The-Great-One's News

Posted by The-Great-One - March 28th, 2013

[ Previous Update | Next Update ]

The Interviewer still moves along its way. If you haven't checked out The Interview Codex yet I suggest you do. Not only is it an archive of all the interviews done by The Interviewer, it is a growing one. All new interviews posted on The Interviewer will also be posted in The Interview Codex.

As it is the Interview with WoodTick and Interview with Sarkazm are both up now. So if you haven't checked them out yet then please do! WoodTick is the mind behind In Solitude and Nyan Cat - Genre Hopping while Sarkazm is behind Smile! and LUCKY DAY FOREVER.

Speaking of Genre Hopping, the Monthly Writing Contest 13: Genre Hopping is over. The winners have been announced and you can check them out here. It was fun to be a judge in this contest and read all these entries.

The Newgrounds Annual Tournament of Animation is gonna be starting up again, one of the prizes is going to be an interview with The Interviewer. Among a 1-Year Membership of Adobe Creative Cloud and cash prizes for passing each round, all donated by Newgrounds members. Two past winners include Dave Bruno and Emrox. Competitors in these contests have also been interviewed despite not winning, they are TmsT and Zeurel. The found of NATA has also been interviewed, his name is Adam Witt. The Interviewer has its connections with this tournament and I am proud that it is. If you're an animator then you can enter this tournament. Just check in for the thread on April 1st, the link to it should be on the front page of Newgrounds, so keep your eye out for it.

Tom and I have been talking about the Literature Portal for a while now. He gave me some info that he's thinking about giving Newgrounds an old-school design. When I can get more information about this then I'll update this post. It would be interesting to see an old design of Newgrounds.

Other than that, in this era of video game related review shows, I would like to share one that Newgrounds had. It's called Strategy Guide. There weren't many episodes in this series. Although with gamers and video games growing in number, I think it's time for this show to make a comeback.

Update #4 - Back In Time

Posted by The-Great-One - March 18th, 2013

[ Previous Update | Next Update ]

Newgrounds member deathink is quite possibly one of The Interviewer's biggest fans. For he has mustered his energy together to bring forth something The Interviewer's readers have been wanting for quite sometime now. That is The Interview Codex. So you can read all the interviews in one flash format.

If you haven't already you should follow deathink for more creative things he has to bring to Newgrounds.

Update #3 - The Interview Codex

Posted by The-Great-One - February 27th, 2013

[ Previous Update | Next Update ]

Two new interviews are up on The Interviewer. An Interview with PsychoGoldfish and an Interview with Sabtastic. Also if you're not a fan of my Dohn profile then please start following, recently I had A Conversation with Benjamin Tibbetts, so check that out. If you're a fan of The Interviewer then you should be pleased to know that The Interviewer will be posting new interviews every Wednesday. So you should expect a new interview every week.

If you read the Interview with The Forum Regulars and you're a regular of the Newgrounds Forums then please contact me. I am looking to do a second interview with The Forum Regulars. I am mainly looking for those you normally seen browsing the different forums on Newgrounds.

I am judging a contest that ForNoReason is running where you Create A Newgrounds Commercial. The deadline is April 1st and there aren't that many entries. If you got a camera and some creativity then make a commercial. You could win $25 in Newgrounds Store Credit.

I am also a judge in the Monthly Writing Contest 13: Genre Hopping!. The deadline is March 2nd, which is this Saturday, so if you're a writer and haven't contributed to this contest then you may want to make an entry to submit.

Well here is the first update. Gonna try to do these as more information comes into what I'm working on. Really gonna try to get a lot of my writings here for all of you to see. However I am doing more than writing. First thing is first, The Interviewer will be coming to an end. Not soon, but down the line. At the time, I will feel that I have done all I can with The Interviewer and will be bringing it to an end.

