2022 Redesign!!

Alright, I’ve done a bit of cleanup and redesign of the site. Now it acts more like a webcomic. With Forward and Backward buttons. And an archive. Still needs some formatting tweaks in the descriptions of each comic, as I basically just copy+pasted from the post format to the webcomic format. We’ll figure it out 😉 Hurray for 2022. -iRogan

25. Cillian Fu

25. Cillian Fu The kiddo plays his fair share of games, between the iPad, Switch, and XBOX. But Boomerang Fu certainly tops the list as most-played-game. In Boomerang Fu, you play as food. And the gameplay loop is pretty simple. You’re dropped into an arena with other food, and everyone starts with a Boomerang. Last person standing wins. Of course there are other modes, power-ups, and teams, etc. But that’s the idea. Its all very cartoony, and harmless, and a lot of fun. But my son has somewhat of an obsessive personality, and once he starts to enjoy something, it’ll […]

24. Practically Qualified

24. Practically Qualified Surgeon Simulator 2 is a lot of fun, but boy can it get messy when you have four uncoordinated players all trying to accomplish the same task. Pushing and pulling, bumping into one another, and knocking heads off. The game’s physics and network can get a bit wonky as well, when more people are added to the game party. The character and object models start glitching out and suddenly body parts are sliced off and bleeding on the floor. And with all physics simulator type games, Octodad and the like, the controls are not that easy to […]

23. Reacquainted

23. Reacquainted People are getting vaccinated. Restaurants are allowing dine-in again. Friends are visiting. Theatres are opening. The days are starting to look normal again, and I’m glad. I’ve not seen some of my friends since the theatres closed March last year, and I think that is what I missed most. Meeting up posed the question though: how do we greet each other now? The safer, socially distant wave? Hugs, handshakes? The elbow bump? There’ll be an adjustment period for sure. iRogan

22. Domestic Hitman

22. Domestic Hitman The Hitman games haven’t always clicked with me. I do enjoy stealth games, in the vein of Splinter Cell, or Metal Gear Solid, but I think my issue with the Hitman games is their focus on re-playability. I don’t typically replay games as a general rule. Once through, and then on to the next game. The latest Hitman trilogy, which just concluded a month or two ago, are designed with replayability as a gameplay focus. They include 6-8 levels, and then the “story” is over, but you get the most bang for your buck when you go […]

21. Sticky Note Correspondence

21. Sticky Note Correspondence A new comic for a New Year. Happy 2021! Hopefully it’s better than last year. I actually started this comic last year shortly after finishing the Assassin’s Creed post. I was in the drawing mood and jumped right into it. But then I moved to a new house. And preparing and executing the move took most of the month, through Christmas and into the New Year. But that’s over and done now, so its time to be productive. This comic takes place in the wonderfully weird world of Control, a game in the same universe as […]

20. Assassin’s Creed: Photographer

20. Assassin’s Creed: Photographer Drawtober 2020 is in the rearview mirror. And it took its toll on me, mentally and physically. So I needed a break for a bit before I started tackling my wrestling comic again (which is making slow progress). To ease myself back into drawing I decided to make another STF comic. It’s been 6 months so it was overdue – but I’ve been busy (wrestling comic, you see). So the story behind this comic is earlier in November, I picked up Assassin’s Creed Odyssey again and have been spending my weekends in Greece killing Cultists (the […]

19. Stages of Thieves

I have a love/hate relationship with Sea of Thieves. The game has been out now for over two years, and they keep coming out with new updates to add to the story, and over-all experience. Its now got plenty to do aside from the standard Gold/Skeleton/Merchant quests. Its also a gorgeous game. And you can also have pets. But the basic game is still there, and its still a grind. Oh man is it a grind. I’ve been enjoying the Tall Tales, and just sailing around with friends lately. Getting randomly attacked by a skeleton AI ship or two, or […]

18. Rage Too

Rage 2 did a lot of things well, but it just didn’t feel like its predecessor. It didn’t have the same gritty, dark feel, but more like an adrenaline fueled arcade version. Like the movie Crank, where your heart isn’t allowed to slow down. The gunplay was fun, I’ll give it that. Each hide-out or mutant cave was fun to take down. It never felt repetitive. But the focus was always on the speed and explosive nature of the fights, and less on strategy and nuance that the first game had. The first game was creepy and ominous at times […]

17. Snapshots

Oh kiddo. An endless treasure trove of comedic genius. Honestly though, this comic is the exchange my wife and I had, verbatim. And it’s a good lesson that you don’t always need to experience and record your whole life through the lens of your phone’s camera. Jokes on her though, as I CAN post this memory to Facebook. -iRogan
