New Comics Every Weekday - Written by T Campbell & Phil Kahn - Illustrated by John & Jason Waltrip
Did you hear? Guilded Age is looking for guest strips!
So wait, is HR the God of THIS world too, or is she just making a comparison?
I’m going to go with ‘just making a comparison.’
…And I got nothing witty, half-witty, or even pithy with which to back that statement up, sorry. I blame the hurricane.
If he is god, then does that mean we’re all just characters in somebody else’s web comic? An incredibly boring web comic.
Non-protagonists never have any fun.
What about the two girls who earned Best his Douche Achievment?
We have puns! The flames of our wit will keep us warm at night!
As no women ever shall- But we’re alright with that. After all, we have the internet.
I got no problem with being “the-third-guy-to-the-right.” I mean it means i can be awesome without having to worry about the entire “saving the entire world/universe” bussiness! ^^
….. The fact that it means that i’m expendable and easily replacable is just something i’m trying to forget….
Irony much? Right up there with the old saw: “But this isn’t fiction. This is real life.”
So I suppose it’s only ironic if Campbell, Kahn and Waltrip are couch potatoes.
The physical similarities between the players and their characters are making Carol’s likelihood of secretly being Bandit go up.
Also, if this “Guilded Age” has this effect on Dedalus, it surprises me they haven’t gone the Truman Show route and just syndicated the party’s events.
Wait, that would be too obvious and could lead to legal issues. They’d want to couch it in fiction, maybe hire on an artist and present the events as a webcomic.
OH THE RECURSING
Curse and Recurse walked into a store.
“Haven’t we done this before?” the shorter intoned.
“#$@%!” said the other – again.
God is just some nerdy kid with no friends who created the universe for entertainment.
That explains an awful lot of things, really…
Like American English, reality TV, quantum mechanics, and deep-fried butter. And don’t forget recursion.
POTATOES FOR THE COUCH GOD!
POTATO CHIPS FOR THE POTATO GOD!
DIP FOR THE DIP THRONE
Dip couch. I was firmly established to be the dip couch.
FOR THE CEO!!!
So how much are you guys getting paid to put ‘Lays’ on that chip bag?
It could just be for the irony factor.
It’s funny, I notice the Lays but my eye went right over the McDonald’s bag. That logo gets inserted/parodied too often I guess.
You’re reading the fast food bag upside down; it’s actually a “w”, for “WikiBurger”, the fast food chain of the future.
WikiBurger: The burger that anyone can edit.
Just…let that thought sink in for a little while.
these fries require citation
This cheeseburger is just a stub. You can help Wikiburger by making it a value meal.
I’d really hoped it was upside down, so that it would be my favorite fictional fast food chain Wacdonalds (appears prominently in a lot of anime; Inu Yasha and XXXHolic off the top of my head).
McDowell’s is the superior fictional fast food chain.
Especially because it brings to mind the film “Caligula”.
Pomme Frites! Fries are Pomme Frites!
HR might not look imposing right now, but remember: You can’t spell “slay” without L-A-Y-S.
Word-wrap is my new nemesis.
New? Word wrap and I have been bickering for years – since before “Windows”.
Word-wrap and I have had an amicable relationship ever since the days of WordPerfect 5. But like everyone else, word-wrap is much less agreeable on the internet.
Okay, I’m not part of the fandom for the show or anything, but I do know of the meme…
That said… http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kaoy1QKxGQs
I AM THE GOD OF A NEW WORLD!
now that I look at Carol’s face, she does look remarcably similar to bandit, minus the sly grins. I also think that Best just fell into a glitched zone and only needs to open a ticket with a gamemaster.
I thought the same thing about Carol.
I’ve still got money on the longshot that Bandit is Bests “alt”
EVERYONE IS BEST’S ALT
Thank you. This made me laugh out loud.
You have that backwards. The player in the yellow tube plays Bandit. Best is actually an amalgam character, played by all the others at once. A “GestAlt”, if you will.
BEST IS EVERYONE’S ALT
ALT FOR ONE AND ONE FOR BEST!
ALT’S EVERYONE IS BEST *shorts out*
Before HR was seemingly alway so up-tight, which added alot of confusion over who was controlling Bandit because despite him being the one in color it was hard for me to imagine him as one of the weirdos who would opt to play a female character when male IRL.
I can see it now however.
