    Comic needs less dialogue in last panel.

    Like, none at all.

    YES!

    I like it, but that was my thought. Listening to the podcasts, they're always trying to keep it down to a minimum, and that just felt like it was explaining the gag.

    How do you propose we know he was killing the president without a little help?
    Given that he's wearing sneakers, it could've been anybody in some sort of American place. It could've been the hypnosis guy. Why would he hypnotize Gabe to kill himself?

    I think the point they were making in the last panel was a parody of Snakes habit to state the bleedin' obvious.

    A Hind D? Yes snake, a hind fucking d. we are looking right at it right now.

    Metal Gear? Yes. Metal fucking gear. we just told you.

    I just killed the president! yep, we see you standing over his corpse.

    How can you not finish MGS3.

    Where's the low point in the gameplay. Honestly, tell me, because I think the only real hurdle to get over is Virtuous Mission, and after that you just are compelled to keep playing.

    I haven't liked any MGS game since the first one, so this comic makes me happy. I think the charm and novelty of the original MGS made up for it's flaws, every game since then we've been getting the flaws with little novelty, and NO CHARM whatsoever.

    Vamp wasn't charming enough for you?
