Not bad. Very professionally done, although the humor was obviously Russian, this is a completely likeable piece. The graphics were smooth and well-drawn, and the sound quality was top-notch. Great work.
PS. Monchies, your Russian is off.
I just laughed the hardest I've laughed in a long time. Thank you for that.
I agree with anyone else who says this needs to be a series. I'd love to see more of it.
Keep up the great work.
This is awesome. I can't even begin to tell you how much I enjoyed this. It's my first time watching an episode of Xin, and it most definitely will not be my last. The voice acting is top notch, and the concept is mind-blowingly awesome, especially for a flash movie. Great work. I look forward to watching the rest and seeing further episodes.
PS. I've got some voice acting experience. If you've ever got need for someone, I'd love to be a part of this.
As with one of your previous reviewers, I think this is a well-done flash. And though I can see the humor, some of the anti-American sentiment does bother me. While I won't get into my own views, I will voice that it's rather foolish to stereotype the entire population of a country. It's no better than the common misconception that all communists are bad people; which, I know, is completely untrue.
Regardless of said agitation, this is a very well-done flash. Decent animation, etc. etc. etc.
Good work, mate.
I apologise if it offended you.
Thanks for the review!
Very nice. As par usual, a hilarious flash. I especially liked the music in this, although the fight scene music sounded rather much like a tune from the old Infocom game, Return to Zork.
As par usual, this is awesome. Of course, it's going to get a maximum rating from me. I'd give extra points for the Douglas Adams reference. :P
I agree with i1011i, if you're going to submit something into the Newgrounds Flash Portal, you need to expect three things: Praise, criticism, and flames.
Also, in agreement with Mr. 1011, the sound sucks. The audio is poorly mixed and, at times, seems to have been added as an afterthought. The gunshots are a good example of the shoddy sound quality, sounding more of metal garbage cans being struck with an aluminum baseball bat than any sort of actual firearm. Additionally, I found myself turning the volume down every time a "gunshot" sound was set to go off; once again, due to the poor audio mix.
There were, however, some redeeming factors to this particular piece, one of them being that it was interesting enough to watch in it's entirety; which is not something that you see in many of the two-minute or longer entries to NGs.
Not a bad movie, mate. Just work on the sound.
I'm a fan of the Numa Numa Dance
But this was good. You made a pretty good point. But another good point is the fact that he did it first. I got a pretty good laugh out of this. Nice work, mate.
One of these years DNF will be out... You just wait. :P
Great flash, mate. I actually helped this one make it though the portal, but didn't have time to review it. Happened to stumble across a link to it on 3d Realms' website. Congrats on getting their front page and congrats on the great job of all of the obvious losers who get pissed off at this! :)
Also want to let you know that I quite enjoyed the Commander Keen Ten Years On parody. Great work on that one.
Thanks! Stay tuned for the "Commander Keen" MOVIE that I'm making with the aid of Commander Keen fans around the world in 2005. If you'd like to join in and add your voice, check out the "Public Commander Keen Forums" (Google it, I can't type links here).
You need voice acting
And I'd love to do it... This is a really cool plot... Not the most original, but nothing is truly original... If you'd like to add a voice track to this, e-mail me at mortaleabbracci@aol dot com.
Great flash, mate.
