June 14th - 20th

This is going to be a quick update. I was working on this post at the reasonable hour of 1AM and then Pink, the dirty west coaster that he is, invited me to a game of Alien Swarm. Now itÂ's 3AM, we finally beat the damn research level and I have to finish this stupid article for jerks. TodayÂ's Game of the Week is Psi-Ops for the PS2 and Xbox.

GWRAARR! Hahahahaha!

Sometimes I draw my comics based on an idea. Other times I start drawing first and see what ideas surface from the sketches. Last night I was stuck on a series of conference calls for work and was having to sketch in the spaces between them. As a result I could think of nothing amusing about my situation. Conference calls are dreadful to me.

From the day that man learned how to use tools we have always known the satisfying crunch of watching things go splat.

Â"I play the hand that was dealt. And then I cheat.Â" -Riddick Reaper has sent in an awesome review of the Chronicles of Riddick: Escape From Butcher Bay. As he mentioned in the article, keep in mind that the screenshots shown are from the official site, the actual game is way more jaggy than shown here. Big thanks to Reaper for sending in the piece, let's get to it!

June 7th to 13th

Happy Monday boys and girls. I hope your weekend was as restful and full of gaming as mine was. On Friday Sway and I put over fours hours into Full Spectrum Warrior and learned the true meaning of team work... and dying. On Saturday I picked up Riddick which turned out to be an excellent game with a good amount of variety.

Rated D For "Don't Let Mom Hear"

Warning: Today's comic features harsh language and adult situations that may be unsuitable for more refined gamers. If I had actually read the manual for Full Spectrum Warrior before I played it, I would have noticed that it had a glossary of terms in the back.
I have just found a great discovery which I couldn't wait to tell you about. No, it's not hair from a spray can, though I did think of that first. I'll get you yet Popeil. After many months of toiling in the Pyro Cave, which is similar to but legally distinct from the Bat Cave, I have brought you the greatest discovery every wrought by the mind of man.
Would it surprise you to know IÂ've been playing a lot of World of Warcraft?  No, I thought not.  Given twenty minutes of free time, you can pretty much bank on my having logged into Azeroth to complete some leg of a quest, work up a few points in a tradeskill, explore a new town, or even just kill some wandering baddies for the sheer joy of it.  What IÂ'll be curious to see i
As I mentioned in my recent faceoff between Rallisport Challenge 2 and Colin McRae Rally 04, Xbox Live seems to be really hitting its stride in admirable fashion with an increasing selection of highly engaging titles available with variable degrees of support.
