Oh hey, I should probably do a newspost. Had a new comic go up last week and a new Super Effective up today! Horraaaaay~

Old news now but I do like the new Sonic designs (trailer for the Show and Game ... Wub wub). Let it be said that I've never been a big fan of Sonic, and the direction they've been going in over the past decade has been ... questionable. You've got a series up its butt in story which is very confusing for anyone new to get into. So a reboot to get new fans into it should be seen as a good thing.

Of course I couldn't help but notice the similarities between them and the Ninja Turtles reboot. Not just with the bandages but, their tropes are a bit familiar. Anyway though I hope this keeps the franchise going.


An adorable animation called Moses Supposes, Biofeedback horror game that gets worse the more scared you are, Super Mario 500 point run... just holy shit, FFFFFFF (VVVV + Flappy Bird), EPILEPSY WARNING> A cool japanese pixel art music video <EPILEPSY WARNING, and of course LITTLE MAC IN SMASH BROS.

New VG Cats and new Super effective!

Hey remember that game you guys help Kickstart a while back? Detective Grimoire! Well it's up for Greenlight on steam. So if you've got a sec a vote would be very appreciated. Much thanks. Wow.

Also I just want to take a moment to mention of absolutely awesome Wonderful 101 is. Picked it a few days ago and am thoroughly enjoying it. It's got that Viewtiful Joe feel to it's humor and artstyle, and well, simply fun to play.

It's just such a shame the WiiU is doing so poorly at the moment. It's mostly Nintendos fault unfortunately. Poor marketing, poor name choice, lack of software a YEAR later. I mean at least fill that eShop with some older titles. At least the DS is coming soon.

Everyone seems to think going mobile is the way to Nintendo's salvation. Myself included for a while. It's a short sighted plan though. This article goes though a lot of reasons why. Nintendo DOES need to look into its pricing structure and take advantage of what it has in place. It's a great system I'd hate to see die and would hope it does better this year.

Now what time is it? LINK ROUND UP TIME. Here's some stuff to check out:
J-Stars VS Victory Trailer, Guy hunts down a Day Z streamer, Super Smash on Titan, and to a lesser extent, but still awesome. Attack on Subaru.

Friday, January 10, 2014 9:39 AM
New Super Effective! Yep!

Few things to check out. First aneat Game/Tech demo based on moving object to create a forced perpective. Very worth a try or just a watch. Hope to see it fleshed out into a full game. Museum Of Simulation Technology.

And a few vids "Xbox Sign Out" trolling, How to get shot playing Rust (warning loud), Videogame locations collage, and Call of Duty: Ghosties.

New comic? YOU BETTER BELEEB IT BUSTER. I'll get back to the viya hopefully... And Super Effective. I know! I know! Sorry!

In the mean time we have five, FIVE new VG Cats AWNNs!

#295 Videogames, Am I Right? + #306 They Are A-Changin'
#311 Dress Rehearsal
#294 They'll Fix You. They Fix Everything.
#183 Gin City

Now here's some other cool shit to check out. Pokemon The Next NEXT Generation, Luigi's Ballad by Starbomb, Trevor In Real Life, BUTTFACE McFARTSALOT, Dodge Adventure, Malfunctioning Eddie(SFM), and The Turntable Turnabout.

Monday, December 9, 2013 7:40 AM
This comic was supposed to go up last week. So its a bit dated. Apologies! Enjoy! (now to work on Super Effective ;p)

Edit: Who didn't see this coming.

Thursday, November 28, 2013 12:09 PM

We've got a bunch of new shirts and lots of old favorites! Check it out brahs and brahlettes!

Monday, November 25, 2013 1:16 PM
Two new AWNN? YEP!

Wednesday, November 6, 2013 3:23 AM
Got a very funny guest comic from Cal Moray! She doesn't have a site to link to but she DOES have a store at Shark Robot full of AWESOME shirts.

Check them out here!

Also some cool links to check out. The Best BF3 Player Ever, Poké-King-of-the-Mon-Hill, and Obama's Terrible Secret.

Monday, October 28, 2013 6:49 AM
Whoops, sorry for the break. Was out of town for a wedding (these two) and visiting family. On the plus side I (and Omahdon) made a quick little animation! Would really like to do more of these. Just have to get used to animating. Still learning unfortunately :B

Monday, September 30, 2013 1:47 AM
Oh 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 time.

And 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.

Here's some other things to check out:

Two 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.

Monday, August 19, 2013 4:19 AM
Sorry I missed an update last week. Was on a long drive across Canada for family stuff. Fortunately though, here's a new Super Effective!

Also it looks like Nintnedo is going to be doing a special animation project. It'll be following Red and Blue from the first games. SOUNDS FAMILIAR. I'm pretty stoked for it.

Monday, August 5, 2013 9:57 PM
Like Attack on Titan? Shark Robot has a new shirt! Pre Order it today!

Man this blank space over here is all blank and awkward. Better type some stuff. Poop. Poop, crap, poop.

Still mostly blank. Hmmm...

Taking a break this week from videogames to highlight an anime I simply adore. Attack on Titan. It's about a world where humans fight giant humanoids called titans. Very faced paced action and addicting storyline. You can check out epodes here on Funamations website or all the newest ones here on crunchyroll (subscription required which sucks but oh well).

It's also got one of the most catchy intros ever.

And incase you missed when I posted it the first time. Here's a fun little AoT web game.

Monday, July 29, 2013 3:46 PM
Wasn't able to get a new VG Cats done for today. HOWEVER! Here's a new Super Effective! :D

Monday, July 22, 2013 1:46 AM
New Super Effective! I'll try to get a new VGC out this week too.

Wednesday, July 10, 2013 1:39 PM
The Looking For Group guys have a Kickstarter going for their upcoming game. Fun little co-op dungeon crawler. And they've been awesome enough to include Leo as one of the unlockable companion when you pledge $60 or more! You can check out the trailer here and the Kickstarter page here.

Also the GTA5 Gameplay trailer is fucking awesome.

Monday, July 8, 2013 7:38 AM
Had a new Super Effective go up last week. And we've got a new VG Cats today! This seems the best way to approach the new Super Mario Word 3D. Then again maybe not...

ANYWAY! I'll be doing a convention this weekend, ConnectiCon in Hartford CT. Done it more than a few times now and its always a lot of fun. IProbably why it's the only convention I'll be doing this year. Should have a panel to check out and books (and some shirts) for your buying pleasure. Or just come say hi!

LINK TIME! Get Lucky with K.K. Slider, Attack on Titan flash game, Conan Visits E3, My Little Gurren Lagann, and of course.... Mount Your Friends.

Saturday, June 22, 2013 6:13 AM
Penny Arcade beat me to the punch on this one, but hey it happens. New VG Cats! New Super Effective on Monday.

Saturday, June 15, 2013 5:12 AM
New 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) (TMI).

Now 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), the most boobie filled (bad) game ever, Pokeball Z, Mario 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 Shadow, Beetle Juice Minecraft Roller Coaster, a poem for FTL (by yahtzee), and Wario does a thing.

Monday, May 20, 2013 6:08 AM
Yep, new comic. Time to start work on the next one!

Saturday, March 9, 2013 4:54 PM
I 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.

Sunday, December 23, 2012 1:57 AM
Fogot to mention we had a Super Effective go up last week. Working on two comics for monday. One of them will go up depending on how much time I'll have. What with Christmas in a day ot two. BUT ONE WILL GO UP OR MY NAME ISN'T P. T. BARNUM.

Have some links. South Park Stick of Truth VGA Trailer, Phantom Pain (aka Metal Gear Solid 5 teaser), Dikembe Mutombo's 4 1/2 Weeks to Save the World, Two Best Sisters Play - Resident Evil 4, and NINTENDO SIXTY-FOUR!!!

Edit: And it's up. Ended up going with the shorter one.

Friday, November 23, 2012 7:15 AM
Had a new comic go up a few days ago. As well a new Super Effective today! Also Shark Robot has some sales going up today and through the weekend. Which means we've got some sales!

Again, "happyholidays" will get you 5% off everything. As well if you spend $60 or more the shipping is FREE. We've also got a few shirts going on clearance for $9.95 (at the bottom of the page). DEALS GALORE.

How about some long overdue links? Seems like months since I've put them in a news post, so here's a bunch of them!

Pokémon Spread, Bad Neighborhood in Skyrim, Skate 3 may have some bugs, Artist draws Pokémon from memory,MY BRAND, Halo 4 ruined forever, Meet the Dumpster Diver, WHUR MUH BOATS AT, Ohio State does Videogames, and I know I'm a bit late on this but BioShock Infinite looks amazing.

Not done yet. Game Grumps is a fantastic lets play by Egoraptor and Jontron. Here are a few animated versions I love. Don't Listen to Protoman, Animal Crossing, Spaget, Hello Banjo, Godzilla Rap, and Kirby in Grumpland.

Wednesday, October 3, 2012 9:10 PM
Had a new VGC go up last week. So G4 is dead. Looking back G4 has been on this slow death. Although, even when it was good it was bad. Sessler leaving was a big, "Oh shit, it's going down." moment. I really don't care either way, it's been quite a while since I've watched ANY television.

And yes, that's FTL he's playing. A surprisingly addicting indie game you can pick up for cheap. You're a ship trying to make it through space with the Rebel fleet hot on your tail. All the while you manage upgrades, crew, and fight in real time combat. This video is a pretty good run through of what to expect from the game. Personally, I love it and if you love Sci-Fi I think you will too.

Wednesday, Sep 12, 2012 5:18 AM
Got a New Super Effective up on Sunday and a new VG Cats up today. AND and we've got a new VG Cats AWNN! With a promo for Dust: An Elysian Tail (of which they do all the voices) at the end. Trailer over here.

Still need to play it myself but, it's funny though. I downloded it before I found out the AWNN crew did the voices. Just becuse it looks so good. Reminded me of Muramasa which is very good thing.

Also a friend of mine is trying to get his game greenlit, Love+. You can check it out here.

Friday, August 17, 2012 3:43 AM
Okay, that Mists of Pandaria WoW trailer was pretty damn good. I'll never play the game but hey, creidt where credit is due.

Also Castle Crashers Coming to Steam. Yaaaaaay!

Thursday, August 16, 2012 9:40 AM
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.

Monday, July 16, 2012 6:08 AM
New adaptation with no name? I think so!

That accent really makes it for me. Speaking of the voice talent the man behind these adaptations needs your assistance. He's helping the Super Flash Brothers with some voice work on a new adventure game for Android and iOS devices (iphone, iPad, etc...), Detective Grimoire. You can check out their kick starter right over here.

Tuesday, July 10, 2012 3:21 PM
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!

Tuesday, June 19, 2012 0:38 AM

Friday, June 15, 2012 2:37 PM
WOO! Been a while since we had some new merch in the store. So here are two new shirts!
Pikawang Fucking Metal.
Hope you like them :D

Friday, June 5, 2012 12:51 PM
Put up a new (quick) VG Cats comic this week and a new Super Effective today. So how about that E3?

Every year I wonder why we still even have an E3. Most of what was there, while very good (and very funny), was already known. What wasn't known was just... Eh. With the exception being Watch Dogs. I think I'm just glad I didn't go. PAX seems to be a much more worthwhile time these days.

Oh right, there was also this little gem. (notably right here)

Tuesday, May 29, 2012 2:56 PM
Oh shit, new Super Effective! I warned you it wasn't funny but it's needed.

Monday, May 21, 2012 1:39 AM
New Comic! Was supposed to go up last week but my computer kinda stop turning on. I feel like it's an old car that I really can't let go but, I keep repairing it. Just another few miles until it breaks again.

Now lets post some long over due links;

- "Wrath" (A very cool Diablo 3 animation)
- Gamer Poop: Mass Effect 3 (we'll bang okay?)
- I'm Garrus Vakarian and this is my favorite sketch on the internet.
- If I Were a Core (and the making of it I found even better)
- Two Best Sisters Play Portal 2 (MLP)
- Did You Know Gaming? (Fast becoming my favorite tumblr site)
- Trailer for the new Batman Arkham City DLC

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:

Saturday , March 25, 2012 6:50 PM

Whoops! Almost forgot to do a newpost this week. Had another comic up this past Monday. That's three Mondays in a row! Will I make it four? Probably not! Scrapped one I was working on and haven't had much time to devote to drawing this week. So we'll see.

Anyway, I was going to talk about Mass Effect 3 and it's issues with their DLC and ending. As well their lack of response regarding it but, as of Wednesday we have a response. Granted this is only about the ending and doesn't address anything else but hey, it's something. This is a bit silly though.

Now on a personal note (two personal notes). Friend of mine Mike Moore (and Caldwell) is working on agame, Prof. Cat's Mazing Machine, and he's got a kickstarter going over here. Lots of different tiers for contribution. So if puzzle games interest you, check it out. As well I did the forward to Fred's book Sure to be Ban'd Year One. It's a first year compilation of his comic over here.

Monday, March 12, 2012 5:26 AM

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! :( )

Saturday, March 3, 2012 1:14 AM

New Comic! Started working on it just after the last one... two weeks agoish? Wish I'd gotten it out a bit sooner (as to be a bit more relevant) but I'm happy with how it turned out.

So about The Tester, I guess it's in it's third season now which is a shock to me. Available exclusive to PSN. Because you know, everyone is dying to licence this stellar program. Egoraptor is really the only reason to watch any of it but even he can't save this train wreck. Truth be told I only skimmed through an episode. I don't think I could make it through the whole thing. This show is a fucking endurance match. It's like you've had the 5 alarm chili, and you're gripped on the edge of the toilet just WAITING for death's sweet release.

TLDR? Go watch Egoraptor's cartoons instead.

However if you want to check out the first episode of The Teaster season 3 you can do so here (and the part about the comic here). Also here's Pinkie Pie as Navi.

Tuesday, February 21, 2012 7:53 AM

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


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:

Tuseday, January 24, 2012 11:58 PM

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!

Friday, January 20, 2012 1:12 AM

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!)

(Newgrounds Link)

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.

Thursday, December 8, 2011 7:11 PM

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.

Thursday, June 23, 2011 10:21 PM

Holy moly it's been a while since I did a news post. Lost of stuff to cover over the past month. So lets get started. First is E3. Did a comic for it about a week back expressing my opinion. If you missed the goings on here's a pretty good recap.

Sony put out an alright conference, Microsoft was abysmal, and this guy at Ubi... I've never seen anything so awkward. He made for a good remix though. Nintendo's WiiU really stole the show. The specs are over here if you haven't read about them yet. I'm pumped! Two other note worthy games I'm excited for are Zelda Skyward Sword and Star Wars The Old Republic.

Another thing I wanted to talk about is LA Noire.

Didn't really live up to my expectations but I did enjoy it but, not really as a game. You very much feel like you're placed in a gritty crime drama. The writing and acting really help bring the experience to life. My main problem with the game is that I could probably get the same feeling from just watching a video walkthough. Too much of it is hand holding. Events, choices, and interview results just don't have any impact on the overall story.

I would normally say rental but, this is a LONG game. If a fun story is something that interests you than by all means pick it up. It is a decent buy in that respect. Just don't expect the same type of game as Grand Theft Auto.

Now on to DOOK NOOKEM. I think Notch said it best in his review. Avoid this game at all cost. The wait was NOT worth it.


I'll have some new Super Effectives up shortly. I want to get a few strips done so this next boring bit of the story goes by quickly with regular updates. I've got the first two done. Just working on the third. Stay tuned!

Wednesday, May 18, 2011 1:33 PM

Oh Brentalfloss, you speak to my soul, bro. MY SOUL, BRO.

Also we've got quite a few animated version of the comics to check out. The first three are by MikeandTrey over at NewGrounds. Episode one(Number one), two(Ew..), and three (Skittles). As well an voiced version of Early Bird Special. Can't tell you ho much I love to see these. Awesome work!

Saturday, April 30, 2011 1:14 AM

Well that was quick. Someone already did an audio version of the comic. Great job guys.

Now on to Portal 2, loved it. An improvement on the first in just about every way. It's MUCH longer, new puzzles involving gels, brand new co-op feature, and spectacular writing. I don't think I've ever laughed so much at anything in quite a while as I did with this. Steven Merchant and J.K. Simmons were a treat to listen to the whole way through.

Verdict? BUY. THIS. GAME. You won't regret it. Though you might want to give the first a rent (It's relatively short) if you haven't already. Here are a few fun Portal links to check out: "Man Made" Mad Men parody, Left 4 Dead meets Portal 2, SPAAAACE,and a rather awesome Portal 2 promo.

Also we've got a new shirt! Combustible Lemons.

Wednesday, April 27, 2011 3:12 PM

TLDR; Sony fucked up... BIG time. I honestly can't be live they'd do something that stupid but, there it is. I liked it better when it was just an outage.

I'll have more of a newspost tomorrow. Just wanted to get this comic up while it was relevant and forgot to sleep in the process. Nap time.

Monday, April 18, 2011 5:22 PM

If you don't watch the new My Little Pony series, you really should. The show is by the same people behind Power Puff Girls and Fosters, so if you enjoy those I'm pretty sure you'll enjoy this. Equestria Daily is a good place to start.

Anyway link time... with a TWEEST. Here are some awesome pony links to check out. Pocahontas meets MLP, a really nice piano medley, Real Ponies, and Real Bronies of Genious, Then of course there's the TON of remixes available. Enjoy!

Thursday, March 31, 2011 16:49

Put up a new VGC the other day. I just generally don't get systems on launch day anymore. Combination of not much to play on said system at the time, knowing the price will drop or a new version will release, and SO many other games I should be playing. Not that I don't love this system of course

Couple of free games (and one not free) to check out. The first is a game I've been meaning to post for ages, Icarus Proudbottom in: The Curse of the Chocolate Fountain. Fly through the air on a trail of shit guided by your spirit animal. Another is GRIP which comes from the maker of the infamous QWOP. Next you should get before Nintendo pulls it from the internet, Fan-made Zelda Link's Awakening remake.

Finally a game that a friend of mine has been working on, CreaVures. You can check out the trailer for it over here. It's $10 on Steam and the Mac App Store.

Now per usual, here are a few good videos to check out. Gnome Chompski: The Game, The voice of Halo, and Pokemon Crystal in Vietnamese.

Saturday, March 26, 2011 7:25 AM

New Super Effective. That show had one of the most catchy theme songs ever and, will very easily get stuck in your head.

. Also after reception from this I drew this just for fun.

Thursday, March 17, 2011 7:50 AM

Been updating Super Effective regularly for the past month or so now. Not always a news update though. Been out of town on family matters for a bit. So we've got a new one here, here, and here!

I'm glad most of Super Effective is pre-scripted. Hadn't really been ina comic making mood. Went for a bout a week with quite literally no sleep. I remember coming back home and sleeping/crashing for a while, and then waking up to the realization, "Huh. I guess I haven't had a dream all week. That's probably super bad." Been just catching up on sleep and drawing SE since. </whining>

Anyway though, I'm feeling better. Will try and work on a VGC this week. For now I do encourage you to give to relief efforts over in Japan. Google's got a page up with all the pertinent info.

Wednesday, February 23, 2011 7:04 AM

New Super Effective! Really meant to be seen in two parts but I'll just save that for next week I guess. Check back then! Later!

Edit (Wednesday, March 2, 2011 11:48 AM): Oh hey, it's next week! New Super Effective.

Few videos to check out: GTA IV Carmageddon gone Yakety, Augmented reality on the 3DS, Girls GIRLS GIRLS.

Tuesday, February 1, 2011 5:42 PM

New Super Effective! Also, we've got a brand new VGCats Adaptation from Omahdon and crew!

A few other videos to check out: A brand new AWESOME video from Egoraptor, "Awesome Chaotix". Never played the game myself but I love it for the animation alone. Now, open that door and get on the floor because it's time TO WALK THE DINOSUAR. Lastly if you're in Winnipeg, get some cats!

Monday, January 24, 2011 2:01 AM

New Comic? Yep!

Valve is one of the smartest companies ever. Seriously. To arrange a treasure hunt in which you collect achievements from games you'd buy on daily steam sales. Then to require you to create a wishlist of at least 10 games you'd want to win as rewards for collecting those achievements. THEN to have a massive holiday sale that lets you know what games on your friend's newly created wishlist are on sale. Just wow.

You have to love the diabolicalness (and massive sales) of it all. Buying TF2 items is still bullshit though. Ah well. Have some Duke!

Tuesday, January 11, 2011 4:57 PM

Just a reminder I'll be at Magfest this weekend. HIGHLY recomend if you enjoy videogame bands.

The list of performers this year include The Protomen, Minibosses, Year 200X, The OneUps, The Megas, Armcannon, This Place Is Haunted, Metroid Metal, Bit Brigade The X Hunters, Rare Candy, Entertainment System, and brentalfloss.

