Has anyone else noticed that shadow's plan is literally super smash brothers? Down to getting a special arena for everyone?

What makes you think this hasn't been Super Smash Bros. all along? This is just what all the non-Nintendo characters were doing at the same time.

Sony is wasting their loving time with that Smash Bros. clone they're making. Nobody is going to buy it. If they just went and asked for the looney tunes rights and etc and made Tails Gets Trolled: Melee it would sell like hotcakes.
Emler's final smash is he puts on a troll mask and blasts 'wazer beems' out of his shotgun, then he becomes Troll Mask Elmer (think Zero-suit Samus)

Oh God, my mind is flooding with ideas for attacks for characters. I could see the original trolls (the ones who trolled Tails) appearing as Pokemon Trainer (they have a depleting Troll attack meter and they tag team to replenish) and unlocking so many characters and oh my Jesus.

Rob's taunts all involve him saying "WHAT?" and or "I DON'T HAVE ANY loving EARS" and he is banned from tourny play.

Wasn't there someone in the LP subforum who LP'd Oblivion and whose normal voice was uncannily similar to Kermit?

Twern't me!

Anyway, I did 4 (possibly 5, maybe a dozen) takes of Kermit's part in TGT for the stream. Consensus seems to be the most positive for serious "I've seen some poo poo" Kermit over a "straight" read of the run on sentence from the walls of text. I'll do a few takes of each and JazzFlight said he could cherry pick the best parts.

My favorite lines from this:

  • "Have you ever been bitchslapped for lack of listening?"

  • "You see anger is a double edge sword it takes both the people down"

  • "the best challenge for a troll to troll is another troll"

  • (and the last three entire loving panels of kermit's lines)


Also I was loving serious: Lazerbot will be considered the next Shakespeare and dA will be his Globe Theater (and probably will also burn down soon enough)


VVV edit: nope, I destroyed my voice by the third take, but I will do another stream soon and record it and make sure its public. (and thanks again for the turn out!)

Oh gently caress's sake, did I miss Literally Kermit reading TGT? :negative:

:chillpill: im going
to be doing it
again soon this time
with pizzaz


Seriously, this first time was just to get an idea what sounded better, a fast literal read or a slow, meta one.

Fast is verbatim (treating the commas a natural pauses and taking short inhales so I don't pass out) and slow is "meta" ie Kermit speaking naturally, treating the commas as periods and pausing where dramatically appropriate (like hesitating before remembering "mis piggy") while still keeping a bulk of the typos (I'm still practicing saying 'im' same as it is in 'him' and 'dont' as it rhymes with 'aunt' as suggested).

The former is true to the presentation, the latter is more in lines of the meta-joke that Kermit is teaching Tails about patience.

I interpret Kermit in TGT as someone who has seen some poo poo, trying to warn this new soldier what's really important out there on the battlefield. He's ultimately wistful yet 'dumbass will learn' at the end when Tails ignores his training in favor for Spyro's.

And yes, I probably am over-thinking this. :negative:

Death seems to be somewhat permanent in the TGTverse. Only necromancers can bring back the dead so far.

Maybe. Maybe I'm reading too much into the Toads' general reaction:

That's it. Is anyone up for writing a recap? Where everyone is, which camp they're in, and so forth? This thing is getting a little complicated.

On the other hand, re-reading TGT in its entirety seems like a great lazy Saturday activity. Or a good way to spiral into madness.

I'm crazy enough to attempt it. Maybe later tonight.

Mario seems to care a great deal about keeping the yet-unseen (but mentioned) Peach out of this conflict, leading me to believe he is in this to do what's best for the Mushroom Kingdom. He's their champion, after all.

EDIT: Also, it's kind of funny to imagine the Defenders in battle. Imagining Batman, Hello Kitty, Woodstock and Doug Funnie charging into a troll camp to save Cheeto Man and violently murdering all who stand in their path is a beautiful image.

I picture it being exactly like the Spartans against the Persians in '300', only the Spartans win and they all get high immediately afterwards but not Kermit because Kermit knows it ain't easy bein' green.

I haven't forgotten about recording Kermit's lines, I've just had a busy week. I'm pleased that Kermit has had additional dialogue since then, and that the run-on lesson about patience was entirely intentional.

That shows me Lazerbot goes beyond simple self-awareness, and has a better natural grasp of story-telling and sequential art than Buckley, Mookie, or Dobson -- about 30 years of collective experience!

