Fresh comic next time. Thanks for your patience.
My favorite co-op game is the Silent Hill series. My job is to play the game, her job is to be really scared.
Scott, you rock!
Panel 1 made me literally laugh out loud.
I forgot about this one... the final panel got me laughing pretty hard.
Really loving how you drew Missy.
Just as awesome the second time around...and I could swear the last panel is a "Paperboy" reference.
Sounds like they're playing Paperboy?
Good job - all 4 panels are great! Well worth the recycle.
LOOK OUT FOR THAT SHRUB BEHIND YOU!!!!!!!
Panel 3: pure gold as always.
For some reason, I have the feeling that they're playing I Wanna Be the Guy in the last panel. In that game, EVERYTHING can kill you. Even Tetris.
Wow, I totally missed the moustache wire the first time around. Makes it even more hilarious. Sometimes I wish my SO would play games (of the computer sort) with me, but somehow, I doubt that her "mad" Mahjongg and Spider Solitaire skillz would translate well to first-person shooters. (Honey, really, just think of those bad Nazi/alien/mutant Nazi guys as a Mahjongg tile for which your magazine holds the matching tile...)
First time around, I never played (and had difficulty being the spotter, as the environments made me dizzy). BUT NOW I TOTALLY WANT THE MUSTACHE that comes with RB:H&O!
great rerun, Scott. thanks!
The third and fourth panels are made of win, as usual.
Scott,Ever consider giving your character different color pants? It looks like he's sitting on the couch with nothing on from the waist down. The lady readers of the strip might enjoy that, but not all of us...
Life Force is another game where touching almost anything will kill you. But since it involves space jets, there's a partial excuse.
Ha... loved it again the second time. The wire, which presumably connects the mustache to the game console, is comic genius.
I think I love Missy, just for wearing that moustache. Even if it's not in real life. Ordinarily, as a straight woman, I love Scott.
I used to have a mustache. I'd grow one again if I could use it as a game controller!
A cunning double re-run Scott. You reaaet the comic, and you get a repeat of the paper boy and mustache comments too....a twofer.
This made me laugh so much! Thanks, Scott!
"BDARG!"Thanks for re-running this one, Scott!
