The way I see it, the common pattern is one: fanatism is easy, and a slippery slope.
YOU ARE A COMMUNIST NAZI JEW CONSPIRACY (um) REPTILIAN FASCIST HILTER FOR CORRUPTING OUR CHILDREN'S YOUTH (or something)
(sorry, couldn't resist)
It is interesting to see this from a perspective of a country with free education. In my country (Greece), University education is free, and Universities have no "board of directors" giving instruction to professors about how they should do their classes.
STILL, most of the professors prefer the "I-talk-you-listen" doctrine you described, and you know why? Because requires less work (and fewer actual teaching skills) on their part. So it seems that this diseased tree of useless lecturing has quite a lot of roots.
Great job with the video, as always.
You know what my problem is with your videos? I rate them at 5 stars half way through, then watch the rest of the video, and here comes another half video of AWESOME, and I cannot give you any more stars.
It's really depressing, at times. Great work, man.
This is way nicer than I deserve.
Interesting approach, but what about communication? I think those you end up close to are the ones that you can (not necessarily from the beginning, but eventually) communicate with. And no, I don;t believe you can (learn to) communicate with everyone at the same level.
Anyway, great work, as always! And very enjoyable style :)
Oh, I agree with you, but generally speaking our circle begins with those in proximity, and we branch out from there.
I'm glad you enjoyed it, though!
Amazing style! I cannot wait to see the full thing
But please remember, when holding the sword in the scabbard, you keep you thumb on the handguard (to ensure the sword doesn't accidentally unseath, and to prevent a sneaky enemy from drawing your own blade). It may be a bit too late to change it now, but keep that in mind for future installments (as I suspect this will become quite popular)!
Amazing video, very well-made, as can be said for the music.
But what really caught my attention is that this is the first time a creator understands that the index finger does not lie inside the trigger unless you are about to shoot. I know this may be a minor detail, but it usually bugs me in other videos, so well done XD
A decent parody
Most of the parts you have included have been made fun of already, but you touched a few new aspects. The art was decent, and the music was indeed very nice.
I also HAD to give you a higher score since you resisted the urge to make an arrow to the knee joke.
yuupers I had come to realise that. lol I should have done my homework first. lol and I didn't even know that knee joke had been over done till only a few days ago. thank goodness I didn't add that in lol.
Your videos are finally back to being the funniest thing on Newgrounds! Good to have you back.
But I think the suspense of whether that was a reference to the (in)famous arrow to the knee joke will kill more than a few people... myself included.
...not even one reference to the 'over 9000' line? I am impressed.
I really don't now if that cost you 2 points or earned you 8.
...I think after this nobody will ever think that the pink Power Ranger is the gayest.
In all seriousness, however, your animation skill are very good and you also did a good job keeping this at a small filesize, a job most animators cannot or will not do (it loaded almost instantly).
Keep up the good work, though I would also prefer to see something more original from one as skilled as you. You could try your own script and see how that goes!
