My Best of 2013


Flash Player 8 is required to view SitBack. Get the latest version of Flash Player.
Here's, what I feel, is my best work of 2013. I drew very little this year, and I'm generally not very pleased with my work, but here's the best of it. (Very "mature" works not included).

Random from My Best of 2012

These are, I feel, the best drawings I did in 2012. I'm generally pretty pleased with this past year, though I wish I could have gotten more done.

Random from 2011

Here are all of my works of 2011. It was hard for me to pick my favorites being that most of them were huge collections, so I just threw em all in here. Enjoy.

Critiques

Larry Koopa Cycle by HoekKadoogen

This, simply put, is amazing. I didn’t expect it to be animated when I first clicked it. The movement is incredibly fluent. This piece ...

NES is BEST!

Here's just a look at my ever-growing collection of NES fanart I've been working on for a year and change on and off. This is my little ode to the greatest gaming console of all time, and some of my proudest work in my gallery.

I'm a cartoonist who makes generally comedic comics and more. I've worked a lot on comics and creations over the years and am hoping to get my work out there. Check out my art blog at theblogofbrendancorris.blogspo….
I love video games and pretty much anything 80s - music, movies, TV, cartoons, toys, fashions, videogames, etc.

Things to know before checking out my gallery? I draw a lot of ugly/twisted designs. If that kind of style bothers you, then don't look. I also don't really hold back on mature/questionably offensive material of some kinds. If you are easily offended, don't look at my stuff.

Current Residence: Red Bank NJ - it's a toilet
Favourite genre of music: 80's pop and new wave
Favourite style of art: Demented cartoons
MP3 player of choice: iTunes/iPod - yeah, I'm a tool, though I kind of hate my Nano
Wallpaper of choice: Always varying but always something I drew. I love my own crap.
Favourite cartoon character: My characters... other people's characters?... I guess Taffy from Clayfighter. He's crazy.
Interests
This was just brought to my attention, but the DLC for Mario Kart 8 finally went up on Nintendo's website today, and it involves playable Link and several F-Zero references. We also get Cat Peach and Tanooki Mario as playable drivers..... now, I hate to sound like I'm just a crabby old gamer complaining about Nintendo's every move, but... this sucks. As for the two new cups (8 new tracks) that's freaking AWESOME. Thank you Nintendo. But I can't help but hate this "turn everything into Smash Bros" attempt Nintendo's been making recently. Games like Nintendo Land and now MK8 are just turning all Nintendo franchises into one generic universe. I mean, Link really doesn't fit in. Not only is his art style wildly different, but cars shouldn't even exist in his world. Maybe if they had gone with his original cartoony design it would have been more understandable. Now, the Blue Falcon car is a reasonable cameo, but there's an entire Mute City stage. The worlds of F-Zero and Mario are practically polar opposites. This stage has no place here. There was also what looked like an Excite Bike stage, which is actually pretty understandable and OK for me if true. Plus, we already have three different forms of Peach and Mario each (not counting the dozens of other characters who look like them) do we really need MORE alternate costumes? So now there's Mario and Peach, Baby Mario and Peach, Metal Mario and Peach, AND Mario and Peach dressed in dopey furry costumes. 

This announcement is for DLC released this November. However, yet another DLC bundle comes out in May of 2015. This one brings 2 more cups to the scene (8 more tracks) giving us 50% more total stages which, again, is freaking awesome, but this bundle also adds three new characters: Villager, the generic avatar from Animal Crossing that is suddenly a mascot in every game just because he was idiotically placed in Smash, plus ANOTHER Animal Crossing character, Isabelle, some little brownie scout dog thing that as been forced in my face for the past year constantly. I know Animal Crossing is more popular than I give it credit for, but... REALLY??? Why are all of these randomly selected characters being put in MARIO Kart? It's like no series is even its own thing anymore. Before you know it they'll have to rename their series: Nintendo Kart, Super Nintendo Bros., The Legend of Nintendo, and Nintroid. Cameos are cool every now and then, but these guys are just going overboard now. The thing that made Smash Bros seem so wondrous was being able to see all these different characters in one game for once. If all these characters and worlds are blended all the time anyway, SSB is just another average Nintendo game. I understand that SSB is super popular and many of their fans want more with all those characters, but there's such thing as moderation. These characters have no place in MK. Especially the Animal Crossing characters. At least Mario and Link always went hand in hand as Nintendo's main all-stars. They're the faces of Nintendo and have been since the NES. AC is a random, averagely successful game that came out more than 7 consoles deep into Nintendo's career and has no direct connection to Mario at all. This is just simple advertising - whoring out their games through Mario and Smash. I'll be getting this DLC for the stages, but I really hope there's a way to avoid uploading the characters. Oh yeah, and "Dry Bowser" is back. Yeah, there just weren't enough variations of characters we already have, we need dead Bowser. Man, why couldn't that "leak" with Diddy, Birdo, Kamek, Plessie and E. Gadd be real instead of this?

