Nostalgia Chick's Les Miserables - Not actually a 3rd anniversary spawned cross-over, but it does feature a lot of the TGWTG crew singing. I knew that Linkara, JewWario and Obscurus Lupa have nice voices, but I was surprised by Nella's wonderful pipes.
I think the coolest thing about the puppet vid is that the guy who made them is also an amazing cosplayer. The Atomic Robo that was in my Top 30 of pt2 (found at the beginning of the current thread), that's him. He's also the Yahtzee/Zero Punctuation cosplayer, and some other great stuff too.
Still won't help them pass the Bechdel Test, but it would be totally awesome. I thought of the idea watching Roses, Paw and Todd review "Head" a while back, but it didn't hit me until today that Lupa would be the perfect teammate for Roses.
EDIT: Even better would be one more on each side to match the 3 vs 3 in the movie. That might get a little too complicated for scripting and co-ordination of shooting, though. Not sure who would round out each side, either.
True, but they just added a seventh* today. I can't say I care for Diamanda Hagan's work, though. I find her terribly grating, mostly because she reminds me of all the worst parts of someone I knew in high school. It's like watching a horrible parody of a old friend, and it just creeps me out.
*JesuOtaku, Dena, Obscurus Lupa, Marzgurl and PushingUpRoses. Well, 9 if you count the individual members of Team NChick. I'm not sure who else gets counted. If Team NChick get counted, does Psychoneku?
I'm surprised at the amount of acting talent in this group. Even the weaker players (Paw, Film Brain, Benzaie IMO) still manage to be very entertaining. There isn't a real dud in the lot, and there are some pretty shining stars they're sharing the screen with. Spoony and Doug are at their charming, smarmy best. Lindsay is rocking the Elvish dialogue. You're right about 8-bit Mickey being a treat to watch. JewWario is hilarious. And Lupa is showing some seriously impressive acting chops.
Some of talent at TGWTG continues to impress me with how much growth they're capable of. For instance, I used to Marzgurl's videos to be kind of bland, but her latest work shows she's figured out to get herself across better on camera.
The two groups don't seem to be meeting even challenges. One group seems to have the majority of the fight scenes. I think that's because not everyone has a weapon to fight with and/or doesn't have a desire/ability to do fight scenes, but I could be wrong. It's still a lot of fun, and I'm happy with the balance of focus on various players.
Speaking of awesome stuff, though, if anyone hasn't checked out JesuOtaku's radio drama, it's amazingly good. Fruits Basket . I think it's based on an anime or manga or something, but I don't know. I'm really enjoying it having no clue about it's origins. The voice acting is very well done.