This list makes up a good 90% of my ipod (thre rest being weeaboo). Can't Wait!

Gonna try and get a comic up before I head out on Wednesday. 20 Paneler, just taking a bit. :O

Wednesday, December 8, 2010 7:32 PM

Been a while since I've made a news post. So here goes! First there's this...

The voice of Marty is just spot on. I can't tell you how much I'm looking forward to this game.
As well the teaser for Batman : Arkham City just hit. Not a whole lot of information about the game in this one but, it looks pretty.

For now there are two free games to check out and kill some time. First is an indie game called Octodad(trailer here). Basically you're an octopus trying to pass as a human. It's got an interesting control scheme and definitely worth a look. The other game is one of the most depressing games I've ever played in my life, One Chance. Like Kongregate's game, You Only Live Once, you've only got one shot to play it through. (That is of course if you don't know about this!)

DEPPRESED YET? Well lets fix that with some funny links. First is Black Friday's Target stampede doubled with the L4D Tank music. Then this this oldie but a goodie, Super Mario Frustration. Up next, Minecraft Pals.

Lastly here's a few awesome AWESOME videos; Ryu Then and Now, Dudley Orders Fast Food, Blanka Makes Pound Cake, and of course the inevitable remix of Pound Cake.

Tuesday, November 30, 2010 10:47 PM

Put up a new comic yesterday. Just to clarify, I do actually love both DS9 and TNG (and Voyager). I just like writing comics where it's the two of them talking. Simple as that. I wouldn't read too much into it.

Also did you know yesterday was Cyber Monday? Nope? Me either! So instead we've got a 5% off sale running the whole week at the store. Just use cupon code "want2cyber" As well we've got some new shirts! Broseidon God of the Brocean and MissingNo! We've also got some of the older designs on hoodies. Bitch be Trippin' Balls, Bloody Lies, and the very popular glow in the dark Boo.

Just a note. The Glow in the dark Boos have been extended until December but, after that they'll be gone.

Thursday, November 11, 2010 10:52 PM

Bleh, bad week. Gonna try and get a new VGC up as soon as I can. For now, New Super Effective!

Also Rockstar's new game "L.A. Noire" is looking pretty awesome. Of course this is all cutscenes (which are spectacularly animated) but damn, I'm a sucker for detective stories. Shut up and take my money.

Thursday, November 4, 2010 5:57 PM

Just when I'm getting into updating again.... BAM. Flu. Really laid me out on my ass for a bit. I honestly haven't felt so bad since I was in 6th grade. Colds come and go but this was like some kind of darkspawn.

ANYWAY... New Super Effective! Cheers!

Wednesday, October 20, 2010 1:51 AM

New Super Effective and a guest comic from Geist Panik!

Also a few quick videos. Rapture in Minecraft, the best thing to put in a PS3 ever, and Professor Layton vs Phoenix Wright game for the 3DS. Oh yes. Someone's been reading my fanfics.

Lastly we've got two old shirts with a new twist.

First is a bit of a Halloween treat. Sometimes I'll specifically design a shirt just so I can wear them. This is one of those times.

Our Boo shirts now glow in the dark. How freaking cool is that?! Only doing a limited run on these though so urge you to get 'em while you can!

The other shirt went out of production a while ago but we're brining it back. It's a Rat Flail! Get them both at the store over here.

Monday, October 18, 2010 8:45 AM

New comic! So Dead Rising 2 is pretty damn great. I don't often get to the story but, just fucking around by yourself or someone else is just a lot of fun. The DLC (Case Zero) is also a very good buy and I'm sure the upcoming DLC (Case West) will be too. I wouldn't go so far as to buy this collectors edition though. However this jacket is fucking awesome.

Speaking of Zombies the new L4D2 DLC, The Sacrifice, is out (and comic). I must say it's FAR better than the last DLC, The Passing. Maybe it's just the fact that you're playing with the old team. I dunno, have some K-ON L4D.

Also here's a free game to kill some time on. Realm of the Mad God, a web-based top down action RPG. That is if you can't play one of the MANY games out right now. Two notables releasing later this month; Fable 3 and Fallout New Vegas.

Check back Wednesday for a new Super Effective (finally).

Thursday, October 7, 2010 7:09 AM

Ever say you'll make a news post but, instead you try and finish a comic before you have to pack up your computer in a box? No? Well that happened. Tried to get a comic done for Monday before I moved. DID NOT WORK. Ah well. Finally had a chance to finish it tonight. Enjoy!

I couldn't even post these two awesome guest comics from Allan Comic and Mystic Revolution (respectivly)

Thanks guys!

Few quick things to check out. First is this Bizarre series called Usavich by MTV Japan. These "music" bits are my personal favorites. Of course I'm the last to mention it but it's a must, Pokémon Apokélypse. Finally an oldie but a goodie; Genghis Khan plays Facade.


Monday, September 27, 2010 4:31 AM

New Comic, not too happy with it but it's there. Actual news post tomorrow after I get some sleep. This one took a while.

Monday, August 23, 2010 9:21 AM

Oh shit, another Super Effective. Gonna set aside some time this week to get a new VGCats done as well. Just building up a nice buffer with Super Effective strips.

Not too much to check out around the old web but here's a few musical links. Still Alive slowed down 800%, Video Game Songs With Lyrics, Engy gets down with his turret (tons of other awesome videos on his page), and Beat it done to TF2.

Also I had a chance to pick up the Vocaloid game (Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA) while I was doing conventions.

Fun game and a thinly veiled excuse for me to share with you some Miku music. Tripple Baka, Love is war, I'm ALIVE!, Last Night Good Night, PoPiPo, and I'd post more but if you enjoy these then I'd highly recommend picking up one of their CDs. These two (Memories, Impacts) are my personal favorites.

Monday, August 16, 2010 8:10 AM

New Super Effective! Also a few quick things worth checking out.

First is the brand new Bio Shock Infinite trailer. THIS is what Bioshock 2 should have been. Can't wait. Second, think you can't make a 2D side scroller out of Starcraft 2? Guess again! A Metal Slug map for Starcraft. Lastly a neat little name that videogame quiz, Geek Mind. The dictionary for accepted names is a little wonky but, still fun.

Friday, July 29, 2010 12:28 PM

It's finally out, Starcraft 2. Been waiting to play this for a good decade now. I guess I can wait one weekend more. Letcha know what I think of it after that.

Speaking of which I'll be down at Otakon this weekend in Baltimore Maryland. You can find me in the dealers room at booth #706. Won't know until I'm down there if I'm on their live cam or not. Also sorry about the break, took some personal time off. For now though there's a new Super Effective. :)

On a final note I'm actually looking forward to DC Universe Online. Everything I've been reading so far looks like it might be an MMO I can actually enjoy. Plus the new trailer is just tits.

Thursday, July 08, 2010 4:28 PM

Driving down to Hartford for ConnectiCon this weekend. Two things before I do. New comic! As well you really do need to check out the Engie Update (and the secret update). They've got a fantastic comic detailing the battle behind Red vs Blue. Only Valve could add a story to TF2, well done.

Friday, July 02, 2010 7:02 AM

Gonna be down at AX2010 in LA this weekend aswell with; Snafu, Mystic Revolution, FlipSide, Halolz, and Yu-gi-oh: The Abridged. We're all in a row at the back just accross from artist alley. So come on down and say hi!

Friday, June 25, 2010 8:43 AM

Quite possible one of the most visually pleasing episodes of Red vs Blue ever. You might recognize the animation from good ol' montyoum of Haloid fame. I do love his work so. (Courtesy of Halolz)

Few other quick things to check out:

Transformice! (alternate link) All is explained about this game by this (funny) video here. Basically you play as a giant team of mice that have to work together in order to get cheese. Your foe? The human condition.

As well a time killing flash game, Total Jerkface. Navigate levels without being gored or create your own. Ever want to play Zelda II in first person mode? Well here you go! Oh hey a Bayonetta mod for Oblivion. Lastly a trailer for an absolutely bizarre looking game called "Privates".

Wednesday, June 23, 2010 5:43 PM

Working on this one on and off since before E3. Inspired by this video from Microsoft. Short and fast of it is that I really don't see Natal being a big of a success the same way Wii was. Not that they're not going to try with this release list. I just don't see why if you already HAVE Wii Sports why on earth you'd buy it again.

Not even to mention the technical problems that might occur. I exagerate for comedy sake but, there's probably a reason the majority of waht you saw at E3 was prerecorded and not a live demo.

However the heart of it really is Kinect seriously lacking in the software department. At least with Move for PS3 they've got support for REAL games in addition to the shovelware. Feels weird praising Playstation 3 but, it's deserved. We'll see I guess.

Ah well, time to work on Super Effective. Also that Earthquake was awesome! Never experienced one before. Much less scary than tornadoes.

Monday, June 21, 2010 10:54 AM

Been a bit since my last news post so lets go over some of the MANY things that have happened in the past month. Namely E3.

I'm really glad to see each E3 progressively getting better ever since it went bust a few years back. The highlight for this show being Nintnedo by FAR. Who by all accounts stole the show this year with many great games.

First and foremost with their new handheld system the 3DS. I must make a note on this for clarity sake. This is not an update on the DS. Far too much separates it from the DS to be filled under the same family. You can check out all the specs over here but, suffice it to say this thing is a beast.

It's already got an IMPRESSIVE list of titles in development. A few notable titles are Kid Icarus, Metal Gear Solid 3, Ocarina of Time, Star Fox, Resident Evil, and Mario Kart. If even a 1/4 of the announced titles make release date this system is going to be awesome.

As well Nintendo has a few Wii titles that are going to be must haves. Metroid the other M, Donkey Kong Country, Kirby Epic Yarn, Zelda Skyward Sword and GOLDEN FUCKING EYE.

Bravo Nintendo.

Rather than drone on any longer, here's a list of other great games seen this show:

In all a great show but, not without it's VERY awkward moments.

As well a few bits of non-E3 news. Mortal Kombat Rebirth 2010 trailer, TF2 for the Mac (with a fun little video and comic), and one of the most bitching Mass Effect 2 costumes.

New comic should be up either late today or tomorrow. Sorry, just been SUPER busy :(

Saturday, May 29, 2010 8:09 AM

Last con this month and finally I can get back to updating. Anime North down in Toronto. Panel today with Lar and tomorrow by my lonesome. I'll have the last bit of this printing run of Super Effective books. Getting while you can!

Few neat things to check out on the ol' internet. Red Dead Redemption is out and it's fantastic. Not without bugs though. Very awesome bugs. Link does some beat boxing. JASON... JASON... Heavy Rain music video. Some NES stop motion. Finally we get teased for some up coming content in
Super Mario Bros. Crossover.

Thursday, May 20, 2010 7:47 AM

The month of cons! WOO! Anyhoo, I'll be in Calgary this weekend for a meet and greet at Otafest. This will be the only time I'll be out in Calgary so be sure to stop by! Will I also have some Super Effective books? Who knows! (The answer is yes.)

Thursday, May 13, 2010 5:04 AM

Going to be down at Acen this weekend in Rosemont near Chicogo. We'll also be giving out a special shiney legendary Pokemon for those who want them. So come down to Artist Alley and check us out!

Thursday, May 12, 2010 5:04 PM

A couple points of interest that happened over the past month. For me the biggest story was the long awaited, and much anticipated Marvel vs Capcom 3 being announced. Check out the trailer for it here. There are a few confirmed characters including Deadpool. His special attack is beating people with his own healthbar. I'm just really crossing my fingers for Phoenix Wright.

A few other news tidbits; The Halo Reach Beta going live. Very much excited for this game. Haven't had this much fun since Halo 2. Another is Rocket Knight on XBLA. As well the Engy update got teased by Valve, FINALLY. I mean it's not like it's the class I always play. *COUGH*

Oh and lets not forget The Passing came out for L4D2. I don't mind the excuse to go back and play this game. Too bad for Bill though. It also sports a weekly Multiplayer variation "Mutation". In fact, one of them got picked up into a permanent feature.

Lastly if you haven't had a chance to check out this charity event, please do. It's basically pay whatever you want for a bundle of indie games. Worth it for World of Goo alone. Also an unrelated note but, while you're picking up those game you should also probably get portal. Since you know, it's FREE. Free is awesome.

Last LAST thing to check out this flash game is a must to try out, Super Mario Bros. Crossover. Go through Super Mario Bros 1 with Megaman, Link, Samus, Contra Guy, or Simon Belmont! Mega fun.

Thursday, May 6, 2010 8:50 AM

New VG Cats and a new Super Effective. Been out and about visiting family and what not. So the comic ended up being drawn an hour here, and an hour there over 2 weeks. The result being a me being very displeased with how it turned out. As I never really got the time to properly script it. I already axed the comic that I was working previously so I thought I might as well finish this one. Oh well I guess. Better an "okay" strip than no strip! :)

Also it turns out my email has been down while I was away too. If you've emailed me over the past month, I've not recived it. Very sorry about that.

Thursday, April 15, 2010 6:24 AM

Driving down to Chicago this weekend for C2E2 (Chicago Comic & Entertainment Expo April 16-18). We'll be sharing a booth with the good people at Halolz(Booth 1132).

As well we'll be doing a on Saturday at 5:30 pm in room E351.

Also one last really awesome video to check out, Law Abiding Engineer.

Sunday, April 11, 2010 4:00 PM

Monday, March 29, 2009 8:27 AM

I'm going to be down at Anime Boston this weekend. Come on down and stop by. Also, BRING YOUR POKEWALKERS. I've become a transfer whore.

Tuesday, March 16, 2010 3:36 AM

Lets just head off those "What the hell is this comic about?" emails now. It's Minecraft. A fun little java game I've been playing for a few weeks. The full survival mode does cost to play but it's also got some free modes. A basic survival mode, creative mode, and multiplayer mode(creative mode with people). I'd suggest trying out these modes before buying.

Indev is the mode you pay for and it's still very much under construction. It's also very addicting... Being the full survival mode the landscape is constantly rotating between night and day. During the day everything is peaceful but at night? Zombies, archer skeletons, spiders, and of course creepers. No real point to the game other than to survive and be creative with the resources you find. Simple but awesome.

I think the real reason I enjoy it so much though is because I used to always play with Lego as a kid. This just kinda brings that experience to life.

If you do chose to buy it here's some good sites to check out:
Minecraft Wiki (specifically crafting)
Skins page
World of Minecraft

What really helped me get started though was this chart. Happy crafting!

Friday, February 26, 2010 4:05 AM

New Super Effective. ANYWAY.

I'll try not to go on too long but, I really have to express the total enjoyment I got from Mass Effect 2. It takes place about two years after the events in the first. Shepard gets killed and brought back. You're working for Cerberus now and fighting the collectors. From there you're treated to some 40 hours of gameplay and just plain fun.

Lets talk positives. Almost all the complaints from the first game were addressed in ME2. The clunky item system is GONE and replaced with weapon load-outs and upgrades. Also axed is the hated Mako. Instead what you get are a variety of missions on lot of different worlds. Where each mission actually feels different from the last. Brought to you with a cinematic feel the first game was sorely lacking.

The gameplay feels a LOT tighter from the first. More robust Gears of War style cover and flank system. With the trimmed down skill tree you're no longer worrying if your electronics skill will open that box. Instead everything is focused on combat. Tactics are a huge part of fighting this time around. As well your character class plays a bigger role than the first. With each having a particular skill that sets them apart from the other.

The Bad? Planet scanning. Tedious to the extreme. Moving your mouse over a planet looking for minerals is as exciting as it sounds. You know what though? Who cares. Everything else about this game is so good I'm willing to over look any of the bad.

Though the biggest draw back to this game is that you really do need to play the first one to enjoy it. I mean you can play it without playing the first but, you're missing so much. Aside from that this game has better characters, better story, and just better everything. I highly recommend picking it up. (And maybe cheat your way through the first one.)

Tues, January 26, 2010 12:10 AM

New Super Effective! Also since it's been a while since I've done a link dump, I think I'll take a link dump.

Videos: Mordin Sings Scientist Salarian(ME2), Mordin on interspecies relationships(ME2), VIDEOGAME DOGZ (spoof), Dragon Age "DLC" Trailer, Megaman 10 Easy Mode, and Zelda II by The Adventures of DnB.

Games: Mario + Tetris = Tuper Tario Tros., First-Person Tetris, and The Company of Myself.

Lastly, Mass Effect 2 finally comes out today. SO PSYCHED FOR IT.

Tuesday, January 12, 2010 7:28 AM

Finally done. I know it's a while after Christmas but I really wanted to get this thing finished. Planned to get this comic done last year but found I didn't have the time. I just didn't know HOW much time it would actually take me. A few of the images in the background are from here and here. Now I can get back to updating Super Effevtive. :P

On a completely unrelated note, friend of mine Josh did this video explaining a career in art/creative fields. Very worth a look if you're ever feeling bummed out while following this path or, if you feel like it's something you might want to follow. "Compare your life to Pixar."

Monday, January 4, 2010 11:39 PM

So I started working on the comic a little over two weeks ago. Took two days off for Christmas and another for fixing a broke car but, the rest I've been drawing. Nothing like working on a Christmas comic AFTER Christmas. Oh well, still working at it but it should be done soon.

For now the great people who do the audio adaptation of VG Cats did an awesome holiday themed Episode. Check it out!

Thursday, December 24, 2009 8:27 PM

Lets take a little wrap up of what I felt were the best and worst of 2009.

Best God Damn Game of the year: Batman Arkham Asylum. Not only was this the first great Batman game but, it was also a fantastic game on it's own with a sequel on the way. Multi platform as well so there's really no excuse not to play the god damn Batman. (Runners up: Left 4 Dead 2, Prototype.)

Best God Damn XBL Game: Shadow Complex. This games screams classic Metroid action and I love it. (Runners up: Monkey Island, Marvel vs Capcom 2)

Best God Damn Adventure Game: Tales of Monkey Island. Gets better every chapter. (Runners up: Brutal Legends)

Best God Damn Content Delivery
: Steam. The deals man, the deals. Hell Team Fortress was $2 at one point. It's really hard for me to actually buy a PC game in the box anymore. (Runners up:No one.)

Shortest God Damn Full Price Game: Halo ODST. Multiplayer was fun for a bit but damn the story mode was it short. After the last fight I could help but think, "Wait, that was the end? Really?". (Runners up: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2)

Biggest Disappointments:Turtles in Time : Reshelled. The most visually confusing game I've ever played. Though Ghost busters was close. Not sure why it didn't go the the Street Fighter HD route and simply updated the graphics. Instead it butchered a classic. (Runner up: Scribblenauts, Ghostbusters.)

New Super Effective! The line "Rock Block" is entirely Steve's fault. Thank him for that.

So getting back to L4D2. I've been waiting on this game with eager anticipation for months now. I'm glad to see it did not disappoint in any way. The improvements on this game first are really so drastic that I can't see myself ever going back. The best comparison I can think of is Halo to Halo 2.

The main area of improvement I think is in verses play. The scoring system has been revamp to reflect progress rather than health (unless it's a tie breaker). This has lead to more balanced matches. Where a team who was losing can still win, even late in the game. This has helped a LOT in rage quitting. Will it ever solve the problem completely? No, people can still be dumbasses. That a problem bigger than Valve.

As well the new infected work to solve a lot of the annoyances of the past. Usually in any kind of frantic activity (Horde, crescendo, etc...) the survivors will take to a corner to ride it out. You do so at great risk now from spitter loogies and charger rams. Forcing people to actually play the game the way it was meant to be.

With five long campaigns, tons of new weapons and power ups, and all of these improvements I can't NOT recommend this game. Hats off to Valve for an awesome sequel.

A few L4D2 videos to check out; Chocolate Helicopter Mod, Silly Sound Pack, and Boomer Roll.

Wednesday, December 2, 2009 7:14 PM

On Sunday I was like "Yeah I totally have enough time to get this done in time for tomorrow. Hell, I'll even get a Super Effective done." Yeah, that took a little longer. Anyway new comic. I'm going to get some sleep.

Dave: No sleep! Post the Shirts!
Scott: Bleargh!

Got two new shirts for christmas in the store. I'd suggest ordering them this week if you're getting them. The christmas rush for shipping does gets a bit hectic.

Edit EDIT: For %5 off use the coupon code "vgcats"

Monday, November 23, 2009 9:26 PM

I officially give up on working on that Halloween thing for right now. Even if it gets done, it'll be Christmas. I'm NOT releasing that on Christmas. It'll be done when it's done. Gonna start just working on regular comics tonight. At least Super Effective has been getting updates. Speaking of which.

New Super Effective!

Monday, October 26, 2009 2:11 AM

New Halloween Pumpkins! Also a new Super Effective.

And if you haven't seen it already. There's a new "Leaked" Left 4 Dead 2 trailer. The demo comes out for those who pre-ordered it on the 27th and for everyone else on the 30th. Can't wait! For those in Austrail version of the trailer for you too.

