Review as requested.
While the whole "Mario vs Sonic" thing is overdone, I can respect that this was made as a tribute to the late Randy-Solem. So... good job. Just don't make too much of a habit out of it.
Again, I think that there were some writing issues. Couldn't really dig the way Sonic was portrayed. Yeah, Sonic can be cocky, but it is perhaps a mistake to portray him as immature.
If it were me, I would have found a way to do the entire interaction in pantomime. Sometimes too many words just get in the way.
Not bad, but you could really use some better writing. The f-bombs kind of ruin your more retro presentation. If you want to create the impression that this is a more "canon"-styled Ken Masters, you probably shouldn't have him cussing like a teenager. (I know the usual expression is "cussing like a sailor", but sailors know how to cuss properly.)
At least do a spell check. When text is your only means of telling a story, you might want to make sure that it's polished and correct. Contrary to popular internet belief, spelling does count.
Thank you for not mentioning "Proxicide" in your review. Btw, Can you also review my first one too?
Now THAT'S more like it.
Expand and build upon this formula. The choreography may look too much like the source game to really be called a "style" for right now, but the building blocks are there. This is the bar that you need to be hitting every time now.
Shovelware plus thirty second advertisement at the beginning plus ads at every win/loss screen equals one big fat zero for you.
Was the three cents you got from ad revenue worth it?
this game revenue purely from ads not sponsorship, can you at least courage developer work?
The piss-poor audio compression made the whole endeavor a complete waste of time. When your only real asset is sound, you want to make damn sure that sound is of the highest quality possible.
You used 1.8 out of a possible 10 MB. There was plenty of room there to up your sound quality. Instead, you compressed it such that there could not possibly be any practical use for it whatsoever. Why bother then?
+3 for having adequate coding knowledge to make a soundboard in the first place. Next time, do better than 16 kbps mp3 compression and you might not miss out on the other seven.
Sixth highest for now...
I got 1,841 with a Microsoft Mobile Mouse 3500. I shall enjoy my #6 placement for whatever fleeting moments I can.
Nice score man.
Ponies have a hard time operating slot machines. No thumbs.
Also, brilliant tactic having your inbox full and no news posts. That way, people have to review your song to leave you a message. Diabolical, but brilliant.
Gotta give you props for that. Assuming it was intentional, of course.

My opinion in general? Honestly, this whole thing could use a lot of work.
Firstly, the VO doesn't change much in tone or delivery. Out of five minutes of dialogue, only about ninety seconds of it display any real degree of emotion or strain. The rest is simply the same tone with occasional accent changes. The writing for the "commercial" bits is distractingly non-commercial. Also, there is something weirdly off about his word stresses. I don't know the reason for this, but sounding like English is your second language will make a difference in radio ads. ...and when radio ads make up 75% of your demo, that's not good.
If you're going to use a "radio-style" delivery, you should use more than just the advertisements. Those only show an ability to read words on a script. To better show tone, try some "station identification" bits - those sometimes wacky, sometimes serious, always corny, and always identifiable sections.
You need to show range more than anything. Considering that this is on Newgrounds, it's probably safe to assume that this isn't for commercial use. It's for saying, "Hey, guys! I'm available for voicing your cool movie!". Cool movies require range, inflection, and characterization, not simply the reading of lines.
That said, try putting together a "character demo" rather than a general demo reel.
I don't consider myself a VO and my opinions or advice on the subject will never be as good as those of actual VOs. That said, take any advice from me on this subject with a grain of salt. There's a decent chance that I don't actually know what the hell I'm talking about.
I'll give you a ten.
I wish that I could help or provide constructive criticism, but I must admit that I am a very poor judge of any rap style. I'm strictly metal.
Lol, it's cool!
