We're back! (A tad later than scheduled but nonetheless) We've got some great stuff lined up this year so hold on to your webcomic-reading pants. (and If you haven't got any put some on now. Think of the people who hack your webcam.)

More common in older games but if you got a really big score or collected to many pick ups the game would clock back around to zero, or worse, clock over to the negative numbers. And given the world of Level 30 has to have systems for everything I don't think all those problems have been ironed out. Cramming a bunch of game worlds together doesn't have a beta period. Still If you have a low alcohol tolerance like the good doctor you got some perks.

It's my personal headcanon that young!Gardevoir looks like the long-headed one from the older comics.

It's also my personal headcanon that most boxes in Venatus are labelled "Mighty".

But since I'm part of the comic staff I guess that means it's actual canon now.

I think what you got there DK is what TVTropes calls "Running The Asylum".

I'm more concerned about Missile Command. *shudder* >_<;

Just imagine the headaches the school system is going to have, though. They'll have to have separate math classes for 8-bit, 16-bit, 32-bit, and 64-bit characters. Granted, the 32 and 64-bit characters could probably share a classroom without too much trouble, but if any of the others shared a classroom, there's be a serious risk of blowing an lower bit character's mind by accidentally mentioning a number greater than their maximum bit value. 8-bit characters would be especially vulnerable. All it would take is one person making the over 9000 joke for Gardevoir to get an influx of new patients.

Chansey: "Do NOT make that joke."

I love the contrast between the third and first panel, to show how Gardevoir has changed. Great idea.

Not after what?

This little incident.

I had always been of the impression that they were talking about coffee back then...
Alex Nelson (Guest) edit delete reply
No, that's still there. In Meet the Mages, they have a machine specifically for Hot Coffee. (Technically a mod, but...)

Is that a pokemon joke? (I seem to remember glitching a pokemon's lv to the point it went back to 1 on red and blue)
Guybrush20X6 edit delete reply
General programming joke but that's a good example of it happening.

Haha, nice xD I like the contrast between the third panel and Gardevoir's current look

And here I thought it might be about Linux, since we use Wine as a layer to use windows apps...
DryKirby64 edit delete reply
We would make a Linux joke, but Wine is not an electronic game, I suppose.

That'd be Wineg. I failed. I'm sorry.

The capitalization fooled me. But no need to apoligize. Also, any news on a possible Touhou comic? The cast of these games is quite... Colorful I assure you!

You'd think that for something as important as alcohol, they would alocate two bytes...

I just noticed one of the creators made a cameo in this strip! I see you there, MightyBox!
