666. The poison mushroom to create zombies was all Araskin500 & Pthouse's idea. That was low. Theirs was WAY better, I mean you DID have a joke that they didn't have with the Thriller thing, but you did not use it to its full potential, for example: I might have been fine if right when the crowds of zombies are about to get to Peach and Mario, you'd have THEN had all the zombies dance. THAT would have been funny.
Oh shit did i I dnd't know about that...
Very funny but it seemed different...
I thought it WAS very funny but it was funny not in the same way that I was used to when it came to this series. There weren't enough song parts that were funny, random movie quotes with characters that became funnier, etc. And that part when itachi was dancing....scared me a little bit. O.o XD LOL. In the end keep it up but make sure the next one has more balance between your own jokes, and the ones we are used to.
Survival score sheet and good series too
I have decided to make a list of all the few surivors of this series, by chapter, and as of now, Wolverine, and maybe Spider-Man survived the first one (Wolverine has healing powers so he is pretty much impossible to kill, and Spider-Man MIGHT have surived b/c in the rest of the series if someone is hit with an explosive, they usually were blown to bits he only went flying.) In the 2nd Impact, Ghost Rider, Naruto, Kakashi, and Jin Kazama survived. Ghost Rider was just knocked offscreen by a Fire hydrant, Naruto was flipped offscreen by Siegfried which did not LOOK fatal, Kakashi was hit off by Daredevil who WAS dead, but likely could've survived, and Jin was thrown offscreen (nonfatal). As for the 3 ep. Ghostbuster Venkman, Luffy, and (TECHNICALLY) SpaceGhost who was just captured in the Trap. (Luffy's survival is controversial as it LOOKS like he was decapitated but it was only the guy next to him, but he was sent flying.
That's the score of who's left anyone who has any problems...SO WHAT MAKE YUR OWN IF I MISSED SOME OR U CAN PROVE ONE OF THEM DEAD SO WHAT MAKE YOUR OWN LIST XD
Deep very DEEP and WELL-DONE
This is an excellent way to honor the rebels who fought and died for the cause along-side the heroes. People never give these kinds of people enough credit and focus on the heroes of stories making the armies and teams and regular troops all seem like a bunch of pathetic weaklings, I am glad this movie shows that that is not true. The narration is very deep and well thought out. The ending is nice, suspenceful, hopeful, and it leaves the audience the way an animator wants them, BEGGING FOR MORE!! I hope there is a sequel... I think I found only ONE thing wrong with this: Are you telling me that out of ALL those ships (Varying in size from a small X-Wing to a big Rebel transport) ONLY ONE OF THEM MADE IT THROUGH!?!?!?! WTF!? At LEAST maybe 2 or 3- in fact I think almost all of the smaller ships would have made it through b/c the bigger ships would have been shot more and have been focused on. (the bigger the ship the easier it is to shoot. Even the Ties would have gone after them first. All in all it was a great tribute to the underappreciated efforts of the rebels. Keep it up.
