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 […]

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 […]

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

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 […]

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 […]
