[Happy New Year's Boners]

Happy New Years Everyone! Don't drink and drive, don't put the wrong end of the cigars in your mouths, and don't shatter your champagne glasses on the toasts.

In the new year Ninja Ken will finally be moving to an actual website instead of blogger! Its all set up and ready to be spot checked before I start posting their so it may still be a week or two off, but it's on its way.

Woo to the Hoo!

[Hello Joe, whatdoya know? I just got back from the bloodhound show.]

Yeah yeah, I know I didn't make my friday post. Make me feel bad why dontcha? I was too busy drinking Manhattans that tasted just like salad to get around to it. Srry.

So Mario Galaxy is great, its good, its wonderful. But its not as good as Mario 64, not by a longshot. The entire driving force behind the game is the exploration of these little islands floating in space, and how you move from one to the other solving puzzles and killing baddies till you get to the star. And thats the main reason I don't like the game as much. I enjoyed being in the mushroom kingdom far far better than floating through the almost scenery-free landscape that is space.

Also, the game seems a little less Mario to me than it should seem. I mean the controls are spot on, but the game does not make you take advantage of all of Mario's jumps, a basic in 3D Mario gameplay. I have 42 stars so far and can only think of maybe 2 situations when I had to use anything other than standard single jumps. And that just doesn't seem right.

In other gaming news my Guitar Hero 3 guitar is bust which is supra lame. I have the "first button frets along with 2nd and 3rd" problem, as well as an auto-firing star power, which make the game much more frustrating than it should be. Sadness.

Ok I am gonna run now, got some shopping to do with Mr. Adam, then tonight I'm going out for a friends 24th bday. Woo for slowly dieing!

[Gumbercules? I love that guy!]

Hello hello, so the X-mas has left my wallet a little emptier, but my games library richer. I now am the proud owner of Mario Galaxy, Umbrella Chronicles, and GH3 on the 360.

I will give a full low-down, but I don't feel like goin into any details right now because I plan on hitting up a quick hour of Mario before I watch an epi of MST3K and go to bed.

I don't have my Ninja Ken spiral within arms reach, so instead heres another quick sketch of mario. I do think I'm getting better with the drawing pen thingy, don't you?

[What was that? A tar dolphin? .. Or a tar shark!]

A word of warning, do not go see I Am Legend. It is not good. Well maybe that is a bit too harsh, let me say instead, there is nothing good about it. Ok, well that's also untrue. The sets look amazing, and that dog is kickass, everything else is meh.

I could rattle off a whole buncha things that really make this movie not worth your, my, or your Aunt Sal's money, but instead I will just say 3.

1. Those were really shitty vampires. I mean the vampires in Bloodrayne looked better.
2. Why did we get flashbacks about him driving to a helicopter? Where were the flashbacks of the whole end of civilization thing?
3. Did the people responsible for this even read the book?

BAH. Now I'm all grumpy. Here is a comic, I got the idea off that oldass video of that jackass (the best part is the girl yelling at the very end of that) yelling out the ending of some Harry Potter book to a whole line of people waiting for it. Bravo guy, you're a douchebag. (although I do not like Harry Potter for the record)

[It's Funny Because it's Poisonous!]

So I had my yearly status-report at work. Turns out I'm great. Go me!

Tonight I may end up going out for drinks, or going to see I Am Legend. Depending on the whim of my friends.

Tomorrow I am going to work! Yeah, on a Saturday!

And this morning, exactly what happened in today's comic occurred!

[Ma Pa, our precious ranch!]

Tonight I worked till 7, picked up my car from the mechanic (whom tried to screw me, of course), and then ate at olive garden with a bunch of people. It was quite good.

Then I did what I have done every night this week, watched Futurama. Weeee.

I got no humor in me tonight, heres a pic I just doodled of Mario looking frowny. And he has monkey-arms.

[Wanna Make Shrinky Dinks?]

So I dropped my car off to get the bumper fixed up. Some baffoon forgot to check behind him when backing up in a parking lot and hit me. Even though I was right there.