However with that being said, there have been a few new interviews posted. The members of Newgrounds were given a chance to ask Tom Fulp questions in the Interview with Tom Fulp #4. I have also interviewed Wade Fulp, Emrox, who was the winner of the 2012 Newgrounds Annual Tournament of Animation, and CosmicDeath, so go and check all of those out.

ForNoReason has started a contest where you Create A Newgrounds Commercial. In this contest all you have to do is create a commercial advertising Newgrounds. The top three best will win $25 in Store Credit, while the number one best entry will also receive a "super secret awesome prize" alongside an interview with The Interviewer. Not only that, but I'm one of the judges for this contest, so please enter! I am quite eager to see what Newgrounds can come up with.

For those of you who haven't checked this out I urge you to do so, especially if you're a fan of The Interviewer. That is Dohn. An account named after me, where I will be sharing my thoughts on the world as well as conducting interviews that are outside the creative interviews done through The Interviewer. I have recently posted something new there entitled A Conversation with Dean. Newgrounds member Dean and myself discussed video games, in terms of collecting as well as the industry. It was quite fun to do and enlightening as well. If you're a fan of video games then check it out.

Also I created a thread in Clubs & Crews where fans of video game music can talk about their favorite composers, tracks, soundtracks, and the evolution of video game music with one another. I named it Club Stoic, after the name of the club in the video game EarthBound. If you are a fan of video game music or music in general, then please join us.

That's all I got for now. We shall rendezvous when more information is gathered.

Posted by The-Great-One - October 1st, 2012

Hello Newgrounds members. It is the month of October again. Don't get me wrong, I love Halloween and I'm sure many others here do. Before we start thinking of the wonderful color of orange, give some thought to the color pink. I am a supporter of supporting the fight against not only breast cancer, but many other forms of cancer and this is a time when we can all pitch in.

What is Breast Cancer?

First off I think it is important to answer the question of what is cancer. Why? Because chances are most people who don't know what breast cancer is probably don't even know what cancer is. So here we go...

Cancer is a disease that occurs when cells become abnormal and divide without control or order. Each organ in the body is made up of various kinds of cells. Cells normally divide in an orderly way to produce more cells only when they are needed. This process helps keep the body healthy. If cells divide when new cells are not needed, they form too much tissue. This extra tissue, called a tumor, can be benign or malignant.

Benign tumors are not cancer. Eighty percent of all breast tumors are benign. They can usually be removed, and, in most cases, they don't come back. Most important, the cells in benign tumors do not invade other tissues and do not spread to other parts of the body. Benign breast tumors are not life-threatening.

Malignant tumors are cancer. The cancer cells grow and divide out of control, invading and damaging nearby tissues and organs. Cancer cells can also break away from the original tumor and enter the bloodstream or lymphatic system. This is how breast cancer spreads and forms secondary tumors in other parts of the body. This spread of cancer is called metastasis.

Breast cancer is cancer that forms in tissues of the breast, usually the ducts (tubes that carry milk to the nipple) and lobules (glands that make milk). It occurs in both men and women, although male breast cancer is rare.

So fellas out there, although it is rare, you could get breast cancer as well. It is important to bring this up and to also support in getting the word out as well as finding a cure and doing whatever you can to help.

So that is why I support the National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

What is the National Breast Cancer Awareness Month?

The National Breast Cancer Awareness Month is an annual international health campaign organized by major breast cancer charities every October to increase awareness of the disease and to raise funds for research into its cause, prevention, diagnosis, treatment and cure. The campaign also offers information and support to those affected by breast cancer. As well as providing a platform for breast cancer charities to raise awareness of their work and of the disease, BCAM is also a prime opportunity to remind women to be breast aware for earlier detection.

If you're a woman or a man with a girlfriend, fiancee, wife, mother, sister, or close cousin then it is important that you know what the stages are in both men and women as well as who you can contact to find out more.

Where can I get contact information?

Well the site I already mentioned The National Breast Cancer Awareness Month site has a good bit of information. However I can give some of the information to you below here.

