Zynga is doing so poorly, they might be better off if they didn't exist.

    I hope this doesn't turn into another one of those threads.

    Anyway, is it bad that I'm sharing in the perverse pleasure of Zynga reaping what they've been sowing?

    No. No it's not.

    ah zynga, perhaps their demise is the harbinger of the fall of facebook

    the thing about their fall is the executives and their scummy spammer ceo made piles of money, so even if they go away you can expect imitators for years, siphoning off the casual gaming dollar

    but that is nothing new, shovelware has been around since gaming first existed

    also the zinger at the end about star wars was gold, IMO angry birds is slumming it or even worse taking pity on the star wars IP

    I think Graham's name should come come before Kathleen's in the opening credits. I think he wants it more and it's good to shake things up abit!

    In my XBOX360 RE6 manual it does mention about the speed mixing of herbs (RB + X) though it's unclear about how it works. And also setting targets for your partner (LT + B) So which manual were you guys reading that didn't mention it?

    So, saying seizure warning, apparently counts as a seizure warning?

    My RE6 360 game didn't include a manual. Like...at all...the copyright and warnings were just on the inside cover of the shell.

    the "OMG LADYPARTS" comments in this and the previous thread make me think that today's comic is both apt and well-timed.

    First I saw Graham's pale belly on Loading Ready Run then minutes later I see Kathleen's pale belly here. Is it "show your belly week" for the LLR crew or just a tragic coincidence? Either way, get some sun guys.

    A bunch of game developers from companies that were bought out by Zynga are going to be out of a job. That sure is funny.

    Do not listen to OverEZ. Pale bellies are the best bellies. The sun is your enemy.

    My copy of RE6 didn't include a manual either. The little clips inside the case were being used, but it was to hold an advertisement for resident evil: damnation (now available on blu ray and dvd!)

    The herb mixing thing is a tooltip that can show up on loading screens, but this is the first I've heard about laying down to recover stamina faster.

    They're Canadian, they aren't on speaking terms with the sun.

    Good episode. Sucks for the companies that were bought out by Zynga, hopefully they can find new jobs.

    Who else is incredibly turned on by Kathleen’s bare midriff at the end?

    So I could buy a majority share of Zynga, sell the hard assets at a profit, and rid Facebook of annoying little games?
    I just don't have the moral flexibility to do it, Objectivism fails me.

    So what about the 6 balloons, jackal? At least this time, they were still inflated. And no spiders, too!

    As a Canadian and one sick of all the crappy Canadian stereotypes...
    I laughed hard with this one.

    I think I have a gay crush on Kathleen.

    I play Zynga games once in a while when I'm bored with MMOs, Minecraft, & pricey single player games. They're pleasantly addictive for a full week while other Facebook games get boring in 2 days. They're just incompetent on the business end. They can improve other people's games, but they seem to have a problem with kleptomania. Not buying cash items doesn't effect gameplay, but it does drain the wallets of people with obsessive compulsive collecting & hoarding.

    Do we really need to hate on casual games? They're aimed at jobless middle-aged housewives who are too inept to work outside the home.

    We love casual games.

    Zynga however, sucks like woah.