Tuesday, October 20, 2009 4:55 AM

I really do apologize for not having a VGCats up this week. Had a Scribblenauts strip done that just didn't work out at all. So I scrapped it. THEN MOPED. EMO IS THY NAME. Seriously though I might have been distracted by Brutal Legends as well. Anyway! Working on something special for Halloween though so stay tuned! For now here's a New Super Effective.

The show must go on. We had a pre-order running for most of October at Shark Robot for these new shirts. Leave it to me to post them the day the pre-order ends. So pick 'em up while you can! Personally I'm keeping a Tunnel Snakes shirt for myself.

I should have some new Pumpkin Designs for you either today or tomorrow. For now feel free to use these. Later!

Monday, October 5, 2009 11:08 AM

Man I'm getting bad about making new posts ever since twitter. Gotta break the habit of posting everything there. New VGCats yesterday and a new Super Effective last week. Herp de derp.

Also some videos for you. Dynasty Warriors goes Greek, RE4 Minions, and Phoenix Wright meets EBA meets Queen. You can actually play the track for yourself over here using OSU.

Also that new KOF movie is looking particularly horrible.

Saturday, September 19, 2009 3:00 AM

Just a heads up for all of you who like free stuff. In honor of talk like a pirate day TellTale is GIVING AWAY the first episode of Tales of Monkey Island. This available for today and today only. I highly urge you to try it if you haven't already.

Speaking of Monkey Island I might pick this up.

If you're looking for another free game to kill some time on, here's Canabalt. See how far you can get on a randomly generated escape scene. Two little video's for ya too; a fan made Meet the Pyro and The Cat Piano.

Also a word on Scribblenauts. Been playing it for all of a day now and I gotta agree with Scott, the novelty wore off. Fun as all hell to begin with but it does get very repetitive (Wings, black hole, wings, black hole, etc...). Hard to believe in a game geared for creativity. I do recommend you give it a try though. Technically speaking it's a masterpiece. I just didn't enjoy it for as long as I thought I would.

Oh, yarrrr matey... or something.

Thursday, September 3, 2009 10:58 PM

I understand this item removal affected a vast amount of active players. I get that you're mad. You feel cheated, insulted, and demonized. Here's the thing though. You're getting angry over fictitious items in a videogame. In a videogame. Play it and have fun.

Sorry if I came off a little strong but after watching Shawn idle for months, only to result in this. I took a pleasure in it. A LOT. I'm an asshole, it's what I do.

Edit: Almost forgot. Beavis and Butthead promo for the movie, Extract .

Wednesday, September 2, 2009 11:07 PM

So team Fortress came out with these hats a while ago. They drop randomly while you play the game. The chance of getting one is quite rare. So naturally people used Idlers to cheat their way to a hat. Playing without actually playing.

Well today Vavle cracked down on the cheaters. Everyone who has ever used the Idler program now has all their items removed. For for us who haven't cheated, we get a fancy Halos (not that Halolz). Of course people are a little angry at the situation. There's even a mod out to turn the halo into a giant "Fag" sign. Oh the nerd rage.

Now there are also people who lost items obtained legitimately. Simply because they tried out the bot once. Unfair? Maybe but, using the Idler is a violation of your ToS any way you look at it. In anycase, I made a new spray for the occasion, get it here.

Also a new super effective.

Tuesday, September 1, 2009 2:17 AM

Kinda have to see the movie (Inglourious Basterds) to get this one. Which I totally recomend doing. It was fucking awesome. Sorry I missed last week. Was a little short on time to myself.

Also if you haven't heard already, Disney bought Marvel. Yeeeeeeeeah...

Monday, August 18, 2009 5:24 PM

Here's a short comic after last week's LONG one. Been meaning to use this comic for like two years now. Ah well. Also the video below is very much worth a watch. It's a fan made adaptation of the comics.

Tuesday, August 11, 2009 6:26 PM

New comic, it was really just an excuse to make as many puns as I can. In all I'm not happy with how it turned out. Might just delete it come next week, we'll see.

Friday, August 7, 2009 12:45 PM

My God was I ever tired when I got back. I forgot it was a long weekend and we ended up getting really stuck at the boarder. Traffic was backed up for miles. Drive a foot, break, park, wait for 10 minutes, repeat. Thanks to everyone who came though!

Anyway! Couple of things L4D to mention. First is a brand new campaign announced for it. Crash Course, details over here. As well an amazing fan made campaign released, Heaven Can Wait. It's the first fan made map to have a (make-shift) gauntlet event.

And if you feel like expressing your L4D love with a shirt, the guys at Halolz have this Peelz shirt.

Lastly the Batman Arkham Asylum demo is out and it's fantastic. Of course if you followed my tweets you'd know this already.

Monday, August 3, 2009 9:00 AM

If you're seeing this then Pierre is awesome and uploaded the news post. Thanks! Enjoy the new comic! See you after I drive back from the con.

Monday, August 3, 2009 9:00 AM

If you're seeing this then Pierre is awesome and uploaded the news post. Thanks! Enjoy the new comic! See you after I drive back from the con.

Thursday, July 30, 2009 11:01 AM

Hey guess what! It's time for ConnectiCon! I've always enjoyed going to this con and you'd really be silly not to go this year. Tons of new comic guests this time around that are usually west cost. Wasted Talent, Starslip Crisis, and everything KC Green to name a few. Karian and I will be down there as well. So stop on by, it's always a fun time

Oh, and to preempt the question. Monday's comic IS done. It'll be up on time even if the main page button doesn't reflect it. Just go here when Monday comes.

Monday, July 27, 2009 1:13 PM

Update on a Monday? FANCY THAT. I'll put "Updated Mondays" Back in the title bar when I can keep this up. For now, enjoy. (Yes she really does look like that)

Here are a few videos to check out. The last chapter in RDCCDX: Digital Pirates of Dark Water Saga, The Book of Eli Trailer (Basically Fallout the movie), Iron man the anime and Wolverine the anime.... YEP. The ANIME.

Also the Green Lantern: First Flight came out on DVD today. It's definitely got that Justice League feel to it and hell, better than any other movie that'll come out

And oh hey, TRON.

Tuesday, July 21, 2009 1:15 AM

A word about the new Monkey Island games that are now out.

First is Tales of Monkey Island: Launch Of The Screaming Narwhal. This first episode is a great start to the series. It perfectly captures the feel of the previous games and creates something new. One urk I had was the control scheme. I HIGHLY recommend you use the keyboard (WASD) to move Guybrush. The mouse controls are ungodly bad. That aside I am very much looking forward to the new episodes (with Murry).

Second is Monkey Island : Special Edition out on XBLA and Steam. I've always loved this series but it is hard to get people into it considering the first game is so old. The solution? This game. In addition to the new art the game is also entirely voiced and, voiced VERY well. If that isn't your cup of tea you can always switch to the old version on the fly. It's a game for everyone really with humor that still stands up to this day.

Monday, July 6, 2009 11:23PM

Edit: Well I'm sick to my stomach from lack of sleep but the comic is up. Enjoy.

So I can't really tell days right now but I've been awake for 24 hours, sleeping for 8 hours, and now awake for 24 again. It was when I was fixing myself a snack and poured cereal into a cup that it occurred to me, I should stop working and go sleep.

Comic up Tuesday. I'd love to have it up today but I need to go pass out for a bit. On the plus side visually it's turning out really nice. In the mean while here, enjoy this.

Friday, July 2, 2009 11:54PM

Well E3 was a good few weeks back but I completely missed it. Lets just recap a few highlights from what was a far better show than last year.

First off is L4D2. From what I've read I can't freaking wait for it. Fortunately we finally have the SDK to tide us over. Tons of new maps to chose from right now.

My particular favorite at the moment is Death Abroad. Gimmie a shout if you've got the vpk installed. We're always looking for people to play with.

This piece of news made me squeal like a school girl. Tales of Monkey Island. A brand new monkey island adventure. My mancrush with Telltale Games grows ever bigger. As well we're getting classic Monkey Island games remade on PC and XBL. Feels good man.

Lastly we found out we're getting a remake of TMNT : Turtles in Time. To this day it remains my favorite arcade game ever. If I could buy the stand I would. I'll settle for this though.

There was also Metroid the Other M from Nintendo. A shining piece of gaming in an otherwise crapfest of a press conference. Developed by Team Ninja which means Samus is getting some jiggle physics.

In a bit of ACTUAL news there's this. Korean game called H.A.V.E. Online, it's basically TF2 with anime dolls. Yeah... I'd play it in a heartbeat. Also have some Robot Fighting Geisha.

Monday, June 29, 2009 2:21 PM

Yeah I'm done missing updates. Back on schedule starting now. To help that along here's an awesome guest comic from the guys at GG Guys. (Thanks guys!) As well as a new Super Effective.

Extensive news post on some of the stuff that's gone on in the past month tomorrow. For now here's one of the greatest animations ever.

Friday, May 22, 2009 3:36 PM

Gonna be at Anime North in Toronto this weekend. You can catch my Panel on Saturday at 3pm in Panel Room 1. Finish up the comic on the panel I guess. Come one come all

Also "GAMER" coming this summer to a theater near you. I shit you not.

Monday, May 18, 2009 9:25 PM

A word about Plants vs Zombies. I was a little skeptical going into this game and boy was I wrong.

It's your basic Tower Defense game but here's the twist... It's actually fun. Keeps you from getting bored with by introducing new units and modes of play. When I say new modes of I mean a LOT of them. The amount unlockables and mini-games in this package is staggering. As well clever writing and visuals just bring the whole experience together.

The best part about this game is that it's only TEN BUCKS. Days of game play for ten freaking bucks. Plants vs Zombies is a MUST get. (Also there's a Zombie on your lawn)

Sunday, May 17, 2009 2:21 AM

So the Meet the Spy Video got leaked. Watch it while you can!

Or just watch this Smash Bros 64 Intro with the Team Fortress Guys. One of the coolest things I've ever seen. Great job and a must watch.

Edit: You know the more I think about this video getting leaked, the more I think we got trolled by Valve. I mean it is the SPY video after all. What better way to release it

EditEDIT: So they offically released the video.


Thursday, May 7, 2009 6:58 PM

Well crap. So much to prepare for before a Con and this comic is taking ages to finish. Probably not going to be time to work on it again until Wednesday... Next week... When I get back. I suck hardcore, sorry.

BUT YEAH! Driving (10 hours woo!) down to Illinois this weekend for Anime Central. Come down if you're in the area. Not sure if I'll be back in the area so it's now or never.

If not, here! Go play Whirled. It's awesome.

Tuesday, May 5, 2009 8:59 AM

Got the comic all sketched out finally and moving on to inking. Gonna try and get it up tonight (that's what she said?). For now here are a few neat links to check out.

The Offical Bandai Entertainment Channel has the first season of Code Geass up for watching. Also Subbed.

I FINALLY got to seeing this series after everyone was telling me how good it was. Glad to say it really is. The high school stuff makes me cringe at times but the series is really quite awesome. Give it a watch.

Here's a fun little time killing game, Robot Dinosaurs That Shoot Beams When They Roar. Also here's a few random but awesome youtube vids; Slap slap your troubles away, Lamas with hats, and Unicorn vs. Narwhal.

Thursday, April 23, 2009 8:28 AM

YESH. So tired. I'll get a better news post up after some sleep. For now here's a new comic and here's that silly game show on Sci-Fi it was referencing, THE ULTIMATE GAMAREZ.

The horror... The horror... A side note; I meant to do this comic about 5 months ago. While moving I lost the script and have been piecing it back together. Ah well.

Also uploaded it with missing text just now, since corrected. So if you're one of those folks who check the RSS beforehand you might wanna re-read it.

Wednesday, April 15, 2009 1:10 PM

Working on a new comic right now. For now got a Super Effective up. I just got in a HUGE fucking block with that strip for a while. Still was but I just said "Fuck it", it needed an update. On the plus side the next stip is done and the next 10 strips are scripted.

Few awesome links to check out while you wait. A Meta Time Stratagey game, which was the best thing to come out of GDC. NSFW Dr Manhattan Brawler NSFW. A free three kingdom MMORPG, it's not the best but it's neat. Megaman 2 Rap. Starfox Fortress 2. TOODLES!

Edit Tuesday, April 21, 2009: Oh yeah there was a new Super Effective updated on Saturday. Keep forgetting to mention it here. New comic should be up later today. Tomorrow, taking forever to finish...

Tuesday, March 24, 2009 10:32 AM

Saturday, March 7, 2009 5:51 PM

NewGrounds link to the original "Saturday Morning Watchmen" over here.

So Watchmen was awesome, so awesome. It is missing a lot of the narrative of the comic but it's a really long comic. So you have to cut it some slack. Even at 3 hours long there's no way you're fitting it in there.

What you do have is every scene you loved faithfully receated and true to the source material. A word of warning though if you've never read the book. This film really is a companion to the comic and if you're unfamiliar, you won't appreciate it near as much. So please do give it a read. For everyone else, GO SEE IT.

Now to find where the hell we packed our copy so I can read it again. Oh and here's the opening sequence to the movie for those who have seen it.

Friday, March 6, 2009 5:24 AM

Contest time! Valkyrie Profile DS is coming out this month so we're all running a little contest for one lucky person to win some awesome stuff. Stuff being a signed copy of the game from the guys who made it, sound track, and a signed poster. Deatails about entering over here.

Enjoy some filler today while I get a comic drawn up for Monday (hopefully).

Edit: Yes, versus not verses. A typo made at five in the bloody morning. I might have been a tad sleepy. Since been fixed.

Wednesday, February 25, 2009 5:57 PM

Woo! A new comic. Sorry it's not shaded but I wanted it to be up before I passed the fuck out. Probably will after some sleep. For you youngin's who never saw the Street Fighter movie, here it is.

I've been getting into a bad habbit of scrapping comics I don't like. Figured it can't be the best every time, and I really should just upload them instead. But yeah. That's the delay. Perfectionism neuroses. Aka Whiney and Emo.

Still have that Super Effective strip drawn but I want to make a few others before I slot it into the story. Sorry! Oh hey, a new Ronin Dojo Community College DX: The Digital Pirates of Dark Water Saga. Also go read the new featured comic Allan!

Sunday, February 22, 2009 6:58 PM

This is part of the series the For Tax Reasons guys have going. Here's the first part and here's the next, and the latest.

So the new expansion to GTA 4 is out, The Lost and the Damned. It's got um... Dick.(<-NSFW)

Also a fun little game to try out, Don't Shit Your Pants. It's done in the style of the first generation Sierra Adventure Games. You know, where you have to type in every damn thing. Can you get all the achievents!? (Thanks to Teddy)

I'm probably REALLY the last person to know about this but, here's a guy who did a bunch of videogame tracks using acapella and ukulele. Kick ass stuff.

Tuesday, February 3, 2009 7:33 PM

New Super Effective, for reels. I have the next one drawn too so that'll be up later this week.

So I hear ComiCon is this weekend (February 6-8). Karian and I will be down there sharing a booth with Shawn. I think we're in the same location as last year but I could be wrong. Lots of other people will be down there too; Penny Arcade, Mystic Revolution, and Snafu to name a few.

Few more links to check out. Goldeneye Source's Beta is starting up soon. A LOOONG running project finally seeing an end. Neat little time killer game, perfect balance. Lastly Batman tries out DC vs Mortal Kombat.

Edit: Forgot to mention. Blind Ferret has a small survey up for this site. Fill it out if you've got a sec. Thanks :)

Friday, January 30, 2009 8:25 PM

New Super Effective Removed due to shittiness. Few things to check out gaming wise right now.

The fine lad over at Konjak made this one level wonder called, Legend of Princess. Kind of a what if Zelda was an action sidescroller. Like Zelda II on steroids. It's a free download and I highly recommend getting it. If you like it I strongly urge you to also buy Noitu Love 2. Plays just like it and quite entertaining.

Now on the Xbawks. First is the RE5 Demo is now out. It is awesome. Every game can only be made better by co-op. So you take the gameplay of RE4. Which was one of my favorite games of all time. Then add co-op? Well you've got something you HAVE to play. Go get it.

As well the FEAR 2 demo is out. From the demo I love the direction they're taking with it. Problem I had with the first game is that a lot of it was kinda boring. Lots of flickery lights and not much action until towards the end. This one never stops the action. Plus now you've got these giant mechs you can pilot. Looks really fun.

As well I finally got around to downloading Banjo-Kazooie from the XBL arcade. Classic Banjo with cleaner graphics, faster frame rate, and widescreen. A must get if you loved it on the N64. (Comparisons over here)

Haven't gotten a chance to play Operation Anchorage for Fallout. I will though, oh I will. Fallout 3 was easily my favorite game for 2008. With Brawl at a close second. So I will be getting to this at some point. The Chinese Power armor is just sexy.

Also sarge sent me two neat videos to check out. One is an exerp from the upcoming game Eat Lead : The Return of Matt Hazard. FPS vs JRPGs. The other is Deadpool exerpts from the new cartoon/movie/thing. PEACE.

Sunday, January 25, 2009 12:13 PM

So this is a conversation between me and dave a few months ago.

Tue Aug 19 17:25:33 2008
[17:38] Dave: do a Dead Rising Wii comic
[17:38] Scott: yeah
[17:38] Scott: god
[17:38] Scott: what the hell did they do to it
[17:38] Dave: have frank in the first panel saying "i've covered wars you know!"
[17:38] Dave: then second panel, empty mall
[17:38] Dave: with him saying "hello..?"
[17:38] Scott: NO CAMERA
[17:38] Scott: frank west
[17:38] Scott: photo journalist
[17:39] Scott: NO CAMERA
[17:39] Dave: or for effect
[17:39] Dave: he doesn't finish the first line
[17:39] Dave: just "i've covered wars you kn...."
[17:39] Dave: do it

So Dead Rising is coming out soon and I decide to do it. MEANWHILE AT FANBOYS. By the time I saw this I had the comic about halfway finished. We're gaming comics, this happens. Jokes pulled from the same pot. Still I hate it when it happens.

In summation, Dead Rising for the Wii looks like a bowl of smelly ass. Putting it nicely. Did I mention Frank CAN'T take photos?

Saturday, January 16, 2009 4:15 AM

Forgot to mention last update a thanks to everyone who came down for Anime LA. Lots of fun. :) Also been getting requests for a wallpaper so here ya go!

Edit Wednesday, January 21, 2009 6:51 PM: Should have a comic up late Thursday. Thought I could get it today but I'm on like hour 26 and near collapse. Ah well... Oh hey VG Birds! (Source) and the Rand Savage L4D Mod. You can pick that up right over here. Lastly a new Trailer for Street Fighter 4. I know the dubbing and story can be a bit much but... I'm ashamed to say I actually like that.

Saturday, January 10, 2009 4:19 AM

Comic is up. Would have LOVED to get this up before christmas but it took way longer than I thought it would. I like how it turned out though even if it's not funny. I mean it's not like it has to be to funny to be enjoyable. On that note, enjoy!

Wednesday, December 31, 2008 9:34 AM

Baaaaah!Plane leaves in like 2 hours and didn't get a comic done in time. Anyway! Bit of an odd time to be doing a con but got one in LA this weekend. Anime Los Angles Jan 2nd-4th.

In the mean time you might want to give this little indie game a try. Don't let the cute graphics fool you, because it's deceptivley awesome. Eversion!

Also this is just plain bullshit. Here's hoping we'll see Watchmen before 2010.

Sunday, December 21, 2008 5:54 AM

Uploaded a New Super effective Yesterday. Gonna get some filler up today and I'll have a new comic up between now and Christmas. Sorry for the prolonged absents. I'd love to say moving back to Canada has been smooth but hey, things happen. Took more on my plate than I could eat I guess. ANYWAY. Back to comics. :)

Two things I've been NEEDING to mention. Child Play, it's almost Christmas so give lots. :) Or buy a card over here through our Holiday Christmas Card Fundraiser.

Also here's an awesome video with smash bros.

EDIT Monday, December 22, 2008 11:14 PM: Decided to just go ahead and make a comic instead of filler. Enjoy!

Friday, December 5, 2008 6:35 AM

Well it's taken a little while but we've got ourselves a store again! All thanks to the awesome guys at Shark Robot. If you've seen me at any cons this year then you've seen them right next to me. AND we've got some new shirts! A first ever wrap around design with cuccos, a Light shirt based on this comic and high elfs because they like to party. Cut off date for shipping before christmas is Dec 12th. Get 'em while you can.

Still working on a comic. Really sorry, just been trashing a lot of ideas. I'll have one up for Monday SOMEDAY no matter what. REALLY. Guess my word doesn't mean shit at this point. But I just don't like uploading bad comics.

