We follow the numerous misadventures of the evil villains, and the resistance group out to stop them, in the fully operating video-game world, cobbled together of nearly everything released within the medium(to which this whole franchise is a huge love letter to) released in the last twenty years or so(since the early 90's), with the internal logic thereof(which is poked fun at relentlessly). While this does get off to a slow start, it only gets better as it goes, with jokes improving in speed, flow and humor(that is nicely varied, with silliness, wordplay, satire, etc.) and references increasing exponentially in cleverness factor and amount. This is true of the voice acting, as well, and the cast includes famous guest stars who have appeared in well-known titles in the field. As it gets further, it also becomes more of a cohesive storyline. The first 14 of the 39 episodes(and there's a priceless Christmas special and April Fools one, as well) build up to the first movie, the rest set up the second one. The films are the greatest quests of our heroes, this fleshes out the world, not to mention the characters. They are a large part of the appeal of this, representing either archetypes or specific roles from different genres(and since this covers this very wide and ranging art, not all of it will be to everyone's liking, it depends what you've played and your preferences), and making impeccable points about them. Count Vile, essentially a dimwitted 14-year-old girl in the body of a maniacal sorcerer who wants to rule the world(of course!), Vlad, the vampire overlord who's had enough of fighting off the others or causing misery(he really just wants to relax with some TV, now), his nemesis Trenton Belfast, a boomerang-cross-throwing Bible-thumper, Plumber Pete who just can't rescue that Princess Passionfruit often enough from castles(no matter how often he's told that she's in another one), the jerk Buzz Porcupine(seconds pass like hours to him!), the space warrior Sam, the ninja Lin-Ku(who is never shy to attempt to see if his weapons can harm this or that, or killing guards that he doesn't technically need to), and of course, Scarthcaroth(he was cobbled together from the DNA of an alien god, then cloned or something, and he feeds on the life force of the planet... I don't know, nobody really understands it, but they all agree that he's pretty cool). What little music there is shows that it's composed by someone skillful, and who understands that parody doesn't mean everything should be over the top. The sound FX are reasonable. Where this really shows that it's a zero-budget(that doesn't have to be a negative) production is in the not-that-impressive animation. Do keep in mind that you can watch this legally for free online, so I urge you to check it out. There is a lot of bloody, violent, disturbing and gory content, as well as a little mild to moderate language in this. I recommend it to anyone who finds entertainment with a joystick in their hands(not in that kind of way... get your mind out of the gutter). 8/10