So I tooled abouts town in a rental car today, a Ford Taurus. Handled ok, not as smooth. Hopefully tomorrow I'll be able to get back into my good ole Accord.

I beat Mass Effect yesterday. Overall it was an amazing game, I actually felt kind bummed when it was over. Like when you reach the end of a really good series of books. But it was also a very technically flawed game, as I am sure you are well aware.

I immediately started playing the Witcher. So far the camera is bugging me, and I wish I could use a game controller, but otherwise it looks promsing.

Ok I'm going to watch futurama the rest of the night. Toodles.

So the snow has finally started in earnest round these here parts. My car was all going WHOOSH and SKREE last night driving back from the local Irish pub (the buffalo chicken sammich is to die for). I like the snow, but when it gets in the way of me going places, I like it much less.

I am still working through Mass Effect, I'm trying to do all the missions, and it seems that for every one I finish, two more pop up. Its semi-infuriating, I just want to have no missions for 5 minutes game! One thing I have noticed is that all the armors and weapons are basically just pallet swaps, with very few discernible changes between models. Thats something I want you to change for the next one, ya hear Bioware?

Todays comic is a little slice of relationship pie brought to you by the letter M. His hair looks silly.

So I picked up SuperBad on the way home from work. It's some crazy zip-boom fancy 2 disc edition. So woo for that.

And on a less awesome note I ate at CiCis Pizza for lunch today... and spent more time in the bathroom than at my cubicle for the rest of the work day. Lets just say, I think I died a little today, and wont be going back.

Here is a comic about things that can be done to while away the day at work!

[Which Witch]

So i let my gaurd down today for a few minutes, and then BAM! I'm walking out of best buy clutching The Witcher in my grubby paws. Yes I had planned on getting around to buying it, but I did not plan on buying it today by any means. To better understand why and how this happened, you must know a little more about my poor bent psyche. See, I consider myself a console gamer... but I have always dabbled in PC games, like the business exec who only does a little coke-y'know just to get by.

...And I haven't snorted any delicious PC game in a long, long time. It pretty much is like an irrational compulsion, but if i don't periodically buy some sort of PC game, I get all antsy.

For today's comic, you gotta do the guest character's voice to get the full effect. Oh, and that's all a lie, just so you know.

Oh right, and also blogger is having issues with opening pictures right now, thats why it makes you download them. And for that, they should be ashamed.

[A wild pikaboss appears]

So I saw Beowulf last night. It left me feeling awkward. Parts were jawesome in a "I can't believe that just fucking happened" way. And then other parts were just so stupid my friend's-brother's Gears of War FanFics look genius in comparison.

Heres some short complaints.

Why was Grendel a redneck? He shoulda looked more like this. (see how clever I can be?)

What was with the whole diddling Grendel's mom thing? That wasn't in the book.

Why if he was fighting naked did they strategically place things over his dong? If I'm adult enough to have to see his ass while he jumps all over the place lets see that shrunken little cg pecker. Go on Hollywood, I dare you.

And for today's comic, sometimes I swear to god I hear the Final Fantasy fight song when I'm talking to my boss, and as soon as he walks away the fanfare plays. Duh duh duh duh duh duh-duh-duh-duh! (wow, I remember her looking different)

[Mass Effect: Way Better Than Titan AE]

So I've put about 9 hours in on Mass Effect so far. And wowsers, it's good. Anyone who enjoyed KOTOR, or any of Bioware's previous titles will feel at home after about 30 minutes of play, although the combat is even a bit less RPG than Jade Empire (Bioware has been moving in that direction it seems). Especially if you're a scifi nerd, there's a lot to take in and get excited about here. Of course many of the technical issues reported in reviews I also noticed: graphical pop-in, problems with voice sync, game crashes (well just once so far actually), and about a half dozen more flaws that would cripple my love for any other game. The thing is, even though I noticed these things... I really, really don't care, the game is still far too good. So yes, this game is definately an epic step forward for the medium, just as Bioshock was before it. Go and buy.

