I wrote this as a review to Strawberry Clock RPG 5 and liked it so much I figured I'd share it with the world =)
You know, it took me nearly ten years but I've finally gotten over my "rage" at the audacity that is the clock crew and their inane ability to produce sheer volumes of wasted bytes.
Today I realized... You know what? It really doesn't matter if there are "crews" out there, filling the portal with crap. That is the purpose that the portal serves - to weed out the garbage and the chaff, and leave what is good to get placed in positions of grandeur.
The crews will always be around, peddling their nonsensical putrescence, but, occasionally something of value rises to the top of the slurry.
This is one of those rising-to-the-top-of-the-slurry-things .
I don't know why, but I find this flash unbelievably entertaining. Perhaps it is the commentary on the typical RPG - the overblown takes-20-minutes-to-execute "special moves," the absurdity of shooting 30 rounds or a holy-crap-asplode rocket launcher at an enemy and having them fall to the earth in a heap, only to rise again, with an arbitrary number floating over their head, ready to retaliate with something equally absurd, such as a stampede of smaller versions of themselves or some fantastical dinosaur thing, or perhaps it is just the fact that no matter what i do i simply [emphasis, please] cannot die [/emphasis, please], but this, while simple and 'crappy' by 'elitist crew haters' standards, thoroughly entertained me.
Or, it could simply be the fact that it's midnight, and I should really go to sleep.
But I digress, I did not come here to wax philosophical on the merits and short-comings of the clock crew. I came here to provide 'props' and 'hollas' to the individual that finally made me realize the futility of becoming angry at the actions of a few anonymous individuals on a website that takes in submissions from every corner of the tripple-dub.
The true value of this monster of technology is that there is the freedom for people to create the likes of /b/ and newgrounds portal spam.
'Keep it realz, yo, home slice' and 'don't let the haterz bring ya down.'
Oh, and kitteh krew still does and always will suck. They're just worthless =)
