    This comic has brightened my day and sent me off to my Christmas party with a smile on my face. Thank you Penny Arcade!

    I will accept this as a birthday comic two weeks early. Unless the comic in two weeks is awesome, in which case we'll exchange.

    No dice. I'm calling dibs on the one two weeks from now just in case! If you want to exchange it's going to cost you a pretty penny.

    Third panel in this comic is kind of extraneous, but that's okay, and it's sort of a meta-joke or something so that's good too.

    I like the director's cut of the comic.

    This is an excellent plan. Have your first comic get criticized all over, so the bar is set reallllly low for the rest of your guest strips. I really like this comic. I hope our praise doesn't make you go over the line in terms of the middle panel. It's pretty close to going over the line. And using the word 'meh' almost killed the whole comic. But I will pretend it was used to purposely look terrible. Ironically.

    The three-panel version was ok, but it was really missing the payoff of the WoW/SWTOR joke. The Director's Cut nailed it.

    What. What the hell is that? They know they don't have to do three panels, right? Why don't they post that as the main comic? Because that's just more good stuff.

    Oh man, the extended version is 100 times better. I'm with Pika, why in the world didn't they just stick with the long version?

  • Roger WilcoRoger Wilco Registered User regular
    No, no it's not rape. The egg is wearing bdsm clothes. This is just fantasy roleplaying.

    And the comic was good, by the way.

    The director's cut is a quality comic, hands down. I just wish it was at normal resolution, it seems squished.

    if you zoom in, it doesn't seem to lose any much resolution. at least in chrome.

    For a second I was scared you were talking about getting a closer look at the nipples or something, then I realized you were talking about the director's cut and my life became better.

    Too good a burn to not get recognized.

    But just look at the resolution loss, it's ridiculous!

    WARNING: this is exactly what TychoCelchuuu does not want to see.
    We've been robbed of 50% of precious nipple surface area. You can hardly tell if they're erect anymore, and that's just a travesty.

    The three panel comic was great, but the extended version was absolutely amazing. Wonder why they didn't just go with the extended version as the main strip?

    Because if you let one do it then they all want to do it. Next thing you know these strips are eating the last of the cookies and leaving their wet towels on the floor.

    Although I like the extended edition, sometimes shorter is better. I wouldn't say it was "Buckleyed" or anything (the last comic I would say was however, and it was only three panels long) but I like it ending with their dig at . . . well, us really. It also leaves you to imagine a terrible joke that they could have executed.

    I also find it amusing that it is snarky with a capital "S" in the last panel. I don't know why, its just kind of funny.

    Maybe I'm just weird, but "ya" bugs me more than "meh" does (which I don't actually mind too much really). I think its because I see "meh" as just being "eh" but with more emphasis; while "ya" is like a sort of half word for someone too lazy to type out "yeah" or use another word.

    Agree with Langly. Comics about what you're going to do for a comic need to be exceptionally funny to be good. Middle panel was just okay. Much better than Wednesday's, however.

    To me this comic seemed too much like an advertisement for their own stuff (especially the extended version) than an actual comic. I mean, I think it would be improved if all there was was one large picture of the middle panel. I don't understand why you would even mention yourself or your own products in a guest comic. Seems lazy and kinda cheap. But it was still better than Wednesday.
