Emoticomic Remix: Introduction by DanVzare Emoticomic Remix: Introduction by DanVzare
So here it is, the first page for the final season of Emoticomic. And this season I'm using the same list as the first season, hence "remix" being in the title.
Fun fact, I've had this planned since before I even finished the first season of Emoticomic. Characters included. That's right, I've had these characters in a folder for years. I originally planned for this to be the second season, as can be seen from Sunshine appearing in that first season of Emoticomic. But then time passed, I got sick of making Emoticomic, more time passed, I got back into making Emoticomic, more time passed, I didn't like how I had created Boxer, so I re-recreated him (he started as a doodle) and I ended up creating the much better looking and faithful to the original doodle Box. And then I talked with :icontoddntheshiningsword: who inspired me to make my next Emoticomic season all interconnected rather than having each page be a separate entity, and so season 2 came together completely differently, with this idea being shelved.

Which I think was for the best. Because this way I've got even more experience under my belt for redoing the original list, so I'll be able to properly see how much (if at all) I've improved.
Judging from this first page though, I'd say I've improved a lot. :nod:
And I enjoyed making this page. So it's nice to be enjoying myself making these again. :D

That's true, besides, the first Emoticomic was released eight years ago. So it would have had a good run. :nod:
vindurza Featured By Owner Mar 14, 2018  Hobbyist General Artist
wow that is quite a run
DanVzare Featured By Owner Mar 15, 2018
I've certainly kept up with this hobby for a long time.
vindurza Featured By Owner Mar 15, 2018  Hobbyist General Artist
its good to have a hobby lol
DanVzare Featured By Owner Mar 16, 2018
That it is. It stops you from going insane.
Dreamer-In-Shadows Featured By Owner Mar 11, 2018  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Well then, I'll be eagerly expect more of these as I try to find more goofs for the videogame-related comics ... and Sunshine, are you only breaking the 4th Wall because you˙re pretty much looking like the sun itself? :,D
DanVzare Featured By Owner Mar 14, 2018
She probably takes the sun's place whenever he goes on vacation. :giggle:
Dreamer-In-Shadows Featured By Owner Mar 14, 2018  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I would say the same bloody thing right there. :laughing:

This is like the reverse of that thing you don't want to say when you're not sure someone is pregnant or something. :XD:

Blueby came from elsewhere- which I feel is secretly referential... and thus this is, like, better, already. What a great introduction.
DanVzare Featured By Owner Mar 14, 2018
I'm actually very VERY proud of that second panel. It's just so... perfect!
Here's hoping I can keep up the quality.
ToddNTheShiningSword Featured By Owner Mar 14, 2018  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Don't consider it to be TOO perfect. Perfection can't be maintained, OR exceeded. :fingerscrossed:
DanVzare Featured By Owner Mar 15, 2018
Those are some very wise words indeed. :nod:
ToddNTheShiningSword Featured By Owner Mar 15, 2018  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Especially for artists, since we're all supposed to look at our work and then cry about how good it ISN'T, anyway.
DanVzare Featured By Owner Mar 16, 2018
Ha ha. :lmao:
So true.

I JUST get finished finding out Smash is coming for the Switch, and then IMMEDIATELY after seeing that reveal, I come here and see this!

Were you holding this back to make sure it would come out after Nintendo direct?! :shocked: 

Well, now that I've experienced this... remember how I said finding out this was greenlit to go was like finding out there'd be a new season of your favorite anime? Well, now I can say that finding out about this was like finding out Nintendo announced a new Smash! Exactly like it! To the point where THIS feels like an extension of the video I was just watching, as if that video transitioned directly into this, like it was a Super Bowl ad. It segwayed from Splatoon 2 to Smash in a way that'd have you fooled, and then THAT segwayed into THIS!!! It's official. Nintendo will always be able to surprise me. I didn't know you and them were in cahoots. :gadget::mib:
This and Smash kinda are similar, since both of them were things I knew were coming, BUT STILL getting the announcement was... amazing.

DanVzare Featured By Owner Mar 14, 2018
Oh I wish I was holding this back for that. But nope, this came out right now, because I had planned to release it round about now, ages ago.
The fact that I released it just as you found out about Smash was a total coincidence.

