BigAppleCon, MGScollab, Rise of Pbot, Hulk.

Posted by MindChamber - June 15th, 2008


last week and the weekend before was pretty busy around here. Personally I used the week to finish up my collab piece, and shake off the buzz from the BigApple Con. So heres my thoughts on a couple of things,

A)

BigAppleCon was great. It was pretty damn awesome to meet such an amped up and excited group of NG fans. Catching that vibe was totally invigorating and helps me and Im sure alot of us to push forward.
The booth ran great I thanks to the awesome fans and artist and rallied by my side to make this possible. Everyone was who helped was really appreciated, and I just want to say it again, thanks. Nothing gets the point of a 'Site run by fans and artist' across better, than a booth run by fans and artists. Everything I feel about what went down, Luis already explained in his blog, I just want further state that this is exactly how I feel as well. Seriously. Thanks.
Also The booth looked pretty awesome and here's to hoping for a more impressive one the next time we do this.

B)
Metal gear Collab is looking pretty awesome (pun intended). I sat through a bunch of submissions, and alot of them are actually funny.. Gasp! After my little rest up I finally sat down and finished my collab piece for the collection (I actually have two, but the first one is really just a simple gag).
As you can see from the pic, Fred just caught Snake stealing his Fruity Pebbles. Yes, It is as stupid as it sounds. I say if I added up the hours it took to complete this it would be around 2 and a half days.
so don't expected the hottest animation in the bunch, but you can definitely expect the dumbest. XP

C)
Now that all my little side jobs are out of way, im gearing up to get ready to work on a big NG game with Tom once hes off castlecrashers. This doesnt mean I've forgotten about my Rise of P-bot cartoon. Its definitely coming along. Just a bit more, slowly. I also decided to make a game that coincides with the release of the cartoon, and that's being programmed by Frostedmuffins, the programmer for redbaron. So doing the art for the game and the movie at the same time cause a few hiccups here and there, but it is coming along.

D)
This weekend I saw the new Hulk movie. All I can say is, Shit that was great. Originally I wasn't going to. A lot of bad press and negative hype almost doomed this movie in to a DVD rental for me. Then I realized that what I was doing was exactly the same thing that happens at NG , I was letting the opinions of a few elitists judge for me what is, and is not entertainment. Well fuck that, fuck them! I needed to see how bad this movie was for myself.
And I'm so glad I did.
In a nutshell the Hulk plays out like a mixture of "The Fugitive", "King Kong" and a dash of "American Werewolf in London," for good measure. All of this is interwoven with great dialogue, and at times even better acting. The movie really captures the destitute life of Bruce Banner, and the curse he bares. Something that the show did very well. (While on that subject, fans of the original show will definitely be in for a treat)
There aren't many action scenes, but the ones there are incredibly visceral and violent. The Introduction to each creature was done exceptional well, revealing only bits and pieces of anatomy using a documentary style of filming. Even without these sparse CG scenes the story is still strong enough to keep you interested in the characters. Granted there are a few silly moments towards the end, but if you never had a problem with the ridiculously cheesy microwave gun at the end of "Batman Begins", then you won't even flinch with these. The Hulk model still looks fake, but at least he isn't neon green like the first movie. I still believe if they simply kept the face real and kept the body CG this wouldn't be an issue. It worked great for Mr Hyde, but I'm sure the reasoning is that the far set eyes and monkey like nose of the Hulk is something that is iconic of the character and cant be realistically done with a human face.
either case.
It was excellent and I rank it up there with Ironman.

Isn't it Bruce Banner?

nerd

I wonder if you saw my MGS entry... I wonder if you laughed...

im not gonna get anything from that collab, but i can't wait for it.

get any jokes that is... ): sorry

very few of the gags have anything to do with the game itself.

Awesome.
+1 expectation

This post is totally awesome and you used awesome words like awesome an awesome amount of times (like an awesome number of 1000000000000000000) and I just find it so awesome that you did that.

metal gear more like metal queer

pwned!!!!!!!!

probably took you weeks to think that one up. lol

Hulk was pretty fucking awesome

Using a police car as a pair of boxing gloves was pretty damn manly

Well MindChamber it looks like my second favorite person, first being Sir Tomas Fulp enjoyed The hulk. I will be seeing it &lt;a href=&quot;http://&lt;a&gt;&quot;&gt;here&lt;/a&gt; once they start showing it that is.

good lord those still exists? always thought they were awesome.

a) Couldn't come to the BigAplleCon, not american so it's hard.

b) MGScollab seems to be good from what I've heard from Stamper, Jeff and you. I can't wait to see it.

c) I can't wait for the Rise of P-Bot, been waiting forever for that one. And now I have to wait forever again because of a game is gonna be released with it simultaneously.

b) Didn't know about a new Hulk movie. I have to see that one, and I will from what you've said.

e) since you deleted my &quot;W00T first post&quot; comment I just wanted to say W007 14 comment!

lols blogs are fun cause you can delete stuff,

Aw man I can't wait for the MGScollab to be released, all this waiting is killing me!! I'm pissing my pants in anxiety (literally), I don't even care if my piece is in it anymore (seen it so many times) I'm punishing myself every day for not putting more effort in it!! My life is an eternal torment now...

A) I didn't get to go to Big AppleCon but I'm going to the Comic Con, so I'm happy!

B) Your Metal Gear part sounds really stupid and really funny at the same time. It will be interesting to see two mega collabs released at once.

C) In my opinion, P-Bot has never looked more freakin' awesome than he does in that screenshot.

D) I'm not sure if I'll see the Hulk. I might though.

YAY

OH MAN

can't wait.

also, if the P-Bot game is half as awesome as Red Baron then Newgrounds is in for a real treat.

Do you edit your backgrounds in Photoshop or something? And if you do, is it to add more effect, or just to decrease file size?

And WOW P-Bot looks amazing in that screen shot.

Want me to do sprites for the last boss again?

its kinda already done, but ill keep ya posted man, thanks!!

Jose, you beast.

hans, you slut!

Awesome...really looking forward to Rise of Pbot!!

And I think I might just go see Hulk now.
