Re: Brawl Taunts. PLEASE READ

2008-05-09 04:05:39 by Rina-chan

This is the girl who wrote the script/audio for this flash.
NG won't let coauthors edit the "Author Comments" box, so I hope everyone reads this review.

First, I'm sorry if you don't like my style of humor. Please note that the audio for this mostly came as a boredom thing from some quotes my friends and I came up with while playing Brawl.

Second, I wrote the Sonic taunt when Brawl first came out and everyone was still playing with Smash balls...so it was easy to see how people thought Sonic was "cheap" and play off of his regular taunt with this one. I agree that certain other characters are much more overpowered; HOWEVER, you have to say I'd already predicted the response of the rabid Sega fanboys and added it in already so you guys wouldn't have to leave those reviews ;)

Third, although Kirb and I are both friends of Egoraptor and appreciate his work, I can safely say that neither of us were trying to copy him. Kirb's animation style and my writing style have both been with us since we first started doing this stuff, but it seems to be a trend these days to classify anything quickly drawn and with random cracked-out voice stuff as Awesome ripoffs.

Fourth, I AM WELL AWARE THAT I DID NOT INCLUDE EVERY BRAWL CHARACTER. The main reasoning behind this is because the longer I made the audio, the more work it would be for Kirb to animate. And did anyone notice how little attention span Newgrounds users these days have?

Fifth, no I am not just "someone who's pissed off at the game". I quite enjoy Brawl and am fairly good at it. Again, this was just random shit that I came up with when playing the game with my buddies.

Sixth, Kirb animated this in THREE DAYS... give him a break. If you want to see his serious work, check out the other movies he's made. You won't be disappointed :)

But finally, THANK YOU to everyone who enjoyed this silly little flash of ours and thank you Newgrounds for the front page and daily feature. It was certainly unexpected from both of us, and I'm glad if this brought a smile to your face :D

I don't think that you should have to explain yourself for this flash. I thought it was funny, though i didn't agree with everything said in it. But that's not the point. The point is freedom of expression. If close-minded people cannot handle the humor, they need to get out of the boat.
You know this, I know this, but why some people don't get it is beyond me.
Oh, and I love your voice work. :)

Haha that Flash owned. Mainly because so much of it is true. Sonic is my main character, but he is definitely cheap.

Nice work. You shouldn't need to explain yourself for something as sweet as that Flash was.

These two pretty much said what had to be said.
Its a nice piece of flash.

Funny script, and some nice animation.
Definitely if its done in three days.

Awesome voice acting, and keep up the great work.

Holy crap, seriously?!

I really liked the voice work, and for something that was just randomly said, it turned out to be a great flash!

And I agree with the fact that kirby's "hi" taunt is annoying, especially when people camp to do it...

I liked it, especially the clothing jokes about Samus. Also when Peach strutted her stuff.

The bits about Sonic, Luigi, Wario, Lucas, and Snake were pretty funny. The Ike and Marth bit (when they were about to kiss, I think), on the other hand, offended my heterosexuality. :-/

In other words, I liked it, especially the perverted parts (with Samus and Peach). :P Above all, you are still one of my favourite voice actors. :)

You don't think people like your humour? Looking at your score, I have to say I doubt many people are disliking it.

Personally, I thought the flash was great. Your voice acting is fantastic, and the artwork gets the point across well enough.

The Sonic joke was pretty confusing, yeah, but all in all I thought it was great. I loved the Yoshi joke in perticular.

But lets be honest here, Kirby's art and animation style for that flash IS incredibly similar to Egoraptor's work. Nobody's classifying his artwork as an Awesome Ripoff because of a "trend", its because anybody who's seen both flashes can realize how much the styles resemble one another. The way the eyes are drawn, the proportions, the style of animation, the not-smoothed paintbrush edges, etc. Think about it. If Kirby had never seen Egoraptor's work before, and was still asked to do this, do you think the drawings and animation would look anything like they do?

PS: Brawl me. I'm really into the game and I can't find anybody who can give me any competition.

I loved it...it did more than just put a smile on my face..it made me laugh. The whole part with Marth getting too close to Ike really made me laugh, because my friend April once said, when we were playing Brawl, that Marth was so girlie looking that he should be a character in a yoia ((is that how you spell it?)) based anime. And I thought I had heard your voice before ^^. You and Kirb should do a sequal or something. Keep up the great work!

Don't sweat it, I've learned that making ANYTHING about smash brothers will draw endless fanboy criticism. As long as most of it is positive, you did a good job.

Rina-chan responds:

Thank you so much! It's an honor to hear from you =)

That was so poorly written that I don't even think you care what you put in the script, if you want an example of what I mean, just go look at the young link part at the start. This isn't a style of humour at all, it's just a bunch of quotes that forums have been recycling for years. 'Show me your boobs' Yeh..... real orginal. It is an insult that you credit yourself as 'writing' this crap.

Rina-chan responds:

It's clear that this silly flash made quite an impression on you. Sorry it ruined your day.

I thought it was funny. I think Peach should pay attention to Luigi. He is the best charactor in my opinion but of course you have a gorgeous and sexy voice and did a great job on Peach and Samus. That shirt Peach wore made her boobs pop out just about lol great job and I knew Samus already had big boobs just hide them in that suit of hers lol.

Excellent job on the audio in my view, there isnt a need to explain why you had to shorten the audio and about the humor, everyone has their own type of humor and if isnt to their liking then tough shit. Good luck in future projects and hope to hear more of your works later on.

I liked it. Who cares about the animation design? Seriously, so many people nowadays are more concerned about how things look rather than the overall effort! They won't play a game if the graphics aren't up-to-date, and they won't watch flash animations if the animation isn't really well done. So picky!

Anyway, I loved it, nice work.

some fucken asshole online kept camping on new pork city as jigglypuff and taunting and fuck i couldnt touch him

in final destination he'd fly around the bottom of the ledges and when we all had our health down he'd attack us

after a couple rounds we forgot about each other and just ended up kicking his ass

anyways my point is that mario's smash >luigi's, hope that helps

Ah yes. It's sad that these days you have to make this huge disclaimer so that you don't get char-broiled to death by the intense of heat of rabid fans. I loved the style and the writing...seems voice-acting isn't your only talent. :3

As I'd told you in e-mail format, you certainly are my inspiration for voice-acting, and a large factor for that is humor. :D

Good luck in future endeavors! Just use the troll flames to toast marshmallows on.

You've gotta love how people get so worked up over things. "Hey I don't agree with this so let's waste more of my useless time complaining about how this wasted my time even though I could have clicked X on the flash and just went on with my useless day" I do love Newgrounds for the users who particularly have a...let's call it a...opinionated personality. I think that works.

Man some of these people are so stupid. And your right, Kirb has some great flashes. So people shouldn't go dissing on him just because he animated it in 3 days. Well anyway great flash funny, and great voice acting.

And I know this is off topic but could you talk to Kirb about TTA and PM me about whatever he said. And let him know it's one of the greatest flash series I have aver seen.