- American Cancer Society

- Cancer Research

I know that this whole news post sounds preachy, but this is truly something I support and try to get word out on. No type of cancer is good and although Newgrounds makes plenty of jokes about it I know I do, when it comes down to reality, it's not a joke.

So I ask that you kindly take time out, to sit down with your family or friends and possibly talk about this if you haven't been to the doctor in a while or if there is something amiss. If you're family and friends are already doing fine then I ask instead that you lend out your hand to help others.

Hold an event in your town, neighborhood, or city. Try to do something at your school, local business, or college. To get the word out and help others if you can. There are other ways you can help by going to a Making Strides event near you. Help by collecting money to donate to fight against cancer. Try to get media attention from your area.

I wish to fight against any and all cancers, it already took one of our beloved Newgrounds members Edd Gould, I don't want to lose another Newgrounds member to cancer or anybody else. If there is anything that could be done to prevent, treat, or at the very least, make the final days be better then I don't see why someone of good health can't do their part to help one another.

Posted by The-Great-One - February 9th, 2012

The Newgrounds redesign has come and with it a new review system. The 0-10 has been taken away and has thus been replaced with a stars system. Now some people are saying that it's the same with a bit of different math, however that can get confusing. So I'm redoing these terms again to accommodate the new system. Also I've decided to drop the word flash since it's pretty much an outdated term when it comes to the many different programs used to create animations and games.

This is a basic scale in which you will see in my movie and game reviewing. If you want me to review one of your submissions then kindly leave me a comment here with the URL to it or send me a PM.

I will always label submissions on the cheers, jeers scale. Cheers means I liked it, I have praise to say, kudos. Jeers means I didn't like it, I loathe it, I have criticisms to make.


= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =
This can vary depending on what your movie or game was supposed to be about. I look at what kind of style you're representing and what all you bring. If you use another persons art (unless they're credited as co-author) such as sprites or if the presentation is entirely video then you will not receive points.

This counts in every movie and game, even ones involving sprites. Everything must move nice and smooth. If your submission is entirely live action then it won't count, unless with the use of special effects. This is one of the crucial parts next to artwork, if it doesn't move properly then it will cost you.

Presentation [ Games Only ]
This will now represent the artwork and animation in a game, since both together are required for a better experience. While in movies, the animation could be done differently from the artwork and one could look better than the other and the movie could still come off well. With games both are needed.

This is an overall scoring of all sound effects presented in the submission. Sound effects are crucial, if they don't match with the animation then it won't be presentable. When I say sound I mean sound, this doesn't count in voice acting or background music. I will grade everything from the title screen, menu, movie/game, all the way to the credits and easter eggs.

We have the Audio Portal. There are many talented musicians there. If you pick a good song from there and it matches well with your movie or game as background music, then you won't have much of a problem. Using commercial music is a bit trickier to manage, so choose wisely.

With the advent of the Audio Portal comes a lot of great voice actors as well. The voices must sync up properly, the voice actor must match the character and sound well. We don't need any pops or hisses or sound like that all the voice work was recorded in an air duct.

Story / Concept
This is how the movie or game was pretty much written. Everything has a story or in most cases with games a concept. Is this a story that we go from point A to point B? Is it a parody? Is it just something neat? I grade on writing quite highly so I hope you have a story or a concept that will keep me entertained.

Controls [ Games Only ]
When it comes down to games, the most crucial part is being able to actually play it. If your controls work well you will get high points. If not, then not only will I be ticked off, but you'll certainly get some nasty words and criticism from me. Oh yeah and it'll cost ya.

Gameplay [ Games Only ]
No this isn't the same as Concept or Controls. Being able to play the game is nice, but how well does it play. An example is it's easy to make Mario run and jump, but where does he need to go and what's the best way to get him there?
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

So how do you get ranked in all these? Well with my rankings system of course. There are seven different rankings you can get and depending on what is in your movie or game depends on if you get graded on it or not.

