Unlikely Opponents

TimSometimes random thoughts just come together to make random comics. I think I’ve been so inundated with Michael Vick news that it’s impossible to get away from. I’m really getting sick of it, especially since every time they talk about him I’m reminded how much more dog fighting is looked down upon than rape and abuse of human beings. Have we vilified any other football player like this? Regardless, Aiai vs. Samus would be awesome for about 5 seconds. That’s how long it would take Samus to un-morph, charge her cannon, grin, and blow Aiai away.

RayYou know, there have been a couple of times where I have thought about taking a break and just skipping the comic for a week, but this was definitely the closest I’ve ever gotten to actually doing it. With no real ideas from Tim and the summer coming to a close, I pretty much had to pry myself away from Metroid Prime 3: Corruption to get this done. I feel much better knowing there’s a comic for you guys to read today than a note saying I’m too busy back-tracking through the levels.

I still have the thought of taking a week off sometime, but I don’t want to leave that week blank. So if anyone might be interested in doing a guest-strip for me, let me know and we’ll be sure to talk with you about it.

    It’s alright. Still, Samus would win.

    I dunno if i’ve said this before or not but.. I love the comic! As a whole, not just this strip. I check this site like, thrice daily just because I really love your work and your sense of humor and I must say I’m never dissapointed with the comic I so anxiously wait for..

    In response to the comic itself.. I know it seems like everything’s in samus’s favor but.. just look at that little guy! He might not have trivial little things like lazer cannons, grappling hooks, beam-swords, mines, grenades, armor, skills, reflexes, agility, combat training or boobs; But he’s got heart! Im sure Ash Ketchum would tell you that THAT is what truly matters. That or the boobs.. how old is he now?

    Samus wouldn’t even have to un-morph to beat Aiai, she’d just unload on him with morph-bombs.

    Im posting this just coz I feel pushed to this time.

    First off i’d like to say I DO like your comic…
    your very talented artists and SOME of your stuff is funny.
    what I do like is your take on the gaming market, but I have to say this, and please dont take it the wrong way, I find your sense of humour lacking, its not that your not funny, because you guys are funny, its just the lack of real wit that puts me off, you come up with a pun, and leave it at that instead of developing it into any kind of intelligent humour (fair play its a comic, but for who? kids? adults? both?)

    please dont think of this as hate mail or anything coz like i said before, your stuffs good, i just want you to push alil more and make it great ^_^

    look at web comics (you probably do alread) like xkcd, then look at Extra life… which would you rather be compared to?

    p.s. If ya didnt guess already, i dont think much of Extralife, lol

    keep up the good work guys ^_^

    Im sorry, I have to disagree with sam. I think you have a great sense of humor. I actually like your sense of humor better than most comics. Dont get me wrong, there’s some great stuff out there, but your humor is unique and that’s what attracts me to this comic. I like that you’re not a cookie-cutter penny-arcade/VGcats clone with an identical style of humor to every other webcomic. I like what you do and the way you do it.

  6. Tim says:

    Samuel and Ryan,
    Thank you both for your comments. Sam, we can take constructive criticism and appreciate your honest comments. We’re still getting a hang of this. Ryan, thanks for the support. We do want to be different than other comics (otherwise, what’s the point?) and we’re glad you think we’ve done that.

  7. Ryan says:

    Stupid Micheal Vick, since he left, the Atlanta Falcons have sucked D:
    Most people dont care but when u live in Georgia, it matters.

  8. Ryan says:

    Not to mention Bobby Patrino…
