    I really hate that the fans spent all those years going “No more CGI! We want models!”, then as soon as they get models there is a ridiculous amount of nitpicking and complaining, followed by “No more models! WE WANT CGI!!!”

    Most of Series 3 has this really annoying bloke going “TUH-HUH-HUH-HUH-HUH” over it. Most noticeably in Polymorph after “This is a scalpel.” They got rid of him in the Remastered versions.

    But I adore the extended “Oh-hoh-hoh-hoh-HOH!” after the Series 8 cliffhanger gag in The Beginning.

    That split-second effect in Gunmen of the Apocalypse as Kryten plugs himself into the mainframe is absolutely stunning, and it looks impossible for its time.

    I’m also stilled wowed to this day at the shot where Cat high-fives himself.

    The new Starbug looks terrible. The legs are too far apart, it’s the wrong shade of green, the boosters are too big, the kerning on the “STARBUG 1” logo is bad, the cockpit is too round and it looks like a model.

    I didn’t like it on my first viewing, but on re-watching it with a friend I found myself quite entertained. It’s not the best Red Dwarf episode, but none of it really offends me and a lot of it is quite funny. Apart from “spit-on-a-wrist”, obviously.

    On the Dwarfcast, Cat’s random outburst was seen as out of character, but I feel like it was perfectly Catlike. Him forgetting he wasn’t allowed to criticise felt very similar to me to the bit in Beyond a Joke where he forgets he’s in GELF costume and starts speaking English.

    I don’t think there’s anything offensive about Ziggy and his mannerisms and attire, nor do I think there was any negative intention there. In fact, speaking as a slightly camp, dreadful artist with horrific fashion sense, I feel like I’d behave the same way if placed in his situation.

    Nice work! I was watching it thinking “This’d be so great if they threw in the smeg up where Robert says the place is a complete shithole” and then it turned out you’d done exactly that. I was in hysterics!

    The deleted scenes work really well in this edit. They’re better than the majority of stuff that made it into the official version. That said, I really miss the jokes about Roy and his finger-wetting machine.

    There’s a guy in Series III who constantly goes “TUH-HUH-HUH-HUH-HUH”. Best example I can think of is after “This is a scalpel.” Drives me up the wall. One of the few improvements of the Remastered versions is that they got rid of him.

    Well the problem with that is it’s redundant, as you’re in the cinema as you watch it, effectively listening to two audiences laughing at once. Of course, while a film has an audience, it doesn’t have comedy and timing based on that audience’s reactions, but if you want that in a movie-like experience, there’s theatre.

    I always thought it’d be cool to see animation done with a studio audience. You could show the cartoon to them with all the animation done aside from lip sync (Maybe mouth flaps or a very rough cut), and all the sound mix aside from voices. Then get the voice actors to perform it live as the cartoon plays, pausing the video whenever there’s a woofer, or they want to improvise or milk the gags. Then slap it on, do the lip sync last, and you’ve got an animated sitcom.

    > And the camera could have used some tweaking (or at least a freer manual override).

    This is where my problem with the controls lies. In Mario 64 you can move the camera around a little bit, but it’s still a bit stiff. In Sunshine you can move it around as much as you like. In Galaxy you have literally no control over the camera, which darts around all over the place as it pleases. This + camera-relative control + being able to walk on the walls and ceiling = clusterfuck.

    I’ll admit that Sunshine isn’t perfect (the second half of the game is a bit dull and the final “level” and “boss” “fight” is a disgrace) but every time I play it it sucks me in just like the 2D games do. But whenever I get Galaxy out I simply do not want to play it. I have to force myself into it, and I occasionally enjoy bits here and there, but on the whole it just doesn’t interest me.

    Super Mario Sunshine gets a lot of flak, and I don’t think it’s fair. It’s the only Mario game that dared to do something different and creative with the series since…well…ever, and I prefer it to the extremely dull, unoriginal and impossible to control monstrosity that is Galaxy any day.

    >>>Super Mario World is better than Mario Bros 3, anyway.
    >>Word. Probably my favorite 2D platformer ever.

    I’m not sure if Donkey Kong Country is better than Super Mario World. Donkey Kong Country 2, on the other hand, is an absolute masterpiece. I don’t think any 2D platformer can top it.

    I must track down Simon the Sorcerer. I’ve always been an adventure game fan since I was little and I’ve been a RD fan for years, but I never knew about Chris Barrie being in it until recently.