Also I'll be down for the FFXI Fan event on Saturday. See ya there! Didn't have time to get anything ready to be sold but I'll be there doing sketches regardless.

Friday, December 5, 2008 4:45 AM

Konami's got this as a teaser on thier site. I can't be the only one who thought this. Still it'd be nice since I still have yet to play MGS4.

Monday, November 24, 2008 11:57 AM

You might want to put headphones on if you're at work or school before you play this. Just a hunch.

Few fun links to check out while I get the comic done. Gears of awesome and Cog of War 2, you cannot pay for that with a spider, there is no way this much innuendo is accidental, these games are awesome (personal fav), and of course Cooking Mama Kills.

Lastly this game, Auditorium. Friend of mine tossed me the link the other week. If you love games like Rez and Every Extended Extra you'll love this. Basically a puzzle game that uses music. Check it out!

Edit: Didn't get a VGC comic done but I did get a Super Effective done! Enjoy!

Saturday, November 15, 2008 8:05 AM

I think I just drew a Cat-Bear. New comic. Been a little hard on Nuts & Bolts but, after trying the demo I might have been very wrong. I'll pick it up and letcha know.

News post will follow after I get some sleep. For now, new Watchmen Trailer. I liked the first one better. Really not liking the dialog changes in the script. Makes Rorschach sound like a pussy. I'll still go see it though.

Edit 11/17/2008: New Super Effective(s).

Monday, November 3, 20084:56 PM

SO! Finally sorta half moved in and back in Canada. We spent a few days getting stuff out of storage and that's all that's here right now. More stuff on the way. Moving is exhausting. Oh yeah, NEW COMIC! The dog in Fable has a nose for SOMETHING. I'm not sure if it's treasure.

Oh and did someone say Pumpkins?!
Here's all the designs you guys sent in over the past week. Totally awesome. Thanks everyone! Halolz also had a few good ones up too. Oh and I hear there's an election coming up. I know who I'm voting for.


Wednesday, October 22, 2008 2:45 PM

Thought I forgot about these? Well I did! Thanks for reminding me everyone. Got a few new ones done fir this year.
We got the last of the stuff here packed last night. Movers came and went this morning. SO pooped. Nothing left but a looooong drive tomorrow. Happy Halloween!

Edit: Fixed the defects in the Pokeball and Red design. If youy guys want to send those pumpkin pics in to me I can get it posted like I did last year. Thanks! :)

Monday, October 20, 2008 7:23 AM

New super Effective! VGC will probably be delayed a bit this week. Depends if I have time to finish it. 25+ hour drive ahead of me, packing, etc.... So we'll see how it goes. Been just so busy getting stuff done for the move.

ANYWAY! Popular videos this week and just ones I like. Take On Me: Literal Video Version, CUUUUBE, Showers, Smash Bros Anime, Dear Sister, and because Saints 2 came out this week here's Buggy Saints Row again.

Here's a few from a really awesome animation studio (Talantis Films) I first heard about on Drawn. Pyrats, Jungle Jail, Hugh, Oracle, and VooDoo. I just love thier combination of 3D and 2D animation to tell a story.

(Edit:Whoops all done) What I wouldn't give to play Fable 2 right now. This guy over here is doing just that in a live stream. Give it a watch. He's been chopping wood for like 15 minutes now. Wood I tell you, WOOD. Also here's the first 10 minutes of Gameplay.

Can't freaking wait. Bad part is we're moving back to Canada the day it comes out. So I WILL wait. Because I have no other choice.

Also a Charity Feed going on over at Destructoid For Texas Childrens Hospital. A SingStar Marathon to raise money for Extra Life. Giving games to kids who need 'em.

New video from the "IM IN UR MANGER KILLING UR SAVIOR" Guys. Awesome.

Oh yeah, New comic! Not to happy with the way the pacing turned out around the middle. Ah well. Sorry for the delay, took me all week. This is the LAST time I'm doing any more of this "arc". As in these last three comics.

Little note about those last two comics. Some people seem to think it's some kind of political stance. Nope. I draw what I think is funny. It's just a comic. It's not like I'm out there with a coat hanger. DURF.

Oh and a BIG thanks to Xyro for helping me work through the issue with Dreamweaver. Eventually found out it was a conflict with the Virus scanner. It seemed to think it needed INTENSIVE scanning. Thanks again!

Monday, October 13, 2008 10:33 AM

Oh hey a new Super Effective! I miss when dreamweaver worked on this computer. Made updating a whole lot easier. Anyway! Here are a few things coming out of TGS and Blizcon this week.

Halo 3 Recon (trailer, info), Sephiroth in LBP (commence rage), New Banjo still looks like shit, Noby Noby Boy is fucking catchy, as is LocoRoco 2, and Starcraft 2 split into 3 games. I guess because Blizzard is hard up for cash. Obviously.

Wednesday, October 8, 2008

WELP! Need to make a new layout soon. Method for updating is kinda sucky right now. Don'tcha love technology? Anyway! New Super Effective.

Tuesday, September 23, 2008 1:47 AM

Started as "Oh hey photoshop won't open". Then ended in "Well there goes OS...". So just dropped it off at Best Buy and let them handle it after an exhausting day of me trying to. Gonna finish it up on the laptop instead. Just letting you know, slight delay.

Edit: If you didn't know we had a pretty big Hurricane roll through Texas. Friend of mine Xero got hit pretty hard. He's open for commisions and donations. If you want some totally killer art and help out a great artist, nows the time.

Edit Tuesday Sept, 30th: Sorry for the no news posts. New OS on this computer and not everything is working; IE. Software for news posts. I'll try and find an alternative. Also you guys were a HUUUUGE help to xero. He was overwhelmed with the response. You guys ROCK, thanks a lot.:)

Thursday, September 18, 2008 4:08 AM

Few little news and review things to go over today. In the news I couldn't be happier to find out that Duke Nukem 3D for XBL (coming out late this month) is going to sport 8 player co-op. EIGHT. This game is going to kick huge amounts off ass.

Uwe Boll also has a game coming out to coincide with his movie. Best thing I can think of to discribe this is; confusingly bad. Time is much better spent playing fun stuff like this. Gang Garrison II, it's a pixel version of TF2, setup instead like a 2D platformer. Just expect some unexpect server data errors once and a while. I mean, it's a fan project after all.

dfNow one thing I've been overjoyed with is the fact that Funimation took over One Piece. The DVDs are starting to come out now and they're superb.

It's a shame 4Kids did so much damage to the reputation to the series. Thankfully Funimation has done a lot to remidy this. Replace voices, air it UNCUT, and basically leave the series intact. Luffy's voice still gets on my nerves but it's the only one. Sanji the retard is no more.

If you're a fan of One Piece and looking to collect the series for yourself then I highly recommend picking it up.

dfNow you might remember a while ago I was talking about the Sumo Omni sack. Well I've had a chance to try out their new Softer version. Unlike the other one this can tear as it's cloth. Thankfully it's double bagged. Plus side though it's way the hell more comfy. Seriously. It's been used as a bed when a lot of people have been over.

Downside is that it takes up a bit more space. Larger versions especially. If you've got the room I'd recommend it above the Omni simply due to comfort. Which it's guaranteed not to go flat. Six months into is so far it's lived up to that for me. Be warned though... If price is an issue. This is expensive.

Now for some neat links. Megaman 9 Sound Track, Middle Aged Mutant Ninja Turtles, Starcraft 2 Comic Contest, and Kagi nochi tobira (Puzzle Flash game). Dare you to finish all those puzzels without checking for hints. DARE YOU.

Tuesday, September 16, 2008 3:02 PM

New comic eh? Yeah... Might go back and shade this when I'm not so bleeding tired. Been at this one for a few days straight. Need a break from the ol' computer. Hope ya like it.... It's a long one.

Thanks to everyone who sent in a kind word or two with the whole writers block thing. It really helped. Thank you :)

Edit Wednesday, September 17, 2008 3:31 PM : Turns out I plum forgot Ryan sent a comic in like... Nine months ago to be posted today. Part of his "Do an ungodly amount of guest comics for people on one day" project.

Thursday, September 11, 2008 8:22 PM

I do apologize immensely for not having any comics up. It's not like I haven't been working over the past month on them either. There are new comics. Just not the main one. Of which I have been drawing and scrapping (just a few of them here). Even more are still storyboards on the note pad. I've been very reluctant to release any of them. I just don't think the quality is there.

For now here
's some awesome Deviant Arts for you to

Edit: Removed whiney rant. God I'm emo.

Monday, September 8, 2008 3:23 PM

New Super Effective. As well a new Adventure Log. Expect a new VG Cats Today or tomorrow. WE'RE BACK BABY. Found this on Kotaku. HIGHLY worth the watch. Zero Punctuation rip off I know but it's quite informative.

Few other things of note. Final Fantasy - Dissidia is looking quite "teh sex".

The Sessler is taking Charge of X-Play. Everything good can come of this. I've been watching the new episodes when I can since the format change. It's still way too light on the reviews but I'm glad to see the skits get axed.

Lastly Castle Crashers is BEYOND good. Seriously. By far the best Xbox Live game I've ever bought. So much depth and replayability. There's some connection issues right now but they're working on it and should be fixed soon. Other than that. GET IT. FUN.

Now here a few more random vids: Lukystar Mario, The Melancholy of Jojo, Sprinkler Rainbow Conspiracy.

Monday, August 25, 2008 10:43 AM

ballsLast guest comic for the year I swear... but god damn it's hilarious. Comes courtesy of Brian Wilson over at his new comic Geist Panik. Also a new Super Effective. I've been drawing a few comics over the past two weeks. Hated them all and scrapped 'em. Just a little stressed right now I think. Kills the funny. Probably use this week to catch up for next Monday. Thanks Brian!

Oh hey and we FINALLY have a shirt to go along with this comic. Everyone was asking about when I'd make it into a shirt while I was doing cons. I'm very happy with the design. Hope you guys like it!

A little while ago I was talking about a custom make your own Elite Beat Agent game. Using your own MP3s and downloading tracks others have made. Well this one is WAY the hell better. It's called OSU! and it works under the same idea as the other one but it's far more streamlined. As well a ton more songs. These are a few of my favorites. Check it out!

Also this was a bout damn time. Can't think of how many hours I'd play Nukem multiplayer. Even made a shit ton of maps for it. Can't wait for 4 player co-op however.

Lastly this I love this song.

Tuesday, August 19, 2008 4:47 PM

Brian: Meet the Sandvich is up
Scott: That was awesome....

Saturday, August 16, 2008 6:29 AM

I didn't die. New super effective! Hate coming back with such a week strip but whatever. Should have a new VG Cats (thanks MayuZane) this Monday. Con season is OVA for the summer. So shouldn't be too many more delays. Here a vid of the best thing to come out of this years otakon.

I think she's part of this band. Dunno! Awesome all the same. Few more videos this week... Temp Fortress, AWESOME crossing, Mortal Kombat in central park, Metal Gear Fingers, and the new MegaMan 9 Intro as well as all the robot masters.

So pumped for that game you have no idea.

Wednesday, August 6, 2008 5:13 PM

Man... 13 hours of flying thanks to delays. Fun times! Love to have a comic this week but time is like nonexistent. We're honestly here for two days and then we're off again. Last con this year though! SPEAKING OF WHICH!

We'll be down in Baltimore, Maryland this weekend (August 8th - 10th) for Otakon. Won't be as a guest since this is very last minute. BUT! I will be down there signing anything you give me and pedling shirts, posters, badges, and plushies down in artist alley.

Not leaving you without content this week. Drew this quick comic while down at Conneticon. Karian of course made like three way better comics. Do read those. Thanks to everyone who came down to see us this past weekend. I'll try and have a Super Effective up later tonight.

Edit Monday, August 11, 2008 10:45 PM : Just got back from Otakon. Sorry, no new Super due to me getting really fucking sick. It's why I wasn't shaking hands for Fri-Sat. Didn't mean to be rude or anything but I just didn't want to make anyone else that sick. Thanks to everyone who came all the same! :)

Thursday, July 31, 2008 1:14 AM

Con this weekend folks! ConnectiCon West Hartford, Connecticut, August 1st - 3rd! We'll be there all weekend with badges, posters, shirts, and plushies! As well as a hell of a lot of web comic people. Personally I'm getting this dudes sig. Since he'll be there too. Looks like it's going to be a really fun con. Hope to see you there!

Also Street Fighter Devotion a fan site for everything street fighter is up and running. EVERYTHING. Big ol' site. SF fans rejoice. Personally can't wait for SF HD.

Dr Horribles Sing-a-long Blog is finally back online from limbo. They'll probably rotate what episodes are online so watch it while you can! You can still buy all of them on iTunes and it's SO worth the watch. Funniest thing I've seen all year. Plus it's got NPH and Nathan Fillion! Fuck yeah!

Two more quick vids. First is Stickman Exodus. Neat little series about stickmen around a kids notebook. Other is old but I still love it. It's a sad episode of pokemon. D`:

Lastly a new Super Effective! Gonna try and draw a new comic over the weekend. One I WAS doing this week was no where near done. Holy heck. Gonna need some time with it.

Saturday, July 26, 2008 0:51 AM

Well looky who's finally on the internet. More videos here, here, here, and here.

Edit: Ooooh a Twitter. Wow I'm so trendy and not a tool. (Yes I am)

Tuesday, July 22, 2008 8:18 PM

Guess who doesn't see us as a market anymore. Yep. Animal Crossing? That's it?... Really? The thing is... They did something with Wii that no other console has been able to do. Bring in the mainstream in droves. Now that's making more money than they ever did with just us. So we've just stopped being a priority.

Not my only gripe with this years E3. I mean what a mind-blowing disappointment this year's show was. Third party support was the only highlight of the show. Everyone else just didn't seem to give a shit. I don't blame them though. This really isn't the same E3 we saw a short 2 years ago. After this one I couldn't see them ever putting on another one. It really is dead. Glad I got to be there for the last one in '06.

Oh if anyone has emailed me over the past week. It's been down. Working again now but that's why I havn't responded. And this is one Awesome (face) shirt. Ah Shark Robot.

Thursday, July 17, 2008 4:18 PM

New trailer fresh from E3 duuuurrrrr....

Honestly what were they thinking? Their stuff from almost a decade ago was better. Now I know I'm one for missing a deadline, but, yikes guys. Finish the fucking material or don't show it at all. Of course this could just be one massive TROLL sooo... Disregard. Best game of E3!

Wednesday, July 16, 2008 6:14 AM

Went for a Machall/TPS look for this weeks comic. Not sure if I'll do it again though. HOLY FUCK did it take a while to do. I like how it turned out though even if the joke is a little lame. Now lets talk the Vidja.

Lost Winds. Very cute little title available now on Nintendo's new WiiWare. I'd rather see this as a DS title with a stylus but it still works fairly well with the Wiimote. It's a short game but if you're looking for something to kill time with it's nice. Same price as a Virtual Console title (1000points) so it's not very expensive and worth a download.

Bad Company. Love this game. Single player plays like Delta Farce the game which can get on your nerves at times but, gameplay totally makes up for it. Multiplayer's where I've been spending my time. Comes with a mode called Gold Rush. A control point style game with one team attacking and one defending. Only a handful of maps but god damn is it fun. Best thing I like about this game is nearly EVERYTHING is destructible. The ground, walls, trees, building, vehicles, organs. Worth a pickup if you've got some people online to play with.

GTA4. If you're a fan of the series you really don't need to read this. You've already gone out, picked it up, played it, beat it, and played it some more. For everyone else though, here ya go.

The game is a lot more scaled back in character customizability than previous versions. For some this will be a huge draw back. Not me though. I don't missed hitting the L&R buttons endlessly in the Gym. What this game does do is give you a fleshed out, lifelike city for you to cause havoc in. Single player will keep you busy for a while and this is by far my most favorite GTA story to date. Full city multiplayer will be there when you're done with that. Just like the classic games on the PC.

Biggest complaint are the amount of chase mission in single player. You'll learn to hate them but, the game does so much more, so very good you can overlook any negative aspects. GET IT.

Now for something completely different.

Saturday, July 12, 2008 3:05 AM

Hey hey, New Super Effective. Forgive the lateness. Wanted to get this one scripted right.

Edit 7/13/08 4:35 AM: Totally missed this panel at Anime Expo. Wish I'd gone but oh well. On the plus side and Egoraptor and Gamer Tonight came by to rub it in. D: NOT THAT I'M JEALOUS! (Totally am) And big points for whoever got him to quote the comic. <3

PS. Crab Battle.

Friday, July 11, 2008 2:00 AM

I really do apologize for the down time of the comic. I don't mean for Cons to take away from the site but there's a shit ton of effort that goes into every one. Before, during, and after... So when I say I'm tired, I am very honestly exhausted. Big thanks to everyone who keeps on reading or who sends in a kind word. It will pick up in the fall I promise.

EMO SCOTT ASIDE! I did a quick guest comic for Dave over at Snafu. It comes from when we were all sharing a booth. Happens every time. No, he is not Bleedman. (But you should ask him anyway)

Also here's a wallpaper verison of that Pikachu Filler.
800, 1024, 1280, 1360 (wide). As per request.

I can't quite tell you how excited I am for a new NES Megaman Game. It's looking sooooo good too. I was a hardcore megaman fan back in the day. It'll be interesting to see how much I suck at it now. One new thing is the addtion of a female robot master, Splash Woman. Only took 20 years. A regular robo sausagefest.

Here's a Video dump for you guys. Meet the S****, Ketchup mania Music vid, Spore Zelda Creatures, Simpsons for Quake 3, Crashman is Super, and the Window Seat. A nice series of shorts about air travel.

Finally my favorite Gurren Lagann Parallel Works 1, 2, 3, and 4. Reimagining of the gurren lagann universe in small shorts. Super awesome. Definitely worth a watch if you're a fan.

Wednesday, July 9, 2008 3:43 AM

Got a guest comic today from Chris at Digital Unrest! Four Day con has me POOOOOOPED. So news post a little later. Thanks to everyone who came! I'm going to sleep now! Exclamation point!

Wednesday, July 2, 2008 4:46 AM

We'll be down at Ainme Expo this weekend. Haven't been down there since E3 so it'll be nice to go again. Since E3 wasn't really a place that's easy to meet up. That being said we'll be down in the Exhibitor hall. So come on down and say hi! We'll be there for most if not all days.

Sorry about the filler art but I'm sure you're tired of excuses... So I won't! :D just enjoy Cloverfield Pikachu. Also this:

This song will haunt me to my GRAVE.

Thursday, June 19, 2008 2:55 AM

New Super Effective! Also a few cool videos... Meet the Sniper, Rent Roman, Ironman Spiderman & Hulk, and YTMND VGC Starfox. ZOINKS!

Edit 6/23/08 3:40 PM: Ian drew this little sketch for me during Fanime. Finally inked and coloured it. Thanks man! Wallpaperized for your convenience.


Saturday, June 14, 2008 12:15 PM

Decided to put this one up early since I didn't do a comic last week. Enjoy!

The cellphone is one of those to nitpick but it's also an ingenious addition to the gameplay. One thing I've always found myself doing in GTA games is eventually getting bored and turning it off. Not be cause the game is bad, no way. No I get lost having fun in that giant world they give you.

Consequently I never get around to going about the main games story. What the cellphone does now is keep you engaged in the games experience. While being a bit annoying it also keeps you playing the game. It offers side quests, minigames, story events, and EVERYTHING else. So you take the bad with the good, my cousin.

Edit 6/16/08 7:28 AM: Reader pointed me over to this GTA4 video on Newgrounds. Hilarious. Though I didn't know you could cheat in the game. I wouldn't want to fuck with my achievements however.

Thursday, June 12, 2008 7:37 AM
Got some SUPER AWESOME guest comics for ya!
Big thanks to these guys (and girl) for the guest comics. As well the Fan page has also been updated. With some super awesome Rat Flail art. I should have a comic up for Monday. FUN FACT! I've actually drawn two comics this week but I was really not happy with them. So I'll hold on to 'em. I am with the next one I'm drawing though. So Monday for sure. For now a new Super Effective!

Oh and the new Penny Arcade game is out if you haven't heard by now. I'll letcha know how it is after some more time with it. So far so very, very funny.

Edit 06/12/2008 9:59 AM: ZeStuff just came out with some VG Cats Hats! Keep your head warm, fend off the sun, and tell your hair, "NOT TODAY HAIR, today is hat day."

Friday, June 6, 2008 5:09 AM

Will to draw right now is zero moving and on to negative numbers. Two weekends of cons has totally drained me. I never charge for sketches, NEVER. I mean you come all that way to see me so it's the LEAST I can do. So it ends up being hundreds of drawings in one weekend... For two weekends. Fries me a bit. Plus I NEED to get my taxes done for this year ... now. Self income means it's going to take some time to do. </Excuses, whining> .... IN SUMMATION. Just gonna take a break this week.

