New Series + Will Draw to Help Japan!

2011-03-21 03:50:12 by Egoraptor

Hey everyone!

I've got a new series out called Sequelitis! It's a funny and slightly educational look at sequels and the relationship they have with their predecessors, take a look! It's got animation, jokes, and YEAH!

Full-on animation has been a little slow lately which is why there's been a bit of radio silence on NG (and I'm kinda lazy) but it will pick up. Sequelitis Episode 2 is on the way, and after that, I'm thinkin Girlchan. It's about time I announced some shit about the Girlchan Character Contest. Yes there are winners!! There are actually THREE GRAND PRIZE WINNERS. Can you believe it?!?!?!?!?!?!

Also, the earthquakes in Japan really rocked shit up. Sharkrobot, Magfest and I teamed up to bring you a charity auction on Ebay where I will draw you anything you desire, and all proceeds will go to the Red Cross efforts in Japan! Sounds cool? Go bid!!

Make sure to follow me on Twitter (@egoraptor) and "Like" me on Facebook (Egoraptor on Facebook!) 'Cause I update there for a lot of miscellaneous things.

That was.... really super enjoyable. Great job. Excited to see the next part of Girlchan though. WHAT WOULD I DO WITHOUT IT? No, seriously.

Wouldn't you accumulate more money if you also to draw anything for anyone for a standard fees instead of an auction?

That way...if you charge 25 dollars per drawing...you could potentially have up to 50 people who would want a physical drawing and autograph from "Egoraptor".

A single auction is a good idea...but I think you'll accumulate more money if you hire yourself out.

I'm just starting my next game and I'm gonna take this to heart. I've been doing a lot of thinking about what's been really wrong with what I've been doing and I think a lot of it is what you're talking about here.

Players want guidance, progression, game play that's divided into small digestible pieces with little rewards that combine to make bigger digestible pieces with bigger rewards, all guided by simple logical explanations and game play that's genuinely fun, not just addicting because of its repetitive nature and carrot waving.

I enjoy your take on the whole video game retrospective genre. I didn't think id be able to get into it since so many others have already covered this ground, but I found myself enjoying this more then the average AVGN episode. Especially when you started to go into more in depth things such as color palette, which I cant say I've ever seen anyone do before. So I tip my hat to the man that put a new breath of life into a tired genre. Good day sir.

dude, that was incredibly fun to watch and really informative all at once. i wasn't a gamer growing up, so i haven't played alot of the old classics, yet I was able to fully understand your points about these two games. plus, you have an excellent voice for this sort of thing. i know that your passion is animating, but i think you could have a career as a voice actor if you wanted to. Looking forward to Sequelitis and the next Girlchan ep. Keep rocking!

Really impressed with Sequelitis. Not only amusing but generally an excellent analysis, I really look forward to future installments.

Also well done on the charity gig, that's really good of you. I wish you success on all your upcoming projects.

This pleased me.

I have to admit, I dislike games that force you to grind, even in RPGs, I believe that it is simply an artificial way to make the game harder or longer. The best RPG games should allow you to be at an appropriate level at any point in the game by simply fighting most of the enemies that happen to be in your way up until that point. Tri-Crescendo have been very good at that (although one of their games does defeat the point of thing by having a point in the game with needlessly long and almost empty corridors that take about 10 minutes to walk from one end to the other).

Of course, this does present a problem in creating difficulty in an RPG, but it is possible to do (see Tales of Vesperia. Possible to complete by simply fighting most enemies, but not overly easy to do so. It's not the hardest game in the world, but it has reasonable difficulty, and optional challenges in boss fights keep them interesting).

Very nice. Occasionally I thought you were getting into an exaggerated state for humor's sake, but it never went overboard and in fact helped compliment the rest of the video (somehow). Your reasoning is easy to understand and your points are valid. It was all presented in such a way that you didn't sound elitist, 'pro', or in any way more important than a typical player, which was refreshing. In fact, I'd say the overarching feeling in the comparisons between the two wasn't anger (like so many fans feel when their expectations are dashed on the rocks) but more of a subtle disappointment. It was also interesting to see you connect these points to the later entries in the series. You're right, they are similar for all the reasons that Castlevania II was bad, but it pulls it off somehow with shiny lights, etc.

I'm an avid Castlevania fan and I really appreciated this.

i'm actually not surprised that you picked three winners instead of one since there has been so many great drawings of new characters for Girlchan. i cant wait to see who you picked for the contest. also, will you be voice acting the contest winners' characters?

I think it's great that you are helping out Japan along with others. And your new series is very good! Can't wait for the next episode.

Your animations are always great... but THIS ... this series... seriously, the humor is relentless, literally a laugh out loud (in my head) moment almost every 2 seconds.

Script and voicing are off the charts. I hope this shit takes off. Accurate critique + Ego's voice is unstoppable.

I am officially a fan-boy.

Go Japan!

Here's a game and it's sequel that don't mix.

Xenosaga 1 and Xenosaga 2, If you want a long list of things to compare between this is the next game you should do!

I love you, you are my favorite animator
I loved Sequelitis, it makes soooo much sense
I never looked at it that way before
I hate games that make you have to do all of this extra shit smh

2011-03-22 16:18:49

that,s the problem the modern day games are all just a flash in the pan or a cheep not even similar knockoff of the original games that brought meaning into this world now these days all people care about is either how many heads can i chop off and shove down there poophole or how much the graphics look good it,s like it almost real or look i earned an impossibly hard achievement and i am going to poke my friends about it the very soul of gaming like this has turned into a mindlessly unending show of competition the big game industry,s use to sell add ons and such to the public it's quite sad really