    I love the growth of Guybrush’s character. In MI1 he’s ambitious, enthusiastic and somewhat clumsy, in MI2 he’s become really full of himself, which makes him even more prone to mistakes, causing Elaine to abandon him, in MI3 he’s been brought down to earth by his mistakes and his losses, and becomes more sensitive, and in MI4 he becomes child-like and goofy because his life is perfect, he’s finally proved himself and married his dream girl. I still haven’t gotten the cash together to buy Tales, but I’m looking forward to seeing how his character has progressed…

    “I wanna be a pirate.”

    “Yikes! Don’t sneak up on me like that!”

    Yeah, it can be quite jarring at times. One bit that made me wince was the repetition of “I do so!” “You do not!” when you speak to Captain Smirk. It’s really obvious that they’ve used the same take twice.

    However, I do really like that Guybrush has two different versions of his insult comebacks depending on whether you chose the right one or not.

    I’ve played it on PC up to near the end of Chapter Three. I’m definitely not as negative as a lot of people have been about this, as I absolutely love the way it’s been made. Basically no changes, no removals, just an upgrade to the graphics and sound, with an option to switch to the original game at any time if you’re not satisfied, which reminds me of Tikka Remastered. This is how all remakes should be. The more creative changes you make, the worse it gets. Pokemon Fire Red and Leaf Green, for example, are basically the same as the originals but with extra locations and features that are completely optional. Compare them to Tomb Raider: Anniversary, which mercilessly hacks away at the charm and atmosphere that made the original game so legendary, cuts the length and difficulty to half of what it once was and replaces all the interesting and likeable characters with badly-designed stereotypes.

    However, it’s not all poifect. I’m afraid I’ll have to side with Ben on the dodgy controls front. They’re worse than the controls in Escape From Monkey Island IMO. If they’d just included an option to show the interface on the upgraded version of the game it’d be fine.

    The voice acting I have no problems with, and I’m shocked at the amount of people they managed to get back from 10 or so years ago. The graphics, however, have a couple of flaws. While I have no problems with the style, there are occasionally a couple of pixelated bits from the original game’s art showing on the backgrounds and it looks really ugly. Why didn’t they just blur or paint over those bits?

    Another problem I had is the lack of animation in the backdrops. On Melee Island water doesn’t move in the original, but does in the remake. On Monkey Island the flowing water in the river does move in the original game, but…doesn’t in the remake. Why not?

    Despite its flaws, I adore the art direction. The effects are amazing and LeChuck has never looked better. The lava caverns under Monkey Island are probably the best looking part of the game. Roll on LeChuck’s Revenge!

    I think Back to Earth has done a similar thing to the Tomb Raider film – the fans of the series loved it so much they made forums dedicated to Angelina Jolie’s bowel movements, but critics thought it was terrible. Since Chris Barrie was in both of them, maybe he has something to do with it.

    Come to think of it, a Lost Vikings clone could work too. You’d have to use each character’s personal abilities to complete each level, i.e. Cat being able to jump and swipe at enemies, Rimmer with a holowhip which he can use to attack and grab onto things, Lister with “boost-shoes” nicked from Petersen’s locker that enable him to jump high and run fast, and the ability to swim (Kryten and Rimmer’s electronics would break down and “cats don’t like water, man!”) and Kryten would be able to break down walls, carry heavy objects and operate machines and things. And Kochanski could…oh, I dunno. Give her a plot device that enables her to fly or shrink or something.

    I can’t believe that Red Dwarf episodes are now basically just Youtube Poop-style remixes. Don’t get me wrong, I laughed at “It’s my BAGEL. My BAGEL as a complete and utter KOOPA FOOTBALL PLAYER.” and the bit where they just showed Kryten falling over and over again while a clip of Dr Robotnik shouting “PINGAS” played, but it’s a bit cheap. Plus I know that some people find the particular style of humour immature, and it certainly won’t help the show’s “lol smeg curry lager” image.

    It’d definitely be cartooney, since it’s a comedy game. Though hopefully better looking than the mobisodes!

    I think an episodic adventure game is probably the best format as well. Since the Dwarfers aren’t particularly athletic or good at handling weapons, the standard “walk around talking and pick stuff up” format fits fine. Probably playing as Lister and occasionally Rimmer as well. Hell, even Kryten, Kochanski and Cat!

    It’d have to have the original cast as well, but there are a lot of lines to record in an adventure game, so if not all of them are willing, Chris Barrie doing impressions of the others would be fine too. That way we could have Norman’s Holly back!

    I’ve been a massive fan of Telltale since they started, and they just keep shocking me with all these announcements, getting awesomer and awesomer with each one. Sam and Max, Strong Bad, Wallace and Gromit and now this. If they do Day of the Tentacle and Red Dwarf I think I’d just melt.

