That's a pretty nifty April Fools joke! A lot better than mine, anyway. When I started my new job about a month ago, I came up with what I thought would be a funny prank- stop doing my webcomic. Blaming my new job, I've only done one or two strips a week, for the past month, and yesterday announced that the comic would be going on hiatus.

...Well, *I* thought it would be funny. Apparently, I managed to convince the comic's editor, Larry, that I really did plan to put the comic on hold. Here's the email I got from him this morning:

Would you mind zipping your sprite library and sending it to me? I'd
like to take a shot at learning how to put together a comic page. The
general idea is that if I can do a halfway decent job of it, I might be able
to take over the art side until you're ready to do it again. I'd only be
asking you to create new sprites every so often when needed, and hopefully
it won't take too long for you to get your wind back. I just hate the
thought of the comic being stalled like this when we've all worked so hard
on building up our visitor count.

Larry


Ryan's joke was executed much better. I really like the idea of an actual God Mode Online page.

..Mother 3? When'd that happen?

I haven't really played any of the Mother games, but I hear it's pretty bizarre. So.. Yeah, that enemy would fit in there.

And I'm glad it's not from Phantom Hourglass. That'd just be... out of place.

You could say that.
The list is of up-coming games. Mother 3 was supposed to be released for the N64 but never was. Also for those that don't know Mother 2 AKA. Earthbound was the one released in the US.

Oooh! Nice catch!

I wonder if Mother 3 will make it to Europe. Since Mother 1 and 2 didn't.
Heck, the only reason I've even heard of the series is Super Smash Bros.

I played a ROM of Earthbound.. It reminded me that non-Mario RPGs suck.

I'm a big RPG fan... Though I'm not really fond of Final Fantasy. If you want to play a good RPG, give one of these a try:

Chrono Trigger
Golden Sun
Golden Sun: The Lost Age
Skies of Arcadia
Kingdom Hearts
Final Fantasy Tactics Advance

Nope. Not you. It's what I thought too.

I've noticed that I'm always agreeing with Barret in comics like that.
The one about the Revolution controller, for example.

For those who didn't catch the "Adventure Island Act: Zero" logo... the guy is a joke version of Master Higgins.

I still can't believe what they did to Bomberman... if you can even call this Bomberman... but then a lot of franchises (ie Final Fight) got screwed over in a similar fashion.

ha ha. Good one. It wrenches my guts to see the XTREME bomberman... Master higgins going X-to the X, it's the only logical step. I imagine his rapidly depleting health as being the byproduct of a terminal illness created to destroy him. He can only prevent it by collecting REDBULL and AMP scattered through out stages (skateboard can stay the same...). By the by, Can you imagine anything much dumber than an XTREME Bonk?! Hmmmmmm... I'm trying, but I'm failing. Quality Video game humor, Man. Keep up the good work.

No... the more expensive the better Sony will make it. Why I wish the PS3 were $1800!

I think the PSP was just a primer for the PS3... Sony wanted to see if people would pay a ridiculous amount of money for something sleek and sexy that just has OK games and does a lot of other things like movies and music.

Shame on all of you who bought PSP... see the kind of message you sent to Sony? :D

phhhew, i was worried that it would be more then 900+tax CAD, nono it going to between about 800-900 cnd+tax...... now i kinda don't want one. I will just stick with the REV. till they bring out a lot of good games, and then consider buying. I love haveing 100% disposibel income :)




and yes shame on me for the gettin a PSP but i love my psp, games is a problem unless u do not mind gettin inport games and have no idea whats going on rofl (i don't).


and come to thinck of it that is not "that" bad if sony sold for like 600 US they would be losing about 100-200 on each system! so if the ps3 did not do good the playstion branch of sony might give up and stick with games not systems! :'(


shure useuly systems take a hit for systems but it only like 50 bucks! not like 200, the only system that i know of that made profit was the ps2 slim and it was only like 20 bucks.

......i talk to the sony rep. at my eb games a lot lawl

While that's only about two weeks pay for most people, few would want to pay that much for a console. It's almost as much as a developement kit for the Revolution!

Why would anyone want a PS3, anyway? It's just a souped-up PS2 with a funky controller.

Of course people like better-looking games, but this is the steepest "upgrade" in gaming history that I know of... and the graphical improvement is no where near previous jumps (NES -> SNES) Not to mention aren't blu-ray discs going to cost $70 and up? It's like revisiting the days of N64 carts.
