The best PvP-enhancing prosthetic around.
Im liking the behind the head look a lot more and think the joke was funny and a good video game-esq reference. Also, doesn't that show true love when you can say "I have to poop" and neither of the parties are grossed out?A positive nit-pick. did you notice on the computer screens were the basic sketch shapes of the blood elves from the Ding! comic strip. I still think that Ding! is the in game evens of the PVP crew and both of them having characters shaped like both blood elves in the game lends credence to that. (also the ad saying "the adventures of the PVP crew in Wow" does as well)
I'm so glad Scott finally decided to get rid of all the ads. No one else really mentioned it here, so I don't know if it was just me that didn't like them. 6 ads on one page was just too many. Then to add 3 more (for t-shirts, PVP Series and Ding!) was over kill.Oh and I prefer the comic buttons this way too. Two tiny squares on the left side was just so annoying when using the archive.
My only issue with this comic is the tagline: "Things that have never been said, in the entire universe until just... right... NOW."I know it's for the purpose of a joke, but anyone who has lived with another MMORPG player for any amount of time has probably heard a line like that one.
Well i think you can infer that it wasnt said until the invention of the mmorpg. (he could have said it explicitly like that but went another way with it)
Yeah... I think the "just... right... now..." thing didn't mean the specific instance outlined in the comic, but rather the era that we find ourselves in. A this moment in time sort of thing. Your parents, or grandparents, never would have said that line... and I don't think there's really another pastime, either presently or historically, where a person would say that.
@ SageYou make good points about the reasons why Ding! can be viewed as the in game exploits of the PVP gang in WOW, especially the ad saying literally that, so I went back and listened to the podcast where he discusses his creation process of the strip (http://recordings.talkshoe.com/TC-49535/TS-84017.mp3) to see if maybe I was remembering incorrectly.If you want to listen to that podcast from around 17:00 to 19:00, that's where he says that these are new characters in a generic MMORPG.If you want to read the strip as the PVP gang, then there's nothing stopping you, I suppose. But that doesn't seem to be the intent of the author. There have also been some things (the types of elves, I believe.... I've never played WOW...) that are inconsistent with the WOW universe, and this is why.I'm pretty sure he talks a bit more about borrowing the avatars that he used in PVP, and even some of the names (Kissybear) and I'll post timestamps for those later when I finish relistening to the podcast.Then again, maybe he changed his mind somewhere along the line and this is now the PVP gang in WOW, but I think the non-WOW references are proof that isn't the case.
You're really expecting consistency?
TFSM, where oh where have your balls gone?
Why has everyone started abbreviating Fake Scott Mcloud's name to TFSM?There is no "The" in his name.
I don't know...I can totally see Hannibal as second in command, bringing the elephants over the Alps. And his commander turns to him and says almost the exact same line.
southpark did it first remember Make love not warcraftand why Jade didnt say the little girl room or the place where you go alone or something like thatwhy change a character for the sake of the joke instead of working around it?
I don't find it unbelievable that Jade would tell Brent she has to poop, when she's in a hurry. She isn't saying she has explosive diahrrea.I use "TFSM" because it's more natural for me to say he is "the fake Scott McCloud", as opposed to saying he is "fake Scott McCloud". The latter just makes me feel like I've left a word out.