Since nintendo is starting to re-skin games with nintendo characters like Pokemon Rumble(Diablo with pokemon),Hyrule warriors(Dynasty warriors with Zelda characters),and Pokken tournament(Tekken with pokemon),what do you think they'll re-skin next?

Hopefully nothing. While I am looking forward to Hyrule Warriors, I feel they are getting to carried away with the idea. Maybe if they wait a long time before doing another I will accept it more. It just seems like the only time Nintendo lets other companies make games on their console it has to either be a re-skin of that company's game with Nintendo characters, or just feature dozens of Nintendo themed costumes and cameos. Basically, it just makes Nintendo seem selfish, People are only allowed to make games for them if it advertises their few existing franchises, treating those 3rd party games as advertisements rather than rightful games.

While I do see nintendo easter eggs as a sign of welcoming them to the nintendo family,It is sad that nintendo now has to rely on fan service. This generation of gaming feels like being selfish with thrid party support. Playstation having exclusive third party content,xbox making third party games timed exclusive. It feels like people would rather put money on games full of Day one DLC(pre order bonus map/quest packs),On disc DLC(Skylanders and disney infinity),And Digital deluxe versions(More money on half of the stuff companies cut out of the original release) rather than Nintendo who have no interest(SO FAR)into doing those practices. I know people want something different,but is it really worth Day one DLC,on disc dlc,and digital deluxe versions just to get something different that you have no idea if it'll be good. I don't know,Maybe I'm missing something,I'm mostly into movies rather than gaming so I could be. All I hope for is UFC Punch Out will never happen. Man that went all over the place. =/

Nintendo's dipping their feet in the DLC lake now. Amiibo figures will be coming out this holiday season, which are just like the Skylanders and Infinity figures, and Mario Kart 8 just received loads of downloadable content. It seems like Nintendo's realizing that other consoles are making most of their money by forcing gamers to constantly download and pay for stuff for games they already bought, and now they want to try the same thing to make up for their financial struggle with the Wii U. I feel like DLC would be less of a turn-off for me if developers who knew there would be DLC made for a game, just charge less for the base price. If they aren't finished with a game but want to release it early just to make money quicker (and extra bucks down the line) there's no reason why we consumers should have to pay extra for that. Current gen games typically run at a whopping $60, far more than even new games cost during last gen, so paying even more for DLC is just robbery, really. Developers release a game before its finished for full price, knowing they will release more in the future and charge those same buyers again. It's just a low, dirty scheme. Back in the day, if the deadline was coming and you didn't put everything you wanted into your game, you'd delay the damn game. Unless if you were Capcom. Then you'd just re-release the game 20 times under different prefixes like "Super" and "Turbo".  The average game these days, including DLC, usually ends up costing anywhere from $75-over $100 when all calculated. Paying that much for a game is just ridiculous.

www.polygon.com/2014/8/27/6074… Spamming your profile, but more news. I'm not one for those gits at Polygon, but I don't think they'd directly put words in this man's mouth.
Maybe we'll get a difficult Nintendo game for ONCE or I don't know, an F-Zero.

I don't really know if this implies and upcoming games, but man it's funny to hear Miyamoto bashing casual gamers and calling them "pathetic" when practically all that guy has been putting out for console generations is silly party games for casual gamers. Man, sometimes those Nintendo employees can come off really snobby and dickish.

Since Five nights at freddy's(a indie horror game) and the silent hills demo are gaining popularity, Have you ever played any horror games(besides castlevania)?

BrendanCorris Featured By Owner 6 days ago
Not really. Although I love horror as a story genre (books, movies, etc...) horror games usually turn me off. They usually revolve around survival horror, and I find slow paced/roaming games in the fashion of shooters rather boring. Some people have shown me some, which the names of escape me at the moment, that are not weapon-based yet stealth, hiding and exploration based, and while they seem much cooler than most horror games, almost like playing a nightmare, they still look too slow-paced and roaming-oriented for my personal tastes.

You might like this one instead then. www.gameshed.com/Scary-Games/I…
It's a decently paced game. Can be completed in an hour if you can get through the puzzles quickly enough. I don't usually like horror games, but this is a very special game to me.

Damn, that looks pretty cool. I might give it a try. The screen with the people hanging reminds me of a really twisted boss fight from Splatterhouse.

Ever play a game called Fez? 
It has a stigma attached to it because the person who made it is...vocal. But it's a pretty cool game. I originally brushed it off because I was sick of the 2D indie craze. The generic "SUPER PIXEL 2D 8 BIT RETRO JUMP MAN CRAFT" games that have been pushed out hourly. But this game is pretty unique. 'u`

Yeah, I've heard of it as well as the creator and his threat to kill himself if the game didn't succeed. It looks like a good game but I currently have no way of downloading virtual titles. I'd like to give it a try at some point.

Shit's insanely difficult. The puzzles are unreal. You literally have to decipher the game's fictional language and understand it fluently for many late game puzzles. I've heard one even requires the understanding of binary.