…and Carol plays Sister MacGuffin of the Church of Frigg. ;-)
God as Man as Voyeur. Absolutely fascinating.
Guys, guys… is NO ONE curious as to what “Frigg” is about to say?
What ‘doesn’t’ she say ;)
green tank is empty?!
But our theory requires Best to be in the Yellow Tube!
HE’S IN ALL THE TUBES
Best is a series of tubes?
He’s in ur tubes, eatin ur chocobos.
Well he’s not a truck
But does he weigh as much as one?
It’s cool, it’s cool. We’ve still guy Byronbutt. Though Best is looking a little bony-assed there…
Appears empty. The person in it could just be small and conveniently hidden.
Well, we’ve seen the silhouette before. She was thin, but not that thin. Even if she was sideways, we should see her.
Just this once, let’s all pretend Syr’Nj is in the tube and save John the effort of redrawing the panel.
She’s behind Dedalus’ ear.
Dedalus’ uncle is great at magic tricks.
At least we know he comes by it honestly.
SHE’S IN ALL THE TUBES
… I THINK I JUST BROKE MY CAPS LOCK.
I see that logo clearly there. Subliminal messaging for the masses!
Keep in mind this is a disaster for HR, yet he is vegging out and eating potato chips while watching it unfold.
Perhaps HR is losing his grip on his sanity?
You forget that before he was a corporate giant, he was a gamer/designer. He’s just returning to his roots.
You can take the nerd out of the parents basement, but…
“Dedalism has a nice ring to it, don’t you think?”
They’ve been there a while, if HR now has stubble.
At least a few days, I can get stubble that thick in a few days. Though I’d say that putting them in for a few weeks/months is probably a safer bet, if the game runs on ‘real time’. It’d account for their travel and death times.
Also check out the trash, looks HR has been eating and maybe sleeping there.
Utz > Lays
Byron’s butt! I see it!
I can see now why folks think she’s Bandit. Her facial expressions really make me think of her. On a different note, can everyone see all of the characters on TV?
BYRON BUTT!!! :)
Anyone else notice that Best’s player is still in his tube?
Yeah, HR just couldn’t find a good place to hide a corpse, so he just sorta left him there. Kinda like a turd in a clogged toilet.
Not so much “couldn’t find a good place” as “Dude’s already in a vat of chemicals in a security-locked basement.”
There is no better place to hide a body, really. The body is already in the perfect place. The “most better” place, if you will.
1.) He’s not dead, the others didn’t die when they got ‘killed’
2.) Best wasn’t the fifth dude in the tube to begin with, fake out!
3.) The vortex he fell into leads to the inside of Wil Wheaton’s mind, Malkovich style.
4.) He landed in Cyberia.
5) It wasn’t a vortex, it was the Lifestream. Best will arise as a god and summon a meteor to destroy the planet if Byron and company doesn’t stop him.
6) Best is a NPC, the guy in the yellow tube is actually playing Harki.
That green tube looks empty.
And God as a couch potato? Beats having the Lich King for your God, let me tell you.
The only wrath a couch potato feels is when someone tries to eat his Lays.
Oh, mighty couch god, please accept our humble offering of ranch dip and an all-in-one remote!
Hmm, green tube was the resident elf battle medic and engineer, yes? Wonder why she might be missing.
-nods- Agreements on the Lich King bit. Killed by a bunch of fanatics poisoning your food or some idiot Prince hauling you out to the middle of nowhere for his single-minded crusade, raised as a mindless puppet for years so that even when you do break free your mental state is so messed up that any chance of getting back to normal is well….what was that old saying? -shrug- Sylvanas hasn’t been a picnic either.
I don’t know much about this Lich King guy, but anyone with bitchin’ armor like that can’t be all bad. LICH KING FOR PRESIDENT, 2012.
We’re going to elect Carl Rove?
He’s gonna stick her in a tube and make Bandit a 24/7 resident
Um, wasn’t he all dramatically desperate to get them out earlier? Invoking all sorts of weird magic with drippy candles and ancient (and massive) tomes and the only colours seen here besides sepia?
Has he given up? Is he taking a break? What?
Most problems in IT are generally considered “ongoing,” I find.
All dreaded Technomancers a susceptible to the dreaded “Chip break”, a dark and forbidden ritual through which they recharge their powers and eat a lot of junk food.