The aspect I actually had the most issues with was actually the character creation system. I set out trying to make a cool lookin BA, but no matter how much time I put into it (2+ hours) all I got was some sort of mutant creature, or a creepy looking dude with a molester stache. So frustrated and alone, I accepted the preset model, something that is usually an anathema to me when I am given the option to craft my own character. Sadness.

Wednesday, November 14, 2007


Hullo, hullo another fantastic Wednesday is done, a even more wonderful Thursday awaits! So a bunch of winter releases hit this week, but no! I refused to purchase them! Even as my co-workers tempted me left and right to rush off during my lunch break to pick up Super Mario Galaxy (wait, is he still super? huh.) I said unto them "Nay, nay co-workers. Verilly Mass Effect doth become released next weeketh. And there will be much rejoithing." Meaning I held back and did not buy a single game since Mass Effect is going to come out soon, and I want to devote my entire persona to its hallowed 1's and 0's.

But thats not to say I haven't been gaming. I got back into a regime of halo 3, finally getting that Major's star (I really don't play it often folks), as well as digging into Castlevanis:SOTN on the live arcade. I purchased it when it was first released, but never really got it started till now. And man, its still a AAA title. I think It deserves a seat right next to Super Mario World, and Super Metroid as one of the three best side-scrollers of all time.

This comic was done with my pen and with MS paint. I will try to use the fancier programs I got with it in the future. So don't worry so much.

So I got this graphic tablet thinger called a Bamboo, its made by wacom, apparently the masters of compu-pen technology. I havent gotten over the learning curve completely, but it seems pretty neat.

So to celebrate my new technology purchase, heres a ninja ken I did using it! (its about poopies!)

[Bouncy Upbeat Song]

First off, some of those step and portal trials in portal are really insane. I beat the game just fine, but man, did they make me feel dumb. And thats coming from someone who always says Library, and never Liberry.

And also I am in a good mood because its Friday and life is good! So listen to the guys from MST3K sing The Bouncy Upbeat Song!

So yes, I forgot to mention. I have munchkin'd, and it is in fact, amaza-zing. At first there was great consternation amongst myself and my friends as we tried to figure out what the hell was going on, but after the initial learning curve we liked it. Oh yes, we did. I would go so far as to say that munchkin is one of the funnest things I've done in a long time that didn't include naked women or alcohol,...and thats about the highest praise I can laud upon anything.

I found this on digg this morning, it is amusing and useful!

*cough*couch potato*cough*

Oh yes, and todays comic is sadly based on my real life, except it was just from a dude.

... and you could tot see his balls.

[Rock Band?]

So today during our lunchbreak some co-workers and I ran over to Best Buy to try out the demo of Rock Band, and I was once again disappointed. Now I tried it over the weekend, and had a terrible experience using the guitar controller. The buttons felt loose and sloppy, the little flipswitch thing you strum with was extremely stiff, and honestly I didn't like the on-screen button things (rectangular instead of circles). Today I let another GH veteran try out the guitar, and she was absolutely stymied, complaining that it was ridiculous to activate the strum dealy, and that she greatly preferred the GH guitar. Meanwhile I was on drums, and well, I really just plain sucked. But again, they seemed cheaply made and weak.... Like the Ukraine.

With my opinion firmly in my mind, and then cemented by another gamer, I saw with great interest that video game blogging site Joystiq did a write up of their impressions with the Rock Band Demo. And after reading it I was extremely surprised, seeing as they made no mention of anything that bothered me. It seems like they either have mighty muscular forearms over there, or had a different guitar? But again, it was just a "preview" if you will, perhaps reviewers will bring up my complaints on the full release.

Besides the guitar, the gameplay seemed standard, there is a little neat mechanic where you can just wail on your shit and go crazy, which was fun, and the music selection seems really well done (unlike GHII). So yeah, thats what I got.

