Stiff Competition [ COMIC ]
No gran-grans were hurt in the making of this webcomic.
Okay, today’s comic is actually based on real life. Earlier this week, a friend and I went into one of the countless local GameStops. While inside the clerk on duty decided to inform us… You know what? Inform is too timid of a term to describe his actions. Better to say he “vehemently excreted information from every orifice in his body.” Yeah, that’s it. While inside the clerk on duty decided to vehemently excreted information from every orifice in his body about their Nintendo 3DS launch party this upcoming weekend. He was extremely excited about the event and it was quite a humorous site to watch. I think the comedy factor of the situation was only magnified by our deadpan responses to his glee. Plus, we both swear the guy got an erection while telling us about it, but that’s purely speculation.
Now my opinion about the 3DS. I did get a chance to try one last weekend. I think it’s neat, but… Well, I look at it a lot like masturbating: It’s fun, but if you keep doing it for too long you’re going to strain something.
Still with the market leaning more towards shorter bursts of gaming on the mobile devices, maybe this won’t be a shortcoming at all.
