Brilliant as always!
Dragonblade might not have liked the lack of direct game references, but I think he missed the point about the approach of parody. It's not always about the game itself and the hype/expectation about Halo (and the mentality of a lot of the players) was done brilliantly!!! How the hell could he dock 5 marks off for that?? I liked the primal insanity that reminded me of Gears of Awesome, but referencing the typical Halo players instead...
Your animation's getting better and better too.
This is up there with Awesome Man and Awesome Centre Redux for me :D
I tend to play on Xbox Live with my friends. Friends I can't meet up with most of the time. Generally, I don't play if they're not on. COD if they're on. Fallout if they're not lol
There are a lot of good points which I think everyone should keep in mind. I used to be a completist with games. (Though I knew about Warcraft and would not allow myself to start it) I'm not going to say I'll not play games anymore, but like you, I had a realisation that games were having an over-dominant effect. I wasn't getting enough done. I have now restricted it to an hour or so in the evening if I play in a day. And also if I know I have got stuff done that I wanted to...
Would never pass up good experiences in place of games though. I would have when I was younger though. Am 27 now...
I also posted on facebook!
Highlights for me include
- Officer McDickface
- Comment response "I wuz t3h car lol"
Great little track. One thing worth giving a try is pushing up your bass notes one octave. You'll still have a nice gap between your upper lines and will sound a little less muddy with more clarity. Keep going!
Great percussion and orchestral sound. Very cinematic. Can I ask what sound library(s) you used for this? Did you use StormDrum by any chance? (have had my eye on it) :)
Nice job. Don't feel too bad about the vocals. Your vocals are fine (a little over processed for my tastes, (pitch correction?) but by no means bad!) It's not that you can't sing, it's that the original vocals set a very high bar. He has a very expressive voice, probably, perfectly captured with some expensive gear. It's a nice track and the vocals work well; just that people have such an attachment to the original, I think you've set yourself an unfair task