On the contrary, I think the situation is hilarious and part of what makes the whole TGT experience so grand. I've never seen an ED troll attempt just fail so spectacularly and it's clear Ponyguy is really desperately clinging to his shtick. He hasn't even gotten a rise out of anyone, he's just getting booed to hell and back and won't leave the stage. It's wondrous to behold.

Lazerbot is a loving champ. He's a bizarre, modern-day 90's Cool Kid.

He's the Anti-Chris-chan. Save for squashing other people's IPs together in strange ways, crude drawings and unique manner of speaking (and trolls, of course) lazyB is the polar opposite of CWC. If they were cars, CWC would be the top-heavy SUV flipping itself over in a perpetual trainwreck, and Lazy "Thunderbolt Greaseslapper" B would be the jalopy lovinging pieced together from stolen parts, built for picking up chicks, drag racing, and most especially hot-boxing. Hear me out.

LB is a natural storyteller, having a good sense of pacing (usually), foreshadowing, and character development, all things CWC didn't grasp or didn't care about.

LB also has his comic peppered with healthy doses of original content, or failing that, bends preexisting characters to the point they may as well be. Chris mimicked what he thought other people considered cool, but ultimately his characters were shallow, self-inserts at best and vapid shells at worst.

CWC loved pandering, and trolls loved him for it. Lazerbot does shoutouts and listens to suggestions, but canny enough to pick up on obvious trolls. It's telling how they got 'famous': Chris tried promoting himself on 4chan, overreacted and it snowballed from there. As far as I know, LB enjoys fans but doesn't really care. He has a story in mind and doesn't give two shits if you like it or not.

CWC 'fans' were strictly ironic or malicious - he alienated any real fans years ago by being rude or by not updating for months. LB pumps out several pages a week, he has as many genuine fans as ironic ones, and is basically rad as gently caress- the fact ED itself seemed annoyed by the dA account hacking as any speaks volumes.

Which comes the point: CWC has a wiki. It's more about him as it is about Sonichu, very creepily so. That's because no one actually gave a gently caress about Sonichu as a story- it was just a portal into what ever fell darkness lurks in a thirty-something autistic man's soul. Speaking for myself, I could give a poo poo about LB's private life- I'm strictly here for the yarns what he spins. And I would love a dedicated resource that tracks its characters and developments. We don't have one, as far as I know.

Is a TGT wiki that bad an idea? The OP is chock full of resources but we're getting to a point where there's enough content to warrant one. The major deal breaker is thinking if trolls tried to use it as a resource, but gently caress, man, if the last couple days are any indication, it's trolling on a CWC level is a group effort, and the only ones trolling LazyB are sad lonely ones that really suck at it.

Just food for thought, since setting up a website is on the 'to-do' list.

I've been out of service for the past month and a half, and I just caught up with one go. The fight scene was pretty good when taken all at once. The chapter ending and picking back up mid fight was incredible. Then being hit with these last three updates? I fell in love all over again. And Rob's back. :unsmith:

The "MEANWHILE-*trollfaceson*-MEANWHILE BACK" page was the greatest thing I've seen in a comic book in a long while. Got me thinking about why I like TGT so much, so here are my thoughts on the subject, which if you want to skip, can basically be summed up as :hawaaaafap:

At this point, I no longer know what to expect out of TGT, nor do I care. It's transcended being a work of fiction and should now be officially reclassified as a 'ride'.

All I can say about Lazy-B is the man is a natural storyteller. In fact, he's a natural tall-tale-teller, and if he had been born a century ago he'd probably be doing a story involving a zombie Paul Bunyan or a Dragonborn Little Nemo tearing poo poo up in the Thousand-Acre Wood or something like thatand probably be just as mesmerizing as TGT. He'd probably do it in woodcut, too.

Rob became my favorite character immediately after his introduction into TGT. After the brilliant reveal that he's dragonborn, Rob became impossible for me to classify -- because I don't know a word that means 'super-favorite'. We learned that Rob is incredibly dangerous, very powerful, but also a genuine good guy. We've only seen a fraction of what we know he's capable of, but we know above all else, he keeps his promises. Now he's rushing into an enemy base with a loving 'R' on his chest. I loving love Rob. I am emotionally invested in Rob. Good luck Rob. :unsmith:

Hey Lazerbot, since you can read the thread, here is my Original character idea:

There is a Quarterback in the UFL, basically a small alternate football league to the NFL. His name is Jared Lorenzen. He looks like this.

I want this man in your comic. Or at least a character based off Lorenzen. here is a quick 5 minute doodle:

You can kill him in one scene or take him to the finale, I don't care. I just want to see battleship lorenzen in Tails gets Trolled.
