ZippyGamer's first review, There Will Be Brawl!

Post  Joseppi on Sat Jan 16, 2010 6:03 pm

My friend and I just launched a new site and I thought I'd make one of the first articles a review about the awesomeness that is TWBB. It's not only the site's first review, but the site's first 10/10 review.

My main goal of this review was to talk about the greatness of TWBB without spoiling it for anyone who hasn't yet watched it.

Anyway, I had to share it with all of you!

Let me know what you think. Criticism is welcome..and expected. lol

This is the best rating scale ever.

Seriously though, top notch review. I've already seen the whole thing and I still read it.

Thanks Surge, that's means a lot coming from you. I've told everyone I know about TWBB, so I figured the next best thing is an online review. And yeah, we were unsure how well the Zippy Scale would go over with people. lol

Agreed. It's an in-depth and quality review. Sure to bring more on the TWBB band wagon.

Congrats on the site and good luck with it in the future. Just curious, is this just a hobby, or a start for a future in journalism?

For now it's a hobby. Something to add to my portfolio. I'm going to go back to school this year for web design. I did study to be an English teacher back in 2007, but shit happened and I had to take time off school to get a full time job.

It's an honor they you guys liked the article. I knew I would get some honest criticism from you all. I sure didn't expect such positive feedback though. Thanks!

Awesome review. The last paragraph was great, it's just a shame not everyone can see it like that. Like some of my online friends I tried to show it, one of them whined about how he doesn't like film noir, and the other was just like "Blah blah blah it doesn't fit in with SSB, etc" :/

But anyway, great review, very in-depth and nice scaling system. =D

Thanks Johnny! Yeah, there's people out there that don't like a movie that changes so much about their favorite stories. I didn't like that about the Zelda fan film, "The Hero of Time." But TWBB does it just great.

Yeah, there's not MUCH of a story to SSB in the first place anyway. =P

I guess some people just don't like the fact it's a dark plot mixed with parody elements. Maybe they think it's awkward or something.

That's great to hear JGH! I just finished reading your introduction.

Our goal with the site is to bring gamers of all types together. Video games, board games, sports, you name it. But video games will be our primary focus. It's also kind of our way of fighting back against the negative video gaming stereotype that all gamers are out of shape, lazy and all of that. Hence the name, "Zippy."

And I really glad you liked our articles. We could always use some more writers.

Great review, but I have to disagree with the rating, and I know saying this on the official site is probably a bad idea, but like one poster in the review said, the series wasn't perfect, now don't get me wrong, I love this series alot and it will always be my favorite. But it had some flaws, and thus it doesn't (Yes I feel like a douche bag when I say this.) deserve a 10.
For instance the ending scene with kirby was suppose to show him giving the triforce, Ness's powers, R.O.B., and Sakurai's dead body, but due to finance-problems, it makes it look like he's about to jump him to some viewers(Like my friends who still won't believe me about the ending since they haven't seen the "Ask me anything TTBB-related thread."). And other flaws/glitches as well.
The series is stillan easy 9, if not 9.5, but giving it a perfect 10 makes you look like Gamestop(Ooh I went there Gamestop, what now?).
Still, very good review, very nice read Smile!


P.S. Perhaps you should include a spoilers section for those who have already watched it and want a second opinion on the series.

I do get what you mean by it has it's flaws. But I mainly based my review on basis that it's fan-made. And for me, it is very well done compared to other fan made movies I've seen. For me, it was worth a 10 rating. I enjoyed every minute of it. And I would gladly watch it over many Hollywood movies or TV shows.

Also, as for the ending, Are you serious? I never heard anything about that. If so, I hope they'll add more when the DVD come out.

My first quote, go me Smile!
But no really, the ending I am serious about, if you click on the thread "Ask me anything TTWB-related" it will show the creator of the show answering questions, and it also gives the hint "Returning a few relics to an old friend." So yeah, I guess we learn something new each day.