On the plus side Trunks and Soto sent in this guest comic. Very awesome guys. Asked for this one while we were doing a panel at A-Kon. So very thankful he did it. Also who were in attendace at A-Kon; Apple Geeks (Thanks for the Eve fig), Dominic Deegan (Thanks for the book!), Fireball20XL (Thanks for the CDs!), Mystic Revolution (Thanks for the book!), Star Crossed Destiny (Thanks for the table!), Konsekai: Swordwaltzer (Thanks for the book!), Two Lumps (thanks for being awesome!), and a HUGE thanks to Herms for the cameos in the Sonic Comic. BIGGEST thanks to everyone who came down. Lots of fun!

Welp. New Adventure Log. People always ask when this thing is updated. It's tied into the News letter so it updates when that does. This comic was actually done two weeks ago.

If you guys want to send in any guest comics or art to have up here (while I'm being a slacker) feel free to send it in. I'll be updating the fan section with stuff I've recived over the past few months. Since it is in need of update as well.

Edit: New Super Effective. Dibadiba.

Friday, May 30, 2008 7:33 AM

Awkward Zombie not akward zombie. If not for spell check I'd be legally retarded. Even with it's by a hair. BUT ANYWAY! Thank you everyone for coming out to Fanime. Total blast and glad to hear from everyone. I almost didn't do cons this year too. Which would have been a shame.

Quick little wrap up for Fanime; Met up with Three Panel Soul whom I didn't know was going to be there cause I'm a douchebag like that. Nice little surprise and I'm totally inking that drawing ya gave me. Speaking of sketches Cassey got us a Sketch from the Gurren Lagann guys, Bryce picked us THE Gurren Lagann, and Shawn happened to notice the GL guys were RIGHT BEHIND. So we got our book signed too. A GOOD DAY. Thanks to all.

Now we've got another con this weekend (May 30th - June 1st) in Dallas, A-Kon 19! Should be down by the main entrance again. Now we won't be there on Sunday so you'll have to catch us on either Friday or Saturday. See ya there!

Oh yeah, new Super Effective. Back to back cons (while fun) kill my update schedule more than usual. But I've got the next already made so it's all good. SLACKER OUT.

Monday, May 26, 2008 1:33 AM

Just got back... SO TIRED. Talk about stuff later. For now a super HUGE thanks to Awkward Zombie for this guest comic for while I was gone. Totally hilarious.

Edit: Removed link image as we are wanging thier bandwidth. Our bad.

Tuesday, May 20, 2008 5:42 PM

Keep forgetting to post this... Tiny site survey if you've got a sec. Click, click, done. Thanks everyone for helping out!

Oh and this! I'm informed we've got some brand new items up for sale. Posters and a shirt.


Edit 05/20/2008 7:20 PM: Normally I try not to talk about the space cowboy... but...


Monday, May 19, 2008 11:57 AM

Last pokemon comic I swear! This one really just didn't fit into super effective. Hell this one almost didn't fit period. I mixed up silver/gold pokemon with red/blue and had to drastically edit this comic before it was uploaded. In anycase it came from a conversation with my better half. Feel so old that I can have this conversation at ALL. Looks like I'll be having it a while longer too. Truth be told I loved pokemon red but Silver was always my favorite. Two whole maps of fun. Here's somthing fun; See how many of the classics you can name.

Also.. THIS SUNDAY SUNDAY SUNDAY! Actually all weekend (May 23 - 25, not going Monday) we'll be at Fanime Con in San Jose, California. Per usually we'll be down there with Shawn and Dave because those two are inseparably... If you know what I mean. (in the bum) Come on down and say hi!

Oh and Tokyo pop did a quick interview while at NY Comicon the other week. Man I hate seeing myself talk. I've actually done TV interviews before but never posted it here just because of that. Necrotic I know. However we both love the Toykopop. Dramacon is a personal fav.

This has me totally jazzed. I remeber seeing Namco X Capcom months ago and going "Why the fuck do we not have this?". Hats off to them for making it happen.

Speaking of things that make me giddy as a school girl. Eternal Darkness was one of my favorite games of all time. This isn't a concrete THIS WILL HAPPEN but it's nice to hope. Last bit of unknown rumor news there's this. New Reboot series? HOPE MY FRIENDS. Hope.

To say a lot of my time is spent in GTA4 is an uderstatement. I'll letcha know in full a bit later but for now this game is pure win. Here's a neat little utility. It's a map of the city which is very useful since it's quite big. (That's what she said)

Also pruned my Links Section and added a bunch I should have for a while now. Cause I'm lazy like that. In fact this week's Slackers is just gold. But yeah;Allan Comic, Awkward Zombie, Digital Unrest, Dueling Analogs, Katebeaton, Slackerz, Star Crossed Destiny, and Wasted Talent. GO READ!

VIDEO DUMP! Metal Slug 7! I know a song...The Girls of Phoenix Wright, Super awesome animated short with pirates, music made using a mario level, a REALLY cute Phoenix Wright anime intro, and a slightly creepy one. BOOT TO THE HEAD!

Lastly a quick thanks to the advertisers on the site. This caught my attention. I'll be sure to pick it up when it comes out and letcha know how it is. As I loves me the One Piece. Also Mass Effect PC. Holy crap so getting it. I dunno, I just prefer the mouse to the joystick for these things.

Wednesday, May 7, 2008 8:03 AM

Lets talk the vidjagames. Lots out in the past little while and I've been neglecting to go over them. So here's some quick thoughts on a few games.

No More Heroes. This is one of those games where you can over look a lot of it's short comings just on game presentation. It's a subtle humor that I just love and to boot it's fun to play. Don't think you'll be sitting down for this game either. VERY active. GTA part is shit but it doesn't make up much of the gameplay. Try it out as it might not be for everyone.

Rainbow 6 Vegas 2. You're basically paying for a run button in this game which I'd gladly do. The first one kept me and people I played with online busy for quite some time. None of the fun was lost in this sequel. You've got a beefed up story mode with AI that actually works well and all the multiplayer modes from the first with new maps. If you loved the first you've got to pick this up.

Mario Kart Wii. I can't be more apathetic over this title. Single player is really quite a pain to play and you NEED to do it in order to unlock new tracks and characters. They've given the CPU opponents full access to the items which is fun for people... not AIs. It means you're going to get randomly hit with any number of lame power ups seconds before the finish line. The new catch is that this game controls steering with the Wiimote. Don't. It's shit and you're better off with a gamecube controller. This title is a rental at best.

Army of Two. Didn't get to sit down with this one as much as I'd like to but it was a lot of fun. IF... and that's a BIG if. IF you have someone to play this game with. You really can't count on the AI for this game at all. However if you're playing this with someone then you can actually implement tactics rather well. Pick it up if you've an army of two.

Sunday, May 4, 2008 8:36 PM

Video dump time! POOP JOKE!
Most awesome music in GTA 4, Sony defense force lololo, make your own hero, Smash Bros 64 Wii hack ...As much as I like a bricked Wii I'll just stick to the real one, Live reading of Gurren Lagann, "Yuri the Only One for Me" little corny but well done, Resident Evil Caramelldansen, cutest dancing animation ever, OE Cake! It's a water/fire/physics stimulator, Playing Tetris with arm wrestling, Classic SNES controller for Wii, fucking weird Mario music video, Caramell dansen Metal Version.

Also I got Nominated for a Shuster Award. Doubt I'll win but whatever, still cool.

Oh yeah, new vg cats and new super effective. PEACE.

Edit Monday, May 5, 2008 8:20 AM: Iron Man was fucking amazing. Even if you don't like comics I urge you to go see it. If only for Robert Downey Jr's HILARIOUS performance. The new hulk movie still looks like shit though. At least there's Batman to look forward to.

Edit Monday, May 5, 2008 1:26 PM: Sorry the comic keeps changing. I really don't know which one to go with. I'll keep the alternate one over at my deviant art account.

Been a while since I talked about any games. So here goes! We've got Mario Kart and GTA IV launching this week. What in the hell was Nintendo thinking?

This is one of the last big games for the Wii in the foreseeable future. I mean unless they pull a miracle out of thier ass at E3 or Spaceworld. Which they may well do. I mean this IS Nintendo. Good chance we'll see a new DS very soon. But it's looking like a slow year for the Wii and a great time for the PS3 to play some catch up. With HD DVD dead in the water this may be PS3s year to shine.

Now Mario Kart is by no means bad. Shawn brought over his copy at NY Comicon and I enjoyed what I played. Feels much more like Mario Kart DS which is a very good thing. Here's the thing though... We've seen like 3 Karts in the past 5 years. It's starting to feel same old same old. This one like DS is online but, like Brawl it's really a half assed attempt.

Anyway I digress. I am looking forward to playing both titles. However with 15 online modes WITH VOICE and freeroaming deathmatches. I think one may be played more than the other. Just a hunch. Nintendo would have done well to hold on to Mario Kart Wii until Summer and make it shine. Because when competing directly with GTA IV... this is mediocre attempt.

OMG So Tired. Got back last night. New York was AWESOME. SO going back next year. Thanks to everyone who came by! You guys all rock so much! Thanks to Shawn and Dave and Kari and EVERYONE else who helped out. Super fun weekend!

Oh yeah. Got so many Pokemon comic ideas poolin' around my head. So I decided to do a new Pokemon based comic series. SUPER EFFECTIVE! As inspired by this one. It'll Follow Red from start to end in the first Pokemon game Fire Red. Should be easy to update. Expect to see it Weekly along side VG Cats.

Main comic probably won't be done until Monday though. Long one!

Monday, April 14, 2008 3:04 AM

Deleted the Sonic comic. It never really was intended for upload. It was more "Oh hey I'm not sure when I'll have power again. So I better upload SOMETHING." So yeah, took it down.

This comic is more of filler than anything. Boarding went long on another comic so I did this one instead. Oh well. NY COMIC CON
THIS WEEK. Hope to see you there. (Again booth #1822 across from DC)

Edit: Can't find our Comicon booth? We're right here (map courtesy of the worst Smash Bros player ever). The guys next to us aren't listed though. We're assuming ghosts.. or porn... or both. I hope it's both. Sexy ghost porn.

Thursday, April 10, 2008 9:32 PM

Well tornados are pretty awesome eh? Yeah... No. Got hit by one on Wednesday and it tore through our neighborhood. Place around us got hit pretty bad but don't worry, by the grace of God we're just fine. Only thing is we've got no power at the moment. So bare with me for updates. As I'm typing this up at a Starbucks.

Thankfully I had a comic saved to my DA account. Wasn't going to release it but not much of a choice now. Here's hoping everything gets fixed soon.

Edit 4/12/08 2:05 PM: Everything is back up and running. Power came back yesterday and Internet today. Power outage knocked out vista again but I'm so use to getting it back up and running it's not a big deal at all. Oh and to mass answer some email, yes I am Canadian. Staying state side temporarily for the next few months. Which is why I'm able to do cons again. Thanks everyone!

Tuesday, April 8, 2008 5:08 PM

Sorry I'm a little late on this week's comic. Been really preoccupied with other things. One of which I'll be doing Cons again this year. Yeeeeey. One con coming up really soon is NewYork Comicon (April 18-20)! It'll be my first time in the big apple so be gentle. I'll be hitting up the place with these jerks. I'll have posters, shirts, and a brand new shirt design. So come on by and enjoy the show! (We're booth #1822)

In the mean time I whipped this little thing up for ya. I freaking love that song.

Needless to say I'm really loving this tablet. Hope I can do more animations in the future as this one was really a test more than anything. New comic up soon!

Tuesday, April 1, 2008 9:32 AM

Thought I'd have a little fun for April fools. Lots of sites joining in for April Fools this year too. I'll update this list as I (or you guys) find them.

IGN Zelda Movie Trailer
Kotaku Cake
Starcraft Units
Bard Class
Feminist Gamers Pokemans
Xbox 360 Products
Assassin's Creed Metal Gear

Also here's a bit of a video dump. "Brian Crecente" review, the team rocket song, Duck Hunt skit at Anime Boston, Megaman 3 with Voice Audio, Soundwave: The Touch, Spong Bob DEATH NOTE...

Also this infuriates me to no end. Considering how much I love going back to play the classics. CLASSICS. Meaning you can appreciate them for what they were and the memories you had while playing. I mean it's not like virtual console or xbox live arcade are doing well. OH WAIT. Urgh. Stupid people.

Lastly that Kirby Sculpture I posted a few weeks ago is up for sale. Little pricey for me though.

Edit: Well hope you enjoyed the April Fools. All in good fun.

Monday, March 24, 2008 1:23 PM
Eleven straight minutes of awesome. Also Dead Fantasy II. A GOOD DAY.

Edit 3/24/08 10:37 PM : Comic is up. And yeah, after 10 years team rocket is still trying to get pikachu. You'd think the writers would have shot themselves by now. Ah well. I am aware of the copy & paste. Forgot to draw a figure but I've been up for like 30 hours. SO yeah... It's not noticeable anyhoo.

One thing I've very glad for now that this comic is entirely digital, is the detail. Previously I was never allowed to go wild with my expression due to the vectoring process. Smaller detail would be totally lost. So lines were drawn larger and simpler to compensate. Now everything is what I draw is what I get since it's penciled, Inked, and coloured in Photoshop. So I'm finally able to do what I want visually with the comic. Hope ya enjoy!


VG Cats Gamer pics are online for Xbox Live. You can grab them under "Blind Ferret Gamer Pics" for 200 MS Points. Really excited to have these online. I can finally stop using my camera to take pictures. Happy gaming!

To bed! zzzzz..... Sonic lulz... zzzzz

Thursday, March 20, 2008 10:07 AM
No comic today, just a bit of an art break this week. Going to use the extra time to actually get a comic up this Monday. Doing a comic half way through the week isn't fun. Anyway. It's a parody of The Beatles album cover, Abbey Road. Naturally this is the road to the Elite Four. Didn't come out exactly the way I wanted but I've got a brand new tablet and this is how you get use to it. For better or worse.

So far I'm really enjoying this tablet. Up until now I've been using a Tablet PC which has seen better days. The PC is huge, bulky, and gets VERY hot. The 12wx however is super slim, light, and barely gets warm. While it IS expensive it's not holy shit expensive. It's also not as portable as the Tablet PC since you're tethered to a computer. It's benefits really do out weight the cons however.

If you're thinking of getting it I highly recommend doing so from Cool Graphic Stuff and NOT from wacom direct. Wacom fuckers double charged my credit card due to a website error. Now on the other hand these guys are right up there with Play Asia for awesome customer service. Totally rad.

Oh and did I ever mention what a fan I am of Schaffer's games? Really it's such an honor. Thanks guys! Speaking of kirbies here are some of the fan edits from you folks. Great job. This one wasn't a fan work but it IS awesome.

Finally are there any end to cute videos? I THINK NOT! Two more smash bros vids. Also Yahtzee, darts are a lot of fun. I CAN'T LOOOOSE.

Edit 3/20/08 10:20 AM: Papercraft Armor. I freaking love this guys work to death.

Edit 3/20/08 12:04 PM: Weeeell I got 3 ring'd. This will be my third time sending it in. Super. Oh and I totally forgot to give my thanks to Darmael for that super cool mini statue he sent me. He's got some new chocobo statues too. : D

Friday, March 14, 2008 4:20 AM
Yeah... Smash Bros came out on a Sunday... I AM WEAK. So started work on this comic on Wednesday. Still it's an update for this week. Since I haven't missed a weekly update for a few weeks now. Oh, I did get a new Adventure Log done too. Slacker AWAY!

Edit 03/14/2008 5:13 AM: The more I look at it the more I hate it. Deleting this week's comic. Catch a new on on Monday. Sorry, this one was rushed just so I'd have a comic this week and that was a mistake. OH WELL. THREE DAYS WASTED. NO BIGGIE. -_-;

Here have three super cute kirby videos... And one Pikachu.

Edit: Went with some advice from my awesome super fiancee and lost the last panel. I like it now.

Tuesday, March 4, 2008 7:34 AM
I've always loved characters who have to express themselves through actions rather than words. So naturally I love the Pyro. I am aware of some of the inaccuracies of this strip to the game but hey. It's entertainment folks. :D

Well Smash Brothers comes out in less than a week and already it's been leaked all over the place. Notable all the voice work. You can check that out here, here, and here. Well... They're all horrible with the exception of Vader Knight. Pokemon trainer is going to be the worst to play against...


No really that's going to be so much "Fun" to listen too. At least Snake's codec calls are hilarious. Check those out here, here, here, and here.

Oh and due to OVERWHELMING requests we are now happy to offer the "100 Kirbies" comic as a poster for your wall type needs. Hope you like 'em!

Edit Tuesday, 3/4/08 5:28 PM : Well if you havn't heard about it from like... EVERYONE. Gary Gygax died. I never was much into DnD. Still, I wouldn't have made one of my favorite comics if it weren't for him. So that's something.

Monday, February 25, 2008 10:07 PM

Urgh... SO sick. Wanted to get another comic up but I just don't have it in me. So here's a one panel comic. Been on a Monday streak so I didn't want to miss one. Anyway got the idea while I was doing the 100 Kirbies. Honestly, just looks like he ripped it off his head. I'll get something more up later this week I hope. I don't want to see Kirby again for a WHILE. Bleargh...

On top of that Vista crashed again. I swear. It's like a weekly even for this OS. At least I've gotten really good at recovering it. SIGH.</emo> Oh yeah, we got a Ferret. :) Name is Yuki and he is smelly. SO SMELLY. But cute.

Edit: Thanks for the smell tips everyone (never thought I'd have to type that... again). His scent glands have been removed and his two berries. He gets a bath every so often but not enough to dry out his skin. Ferrets are just smelly but, knew this before we got him. Thanks again for your concern! :)

Sunday, February 24, 2008 0:54 AM

Well it's been GDC all week but I generally don't get excited over it. Not too much usually comes out of it. There were a few neat things however.

Still alive confirmed for Rock Band. Not that I could listen to that song again... 3 weeks of hearing it is fiiiine by me. Then there's a rare MMO I might actually play. APB which looks like online cops and robbers. Which would have made a GREAT online game for GTA. (HINT HINT) Lastly there's Patapon. Which reminds me so much of LocoRoco and I just loved the hell out of that game.

Then there's SNK releasing the same game... over and over. I'll still play it. Because I'm a whore. Just as I still love Dynasty Warriors. Speaking of which... They've got a new one out! I'll letcha know how that is when I've got more time with it. For now it's looking like a rental.

And two more random videos. Kirby Zetsubou and the Sims Real Life. That dude needs to shave his teenage stash.. like pronto.

Edit: The FAQ has FINALLY been updated to refect a more recent method of making comics as well as a video tutorial.

Monday, February 18, 2008 6:11 AM

Been working on this one on and off for a few weeks now. Now I know they're not actually kirby "hats" but I wanted to have some fun with it. Decided since it took so long I'd get it up here as some filler. Should have a normal comic up in a day or two. For now enjoy 100 kirbies! (Bored? See how many you can guess without looking at the legend. GL!)

Edit 2/18/08 1:32 PM : A lot of avatar requests for a version without the numbers on 'em. Here ya go!

Edit 2/20/08 3:58 PM : Been getting an overwhelming number of requests for posters. We'll try and have those ready in a week or two. For now if you feel like making your own Kirbies here's the template. Sky's the limit!

Also two absolutely bizarre kirby videos. Edit: Okay three. Snoop Dog Kirby.

Monday, February 11, 2008 12:33 PM

Okay when I meant news post tomorrow I actually meant news post next WEEK. But anyway I should have some new valentines day cards up a bit later. I just got my PC up and running this week after 2 months of downtime. So naturally this is time for Vista to crash beyond repair. Seriously, this is like the shittest OS I've ever used. Never get it. Regardless the cards were delayed a bit. Edit: All done! Did three new ones this year. Hope ya like 'em.

Anyway comic this week was inspired by Nintendo's new magazine. Girl gaming monthly featuring cooking mama and pink stuff! That's what you girls do right? I heard they're voting now... scandalous. I could never get into cooking mama though. I don't like pretending to do something I'm so bad at. Kinda like Harvest moon. Plants fear me.

Did my sporadic update of the fan art too. Sorry for the delay. This one was just awesome.

Few interesting videos. Portal done to Mario Paint, Smash Bros the 2D fighter (probably mugen), and everyone's final smash. Luigi's is by far the weirdest... Also Landmasters.

Edit: Happy Birthday Sweety. :)

Monday, February 4, 2008 9:11 PM

Comic now. News post tomorrow. Boobs forever NSFW.

Saturday, January 26, 2008 0:30 AM

Okay I got this from a totally reliable source that this is totally real. It's the final (AND REALZ) roster for Smash Brothers Brawl. This list has totally blown me away. I'm blewed. Never in my wildest dreams did I think they'd use my characters. Jesus is an interesting choice for a character though. We'll have to see what his final smash move will be. Can't wait to play!

