Next Global Crisis’ Side Mission 3

Next Global Crisis is back with another Side Mission video, which features a fight between Sebastian Lunar, one of the genre’s best villains, and in my opinion the best new character introduced in season 2, Erica Lynne.  Check out the stills, and my review, below.

Review by Sidekick

I was a broken man when Suki Deluxe was killed off, for no other reason than her death destroyed my hot-girl holy trinity of Bluebird, Angel and Suki. However, I feel quite comfortable that Erica Lynn can slide into that third spot. That woman is just insanely good looking.

The episode itself opens up with Sebastian giving an interview and talking about his “rehabilitation.” Erica soon intervenes and informs the public that Red Mist is not the altruistic group they claim to be. Sebastian hits Erica with a head butt and a knee lift and the action commences.

This fight itself is not all that heavy on peril. The advantage swings back and forth several times. Sebastian uses moves such as stomach punches, a back breaker and a reverse-bearhug to gain an advantage. However, Sebastian never quite catches on to the fact that Erica can duplicate herself and this ultimately leads to trouble for Mr. Lunar.

I enjoyed this episode—not just because it involved two of my favorite characters—but because it advanced the story. It was time for somebody from Elite Force to make a stand and attempt to inform the public about the danger presented by Red Mist. Erica did just that, and Sebastian’s actions in front of the cameras are not going to endear him to the Red Mist hierarchy.

One more thing, and then a question for the producers. First, I thought the photos that accompanied this release were top notch! They include some awesome stills of Erica and a great shot of Athena from a future episode. I don’t think I have ever covered the extras that come with these NGC films, but I thought these particular photos were too good to ignore.

As far as my question: Where the heck is Bluebird? I think we all need some more Claire Yellowless in our lives. Just my opinion.

We are all getting along Jobber Lover lol! I have my opinions, they have there’s and all is good. I for one is glad to see that kind of response from NGC in some ways as it shows they do care what people say about them, which I respect. It also confirms what we knew already by the quality of their work, and that’s their passion for the genre. And hey, not even the best of friends always agree all the time!

@ NGC – and by the way, I don’t review your products as a way of causing trouble, thank you very much. Strange that when I paint a glowing picture of a release, which I’ve done several times in the past, I don’t get criticised then – I wonder why?

@NGC – over-react much? I only said that I was a little disappointed and I am! Whilst I’ve no issues with you selling more, regardless of if it’s to make better films or just more money, my only gripe is that there’s never been an offer for anyone who has already purchased all your stuff on release, and that to me is a little disrespectful of that possible band of fans.

I didn’t feel let down at all. I have bought every episode but somehow lost one training session video. Yeah I actually can’t find it. Anyhow, it wasn’t one of my favorites so I was just going to leave a hole in my collection. With this offer I didn’t have to. So I’m happy with the offer. Thanks.

3 years 9 months ago

The only other mention of this was on Twitter, and I suspect that was you as well. Here is what I wrote there:

“LOL! Apart from the $42 discounts already in 2012, the free comic and out-takes vids? Hehe! Good stuff on way for members.”

There followed another comment about getting all that anyway as a matter of expectation which I didn’t reply to as I felt the tweeter might work it out for themselves….. so:

In 2012, someone who has bought every product as soon as it came out has made a saving of $42. This is enough for 2 free discounted episodes and a bus fare home. Plus a Free comic. If someone did not buy every product the saving would not be as high, the more products you buy immediately the more you save.

AND

The discounted products available in this offer are between 10 months and 3 years old. So the extra few dollars you paid a year ago for something as opposed to the 12 copies of it I made available, meant that you’ve been able to watch it for a year, and stay in contact with what is going on for all that time. Now, you can hold out for the next time I do this, but I’ve only ever done one other sale in 3 years and that was for 24 hours. They are very infrequent and won’t even be annual events. But by all means wait if saving a couple of dollars and not having a video for a year or two is fine.

Another thing… Do you not think that if I expand my customer base it might possibly result in superior films for you in the future? Why do you think I’m doing this?

I bend over backwards for loyal customers including further deals for this birthday that were not offered generally. I’ve received plenty of emails of support for this in the past 24 hours apart from this post and someone on Twitter who has made their first tweet in over a year to jokingly (but actually seriously) give me a hard time over it.

I can’t force you to buy my stuff, if you think I treat my customers badly that’s your opinion but I will not agree with it. If you no longer want to be involved then that’s unfortunate but stirring up discontent against me and my livelihood on here (as seems to be the purpose of every recent message) is not something I’ll just let happen without countering in any way.

