No comic this week, because of reasons. I might shoot for two comics next week, though.
In the meantime, I really like this song:
New comic up, concerning animals.
I just bought SimCity at the insistence of a friend. I've had something of an on-again-off-again love affair with SimCity games over the years, and I was looking forward to micro-managing a city again! That was some serious fun times.
I wish I could write about how amazing the game is, but I still am unable to log in. Y'see, SimCity is ONLINE ONLY, through EA's Origin service. Now, normally, I think everyone tends to pile on EA more than they actually deserve - sure, they have some shady business practices, but honestly that's kind of the rule nowadays, sadly.
In any case, the launch has been a miserable failure, to the point of witch Kotaku has started their own "SimCity Disaster Watch" series of articles, which would be rather hilarious if I didn't feel like I was being screwed so hard by EA.
But honestly, I really feel kind of offended. Offended to the point of which I'll really hesitate before jumping into another EA game in the future.
New comic up, concerning light shows.
So, Fire Emblem is a lot older than I thought:
Quick sketch of The Captain, My Captain
New comic up, concerning cookies.
So they announced news on the PlayStation 4, and the reception has been... lukewarm at best. Honestly, I didn't really expect fireworks, either. I knew they would try to do the dual-screen thing, because Sony has a habit of taking Nintendo ideas and trying to incorporate them with varying degrees of success. I didn't know Vita was powerful enough to render next-gen graphics, though, which kinda surprised me.
In the end, the only thing that will drive sales are games. Simple as that. As long as they release the Ni No Kunis, the Team Icos, the Square-Enixs, gamers will follow. Ask Nintendo about system sellers, they'll tell you all about it.
Speaking of which, I've been content with Fire Emblem on my 3DS. That shit's cray.
