    it looks like linkara is wearing your Avatar costume, is he?

    • http://profiles.yahoo.com/u/PG5F4OSEWLGOVPEHK44ZWDRI4Y Sean

      Doesn’t look like it, since on his chainmail the AT4W logo is there, although I suppose he could have had it special made new shirt top, but eh Linkara is a big Knights of the Round Table and Arthur Lore guy so really I can see him having that.

        He is also very unfunny and annoying.

          See, people like you are the reason Spoony’s friends (yes the guys from TGWTG are Spoony’s friends) are reluctant to do crossovers because Spoony’s fanbase is known as a festering mess of rabid trolls. Are you even aware that without Linkara Doctor Insano wouldn’t even exist? No, of course you aren’t.

          • http://twitter.com/webbard webbard

            Without Linkara Doctor Insano wouldn’t exist? That sounds like the best of two worlds, no more stupid Insano character and no more of the awful, unfunny Linkara.

            Linkara has no ground to stand on when he mocks comics, his Lightbringer comic is cringe worthy and the hero is nothing more then a Linkara Maryjane.

            Linkara is win and you’re a sad jealous troll

            I would love to know how you came to that conclusion based off of my comment.

            because you have a Disqus profile that says where you comment.

            You sir fail. How does that comment make any sense? I mean really that’s the same as saying you visit CNN website you fail. I mean put some new orginzation up and then call them retard. Last time I checked if you followed the news. ANY NEWS! That wasn’t tabloid then your at least considered informed.

            If you don’t like Insano, why are you even here? I mean, you can’t call yourself a fan of Spoony.

          • http://twitter.com/webbard webbard

            Cause I like the reviews when they don’t go off course into half the review being some bullshit no one will ever care about. Why can’t someone like Spoony and hate Dr Insano? Dr Insano is the personification of everything that’s wrong with TGWTG and Spoony. It might have been funny as a one off joke, but instead it’s being beaten like a dead horse. And of course the “success” of Dr Insano has lead to more and more stupid costumes instead of just getting to the god dam review already.

            So, in other words, “no one is allowed to do something I hate even though other people enjoy it”? You should look up the meaning of “self-entitled”.

            You wouldn’t happen to be from that website Busy Street would you?

            You know the one where apparentlly crossovers and gags are bad, because they’re bad for no other discernible reason than they do not like them, rather than actually looking at why they think they are not good

            You know the site that insults people, saying thats free speech when actually its just people being douches and hiding behind the shield of constructive criticism
            The same site which says it lets people criticise them, but then goes to either ban them or call them a troll
            The same site which features that godawful reviewer Hellsing920 reguarly along with other terrible ones as somhow being the paragon of a good reviewer?
            The same site which is filled with illogical rants about how people need to do things their way or its no good

            I ask because your rant sounds very similar to the type of nonsense they spout
            If not, you might wanna consider not making out your opinion to fit for the majority and rather just your own opinion backed up by reasonable statements  rather than” I don’t like it,so its not good and therefore everyone else must think like that”

            I don’t like storylines in reviews either, except for RLMs Staw wars review one which fit with what he was doing, but I don’t make out that its the opinion of the majority

          • http://twitter.com/Linkara19 Lewis Lovhaug

            Sooo, let me get this straight, because I lack artistic talent and because you disapprove of my own webcomic, which has evolved and I even admit the early stories aren’t very well-drawn OR written, that makes me incapable of judging other comics’ quality?

            By that logic, no one is allowed to critique any media unless they are capable of producing a better quality version of that media.

          • http://twitter.com/webbard webbard

            “By that logic, no one is allowed to critique any media unless they
            are capable of producing a better quality version of that media.”

            #1 I said nothing about the “Artistic Talent” of Lightbringer. It’s cringe worthy for a number of reasons, the least of it being the artwork.

            #2 Your comics since Lightbringer have basically been nothing but existing heroes which you changed slightly. Lightbringer was nothing but a Maryjane Lewis Lovhaug.

            #3 No, people can critique without producing a better quality version. But your comics are so awful, from the dialogue that doesn’t sound like anything a human would say, to your let’s call it “interesting” philosophical view on life bleeding in to the comics, it’s bad. At least if you had made a mediocre, forgettable comic it wouldn’t be as bad. But this is like being a movie reviewer like Red Letter Media, and then doing your own film and leaving the lens cap on the whole time and deciding to release it all anyway.

            #4 Picking on dated comics because Hindsight is 20/20 isn’t really fair.

