Really Pathetic Genre - The machinima

What is Really Pathetic Genre? I hear you ask in confusion. Really Pathetic Genre (or RPG for short) is yet another machinima series. What is a machinima? I hear you utter in perplexity. A machinima is a relatively new form of entertainment. What it is is a series of videos available for download on the internet (though some particularly popular machinimas may release DVDs). These videos have been made by capturing video off the computer screen while playing a game. The game has usually been customised first, and extra effects and voices may be added afterwards. The end result is a (usually) humorous video.

Really Pathetic Genre is a bit different to your normal machinima though. It does not focus purely on humour, and as the videos progress a serious and interesting story unfolds itself, as well as character development and all that. Of course there is still some humour along the way to keep it interesting. As well as this, RPG does not have voices or sound added into the videos, but uses in-game text to convey speech. RPG follows the adventures of a small group of unlikely heroes as they begin their quest to restore the flow of beer to Homtown, but this is only the beginning of the dangers and adventures that await them. The humour in RPG comes largely from making fun of the RPG genre, especially console RPGs. There is still humour coming from other sources as well though.

Even if people don't want to download the videos, I'd appreciate any feedback on the website itself. Check it out!
background color = bad
concept = good

the background is ... well distracting and somewhat painful to look at, choose a less brilliant color.

also raring (compressing) a video file doens't reduce it's size a whole lot (because it's already a compressed .wmv) and not everyone wants to spend the time uncompressing it (or has winrar, or has a winrar copy that's not expired (as i found out)) unless of course you have a serious bandwidth problem.
admin/mod plz remove this post, i must of clicked twice by accident.
You'd be surprised. The best example so far is the yet-to-be uploaded episode 3, which is about 20mb uncompressed and only 6mb when compressed with rar. Quite impressive I think. I any case that's about a minute or two to compress it for me, but about an hour quicked to upload