The comic is what I think actually went down before I got my hands on that controller. Odd that it must have happened at both the stores I went to...

So I just dropped 40 on comics, ouch baby. Thats what I get for skipping new comics wed since like september. Still haven't played munchkin, much to my chagrin. I did however watch a horror/comedy called Black Sheep, which is about killer sheep. Worth it for some redonkulous parts, although it coulda been better. Its cold in here, I think it may be hoodie time. I also think I may go get myself a bottle of whiskey and huddle in front of my computer and get drunk to sliders.

Just another friday night in paradise.

Oh also, I cannot stop watching this little vid of the Portal End Creds. So uh, don't watch it if you haven't already beaten it. Idiot.

And wow, this comic is way back from 2003. Good thing to see my sense of humor hasnt changed much in 4 years. Farts are hilarious.

[xXx H4110W33N 5N1P3R xXx]

Well its halloween. woo! I wish I was my age divided by 2, then I could be filling up on sweet loot tonight! But alas, I am an old man, so all I get to do is cook myself some chinese food, watch sliders, and then play the fancy new Zombie Halo 3 matches! So still, woo for that!

On a side note, I am also drinking a delicious white russian. Wow, I had almost forgotten how good these things are!

Oh yes, I did not get around to playing munchkin yet! We got distracted by Knocked Up, which I think is good, not great. In my mind its not quite at the Old School, Wedding Crashers, Superbad level. It was more of a Big Daddy, or an Anchorman if you will. But munchkin will be played soon, oh yes it will!

This comic tells it pretty much how it is- that Ninja Ken and Hero Ray look nothing alike. And anyone who says differently is just a jerkbag.


But yeah Ninja Keena is just Ken with a bow and eyelashes, I mean duh.

So I was at Navy Pier this weekend, and while there I hit up the game store they had there. Spying an interesting game from afar, I investigated it, read the back of the box thoroughly, then payed 30 bucks to buy it. Said game is called Munchkin, and looks pretty sweet. It seems to be a fast paced and silly take on the usual pencil and paper RPG, and I have confirmation from a girl at work that it is both "Hilarious" and that i will "love it". So at least someone out there has played it, and is a solid endorser of it.

So tonight I will test this out with a few friends (after eating delicious hamburgers) and will report back to you.

The Ninja Ken today...uh thats all hypothetical it is. I really do love the line "the Indians used the whole buffalo right" to justify it. It makes me ctm every time I read it.

[oh ho, sick again]

So it appears it is my cruel lot in life to be sick for every weekend. Woop. And of course its on a weekend when I have (had?) plans for both Friday and Saturday nights. Go palsied immune system!

I am going to spend the next two days holed up in my bedroom alternating between watching sliders and playing video games. In terms of the latter I plan on fitting in time for some more Portal, a little Wii RE4, and of course, Mr. Halo 3.

Now I am going to go make myself some soup. Or ramen, whichever I can find.

Ahh yes, and for the comic, I swear to you, this exact thing happened (almost) to me at work. Except the girl didn't really have fat hands.... and it was a guy... and I didn't even offer to help, I just sat in my cubicle and read stuff off wikipedia. So its basically the truth.

[Upside down from here]

So I just got myself some sweet new RAM.... it has blue LEDs. I'm pretty much the flyest nerd this side of the mighty miss. Jealous much?

This Ken is pretty much word for word an argument I had with my compatriot Adam the other night in between social slayer matches in Halo 3. Except the last panel. In reality the conversation would go on for about another 2 pages and end with me saying something along the lines of "you're a fucking asshole" and then he'd say "idiot"

[Two H's]

So I downloaded the hellgate london demo this weekend, and I was surprised. I think somewhere in my mind I forgot/never actually knew what Hellgate London actually is! Apparently its just an MMORPG.....uh and thats it. Yes it does have some action elements (you swing your sword when you click) but I'm pretty sure Star Wars Galaxies did that already. For some reason I muddled Hellgate up with Huxley, and created some odd bastard child in my mind. Trying to investigate how I was confused over what Hellgate was, I went to the Huxley homepage. After clicking around on it for awhile I got an awkward feeling in my gut.... a feeling that there was something amiss. I can't exactly put my finger on it, but after I read some of the information about when it was coming out and about a beta, it seemed....shady to me. I dunno maybe I'm crazy, but are we sure this is even a real game here people? I mean I've never actually seen it myself, have you?..... hmmmm Duke Nukem?

