Thank you Jes and Matt for handling the comic this week. As you can probably imagine, I'm continued to be a little more than occupied with my job tightening the graphics on level 3. So, Matt sat Jes down in front of dorforte's latest update and documented the results for your enjoyment. (I like the new site, Mr Adams. Easy on the eyes, no. But it's more true to the source than any other game site I've seen.)

Also, Deadly Premonition has become the office lunch hour at my job. I guess I should explain... We have a activity at Three Rings called 'Club Awesome'. It's where we get together, eat our lunches, and then consume terrible (RE: Awesome) media. Usually, it's bad movies. But lately, it's been bad games. Last month, we played a good chunk of Two Worlds. We may have laughed our asses off at the expense of this terrible terrible game, but I would not recommend purchasing it. Unlike Deadly Premonition, however. Purchase this game. Purchase it as soon as you can find a copy. The things wrong with this title are just... delicious.

The three laws of journalism are:

1) Inform the public of matters of public import.
2) Entertain the audience, when it does not interfere with the first law.
2) Sneak in puns when it does not interfere with the first two laws, unless it's a really good one.

Sorry about that. But I promised myself with 3PS not to force a comic. (I also promised to stop apologizing on the site, but that's harder to keep.) Got some scripts from Matt that I'll turn into comics next week.

For now though, the above is a doodle I did while I was sitting at the booth at our last convention. Her name is Lisseromen. Perhaps one day she'll be in a comic.

Also just wanted to say that we'll be attending Connecticon this year as guests. It tends to be a hoot and it'll be nice to see George again. Even if he makes me draw terrible things.

I have a lot of things I want to rant about but a concern of how much it really should be posted here. So for today, I'm just going to stick to Dragon Age.

First, I wanted to link my character profile on the Bioware Social site, but it seems that since I wasn't logged in when I made the character, she is forever cursed with uploading corrupt data. Shame. She's really cute.

You'll note Matt's character isn't up there. This isn't completely due to the three panel format. Matt just couldn't get into the game. I blame the lack of Dwarven magic users.

I really like the game, but I must clarify. I hate the combat. It's floaty and unsatisfying. About halfway through the game, I just got annoyed with the vague cluster-fuck fights and switched the game to easy just so I could get to dialogue scenes faster. That's the meat of the game that I was after, the talking. The characters were really fun and I wanted to know more about each of them. And Shale, the DLC character has some of the best dialogue in the game.

Anyway, I'm going to wait for more come Awakening. Till then, I shall stand here with flecks of blood on my face as if I didn't just finish fighting some monsters.

My wife gave me a pair of Heely Shoes for Christmas. They're pretty awesome for my 3 miles of foot travel every day. Took about three weeks to adjust to the lack of traction on the heel, which of course lead to me 'injuring myself in the most predictable manner possible' as Matt put it.

The results of my reminder, that sidewalks are very hard, was that my left arm was pretty much immobile from swelling for about two weeks. Plenty of time to learn to skate slower.

Side note; No, the woman didn't stop to help me. I rather doubt she realized my fall was because I firmly planted my wheeled shoe in a trench in the concrete, locking my leg in place, then pushing off with the other leg, expecting to glide smoothly forward. Instead, I'm pretty sure I looked like a crazy guy rolling on the ground, holding my arm, and laughing at myself for my humiliating fall from Heely grace.

Anyway, comics are pretty touch and go this month as you've probably noticed. Matt, Dom, Jes and I are all in the middle of a pretty epic move to a new house along with various work deadlines that I'm damned determined to meet, if that's excuse enough.

Because of this, we've disappointingly had to withdraw from our appearance this weekend at Setsucon. We've never canceled from a con before, so this decision did not come easy. Our apologies to the visitors and staff.

Completely unrelated, but why didn't anyone tell me how twisted and awesome Baroque is? Sure, the animation is quite rigid and lifeless, but dang was it a good story. I also loved the sound track. Also, there sure is a lot of voices recognizable from the old toonami block... Which, is a weird perk. Any time I hear Elizabeth Mcglynn's voice, things just tend to be more awesome.

Not really a comic, just me sitting and looking back. I'll make something gift related for you guys later this week. Still thinking of what to draw really.

But yep, Sunday was Jes and I's first anniversary. I've never had one of these before, so I'm not to clear on how they're supposed to go, but I'm pretty sure most stories I hear don't include laying on the couch watching Street Fighter. It's been a good day.

(For the curious about the proposal game, here's the old screen shots I posted a year.5 ago.1 2 3)

Side note: I'm pretty sure these are the best use Legos ever. I must build some of my own. I must.

Also: Daybreakers looks like it could be pretty neat'o. Maybe if only for its use of Placebo.
