Much better than most
I love that Austin Powers scene -- that is such a great moment both on this video and in the Austin Powers movie, lol. I especially like how you inserted your own original scenes, such as the Leeroy Jenkins one. It helps make your video stand out from the others. I tried to do original scenes a lot in my own Phoenix Wrong videos for this very reason because a lot of authors take the easy way out and do ONLY talking court-room segments, which nowadays isn't acceptable in my opinion.
I think the music scenes with Gallactica and Matt could have been tossed out. They weren't really funny and they mostly just dragged on. Other than that it was very good. Thanks for making it =).
Thanks for the good review, yes I thought that the Leeroy Jenkins scene was pretty original, I tried to do it that way. I had some doubts when glitches kept popping up, but I'm glad I kept it in because it's really become the fan-favorite.
And I know the music scenes are a bit long, but I thought they were funny.
FINALLY something more original
FINALLY something a bit more original for a change from a Phoenix Wrong vid! I always say a good Phoenix Wrong needs to have something original to make it help stand out and you did that with the "Mushroom mushroom" scene and the "ball throw w/ Sparta." That's always what I tried to do with a lot of my own Phoenix Wrong scenes because everybody else always makes the mistake of passing off a bunch of courtroom segments for EVERY scene, inserting audio files, and calling it a day.
I did notice some scenes with the sprites slightly jerking, which definitely could have been improved on, but I'll forgive it =D. There were also one or two times when the sound was a bit glitchy, mostly Mia's Scrub scene. Judging by the Flash's file size (1.4mb) it was probably because you set the quality too low when you exported it. I also think the length of the whole video could have been slightly longer, but that's a nit picky complaint. Overall very awesome job. Hope to see another one from you in the future =).
Thanks for the comment. =D I admit I could have improved things in the flash, but I guess I was too lazy to do anything about it =P. Plus everyone seems the enjoy it as it is.
The jerking sprites were a mistake I made when cropping the sprites from their sprite sheets using Paint Shop Pro. I accidently cropped a pixel or two off the sprites so the animation look kinda jerky, which is weird cuz it played prefectly when I tested the movie in the Flash program. The sound was another mistake I made when I was altering the audio files in Audacity. I made parts of the audio too loud and it sounds crackily due to the fact, as you stated, I made the sound quality quite low when I exported the flash. About the length, as I've said in a previous review response, I didn't have that many ideas. =P Anyways, thanks again for the comment. =D
MUCH better than most
I thought this Phoenix Wrong video was MUCH better than most. In my opinion, I think a good Phoenix Wrong should be ambitious over anything. It takes originality and creativity to make a Phoenix Wrong video stand out from the rest plaguing the Internet and I'm pleased to see you were going in that direction =).
What I loved were your sources -- the college student getting shocked, FPS Doug, and Kung Pow, to name a few. I wished I had thought of these for my Phoenix Wrong vids, lol.
If I had to be picky, some parts had bad sound quality. I also didn't appreciate that bit at the end showing all the spoilers, even if it was fast and not necessary to view =D. Producers have been obsessed with using PW3 sprites in new videos lately. It's alright to use them, but I'd put a warning saying "non-spoiler sprites" somewhere, or something to reassure viewers. Avoid using PW3 sprites unless you REALLY need them, which in some scenes, you could have avoided.
Overall an EXCELLENT video. Hope to see another one from you =).
Unoriginal and not focused enough on the Matrix
I love Simon and in that regard, this game played very well; however, I feel if a game is going to be based off of any licensed material (ex. The Matrix) then it should try its best to push the envelope of the said license. All this game has is one small background image of the agents in code with four green colored balls -- nothing else, so it's not convincing enough that it's a Matrix game.
I'd say somehow incorporating more images is needed. The introduction of levels with each new level showing a new background image would have been cool.
Confusing and irritating
I'm sorry, you lost me on the very first question -- why would the answer NOT be barracks? Barracks DO house armies! I get the pung, but still, having two correct answers to one question makes it hard to answer.
I also wish the questions could have been randomized somehow, but oh well. A nice quiz for those who don't mind pulling their hair out.
