sorry for the break. Was out of town for a wedding
and visiting family. On the plus side I (and Omahdon)
a quick little animation! Would really like
to do more of these. Just have to get used to
animating. Still learning unfortunately :B

my, a comic! Yep, been playing GTA V when
I can. Fun game but I don't think my opinion matters
right now. As
it's sold about a billion. Great game? I dunno.
Technically it's amazing but I still prefer the
Saints Row franchise. But hey, multiplayer should
be coming online soon, so that'll be fun.
Here's some cool GTA V content to check out: Conan
has a comprehensive review on the subject,
GTA V Mythbusters episode
one and episode
two, and the
UFO conspiracy that Easter egg in GTA V.
Also I'm super stoked to see the Mighty
No.9 Kickstarter has done so well. With the
talent they have behind this, it should make for
an awesome game. Also did you see who'll be back
as starters for Pokemon X and Y? FUCK
YES. Oh and custom
wardrobe for your trainer. About freaking
AND there's a VERY cool flash game to try out.
It's called SUPERHOT.
It's got and interesting take on on bullet
time. Where time only moves when you move. Worth
a try for sure.
some other things to check out:
Beast Sisters play Persona, Aquatic
Display hack for Kinect, i
broke startrek, 50
best free PC games, Child
of Light trailer, and the trailer for
the new One Piece 3DS game.

I missed an update last week. Was on a long drive
across Canada for family stuff. Fortunately though,
a new Super Effective!
Also it looks like Nintnedo is going to be doing
animation project. It'll be following Red
and Blue from the first games. SOUNDS FAMILIAR.
I'm pretty stoked for it.

Pre Order it today!
Man this blank space over here is all blank and
awkward. Better type some stuff. Poop. Poop, crap,
Still mostly blank. Hmmm...

Super Effective! Sorry it's just a progress
strip. I've got the next one done though so a
new one next week. Ended up scrapping the last
VGC I was working on (as I tend to do). So I'll
have an E3 round up one on Monday (hopefully)
(knock on wood) (not my penis) (my tiny tiny penis)
it's been a bit since we've done a link round
up. So lets go over some of the stuff I've missed
over the past few months. Tengen
Toppa Heavy Medic, Derpcraft
: The Gap, a
really awesome Cave Johnson impression (source),
most boobie filled (bad) game ever, Pokeball
plays itself (Playfun AI), some
mad pro MGS3 gameplay, Super
Monster Bros Adventure time Pocket, Watch
Dogs continues to look awesome, GentleBot
Hell (TF2), Links
Juice Minecraft Roller Coaster, a
poem for FTL (by yahtzee), and Wario
does a thing.

swear I'm not dead. Just been a bit busy. As well
I've been on some anxiety meds that have taken
a bit to adjust. Side affect being WAY too sleepy
all the time. Compounded with a very active toddler
put me out of commish for drawin.
Good now though. Should have a comic up for you
on Monday. Cheers!
Edit: DERP! I am a big fat liar. Also stuff came
up. Still working though! Might get some filler
up if I have a chance.

| Posted a comic a few days ago. I'm too much of a pussy to play Slender more than once. However I do think everyone should play it AT LEAST once. Sorry in advance if you crap yourself. The game is free and available over here. More on how to play it over here in this wonderful video (that you really need to watch until the end).
Oh my, lots of stuff this past month to go over.
Been meaning to talk about Telltale's Walking Dead for a while now. This game is easily Telltale's best title to date.
It's choose your own adventure, well, to the extent you choose how you act and others perceive you. Plot still moves forward with changes here and there. One of the neat features is at the end of an episode it'll show how your choices affect "On the next episode of Walking Dead." Little touches like that make me absolutely love it.
The only minor gripes I have with it are the lack of a skip dialogue button and inverted mouse. Again though, these are minor when you've got so much that's good. Highly recommend picking it up.
In TF2 news; After a lot of speculation Mann vs Machine finally released this week. As you can see here by this lovely introductory video and comic. Haven't gotten to play it myself but it's a horde mode, hard to fuck that up.
However I think the best update to come out of TF2 this year is the Source Film Maker. The tool they've been using to make such gems as Meet the Pyro. Here are a few good videos to check out: Updated Meet the Heavy, THE BUTTON, Matrix helicopter scene remade, Goof Troop Boop, Those aren't Pillows, Practical Prolems, (NSFW>)Meat the Soldier(<NSFW) and WEEOEEWEOWEO.

