One thing of which I am rather fond is the flash series TTA (TvTome Adventures). I created the TVTropes page, actually Blush

The first, sprite-based, episode may not look great, but keep watching and you will be hooked. Later episodes are a combination of sprites and hand drawn. The season finales are completely animated, and with full voice acting!

The plot comes from a freeform RP that took place at TVTome.org

The creator's website is here. You can also see the series on Newgrounds, which does not have the movie or the intros, but lets you leave comments. (This series needs a higher score, from the sheer amount of work that went into it)



Another awesome flash series: In places, Super Mario Bros. Z is actually more action-packed than Dragonball Z ever was, and has all the humour of the Mario RPGs. At the same time, all the Mario and Sonic characters act perfectly in-character at all times (though the villain is made more intimidating than any game could make him).

Each episode seems better than the last. One reviewer claimed that it was so good, it could cure cancer.



And lastly, a rival to SMBZ, this three-part Flash is just very, very well animated.

Tier 5: An expert cartographer or a decent marksman.
Tier 4: An expert marksman.
Tier 3: An expert marksman, cartographer and chef who can tie strong knots and is trained in hostage negotiation or a marksman so good he can shoot down every bullet fired by a minigun while armed with a rusted single-shot pistol that veers to the left.
Tier 2: Someone with teleportation, mind control, time manipulation, intangibility, the ability to turn into an exact duplicate of anything, or the ability to see into the future with perfect accuracy.

Man.... I typed up a long post, and the forum ate it... No energy to retype it now... 


Edit: I'll just briefly summarize what I typed earlier. Google can fill in the rest. Wink

1) Holtzclaw, and/or the Travis and Jonathon show.

2) John Valby a.k.a. Dr. Dirty

3) The audio from an unaired Ren and Stimpy episode that had Ren's "Swedish cousin" in it.

A couple of water benders, a dike, a flaming arrow, and a few barrels of blasting jelly?

Sounds like the makings of a gay porn film.

I know I've heard of it, and at least ten of my friends have heard of it (to say nothing of the people that clearly must exist that have heard of it but that I have no physical proof of).

It's an anime styled 2d fighter that was originally released on PS1, with multiple sequels and incarnations on the PS2 and Xbox. It's possibly one of the deepest and fast paced fighters out there. Guilty Gear is no more however as the team has moved on to create BlazBlue (which should hit the states by the end of the year on PS3).

>_> I know what it is. Sorry, I should have been more clear what I was pointing out. This is for things no-one has likely heard of besides the poster. Guilty Gears is a pretty popular series of games. Smile

Ah, well I only know two other people that have heard of it besides people I've told about the series. So among most people I know it is something I only know about.

Wow, that's pretty crazy.

My friends and I actually played it at school in the once-proud Japanese Media Club for a few weeks (after most of the movies we wanted to watch were shot down for blood and violence - Suicide Circle, Battle Royale, et cetera).

I have it sitting on my shelf, borrowed from a friend, waiting to be read. I have been told that now by three out of three people who have given me their opinion on the book, haha.

Love it! One of, if not the, best console RPGs ever

Hurray, somebody knows it! Big Grin I loved my Dreamcast, and SoA was one of the reasons why (though I must sadly admit that the extended plot in Legends was superior). If there was ever a game which deserves tons more fan art than it gets, this is it... hells, I've never even seen more than one fan art of Belenna/Belezza if you don't include the one I did myself. That's just wrong.

(Related: After what happened in SoA, Talen's setting now includes a "Saint Belenna".)

Loved? Past tense? I still have my dc and play SoA at least once a year. Big Grin

Loved as in "now it sits in my bedroom but isn't actually plugged in, because the one good controller I have left is dead and it's been a bit tricky finding a replacement, and I got Legends which is a bit better even without Cupil bleeping out of my VMU" Tongue But I still love the Dreamcast. Natch.

Do a websearch for 'bridget'.

Yeah, other people have heard of it.

For more fun, do it with images. And with safesearch off.

I don't presume nobody's heard of the stuff I like. I just presume that few people like it for the same reasons I do. Few people exhort the Quest For Glory video game series for their raw sex appeal, for example. If I was going to pull a quicklist out of my most recent batch of random searches and saves, I'd mention Gazillionaire, the Goon Show, I'm Sorry I'll Read That Again, Gilbert and Sullivan, Yahtzee's games, yes, from before he became the Zero Punctuation Callypigian Stallion, the original Sam and Max, the Learning Company's oddly addictive grind-fest video games, Zeliard, Baldur's Gate 2, Terranigma (STILL HAVEN'T FINISHED IT), Final Fantasies six and five (from before when the series turned to superpolygonated introverted mush), Yoshi's Island, Anything gaming-related done by Wesley Weimer, Christopher Hitchens, pharyngula and the soon-to-be-extinct thing that is a far-too-overly-written, I'll- get- around- to- showing- people- eventually- what- do- you- mean- the- game- system- expires- in- a- week setting that is Cobrin'Seil. I've put in enough stuff in this list that you'll be able to point at it and say: HAH! I know about that, your diehard indie cred that lies in liking things that 99.999% of the planet ignores has been entirely dissolved in a puff of premptorious forum pecking order PVP, to which I say, shut up.

I mean, if boytaurs have their own forums, it's almost a hard fact that the internet has a place for the positively sane-and-tame stuff I like.

Yeah, but come on, Gilbert & Sullivan aren't even vaguely obscure, nor is Baldur's Gate II (especially on a gaming forum). You'd prolly be closer to the mark if you listed, say, cunnilingus.

The Goon Show... sure, I'll give you that.

Well, the Goon Show just depends what age you are, and where you grew up. I'm well versed in Spike Milligan (sp?), but I doubt many others are.

Plenty have heard of them. Few have played them. The pictures I have seen look rather uninspiring.
