Retsupurae:

Well that was ... boring. Sure, it's an LP of Mega Man, the most redundant thing in the world. But except for that, the LP is at worst So Okay, It's Average.

Here's something better. Chip & Ironicus make fun of one of the most overblown, idiotic review shows I've seen in a long time.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K2F6I3k1K7Q You're talking about video games, you don't need all this!

Particularly in the first video... Okay. Look. You're reviewing Okami. Use more footage and actually edit it. You start off with video footage from a play-through very early in the game, you screw that up royally and don't edit it out, then you cut to a moment less than an hour later in the game to show off a brush-stroke.

Make your footage follow with what you're saying in your review.

Also Okami is not a "retro game" for fuck's sake.

What a bunch of dorks. I'll get my game reviews from Gaming In The Clinton Years, thank you very much.

When I heard the voice, I really though "hugh" was a woman.

They didn't even grab the footage themselves. Look in the bottom right, you can see the IGN logo right there! Ironic that they're playing the Wii version...

So it isn't much of a review. But wouldn't you be awed into an amazed silence by this game, too?

I love how reluctant he was to give even a single suggestion.

Yeah. Change the world map, maybe?

I don't know if I'm qualified to make judgments on the ROM hack, but...

  • Don't name the first "galaxy" Unknown.
  • Keep the old Mario sprites. The ones that replaced them just seem...off to me.
  • Perhaps implement some sort of Star gathering system to make it feel more like a Galaxy title. For example, instead of the ribbon at the end of a stage, it'd be a star, and touching it would end the level. Think something similar to the stars in that ROM hack Proton Jon was playing, shown here, at around 2:10.
  • More music from Galaxy. The music seems to be borrowed from SMB3 and maybe SMW.
  • And, of course, change the map to make it more space-like.

I believe that the replaced Mario sprites are from Yoshi's Island.

Also, notice how you replaced the sprite for the ? blocks when they're stationary but when you hit them they go to the old sprite? Don't do that.

I can't belive people like that guy. That hack was boring and really mediocre.

Did he steal jokes from The Spoony One?

He could've quoted Shakespeare for all I understand from all that incoherent mumbling.

Terrible. Just terrible.

I'd like a moratorium on jokes about "emo".

(You can still make fun of Neon Genesis Evangelion for having a shitty ending, though.)
Emo? Really? I mean, Tidus is many things, and quite a few of those are annoying, but I wouldn't classify him as "emo".

No idea, green guy!
The poor camcorder footage put me off.

Beforet: The original commenter's "jokes" are lifted straight from The Spoony Experiment, except they're from a whole bunch of different Final Fantasy reviews Spoony did, and the commenter both picked ones that weren't all that funny to begin with, and gave horrible delivery even of the ones that were worthwhile. (The "Emo" thing was from a somewhat more appropriate case where Spoony named Squall "Emo Git".)

"Look at it!"

I can't, your footage is too poor to make an accurate analysis on Tidus.

Also, I don't recall him being emo. One could argue that his argument with Auron in Luca is him being emo, but I think his anger is at least somewhat justified. Plus, he gets over it after a while.

His daddy issues might count. Then again, "emo" is so overused it has lost all meaning anyway.

No idea, green guy!
Apparently even if our sadness and rage is justified or if we're not 1000% super duper happy, we're emos. whic probably means then that Cloud Strife in FF 7 is the most miserable fucker in the series, and given what the fandom like to exaggerate him into...

I'd just like to see one negative review of FFX that didn't spend 75-90% of it's time whining about Tidus.

New stuff from Chip and Ironicus.

The usual anime bashing by proxy of a boring cosplayer vlog

And ... what the fuck is this? Ah, right