I can offer out a total of 5 Stars in each grade giving either Cheers or Jeers. Cheers are good stars while Jeers are bad stars. They will all go to your score no matter what. There is no real deduction off your overall score just the ranking you get. We'll go from highest to lowest.

= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =
Masterful - [ 5 Stars ]
These are rarely handed out, when they are though I truly mean it. It means that whatever was ranked with this is in my eyes perfect, no flaws whatsoever that I can see. There are some movies and games that have gotten ranked in all Masterful and thus I have them compiled in my Masterful List.

Superb - [ 4 - 4.5 Stars ]
It wasn't perfect, but chances are I found something to nitpick about it or it just didn't meet that really high mark. This is still good though and it shows that your work is above average.

Great - [ 3.5 Stars ]
You did an awesome job, were there some other things you could have done? Absolutely. However it is important that you learn and improve from this point.

Good - [ 2.5 - 3 Stars ]
You know what you're doing, but this means average at best. There is certainly room for improvement and you at least got the tools and the knowledge to grow.

Okay - [ 2 Stars ]
Good enough to pass, but not good enough to be anything fantastic either. You need to really listen to the criticisms I and others give you if I give you this score.

Bad - [ 1 Star ]
Not one of the worst things in the world, but could certainly be a lot better. Chances are you did something wrong and it needs to be fixed.

Terrible - [ 0 Stars ]
This is rarely used and for good reason. You can get no further down than this. A zero is the worst thing to get and it's the worse thing I like to hand out, but I will do it if I have to.

Confused - [ ? Points ]
If I don't quite understand what you're saying then you will get this. It's not a bad thing... it's just I don't understand what you're doing.

Glitch - [ -2 Points ]
This is a bad thing and I will deduct quite a bit from your overall score because of this. You should always check through a game for any glitches. I can understand sometimes if you miss a glitch, hey it happens... but I will still deduct.

Bonus Point - [ Rounding ]
This affects your overall score only. I will round your score up or down depending on the movie or game if I'm not at an exact number.
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =
If you want your movie or game reviewed then just send me a PM or Leave A Comment below. Also for all those who commented on the previous Flash Review Terms, then I thank you and would like to apologize for deleting your comments.

Hello Newgrounds. For those of you who know me, know that I am a regular of the Video Game Forum here on Newgrounds. I tend to speak what's on my mind from time to time and I like to gather feedback. However those are threads and threads tend to be lost in obscurity as time goes by. So I have decided to post them here for you to read and comment on.

If you want me to discuss something about gaming then please feel free to mention it, I am more than willing to take suggestions. Keep in mind though that I haven't played every single game in the world and don't have the funds to do so, but that doesn't mean I don't have an opinion.

If you have a suggestion about someone on Newgrounds who should be interviewed then suggest it here on this page. You can send me a message as well. Please don't suggest yourself for an interview unless you really think you deserve to be interviewed... remember I still have to give readers an interesting read.

Please be sure to read, comment, and share with your friends across the Newgrounds Community.


Posted by The-Great-One - December 15th, 2008

Well Newgrounds. It seems I have finally come across a movie or game in which I can honestly give out a Masterful Review to. I hardly ever give out reviews like this so if you want to give it a try then read my Review Terms and see if your work can be known worthy as a Masterful.

1. These Pancakes Are Tiny
The first movie I have seen on Newgrounds that I can truly award a perfect score to. The story is simple in itself, two friends who are bickering, go to a restaurant, and argue over their meal. However instead of going over the top, it remains subtle and realistic in its delivery. The comedic timing is perfect, the animation is wonderful from the movements of the characters to their expressions, it is just all around perfect and makes me laugh each time I watch it.

2. -Play-
This movie returns to the old art of animation and that is frame-by-frame work with carefully made decisions. The artwork is rotoscoped movements, but have been traced frame-by-frame. It presents a certain appeal forgotten or not known by others known as Stomp. It is a simple movie, but simplicity certainly does have it here.

