Barney's Mind - Episode 1 - Special Edition

There we go! I'm back with a special edition of Episode 1.

Barney's Mind - Episode 1 - Special Edition:
YouTube - Part 1
YouTube - Part 2

So, there's my Star Wars style extended edition directors cut or whatever you want to call it. Some things you might notice, first I changed it a lot. I did this on purpose so that it was fresh, I didn't want this to be just a boring re-voicing of Episode 1. Also, you'll notice I made it longer and added some things, most notably the bit with the surveillance room. Because of this I had to split it into two parts. Finally, you notice I changed the logo. This logo was done by GritYT for me and I liked it a lot so I'm going to use it for all the special edition videos.

Anyway, gonna take a "little" break but I'll get Episode 2 remade and I'll get that "making of" video I've been planing on doing. Finally, still planning on doing that Q&A so keep asking questions for us mind makers (and yes, I'm going to post the Q&A on YouTube).

That's all from me, later!

  7. Hey, Ian! Just curious. Why exactly are you remaking the first 3 Barney's Mind's?

    ReplyDelete
  8. I think he is ashamed of them! lol

    ReplyDelete
  9. oh, totally not ashamed of the originals I just think they're crap. I mean, I've learned so much since then and I feel that I can do a much better version.

    I think the biggest reason I'm re-doing them is all the time I see people watch episode 1 and go "this is crap" and then jump to something like episode 10 and say "actually this is pretty good, I'll go back and watch the rest" so I want to put up something to "hook" new viewers into the series.

    Another reason is I just want to. I think it's neat to see how my style has progressed and how my abilities have grown.

    Finally, because it's fun. I figured you guys would enjoy one last look at Barney before he goes away.

  10. Ok, i understand that. In fact, I was recently thinking about how when Barney's Mind first came out people were saying "this is a stupid rip off of Freeman's Mind" and now it is considered a... how do i say it? Good rip off. lol.

    ReplyDelete
  11. I would say its more of a "noteworthy addition to the 'Mind' series. Barney's Mind in general i mean.

  12. Yeah, I've been using the term "tribute" or "parody".

  15. hi guys im going to do a review of barneys mind ep1 remake vs the orenginal lets start with the old

    barneys mind ep1
    the episode is kinda bad at time you ooc (out of charicter)enspaly with the luran joke you copy some of ross's jokes and the intercom on the tram is too quiet so overall its kinda bad the resion i say its kinda bad is thear was some thing that you did relly good like the coversation with the guard that says the door is locked or even some of the jokes like "the names arr boring area 8 area 9=)!"or the donut joke that was done relly well but some jokes arr relly relly lame like "i am a ninja wah" that joke relly falls flat so after watching barneys mind episode 1 ill give it a generous 6 becuase im in a good mood and also i discoverd that your first episode was not really that bad just kinda bad so its 6 out of 10


    barneys mind episode 1 remake
    first off the video qualty kicks the old version in the butt did you change recorders or what? but this remake is not without flaws
    the new logo is ok dont get me wrong it very well made but barney in the new logo looks like a coal miner also barney seems too pessamistic i know you have it in the discription that hes pessamistic but in this remake hes like i hate the sky i hate this music i hate doors blah blah blah try to reframe from doing too many i hate blank those are the problems that effect both parts but but even each part has thear own pros and cons so lets review part 1

    barneys mind 1 redux part 1
    ok the intercom is way way too loud in fact for half the vid i could bearly hear you with the speacker on high and with headphones on! also was this your first take it felt like it at certen points also barneys has the ramble curse again these are the khans err cons now lets talk about the pros in this part first off i defantly like that "im back baby" that was just cool the loran joke is much better and evan "sucker!!" was better done good job but this part has taken some bad blows with it errors so im giving it a 7 out of 10 yes thats harsh but i was hopeing this would be better this was on the border line of being a 6 but it got better so its a 7 out of 10

    are you still reading this ian i hope so anyway here is part2

    barneys mind episode 1 remix part 2
    this one is much better the ramble curse is gone (yay) but it gets replace with "something" (booo) and a few more i hates and your coversation with the guard that got chewed out was a fail and a missed opertunaty to relly do somthing with it like you could of had a guest star do a voice with him kinda like when you had corky krimson and simon guest star you could of had any of them do a dub for that guard or you could of use barneys sound bites to make it seme to reply back like krimsion did with the scientise or hecu solders he encounterd but you did not so it ended up a fail these are the only real cons with this part now on to the pros you did a awsome job with the survalance room and it explanes why barneys goes to the gun room and i loved the sound bite that you picked for freeman and the audio is much better too so im going to give this a 8 it could have been higher but you missed some great opertuntys so its 8 out of 10

    ian i hope you read this and think about inprovements in the remakeing department

  16. uhh...the description of every episode says "a pessimisstic individual" so, he's supposed to be pessimisstic

    ReplyDelete
  18. @Anon: I can't keep reading....MUST...HAVE...PUNCTUATION!!!

