The Answer lies...

Author Notes:
Guybrush20X6 edit delete
As far as fighting game protagonists go, Ryu is a rather bland and plain example. But it works because he's the template that all others derive from. Tekken may have deeper lore but as they keep needing reasons to fight, it soon dissolves into the Mishima family squabble simulator.

And the week we have Street Fighter, SF2 gets yet another version. Not lost our touch for wizardry.

Speaking of, it's an exciting time to be a Nintendo fan again. The Switch launch revealed:

*Konami likes money and success again.
*Mario one ups Team Fortress's obsession with hats to the determent of it's weapons by making it's hats into weapons.
*Fears of the new Zelda's open world hurting the story have been put to rest with the revelation of feels in the game.
*Violent Ken is now canon. Or at least no longer crossover OC trash.
*Suda51 is apparently untranslatable. (oh and NMH3 is coming)
*Fire Emblem's over representation in Smash may be corrected by virtue of reality changing to match it.
*Spring Man, long time butt of worst Robot Master jokes (pre-Sheep Man era) may be a lock for the next Smash.
*New Mario, Zelda, Splatoon and IPs all in year 1 is still not enough to shut up the NINTENDO IS DEUMED crowd.
*E3 this year will be exciting for Nintendo again.

Gardevoir waifu? :P
CidYoshi edit delete reply
Why you ask?
MyNameIsNull edit delete reply
According to the typical answers, at least.
CidYoshi edit delete reply
So the norm with the answers is based on Internet. And on Internet is either memes or fanservice. Huh, sounds legit I guess.

I once again like the comic's art. Drawings are cool and the coloring was really nice. And ofc nice gag too. Great job team ^^.

I am gonna wait until my Birthday in the summer before I get a Switch at least that way I can get Super Bomberman R, Breath of the Wild, AND Splatoon 2.
MyNameIsNull edit delete reply
I'm deciding between the switch and a drawing tablet. : P
JokerJay779 (Guest) edit delete reply
Yeah I really need to get a drawing tablet. Apparently a friend of mine who is really good at digital drawings says practicing more with drawing digitally can help you get better at art faster apparently

I'm going to get it near launch but not at launch so that any crippling day one problems are out of the way.

Think Nintendo should have packaged 1, 2, Switch with it as I can't see myself picking it up by itself.

Well I probably wasn't gonna play it much anyway so might as well skip it.

Strange, you'd think Bison would be "Yes! YES!!"
JokerJay779 (Guest) edit delete reply
Well at least it was one of his memes.

Here in Megaman Memorial, we deal in older, classier memes.

What some of my responses would likely be:
"Chun-Li": Singing a certain ZZ Top song.
"Bison": "OF COURSE!"
"Felicia": "Day."
"Rose": "Tyler."

Rose Tyler...? Why do I think of Doctor Who when I hear that? I don't think that was her full name, but still...

On a completely unrelated note, I see the words "BAD WOLF" in my dreams lately. I've been doing a lot of research on technology, and I wonder if it's getting to me...?
MyNameIsNull edit delete reply
Our brains DO use data from our day and try to make a dream out of it at night. Has someone been binging the Doctor lately?

On that same topic, dreams are weird. Half the time I don't have any, and when I do... Where did that giant man eating taco come from?
Most the time my brain uses data to manifest terrible visions during the day. And weird sounds. I've already been told I should get it checked out.
Drackon edit delete reply
No, but I have been looking at tons of geeky sci Fi news, tech news, gaming, and enough nerdy/geeky stuff that I wonder if it's all getting jumbled up in my head.

I think Ryu's answers were better than the typical or at least ones that would keep him out of trouble.

Funny and great artwork in those center panels.

Guest522 edit delete reply
Eh I think its a bit bollocks, Garde was obviously redrawn at least twice on every instance.

Also her handwriting is the most inconsistent thing this side of the tracks.
CidYoshi edit delete reply
I just realized.. Ryu came for teraphy. Ryu. Who in the very first comic was labled as someone not considered being in need of mental help.

Is this a bad omen of things to come for Venatus Prime?

Nah... As a matter of fact, Ryu turned up because his Friends kept telling him he had a problem with being obsessed with fighting.

Still, this comic proves one thing. Ryu's a Celibate hero. He's not interested in Sexual appeal, he's more interested in the Fight.
Darius Drake (Guest) edit delete reply
Just checked the first comic. It doesn't say that he doesn't need mental help, but that he adapted to the change in the world without issues. There's a difference between needing mental help regardless of the world he's in and needing mental help due to the world changing in ways they have difficulty adapting to.

I am amazed that none of you saw that Ryu started the Word Association that Gardevoir started. She said "Ready?" He replied with "Fight". That is the start of all battles in Street Fighter. I am not a big fan, I heard enough to recall it.