In this Ken we see a fantasy every man shares come to life. Or at least this man shares... uh with himself.

[Really Ugly Kids]

So I got myself a haircut, and while I was in the neighborhood I stopped by the cheap pizza slice place. And what I saw there made me lose my appetite faster than watching naked sumos foot-fucking (well not really, I mean thats pretty extreme yo). I saw a group of maybe 5 or 6 of the ugliest people I have ever seen in my life. These ugs had it all; acne, long greasy ponytails, horsefaces, and I swear to the christ one of them had a hunchback. A fucking HUNCHBACK. I was half expecting the little animated gargoyles from the Disney movie to jump out from around a corner and start serenading me.

And if by all stretches of the imagination a hunch-ee happens to be reading this, don't worry, this guy was smelly too. At least you don't have that affliction as well my rolly friend.

I found the scanner software, so heres something short and stupid on graph paper. Is this called graph paper? ... whatever.

[Sexy, Orange, Box]

Hey hey, I still cannot locate the blasted software for my scanner, so I am afraid I am going to have nothing but measly MS paint scraps for you. I sorry. I know that personally if I had a handy dandy portal gun thinger I would never get out of my seat... for anything.

So I beat Halo 3's campaign a while ago, and overall... I don't know. It left me feeling empty inside, like after you pay for sex. I mean, sure the sex (campaign) was good, but now that I'm spent, and my wallet is a little lighter, I ask myself, was that it? The whole bungie splitting off from microsoft thing does nothing to make this feeling go away, all it does is make me feel more uncomfortable.

Oh in other Ninja Ken news, I may have found someone with a firmer grasp on internetting to throw together an official, grown up website for me. So keep your ears peeled, Ken might be moving to greener pastures sometime in the near future.

[im sorry i took your kill?]

Halo 3 multiplayer is very good. Is it the best multiplayer ever? I am not one to say. Is it the most fun I have had in multilayer since halo 2 first ruined my college career? Yes, yes it is.

I am going to get some solo campaigning in in a few, then later on tonight I am sure I will co-op it with Adam.

So yes, bottom line is so far the hype has been up-lived. Go play it baby.

Oh yes, one thing I thought was funny was after I had won a lonewolf of slayer, I won with 24 kills, and I had a +10 spread, at the end of the game the second place guy yelled at me for not getting my own kills...and he had 16 or so I think. Ummm, forgive me if I'm mistaken douchebag, but I'm pretty sure you're supposed to get as many kills as you can, not avoid shooting someone while another person is as well. Silly little jerkbag.

Monday, September 24, 2007


Well the day is finally here. Halo 3 comes out in about 7 hours, and I will be lined up with the rest of the nerds at my local ex-EB.

I started reading the graphic novel Watchmen, I haven't touched it since I last read it which was probably around 2001 or so. I was quickly reminded at how great a story it is. Really, damn. I am excited and frightened by the aspect of a movie based upon its pages. I don't know how it could be done justice in 2-3 hours.

I gotta end this, I am too excited for Halo 3. I'll let you suckers who aren't getting it know how it is. Laters.

And wouldn't it be sweet if there was some sort of Thong-Mode unlockable in halo 3 for Masterchief? Wait... replace Masterchief with Cortana. And then replace her with a real woman. And put her in my bed.

Yeahhhhh thats one sweet unlockable.

[jewel osco]

man I am so excited, as we speak I have a thin crust sausage pizza brewin in the oven, and I'm just about bursting with anticipation. not like the rocky horror picture show-anticipation, like the gastric kind. mmm mmmm. and while I eat I am going to watch Chronicles of Riddick, not a good movie mind you, but a big,dumb movie, and I am in a big, dumb mood.

