Here we learn that just because you can do something (like using super-speed as an ambulance service), doesn't mean you should.

For all the crap GTA gets it's actually great at having a diverse cast of main characters. From sympathetic ones to ***holes, from young guys to old ones and a veritable Starbucks menu of races: White American, Black, Hispanic, Slavic, British... there's one variation missing though, what was it? F... f-, Filipino! Get on it Rockstar!

I don't really have much to say related to the comic, but...

This morning there was a Japanese Nintendo Direct. They revealed a new Chibi-Robo! platformer game and amiibo. And that's amazing.

They also revealed a "Pokémon-Amie" style mode for the characters in Fire Emblem if. And that's... not quite as amazing. Kind of scary, actually.

I've started working full-time at a chemistry lab, and it threw off my mojo. As such, today's comic isn't really up to my usual standards, but it's better than no comic, eh?

Oh, and DryKirby, I have no idea what you're talking about. Fire-Emblem-Amie is gonna fill that cold, empty void in my life with adorable kisses and bedroom scenes! ~^.^~

Because Box forgot that this was a comic and the dialogue gets in the way of the art, here's what's hiding in the first two panels.

There... aren't any bedroom scenes or kissing, though. That's the thing. It's literally just head petting like in "Pokémon-Amie".

On another note, wow the art here is amazing. Seriously, great bold expressions and vibrantly beautiful backgrounds. Don't undersell yourselves, either of you!

Putting things in the sky is my favorite thing to do. Unfortunately, it's also the best place to put word bubbles.

This happened back in the Dawn arc too, the big opening shot of Light City had a couple of flying things in it as well.

DryKirby, all of that happens in your character's bedroom (hence "bedroom scene"), and I am 105% certain that, if you so desired, you could kiss your waifu/husbando directly on the lips by smooching the 3DS touch screen. I think I'm justified in my excitement. >:3c

GTA... not really in my liked games... But I have to admit the crapton of things you can do there makes the game only limited by the imagination.

This comic is not stelar... but is still above decent. One cant go bad making the mages fail.
Alright, whats next?

I suppose they're still working out how to allow E, T and M-rated games to coexist without trouble?

Not really... just look back and tell me how many horror, shooting, and other M rated things have appeared in the comics. Yeah... I guess you mean a bit more hardcore things in those ratings, but really, everyone is mixed up.

Isn't there a code that you can play as jar jar binx, so you can enjoy killing him in new and exciting ways?!

Well there's no doubt a mod for it...

I am now imagining running a heist with someone using Jar Jar in your party and just abandoning him to run around, arms flailing wildly in the air as he's chased by military guys with guns while everyone else steals a jet.

I'm curious as to what the dialogue in the 4th panel'd be if there was dialogue there...
Probably "This is ludicrous!" or something along those lines.
Gosh darn it I love Black Mage's expressions.

Off topic, and part of my valve fanboyism, but I can't help but thinking Io would be an ideal ambulance-free ambulance.
