    I've never been on drugs, nor have I ever played El Shaddai. I have, however, seen Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas.

    I don't wanna kill anybody. I don't like bullies. I don't care where they're from.

    Unless anti-depressants count.

    speaking as someone who used to actively un-make hippos everyday by giving them birth control, I highly support this comic.

    I wonder how many lurkers are going to come out of the intertron woodwork to tell us like, how high they are. Right now.

    Also, good comic.

    Actually I expect a lot more lurkers to say how they've never done drugs not once but still thought the comic was max yucks.

    Which it is. Max yucks, I mean.

    without watching the videos, I know that Metatron is a cool angel dude and El Shaddai is a name for Yahweh, so I am pretty sure some crazy Japanese interpretation of religion is what's going on here.

    hippos can and often do bite people into three pieces with one chomp

    hippos do not fuck around.

    (also to my shame because I think of Dogma when I think of an ancient religious figure, rather than the real thing?)

    Well, we're striking back, because hippos are slipping their way into the endangered species list.

    Wasn't sure what this game was, so I looked up some videos and then suddenly this video crossposted from the G&T thread into the Youtube thread made more sense. Maybe you'll need to imbibe a particularly Japanese combination of them.

    I'm having a really hard time taking this game seriously now after seeing all the videos Niconico has done. Like how can I take this seriously when the whole time I'd be playing I'd be thinking of

    this?

    I'll still check it out most likely, but that video is just the tip of the iceberg for what Japan has done with this game.

    But the US release date isn't for another month and a half. I guess Tycho's playing an import copy.

    I've watched this video like 4 times, but only today did I watch the actual trailer

    Hippos are also one of the few wild animals that are completely untrainable. You absolutely cannot train a hippo to do anything. If they use hippos in a movie, they basically have to stock shots, or mechanical.

    Now all I can think about is the Ace Ventura 2 birth scene.

    E: whoops, that was a mechanical rhino.

    Also a true story. Well, a true story about an imaginary thing perhaps. The hippo was small, lying on its side, and its long tongue wrapped around it in an apparently infinite sequence of concentric rings. The exertion it took to maintain this creature was immense, and very near the limits of my ability; if not for the richness and amiability of his company, I might have consigned him to oblivion.

    When I first read this comic, I thought that he was saying that El Shaddai was superior to drugs as you could create hippos anywhere in the game rather than just randomly see them in life. This is sad, as I have actually been following this game somewhat(one of the lead character designers from the Okami team, well that's interesting). However, the thought of being able to suddenly summon a hippo in the middle of the motorcycle sequence or platforming sequence would be somewhat strange. And euphoric.

    I am unsure as to whether I prefer my interpretation of the comic or the actual meaning, but either way, hippos. The comic has a very real feeling to it, almost as if Tycho and Gabe were moving themselves.

    Sorry about that.

    Yeah, looking at it and the previous few comics, the most obvious difference is that the lines around their heads have uneven thicknesses, like they were painted instead of drawn and then inked over.
