>Vidya comics we found to be actually humorous/funny
>Hard Mode: No trolling or edgy comics
I don't think this passes hard mode though.
Cocerned - The half life and death of Gordon Frohman is the only really, really good webcomic:
However, it was finished 9 years ago already.
>people know about kid radd
Yes. This statement is correct.
Concerned, 8-Bit Theatre, and Kid Radd are all great, but for different reasons.
The guy who did Concerned is doing something else now, but it's so shit in comparison I completely lost interest.
Also adding to the discussion, Hiimdaisy's comics were great when she didn't go off and make her own OC webcomic.
thepunchlineismachismo and awkwardzombie are also really good webcomics about video games.
I actually stopped reading game comics when Concerned ended.
I AM STILL CONFUSED WHAT DOES EVE HAVE TO DO WITH DICK JUICE AND WHAT DOES KAINE HAVE TO DO WITH BEING A WOMAN WITH A PENIS CURSE! I DONT UNDERSTAND YOU ARE RUINING MY LIFE
Honestly, why. There was no reason to add this other than to dickwave about not liking Prime. Samus' character is exactly the same stern silent bounty hunter in Prime than in any previous game, this fucker just had to make it about his own preferences.
>The penis was a magic curse.
problem sleuth was pretty fantastic
especially if you pretend it ended there
>Alright this is actually good shit
>Get to the last line
>What's a mage?
>implying a guy at a con would be this confrontational to a hot cosplayer
>Implying that a gamer would even be able to talk to any girl at all
In this day of the cell phone I at least want to actually see something like this happening.
Also Im not sure but that last panel is great cause it makes you realize the fucking whole thing is a joke in this comics case.
But...i have seen tumblr types actually put this type of comic out there without the joke at the end.
Where did this whole fake geek girl thing start again? Oh right with fucking YT and twitch e celebs milking desperate beta men for money. No one thinks of Con goers like this.
>Getting hit by anything in monster hunter
Holy shit MH is easier than souls games, which are also not difficult. MH is basically taking a MMO raid mob, and dumbing it down to be so easy that it makes a Souls game look like motherfucking IWBTG.
His mom Couldn't believe he was doing chores.
>The Knights of Tiedrich ride in to defend the cheeto dust stained honor of their shekel maiden already bonded with a neckbeard.
There is nary a sight more pitiful than the likes of you whelps.

Guess /v/ shouldn't complain about jews ruining gaming, or casualization then, they should just go out and make their own games
no, wait, that's retarded
the author and anyone who unironically thinks like this seriously needs to kill themselves
>Unable to understand the nature of my statement the rascal in ill fitting armor and soiled garments lets engages in facetious procolomations. Whether it by the vacancies in his skull or a willful beligerence he utters a primitive noise "kek"
Do you think the maiden will give you a kiss for carrying her banner? I am sure her unfunny house partner will allow you such a gratuity.
I guess i'll take the bait.
The joke is plesoth's hipcheck had a huge hitbox, worse than what Dark souls 2 hit boxes were. So even if you dodged right by animation, you'd still get hi by the box.
And MH doesn't have an adapatablility stat, so git gud without stats faggot.
But playing to win is fun. In fact, playing to win is the only way to play. If you're not playing with the ultimate goal of winning, you're not really playing the game. How can you play other "to win"? To lose? Nobody plays to lose. That's not to say you can't have fun while losing (in fact, in some cases, losing is more fun than winning), but your ultimate goal, even when losing, is still to win.
>I can't greentext so I'll put all my sentences in one
its amazing how he almost makes it sometimes. But he just cant help but add TEXT that just ruins an otherwise funny strip. He is there conceptually but always fails at the finish line.
>"Kek" the narrow eyed imp in armor bellowed again. It was a familiar noise and seemed to mark the delight of one so simple minded.
Ah this is a Game Grumptious reference is it? The Johnathon of Tron who decries "KEK!" Your taste in entertainment is telling!
>Lightning as a good female character
>Metroid (sans Prime)
>tfw reading this in college years and years ago
Play a game that isn't team deathmatch sometime
Actually play Space Station 13 and see how long it takes you to get banned with that attitude
>that young gamer mama
porn when, /v/
Is that from brawl in the family? they did a joke just like that
Uhh, normally I'm all for criticisms, but... You can clearly see the second monitor is the one she is playing on (The green one) which comes more into view in panel 3 giving the perspective change required.
The original implies that Tingle is a murderer and hid the bodies back there.
Without the text, it implies that people who go to collect the Pictobox die there because it's a trap.
The text is necessary. You guys need to stop hating words so much.
