3)Anyway, I had to make the video because I don't think anyone has made an "abridged series" for the Sam and Max franchise. 4)I may have stolen jokes from LittleKuriboh, but I'll try to cut down on doing that in the future. 5) As for sound quality, I will use Audacity instead of Sound Recorder (which is what I used here).
Please don't ban me again. I really want to be here.
1) I don't think anyone appreciates being banned.
2) Everyone knows you have feelings. But sometimes one must be humble, (young grasshopper) in these circumstances. It's cool to stand up for what you think and believe. You were banned for a reason, though, and as snarky and hurtful as comments to your cause may have sounded, you shouldn't take these to heart. This is the internet, and whilst some etiquette would be nice, we have loose tongues and flamers here. Don't expect everyone to be nice. Sad but true.
3) They certainly haven't, and good on you for being the first.
I just think they would be incredibly difficult to abridge, seeing as they're incredibly slapstick material already. Yu-Gi-Oh Abridged
worked because the show was trying to be serious (kinda). There's plenty to nitpick about Sam and Max, but the developers tend to do that already from time to time.
Sam : You know, this factory layout looks eerily familiar.
4) What makes a series is originality,
not trying to ride onto the scene on someone else's work. (This isn't a jab at you, this is a general fact. Even if the material you're using is good,
if a source is constantly used and if it's well-known material, people will perceive this as bad and lazy scriptwriting.) If you want to make a good series, you need to think hard about being original - something which is sadly difficult to do.
(Pop culture references are fine, as long as they're not all you're riding on. Then again, the Simpsons have been using that formula for over 20 years... Maybe I should rethink that statement.)
5) It's not the quality of sound recording you're lacking on, mate. But that's always good to prioritise.
Apologies for sounding high-and-mighty.