            #5 Really enjoyed your Irate Gamer April Fools joke. Irony being that you do most of the things you bitched about Irate Gamer doing. But hey, it’s Irate Gamer, we can beat that Dead Horse like it’s 2008.

            and to make this relevant:

            #6 How the hell did you almost go out of the shot when your in the middle of the pack?

          • http://twitter.com/Linkara19 Lewis Lovhaug

            #1  I did mention my crappy writing and art at the start of Lightbringer.  These days I’m not so preachy and I try not to be in it because I now recognize how bad an idea it was.

            #2  The only comic “since” Lightbringer has been Revolution of the Mask, which only has two issues out so far and you’ve barely even seen any of the characters aside from a few scenes.

            #3  *Shrugs*  If you didn’t like the comics I’ve produced and don’t think they’re any good, fine, whatever.  It doesn’t make my critiques of professionally-produced comics any less valid, though.  As bad as my own work can get, I’ve never produced Bimbos in Time, Amazons attack, Cry for Justice, Ultimatum, or anything that should have had editors stomp it out before it ever saw the light of day.

            #4  Is this about my reviews of Silver Age or Golden Age material?  Because even when I’ve done that, they actually end up faring better than modern comics – hell, I was praising the first appearances of Superman, Batman, and Spider-Man despite being incredibly dated.  You do know you can make fun of something even if you think it’s good, right?

            #5  And what in particular does he do that I do in my own reviews?  Please, list specifics.

            #6  I can’t remember if we did more than one take of this particular shot, though I’m pretty sure we did two.  This one I recall being a little confused about where we were supposed to walk, since at this point there’s a bit where we split off and I thought I was supposed to walk the other way.  When I realized that’s not what we were doing, it was half a second too late and I had stepped past where the others had gone, but I quickly swerved back to follow the others.

            Saying someone isn’t funny and finding them annoying(so basically having opinions) makes you a rabid troll? I didn’t lapse into a tirade of all the things I don’t like about him or something. The only reason you don’t see things anything but praise in the comments of the tgwtg website is because it’s moderate to the point of being some kind of internet Auschwitz.Even the escapist forums can only aspire to be this tightassed.

            What’s up with the weird capitalization? I mean, I’m German and we love to do capitalization, but even we would not capitalize “further” and “necessary”.
            Oh, and the argument? I argued against mindless hate. Dunno how I was losing in your eyes.

          • http://twitter.com/SteelDisqueboll Steel Disqueboll

            Holy shit, how is thinking someone is unfunny and annoying “mindless hate”. And Godwin’s law only applies when you are comparing you opponent in an argument to you-know-who and as far as I can see you are the only one here pointing fingers and calling names.

            Um, you do know what Auschwitz is, right? Right? I mean, you used it, so you should know what it means. Auschwitz is a place where my ancestors systematically KILLED people. You compared TGWTG to Nazis, is that not name-calling, dare I say, a Godwin?

          • http://twitter.com/Linkara19 Lewis Lovhaug

            Hey, don’t worry about me – people are free to dislike me on these comments as much as they want.  I’ve seen a hell of a lot worse insults get thrown at me other than me being “unfunny and annoying” and if I was really worried about the occasional person disliking my stuff, I probably would have quit long ago.

            Just because he says I’m unfunny and annoying doesn’t mean you need to leap to my defense, though it certainly is appreciated.

          Bringing up your hatred for a different internet reviewer on Spoony’s website is the reason so many of his fans are so loathed by the rest of the internet community. it gives us a bad name.

    It’s funny that the trailer uses the end theme music from 2002′s Spider-Man yet the scene shown spoofs The Lord of the Rings. Not saying it’s a bad thing, but it’s nice to see some of my favorites in the trailer especially Spoony back as Spoon-dalf!

    Enjoy the fireworks!

    When I saw Linkara in the Goddamn Avatar costume, I HAD to know what Spoony was.  The Ultimate Warrior?  Tidus?  Fucking Chuckles?  Then I saw Spoondalf, and I fucking died.  I had to pause the video, I was laughing so hard.

    Damn it. I’m avoiding this trailer like the plague (Last year I made the mistake of watching kickassia trailer and it spoiled many jokes and situations) And now I saw the title of the anniversary :( . Although I would like to know when I can see the full version, that information isn’t good enough to spoil the movie.

    • http://profiles.google.com/jordanselby Jordan Selby

      I HATED the trailer for last year as well, it was crazy spoiler. On impulse without thinking I watched this trailer, and it turns out nothing is spoiled. No jokes, or situations. Go ahead and watch in comfort.

