Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

    This comic is a delight! I love the expressions on the poster. Tycho in panel 2 looks like Theodore from the Chipmunks though and that's the first time this "tooth controversy" has ever really had an effect on me. Everything else looks just fine.

    Though I don't really get how Tycho can not understand the strategy of getting new people into games, I mean they've been doing this sort of thing for a while now, the Wii being only the most-obvious example. They themselves have shared stories of family members playing games when they do not usually partake in video-gaming.

    Peter's still a nut. Why would the casual crowd care about a free-roaming, medieval role-playing game with magic spells and shit? Isn't that exactly the type of game that non-gamers think is stupid?

    I'm actually kind of looking forward to seeing how Fable II fares!

    I entered the first one with extremely low expectations and enjoyed it, so I'll do the same with this one!

    I think that is this comic's sole point.

    I had way too much fun with fable. Of course i had no expectations going in because the first time I even heard of it was when I walked into my dorm and 3 people were in there playing it on my roommates xbox.

    Hopefully the second one fixes crap that did bother me about the first and it'll be just as fun.

    reminds me of the "it's not for you" comic

    well nevermind
    superjoe beat me by like half an hour
    (that's what i get for skimming past spoilers)

    I tried to write "but that" and my hands naturally wrote "butt hat", which is vastly superior in every way.

    It just seems like a faux paus to cater to what isn't your demographic.

    I mean, I doubt the people who don't play games abstain because there has never been a game like Fable 2.

    the only way to get people that don't play games into games is to place them into some sort of Saw scenario where if they don't eat all the cheetos, drink all the pepsi, and beat the entire game of sonic in 15 minutes then you cut their thumbs off or something.

    I think you're confusing Scott Kurtz with someone else.

    Way to fail, Hunter. You are an inspiration.

    I like the comic. I can't wait to play Fable II though. I enjoyed Fable immensely.

    But, if you play the game then you're not someone who doesn't play games, because you are playing a game.

    That is some serious zen shit right there.

    It's probably a lot like Fable.

    Only.... more. More Fabley.

    I think Peter is trying to get people who've never even SEEN a video game to play this. Like they will start it up and go "Oh my stars! There is a world inside this magic box and when I press these knobby things on this-here magic stone it controls that chap inside. Now it is speaking to me and making the sounds of animals!

    This is certainly the greatest of game one could ever dream of! Far better than chasing a broken-out barrel ring with a stick that is for true!"

    So, essentially, Peter Molyneux had created the first video game for the Amish demographic.

    Somebody get to work on some kind of gravity-powered puzzle game. Maybe incorporate some springs! We could have a version that is made of wood and mimics baseball!
