Almost four months later, I spot a little gem in the portal dubbed "The Street Fighter Collab". My eye leaped with excitement, like seeing Santa Clause...Four months later. While I was interested how good (or bad? D:) it was going to be, my main curiosity was if I made the cut or not. Now I have never attempted to be a part of a collab, let a lone an official Newgrounds one, but when I saw some of my animations in the awesomely crafted introduction, my insides lit up. I could probably equate this to a magical hand grabbing a girls ovaries? I hear that's what it's like to have ovaries.
But yeah it felt awesome to be a part of that. They weren't kidding when they said "around 30" entries O_o. Overall, the quality I think was much better than the MGS collab, in terms of humor. Same with the presentation. Art-wise, it is hard to tell, because of the different amount and styles of artists. If I may, I would like to go over what I thought of each one, because I have the time to do this kind of stuff now!
I loved the style of the loading screen, props to Arkhe for that.
Short 1 TeamTamango-Wacky, the guys voice kind of bugged me when he laughed, but I liked the way Chun-Li and Zangief were drawn and animated.
Short 2 PigPen-I smile every time Ryu says "hadouken" and "buttmuch". I actually thought it was funny, but for some reason the ending could have been better.
Short 3 keirupted-amusing set up, screaming at the end made me chuckle.
Short 4 egoraptor-I loved this. The drawing/animation style was very pleasing to look at, and taking Ryu's kick and turning it in to that phrase was brilliant. Wish half the reviews would stop repeating it; it loses it's flavor :/
Short 5 gel-Awesome art, I have no idea what Ryu says at the end, so I may be missing something big
Short 6 BoMtoons-Interestig plot that had a lot of potential, but I just did not fidn the climax that funny. Depressing ambience worked though.
Short 7 Osuka-Again, a plot with potential. I really liked Osuka's MGS collab submissions, so I was surprised that this one did not really work for me.
short 8 BobertRob-I just did not find this funny. Silly? Yeah. No cheap humor, but not that funny to me.
Short 9 El Cid- Very pretty and very well animated. I found te beginning and end funny, more so the beginning. The hadoken in the face was silly, but I did not laugh, but I still really liked this one.
Short 10-MiddleFingerRings-Better than his MGS one, I like his art style, but I did not get the joke.
Short 11 TheMexixanMuffinMan-I found this hilarious. Relatively less animation than some, but the dialog was just hilarious. When Chun Li gets the guy though, I was confused to whether if her co workers were trying to hold her back off screen?
Short 12 Fiergon-Haha I love this one. I wish he did more characters, but I guess better not to overdo it? Seeing each character's favorite music was entertaining. I have a feeling the author likes Ryu's music the best for some reason though, but I loved Dan's music.
Short 13-THE SHIT. But really, I wish I upped the volume for the announcer and drew some Zangief stills better. Haha I couldn't believe they added med-oops!
Short 14 thecultguy- I was disappointing by this one. I thought deadpan, dry humor would have worked so well for his drawing style, but as a dick joke, it was unfitting. I guess points for the unexpected ending.
Short 15 phantom-I feel bad for laughing, but Ryu's fantasy (video?) with Chun-Li was funny to me. I didn't really find Ryu jacking off funny though. Humorous expressions.
Short 16 BiffTheTimid- While the drawings are awesome, I was afraid the joke was going to fall flat. I was wrong. Ryu's expression and the "mama,mama" line (from Saving Private Ryan I believe?) made this one of my favorites.
Short 17 Tygerman-The car gag could have been a lot funnier, but the Blanka part was clever.
Short 18 Egoraptor-Again, love the way it's drawn, but did not find it funny. Was it parodying "Unforgivable"? Because I didn't feel that funny either. EDIT: I did not realize he was saying "cross counter" and I also did not get the reference because I didn't really play Third Strike. Probably would have found it funnier if I did/
Short 19 RobertBob- Better than the first. Could have been better, but I enjoyed the "YES"
Short 20 killammer- Took me two views to get what Ryu was doing, but I had a neutral feeling on it.
Short 21 Nalem-Enjoyed Egoraptor's voice acting, witty joke, and drawings.
Short 22 TomFulp-This was almost creepy by the way it was drawn, but I absolutely love Tom's voice acting. "Whaat" and "Hadoken" and his general mannerisms were hilarious. The animation of the arms just adds to the humor. I don't think much others could have made this funny with the same script.
Short 23 Master-Samus-I did not laugh during this, but it was very fun to watch. Clean humor working?! MY GOD.
Short 24 The Swain- Really liked the art, all the jokes I found funny. Nude Ken felt out of place, but Sakura's line was a really nice touch. I am still awed by The Swain's voice acting abilities.
Short 25 Valerofond-I saw this coming from a mile away, and why I can be fan of random violence, I wish this was executed in a funnier way. Not bad though, because it was animated well.
Short 26 Sprite 37-First half I liked (priceless guile expression), second half felt flat to me and I did not notice all the cameos at the end.
Short 27 JohnnyUtah-I actually felt his MGS was funnier, but this was probably better overall. It was entertaining to watch, and while humorous, I did not really laugh out loud. I sill like this one though, but I don't really like the third strike characters. I can't believe people think this one relies on cock jokes though. Damn people generalize too much.
Short 28 AlmightyHans- Nice drawing style, didn't make me laugh. Amusing use of sound effects though.
Short 29 ZombiePimp-One I particularly like. Nice voice acting and nicely animated and drawn. I did not like the sudden drawing style change for the close up of the characters, but the joke was funny. Yay for Zangief-Sakura perversions!
Short 30 Sketchodie-It was well made, regards to the drawings and voice acting (Akuma seemed a little weak to me), but I just did not find this funny. It resembled that "anime humor an silliness" you see, which I don't particularly like. I guess this one was just hindered by my taste. Though I wish he did more with Akuma walking away with Sean to make a stronger punchline.
Short 31 Mrnihil-clever joke, but he did not really do much with it
Short 32 Stamper-Hahaha, I found this actually funny. I wasn't really grossed out. The ridiculous scene between Viper and Guile was so over the top that it worked (Haha I am not surprised Stamper would give viper an urban black-sounding voice when in the game she's your typical young-business-woman-anime voice). Bison's vomit was also well timed and I liked how he enjoyed what he saw instead of being grossed out.
Catoblepas-Actually expecting something more bizarre! But glad he contributed.
Looking forward to the next one!
Ah, for those looking for Fiergon's music when Akuma's iPod is playing, you can listen to it here:
