Meta Game [ COMIC ]

Now my “now” panels would be as follows:

Guy 1: I have a Charmander!
Guy 2: I have a family and a full-time job.
Guy 1: Me too…Oh, right.
[both guys walk away and never play Pokémon again]

    “I have a family and a full-time job”. And? Get the kids into it, then you get to play games, seem like you’re being a good parent because you’re spending time with the kid, AND your wife can’t complain too much about the gaming because you’re “doing it with/for the kids”. Win, win. That ALMOST works most of the time at my house

      Never mind that Charmander is a starter, which means you can get it right away.

    Hi there, 29 year old guy with a bachelor’s degree completed, two kids, and a full time job in corporate business.

    I don’t make douchy comments such as, “adult here, I don’t take pokemon seriously” or “adult here, I don’t draw video game comics or talk about video games on some website”

    I really don’t take pokemon seriously, as it’s not my cup of tea. But I don’t look down on those that do neither, I take Street Fighter seriously.

    My two cents on that author comment up there.

    • Oscar

      We all have our hobbies. (forgot to add that)

      • Alexander

        I read the author comment less as “Anyone who’s an adult and still plays Pokemon is stupid” and more as “I don’t have enough free time anymore”.

        • You’re right. It’s about free time being the issue.

          That said, I would be more than happy to explain to Oscar that I have more than JUST a full-time job while I am still working at 2 in the morning most weeknights, if he likes.


    Did they add IV training in ORAS?