Yes, Halo 3 comes out soon, as I am sure at least 66% of the population realizes (although a good 14% most likely think it has something to do with the Jesus, and unless its actually the messiah underneath that helmet, they're wrong) and I am quite thrilled with the idea. I as well as some close associates all felt that the whole Everyone gets a battlerifle style of gameplay pretty much broke the multiplayer in halo 2, and reduced the entire game to distance-play. But if the beta is any indication of the final product, it seems to be a little more logically balanced.

But I hear my pizza beeping, time for me to eat!

This comic was originally going to end in something more carnal, but i figured romance was the more hilarious option.

[stupid zoras]

I ask you, what is with the water temples in Zelda and being confusing? I thought the temple in Ocarina of Time was rough, then I spent what felt like a year of my life scratching my head in Twilight Princess. Man water temple, you put me in my place.

I am now the happy owner of the ultimate edition of Vista! ....

But Im kinda scared to use it. I need to look a little more into the whole program compatibility thing. Like does Foobar work? How about sharecrow or utorrent?

Can you tell this comic was drawn using a real wooden pencil instead of a mechanical one? Um. Because it was. Oh and no my boss looks nothing like that, but man I wish he wore a sweet little hat!

[business trip]

I just got back today from Wisconsin I went there Tuesday morning for work. I had a sweet night at the hotel. I bought myself some beer, ate a stuffed pizza, made a bubble bath (with very hot water), and then sat in the bubble bath, drinking. ...

And then I watched legally blonde 2 on my zune.

hehehe, ok ok so I only watched about 5 minutes. The original plan was to watch the entire movie in the bathtub and to keep drinking, but I cut it short for several reasons:
1. The water was so hot I was sweating (have you ever sweat while in water? its freaking bizarre).
2. An hour of the office started on tbs and I wanted to watch it real bad.
3. And I was deathly afraid I would drop my zune in the tub and ruin it.

Wow. ok I'm beat. I think I am going to go to bed.

Went to Wrigleyville over the weekend with some of my closest friends, and antics ensued. I had never been there before, so it was neato, plus there were some Hawkeye bars which was fun.

Tonight I am going to go to 7-11 and get one of those Halo 3 slushees, then hit up best buy. I have 100 dollars worth of a gift card, and I'm gonna waste it on something software-ish that is going to make me giggle like a little schoolgirl on free ludens cough drop day.

I bought the much anticipated (at least by me) It's Always Sunny in Philidelphia dvd set, and OH MAN, I had almost forgotten how amazing that show is. While reviewing in my head what TV DVDS I had purchased I decided that I have an awesome lineup. Here it is:

Futurama S 2 and 4
Seinfeld S1 and 2
Numerous MST3K Episodes and seasons
Its Always Sunny in Philidelphia S1 and 2
Firefly series

man all I need is some Quantum Leap, Star Trek TNG, and Sliders and I might have the most awesome assortment of television on dvd EVAR.

and the comic? yeah, well gross things sometimes happen to good people.

[i love labor day]

Man that weekend was nice, not that I did anything much exciting. Well I did visit a college bud in Chicago, and we ended up drinking at a few bars (one was like an Eastern European bar, and another was a cowboy bar), and then finished the night off by throwing stuff at a gigantic spider. But besides that all I did was waste oxygen.

I beat Bioshock, I thought the endboss was too easy, and the ending was a little subpar (I went no-harvesting) I think that after I beat it the other way, I will feel better about the entire package that is the game. Are there other endings besides those two? I am not sure.

Phil and the now-named goomba Ed appear in todays comic. Those poor guys are always walking, makes me winded just looking at them.

[One last Big Daddy]

So I thought I was going to be able to beat Bioshock Wednesday. But no, instead of less than 3 hours of play time, there was closer to 6. So as soon as I am done with this post I am going to throw a Tombstone in the oven, and go hit it up.