    So they found Kochanski in the end then, I never would’ve guessed she was hiding out within the cast of Horne and Corden – after all, it’s the one place nobody was looking.

    I’m not sure about her being played by Kerry Katona, mind. But Tony Slattery makes a brilliant Rimmer!

    I’ve just gone back and rewatched Series IX and X, they really were the best by miles, weren’t they?

    (Now that BtE has given us two fake series, I felt this topic needed a revival)

    I wouldn’t mind this so much if it weren’t for the fact that SFX actually WAS in Back to Earth. This reminds me of when I released part one of my group project fangame online and one of the project members gave it a rather scathing review…

    Loving it so far, and I have a request – could you move the “Killing Katerina” scene to before the bus journey, rather than after it? It just seems a bit odd that she’s somehow travelled that distance from the dimension hole and even gotten there before the others.

    I suppose at the end of the day it’s a hallucination, so it doesn’t have to make sense. But it would be a nice edit. :)

    Isn’t there a scene where Hollister is talking to Egghead Holly and they establish that he’s only imprisoning them to stop them taking over the ship/telling the crew what’s happened/finding the nanobots and getting rid of the crew?

    Just to get him out of their hair for a few months, presumably – they don’t have to pay him, feed him or keep him alive.

    Well, my college deadline was earlier than I thought and it’s become impossible for me to make an 8-minute cartoon in time. :/ So this project has been postponed – I might make it later on, but I’ve got other projects to focus on at the moment.

    My college project has been reduced to pretty much a homemade mobisode. Which is fine, as I could pretty much just make a two-frame animation of a stick figure wanking and they’d be impressed.

    I haven’t seen her in Father Ted, does anyone have clips of her in that?

    Also, she’s really good at being Rimmer in Balance of Power.

    Okay, I’m just cutting out a couple of really embarrasing bits, then I’ll send the script out. Ben, what’s your email?

    Sorry to bring back an old topic, but I’ve just remembered something that could easily explain this problem – Rimmer’s diseased mind affected Better Than Life, perhaps it did the same here to cancel out the elation?

    Okay, here’s a production update:

    So far the character designs for Holly and Kryten are finished, with Rimmer currently in production. I’ve written the script, but I’m not very happy with it at the moment. Anyone care to read it and possibly do some editing?

    >Oh, and YOU go to Art College? How did YOU get into Art College?

    The normal way. The same way everyone gets into art college. Failed me exams and applied! They snapped me up!

    Joking aside, it really is exactly as Red Dwarf stereotyped it – I’m always moaning about going to lectures first thing in the afternoon.

    I’m disappointed by the lack of “Howdy Doodly Doo!” …maybe it’s supposed to be the Series I Talkie Toaster, who was a deeper and more philosophical character than the Series IV one.

    > I?d like to hear one about Back to Earth as a whole now that it?s had time to sink in and ferment in the memory and estimations.

    This. Though I’d rather it waited until later, possibly after the next series or whatever. And if the words “laugh track” come out of John’s mouth one more time I’m gonna axe somebod-ay.

    That’s what I was thinking – I also wanted Waiting for God just because most RD fans consider it to be bad and I wanted to know why…

    I liked it, but it ended rather abruptly. Liked the subtle appearance of Hattie on the monitors!

    Looks like cosplayers at a fan convention – one furry, one guy dressed as Luigi and one fat guy in a tight t-shirt.

    I concur. I actually really like Beyond a Joke, I think it’s one of the best of VII, because it’s so silly and it makes me laugh. Also – no Kryten whining in Beyond a Joke. And I honestly think Blue is overrated, because even though the Rimmer Song and that kiss are brilliant, the rest of the episode feels like filler. The re-establishing the linkway scene and the salad cream/nan’s bra/pants drawer discussions add nothing to the plot and could fit into VII anywhere.

    Her hand is far too big for a computer.

    I know, I know, I’m sorry. But someone had to say it.

    Yeah, I see what you mean. Wash it down with a few Remastered episodes and you could be turned off forever!

    No, what I mean is if you didn’t like Back to Earth, watch VII and VIII and you’ll see that it could be worse. ;)

    Call me insane, but I’ve been watching a lot of Scrubs recently and I think Sarah Chalke would make a great Holly. If Red Dwarf ever got remade for USA again (Heaven forbid) she’d make a great stand-in for Hattie any day.

    If Hattie were to return, they should shoot the front and the back of her head at the same time, then layer the front of her head onto the back – that way you’d see her hair hanging down behind her head, and she’d actually look like a floating head – with two strands on either side it looks a little bit dodgy.
