Living Achievements Vicariously [ COMIC ]

Don’t you just love it when you see the Achievement Unlocked when you’re playing a game?

You’ve got to admit that XBox 360 Achievements span both ends of the spectrum. You’ve got the simple (Worms HD – Bronze Damage: Deal 500 points cumulative damage to win this award!… That requires you to do what? Play the game a couple times?) and then you’ve got the ridiculously hard (Hexic HD – Grand Pearl Pooh-Bah: Surround one piece with six black pearls… Is that all? Want me to find the cure for cancer while I’m out it?). Still its fun.

Speaking of fun, I need to download a copy of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Arcade and I also believe that Castlevania: Symphony of the Night came out today as well (haven’t checked yet). So if that came out, I’m definitely downloading a copy of that as well. Probably tonight… hopefully.

I’m still talking about the outer circle as the two year celebration is going on, but it is finally winding to a close. Yesterday’s strip was done by Benj Christensen of I Am Geek, today’s was done by Zach Weiner of Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal, tomorrow’s is being done by James Turner of Beaver and Steve and Friday’s is being done by Ramon Perez and Rob Coughler of Butternutsquash. There’s a chance that a couple more guest strips will run this weekend, but I haven’t gotten them yet so nothing is guaranteed. And just as last year I am still updating the comic as usual right below the guest strips. Still a lot more guest strips to come, so make sure to check it out.