Every Thursday night I go out with my friends to a bar/restaurant. And sometimes I find myself staying out far too late, and drinking too much for a work night. And that usually leaves me feeling much like poor Ninja Ken in today's comic.

Wednesday, August 29, 2007

[I wish it were true]

So I have 3 stages left in Bioshock. Oh man, I am SO going to beat it tonight! YOU HEAR ME RYAN?! I'M ON YOUR DOORSTEP!!!!

I really am excited to see where this story is going to go. Is the main character Ryan's son? Was he infused with plasmids during conception so that he resists plasmid poisoning? Whats with his tats?

Oh man oh man oh man, I'm going to cook myself a chicken kiev, then finish this.

Is there a Wii Castlevania on its way? Not as far as I know, but it would be sweet. And I chortle to myself every time I read "360 degrees of whip support" hehehe.

[fun places to poo]

I stayed late at work today and didn't get much sleep because I stayed up watching hot fuzz last night (after I went to see superbad for the 2nd time), so I'm tired, and therefore am going to go take a nap.

so there.

this comic actually happened to me, I grabbed a loose roll of TP, took a handful off, removed my hand from the tube to discover that it was now covered in shit. who fuckin does that kind of thing in an office bathroom? fuck if I know.

[I Love It When You Call Me Big Papa]

So, as you may recall I like Bioshock. I like Bioshock so much, that it made me stop shaking my way through Zelda. And I love Zelda. I love Zelda HARD.

Nothing much to say really, I am going to go eat some shrimp and play more. Later tonight I am going to watch Vacancy, oh that Luke Wilson's such a dreamboat.

Todays comic took me forever and a day to do. I literally sat (at work) daydreaming for several hours about what it would be like to be a Big Daddy, the poor guys. I think it would be like going shopping with one of those annoying daddy's girls we all knew in high school. Shes never happy, and she always wants this and that and the other thing, and always with the talking, talking, talking.

Basically, it would be hell.

I actually drew the comic on 3 normal pieces of computer paper, then Frankensteined them together, so if it looks a little funky thats why.

Man, poor Big Daddy.

First off a big thank you to both Joystiq, and the people who voted for my goomba comic from last week, netting it a cool first place in Joystiq's weekly contest. For those of you who may be new to the site, hello, hi, welcome, please sit back and stay a spell.

Ok so yes I got the limited edition of Bioshock, and of course my Big Daddy has a broken drill bit. Le Fuck. The thing is, only about 3 mm^2 worth of drill are missing, which makes me wonder if it would be worthwhile to try and send it back in. Of course I would love the free art book that 2K is handing out to people with broken Big Daddy's, but thats a whole lot of effort. Plus I don't know if they will even believe me considering how small the chip is. So I am in a quandary.

The game however, oh the game. The game in a word, is breathtaking. If you have not bought it, and you have a PC or Xbox 360, go, go buy it right now. The only people who would not appreciate such a gem are the people who own consoles only so that they can simulate college sports, and well, if you're one of those people you probably won't be reading this anyways.

I wont go into details seeing as there are plenty of very good reviews out there. I will just say that the atmosphere in this thing is more powerful than everclear- and its gonna knock you right on your nerdy ass.

Yeah I realized shortly after I had posted last week that I duplicated a comic from the week before. Sorry, I'm not perfect- ask any of my ex girlfriends.

(although I mean the sex was always great right ladies???... ladies?... .... damn)

Todays comic is a little ditty inspired by the new season of Dirty Jobs, which is a fantastic show. I plan on having a Bioshock comic ready for Friday, I just need to let the juices flow a bit on it... and also I really want to go get some time in on it!

This wont be a long post, because good ole Adam and I are off to a bar to drink some whiskeys and play erotic photo hunt. The words "Nachos" were also used in possible consumptionary terms, which I find quite titillating.

Moving in with a girlfriend? Think it through yo, thats all I'm saying.