3. The Liar - Part 1, Part 2, and Part 3
To save time I just counted the review of Part 3 as the review for all three. This series was certainly and interesting one. It's a simplistic renaissance storyline that can be enjoyable and entertaining for any and all audiences. It is an underrated movie that certainly deserves more attention than it has gotten. It tells of a king who has come across a golden apple and will present it to whoever can tell the best lie. Parts 1 and 2 are played for comedic aspects while Part 3 hits it hard. An old man approaches the king to tell his lie. That's all I'm gonna say, because I don't want to spoil it. These three are truly gems.

4. How Are You Now?
This movie was made for the Sichuan Earthquake Relief. It's story is about a little girl trapped in the rubble of the aftermath of an earthquake. She is simply there speaking with a boy who is also with her. Their conversation is that of how and what children normally talk about. She is then pulled from the rubble. It truly is an amazing movie in its story, but the animation as well is very captivating. It is one that really makes you think about life and the human beings who inhabit this big beautiful blue marble.

5. War, Snow and Fire
A simple fairytale is presented here. A little girl comes across a strange egg, upon taking care of it, it hatches into a dragon. Over the course of many years it grows into a large dragon. Her father is in the military at this time and looks to destroy his enemies. When he discovers the dragon he wishes to use it as a weapon while his daughter wants to keep it as a pet. It is a remarkable story, animated very well, and with HappyHarry's amazing score wraps it up beautifully.

6. The Ballad of CrippleKane
Time to enter the old west. I have to admit that this style of animation I'm not entirely too keen on. Each time I've seen this kind of animation I usually think laziness. But boy does it work with the western genre. This movie has a simple yet exciting western story to tell about CrippleKane, an interesting character in his own right due to him being a cripple. It will have you hooked from beginning to end.

7. Pixel
The first game to enter this list. The goal is to shoot other enemy ships to gather their pixels. You lose health each time you fire your gun, but you gain it back each time you collect an enemy's pixels, which can shoot off more pixels and destroy more enemies. It can get chaotic in a hurry. Truly a fun game in which hours upon hours can be wasted on.

8. Tarboy
The movie I have anticipated and that others will call overrated... this is Tarboy. The story of higher power and wealthier robots, working the less than best robots into slavery. Upon dieing these robots are dumped into the tar pits. Their computer chips would melt into the tar and thus create Tarboy who would go to avenge the slave robots. However he would be vanquished, but Tarboy may rise again. It is just a very fun and beautiful piece of animation with James Lee's animating mixed with Hania Lee's score, it comes out perfect.

This is an amazing movie that literally comes out of nowhere from an artist that seemed untalented at first. This movie is quite breathtaking and has an interesting story to tell at that, it's one that can be interpreted in many different ways and it is one I ensure you watch.

10. Bear Bear
This wonderful movie has won the Daily Feature award, and deserves that award and in this critic's opinion it deserves more. A movie that seems like an endearing tale much like a depressed version of Winnie-The-Pooh, turns into a tense horror movie that will have you on the edge of your seat.

11. Paper Mario Madness
A Madness Day movie has hit this list. Some may not see why it is here, but to answer those. It is here for the same reason that "I'm Still Here" has made this list. I have chosen it because of the creativity and how well it uses the subject matter from both Paper Mario and Madness and blends them together very well. From beginning to end it appears as a Mario movie, but with the Madness styled characters and animation it truly does stand as a Madness movie. If you haven't seen this one yet you really should.

12. Redhand
This movie evaded my eyes and it also seems to evaded many others as well. Many different people from Newgrounds have contributed to it and as far as a stick figure movie goes, this truly shines because of the immense detail given to each character from style all the way down to voice. If you haven't seen this movie yet then you really should, it is one you shouldn't miss out on.

