Sequelitis 2 is out now! MEGA MAN!

2011-11-01 15:34:44 by Egoraptor

Hey check it, I made episode 2 of Sequelitis!

I would really love to upload it here but, you know, it's mostly video and less animation. Hope you guys like it! :)

I'm still animating. Things have been slow 'cause I moved to Palmdale and the move was pretty strenuous. I've got a Pokemon flash comin' out really soon, an then beyond that, Tomamoto has been urging me to finish Girlchan 4. Couldn't agree more!!

How you guys been?

Brb, selling that one kidney they didn't remove from me from birth to buy SNES/Megaman X.

(You don't need those to live right?)

Great vid.

Great job. I was totally prepared for you to bash mega man x. But you made some really good points that I want to try to use to make my games better.... when I finally get to actually making it and stop just planning.

lol, hell yes. I was always a Mega Man fan through the NES, and I'll never forget the day I went over to a friends house as a little kid and played the first Mega Man X for the first time. Totally enthralled, well made review!

The Mega Man X video is really fun but ONE question about the end... IS IT REALLY amazing that you have the opportunity to re-grind before fighting the final boss? You already proved once you can grind and build up your subtanks, so the satisfaction would come from proving you can beat Sigma, but instead you have to repeat the grinding portion every time before you can do it. JUST SAYIN'

Egoraptor responds:

It's a point that's better subtitled something like "nice gestures by the devs," but I think it's a subjective point anyway, and I'm happy to discuss it.

Let's say if you die, the subtank situation is easily refilled by like a capsule or something. This saves time, but it also creates sort of an invincibility complex, wherein you are now granted infinite, unpunished continues. Losing against Sigma now isn't very potent. Oh I died, whatever, start over.

On the other hand, if the devs gave you absolutely no way to refill your subtanks, a loss would be a colossal waste of time. If you weren't even capable of defeating Sigma with 4 subtanks, demanding of you now to defeat him with absolutely none is ludicrous, and would certainly be a turnoff especially in the scenario where you have a ton of lives.

The beauty is in the balance that they punish you to a tolerable degree. You immediately respawn and are given an opportunity to grind back up. It's a little boring, but the punishment creates more tension in the battle, and gives you a greater sense of accomplishment and sense of loss in a win or loss scenario respectively.

2011-11-01 20:53:31

Awesome. Your cartoons have always been hit and miss for me, but this was amazing entertainment. You should try to pitch this as a series to The Escapist, Penny Arcade or something. It'd fit right in (albeit cut into smaller portions).

2011-11-01 20:56:37

I think about this conveyance and tutorialising shit all the time when I'm NOT making games, but when I AM makin games I'm thinkin about... how to not draw like shit, and how to not break everything, and a BUNCH of other stuff!!

so yea, makin games be good is fuckin difficult. You have to give it 100% like-- 4 seperate times.

I really liked the layouts, the voicework, and the color selection. However, it wasn't very funny and there was hardly any animation. Speaking of Mega Man, you should check out this guy: http://maelstormm.newgrounds.com

Interesting analysis.

While I agree that games lately have more tutorials and button prompts than necessary, I don't entirely blame them. If we assume the gamer doesn't know anything about games, we need some way to teach them from the beginning.

Back then, the games could be played with just a couple buttons. Now we not only need about a dozen buttons to play, but we also have to know combinations and context sensitive actions. Not only that, but 3D games, far more common now, are very confusing by themselves. A new player often struggles until they get used to controlling the character and the camera at the same time.

And even older people may be beginner players.

Are there good examples of conveyance for 3D games?

Love it! This was one of my favorite child hood games too, but I had it on DOS. I think the music was better, but then again, I can't remember the quality of music too well from past experiences.. It's never the same... YEAH! MEGAMAN! DO IT FOR THE LEMONS!

If you ARE going to make more of those (I seriosuly liked both of them because of the reasons you hated and liked the game AND because of your jokes), I think you should do one about the pokemon games!

There has been a lot, and I really wanted to know what you thought about it.

ANd I want to see you make jokes about it too XD

ego, try half life 2. go ahead. its got almost every...no, it has every theme upgrade, not specifics, like wall jumping, but it has the movement shit and the perfect ingame tutorials to where you wouldnt even notice them without the little words on your screen telling you to press the x button, and all that shit. go ahead, unless you already have. anyway, these are freakin' unbelievable, as in amazing! realy fun and educational.


NicknclankNicknclank

2011-11-03 08:30:00

I leave this comment purely in adoration because chances are, considering your popularity, my words will most likely be lost in the fray of frantic fans.
For a very long time there has been a choice I have had to make when deciding what type of video game review I want. The choice has been between two types, ironically both starting with the letter 'c'," cogent or comical. Going to sites like IGN or reading game informer whilst on the toilet have always provided me with coherent pertinent articles relating to video games, but their attempts at humor fell flat.
Meanwhile, if I wanted to watch something humorous pertaining to games I would have to rely on unreliable reviewers like Yahtzee or AVGN. Sure, they both have the sharp pointed wit of Oscar Wilde, but poking fun at a video game hardly constitutes a review, or even demarcates game design knowledge.
Much to my surprise, one of my favorite comedic flash cartoonist, which I had sworn give up in high school when legendary frog "died", started a game review series. I've always thought that a person has to either choose between funny and serious, but apparently there are a select few who can break my mold.
I'm glad you exist as a positive force in the gaming world, as tiny as an internet voice is. I hope your intense following and insane insight into the world of gaming can help you in whatever your chosen career is.
Good luck Mr. Raptor, and again, I don't expect a response, I expect to be lost in your torrential downpour of fans.

It's great to see you're back on track Egoraptor. I really loved Sequelitis Episode 2, a lot of swearing but still really awesome and insightful. It's good that you're doing reviews of sequels you like as well as ones you dislike.

I have a friend who works in a computer-game company and told him to watch your videos to help his company develop games, seeing as you raise some very good points.

Really looking forward to Girlchan Episode 4 - and the chance to update my Girlchan in Paradise Official Fansite!
