Too bad that the game is progressively getting worse. :P
I absolutely LOVED the flashback of the prior video. The jokes were completely hysterical, but, to be honest, the jokes weren't AS great. In any case, it's still worth the comedic value. I also liked how many people collaborated with you. Even the animation quality showed amazing improvements, which seemed highly improbable judging on the quality on your past videos; they are amazing and so visually appealing.
Let me summarize EVERYTHING...
-Great animation, partially due to the epicness and the fact that it's freaking 3-D.
-This is a collaboration, promoting other people's work, regardless of how well known it is. That's very kind of you.
-Music is very fitting and awesome.
-The many easter eggs and secrets are also very amazing.
-Great inspiration to future animations, though it won't spark too many things greater than this.
-Reminds me of my Super Smash days.
Here are the cons. I'm not deducting any points.
Cons(according to the masses)
-Lighting. This is an issue because if one can't see what's happening, then he/she/it will feel the need to rate downwards.
-Having a character killed off or not including a character. THIS IS THE MOST BULL THING TO DEDUCT POINTS. If one's favorite character isn't in the animation, TOO BAD. If he/she/it want an animation where it's tailored to make he/she/it happy, then freaking pay them.
-Unexplained deaths/small screen time. This is much more understandable. For example, we didn't see Larry die. We didn't see Darnell die. We sure didn't see P-Bot die. At least screen their deaths so things would make a bit more sense. I do understand why you didn't do this. You would probably end up ready for Pico Day 2012 if you included everything, and you wanted it up there.
-Medals. Medals are 100% OPTIONAL. One does not need medals to live. Get over it. You don't need to really worry about that.
-Quality. You probably had to change the quality to an outrageous point to make sure the medals work properly. I was expecting this animation to be like... half a gigabyte, so it's alright. Maybe you could have tried adding a bit more to keep the quality up.
-No development. This is an issue for people who "wants to relate to the characters." You solved that by placing the links of where they came from. For them, they wanted to see it within the animation.
Overall, this animation is just awesome. Enough said.
Well, the animation looked pretty good, and being that this is your only submission, I won't deduct much. Correction. I won't deduct. The point came across really well, and it gives people hope that they might have a happy ending with their significant other in the near future. You're awesome for that. All in all, this is a very good animation, I loved it.
I literally cried the first 2 times I saw this animation. By any chance, is it possible for me to have the sheet music for the song playing in the background? I want to play it for anyone that suffered not just a loss of family, friend, or lover, but anyone that suffered at all. Maybe it will inspire them... and after all, inspiration tends to be contagious. About the animation, great clairity, vivid meaning, and this is one of the few animations that isn't a music video I can happily say it doesn't need any other sound other than the music itself to be great. This animation actually brought me out of my 5-month hiatus, especially after I read GungaD's review and your response to it. It's actually a bit sad that this animation is where it is now, when it should be at least within the top ten flashes on Newgrounds. Of course, I'm not a harsh reviewer like him, so chances are, this review isn't really going to attract your attention at all. But still, think of the joy that you were given when he left that review. Now, imagine the joy of a smoker quitting after seeing your video. I will dub it "The Cycle of Happiness" and it will only start, if someone makes someone else happier. And you, a great animator, have started it all.
Some people say you're on something, like LSD or acid. Others say you're against suicide. Some say you're just a happy individual. Even more people say that you took this as a dare. I say, it has to be some mix of those possibilities. So, for starters, for making me laugh, cry, smile, and jump for joy all at once, through a clear, vivid, epic animation, you deserve a ten. But... What made you think of doing this??? Seriously, my brain broke a little bit. Ouch... Oh well, as long as I'm smiling at your videos, you got a least a happy idiot behind you. And one last thing: what do you mean dog's don't do science? My mind has so many questions right now...
Great short, good animation, good quick laugh, no audio issues, but one issue in general. If you had the guy play the Ocarina(I hope I spelled that correctly), then maybe a tiny bit more emphasis on his playing. It looked like a static image and the song playing in the background, so maybe even a tiny bit of finger movement and you've got a solid ten. But, you're getting a not-solid ten.
CHANGE THE FILTER TO TEEN! YOU'RE GOING TO SERIOUSLY EMOTIONALLY SCAR A LITTLE CHILD!
Now, before I "accidentally" have Caps Lock on again, the animation is NOT a comedy. It IS a parody, but not funny at all, except the part where the orange shirted guy was practically crying. The animation is pretty good. No real complaints, just change the filter and genre or else Rebecca Black will kill you. I really need to go make a leak so... just have a TINY warning maybe?
I truly feel that this animation should be under Waiting For the Bus on the Top 50 list, but hey, it's pretty hilarious. Like all other official Happiness and Cyanide videos, the animation and sound quality is good enough for my ten, and adding the comedy only makes it more of a ten.
The animation REALLY makes me feel better, until I realize I'm just a kid watching video after video, playing game after game, in an empty room while whatever is left of my dignity and social life flies out through the wind. Back to the topic, the video really gives people hope, and it does give people smiles. The animation also has TONS of cameos, whether towards the creators or any pop-culture references. I love those in all honesty. Basically, your flash is awesome.