. Huurrr....

Edit 01/27/08 4:32 AM : Only a joke (DUR). Just saying if I can make this then anyone one can make that. Brawl is almost out in Japan. So we'll know the REAL roster REALLY soon. Also random smash bros video of awesome, Kirby sings!

Edit 01/29/08 5:35 AM : Well speak of the devil. Tons of smash bros stuff leaking today. I've got a few of the screen shots on my flickr account. Oh and SPOILER WARNING. As there are many secret characters in there. Really it's like 3 weeks of dojo updates at once.

Also the intro to brawl is out too. (Thanks krud!) Youtube (spoiler) and gametrailers have also a frenzy of videos. Searching around is advisable if you're hungry for info. Uploading more photos randomly as they come or until I fall asleep. (Or finish a comic...)

Edit 01/29/08 9:55 AM : Oh hey Brawl Central is back up with all the spoilers in one place. I'm just going to be sitting here and hold out for Mewtwo.

Tuesday, January 23, 2008 10:27 PM

Greetings true believers! Well I think it's ironic that a comic about me not updating took place on a Tuesday. Man though... So it turns out Jigglypuff and Ness ARE in Brawl. It was leaked AS I WAS MAKING THIS COMIC. Uploaded it to my DA account to show a time stamp when mine was made. >_> Also uploaded what a comic looks like as it's being drawn. Just a little behind the scenes kinda thing to show how much drawing does go into this.


Now I meant to talk about Assassins Creed last week. This game has received a lot of flak online for some pretty dumb reasons. I enjoyed it though, a lot. The story switching between the past and future is kinda silly but it works. Everything else is just awesome. One of the best things about it is the world it creates. VERY populated. Great game where I can play it now and then and really enjoy myself. Avoids it getting repetitive too. Which is it's only real flaw. If you've got a 360 do pick it up.

Also the Sumo Omni Chair has become a permanent fixture in my office. Certainly the oddest thing I've reviewed. This is one BIG chair. Very sturdy too. Getting a rip into this chair would be a feat. You'd really have to try and break it. Great for crashing on when you're tired and zoning out. Only problem I have is the price but, it's there for the quality. If you need one, by all means. :)

Also building a new PC as Bugsy Killed my last one a little over a month ago. Because I didn't WANT it plugged into the wall or the hard drive working. No. Never. Damn cat... So if the colour looks a little off in the newer comics... That's why.

Monday, January 14, 2008 11:15 PM

UPDATE TO FOLLOW AFTER SLEEP. Sweet sleep.... New comic. Basically I'm going to be putting out new VGC comics while also doing this Christmas arc on the side. I really wish I had the time to do this in December but whatever. Comic is a comic. : )

Tuesday, December 25, 2007 7:59 PM

Forces of nature and lore were working against me for a while. Lost suitcases containing a power bar, lack of Internet, and the fact that it's CHRISTMAS. Finally though a comic is finished. Naturally by now this little arc will run PAST christmas but, I'm going to see it through regardless! I'll get the pages up as quick as I can. Here's the first one! Also title page.

Edit 1/9/08 5:54 AM: I really must apologize in the delay in getting this one (PAGE 2) up. Driving an hour to upload a comic when you don't have a car is troublesome. Back home now though. Merry belated Christmas! Regular updates to follow.

Friday, December 14, 2007 2:09 AM

Christmas card time again! We've got six cards up for sale and ready to spread the love. $12 buck will get you the pack and here's the best part. ALL proceeds will be donated to Child's Play Charity.

So if you guys wanna snag some cool and unique cards for Christmas and help someone while doing so. By all means! Buy!

Also Congrats to Shawn on his new baby! I'll stop with the fetus rape jokes now... Maybe! :D

Edit: I'm in your manger, killing ur savior... and the video response! Also honor!

Friday, December 7, 2007 3:30 AM

HOLY CHRIST ON A BUCKET THAT TOOK A WHILE. Well it's finally done. Flash is still such a new medium to me but I hope by doing more of these I get better at it. ANYHOO. When you beat Portal you're treated to this song. Loved it so much I made it into a video. It's Called "Still Alive" by Jonathan Coulton and no I won't send it to you. Enjoy!

Edit 12/7/07 6:49 AM: Up on New Grounds too.

Edit 12/7/07 5:54 PM: Well finally found out who made "Still Alive" so I've added him to the credits. Thanks guys!

Also of interest Rob Balder made a mario parody of the song called "Still Anoyed" You can check it out over here. Very funny :D

Oh and I know about the typo in the VERY beginning staring you in the face like it's winking at you. Man. That is going to be a pain to fix.... Until then it'll be a testament to my ability to typo wherever possible.

Monday, December 3, 2007 3:11 AM

Update impending... Urgh... Just taking forever to do this one. Should be good though! :D Also Kitty.

Meanwhile! Child's Play is back up and running. Naturally I'm biased towards Toronto Hospital. Wouldn't be alive without them and all. Give to whoever you want to though, just give.

Edit: I know everyone, their mother, and the creepy guy down the street knows about the Zero Punctuation video reviews. HOWEVER. Doesn't stop it from being a bucket of awesome.

Tuesday, November 20, 2007 2:26 PM

Got a little long winded in my last review so lets go by a few real quick.

Beautiful Katamari. I actually returned this game. I rarely do this even for the worst games. Why? You're basically looking at Katamari 2 light edition. Graphics are better and there's no loading in game but GOD DAMN it's like 5 levels long. SHORT. Go pick up Katamari 2 instead. It's cheaper and way more fun.

Mario Galaxy. The controls get a little getting use to at first but give it a chance. It'll feel perfect after an hour or two. SUPER fun game and HIGHLY recommend picking it up for Wii. Logically it feels like the natural progression of Mario 64. Which is a very good thing. Collect stars, unlock new levels, move on. Tons of mini game stars too which add variety. Very hard to put this game down. <NERDRAGE> GET IT. </NERDRAGE>

Bioshock. Oh boy am I late on talking about this. Had lots of fun even if it did get a bit repetitive. Kill doods, path stops, fetch mission, repeat. Biggest complaint is how easy it gets towards the end when you're maxed out on stats. I do LOVE the voice acting though. Very well done. If you have a 360 it's worth getting but it's not OMG GOTA HAVE.

Also Shawn asked me to mention he's got some cool shirts this holiday. You can check them out over here. Overachiever is pretty neat. As well I made a Deviant Art gallery for junk and sketches.

Sunday, November 11, 2007 6:35 AM

Edit: FUCK forgot to post this. One last shirt on preorder before Christmas. Got requests after this comic. You can save 15% if you get it now.

Lots of games coming out this time of year. So I though I'd wrap up a few over the holidays. First is Naruto : Rise of the Ninja. This game unlike all the other Naruto games is western developed. So we get to see a fresh take at this licensed game. Which is always a good thing.

The good: This game looks freaking BEAUTIFUL. It's cell shaded but also very crisp and clear. Taking care to bring the entire village to life. Many parts look directly from the anime and, you'll be sure to see them as this is a free roaming game. Get missions that level up stats or just follow the story.

Mixed in with the RPG elements is also a full fighting system. I love the way this was executed. Each character has different hand seal movement(using the two directional pads as hands) to pull off attacks. The attacks themselves can also be pulled off and avoided in a unique way for each character. It's quite refreshing from the same old fighters.

The Bad: The controls in game are very sticky. Often times jumping puzzles turn to frustration. Through out the game you have clips taken from the show, they're called Memo Clips. They act as lives and while a neat idea are a little intrusive to gameplay. Would rather have seen more CG cutscenes.

Final verdict; More good than bad to be had in this game. If you're a fan of the show it's fun to pick up. Best story driven Naruto game there is. However if you want a solid Naruto fighting game I'd suggest the one on Gamecube or, import the newest (Freeloader needed).

Wednesday, October 31, 2007 7:41 AM

Taking a break from Vidjagames and did an Anime comic for the hell of it. It's Gurren Lagann in the same kind of theme I did this one. Hobo thing refrences this one.

So Portal! Super fun game but totally short. Best part of the game has to be the AI's voice-overs. Towards the end it becomes a sarcastic, vindictive, and god damned hilarious. The puzzles presented were a whole lot of fun too I just wish there was more of it. There are the bonus maps but it's a little repetitive. Gonna be trying out the rest of Orange Box once I get it to run properly. Urgh. This is why I play more console games than PC. Might just break down and get it on 360 in fact.

Also a tempting reason to get a PS3... Finally got into the Racket and Clank Series after picking up Going Commando. I know I will get a PS3 at some point but I still wouldn't mind the price dropping a little more.

Edit: Flash version of Portal! God I love this game... (Thanks Rhyno!)

Thursday, October 25, 2007 11:22 PM

News post impending! For now a quick wrap up of today's comic. Couldn't decide on an ending so I used both ala BTC. Cause I'm a hack. Also last years Halloween Pumpkin Designs cause I haven't made any new ones yet. MY BAD. I shall try to.

A word about art style. You might have noticed I switched my art style again. It's been a mixed reaction of love and hate. Regardless I'll always try new things with my comic. This sketchy style however is very time consuming. Simply because it involves painting it rather than filling lines. So I'll probably switch back or fine tune it. Not saying I won't ever use it again as I do like how it looks. But yeah, it takes sooo much longer to do.

Wednesday, October 10, 2007 4:30 AM

Hahah. Sonic is in Brawl. So first Pit is in Brawl and now Sonic. Yeah. Who the man. Well not me because I don't have a new comic up for this week. Should have one thursday. Lates!

Edit October 15, 2007 9:29 AM - We've got two new shirts on presale. Meaning this could be a limited time thing AND right now (and only now) you're saving 15%. The first is a battle set shirt. Available in Red and Blue as a little inside joke for those nerds like me. :B The other is a Rat Morning-Star Shirt as based on this comic. Get 'em while they're hot! :)

Tuesday, October 2, 2007 1:59 PM

Bleargh sorry bout the short comic, not happy with it at all. Should have time to do a better one next week. Did try a new style for this week. Painting it really did take longer but, it's good to change it once and a while.

So on the subject of Halo 3. I did want to do a comic on the excess merchandising but other have pretty much covered that. I mean Christ... was all that REALLY needed? The week leading up to Halo 3 was just annoying. That being said the game is pretty fun ... when it's multiplayer.

It's as the other Halo games are. Fun gameplay but it's a standard shooter. It's very run and gun. In that you can basically just run by most of this game if you try. Unlike say a Rainbow Six or Gears of War where strategy plays more of a role. However the addition of FOUR player online/offline co-op makes this game MUCH more enjoyable. Especially if you're thinking of completing legendary.

Of course the strongest point is it's multiplayer. Custom games have been expanded SIGNIFICANTLY. Tons of options for customization and a brand new option called forge mode. Which lets you build and add to maps in real time. Best of all you can share your maps with the bungie community and download others. This mode will keep me playing for MONTHS. Oh and mother fucking Zombies is finally a gametype. FUCK YES.

As well as sharing maps you can also save screen shots and movies within the game. Can't wait to see what the RvB guys are going to do with it. But yeah if you enjoy the series by all means pick it up. If not it's good to try it anyway. Fans will be happy with this latest version. I know I am.

Few quick links to throw at ya. Shawn has started up one of those picture sites for Halo. Halolz. Also WHAT AM I?!?!

Friday, September 14, 2007 3:43 AM

Not dead! Just been away. Back now so it's all good. Suppose I should get a news post together as it's been a while. Spent a few days drawing a comic only to then spend a few minutes playing Dr. Mario. This weeks's comic is the result. On the plus side next week's comic is penciled. Might be nice to have a buffer.

Went ahead and attended PAX on very last minute whim. I mean I was like 2 hours from it so it seemed silly not to. Glad I did since it was a lot of fun. Got my butt totally kicked by Pheonix Wright at Smash Bros 64.

Got to try out Rock Band which was a total blast. Very much picking this up when it comes out. Also a Naruto game that might be a lot of fun. Anything from the Prince of Persia team I'll salivate over. Made sure to pick up Sam & Max season one over at the tell tale booth. As well a kick ass art book.

PA game was also somewhat playable. The character creator at least. It's neat to see the 3D character you create have a 2D counterpart. Caught a demo of the game in action and it was damned hilarious. Uwe Boll also made an appearance. The room promptly emptied.

In all PAX was lots of fun. IN OTHER NEWS; I'll have the pirate flag winner in the next news post. Thanks to everyone who entered.

Edit - September 17, 2007 1:52 PM: Uuuuuuuuuuuuuuurgh... After pushing 24hours with no sleep I'm gonna take a nap. Comic has taken most of the week. Should be up today or tomorrow. So long... That's what she said.

Edit September 19, 2007 6:29 AM- Almost done and WILL be up today. I never want to see this comic again T_T

LAST EDIT- September 19, 2007 9:43 AM : DONE. Been a while since I did a comic where it's them just talking. Been meaning to have them as Dogs since like strip 1 though.

Mondayday, August 20, 2007 11:47 PM

Whee finally uploaded. Had a bit of an internet hiatus so no way to put it up. But it is! Thanks goes to G-O on this one on his awesome guest comic. You can check out his comic Training Wheels here and his Deviant Art page over here. Super jelous of his art. Awesome stuff!

Man Vancouver was SUPER fun. Thanks to everyone who came down and all the staff at Anime Evolution. Total blast and such an awesome city. Hung out with a bunch of cool people there too. JJ From Filibuster, Spike from Wasted Talent, Dave from Snafu, Sam from Sam & Fuzzy, Claire from KittyBot (now with correct spelling!).

Decided to stay in Seattle while I'm down here and go to PAX (attendee only) with Dave. Maybe tour Nintendo and Microsoft. Shawn needs to get down here faster... as we both didn't bring any games. Coooooool beans.

Edit: Happy Birthday to my little brother!

Edit: After about a month of being on the road I is back. Huzza. New comics to come!

Thursday, August 16, 2007 8:33 AM

Going to Anime Evolution in Vancouver this weekend. Gonna be one of the very few times I'll be on the west coast. Stop by and say hi! As for the comic it'll be up on Monday. I hope! I'll also get that pirate flag contest winner up as soon as I can. Lots to go through!

Also two new Smash Bros characters if you've missed it. I like Ike!

Thursday, August 2, 2007 4:54 PM

Going to Otakuthon this Saturday in Montreal. As well I'll be doing an appearance at the ZeStuff Store Of Saturday August 4th from 7-8pm. For directions to the store just click here (1367 Bergar, Laval, Quebec). Come by and check us out! : D

Edit: THE FORTH OF AUGUST. I can't read calendars. Or read... At all.

Edit edit: Mmmmm Filler comic. Didn't have the time to do the one I wanted. So here's this short one... Bleh. 7 hour drive a go-go!

Tuesday, July 31, 2007 8:05 PM

Doing a podcast tonight. I do belive it'll be brodcast live at 10 EST. As for the comic it should be up tonight or tomorrow. Just been a little pressed for time. However there's a new Adventure Log for viewing.

Also in the newz this week. Hacker Groups, and Maple Story. lulz fox. Also megaman haruhi. ALSO... The demo for Dynasty Warriors Gundam is out on XBL. Highly worth the download if you're a fan of either series. Two of my favorite things packed into one. I'll be sure to pick this game up when it comes out and letcha know how it is. IN GREAT DETAIL. Seriously it's fun.

News post time! Sorry last comic made me a little sleep deprived. Anyway! As you can tell I finally went to see the new Transformers movie. I wasn't going to at first but I heard it was actually good. I was lied to! Clearly those wanted to inflict the same suffering on me. Clearly.

To it's credit the effects were really well done and, it was cool seeing them fight. Here's the problem though. That's like less than a quarter of the movie. Most of it is spent on the God damned humans. When you're dealing with a franchise movie you have to treat it as such.

Take for example the latest Ninja Turtles movie, TMNT. Now here's a movie that actually stars the title characters. And you know what? It's was good! They spent the time to developed the characters we went and paid to go and see. The interplay between Leo and Raph was awesome and, Cowabunga Carl was freaking hilarious! So you had well developed characters following a plot relating to them and it was fantastic.

One of the misconceptions people seem to be having in saying Transformers was good is that they looked at it as just a movie but, it's not. It's the fucking "Transformers". Not "Generic Action/Drama Movie". If I wanted to see a movie like that I'd go see Die Hard. And I did! And that was WAY better! The cast of people was faaaaar too oversized. Hell they were still adding people half way through the movie. It's a crying shame to have a Decepticon appear for one minute and then get killed. Again the name of the movie is TRANSFORMERS. They should not be side characters or just there for special effects.

So anyway. Michael Bay didn't create a Transformers movie. He made an action movie with the Transformers as side characters. Suffice it to say I can't recommend seeing this movie. Ever. Here's a comic a friend of mine Steve made in MS paint. I promised I'd post it. WHY DID I PROMISE.

Now on a very pleasant and super awesome note. I want to take a second and extend my HUGE thanks to Play Asia. When they heard that I lost my DS and Jump they've generously offered to replace them. Just wow. Thank you so much guys! Means a lot! I promise I won't lose this one.

Edit: Added the rant back in. There's my opinion of it and it's not changing. Toodles.

Thursday, July 12, 2007 1:33 AM
If you're coming here from the article in Stuff Magazine, this is the comic featured. If you're not. Hey go pick up Stuff! It's got boobies.

Edit: Bleh... This one is kinda shitty. Gonna skip it and have another one on Monday. My bad. Here's a bit of what it was...

Tuesday, July 10, 2007 2:29 PM

These have been in development for a WHILE now, but I'm pleased to say we now have Leo Plushies! Just to head off the inevitable question.. No word yet on an Aeris plushie. These take a while to plan and produce but we will eventually.

You can pick up a leo plushie here online... Or here offline! ZeStuff just opened their first store in Quebec! If you're near Laval and want to save on some shipping costs you can head on down to pick up some stuff.

Now one site I've been following like a drooling fanboy is the SmashBros Dojo. Lets see... Helper characters including Dr. Wright from Sim City, Final Smash moves with a playable Giga Bowser, new items like the AIDS bomb, and a character roster that keeps getting updated... Looking forward to this so much. Almost positive NiGHTS will be in this one. Just a hunch.

By request here's that other worrms comic as a wallpaper. 800, 1024, 1280, 1360(wide).

A note on Conventions. Cons that I will be going to can be found on that bar there
on the right. If it's not listed there. I'm not there. That being said I know Connecticon will be going on this weekend. I won't be there but I have before and know freinds of mine will there this year. It's a fun con to go to if you're in the area.

The next two you can see me at will be Otakuthon in Montreal ( August 4-5) and Anime Evolution in Vancouver (August 17-19). The Vancouver one will be one of my very few times I'll be West Coast. So then or never!

Now on a personal note. In a fun bit of karma and stupidity I lost my DS... and 15 of my best games. Urgh. Back to tha Phat DS >_< I hope someone out there is enjoying my Jump Ultimate Stars. I hope they enjoy it so much they forget to eat and sleep. I guess what I'm saying is I hope they die. Slowly.

Okay lets pickup the mood a bit. My new kitten, Bugsy. HELL WITH CLAWS. My poor arms "2wikkkkkkkkkk&&"<- sorry I had to save that. He likes to make runs at my keyboard. That's right "&" Mother fucker can SHIFT. So much fun making a comic today. -_- Why must the devil be so cute?

Now Magickarp! Use a splash attack! You call that a splash attack? Magickarp use splaaaaash. Team rocket?

Edit: This is a comic I did a WHILE ago. As you can tell by the date of the Mii. Getting a little tired of missing Mondays. Gonna stop doing that now. Anyway... I'd love to credit for making that Mii but I have some weird siblings. I'll take a picture of the genetic freak when I'm over next. "Creator : Science" Zanny.

Edit: EDIT: I'll make a normal news post a little later. New comic is based on that old Hasselhoff video from a few weeks ago. Thought it'd be fun to use. This however is fucking hilarious.

Wednesday, June 6, 2007 8:49 PM
Urgh... Got back from A-Kon in less than stellar health. As illustrated thusly. See the thing is I normally carry disinfectant with me to these cons. As I shake quite a few hands, I'm a hand slut if you will. See I think if you travel all the way to see me it's the least I can do. But yeah this flu just knocked me back on my ass. Throwing up things I didn't know I ate (penis lol). So sorry for no updates, been too unhealthy to move.

Thanks to everyone who did come to AKon though. Even patient zero. Now this is going to be a link extravaganza for everyone down there. Xero, Shawn, Dave, Mookie (who has his second book out), C&H Guys, Squirrel Works, Trunks, Psyguy, Juno, Kris, Scott, DJ, Kari and I'm forgetting one O_o Slip... Argh mind so dead.