Had a couple of new Super Effectives go up in the past few weeks. As well as one today! Actually, I haven't missed an update since may. Neat!
Sorry for the short news posts. Not very easy to get these together when I'm away from my workstation (or making VGC Comics for that matter). I'll be back home for good Thursday. Sorry again!
||Wednesday, April 25, 2012 3:07 AM
Should probably get one of these things up (that's what she said). Put up a new comic last week and we've got a new comic this week. Both Mass Effect related!
As much as EA is an albatross for this series I do love Mass Effect. Playing through ME3 right now and for the most part positive. Keeping multiplayer "Galactic Readiness" is a bit tedious (OCD demands 100%!) but it's enjoyable. I hate losing war assets due to not having bought some DLC, and having some choices REALLY matter while others don't is annoying. BUT. I love the characters, the writing, and the combat is tight. About half way through so I haven't gotten to the infamous bad ending yet. Maybe if I take long enough they'll have a new ending out before I complete it.
One thing I miss that I removed from the site is the featured comic. What I planned on doing instead is talking about it in a news post. THEN I NEVER DID. EVER. Lets fix that. The first round are a few shows I love watching while I get comics done. Basically all the guys over at Normal Boots. Continue and JonTron being my personal favorites. All different takes on reviewing new and old games, all highly entertaining. If you've got some time to kill do check them out.
Also; Dear Nintendo, make this happen:

New Comic! On a Monday?! AGAIN?! Someone call hell and see if they've frozen over. Then Gabe to see if Half-life episode 3 is out. Then hell again to see if it exits. I sure hope it doesn't.
Gonna try and get a Super Effective out finally this week, HERE'S HOPING! ( It's not a funny one so don't actually get your hopes up! ) ( Sorry! :( )

Put up a new comic a few days ago. Was drawing this before the Mass Effect 3 demo came out so I messed up on the Krogan female a bit. SPEAKING OF WHICH. The Mass Effect 3 demo is out on Xbox, PS3, and PC and it's quite fun. The demo
covers two single player levels and some basic online multiplayer.
For the single player nothing really changed from the last game, it's just been added to. We've got a new melee feature which is a welcome addition. As well you can check out the tweeked engineer class. Fighting using turrets and drones is great when you're a shitty shot like me. The two single player levels are the intro and
rescue mission with your old teammates from the previous games (if they're still alive). Not too long, not too short, and gives you a nice feel for the game.
The multiplayer was surprisingly fun. When I first heard about it I was skeptical but it's won me over. The mode we have in the demo is a co-op horde mode with occasional objectives. I don't think I'll be straying far from this when the game comes out. I just can't do competitive these days. In all I can't wait to play the full game
Oh hey, DID SOMEONE SAY NEW VGCATS AWNN?!
Also its been a while since we've had some neat links to check out up in here. SO HERE YOU GO. New One Piece Pirate Warriors 4 minute video, SHED.MOV, Skyrim and Spaaaaaaaace, TF2 goes French(Flight of the Concords), Link to the AWesome, and an older video but still quite amazing; This is Aperture.
Lastly Super Effective is coming. Just finding time to work on it. D:

