#208: The Games We Didn't Play
Saturday, January 2, 2016
So they're considering Metroid, a game that has been around for 81 years in the year 2067. And Jerry is absolutely excited and relieved about it.
While drawing this one, we listened to Rush's fantastic record "Moving Pictures." It contains classics like "Tom Sawyer," "YYZ," and "Red Barchetta."

Characters: Astronaut at the VG Center; Fallout, Jerry; Hooded Figure at the VG Center; Red Robot at the VG Center; Soldier at the VG Center; Spacebot 4000; Warrior Princess at the VG Center; Wizard at the VG Center
Spacebot 4000: Erm, could you...
Soldier: SINCE WHEN DOES A PRIVATE TALK WHEN I DON'T ASK HIM?! NOW BACK IN LINE, YOU MAGGOT!
Jerry Fallout: Hey, do ya know how to play these VG games?
Hooded Figure: [unintelligible gibberish]
Warrior Princess: So, have we finally decided what to play?
Red Robot: No, not really. I think they're still discussing about it.
Astronaut: How about Metroid? It's been a while.
Jerry [excited]: Hey, I know that game!
Blog and social media pages
Friday, February 5, 2016
Since our return in November 2015, we've massively expanded our presence in social media. Even though all of them have their links on every page, here's the complete list:
Our own blog
If you like our little comic, feel free to like or follow us in the social media networks you're members of, and use their sharing mechanisms to spread the word. Our eternal gratitude will be yours if you do.
Using these channels, you can also communicate with us, ask questions, or even try and make suggestions. We won't promise to listen to the latter, but are always glad to hear your opinions about our work. Even the critical ones, as long as they're more constructive and more eloquently worded than "you suck."
We deliberately left out Instagram since they're too hipster to allow access from a computer and require a mobile device. We create and publish this comic using a MacBook Pro, and I'm not too fond of switching devices just for one social network (I know there are unofficial workarounds, but never mind these).