>my small group of friends gets rekt any time we try to take and hold an objective
>decide to change tactics, go to a defendable remote corner of the map with one man on resupply and base defense, two men on anti-vehicle, one sniper with a laser designator
>enemy team is no longer allowed to be in vehicles
>our team has an easy time of taking the objectives back
>still get blamed when we lose because our k/d is all around 5/0
When there's just SO many random players you really have to play for yourself and hope it works out.
If you've been paying attention it's because you're a nerd with nothing better to do
Here's an alternate version for more dynamic.
And I posted the wrong one because I switched my filenames at some fucking point
I don't get why people seem to like this or think it's any better. If it's shit initially, it's not gonna be any funnier if you remove the words "Hey" and "Out".
I agree with removing the second panel though.
It's funny you post that, because that's not all Oglaf is. You do, however, realize this, and you were oversimplifying it in order to play off of the "/v/ is always contrarian" joke.
Which is why it's so funny.
Speaking about comics about no gaems...
This is what the two authors had to say about the comic:
>We love Civilization way too much we play it way to much actually we are stuck in Civ 2 land though I wish I could get the newer ones I am just poor right now maybe some more people should donate our hire me for a commission so that I can afford the newer Civ but I really love the old Civ 2 almost the most I can never seem to get sick of it and play it way too much.
>Gotta love the way Kraimer swings open a door randolmy, lol, fits perfect here someone on irc Lunarnet gave me this idea after talking about civ 5 games.
They just shopped the PS3 games on the last panel, it's genius
BUT READING IS FOR FAGGOTS
And it totally takes so much effort that it saps the enjoyment out of everything.
To be honest, Buckley did used to have a problem with adding too much dialogue, but you don't have to completely remove dialogue except for the bare necessities to have a good joke.
>but you don't have to completely remove dialogue except for the bare necessities to have a good joke.
sometimes you don't and sometimes you do
nerfnow is a pretty good example of a comic nose-diving, just as soon as the author starts to think she can write dialogue
Guys, can we make this thread a bit civil? It's really annoying to see the thread plagued with nothing but deleted posts, just because you wanted to defy an authority you're ill equiped to defy.
>You have a preference and fetish and are on /v/ right now.
I pretty much need to tryhard to win anything.
My default mental state is similar to a vegetable. I was born at a leisurely pace. It takes a deadline or performance bar of some sort to get me to do anything willingly.
For instance, competitive item times for Dota.
It's basically true. Many of the times where I actually meet the person behind a female Mii, or something equivalent like super girly characters in Pokemon, it almost inevitably ends up being a guy.
>Burns and allen on
>jack benny is on with burns doing stand up
>jack benny is shown being dumb and making jokes that are funny in the sense that the person misunderstood something that they replied to
>they get Gracie Allen
>more laughs because it was a male and a female
Holy shit I hadn't noticed before but after you pointed that out
It's the exact same set
Jesus christ. Does /v/ have an irrational fear of WORDS now? Just because a comic HAS words someplace it potentially doesn't need them doesn't mean it has TOO MANY words. You guys are too used to reading Fuckley's comics, chill out.
>Read through all of Problem Sleuth and fall in love
>Expect something just as good
The fact that you think the idea of women not making their own games with strong female characters is a stupid idea means that you're a lazy fucker who's buying into the patriarchy buzzword a little too much.
this cant be real, but it sounds like it is
To "Win" in SS13 is to put effort into RPing your role well. If you're antag, you can be as mean as possible to win. If you're a station worker, you just work and play your role.
You play seriously, or you don't play at all.
Jesus, these are real people that said that
I made Hitler and put cat ears on him.
is that darkgamer6669?
the whole "if you value your intelligence" thing grant grinds on about is kinda stupid and hautair. It's about giving a fuck about videogames.
Turn a matchless succubus masochistic
Or something strange like that, just search Dark_skin Shota and succubus and you will probably find it somewhere, probably the artist CG section.
I just realized I no longer see Pokemon as little monster companions, but simple tools that can be traded and swapped out without care.
Sometimes I miss being an imaginative little kid.
A game is a set of rules and an objective. You're not really playing a game unless you play within those rules, with that objective in mind.
If you just wanna dick around in a video game, you're basically using it as a toy. That's cool too, but it's not really a game.
A goal is not needed for the game though, niguah, you can play it with just the rules. Like how some games you play until you get bored. Games are just a set of rules paired with gameplay. Those rules can have a win rule, but that's not necessary with every game
This guy used to be great, I swear.
Before he went full SJW.
Fucking hell. How do they not realize the intense irony of what they're doing? To fucking use being the Joust world champion in the comic as an important point and proof that she knows her stuff, and then to say "who gives a fuck" outside of the comic. This really kills me.