Is it just me, or do other fans who already own every release from NGC feel a little let down by the offers (or more specifically in this case, lack of)? Seriously, it’s like Sky or BT; the only people to get the best offers are non – customers lol!

That is a pretty good move. We did something similar in Season 1 Episode 2 where we went from an overhead press into a backbreaker I believe. I think it might be possible again but it depends on the girl if you catch my drift.

Hey NGC Any chance we can see Lunar do this move on a heroine? It looks absolutely devastating and I think you can pull it off. It would be awesome if the heroine becomes badly wounded from the abdomen after the move, (much like Suki in episode 4 season 2) which Luner then uses to his advantage until the heroine eventually overcomes the pain.

Here’s the move: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ssWuRhnXUQM&feature=BFa&list=PL49030FFDB5148355

3rd Birthday Deal:

Yes, it feels more like 10 but NGC released it’s first video 3 years ago today. So what? I hear you cry. What’s in it for me? Well, this is what we are going to do to celebrate:

A ‘Better Than Half-Price’ deal on all Season One videos BUT only 300 sales available. So people can buy products until 300 have been sold, then the deal ends. We are also only allowing up to 12 sales of each product, so if you feel one video will be popular you need to act before it is gone. It may sound like a lot of sales but at these prices and because I am making them generally available too they will run out quickly.

If you check out all of the individual Season One pages you will see the prices have been dropped. Once 12 products have been sold of each the discount will disappear. Happy Bargain Hunting – And thank you for your support for the past 3 years. I hope we will have many more birthdays!

(A couple of the products are nearly gone already)

Sebastian v Angel, a definite yes. Angel was so good selling the beatdown in her first ever appearance (I actually just watched that the other day, it was great in her acting but also in the variety of the episode, there were fists, kicks, bearhugs, back breaking/bending, bondage, it was probably my favorite NGC episode) but in reality she hasn’t been in such a one sided situation since. I don’t see Angel as one of the elite heroines and I think Luner would (and should) eat her up, complete one sided annihilation.

I would also like to see a multiple knock out film, tying onto what JobberLover said above, it would be great to see a heroine knocked out a few times in a video, with the villain bringing her to only to give her more of a kicking. That is another element I loved in the first Angel video, she got knocked out/defeated repeatedly and in many different ways. Having such a set up would also in my opinion give NGC a chance to meet to different likes in a single video – one knock out by punch out, one by sleeper hold, one by whatever other method etc.

Another thing that I think is missing is the villains playing dirty. I mean, honestly I haven;t bought many videos recently but I can’t really remember the villains using underhanded tactics, it’s always a ‘fair’ fight so to speak. Something small like throwing something at the heroine to distract her or to blind her for a second or using a foreign object to get an advantage is exactly the kind of dirty play I would expect from these villains. A sneak attack on an unsuspecting heroine, or a two on one attack to stack the odds against her (another great opportunity to satisfy different likes, those who like the heroine getting a beatdown and those who like to see the heroine overcome great odds and win). I know that some such things can start looking slightly slapstick if done badly, but I am sure NGC could pull it off. Also I think it would help to build up the story and some real rivalries. What heroine would not bear a grudge on a bad guy who heated to defeat her?

Just a few more ideas to maybe freshen up things a little bit, what was supposed to be a short post supporting the Sebastian v Angel idea turned into a bit of an essay, apologies for that!

Deathcake,
Point taken. I should have said “many people in the HM Comunity” instead of “The HM Comunity”. Please take my comments in the spirit in which the were intended.

3 years 10 months ago

Oh I should state, tomorrow is our birthday so it will be surprises all around for our members and those who aren’t yet, keep an eye out.

3 years 10 months ago

@Tim Caine – Don’t worry I have a golden rule about promises that infuriates people in my personal life as well, I never make them. Not because I’m being slippery but because you never know what can happen. People expressed an interest in seeing that film, I wanted to hear more on the subject. If people take that as a promise to do it then I’m sorry, it is merely food for thought.

Here’s the thing, I cannot predict the availability of anyone on my roster. I can write ahead and hope to use them a dozen more times but there is always a chance it won’t happen. I’m not a TV network, I can’t tie anyone to contracts. The fact I’ve had two plus years of service from some of the actresses is because I’ve made the shooting experience pleasant enough (and paid a reasonable fee) to keep them interested. If I presented them with a rubbish script or a story arc that had no meaning they would walk, and it would be no less than I would deserve.