    I’m sorry guys, it just doesn’t look good. I mean it’s cheesy acting and silly customs (LARPing anyone?). That’s an opinion and please don’t hate me for it. On the other hand, Spoony looks awesome.

    • Anonymous

      …It’s a comedy. The cheesy acting and the silly costumes (customs are something entirely different) are supposed to make you laugh. Oh, and Spoony is an ex-LARPer, he LARPed World of Darkness and Star Wars for example.

        Comedies are meant to be funny though. Kickassia was so awful I’m surprised someone didn’t review it by now, or can you guys not poke fun at Doug’s work?

          Kickasia has been reviewed a bunch of times, just google kickassia review. Most of them aren’t good. But neither is Kickassia. There’s also a short parody that is pretty good called PunchDickia

      many reviews on tgwtg base on cheesy acting in front of a camera and silly comstumes too. i think that’s what most people like about NC. if you don’t expect the holy grail of cinematic achievments this will be mindless fun. i dont know what some people expect. they’re not professional actors and they put together a feature film within a astonishing short period of time. it’s fan service. go to the cinema if you wanna see something else.

      • http://www.facebook.com/people/Jesse-Melat/1331583316 Jesse Melat

        I think it’s more akin to a manchild circle-jerk than “cheesy fun”….I mean, I’m sure they put loads of effort into making this, AND Kickassia, and that they had loads of fun making both–but it doesn’t mean that it’s fit to broadcast.

        A LOT of hard work went into ZARDOZ, too, ya know.   And you can’t defend Kickassia (or Zardoz) without getting into Harrison Bergeron territory, I’m sorry.   Or saying it’s “fanservice”….I guess I’m old fashioned, but in my day “fanservice” meant tits and ass.  I expect neither here.

        I have no desire to watch a particularly high-profile LARP–which is what Kickassia was, and what this….thing almost certainly will be.

        And…if “don’t like it, don’t watch it!” is the best defense to that that you can muster; I feel sorry for you. : )

        • Anonymous

          That is a good point and I’m not being sarcastic about having a lot of fun making it. Maybe it can be viewed as a Channel Awesome team building event.

        • Ceherz

          i think you’re not the one deciding what’s fit to broadcast. but seriously, if you’re saying you dont have any desire to watch this, then just DON’T. even if you feel sorry for me now. but everything else would be plain stupid. i really don’t see your problem.

    • Anonymous

      I mean look at all the people who agree with me. I think it’s resounding how this is just over the top and not funny. There’s a big difference between what Spoony does and being over the top. In fact, I’d say individually each reviewer is much more funny then in a group. Maybe it’s because each of their personalities don’t blend well but alone they are great.

      • Ceherz

        “I mean look at all the people who agree with me.” now that’s a super lame argument and you know it ;). … i agree that individual reviews are always better. but some acting performances from spoony are over the top and not all that funny too. nobody would laugh about dr. insano without knowing spoony i guess. my problem with all the people whining is: just take it for what it is… an anniversary special and that’s it.

      • http://profiles.yahoo.com/u/RWWCGXM2TOEBLU64VLDBBJ2K4Q Drake

        “look at all the people who agree with me” Yes because 8 people is a truly colossal number. The whole point of these videos isn’t to make an amazing production. It’s a time for the team to get together and have fun making a cheesy and hammy movie together. If you don’t want to watch it, that’s fine. Don’t. And just leave it at that.

        • Anonymous

          Settle Drake, settle… It’s just an opinion.
          Let’s get back to the point though. Is it over the top, yes. Does it look so over the top that it might be painful to watch, yes. Your argument is that they are trying to make it cheesy. However, I think it would work a hell of a lot better if they were parodying something (unlike the last movie) instead of just dressing up in outrageous customs and going to war.
          And that is my opinion mind you Drake.

          Finally, of course I’ll watch but will I like it, eh probably not (like the last movie).

          Please note I’m being rather ambiguous in my criticisms because I haven’t seen it yet.

      • http://profiles.yahoo.com/u/RWWCGXM2TOEBLU64VLDBBJ2K4Q Drake

        Apparently my first reply didn’t quite register, but anyway…
        “Look at all the people who agree with me. I think it’s resounding…” Yes, because 8 people is such a colossal number. The point of this production is not to make a truly awe-inspiring film with great effects, cinematography or amazing acting. It’s a time when the whole team can get together and have fun creating a cheesy and hammy movie together, something they don’t get to do all that often because of conflicting schedules and long distances between them. If you don’t want to watch it, that’s fine. Don’t. And leave it at that.

