    I'm guessing this is an X-Com reference, right?

    I'm not even sure, but it's still hilarious.

    Yes. It's a guy in standard armor with a laser sniper rifle.
    Wielded by a good sniper it takes down pretty much anything in one shot.

    This strip, today, is the best one for a longtime. I did laugh out loud.



    Well gosh, I suppose I might as well settle in for a nice cuppa ...... this is gonna be good!

    I was confused. I thought that guy looked like the default generic male Commander Shepard and I was wondering why they would be drawing a Mass Effect comic. X-Com makes way more sense.

    I love the dot on E.T.'s forehead in the second panel. :)

    I was confused for some time... and then I suddenly remembered X-Com and then it was hilarious.

    The newspost makes me wonder what this comic would've looked like with Alf or Stitch in place of E.T.

    Well for one thing, Stitch would shoot back. And he can hold four guns at once...

    I would love if they had done an alternate strip where in the first panel Alf is sitting on the couch making some sarcastic quip, then an Assault kicks in the door to the Tanner home and shotguns him in the face.

    If you're confused about what their comic may be referring to, Jerry pretty much always explains it in his News post.

  • fightinfilipinofightinfilipino Angry as Hell CharlottesvilleRegistered User regular

    In honesty, if I went down in a terror mission and saw Stitch I'd just book it the fuck back to the Skyranger and pray the little bugger doesn't manage to catch anyone before we run the hell away.

    If the alternative is THAT guy, Hawaii can go fend for itself, thank you very much.

    Fixed.

    It'd be kind of inside, but inserting X-Com operatives in the last shot of the series would also play well with anyone who remembers how ALF ended.

    I can picture X-Com adopting Stitch as their mascot, like Slimer in The Real Ghostbusters only with a longer mean streak and a penchant for gleefully dismembering hostile aliens. Ohana means family, bitches.

    Hadn't heard a thing about X-Com until I saw the... bizarrely generic ad spots. I thought it was another one of those ACRONYM SQUAD iOS FPSs, was pretty surprised to see it was a console game.
