On Regret

on-regret

Sort of a filler comic this week as I try and handle yet another deadline for work. Online game development never lets you rest it seems. I would have asked Matt, Dom, or even George to contribute, but it seems only my wife and I played DA2 of the crew.

I’m hoping that things will lighten up a bit for me so that I might sink my teeth in to Dark Souls this week. It’s easily the game I’ve been looking forward to the most this year. I just really like dungeon running, loot gathering, and stressful gaming. The last Souls game more than delivered that last time, so I have high hopes. Plus it’s the designer who made Armored Core 4 Answer, which is a personal favorite of mine. Oh FROM SOFTWARE, you make such enjoyable yet flawed games. Please, never change.

In the mean time, my gaming has been the latest Deus Ex. Which I can not enjoy. It’s a solid game, don’t misunderstand me. It’s just that it heavily rewards perfection and is quick to punish flaw. This just results in my hand never leaving the Quick-Save key with reloads after every single errant result of my actions. I find it hard to immerse myself in the gaming goodness when facing load screens at equal frequency as shots fired.



Sorry, Matt;

sorry-matt

But I can’t help but giggle a little when you put this comic in reverse.



New shirts are up, up up

We’ve got three new designs in the Topatoco store.

Broface! – Based on this comic about headbutt cats.

Burrito! – Based on burritos.

Pixel Cthulhu! – Based on that other shirt that people can’t get enough of.

While you’re there, consider the glow-in-the-dark anglerfish shirt because I still think that’s pretty sweet.