Angel, whom I first met nearly 3 years ago (a long time in showbiz) could easily turn around to me and say she doesn’t want to do this anymore, she’s going back to Russia, or somewhere else. These are young women whose lives, like all of ours, move on. This is why I cannot promise anything. Other than those fun occasions where someone requests something we have already shot.

One of the best parts of this job, but also one of the worst, is having to continually make allowances in the plot for the availability of actors. “I’m going to be in China for the next 4 months” that happened, “I now can only work on Tuesdays” that happened.

Someone earlier in this thread suggested that the plot for season 2 isn’t as tight as 1. Well, that may or may not be true, I know how it is supposed to end and I know how it is supposed to tie up. Will we make what I’ve currently got written? Dunno. I’m not in a position to force people to continue with us if they don’t want to. I’m actually extremely proud of the continuity I’ve been able to offer, where you can have a character re-appear after a year away. That is testament I think to the kind of employer I am and the atmosphere on our sets, without patting myself on the back too much. It is hard to get a plot working in these circumstances, but we did it before and we’ll do it again. Primarily I am a writer and this is fun for me.

Be careful Next Global Crisis!
Be VERY careful!
I would be very careful promising an Angel vs Sebastian episode.
If you are going to promise something like that, you’d better make sure you can deliver!
The last time we saw Angel she was pitted against a villain who ties up his opponents. The HM community went nuts with anticipation only to cry foul when not given a single shot of Angel tied up!
Later we were promised an Erica Lynn vs Sebastian episode and anticipation clambered to a load roar. Even though we were never “really promised” a beat down I think a lot of fans thought it was coming. Once again, the community was disappointed.
The Angel vs Sebastian anticipation is already starting to simmer and even boil. If you are going to promise something like that and then deliver anything less than a terrific beat down with tons of peril to Angel, you’re going to risk inciting a riot.
If you are planning on having Angel and Sebastian trade meaningless punches for five minutes and then Angel use her “Jedi Mind Trick” on Sebastian so that she can run out the back door… Then in my opinion, you should not even bother to shoot the video.
I’m just sayin’….

So far i’ve never purchased anything from Next Global Crisis. I’ve downloaded and watched most of their trailers, but if Angel was to get her ass kicked by Sebastian, I’d find the money somehow to buy the video. If Angel wins I’ll just watch the trailer. I don’t have enough money to be a supporter of anything other than completely defeated heroines.

Do I want to see Sebastian vs Angel? I feel like its been forever since Angel’s taken a good thrashing. I’d love to see it and I hope against hope that Sebastian dominates from start to finish.

As I see it the only risk in doing a Sebastian vs Angel video would be the risk in being disappointed because I would so be looking forward to it.

Reading these comments, I guess I’m a little less ‘content specific’ when it comes to what I like about a given SH video. While I like to see the heroine win after a tough fight, a heroine loss isn’t entirely a ‘deal breaker’; while face-punching, slapping, etc. can be done to infinity in these videos, I don’t automatically fast-forward to these parts as a rule..the list goes on…I would rather see a girl with some acting/stimulated combat abilities in these productions than some obviously ‘cut-and-paste’ fetish model doing same. Similarly, I believe a decent back story and some actual MOTIVATION for the combat is really important. It seems to me that it’s relatively easy to find a pretty girl to model a skimpy SH costume and be the subject of a lot of leering camera angles in the course of a beating..finding an actress who can SELL the idea of a brave heroine putting her life/health/dignity on the line for a REASON is much more difficult…and these are the productions I will pay money for!
That said, I liked this episode quite a bit…Erica Lynn sells the dialog and combat really well, and Sebastian is, as per usual , a lot of fun to watch…
If I had to find fault with this season’s episodes at all it would only be in comparison to the high standard set last season. I think the young ladies who have been introduced as heroines are very promising, but the characters from last season (Nina Hellfire; MIss Freedom; Angel) were so well thought-out and self contained that I think some of the current crop suffers a bit by comparison. I think this is largely because of time constraints on the part of the producers..I had the feeling that a LOT of thought went into the story arc and general background last season, while some of the eps/side missions recently have felt, at least to me, a little rushed.
But I see this as MORE of a reason to support NGC’s efforts..with more editing time and larger budgets, I truly think the sky’s the limit on what these folks can do.
Just my two cents, of course!

3 years 10 months ago

@Beast – Thanks, good comments as usual.

@Jobber Lover – I’m pretty cool with those requests. I think the next film will tick more boxes for you than this one did. As far as bruising goes I do like it myself if it is lightly done. I think if we turned girls into bloody wrecks the majority wouldn’t like it, nor would I. But you aren’t asking for that, just a bit more realism. I’m keen to do this and we are going to change the way we shoot to find more time for these sorts of things. It may not be overnight because it can be a bit like turning an oil tanker around, but rest assured I can cover most of these bases more often.

