RevolvingDork The guys in marketing must be throwing up

It is extremely difficult to make fun of things that are already patently ridiculous.

You see that second-to-last panel? Ken Kutaragi ACTUALLY SAID THAT.

Regardless of the amount of sex, violence, and or drug use developers cram into their games, they will never attain the shock value that simply listening to other humans online provides.

More game violence news oversaturation this week. It's starting to get *really* old.

Meteos is fairly awesome. It reminds me of my favorite puzzle game of all time, Tetris Attack, except you move blocks vertically rather than horizontally.

Also, it involves a few more rockets.

Moral of the story: Meteos is fantastic, and so is Yakov.

I'm more or less in the "swing" of writing new comics weekly.

This one was inspired by an essay on game violence written by a former Columbine High School student. I think he missed the mark a bit, but there are some thought-provoking ideas in there.

The first panel of this comic is pretty much an accurate transcription of an event that transpired two weeks ago.

I haven't been able to move to the new host yet, so please bear with the service outages until I do.

This comic was supposed to go up last night, but my host went down for *several hours*. I'm in the process of switching to a much more reliable host this week, so hopefully this sort of thing won't happen again.

Apologies for missing an entry last week, work was killer. To compensate, this week's comic is long as hell.

Apologies for the strip's mild lateness, I've been working for 3 days straight.

This one stems from the ceaseless arguments -- many occuring RIGHT NOW, AS YOU READ THIS -- about the merits of playing "mature" games over "kiddie" games.

RevolvingDork Couch shopping is hard

After an extended hiatus, I'm updating the site again -- this time, with regularity. Here's the official announcement: New comics will be posted here EVERY THURSDAY.

Though it is nearing completion, the process of settling into our new Philadelphia apartment has proven to be far more arduous than either me or Lara had originally conceived.

I'm undecided on whether the procedure for purchasing a new couch suffers from 1.) a lack of planning on the part of retailers or 2.) an abundance of careful planning carried out by a twisted engineer of commerce who inexplicably despises all who desire to sit down comfortably.

In gaming news: Hey, E3 was last week.

Sony spent the bulk of their time hyping the next Playstation beyond the reaches of mortal man, as is their custom.

Nintendo's plans for the future remain shrouded in a dark cloud of mystery, as is their custom.

In a deviation from their (albeit short) console tradition, Microsoft revealed that their next console would be slightly smaller than the average microwave.

Meanwhile, I found Star Wars Episode III so enjoyable that I went out and bought Rogue Squadron II for old time's sake.

It is still very hard.