Did someone say new comic? YUUUUUP.
I really can't wait until the newborn phase gets a regular sleep pattern. Got time to work on these in between shifts so each of us can sleep. Little hour to two hour spurts days apart. ALAS, first world problems.
Omahdon's got a new audio adaptation. I love this way more than I should. I'm not saying erection but there's a tingle.
I really do need to spend some time and play games though. If he's passed out on me I'll play some Saints Row 3 just because it's so easy to get into and stop. Far from a deep game but that's honestly not a bad thing. It's nice to have an over the top, arcade, fun for all to play if that's all you've got time for. Would I say buy it? Yeah sure, it's short but it's quite fun.
Quite a few games I have but haven't really touched yet. Dark Souls, Dynasty Gundam 3, Skyward Sword. I made the mistake of registering Knights of the Old Republic. That free month went by without so much as a force push.
One game I'm REALLY looking forward to and hope it sees a North America launch is A Dynasty Warriors One Piece game. The first trailer is here, the second one (and MUCH better) is here.
From what I've read and seen it'll be covering all the events from the first chapter to New World. As well ALL the current crew will be playable. One Piece works so well in a Dynasty Warriors format it's criminal. It's had a few games on Wii that were flashy to watch but pretty boring to play. This new one for PS3 looks like a welcome turn around. It just better have Big Emperor.
That's enough of me ranting. Also don't forget books!

Holy carp and trout! I haven't made a news post in a while. Had a new comic up before christmas and then promptly got very busy being a new dad! It's just been a mad house of poop and urine ever since. Oh and the sleep deprivation. OH THE SLEEP DEPRIVATION. You always hear it's a bit of a life changer but it never really sinks in until it happens. Still, couldn't be happier.
Also, we've got a new VGC Animated! (Great jerb!)
Had the site blacked out (like there was a difference lolol) in opposition to SOPA/PIPA the other day. Bills like this are nothing new and we will continue seeing them in the future. It is however important to address them in all cases. Especially this one as it's particularly nasty.
I think my biggest problem with this bill is it'll ultimately boil down to more censorship. Just yesterday we saw MegaUpload (video, etc..) got shut down. They already have the means to go after people. SOPA/PIPA is giving more power to a system that already has too much.
So if you have a moment I do ask you to write in and voice your opposition. On a gaming note there's a SOPA related E3 boycot a brewing which is worth a gander.

Workin' on a comic. For now here are some great videos to check out!
Oh, and don't forget the books!
||Friday, November 25, 2011 12:00 AM
New Super Effective!? It seems like months! Probably because it has been. I tell ya, this past little while has been just exhausting. I'll get to recent events in a bit. Right now I've got some really exciting news. We've got books!!! That's three exclimation points. You know this shit just got real.
At long last I'm putting out my first two books. They're avalible for preorder (shipping on Dec 6th) at the moment but, I highly suggest
gettig it now if you want it in time for Christmas. First come first serve so to speak.
As you can see we have both paperback and hardcover for VG Cats.
The hardcover will be a one time printing. So once it's gone it's gone for good. Super Effective didn't make sense for a hardcover so it'll just be paperback.
Believe me though, these books look faaaantastic. I just got my advance copies the other day and I am SO happy with how they turned out. It's great to see Super Effective in large high-res glory. VG Cats is packed full of comics in a really nice manga travel-style size. Both books are printed on slick and glossy paper that gives me the weirdest boner. There's nothing I'd change.
Now on to the past month or so.
Cat almost died. Got pretty sick and is doing better now but for a while it was pretty iffy. During that the basement flooded. Did I mention my computer was down there? The one I use to make comics. After cleaning up that mess the plumbers tore the place up to fix the problem. Dust, mud, and sludge everywhere. I'm STILL cleaning it up. In the process I became asthmatic. I've always been allergic to dust and mold but this recent incident pushed me over. For a good week I was having SERIOUS problems breathing. Got a puffer, doing WAY better. So, I am sorry there haven't been comics. It's a matter of not having time, not playing games, and just mentally not there for making with the funny.
As well the medical bills for our cat have been a bit extreme. I've been doing commissions when I can to help pay down the costs. I'll probably put a call out on here when I have time to take more on. For now I just wanted to let you know I hadn't forgotten about the comics and you. This whole year has just been a bit hellish (funerals, car accident, hospitals) and I'm trying the best I can.
So thank you for bearing with me.