@Darklord – You will likely enjoy Episode 6 as it ticks some of the boxes you have outlined here. We will be working in as much variation as we can and I am sure it will increase, but fundamentally we do altercations, I think it’s fair to say that most long running series are formulaic to an extent.

Btw, I appreciate this kind of discourse because it’s entirely reasonable. It is the sort of thing that I am likely to listen to and attempt or at least give reasons why I can’t. If you need to get my attention this is how it’s done.

Perhaps “denial” isn’t the right word but as I’ve said before all of the NGC videos are mostly the same and blend together. Yes the setting may change, the costume and girls change. But it’s just one karate/fist-fight after another. Again and again. Three years now and the core content of each video rarely ever varies.

I guess is what I’m saying, why not have a video with a capture and whipping scene? Light bondage and/or torture? I stopped buying bc I bought anywhere between 8-10 episodes and outside of season 1 episode 7 which was heavily story driven (and their best episode in my opinion) all the episodes blend together.

New Comment:

Okay, so I watched it again and stand by my previous review. I agree with NGC stance that not all episodes will fit all tastes. But having said that I will include what I hope are constructive comments that NGC can use:

1 – Punching: Watching two people trade haymakers with nobody being knocked off their feet or being bruised or bleeding gets dull. Constructive comment: Let the heroine bleed or bruise. In Season 1 episode 2 Angel gets knocked around and bruised several times. Season2 Side Mission 2 Bluebird bleeds from a haymaker to the face. I know that’s not for everyone and it complicates shooting but it’s awesome!

Similar Constructive Comment: Knock the heroine off her feet: In Season 1 ep2, and Training Room 5 Angel gets knocked off her feet, kicked while she’s down. She is then picked up by the chin only to be knocked down again. This also happens to BlueBird in several episodes but the best example may be Training Room 4 where punches knock her off her feet and she’s picked up and held up only to be punched again.

2 – Heroine kicked while she’s down. This used to be a mainstay of the Training room videos, best example is probably Nina Hellfire vs Angel in Training Room 5. But a twist on the idea could be what was done to Erica Lynn in Season2 Episode 3 when she’s electrocuted while crawling on her belly. I appreciate it when you add bad guys doing evil things.

3 – Heroine picked up by the chin only to take more punishment. Angel and Bluebird are the clear masters of this, although Suki and Magenta have also sold this move. Celestia had a great variation of this in Season 2 Ep4 when Sabastian Lunar used her stick to display her like a trophy.

4 – Heroine takes a one sided beatdown. The last really good version of this you’ve done was Suki taking a beating for most of Season 2 Ep4 from Sebastian Lunar. She was knocked down, picked up and knocked down again. It was awesome, and I think it was what I was really hoping for from this side mission. Which is why I think my disappointment was so great in this episode. If I want to watch a heroine and a villain trade punches for a while and have nobody bleed or really even get hurt I’d watch episodes of Dark Angel, or Alias, or even Birds or Prey on Hulu. I participate and give my money to this genre loyally to see what we can’t get anywhere else, which is: THE VILLIAN WINNING AND BEATING DOWN THE HEROINE!

So, in conclusion, I hope I’ve given NGC some feedback that helps them know what I like. I really appreciate what you guys do and that you really seem to listen and care what the fans think. I know you obviously read what’s posted on this forum. I am still your biggest fan and supporter. I have purchased every single episode you’ve ever produced most of them within a few minutes of getting the email letting me know they are available. I’ve only been disappointed twice. Once with no full body shot of Angel tied up (we’ve covered that at nausea) and in THIS episode because I was expecting Erica to take a beatdown and other than the back breaker (which by the way, was great) there was never any time in the episode I felt like Erica Lynn was in danger of losing.

I will say this: The photos are awesome. Erica Lynn’s smile is sensational – Very cute indeed. The back breaker in this video would make a highlight reel of all the best stuff you’ve done over the past couple years. But other than backbreaker; this episode will lack the shelf life of some of the great ones you’ve done in the past. (as mentioned above.)

Here’s hoping a looking forward to the next release of NGC and hopefully getting a heroine beat down.

Here’s a repost of my review which I guess I put in the wrong spot:

As always with NGC, this episode is well executed. Erica Lynn is smoking hot. Lunar is spot-on. The episode does serve to continue the story. But as much as it pains me to do so, I have a hard time recommending this one. I don’t think it has any shelf life. This would be a perfect episode to watch on a streaming option. I think this is an episode that you watch once but not go back to again and again.