    And I don’t mean just an upskirt Nostalgia Critic shot, I mean I want to see this huge poorly-strung together crossover of ridiculous costumes. Brings back memories of the funny parts of LARPing, the ones where people well over their thirties ran around screaming in silly costumes and didn’t even try to pretend they were being serious.

    NC is Link, Benzaie is Conan, Chick is Arwen, Obscurus is Snow White, 8-bit is Robin Hood, Phelous is ??, the Sage is Cowardly Lion, Tom is basic LARP (but they are probably going to say Aragorn), Linkara is a generic knight, Angry Joe is a pirate (why?), Snob is Indy, Paw is (guessing) Ming the Merciless, Marzgurl is an Amazon, Film Brain and Luke are both wizards though i don’t see the lightning so i’m guessing not Harry himself, Spoony as Gandalf, Todd as Zorro (nice choice to keep that shadowy persona going), Jew is Jareth (i thank him for skipping the skin tight shinny pants).

      I figured Tom was some sort of Legolas sort of character. Angry Joe was Inigo Montoya; to answer the question below the one that wore the mask was the Dread Pirate Roberts who I believe is who Todd was actually being. Mostly because there’s no hat. And I think Linkara is supposed to be the Avatar from the Ultima games, it even looks kind of like Spoony’s costume. (Hell, it might BE Spoony’s costume.)

    That was an excellent trailer. One of the best I ever seen for ANYTHING. What an excellent way to introduce the cast of characters we know and love. I’m surprised at how well the ending font worked, considering that it was just Times New Roman and not some kind of Ultima-style font.

    This trailer has done more than inform me that ‘Suburban Knights’ exists. It makes me want to see it. Really, this is on par with the trailer for ‘Citizen Kane’, which was practically like a short movie.

    • http://twitter.com/webbard webbard

      Yes, it’s so good they didn’t even have to do a 2nd take so NChick and Lupa could fix their hair problems, or so Linkara could follow the same path as everyone else. I mean how does he not follow in a straight line? He would have failed Kindergarten where I’m from.

        Aside from the windy day, I don’t think the group was trying to move in a single file line. What kind of ragtag band of adventurers travel in a military line shouting ‘HUP, two, three, four’. I don’t really remember anything like that in The Lord of the Rings.

        Umm… He has the right to be upset about Kicckassia. It was an awful meandering mess. Just because he has negative things to say about it doesn’t mean you can just tell him to shut up.

        • robinhood9961

           I never said he had to like kickassia I was just saying that he had already decided not to like suburban knights because of that, and was then not expressing his opinion as to why. He has a right to like or dislike anything he wants.

          I never said he couldn’t dislike Kickassia, but he just judged Suburban Knights by it, and never presented as to why he disliked Kickassia as well.

      I hated Kickassia just as much as everyone. And I will bitch and moan to anyone about story arcs that happen IN THE MIDDLE OF A FUCKING REVIEW!

      But this has a chance of working. Hopefully the TGWTG reviewers have learned from the mistakes of Kickassia, and will make something as awesome as the trailer implies. Their ability to quickly introduce us to a group of familiar faces in the roles they will play shows an understanding of their audience, and an ability to communicate quickly and organically to said audience.

      They know who we are, and seem to have the improved technical ability to give us what we want. All they have to do is be careful in their efforts, and have a clear goal in sight.

      Actually, I didn’t really like Kickassia. It had a meandering, confused plot that didn’t have a clear beginning goal in mind. Preparing an actual script in advance would have helped, instead of telling the story ‘Lost’ style, trying to shoehorn in conflict wherever it can.

      Although Santa Christ was awesome, but he always is.

      • http://twitter.com/Linkara19 Lewis Lovhaug

        If you didn’t like Kickassia, that’s perfectly okay, but I can assure you the story had a script, we all read it ahead of time, and personally I thought it was hilarious.

        Then again, though, I’m kind of biased in that regard.

      • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_Q4JJMULUGCW6WL3ECUNEYHDBJQ Vash The Stampede

        the plot seemed pretty simple to me: NC wanted to take over a tiny piece of land.  There were some twists and lots of silliness but the dialogue worked and everyone did a good job IMO.  The production isn’t going to be at Hollywood levels, but everything else worked.  It was one of the most enjoyable pieces of entertainment last year even when you throw in the big wig productions.  It also introduced me to Brad Jones, who is now one of my favorite guys.

        That’s just my opinion and you have yours.  I don’t like Keven James or Tyler Perry movies but apparently some people do and thats fine.

Can’t you guys just relax and enjoy these for what they are: a silly, stupid, ridiculous crossover of a bunch of damn internet reviewers. I mean, what are you people expecting?
