Comic description

This webcomic dedicates itself to parodying the funny and illogical parts of games. It also sometimes dabbles in the problematic lives of the average (or rather extreme) gamer. You'll probably need an acquired taste, but give it a try, you might just like it.


I'm awesome, let's leave it at that.

Well that was unexpected.

The story about what my Vault 131 was supposed to be experimenting, was originally a little more complex. But I felt that obscured the joke a bit, so I shortened it.

As for it being called Vault 131, that I made up on the spot. I think my original idea was to use Vault 03.

Here's hoping Vault 131 doesn't actually exist in the games though. *crosses fingers*

And so begins a five part story, which I wrote years ago to parody a similar story that Penny Arcade made, which again was many years prior to me writing my parody.

But with many years of experience under my belt, I've managed to reword a few places and do a much better job at creating the panels as I envisioned.

The original reason I never made this a comic many years ago though, was because I didn't think it was very good. Now though, my threshold for a passable comic strip has lowered considerably. Add to that, that I needed to get myself four or more comics ahead again, and it only made sense to finally make that multi-part story that I came up with all those years ago.

It might take over a month, but stick with it. The ending is worth it for the laugh alone.

And personally, I think the individual comics are funny in their own right. Just nowhere near as much as the final punchline.

I honestly do not understand how anyone can prefer this game over the Tony Hawk's series (only counting the Neversoft titles of course).

What's the point of playing a skateboarding game if you can only keep a grind going for a few seconds, and only jump a few feet off the ground. If it's going to be that realistic, you may as well get out there and skate for real.

I suppose I can see the appeal. And I have started to get good at the game. But each time I play it, I just think to myself "why aren't I playing one of the much better and older Tony Hawk games?"

I still can't make heads or tails of the scoring system as well. You can do a nice long combo, with lots of different tricks, and get only a thousand points. But on the other hand you can just barely touch a rail and suddenly get 600 points or more.

I also really dislike how easy it is to ragdoll. As this comic shows, you can just briefly brush your arm against a wall, and then instantly ragdoll as though your skater suddenly gave up on life. It's funny, but ultimately a bit annoying.

I don't like how they instantly teleport back onto their skateboard too. I'd much prefer it if they got back up and used the force to make their skateboard come to them. You know, like all of the Tony Hawk games. Yeah, little things like that do make a difference.

I like the markers you can place though, so you can instantly retry a trick you're trying to do. Those are nice. And I also really like the map layout. I just wish I could play that map on one of the Tony Hawk engines.

How about Halloween, it even has the psychiatrist unload an entire clip into Michael Myers. The only dumb thing I can think of in that film, is that Michael Myers was even let out to roam about outside in the first place.
That being said, I do realise all horror films have a complete lack of common sense in them. The main character usually has some though, because you're supposed to relate to them.

But in my defence, I said it would have been a lot better by having common sense in it, because it would have made it shorter and thus you wouldn't have to sit through it as long. Although I should have probably written it like that.

I challenge you to name any horror movie that doesn't have characters that fail to do some basic thing that would make their lives so much easier (and likewise the movie much shorter).