Oh an update on my busted 360. Came back within the week. It's like they're used to repairing them. Came with one month free XBL Gold too. So I must say their customer service is pretty top notch. Even if thier products aren't.

Also here's some silly links. SF2 Baby, a FF game that looks like a lot of fun, it is written only link can defeat ganon, BUTTSCRATCHA!

Edit: New comic. Already started drawing next weeks. :p

Edit: Threw up some fun filler but it's not worth changing the front image.

Thursday, May 31, 2007 4:38 AM
Thanks to everyone who came down to Anime North last weekend. Thanks also to the staff and everyone who helped out. Lost of fun. Only causality was that I lost the pen to my tablet PC on stage at the panel. No idea how that happened. Anyway I'll have to replace it... Not before another con this weekend.

You can catch me in Texas at Akon this weekend. I'll have a new comic up on after that. Just want to give Shawn's (who will be there too along with Dave) more than three days on the main page. For now there's a new Adventure Log. See ya there!
Monday, May 21, 2007 11:21 PM
I'll be at Anime North this weekend.

Plushies aren't quite ready for sale yet but we'll have shirts and whatnot. If you're in the Toronto Area stop on by! I have a panel on Friday night and I'll be sitting in on a few during the weekend. See ya there!

Also the Smash Bros site got updated. Just basic game info though and some new music. Interesting to see who's contributing and, possibly new characters.

Edit: Long awaited Staccato Guest comic be up! Think it turned out great, thanks goes to Shawn.

Saturday, May 19, 2007 1:39 PM
Well it's been a bit since I talka the vidjagames so here goes. After the 360 died I picked up that new elite. Probably won't keep it though. The extra space is nice but other than HDMI it's really not of use to me. Why did I get one so quickly? Halo 3 Beta of course.

Been playing it on an off since launch and I'm fairly happy with it. In terms of gameplay it is a step up from the last one. Graphics not so much but you have to remember this is BETA. So naturally it's going to look like HD Halo 2 maps.

Mechanics is what I'm really concerned with. Such as dual weapons. With the bumper/trigger combo on the 360 controller picking up, reloading, and using duals has been greatly simplified. Left trigger and bumper for actions on the left hand and vice versa for the right.

There are some new weapons and features as well. "Power ups" like bubble shields(portable shield generator) or the power drainer (saps everyone's shields and disables vehicles) are two non-grenade items that you can use. As well the new grenade I'm not too big a fan of, it's one that acts like a pipe bomb. It'll shoot spikes every which way and can also stick. Unfortunately sticking is freaking tricky and if it doesn't stick it's VERY ineffective. I'm hoping that'll be tweaked.

I do however love all the new weapons. The Spartan Laser is a giant death canon you strap to your back. Five second charge up and BOOM. I can't wait for custom matches with only the Laser. Gonna be so much fun. The Spiker is the new dual weapon available. Rapid fire and GREAT for close quarters. It's also got a giant spike on it for melee attacks. You also got two new giant weapons that turn you into a lumbering beast. A detachable turret (heavy weapons guy) and a rapid fire missile pod. Effective when used right.

Oh and there's a new vehicle, the Mongoose. A faster, leaned down, two seater version of the warthog. With the passenger riding piggy back they can fire their weapon in full 360. Also if you want some fun with these? Try using them with the portable grav lift. EVIL KNIEVEL.

I do rant a lot don't I? Well there's a lot to go on about! Like the 'new' game types. The old territories has been tweaked into something that's actually fun to play. Borrowing from the battlefield style of base capture. One team attacks while the other defends. As well a VIP game which is far removed from the Counter Strike version. Instead of the VIP's death being the end of the round it's a point system now. VIPs are randomly selected (one per team) and you attack theirs while defending yours. Most VIP kills wins. Other game types are basically the same as the last.

Like I said. In all I'm happy with it and can't wait for customized rounds. Picking my copy up when it finally releases.

Oh and speaking of something that's NOT Halo. Starcraft-fucking-two. Fuck yes. I think I just spawned some overlords... In my pants. Main site over here. Also Team Fortress video one more time because it's hilarious.

Tuesday, May 8, 2007 3:10 PM
Sorry, back. Was out of town. I'll have some stuff up later today.

Edit: Not dead, just occupied. Shawn is getting somthing up for here. Meanwhile I'm pining over a busted 360. AGAIN. Not that there's a Beta going on or anything. Speaking of which a known Crackdown bug reset my character. Fun times.

Edit edit: Bleh, you take too long Shawn. TOO LONG I SAY. New comic. Also Nintendo is teasing us again.

Tuesday, April 24, 2007 11:41 AM
Bah. Forgot what a pain moving is and when they say, "Internet activated on Thursday" it really means "Whenever we feel like it". I still can't believe that mover clogged my toilet with his massive gut demons. That was grand assault porcelain.

Anyway, filler comic up now. And yeah my guitar does actually look like that. Sad but true. I'll try and get some art up this week too. As I have a massive hard on for Death Note that needs to be drawn. The art... not the boner.

Edit: y halo thar Halo 3. I do hope all the old members of Muppet Patrol come out to play when the Beta actually launches. You know who you are.

Edit Edit: Unofficial 'Megaman Movie' fan made video for the band The Protomen. It's a re-edit from the japanese film Casshern. Pretty cool, thanks goes to Paul L.

Montyoum's work is still my personal fav as far as fan movies go. Bow-chicka-bow-wow.

Friday, April 20, 2007 9:40 AM

Bleargh so much packing. 'Mo' like packing fudge, mirte?'. Anyway. Gonna start back into the whole FFXI now that I'm doing this comic. Anyone got any good linkshells they'd be willing to let me join? :D I'd love me some power leveling. Gonna go Phoenix Server for old times sake. Thanks!

Also Looks like PS3 just lost Final Fantasy. Ouch. I'm still gonna get it the day Metal Gear 4 comes out though. I know there's going to be functionality lost even if it's ported to 360. The new Katamari is porting as well. No Wii oddly. Added to the list of GTA IV of Devil May Cry; Sony really needs to consider price cuts at this point. Edit: One of the FFXIII Games is still exclusive. My bad. Here have some Zelda ala Theremin.

Monday, April 16, 2007 6:33 AM

Figured I'd beat this joke like a dead horse. Honestly I just wanted it for that last panel. In truth I didn't like 300 all that much. Great visually but it was so lacking on any story past the bare events. Sin City > 300. Feels nice to be on an update schedule again. I'll be moving this weekend but it shouldn't effect things. Been meaning to move for a while and finally can now that there's nothing keeping me here. It's for the best.

Oh and the Hitler comic wasn't removed because of why you think it was. One of those rare times I'll do that after almost NO ONE got the Elite Beat references. It's a shame since it's a fun game. You can find it in the lost comics though.

Occasionally, if I'm staying at my parents I'll get bored and play in MSN's 'pictochat'. This is the result with this guy (yes that's hawks turtle in the first panel). When I say bored I mean very bored. And wrong. Also there's this. New comic I'll be doing with Square monthly.

And sweet Jesus I need to get my hands on Paper Mario. Looks like the humor from the last one is back and I couldn't be happier. Freaking hilarious. This also came out for all of you who wanted to see Link and Ganon kiss. Ha-ha! Erotic.

Edit: Almost forgot! One Piece just got picked up by FUNimation which is awesome because we'll be getting uncut One Piece on DVD... FINALLY. Thanks StrangeOne for the tip!

Edit EDIT: Halo/ Metroid movie. Pretty cool.

Sunday, April 8, 2007 9:43 PM

I've always loved the old style of Japanese art but, really don't know what you would call it. If any of you folks out there know what you would classify this style as I'd love to know. Trying to build up as much Reference material as possible for something I'm designing.
Thanks guys for the litterally hundreds of emails. It's "The Great Wave" on Wood Block printing and the pic was done by Hokusai Katsushika. I'll give the rest of them a look throught tonight. Thanks again! :)

Also this needs to get into Beta. I'm not one for MMOs but it's freaking pirates! And I love me some pirates. Edit: More pirates!

Saturday, March 31, 2007 9:24 AM
Critical lack of planing in this one. Drew it while at my parents without any kind of script. It really shows. You can check out the (nsfw) cut raws over here (nsfw). Good chance I'll remove this one. I can't stand a bad strip and I hate it even more when it's a bad Zelda strip. For now hello Kingdom Hearts 3. More info on that here.

Edit: Oh hay Orange Dorks. Hope you enjoyed the april fools thing. Ross at Joystiq was nice enough to archive it if you missed it. Also here.

Edit: Edit: New comic... too sleepy to make news post. It's EBA. Me go sleep.

Wednesday, March 21, 2007 9:53 PM
Little back story behind this one...

Me: So hey want to play some Worms?
Sarge: One sec, I'm feeding a pinata his parents.
Me: ... wtf!
Sarge: Well I didn't kill them. Though... I did tell a snake to kill them.
Me: ... I see.

That being said Worms made a pretty awesome translation to XBL. It's a game where half the fun is watching others screw up. Hilarity ensues. It's the classic 2D gameplay with slightly toned down selection from Worms Armageddon. If you've got people to play with, get it. It's local and live play.

KH : Final Mix really needs to come out over here now. Didn't know it had a Chain of Memories remake too. Guess that shows how little people played that one. Myself included.

Tuesday, March 13, 2007 10:26 PM
Just a bit of animoo and moongoo filler this week. I blame Wayne entirely for me using these terms now, and taking me to that 4chan panel. Such a weeaboo now. Anyway on that note I've been playing me some Jump Ultimate stars. HO-LY crap, I love it.

Jump Ultimate is the sequel to Jump Superstars. Easily one of my favorite DS games and it's done everything to improve on it. The controls are just as tight with new features like improved dash and ledge holding. Supermoves have all been improved on as well. Lots of new ones to check out. It's now the closest you're going to get to Smash Brothers on the DS.

One HUGE improvment is how you unlock characters. In the old one you'd assemble komas (comics) to create characters. Slowly matching up panels to faces. That was a pain. Now you collect upgrades and points while playing. You use these points to upgrade Komas and thus create new characters. WAY simpler and makes this far more enjoyable.

Another great addition is this thing is online. Used to be only at cons I'd get to be able to play this with others. Now just hope online and play. I'd publish my code but my deck needs SO much work. :B I'm only good at getting my butt kicked right now.

Tons of new characters this time around too. One Piece fans, Franky is playable. The only downside to the game that I can see is that some of the characters got too powerful. Former level 7 characters are now level 6 to keep up with the manga. So you get really powerful really fast. Thankfully to offset this you'll have stages that use unique premade decks in substitute. So it's never always the same. If you're a Jump fan and like Smash Bros I HIGHLY urge you to import this. It's region free. :D

"Edit: Just to note. It IS in Japanese so you'll need to read something like this."

Now with the good there's the bad. I also got Naruto: Shinobi Retsuden since I loved the Gamecube version. Wish I hadn't. Slow controls, lack luster graphics, just not fun to play. I can understand this is the DS and there are limitations but this is just unplayable. Moves should never have a delay in a fighting game, ever. Pass on this.

And while we're on a roll with the anime stuff. We've got a new shirt in the store. I got a lot of requests to turn the new rat-flail into a shirt but see, there's already one. So I did the next best thing and used this old comic. Enjoy!

-Weeaboo out.

Thursday, March 8, 2007 6:03 PM
Sorry, some side projects have burgled away my attention. I'll try and get a bunch of the fancomics I've got backlogged up and posted in the mean time. Haven't had time to even start the comic this week. Most sorry.

Also late on this debacle with Sony. Who have since kissed and made up. Rightly so, since they are journalists and not their PR. Just when I couldn't be more apathetic to anything Sony they come out with Little Big Planet. Shit. This I want. *grabs the piggy bank*

Edit: Updated the fan art/comics. If you see your stuff there and want a site linked too, lemmie know. Also non site related Brian over at Hookie Dookie set off to Iraq today. Just want to wish him well, keep safe bud!

Wednesday, February 28, 2007 10:22 PM
So Crackdown. You play a super cop, hell, a super-hero cop in a giant free-roaming city. As you progress you level up the basic stats. Agility (leap over buildings), strength (pick up trucks), driving (Mother fucking Batmobile), Shooting (uh.. Shoot gooder?), and explosives (BOOM). Wiping out gangs and whatnot.

The problem is that this thing is far too short. Once you've cleared out the city you'll be left just unlocking achievements... fun. The bosses were really uninteresting too. Find, shoot, move on. I'm willing to bet there will be more missions to download in the future but that doesn't help me right now. The one thing I was really impressed with was the draw distance. See.. EVERYTHING.

Something this game could have used is full on multiplayer. It does have co-op but team killing one guy gets old. I'd like to be put in a city that big and just brawl it out with others. If this game were longer and had that I'd say buy but for now, rent. Fantastic game... just short on content.

Edit: Oh wow, didn't even know about this fanboys strip. Fun fact; I tried to down play "cocks" in the last strip. "The Smoker" was first "Cock Smoker", as well "The Money Shot" was "Bukkake" (that's why there's so many of them). Anyway thank the elephant pose for the inspiration behind mine. No harm intended.

Tuesday, February 27, 2007 1:51 AM
If you're having trouble viewing the comic just refresh. I replaced the last comic with this one. Why? I tend to from time to time. It didn't turn out as I planned and didn't like it. One penis joke for another. Enjoy.

Also, lol Riot Act. Regional marketing is awesome.
Edit: History of box art.

Monday, February 12, 2007 8:21 PM
Cards! Though I don't recomend using any of them. Seriously. Bad idea.

Also I've got an Xfire chat coming up on the 21st this month. Everyone should know what Xfire is by now. Since it's the chat client for online gaming. Giving out prizes and whatnot. Should be a lot of fun.

Edit: Forgot 4CR Had some cards up too.

Oh and I forgot to post this link last week. Japanese translation for the comic.

Shawn finally got his shirt up for sale. It's part of a joke exchange program. That or "Hey Scott I'm going to use your Phoenix idea for a shirt." "Um okay, gonna use your Kirby idea for a comic.", and merriment was had. In short, we're both hacks. You can check out his Kirby shirt over here.

Been playing me some 360 recently. Two games I picked up are Lost Planet and Rainbow Six : Las Vegas. Both have decent demos available for download if you wanna give them a try. Along with Crackdown which is so much fun it's unreal. It's like you're a spiderman/robocop who can lift cars. Then you throw co-op in there? Gold.

Now Lost Planet really is a single player experience. It's also a very high action game. It starts with a giant battle and never lets up. The only downside being is that this is a Capcom game. Being that it'll find cheap ways to kill you. Other than that I really enjoyed it. Top notch graphics and controls.

It's just too bad it doesn't translate to online play. Boils down to who can get into a mech the first. Chrome Hounds really did that better anyway. Rent it if you're into the single player stuff that's short on story and big on action.

Rainbow Six however has a very good and bad online experience. If you've got some people you play with it's a lot of fun. If you don't, you'll be begging for clan support. Searching for a game to play is a nightmare. Games last a long and to join in a game you've got to be there in the lobby. Combine that with load times before reaching the lobby and you'll be joining games after they've started. Frustrating.

Once you get in the game it's a ton of fun. Co-op modes, survival, and team battles. Complete customization of character appearance even down to your own face. If you've got a camera the face rendering feature is awesome to try out. It won't do butts though... Believe me.

Single player is okay. It's squad based with AI that you help to control but, honestly Gears of War did it much better in that it's hands off. This one is very simplified to point and move. Sometimes they'll be super awesome and clear out a room. Others they've both try and hide behind a lamp post. Anyway it's a good rental to try out. If you dig the Co-op, get it.

Wednesday, January 31, 2007 9:37 PM
This is the biggest bunch of bullshit I have ever heard of. The whole city freaked out over LITE BRITE. They also made arrests, talk of lawsuits, TERRORISM, and what not. Could not be any more retarded. Also movie trailer. Since it looks hilarious.

As well someone animated this weeks strip. Nice job. Even down to the super cheesy 80's music.

Oh and I forgot to mention ZeStuff is having a sale on games. Cheap games are always good. Also a funny report on the whole moonanite thing and the "press conference". Gotta love it.

Wednesday, January 31, 2007 0:21 AM
This strip is why I love having a comic. Having the freedom to do whatever I want with it. I can choose to vent about anything, make the worst possible jokes, and even do something sad once and a while. I'll catch flak now and then from people but I can't be bothered to care. I thank my fans for the support but ask that you respect that this is my canvas. If I don't do this once and a while, I will get bored with it.

"OMG SCOTT THIS ISN'T FUNNY. WHAR FUNNY?!" My canvas. Don't like? gtfo! This week I wanted to challenge myself a bit. I recognize that I have a long way to go artistically but, I also know that practice is the way to do it. So I recreated one of my favorite scenes (Spoilers) from Bleach.

The idea was first given to me when I was doing sketches at a con. Leo having a ratflail sword just worked so well. Another point of interests is that Bleach just came out of filler. Now I'm not encouraging downloading, I'm just saying "Hey you know, it's there". Bleach is actually one of the few series that was dubbed well (Full Metal Alchemist, Cowboy Bebop). Just need Naruto to follow suit and stop the ninja team crap.

Now why this took so long. Every panel in this comic, every panel, has been redrawn at least once. Leo's Bankai form and the Rat Morning-star (build up on the Rat Flail) were tough. Both totally new and had to reflect the series and the comic. Few of the concepts are here. Kept on trying to add head gear (Knight, Ninja, or Skullface) but that would mean a Hollow. Eventually he turned into one similar to Renji's. The Rat was then based off a Werewolf as it had the look I wanted.

Anyway I'm all done ranting. Time for some of that sleep I said I was gonna get. As this one took a few all nighters. Also Wallpaper.

800, 1024, 1280.

Wednesday, January 24, 2007 12:25 PM
I am officially giving up on drawing this weeks comic on time. I do enjoy once an a while going crazy artistically but damn, whoops. Time consuming. I'll put it aside and get another one up. A shorter comic. An easier comic.

For now here's a Saints Row musical, Star Wars with hands, and Cave Story music Remixed.

Edit: "MO' LIKE UPDATED NEVER. MIRITE?" Yeah, I love getting those emails. Masters of wit. They should get those gems down on paper. Talents are wasted emailing me. Anyway here's a new comic. Sleep, how I've missed you.

Sunday, January 21, 2007 4:44 PM
So hey that new WoW expansion is out. I hear it's got new avatars you can chat with. Me? I could not be more apathetic about it. I made it to level 10 in that game and was bored to tears. Not my cup of tea by any means. Shawn wanted me to join his new guild. "Not now, not ever." Sorry folks.

I have been playing a few new games. Quite a few of them are free. I was finally bugged enough to play Cave Story. I'm three years late but whatever. It's a fun game with a cute story and characters. Then there's 1up super awesome 101 Free games for 2007. I suggest you give it a look through. That Full Throttle "Movie" was pretty neat.

Also Toyowolf posted this in the forums. It's Click Beat aka Elite Beat Agents/Ouendan for the PC. The program lets you create your own tracks with any MP3. Little bit too time consuming for me but I encourage you folks to try it out. Their site and the program (in the directory you install it) has all the info on how.

Ha ha wow. This guy created a suit that suppose to be bulletproof. Yeah it looks cool but if you wear that out you're getting shot on principle. Not that the light on the helmet isn't a giant target already. "I looked at Halo the videogame", Nooo shit. Really nailed the master Chief look I'd say. Trojan... Yeeeah.

Been playing me some Elite Beat Agents. I must say I'm having more fun than I thought I would. Some of the songs are kinda ass but it's still a lot of fun. It's really unfair to call this a localization of Ouendan. Very much is a full fledge sequel with improvement over the first one.

Notable is the ability to skip cutscenes, better rating system, save replays, etc.. I'm not sure if you'd call this an improvement but those agents sure dance a lot more than the OUS guys. It's silly to watch. I'd say at least give this game a try if ya like rythm games. "Canned Heat" can suck it though.

Wait, what time is it? Adventure time! Again! Again!
Edit: Link fixed for adventure. Never news post before sleep.

Had a bit more time with the Wii and finally sat down to play some Zelda. I am enjoying it but I'm definitely seeing some down sides to the system. For one if you're tired and just want to relax and play some games, you might find yourself not wanting to play. I know I did. Lazy? Perhaps but, if you've got a manual job that tires you out, the last thing wanted is more activity.

That being said this system always works out great at parties. Multiplayer is really where it shines and as such I see a lot of non-single player games being developed. Not that they won't but it'll defiantly won't be a lot of games by yourself.

One neat feature that's avalible for download is the browser. Little buggy but for the most part is very easy to use. Was even using it to watch YouTube video's on my TV. How cool is that?