There’s one really sweet back-breaker, but otherwise there’s not that much that happens in this one. I have to say I was entertained while watching it, but I was rooting hard for Lunar to beat Erica senseless and that never happened. I guess the story progressed, but all we learned is that Lunar is a bad-guy… I think we already knew that.

I will say this, the best thing about this episode is the free pics that came with it. There’s one of an upcoming episode with Athena and she looks outrageously hot in the photo. And there’s a ton of pics of Ashleigh Lawrence as Erica Lynn some of which are candid and some are action shots. Ashleigh Lawrence may have the cutest smile I’ve ever seen. The snap shots of her smiling could absolutely melt the coldest heart.

The episode itself is good, but NGC has set the bar so high. They have so many episodes that I really like that this just isn’t anywhere near one of my favorites of theirs. Even though I love Ashleigh Lawrence as Erica Lynn and I will buy everything she’s in. I would be much more likely to go back and re-watch Season 2, episode 3 again and again, rather than this one.

I love the Erica costume as it is now, As example of what videos i love i think that the blue bird side mission was epic and what i love to see more are hits and reaction. I think that everybody loved the training room videos because we all known that we are going to see a fight and thats it, now the side mission have to create a context for the fight and some times thats takes a long portion of the video.Fail safe sisters works better as a short video because the context is already presented and is more similar to TR. Somes maybe are disspointed with this video but you can always choose to buy an episode, a side mission or a FSS chapter. I think that NGC is offering a lot ( with the photos also) and thats way better than have only an episode for month. And they are trying to make it all as bis as possible
And about the sexiness of the first comments for me a girl who doestn try to be sexy is sexy. The character works fine as it is for me but maybe in the future we can see another heroine who uses her appeal to try to take some advantage.

3 years 10 months ago

I suppose we could have done a face-mask. It’s a bit late now for her. Next time we shoot with a face mask I’m determined to be better prepared with the right adhesives, Catherine’s mask was very tricky to keep on her face! I’m not a fan of big fabric masks either that hide too many facial features. As for Erica’s costume – well it works in the context of the characters back-story. She was given a costume just before she went on active duty at the very start of the Elite Force project, for that reason it’s more conservative than later editions of EF heroine costumes when the whole group was meant as more of a pr stunt. That was really my thinking when designing it.

Man NGC has some of the most harshest critics. Yes, even to me they havent really “hit the nail on the head” in some of the more recent videos, the last video I remember being really pleased with like 10/10 was Side Mission 2 Bluebird vs Eliza. But that doesnt mean the rest of their stuff was garbage, as some people basically describe it as. I wasnt fully impressed but Im more than confident they will make another video that I will totally enjoy as much as SM 2 or even better.You guys cant expect every single video to be exactly what you want.

On to the costume, YES she is wearing a cape, it hid her booty when she was climbing on Luner, boo hoo.Just because of that we should bash on the costume design? Its still sexy as hell. and LOOKS like an actual superheroine costume, I doubt heroines will be like ” Hmm I dont want to wear a cape cuz then it wont show off my ass”. Costumes can be sexy but they are also supposed to be practical. This costume is PERFECT balance in that.

PS Please dont change anything with her costume, its one of the reasons I like Erica so much, But this is just a thought, Would you think she would look better with an Eye mask? Like Catherine Marks. I just feel like if anything was to be missing its that. and Thank you for lowering her belt, much better.

This comment is on the short list for stupidest entries in the history of the site. You are not a spokesman for the “fanbase” and you are in a slightly less advantageous position than NGC to determine who they are trying to cater to. Mistaking your own preferences for those of others is pathetic.

I don’t think it’s an issue about NGC being in ‘denial’ about anything. As the comments that follow almost every video from various companies on this site continue to illustrate, NGC is trying to cater to a fanbase with an enormous array of prefences and personal dislikes. Everything from costumes to the moves used to who wins to is there enough peril or the right kind of peril… and so it goes on.

As a fight fan first and foremost, obviously this particular video didn’t appeal to me… But that’s my own fault. Rather than wait for a review or two (or even watching the trailer), I picked it up as soon as the discount e-mail came through. I guess I just hoped this would be a fast-paced, fight-heavy, villian dominant video – my own personal preference, of the many that this board hosts – and I didn’t wanna spoilt it in advance! So a lesson learned there, then.

But that’s my point. This isn’t a bad video. It’s just a not a video for me.
