Have I lost the plot or does this thing have a plot? Only time will tell.

I wrote the final 3 panels as a separate comic years ago and it's almost bizarre that the TF2 trade economy is still going strong. And they still haven't made ear buds readily available so I guess it's still somewhat relevant.

Anyway, this arc is over. I hope you enjoyed it. Next week we'll be talking Smash Bros so see you then.

We've only ever seen Audino in either her work uniform or her sleepwear. So what does she wear on her days off? She already plays the "adorable" card with her myriad plushies, so I figured a ribbon and a floral hair ornament would be appropriate. In my experience, those who play dress-up with their dolls tend to also dress themselves.

I also hope "Kick Me" Scout becomes a recurring character. Dude is &&&&ing hilarious to draw. XD

This is also technically our Easter comic (which we are celebrating with Max's Severed Head). Happy Easter to y'all who celebrate it! ^_^

More like backlighting the comic am I right?

I'm a lazy bastard who also like color consistency so whenever Audino gets new headwear I for whatever reason decide to give it the exact same color scheme as her nurses hat.
Her nightcap had the same two colors as well.
Personally I think it came out well but it's still a little thing to chide myself over.

The next comic will be quite a while. 404 had a blackout and lost what he was doing. I'm sure all of us can relate.

I thought the official story was that we decided to add Sonic in at the last minute, so the comic had to be delayed for a few months while we hurriedly finish developing him and giving him a last second spot near the end of the story.

May I be the first to say Dun dun DUUUNN!!

On an aside note, I wonder what would happen if MOBA characters ran in with Dr. Gardevoir? They have to die all the time so they would be all sorts of messed up.

If reading modern NerfNow!! comics has taught me anything, it's that I know squat about MOBAs. I played Super Monday Night Combat but I could never do more than casual.
SonOfPreacherMan (Guest) edit delete reply
Whilst NerfNow is a fun read, it wouldn't tel you all that much about them. Reading the fluff on the more popular ones, all the characters are in these arenas for a reason, whether it be for a political side, vengence, to prove a point, or mainly just because they find it fun. I play Lol myself and haven't touched DotA since all-stars, so I can only really give a one-sided view.

Can someone explain this to me?

It makes my brain hurt.

For the first 3 panels: Read some of the comics before this one
For the last 3 panels: Read some of the other comments for more info

I call hax. How else could Scout have a Max's Severed Head with a Stormy Storm effect? There are no unusual Max's Heads.

The storm clouds are meant to be a visual representation of emotion -- similar to the sweatdrops, floating punctuations, and orange shockwaves we've previously used in the comic.

I think SprScoot87 should return. Dominating players like him and making them rage on mic chat like 10 year olds is what makes the game worthwile.

Might be because I never played Team Fortress but I really don't get the final panel.

However, it's nice to see Nurse Audino once more. I,m playing Pokémon White these days, and Audino are on my Top 10 favorite Pokémon species (of Gen 5, anyway). They're some of the most adorable Pokémon of Gen 5, that's for sure.

On a side-note, I started using panels from Level 30 Psychiatry for my blog's reviews. I used Panel 2 from page 7, "The Weakest Link", to show how much his adventure in TLoZ: Twilight Princess has scarred him. I gave credit, no worries.

Is this... is this the first hint of some kind of plot I spot here? Or are those top 3 pages some kind of reference to something in the Pokémon game Dawn is from that I don't know about? (because I don't play Pokémon)
I really hope it's the former. I'd like to see some kind of larger story be woven through all the random day-to-day stuff, because I think that, story wise, there's a lot of potential in a world like Venatus Prime.

Box, listen carefully. By swearing, you have opened a door that can never be closed, and doomed this comic to become a swear ridden deathtrap, from witch there will be no escape.




I hope you're proud of yourself.

Ehhhh..... they only really swear in the comment section. Heck, the only time they ever swore in the comic was in the earlier comics, and even then it was censored. Eventually all of that just faded out of the comic slowly and cussing stayed in the comment section.
Blaaaaaaaa (Guest) edit delete reply
It's not like the first time they cussed anyways! Geez!

Are those the mice from Chu Chu Rocket in the background of panel 4? Wonder what they're in for.

Well, the main characters of Chu Chu Rocket *are* the mice. Perhaps they're just pests like the headcrabs?

Imagine being pitted against invincible, psychotic cats in a series of never-ending mazes. Not hard to imagine they'd need help.

Touché. I'd like to see a comic featuring them later on, now. Maybe I could do that myself... but I have obligations. :)

I think it would be awesome of someone made a mod for the assist trophies in the next game so a headcrab is one of them

I wonder if the Chus are discussing something with Arakune there too? They may be having a deep discussion on the practical applications of freeze-drying.

Have you guys played link between worlds? Ravio is the real rupee thief.
Guest (Guest) edit delete reply
Are you kidding? Ravio is nothing compared to Tingle. He expects me to pay 305 rupees to decipher a map. And all he does is throw confetti all over it!

So, I did end up buying a copy of Pokémon X in the end, and I did end up catching a Ralts.
It got me thinking, however, about that alternate script you posted a few pages back, where Gardevoir mentioned she's technically a Wild Pokémon. What would happen if she decided to take a stroll through the park some day, and ended up running into a trainer who thought she was a "normal" wild Pokémon and tried catching her?
Guest (Guest) edit delete reply
I always thought she was "owned" by Roll, ie she caught herself in a pokeball so no one else could and entrusted the pokeball to Roll. But that's just my head cannon.

a cheap cheep (Guest) edit delete reply
just to ask, with all the games being put into one world, has any of the charters done something truly crazy to another charter? like bowser trying to kidnap a different princess (like zelda or some other chick) and what does system rivals (mario netendo/sonic sega) do if they meet?
Rvan edit delete reply
Rvan
Well, we've already seen Sonic and Mario meet in the Olympic arc.
It... did not end well for Mario.