While not physically strong and pretty weak minded at first, Momohime definitely grows into a brave and strong willed young woman over the course of her story.
Despite the flak Vanillaware gets for the way their women look, they're actually all very well written and developed. Personality-wise I mean.
>complaining about "muh strong womyn" in movies targeted towards men, and movies which women typically don't care about
Not to mention some of those movies had women that did shit.
Jesus, literally no normal person gives a fuck about "pop culture gender representation."
But seeing the ugly, badly-dressed dyke with the piercings and green hair made me initially think this was satire.
Looks very realistic to me, in a comic cartoon way.
Obviously she wouldn't say stop raping me, literally, but she will say something to imply unfairness and oppression and use a abuse a victimhood card because feminism says vagina justifies deception and being a manipulative jerk.
that one is nice. not laugh out loud funny, but gives me a jovial feeling inside. not enough to make me smile, but i can feel my insides get a little happier. i wouldn't take the time share it, but i would be happy if someone else sees it.
>Also adding to the discussion, Hiimdaisy's comics were great when she didn't go off and make her own OC webcomic.
Yeah I don't get Cucumber quest at all.
Maybe there's nothing to 'Get', but it's like she wanted to make a big parody comic, but lacked the basis of anything to actually parody.
So now the humor has died the same way it did in RPG Quest (Remember that shit? That was a long time ago) in that it just drags on and on and the parody elements get boiled out eventually. So the author tries to drag in a bunch of shit that doesn't belong in the comic just to give it substance and ruins it.
Which is a sad way for it to stagnate, I like the artstyle, I like what she's trying to do with the elements surround it. It's just not fucking interesting.
But... The souls games ARE IWBTG.
Only, y'know, 3D. And not just because of enemies, but rather because of all the myriad ways you can fuck up by just walking around like normal.
Also the dodge in souls games have like, double the i-frames of evasion +1 in monster hunter. It's pathetically easy to dodge everything ever forever.
yeah, ps3 totally has no games.
>I'm not like OTHER girl gamers! But I still have a self insert with excessive violence.
still a hell of a lot more than the 360.
The whole art is very shitty. The backgrounds look better than the humans.
Its only saving grace is how rough it looks and the shading, that gives it an old comic book feel and makes the otherwise awful art look less bad.
I think I get the joke.
She's just pissed. She's pissed at the guys that underestimate her but she's even more pissed at the girls that just see her as a political pawn for their agenda.
She just wants to play fucking videogames without douchebags or those fucking feminists, forget her sex, just play the damn games. I relate to that.
>No use of perspective
>The people radiate white around them
>eyelashes going over her hair
>bald guy has some sort of elongated eye socket
>Arms somehow thinner at the biceps than anywhere else
>The green haired thing's whole fucking body, she's somehow looking down at the hipster guy, as if he fucking bends over to switch tapes.
>The guy is holding the camera in the most uncomfortable position possible when switching the tapes
>The girl's arm in the first panel jesus christ
The more I look at it, the more horrifying it gets
I don't know what this webcomic is trying to convey, but this sounds fucking awesome.
The concept of justice and absolute morality in a world where such things can exist in a substantial way really fascinates me.
It's inevitable. Look at pic related. Innocent people were murdered by witch hunters and now we have movies that portray witches as real and who deserved to die. In 300 years there will be movies that portray jews as real.
The characters are over the top but very grounded on reality and probably personal experiences from the author dealing with such shitty people, thus the self insert too. I mean I don't like the comic, it's silly but I didn't find it funny but I get the author is trying to express something there.
Why do you buy so many AAA snorefest multiplats anyways? At least use a console right
No, that's a strawman that you are willing to accept because it validates your opinions. If someone who feels that there aren't enough "strong female characters" in games were confronted with a list of 20 or so characters that someone trying to prove them "wrong" BELIEVES to fulfill the requirements, they would probably point out that a) just because you can come up with a bunch of characters who are female doesn't mean that gender representation is anything close to equal, and to think it does demonstrates a naif misunderstanding of the matter at hand; b) many of those examples basically suck, e.g. Momohime? Ayumi? Really? Not to mention what a cop out including all rpgs with character creation (plus femshep) is; c) "if you don't like it make your own game" is a laughable hypocrisy that should never be expressed from someone claiming to know anything about games, especially with the cries of "pandering" that occur whenever a major developer "capitulates" to the "sjw agenda."
It is possible to have an intelligent conversation about this and related matters, but not with people who get their arguments from ohshitsonsnmspaintcomic.png.
They're not english numbers either.
Woops, meant to do you.png.
the longsword is held near the tip and near the hilt, while the katana is held only at the hilt so I don't think it's a very fair comparison. Though I do know katanas are still pretty shit.