Although the fact that you think my Emoticomics are anywhere near comparable to Smash is incredibly heartwarming. :D
ToddNTheShiningSword Featured By Owner Mar 14, 2018  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Well, as you know, the timing really helped. It was an excellent segway/leadIn, and it just kept the great going. :happybounce:
Have you played Smash? I hope you've played enough of it to realize how cool it is, and didn't only play the N64 one, 'cause that one doesn't do the series proper justice.
DanVzare Featured By Owner Mar 15, 2018
I've actually never played Smash.
I've got a Gamecube and a Nintendo Wii, and I've never bought Smash. Mostly because I'm not really into Fighting Games, and Smash never ever seems to go down in price.
But I recognise it as a game that deserves its popularity. Even though I've never played it. Not even the N64 version, which I probably could easily, if I looked online.
ToddNTheShiningSword Featured By Owner Mar 15, 2018  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
WOW :wow:

Are Gamecube and Wii region-locked? :lock: I don't need both Melee AND Brawl when I can play Smash 4 and Switch Smash is coming. ;)

Of course, a huge part of Smash's popularity is how different it is from your average fighting game. Otherwise it'd be a mugen. :XD: And the few Smash clones there are never do very well, but can cost a lot to make.
DanVzare Featured By Owner Mar 16, 2018
Hmm... yes, I think they are region locked. Even if they aren't, there could possibly be an issue with displays.
If my memory serves me correctly, I think the only Nintendo consoles that aren't region locked, is every handheld they've ever released after the Gameboy.
Don't quote me on any of that though.

Ah yes, I know that the way Smash plays is quite different to most fighting games. I know how instead of health you instead have that percentage meter, where the more you get damaged, the more you fly around the screen when you get hit, increasing your chance of being knocked off the stage. I'll probably play it one day. :)
ToddNTheShiningSword Featured By Owner Mar 16, 2018  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I still never abandoned the idea of sending you a birthday present by literal mail, and seeing the final season has started of Emoticomic, that got me more thinking about that. I could have sent you a Smash. Now I have to keep all the Smash to myself. :XD:

And then, of course, a lot of the difference with Smash involves how you move differently in that than in other 2D fighters. The movement in Smash actually allows for low-quality platforming! As in, actually platforming! So it's different that way, too. And that control scheme! People like the Smash Bros. Melee so much that they still manufacture GameCube controllers, even though the GameCube itself is long dead, just so people can use them to play Smash. And Smash alone. And Smash actually supports GameCube controllers in it's options!

But I think that getting the maximum enjoyment from Smash requires liking a selection of Nintendo characters (and/or things very close to Nintendo's ownership)... and I never got the feeling you liked Nintendo that much. I guess you cared about Pokemon before, and I'm pretty sure you disliked Zelda... but then you also get little bits of Sonic, Snake, Pac Man, Ryu and Bayonetta between the games, and stuff like that. Do you actually like any of Nintendo's properties that much? :?
DanVzare Featured By Owner Mar 19, 2018
Ah yes, good point. I forgot about the platforming. Despite having never played Smash, I know a lot about it.
Also I'm sure that people don't just want GameCube controllers for playing Smash. Because as an owner of a GameCube I can safely say that the GameCube controller is THE BEST controller I have ever used. All it needs to be better, is a Z2 button on the other side, a select button to be placed to the side of the start button (with the start button being move a bit off center to make room), and the analog stick needs to be pushable, thus giving four extra buttons. And don't forget the "home" button that modern controllers all need nowadays.
Oh, and replace the d-pad with something more akin to what the Playstation has.
If you do all of that, you will have the ultimate controller.

Wait, you think I don't like Nintendo?
I actually love Mario waaaaaaaay more than Sonic. Sure Sonic's got a cool set of characters, but in terms of gameplay, Mario is actually fun. Mostly because Mario actually has a RUN BUTTON! You just can't do precision platforming with momentum based physics. Also, Mario is always more zoomed out. But I'm getting ahead of myself, I'm going to give you a detailed list of all of the Nintendo games I've played, and my thoughts on them.

