Well the writing insults aren't just a slap in the face to you. With GFG3 in particular, the two of us pretty much came up with the idea in an IM window and loved it. Then we were faced with the problem of how we show the whole ass ds game go down, and Frank stepping in and made that whole thing work. So don't feel like you're at fault there.

They can't offer any real comments because these people don't know how to articulate a thought. They also don't know what the difference is between good and bad writing. They don't understand how jokes are set up. They just like "random" stupid shit, they like being spoken down to, and they love it when characters drop F bombs. Even the people who hated it and tried to explain why they hated it obviously don't get that we're just trying to have a bit of fun with the subject matter (see: me apparently not understanding why there is a last copy to begin with).

But yeah, it's hard to bitch about it without sounding like a big baby. "Waaa, they don't like our work but they like X, Y, and Z. Waaaa" I've been doing this for close to three years now, and while I've adjusted to shitty comments for the most part, the stuff coming from Gametrailers is the worst I have ever had to deal with.

don't forget steve...these are the same people that give AVGN high scores. While i like AVGN...most of his scripts mainly consist of screaming and cursing.

Can you disable the comments on gametrailers show they don't show up? I know you can do that on youtube, so maybe you can shut them up.

that was really not funny. it might have been funny if it was true, but this doesnt make any sense. the last copy of a game is never open if its a new game. maybe if they were talking about used games or something, but even then the joke wouldnt really work or be funny at all. i think the people that made this should really think up better jokes and fast, or at least ones that make sense. this is worse then ctr alt delete.

Maybe it's right in my face, but what is ctr alt delete? I know it makes windows task manager come up, but is it a shitty flash cartoon or something?
If you haven't already, maybe update your subscription with a pleasant:
We appreciate positive comments, but if you are giving constructive criticism make sure that your batting average is higher than ours or we won't take your suggestion seriously. If you dislike our flash, kindly tell us why. Use of swearing automatically labels you scum of the net. Also, use of word fail will unfortunately drive a floating dick up your 12 year-old ass.

If I ever get my cartoon off the ground and into Newgrounds I'm doing this.

I don't know what ctrl alt del means either aside from shutting down windows.

You guys just need to do a Jay and Silent Bob. Visit everyone who wrote a negative comment about you and beat the shit out of them or maybe we all just need a little Gotham City in our hearts.

I think one day NG and GT will just get so sick of comments that they'll remove commenting altogether and replace it with video comments only. And with the obvious physical problems most commentors have, no 12 year-old will ever say anything AGAIN.

thanks to everyone's support. really! even though i felt like we were very well received for the most part, reading crappy comments can really make you fell like shit.

we really do have friends at NG and GT, otherwise they would'nt have put us up on the front pages for both sites. that means something to me anyways.

My personal favourite is the bums teeth spinning around his mouth. Don't think I don't remember that from Jacquo's Carol, cuz I does.


That was my favorite part in Jacquo's Carol. When I saw the bum redesign I was a little disappointed, but once his teeth started spinning I knew all was well. I didn't really get what was going on (I just realized that BSG might stand for BattleStar Gallactica, but isn't that a sci-fi show? Is this the kind of thing they do on that show?), but it doesn't take a genius to realize that picking up a video game with your butt and dropping it into a cup for the purpose of gambling is funny.

I don't think the writing is the weak link. All the characters are behaving just the way they should, which is something that I can never figure out how to do.

You have to tune out all the idiotic comments. Kids think that being on the internet gives them license to be racist, homophobic scumbags, and what's even worse is that they think it's funny. I've had a few "People are scum and I hate everyone" moments this week, so I sort of know how it feels. The important thing is that people whose opinions are worth something like your work. Today it was featured on the front page of Cold Hard Flash, which is very very cool.

Also, Jacquo lifting up his coat and bending over blew my mind.