13. Super Puzzle Platformer
The second game to enter this list, this is amazing to play. There is so much multitasking and chaos to see here. You are in a pit of blocks with spikes underneath you. Blocks fall from above and upon shooting if they match colors they destroy other blocks. You have to make sure not to hit the spikes though. This game is the pinnacle of multitasking, but unlike "Defend Your Trump" it slowly eases you into it. It is all wrapped up in one nice package, truly a perfect game.

I know what you're thinking. He's a brony therefore he would give this a perfect score. I understand that, but that's not why. Yes I am a brony, I like My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic and that is what drew me to this movie. However as other bronies will tell you, I'm not as involved in the show as they are. However when I see this movie, the art, animation, music, voice acting, and especially the story are all hilarious. Every time I watch this movie I laugh and I laugh hard. It brings forth the same style that was presented in the "Ren & Stimpy" cartoon while adding its own spin. All in all it is a brilliantly put together piece of animation.

15. 3rd Grade Transformers
I feel bad for neglecting to review this one for so long. From growing up with Egoraptor's movies, I have to admit that this is his best work in my opinion. His humor of screams and yells which can seem out of place in his video game parodies, really works here. The concept of parodying Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, by using a 3rd Grade Play is pure genius. The timing of each joke and the pacing makes this an overall perfect comedy. Another mention is that the music done by HappyHarry is perfect as always, I honestly don't know why he doesn't do music more... he is an amazing musician. All in all if you haven't seen this Egoraptor movie yet or you want something different from his usual stuff, then I urge you to check this out.

16. Out of Order 1
Saw this one on the front page. Thought it would be one thing, but instead got something completely different. It is about a society who had one rule, to solve all of their conflicts with chess. However that rule ended up being broken and therefore anarchy and chaos would reign. One character by the name of Bro has tried to escape many times and failed, so he is about ready to hang himself, when a shuttle is shot down. A young woman emerges and is chased by three men, Bro saves her and we end there. The dystopia presented in its variety of colors as well as the colorful characters are very appealing. It is a beautiful movie to see from beginning to end and I can't wait to see what else is in store for this new series.

17. One and One Story
For those who know me as a gamer know that I am not a fan of Art Games. This is not only the third game to hit my Masterful List, but it is the first Art Game to do so. One thing that separates this Art Game from others is that it has gameplay (ha ha). Seriously though, it does have gameplay, it is a puzzle platformer that introduces new mechanics as you progress through it and ties it in with a love story that changes depending on the beautiful background scenery in the game. It truly is a beautiful story, with beautiful visuals, and very interesting gameplay and tight controls. If you're looking to make an Art Game or present some sort of message through a game, then this would be a prime example of how to do it correctly.

18. Why Am I Dead
An absolutely wonderful murder mystery game. The style, the concept, the game, and most of all the story were all amazing and complimented each other. Nothing seemed out of place and it all came together beautifully. With two different endings, each with a different plot twist to them, which both caught me by surprise. The characters, the setting, the music, and the sound effects were all done well. Quite the game if you haven't played it yet.

19. Blume
Submitted for the 2013 Newgrounds Annual Tournament of Animation Open Round, the movie has to follow the theme of "A New Holiday". This not only does the theme justice, but is a damn good movie in its own right. The world is beautiful and matches its story. The real selling point though is the narrator, or more appropriate, the storyteller. It can be interpreted in different ways depending on the viewer. This has to be seen.

20. Sinmara Saga
Described as a love letter to JRPGs, it does not disappoint on that notion. The animation in this is truly what is perfect throughout the entire thing. It is just amazing to watch these two human forms take shape. You can feel every single strike, every single motion, and become enraptured. If you're a fan of JRPGs or even anime then I must implore you to check this out!

21. Help Wanted: Must Be Human (2016)
When I saw a demonic looking bunny on the frontpage I had a feeling I was gonna be in for a treat. Boy was I. It has one small jumpscare that was subtle in its delivery that got me. The story a little simple, it is all in how you deliver it and this movie delivered. If you haven't seen this spectacle yet, you should. There's even a small background joke involving Donkey Kong.
