Sort of a filler comic this week as I try and handle yet another deadline for work. Online game development never lets you rest it seems. I would have asked Matt, Dom, or even George to contribute, but it seems only my wife and I played DA2 of the crew.

I'm hoping that things will lighten up a bit for me so that I might sink my teeth in to Dark Souls this week. It's easily the game I've been looking forward to the most this year. I just really like dungeon running, loot gathering, and stressful gaming. The last Souls game more than delivered that last time, so I have high hopes. Plus it's the designer who made Armored Core 4 Answer, which is a personal favorite of mine. Oh FROM SOFTWARE, you make such enjoyable yet flawed games. Please, never change.

In the mean time, my gaming has been the latest Deus Ex. Which I can not enjoy. It's a solid game, don't misunderstand me. It's just that it heavily rewards perfection and is quick to punish flaw. This just results in my hand never leaving the Quick-Save key with reloads after every single errant result of my actions. I find it hard to immerse myself in the gaming goodness when facing load screens at equal frequency as shots fired.

Power Nap - Set in a world where people no longer sleep, Power Nap follows Drew, one of the few who can't take sleep-suppressing pills.

Bearmageddon - The corpse of a bear/octopus hybrid is found plugging up a sewer. From the artist of Axe Cop.

Battlepug - The creator had to come up with a t-shirt design, so he drew a barbarian riding a giant pug. That's pretty much all you need to know.

Why does the wall in the this week's comic change height in every panel?

Fuck you. That's why.

I watched two episodes of Sherlock, the new BBC series that puts Holmes and Watson in the modern day and emphasizes Sherlock's twitchy sociopathic nature. The first one was pretty good! The second one was... well, the first one was pretty good!

However, it nags at me that even though Holmes is constantly dicking around with smartphones, either texting or looking up regional weather patterns to match the mud on someone boots or whatever, when he does his trick of figuring out everything about someone based on their scars, mannerisms and dress habits, nobody thinks "Oh, he probably googled me just now."

On the other hand, Sherlock's enemies seem to keep tabs on him through his website, so there's a nod to our compulsively public lives.