  19. to the anon above my review its a long story so "sit right back and hear a tale"you see in 1999 opposing force came out it interduce alot of new things and tyed up alot of lose ends and gearbox said that they wear porting half-life to the dreamcast well in betwine the time of opfor and blueshift dozens of mods came out they hunger uss darkstar and AZURE SHEEP whats specal about azure sheep well it was about a barney who had a giral frend who also worked at blackmesa for half the game this barney serches for his girlfrend when they do meet they have to escape the gman who wants them for some resion anyway you revisit many areas of half-life and opposing force like you help freeman fight the blackops in the area befor he gets knocked out you see from the other side of the helipad shephard getting left behind you revisit the tram systum at the begining of halflife and many other places it interduce many new things like a hevsuit barney a female version of barney and delta force who are following the gmans orders and it interduce a ton of new wepions like a maching gun thing that the delta ops use and they had cutsceans beta enamys i think 14 chapters and voice acters(bad ones) anyway the mod apperd around the time when gearbox said halflife dreamcast was canceld and started working on a pc version of blue shift(blueshift was in production but as a bonus for halflife dreamcast)and so everyone was thinking will this be as fun and awsome opposing force or atlest azuresheepso in the early summer of 2001 blueshift came out on pc shelfs for i think $20 well people wear disaponted that it had only 6 chapters 4 new models coatless sci freeman sci version
    dr rosenburg and a no armor barney but it did have alot of new props and if high def is on newsound effects 3 new guns and new version on all models and a new armor systum but people wear disaponted with blue shift saying its a wast of money or that its the worst halflife game ever made over time thogh it has been a uphill battel some people are starting to like blueshift but it got another round of disapotment when it hit steam with twice the number of glichtes than when it first came out and that readers is the history of blue shift

  20. sorry cyh i have never been the best speller ever and i was in a rush when i was typing the review. by the way ian what do you think of my review?

    ps cyh what score would you give the review a 4? a 5? lol

    ReplyDelete
  21. I would give the original EP 1 a 7.5/10 and the Special Edition a 9/10.

  22. Is it just me or does the world hate punctuation and capital letters?

    I CAN'T BE THE ONLY ONE SEEING THIS! DX

    ....Or perhaps I've finally gone off the deep end and this is all just a horrible hallucination.

    Exclamation point, apostrophe, period, comma, semicolon, colon, hyphen, dash, question mark, and interobang....don't feel bad. At least I still love you, even if you are all in my head!!!

    ReplyDelete
  23. I agree Cyh, the world hates punctuation. Look up Victor Borge and see if you can incorporate "Phonetic Punctuation" to that review. That would be ever more fun to play.

    BTW, I love the remake, but I am keeping the originals, too. Barney will live on in the Hall of Fame in the Half-Life world, and I might ask you to write Barney's part of the script for the Half-Life movie script I am writing. *evil smirk* Yeah right. But if there ever was one, you would do an excellent job playing Barney!

    Have a good night, Muffins! Hahahahahahaha!!!!

    LakituWHOA!!

    P.S. I don't wanna be a pirate!

  24. Supplemental notice:

    I don't know if you know this, but the voice actor that did Dr. Wallace Breen on HL2 series died recently. I got the message on my Steam Board. Here is a link for you to post on your blog. It is from CNN.

  25. I don't know why everyone has problems with Ian, Krimsin, and Corky taking a few jokes from Freeman's Mind. I loved it when they did that! I consider it paying tribute to the "original"

    ReplyDelete
  26. And i dont mean "taking" like they're stealing from Ross, but I mean "using" jokes from Freeman's Mind.

    Michael

  27. Well, there's so much here I don't know what to comment on.

    Anyway, good review, I'll definitely take some of those to heart. I also felt that Barney had the ramble curse but, frankely, there's not much I can see I could do about it. The start of Blue Shift if boring. Once you get to the 2nd episode a lot more opportunities for jokes open up. I will take these to heart though and I always strive to make things better.

    As for punctuation, yea, people seem to forget them a lot. I wonder if the internet is slowly ruining people's abilities to speak English. Maybe more people would speak Na'vi if they knew that it doesn't have any punctuation and the spelling is all phonetic.

    P.S. Victor Borge (sic?) rules!
