Theme Song!

There are a lot of questions that we get asked repeatedly while producing our silly little internet series. Let’s run through a few of them, shall we?

“When is (insert episode number) coming?”

“Can I be a voice?”

“Will you marry me?”

“Where can I download the theme song?”

For some reason, we’ve never posted the theme song to The Leet World here. I guess we were always busy, you know, making the show. Jace, aka Damn Dangerous writes the music for our series, and you can definitely check him out at his myspace page– add him as a friend, he likes those. You can also get the theme tune here:

I know you’re all starving for Episode Nine details- but not yet. You will know more soon. For now, feel free to sign up for the forums, help us build our community, and re-watch your favorite episodes. Also, I have rounded up some of the best news tidbits of the last week or so from around the gaming industry:

The top 10 blunders of 2007, Sony repeats that MGS4 is PS3 exclusive, video games lead to a father shooting a son, the 360 is on pace for gaming’s best year ever, Japan loves them some Wii, and Warner Bros. sticks a fork in the next-gen format war.

We’re in the Future!

We are now in 2008. Where are my flying cars and robots? Nowhere. The future is lies, I’ve decided.

In honor of this new year, I bring to you more gifts, tidings, etc. First, we’ve been hearing that some people want the lolcat picture from the holiday special…

PlayerCat!

Second, I have the audio outtakes from Episode Eight. Funny stuff. To me, one of the best parts is when I’m doing the voice of the combine soldier (pre-effects, of course), and I slip into doing Cortez. I kind of freaked out when I did it, because it was so sudden. Also, every time Nick goes off in the “Chet” persona, it’s always hilarious. Give it a listen.

Happy New Year, dudes!

The Leet World Holiday Special

Downloads: Quicktime, Quicktime HD, iPod, WMV.

Presenting… The Leet World Holiday Special! We asked each of The Leet World cast members what they got for Christmas this year.  It’s a card, from us to you. Try to imagine it in an envelope in your mailbox.

From us to You…

Just like I promised, I have arrived this morning bearing gifts! Well, one gift to be exact. The Leet World Holiday Special! It’s a card, from us to you. Try to imagine it in an envelope in your mailbox. Sure, it’s a couple of days late, but I doubt there will be much complaining about that. Give it a watch. Share it with your friends.

There are also some other versions available for download…

HD Mpeg 4

640 x 360 Mpeg 4

640 x 360 WMV

Remember, there will be plenty of other extras coming in the next couple of weeks. And maybe even another video. Stay tuned!

Loot Whores!

Smooth Few Films wishes all of you dudes and dudettes a Merry Christmas, happy holidays, etc. From the bottom of our hearts, you have made the latter half of 2007 a year to remember.

I’d like to remind you all that Santa could be leaving a pretty special present here in the next couple of days. I hear it’s so cool he couldn’t even get it here by Christmas. So be sure and check the website, which for the purpose of this metaphor shall be a Christmas tree. And no, the present is not a subtitled version of Episode Eight (though you should expect that at some point soon as well). It’s niftier than that.

Also, drop by the forums and weigh in on your loot!

The Leet World, 1.8: If It Bleeds…

Downloads: Quicktime HD, iPod, WMV.

Someone has a bone to pick with The Leet World cast! Who is this mysterious character, and what are his true intentions? Who will survive the showdown? And how will the teams cope when they are pushed to their limits? It’s the midseason finale of The Leet World!

If You Want Blood

We now present Episode Eight of The Leet World, “If it Bleeds”. This marks the halfway point of our season and is the midseason finale, of sorts. We’ll be taking a few weeks off from making episodes to get ready for the next half of the season, and taking some steps to ensure that the show just gets better and better. But, as always, there will be plenty of extra treats for you guys over the next few weeks, as we’ll have time to get some cool bonus content on here. And I promise you you’ll want to look at it. Trust me.

We’d like to thank you guys for being loyal visitors and fans, and it’s your participation and eagerness that makes this all the more fun. Smooth Few Films definitely couldn’t do this without your support. It’s been a great ride so far- here’s to more!

Enjoy! Also, be sure to keep voting for our Ziddio contest entry– today is the last day to vote!

You, You Got What I Need

Things have been going well with the release of “The Over-Achiever”! If you’re here for it, just scroll down.

But now, on to our pride and joy, The Leet World- the release of Episode Eight is upon us- it’ll be here in the next day or two, so “get your popcorn ready”, to quote the lovable Mr. Owens. It’s actually going to be the biggest episode yet (clocking in at around 12 minutes as of now), so get your bandwidth ready, too.  Remember, we’ll be taking a short break from making actual episodes of the show once Episode Eight is released, but there will be some great post-Christmas presents for you guys!

One other thing- so far, things are going well with the Ziddio contest we entered (using our Halo 3 video)- but we still need more votes! The winner of this contest gets some nifty prizes, including some great opportunities to show your videos to more and more people.

It would really help us out if you would take the time to go vote. All you have to do is register at Ziddio.com, and then click here to go to our video, and give it a good rating! We’re not asking you all to make multiple accounts or down-vote other videos or anything, so please don’t do that- giving us a good vote will be more than enough to do your part.

Halo 3: The Over-Achiever

A young soldier struggles to find meaning in a world that is driven by Achievements. This is a short created in the Halo 3 engine, captured at 720p. Anyone that’s had any experience in the world of XBox Live should understand the plight of the characters involved. We hope you all enjoy it. We’re thinking that this could turn into a regular series of shorts created in Halo.
