    That third panel is pure magic.

    I kinda wish they still did that gag where Gabe and Tycho are doing some random crap rather than just standing around talking about a game like being in jail or carrying a body, but I guess it's hard to keep coming up with new situations all the time. Also, it wouldnt work here since they're specifically watching something.

    I honestly find myself requiring context for the comic more and more these days.

    Shows how out of touch with digital gaming I am now getting :(

    I always felt like those comics where they were doing a random thing were an homage to Calvin and Hobbes. Like when they're biking down a hill, or walking through the park on an autumn day, or whatever.

    And in this case, that sort of thing doesn't really fit because Gabe is literally in the act of reverie here, while on the couch, playing vidja games.

    It could be a homage I guess, but I just figured they wanted to add some variety rather than just have the characters hanging out on a couch

    I guess it's probably PUBG or Battle Royale or one of those other games where toy only get one life.

    Having teenaged RPG leads is really cool until you stop being a teenager yourself. Do you remember being seventeen? You're a dumbass at seventeen! I wanna be saved by the guy who's twenty-seven. He's at least payed taxes. He knows how to do shit. He can drive.

    Reading it again it could be a pubg thing, though I thought you couldn't spectate that if you weren't on a team or something?

    I think that's from the Fortnite twitch stream they did recently.

    Don't think that's it. He's talking about someone who killed him, not someone who killed his orc.

    Having not seen the stream, my first thought was of Crusader Kings 2.

    Third panel: flashback to 'Deadpool'.
