Niche Gamer Shorts Episode 03 – Pootis

Welcome to Niche Gamer Shorts, an ongoing video series where we lampoon the mainstream games and game culture in a variety of ways.

This is an homage to the classic Weebl toon, “Badgers,” but with a Team Fortress 2 spin. We also have a little animated opening with our mascot, Mika!

  • Breezer

    Jesus Christ this was awful. What the fuck are you even trying to lampoon here? This is just one of those LOL EBIN xxDDD US GAMERZ HUH Big Bang Theory tier of “comedy”

  • I can understand if this one came out really bad. We’re just trying something different :-) I’m going to try to push our animator to do better next time, promise!

  • Breezer

    It wasn’t really the animation it was just…

    What WAS it? Was it a lampooning of games as you claimed it was or was it just something random you did for fun? It’s fine if it was the latter but be more honest with the content description. It also doesn’t help I’m into the randumb TF2 type of stuff

  • We’re trying to position the shorts as mostly a fun thing, while also making fun of things. This one came off as just silly, though :S

  • Breezer

    Welp, so long as you duders are trying I’ll check out whatever new episode comes out. I’ll say something constructive about that

  • Did you see the previous EPs? The Pao Trail one seemed to go over well ahahaha. I think we’re going to try more of that in the future.

  • Breezer

    No I did not actually. Hit me up with a link here.

  • Neospace

    Did I just travel 12 years into the past?

  • InfectedAI

  • sanic
