Re: ONiTribute

Yeah, a fight video with mostly good 'shots'. I very like the cutscreen at beginning - reminds me to MGS2-Flashbacks. Your backbreakers are caramel on my tongue. Not to forget muro's well-timed neckbreackers and the final slowmo crescent moon kick. But - and here comes a little critic - why speaking of story when focusing on gameplay how introduced by topic's name? hmm wink

Re: ONiTribute

Thanx

No, they weren't staged (just good 'shots').
They are taken from my speedkill videos. No scripts, no hacks, no editting.

I call it a story because it is.
I wasn't going to spoon feed the audience with still comics and half-baked in-game cutscenes.


The atmosphere, the music, and the action all tells a story.

Re: ONiTribute

I wonder who is meant by "comic and half-baked" stuff.. You playing the ball very hard, man. Consider that I'm here because of oni and not to anger people.
I said shots because it's a video of collected parts nevertheless. We should just forget this little quarrel and start over. Okay? smile

Re: ONiTribute

I apologize. I had no intention of sounding hostile and I wasn't attacking you.
I forgot you are from Germany so I have to be especially careful how I word things.

It only sound hostile in writing. What I meant was that other people uses in game cutscenes
to tell a story but we all scene it a million times, don't you agree. So I want
to leave a little to the imagination. That's what I meant by half-baked meaning the
in game cutscenes don't tell the whole story.

You have to make your own story. You actually gave me some idea.

Since you like stories, you inspired me to create some story.

Watch ONISketches1 and 2, I haven't posted part 3 yet because it's in the making

Re: ONiTribute

"I forgot you are from Germany so I have to be especially careful how I word things."
Ahm, potential double meaning/interpreation possibility again^^ But it's very true that I've understanding problems with the English language.
You know .. or maybe you don't know .. a buddy and I did an oni comic and I worked on a cutscene script, now it's half-baked lying around.
So I was thinking you was pointing onto something...

"You have to make your own story." Oh yes I'm on it ^^ (Today is the day of double meaning..)
---
I watched the available parts. You develop doubtless in direction comedy. In my opinion that's on of most difficult genre, or maybe it's because I'm German.^^

So.. Here's a suggestion: Something like: (the first hard fighting striker, then beat up by a ppk-combo) "He got too serious, he must be a German, muhahaha."

Re: ONiTribute

When I say "you must make your own story"

In everyday language, "you" in a general sense means all people.

"people make their own story" that's what I mean. I understand you are from
Germany and your English is phenomenal for it being a second or third language
I guess you might even know a little french.


I wasn't trying to make it funny.
If it's funny, then so be it.
After all, everybody likes a good story.

Re: ONiTribute

Could be that you overlooked my ‘bracket-sentence’: “Today is the day of double meaning.”
Of cause, the first meaning is: “When the story isn’t told totally then the reader/watcher has to use his or her imagination to fill the rest.”

And about my French understanding skill:
I installed the game in this language too, I don’t understand anything.
(But I was searching for a specific word and I used a translator so it was easier...)
Hey, do you live in France? Take a look onto the member map.
If you want you can tell "Edt" your location, I'm sure he will add you.

“I wasn't trying to make it funny.” I wonder about the lol’s in the ...
Ahm.. By the way, in German we use the word “sketch” for a performed joke.
It seems that we are perfect in misunderstanding each other.
Whatever. I wish you good luck for your video project. I will watch it, I promise.

Re: ONiTribute

It would have been better when I have asked you directly what you want to create, what kind of story. On what do you aim?
If it is no comedy what is it then?
To be honest: Right now it seems that you're bored to death. I get the feeling you complain about a 7-year-old game.
Sorry. Show me that I'm wrong.

Re: ONiTribute

Part 3 is where the story picks up.  If I have to tell you the story, then I am not doing a very good job.

If you still don't get it after seeing part 3, then just throw out some ideas on what you think my story is about.

Re: ONiTribute

I'd say it turns out rather similar to my "ONLY" project, but perhaps not as trivially cynical.
Yours might get interesting if it feeds on the mean side of Bungie (sick computer jokes etc).
It's hard to tell right now. It has potential, but it can go either way. Keeping an eye on it...

Re: ONiTribute

"what kind of story" don't mean "tell me the story", right?
But I'm glad geyser gave me the key word: cynical.
So, I will wait until all parts are made and then thinking over it again.