Do you NEED to get one right now? Nope. Zelda is great and all but I'd say wait until spring when more games are out. The stuff avalible right now really doesn't have any depth past a fun party game. Same goes for PS3 but even more so. Wait until ANY games are out and that price drops for that. Now this is one way to get rid of a PS3 on eBay. Riiiiiidge Racer!

PS. Wii Kitty. Lawls.

Edit: Comic up. I am honestly ashamed for having to draw this one.

Monday, January 1, 2007 7:56 PM
Oh lookie my name is Dave and I'll get a Rayman New Year's comic up too, and before this one. WELL LA-DEE-DA. What a jerk. Anyway the holidays are over and I won't be doing any con traveling for a bit. So expect a regular update schedule without all the filler, guest comics and contests.

I finally got a chance to sit down and play my Wii over the holidays. I was really surprised at how many games I was playing were Ubisoft. Rayman really is the standout title of the bunch. Single player is basically unlocking the party games. Since that's where you'll be playing it the most, with others. I think what I love the most about this game is it's art style. The bunnies are the best villains ever. Highly recommend picking it up.

Edit: Didn't want to leave ya with just one filler this week. So here's two lawls.

Tuesday, December 25, 2006 11:02 PM
Never underestimate how crazy the holidays get. Out of 800 or so entrees I selected around 100 good ones. After that I narrowed it down to 30. From there I'll make a decision for the top 25 plus the winners. Check back Wed for that. Until then merry christmas everyone!

Edit: Here are the winners! First place goes to Kelsey Maguire with this Zelda comic. Second place is Timothy Bennett with a Final Fantasy comic. Third goes to Cory Shenfeld with this entry which made me lawl. I'll have the other entries up for viewing later this week as well as honorable mentions (disqualified but awesome entries). Though you would have recived an email if you Top 25'd. Thanks again to Play-Asia everyone who entered. : )

Monday, December 18, 2006 8:38 AM
Also Congratulations to Malcolm from Tulsa Oklahoma for his winning bid. As well as his extremely generous donation to Child's Play of $859.49 USD. You rock hard core!

Today's comic is an extention of the console comics I've been doing.

Wednesday, December 13, 2006 1:15 PM
'Nother quick update. I'm selling some original art for Child's Play on eBay. It's Phoenix Wright art I did a little while ago. You'll also get the 11x17 print of the finished work. I always loved how this one turned out on paper. Or if you want something right now there's always still cards. Best of luck!

Edit: Gonna skip the comic this week. I really hate how it turned out and rather not release it here. Apologies.

Tuesday, December 12, 2006 4:01 AM
Doing somthing new for Child's Play this year. Shawn got a few of us comic peeps together and made some christmas cards. Anything made from these will be going right to Child's Play. If you've got any questions just check the FAQ on the page. Get a card, support a cause.

Gonna do some quick reviews for some of the holiday games. Here are the first few.

Gears of War - The best looking 360 game which also plays well too. Single player is short but very sweet. Hide, shoot, move forward. Repetitive? Yep, but it never gets old due to being so fun. Additions of online co-op and multiplayer modes help in replay-ability. Highly recommend.

Phantasy Star Universe
- New addition of a fleshed out single player. Too bad it's crap. Multiplayer is where it's at. Voice chat is such a welcome addition. Only downside is most of the world is locked but slowly opening. Monthy fee too. Recommend.. Sort of. If you like the series. Otherwise pass.

Red Steel - One word, awkward. Zooming especially. You're going to find yourself frustrated with the controls. Could have been a good game but instead just falls short. True sword controls are dumbed down to directions. Up, down, left, right, boring. Not recomended.

I'll have more to say on Wii when I've actually played it more. Still barely any time on it. Regrettably. Though this has to be the best Wii Strap ever.

Also I'm really not sure what planet Sony's marketing department lives on. Horror babies, derogatory dust balls, questionable posters, and now a fake blog. Yeah that's Sony's piss poor attempt to viral market the PSP. A wonderful planet to be sure.

Also you might notice I took Ryzom down from the contest. My fault entirely. Hope the company gets over this shaky patch. Until then I'll be sending out some prints. Hoo-ra! Oh update the comic... Check back later today.

Friday, December 8, 2006 5:54 PM

Thursday, December 7, 2006 7:47 PM
Sorry about the huge delay. Didn't get to work on this comic until Wednesday. Large amount of drawing and CG for three freaking panels. Anyway I don't really think this is a spoiler but when you beat Gears of War you're treated to the credits, and a song.

Auchinawa was a blast. Seriously guys super fun time. Big thanks to Dave again for the hospitality and BJ. Best blueberry jam in Scotland. Super big thanks to everyone who came down for the weekend... And watch me get my butt kicked in billiards, Ouendan, Mario Kart, and pretty much any game ever made. Think I might take Eddie up on his offer and visit the UK again next year. :3

Monday, November 27, 2006 9:47 PM
New comic, yo. I started subscribing to G4 again. It was a free trail so why the heck not. Now I've been watching X-Play for a few years now. Sad to say it's a husk of what it once was thanks to G4. Them the breaks but whatcha gonna do. Oh, make a silly comic... right.

In the first five minutes of playing the Wii I nearly smashed someone's PS2. So this site gave me a good laugh. Wii related injuries, damages, etc..

Also Deep fried fish and chips are asking for a heart attack. My God. So much grease. I'm not sure I'm up for that deep fried Mars bar now. I want to live you see.

Edit: Ha, wow. There's devotion and then there's stupid.

Tuesday, November 21, 2006 8:47 PM
Big thanks to Shawn for the guest comic today while I'm away. You can check out his comic Staccato while you're at it too.

Also I got my Wii but didn't bring it with me. Did get to play it for a bit though. Word of advice for anyone getting games. Rent Red Steel first. My first sit down with it was pretty bad. I'll review it fully when I get back. Wii Sports however is tons of fun.

Edit: Panel at 1:00 - 2:30pm on Saturday if you're coming to the Con here in Scoot-land. Cheers.

Monday, November 13, 2006 2:07 PM
Dear anyone getting a Wii this weekend,

Up yours.

-The managment.

I'm off to Scotland this week for a con and fun in the sun. They've got sun there right? I'm sure they do. I wouldn't expect fog or anything of that nature. That would be crazy. Though I'll be leaving the day the Wii launches. Taking pitty on me, a friend is picking mine up. Thank jebus. So I'll be playing it sometime in December when I get back. Until then. Up your nose with a rubber hose.

Here's a partail frame that got cut in the last comic. I just went and made it a little filler image.

Wednesday, November 8, 2006 0:27 AM

Penny Arcade's Child's Play charity site just re-launched for the holidays. With even more hospitals than last year. It's a great cause folks and I urge you to help out if you can.

Sunday, November 5, 2006 7:40 AM
Remember, remember the fifth of November,
The gunpowder treason and plot,
I know of no reason why gunpowder treason
Should ever be forgot.

Edit: Much better one!

Friday, November 3, 2006 5:55 AM
New SSB:Brawl trailer. Yeeeeeeee! Glad to see they're using the SF Command version of Fox. No wait. What's the opposite of glad? Oh right, mortified. There's one level in there I can't identify with a character. It's the one with all the statues which ALMOST looks like Alter Beast. Of course it just as well be another Zelda or Pit level. Also Trogdor being played in GH2. Too bad the guys sucks at it.

Turns out I've got a whole 'nother page of pumpkin pics I missed. I'll get those up later this week.

Tuesday, October 31, 2006 6:36 AM
Taking a break from videogames this week for a bit of fun for me. Went kinda nuts when drawing this one but, in a good way. I'll update this post with all those pumpkins a little later. Just gonna grab some sleep first. PEACE OUT Y'ALL.

Edit: Pumpkins! Man there were a lot to go through. This Phoenix Wright one is my personal fav. As you can see from the back it projects the logo, awesome. Honorable mentions go to this watermellon one, 3D, candy witness, and pink!Got some other video game pumpkins. Zelda, 8-bit Mushroom, Linux (not a game but still cool), Yoshi, OBJECTION, and a Pac-Man level.

Friday, October 27, 2006 3:01 AM
So fucking true. (thanks GabeM)

Edit: Oh and if you make a pumpkin from the designs feel free to send in a pic. Might not get a chance to reply to them all but, I'll post 'em all after.

Wednesday, October 25, 2006 7:23 PM
Yeah I've heard about Lik-Sang shutting down. Good riddance. Play Asia is still a whole lot better at just about everything. So this doesn't affect me in the slightest.

Just a quick bit of news and link. For one we'll be carring Rat-Flail and Jenova in ladies for the holidays. And here's a dead ringer for Senor Cardgage. Robot boobs attack.

Happy Birthday Mom! Never click anything on my site, ever. Especially robot boobs.

Tuesday, October 24, 2006 6:33 AM
Made up some designs for you pumpkin needs. Just Cut out the black parts.

Also holy fuck did you see the last episode of BSG? FANTASTIC. One of the best episodes I've seen a long time. Love this series ever so much. Season 2.5 just came out on DVD too. There's no excuse not to catch up and see this magnificent show.

Edit: Zidane : Double Agent. (Thanks MayuZane) Also Guitar Hero 2 to feature TROOOOGDOOOOOOR. (thanks Smurgen) Finally Zelda Wii Adventure(Thanks Vimes). Very funny.

Sunday, October 22, 2006 7:18 PM
It's over nine-thousaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaand!!!

Friday, October 20, 2006 6:09 PM
So I've been playing Splinter Cell : Double Agent and it's a very mixed bag. Single player is as great as it ever was but multiplayer... If you liked previous versions prepare to be very disappointed. Lets break down what's good and bad.

The Good:
-Spies are now quicker, intuitively adjusting to their surrounding and able to get almost anywhere. The arm band can hack into nearly anything on the map to your advantage. Break windows, disable lights, and mess up the mercs.
-Mercs also have a speed boost. New abilities include jumping over ledges with a rope, tons of ammo, and remote controlled hover bots. As well your light is adjustable for distance.
-The entire pace is picked up for quicker matches.

The Bad:
-The entire pace is picked up for quicker matches. Strategy of the old Splinter Cell games is GONE. Planing out defenses and sneaking around for holes in those defenses is no longer an element of gameplay.
-Custom matches have been drilled down to what they give you. No more death matches, no more item selection, lives, or even tutor mode. Welcome to cookie cutter land.
-Bye-bye mines.
-Mercs have ceased to be the tanks that they once were. With item selection DRAMATICALLY cut you don't feel as if you're defending a target. More so just a spy with a gun.
-Co-op is a fucking joke. The story mode of the past? Nope! Instead of working through a mission with somone it's a multiplier battle with computer AI. That's right, co-op is just bot fighting. What the fuck.

Now some might like these (dumbed down) changes if you're new to the franchise. It's very pick up and play. However if you're a fan of the old ones and are expecting the same... Don't count on it. It's still fun but not in any long term way. Again the single player is still exceptional and, they've actually improved the ground breaking graphics. But with little replay value (for me anyway) this title is a rental.

Wednesday, October 18, 2006 3:42 AM
Taking a break from comics this week. I'd rather have it done for Monday than post this Friday. It'll give me a chance to work ahead too and not be constantly late. : p

For now I made this from one of my favorite games on the DS. Phoenix Wright : Ace Attorney. Can't wait for the sequel. Although I'm still playing the first one. Not through difficulty of the game but just those boring CSI bit in-between the court scenes. I'll pick it up for five minutes and then get distracted by shiny objects. So I've been on the last case for like six months. Damn that Blue Badger.

Also insane SSBM Match. That's why Falco rocks your socks.

Edit: Here are a few fun Phoenix Wright links. The objection creator an LJ comunity for us nuts. Finally the best freaking fan site I've ever seen. The media section is gigantic.

Edit edit: Phoenix Wrong 1, 2, and 3.

Thursday, October 12, 2006 11:23 AM
I guess this could be part 2. Glad it was delayed otherwise I never would have done it.

So Sony started their presale and then promptly ended in around noon. This was after everything was sold out. Great news for Sony! Oh wait. Most stores were caring about 5-10 consoles. WTF?! Naturally this doesn't stop everyone from declaring it a success. Fastest sales ever!... Due to extreme lack of goods.

Of course you can always get one on Ebay. Before they shut it down anyway. Could I get a copy I'd do the same thing. I'm an ass you see. Personally I'm doing the same thing I did for 360. Waiting for a game I want to come out and then I'll get the system. In this case it's MGS4. Until then I'm saving my money for all the countless games coming out this season.

As for Wii. Opening day naturally. It's mother fucking zelda! There is one thing I'll say for Sony. That PS2 has had one LONG shelf life. with the PS3 just around the corner it's STILL releasing great games. If this is any indication of how the new one will do, who knows.

Edit: Massive glaring typo fixed. Flu + no sleep = careless. Also looks like Armageddon is out. I know what I'm picking up.

Wednesday, October 11, 2006 1:43 PM
Sorry about the delay. It should be up for thurs morining. Here's a few things to check out while I get this comic done.

MM over at Fresh Blood made a Rat Flail flash game (Large / Small). As you may remeber he also did the Orphanage one too. Also this gave me a big laugh when I saw it. It's Aphius' remake of this comic using zelda. And totally not related to the site in anyway, genitically modified kittens. The future now!

Edit: So much for holding out hope of Viewiful Joe in Brawl. Capcom just shut down Clover Studio. That's a shame. I hear Okami was really good. It's still sitting on my PS2 waiting to be played you see. But yeah they had some great games.

Wednesday, October 4, 2006 5:11 PM
I do hate updating late but, I hate uploading a comic I don't like more. Whenever I make a comic it usually involves learning how to draw a new character over and over. So I take that videogame character then simplify it and adapt it to the cats (ears lawl). I didn't get the look right until the last frame I drew... SO I scrapped it and restarted.

Anyway today's is on the newly released Doom on 360 Arcade. What's different from this and all the other ports? It's co-op. FOUR player co-op. Reminds me a lot of the four swords sessions from way back. Co-op is always a struggle to complete a level against the need to harm your teammates. Bodies... EVERYWHERE.

Some webcomic newszszz. MacHall is done but not "done" done. Still, sadness. Easily the most influential webcomic for me. Best of luck. Also a buddy of mine from way back when I started, Jim Zubkavich has his first book coming out. Also I'm scum for missing White Ninja's guest week, SCUM.

Here are a few fun links for you too. Street Fighter: The Later Years, Go Go Parody Rangers, Monkey Island live, and because I lost this link in the site layout; White and Nery.

Friday, September 29, 2006 11:08 AM
So I've had my 360 for a few months now. I must say I'm very glad I got one. Despite that hardware failure in the first week. Lesson learned: Keep the that brick of a power supply cool. Still the system itself was well worth it.

One of the best features offered is how integrated it is with online capabilities. I download everything now for the 360, and rent games only after I've tried out the demo(freeeee). With such events like TGS and X06 featuring tons of downloads. It's an easy way to keep on top of things.

The Live Arcade is a likely glimpse at what the Wii will be offering down the road. You can download a bunch of older titles (for a price/points) and some exclusives too from the marketplace. I still need to download Street Fighter at some point.

One of the reasons I waited on getting a 360 is there there was an absents of games for the system on launch. Nothing interested me. It wasn't until I got to try out 99Nights that I wanted to get one. A game which was really lack luster when I finally got it but, I'll get into that after I've played it more. There are however a few very good titles out for it now.

Dead Rising is by far my favorite out of all of them. Basically you're a reporter set down in a zombie infested mall. You're there for the 'big scoop' so you've got to take as many pictures as you can as well. Of course you're also allowed to kill some zombies while you're there too. What's there not to love about committing zombie genocide?

One of the greatest strengths of this game is how open ended it is. It's very sand box in that it allows you to play how you want to. I've gone through the whole game now and fully leveled up my character. Every level adds new moves, health, strength, or life. Favorite move has to be disembowel. It all comes down to PP (TEE-HEE PP.. shut up) which is essentially experience points. Gain PP by taking pictures, killing zombies, and rescuing survivors. You choose how to level up.

This game is a good example of what is needed to really enjoy the console. High Definition. I never thought it would but, there is quite a difference seeing the games run with and without HD. So while not needed it is advised.

Ranted a bit too much but in all I do recommend getting this system. While it's not innovate or new, it is fun. Just stay away from Bomberman Act Zero at all costs. No. Just no.

Wednesday, September 27, 2006 4:03pm
I am a whore for most things Halo. Thanks again to my cousin for picking me up that new graphic novel set. It's a fun read with different perspectives on the overall story. But anyway.

I'll probably pick this up too. It's the new Halo RTS game called "Halo Wars". Which fully explains why the fan project got shit canned. The new one is being developed by the guys who did Age of Empires. So you know this is gonna be quality. The only thing I'm worried about is it being on the 360. Battle for Middle Earth which is another RTS on the 360 felt so akward. Of course this one will be for the console first and not a port. Here's hoping!

Also we've got those ladies Jenova's Witness shirts in. At long last. : )


Edit: Okay, Halo? FUCK Halo. New Banjo Kazooie game. Hells yes.

Tuesday, September 26, 2006 1:23 PM
There, Dave. I put the line in. I swear it's been "I've covered wars you know." as an answer to everything with these two jokers... all month. Can't say I'm innocent though. I've fought wars you see.

Pokemon Snap was a RARE one of those countless pokemon spin-off games that didn't suck. Don't give me those eyes. I'm still mainly! Why I benched two barrels of pure testosterone just today. Any fan of the series back then played this too. Admit it!

I picked it up again and can't wait to knock Mew right in his Mew face with an apple.

Friday, September 22, 2006 10:24 PM
And that's why I haven't made news posts in a while. Got the new layout up. Posting news twice is pain in the bee-hind. ANYHOO. It's back to the center layout I use to run with. Few things here and there are updated. New Frappr map too. Parts of the FAQ are but I didn't have time to update the tutorial page yet. Hoping to get something nice up for that.

Edit: Well it was almost smooth. The archives went kaplodie but it's fixed now. Refreshing your browser should clear up the irregularities.

Edit 2: If something looks weird it's probably your cache. JUST REFRESH. Firefox doesn't like to check for changed files.

Tuesday, September 12, 2006 5:19 PM
Sorry about the lateness. I ussually pull an all nighter to get these things done when I'm running behind. This time I just ran out of jucie and needed to crash. I hoped to get another thing uploaded in time too but oh well... Next week then.

Also played Saints Row for about 3 hours online. *cough*

Anyway this comic is just a break from videogames. Almost didn't cannon it with a number (210). Inspidred by this which is now out on DVD. The episode previews are up on his blog. Fun stuff.

Tuesday, September 5, 2006 9:59 PM
These arrived at my parents place today.

Me: Open it, open it...
Dad: What on earth are these?
Me: It's from a game.
Dad: Is that...
Me: It's a butt, they're eyes.
Dad: You made this?
Me: Uh.. yeah..

I can't belive they actually made the "Butt for eyes" one, let alone ALL of them. Thanks again to the Spore team and everyone involved. You all rock hardcore. And thanks mom for the pretty pictures. ;)

Monday, September 4, 2006 4:07 AM
Steve Irwin died. That sucks. Can't say I'm surprised how but it still sucks.

Nekojin: Still, a guy that deals with crocs to die by a stingray... sheesh
Nekojin: aka
Nekojin: CRIKEY

Sunday, September 3, 2006 11:31 PM
Shame this game only avalible for the Xbox through import. For humor value alone it looks AWESOME. Welcome to the party... MR. PRESIDENT!

Today's comic comes courtesy of squad conversation in ChromeHounds. Spoon's a nut ... and cutlery. Anyway I tried a new style for making the comic this week. Mainly due to the fact it's not very organic. This way it doesn't look like shit.

So I did something stupid in Dead Rising. I got the Zombie Genocide award but, I resaved thinking I'd have the megabuster when I restarted. Nope. Have to beat it. I am a fool.

Also thanks to Jarrod for this piece of art. I love that style to death. Mega cute.

Tuesday, August 29, 2006 9:43 PM
Back in stock! Ladies sizes will be up later this week.

I'm back as well. Always have fun when I'm down in Trinidad. Also got to do some snorkeling at the reef. Both terrifying and exciting.

Thanks again to Nix for taking care of my kitties. As well for driving us to freaking Baltimore for Otakon (which was a blast). He got a speeding ticket while driving back very sick and tired. There's a paypal option over there to help out if you want. About half the ticket cost raised from what I gather.

Wednesday, August 23, 2006 9:25 PM
Wednesday, August 23, 2006 9:25 PM - Hojo, yo.

Hey, we got a new shirt. Many, MANY request for this one. Enjoy!

Edit: Jenovas Witness Shirts are sold out until Sept 1st. As well we'll be offering sizes for the ladies. Apologies!

Also I know about the error in the latest comic. When I was colouring it I realized he can't shot and talk. Ah well. Just one more reason to hate the walkie talkie. The game however is liquid fun. Despite the annoyance.