Donkey Kong: It's a bit like ET. Fun for one level, then you get bored.
Ice Climbers: The appeal lasts a bit longer than Donkey Kong. Not much longer though.
Urban Champion: Actually quite fun. The appeals lasts quite a while for me, despite the repetitive nature.
Mario Bros: So very boring.
Super Mario Bros: Looks like crap, but is still pretty fun, even to this day.
Super Mario Bros 2: I don't like it.
Super Mario Bros 3: It's better than Super Mario Bros, but there's just something about those aesthetics that I don't like, also I want to replay levels!
Super Mario World (completed): This is probably nostalgia speaking, but I absolutely adore this game.
Yoshi's Island: It's not as good as Super Mario World.
Mario Paint: Still kind of fun even to this day.
Mario and Wario: A simple puzzle game that's fun for a short while, but gets boring quickly.
Mario Picross: I can't play Picross.
Mario RPG (completed): Absolutely brilliant. Although that final boss is too hard.
Super Punch Out: Too difficult, and a bit boring and repetitive.
Dr. Mario (completed): I absolutely adore this game, and this is the only other Match 3 game I like, the other being Magical Drop. I don't get why Tetris and Puyo Puyo are the popular ones.
Super Metroid: In hindsight, it's quite an impressive game, and I did get a fair distance in it, but it's not my type of game.
Super Mario Kart: An uncontrollable mess, I can't believe I actually used to play it.
Mario Kart 64: I've barely played it, but it only seems to be slightly better than Super Mario Kart.
Super Mario 64: There's just something so boring about this game. Maybe it's the camera, maybe it's the samey looking levels, or maybe it's the collectathon gameplay, but I just find it so boring.
Conker's Bad Fur Day (completed): Really fun, and very funny. Although ridiculously difficult in places, and really only playable once.
Diddy Kong Racing: Controls better than Mario Kart, but not that much better, and all of the tracks look the same.
Mario Kart Double Dash: So... boring... and not easy to control either (even though it's easier to control than the previous games).
Mario Kart Wii (completed): The first decent Mario Kart game. Because they finally made it possible for your kart to turn in a way that doesn't feel like your steering wheel is connected to your back wheels!
Wii Fit Plus: Surprisingly entertaining... for a while.

Game and Watch: There's some good ones among them, they help pass the time. My favourite is Vermin.
Legend of Zelda Oracle of Time and Seasons: I couldn't be bothered to play the game properly, so I just used to load my sister's saves, and mess about.
Super Mario Land 2: I didn't play it much, I borrowed it from my uncle. It seemed alright though.
Super Mario Land 3 Wario Land (completed):I loved it. Although it was a bit too zoomed in.
Wario Land 2: Too frustrating.
Wario Land 3: Also too frustrating.
Wario Land 4 (completed): Brilliant game, I loved every second of it. I even got 100%.
Wario Ware (completed): A surprisingly fun game. It even has Dr. Mario in it. I actually got 100% on this too.
Legend of Zelda Minish Cap: I got through the intro and never played it again.
Kirby and the Amazing Mirror: I have no idea what I'm doing or where I'm going, yet I've gotten four shards before getting completely stuck. Multiplayer is fun though.
Pokemon Red: I got this after playing Pokemon Gold. It was such a step down, I never played it properly.
Pokemon Gold (completed): I loved this game, and I still hate that it's the only one with two regions (except for the remake of course).
Pokemon Ruby (completed): A great game, but why is there only one region, and why can't I trade with Pokemon Gold!
Pokemon FireRed (completed): A great game, but my sister didn't get LeafGreen, so I played it on my own, and it wasn't as fun.
Pokemon Mystery Dungeon Red Rescue Team: A really fun game. I'm still not sure why I stopped playing it.
Animal Crossing Wild World: Really fun game, I enjoyed it a lot. Although I really wish I knew how to get neighbours to stay.
Animal Crossing City Folk: This game only works on a portable! On a console, it's so boring, despite being the exact same! And those controls! Ugh!
More Brain Training (completed): I got it for the Dr. Mario minigame. I wanted it on a portable console. The game as a whole is pretty decent I guess.
Nintendogs: Quite fun. I actually still go on every day to feed my dog and brush it. Kind of lackluster though.

Notable games I've never played:
All Starfox games, mostly because I'm not interesting in those types of games.
Almost all Legend of Zelda games, the one's I've listed are the ones I've played. I can't say I dislike Zelda, because I've never properly played Zelda.
All but one Metroid games, seriously, I've only played one, and even with savestates I never bothered to finish it. It never got me invested.
All Donkey Kong Country games:
Earthbound, ok, I've actually played it a teeny tiny bit, but I didn't go further than the intro, so I can't give my thoughts on it.
Luigi's Mansion.
Paper Mario.
Mario Party. (I would probably like them. But who knows. They cost too much nowadays anyway, and apprently the Gamecube one, was the last decent one, and I can definitely understand way.)
Super Smash Bros.
Splatoon, I don't have a Wii U or a Switch.

I think that's everything. You'll have to let me know if I've missed anything.
Overall my favourite Mario character is Wario, and my favourite Pokemon is Zangoose.
