It's been years since I've seen Nameless. I grew up with the series and was a big fan while I was in high school.
Now that I'm out of college and am in the real world, I was surprised Yotam had created Nameless 7 on one of my random trips to NG.
After years and years of laughing at this awesome series, it still has the same charm, goofiness, and silliness I've enjoyed and laughed at when I was in high school.
In a nutshell, this flash was nostalgic, hilarious, and heartfelt. Thanks Yotam. You've still got it dude!
A wonderful message to our utterly boring friends
I have always been captivated by your style of art and continually intrigued by your vivid selection of music to account for the tone of the piece.
Firstly, your selection of music for this is fantastic. Your art style of an enchanting forest accompanied by a "fairy-talk" folk-esque background music works very well. Your selection of music could easily be distinguished as the icing on the cake.
Your characters are well drawn and more importantly, characterized very well. It is obvious through the voice of Draconius that he is an utterly boring individual, and really needs to have some redeeming value to his life, rather that sit on his ass watching television and jerking off to fairy bestiality pornography for the seventh time today. Gigantor is a very well placed character with a great voice to accompany. I do enjoy his blunt and pushy attitude that can easily be seen through his facial expressions and inflection in voice.
The background is very minimal, but it seems that it was intended to be minimal, as the focus of the cartoon is a response to our boring friends and family consistently talking about their boring lives doing everyday tasks. It's not everyday we see our good friends fighting jade monkey dragons or impaling themselves with their heads.
The humor is fantastic. I really enjoy the blunt and straightforward sense you went for. It really helps with the characterization of Gigantor and Draconius through things that you and I have experienced (the friend who is a boring dickweed that has nothing interesting to say, even when we try and throw them a bone and make them seem more interesting than they really are.)
The overall message is one that I believe people should be spreading. Just because someone has a mouth doesn't mean they should talk all the time. I have recently seen a "friend," of mine on Facebook that posted a status of ,"should I go with the song lyric status, or what I'm doing right now with sitting at the computer? What am I going to do?" When I see this now, I want to erase said people from society, and your cartoon is a prime example of how people really don't need to hear how boring you are, because life itself is dull and repetitive. Whoop-de-freakin' do. I posted the link to this cartoon in response to her crap of the minute status and now she hates me more than ever.
I am glad you have created this wonderful message in a colorful and humorous fashion. I will be definitely recommending this cartoon to all my friends, as I continue to lose facebook friends, I can say, "Thank you," for helping me push your message across to all the morons that continue to believe their lives are the least bit interesting when they get a meatball sub from subway with an extra meatball.
Great work again, I enjoy all your flash works, and I try to stay away from the, "[insert quote from the movie here]" or "Dat wuz awsum mayke moar plz." review.
thanks for the review. lets alienate ourselves from society TOGETHER. they're not worth our time.
On the Contrary Side
I actually thought that this was a pretty funny cartoon. I actually laughed a lot! The short lived characters are actually quite humorous, especially Ken and Immune Ian. I guess the "funniness" is more of an opinion rather than a statistic. The graphics were great and the animation was sleek as an F-51. Good work with the animation, however the sound was a bit cackly here and there, especially with Immune Ian.
Thanks, finally someone reviewing the graphics and animation! thanks a lot!
Total rip-off of "The Summoner Geeks" try and make something original dude, I hate seeing good talent like yours going to waste.
It's ok, but put to shame by 8-Bitch-Fyve
This is a good flash. You've got excellent potential. However, it's rip-off work of the 8-Bit Theater series. Make up a new idea instead of spinning off other people's work. It may be tough to think up new ideas, but i'm sure you can do it. You've got great flash skills. Plus, this is REALLY put to shame by 8-Bitch-Fyve. No joke man.
You sir, are a flash god. That was so freakin hilarious!!!
It's ok, but nothing new
It's alright, kinda funny because it's an asian kid, but if you were a bit more creative and added in some more stuff i think it would have been so much better.
SWEET!! I have the full version too!
Sweet game, i have the full version once i saw this lil thing. Lots of things are different though. Like there's no PvP and u can use most of the skills like theif can kick sand and swordy can provoke. it's pretty flippin sweet. search on google for it if u want it illegally but u can always do what i did and fly to japan ^^
What the fuck!?
That was the most random shit i've seen. I like. Puttin this on favorites. Weird as hell. I like the bear blowing stuff up though.
Your style, sound, and graphics were great. Your humor however, I didn't really get it >_> probably cuz i'm not the type to enjoy random inane nonsensical humor. But maybe for others it would have been better. I liked your style though. Good job!
