[That's your answer for everything!]

So since there is a gaming-sized void left in my life until I get my xbox back, I picked up Paper Mario the other day, a game which I had somehow forgotten about since I purchased a Wii. I tell ya what, its a funny game. Within the first 3 minutes there was a scene where Luigi got his turn to shine, and it was just absolutely hilarious. Poor Luigi.

Overall I'm enjoying my time with the game. I haven't played a "Mario RPG" since the Seven Star Saga (which was amazing), so this whole hit points and items in a Mario game has thrown me for a bit of a loop, but I'm getting used to it. The game is a weird crossbreed of action/platformer and RPG since all attacks happen in real time Mario-fashion, but underneath it's all based on a RPG system.

Its hard to explain. Anyways I'm enjoying it, and I think its worth a rental for casual fans, a purchase for anyone who really likes him some Mario. (Or her, lets not be sexist. Although I think in literary circles it is considered proper to use "him" inclusively. Or maybe I made that up)

Anyways the comic today got boiled up in my brain from all the Smash Bros malarkey thats been going on the nets recently. Pew Pew Pew!

[Mafia Bar]

For some reason I said these lines this weekend, and Adam and I thought it was hilarious. Bam! Ninja Ken.

I got my 360 coffin today. Goodbye my little friend, see you soon.

[A Guy Shot Through Space, Part 3]

Hello, hello!

Here is the final installment of the guy gets shot through space thinger. I originally had all intentions of killing off the guy in a variety of different ways I thought up, but I had just grown so attached to the poor blighter, I couldn't bring myself to do it.

Um its really cold here in Illinois. Like hobo-killing cold. Lucky for me I prebought Turok.

[A Guy Shot Through Space, Part 2]

Just recently a few people have been commenting on my posts with useful, or even interesting information, and shame on me I never gave any indication that I saw their comments. So let me just say thank you to the people who take the time to comment, it lets me know that at least one other person read that days comic!

Did I mention my xbox is dead again? Well in 4-5 business days I should be getting my coffin. Great. I am half tempted to just go buy an elite and say F-IT to that whole scene. But thats a good amount of money.... money that could be spent not re-buying shit I already own.

(but the elite looks so BA.... hmmmm)

Today I bring you the second installment of the Guy Shot Through Space story. Are you prepared for the dramatic conclusion on Friday? Here's a hint for the direction I'm taking it.

[A Guy Shot Through Space, Part 1]

So my Xbox 360 is bust again. My poor, poor box already had to be replaced once during the great brickings of early 07, only to suffer the boring death of 3-red-sections within the first weeks of 08.

a sad day indeed.

On another note- hopefully, the promised Ninja Ken website will be up and running soon. YOU HEAR THAT MARDUKE? FINISH IT, DO MY BIDDING!

This week I shall bring you A Guy Shot Through Space, an epic in 3 parts.

Thank you, and enjoy!

[Lambda Lamda Lambda]

So I went back to work today, which blew. Not as hard however as the fact that I have to go in to work tomorrow. And if I don't finish up what I'm supposed to do, maybe Sunday too!

oh joy!

I started playing COD4 multiplayer, it reminds me a lot of Counter Strike, and is very enjoyable. Although the whole gun-unlocking thing just means that its way easier for experienced players to kill up the n00bs like me. Lame.

I also beat (finally) Half Life 2! Wooo. And started on Episode 1!

Anyway, heres a whole barrel full of comics for you to make up for the Ken-less week. Hope you enjoy! Oh, and I even included the pony-tail guy one. FYI there was some anthropologist dude on a X-Files I watched this week, and he inspired the character.

So I took off work today because I'm horribly sick. As of 30 seconds ago I'm rocking a fever of 103.8. I wonder when I'm supposed to go to the emergency room?

Oh, so no new comic. Sorry.

TTFN (I hope)

[Grinding Raptors]

So theres a grinding noise coming from my tower, and its beginning to concern me. I'm pretty sure its the slightly-to-large-for-the-case PSU I wedged into there so I could run the graphics card I bought last year. Ugh, I really dont feel like opening that thing up only to discover something horrible has happened. Maybe if I wait it out, it will just go away.

Y'know like I did with the herp.

joking, joking, jeesh.

[Best Buy Blows Goats]

So I don't want to go into the whole thing, but I called best buy the other night and was assured they did in fact have Guitar Hero 3 in the store. I get there, and yes they do have 12 copies, but they cannot let me exchange my broken guitar for one because they are holding them for a sale on Sunday. Thats the story.

Here are some additional highlights:

The manager asked me if I had a product replacement plan for it, like it was a fucking bogus 360.

It would have been "illegal by the MSRP if we sell you one of the ones on hold".

And that "To guarantee you get a copy of the game you should just get here really early Sunday morning and be first in line for the sale!".

Two words Best Buy- FUCKING BULLSHOT

On a positive note, did you hear you can get yourself a free copy of a mutated Portal? If you gots yourself some sweet Nvidia card in your PC, then GET!

And yes, I do believe that all British people do is walk about from pub to pub saying things like "tikkity-tonk" and discussing why soccer rules, and America just blows. Y'know, for the record.

Honestly, hasn't everyone wanted to respond to imbecilic female questions with something along these lines?

So I beat Mario Galaxy. Not 120 stars beat, just 60 stars and overall it was very good. But I don't know if its the whole jaded, loveless life I have forged for myself or what, but I did not enjoy it nearly as much as Mario 64.

On the other hand I went and saw the Golden Compass the other night, and I thought that that little talking cat was just the cutest little thing ever. So my dark icey heart must still have some emotions left inside it.

I even found myself yearning for a talking cat while I was sitting there. And usually I only yearn after burritos. MMMmmmmm. burrito.

I think I'm going to run over to Best Buy and pick up COD4. I feel like shooting up some very well rendered foos.

This comic is inspired by that creepy fuck who stalked those kids across, like the entirety of the Americas. Sick fuck, sick fuck.

[Lets go microwave, I'm in a hurry here]

New years was good fun, I think? Not as good as some years, but way better than the time I just sat around a basement and played Mario Kart: Double Dash. That's not even a fun game.

ok I am off to go work on Mario Galaxy! 120 stars here I come!
