Well we're back. And so is Roger Wilco. 404, you really know how to make 'em expressive. McPixel is what would happen if Warioware and Serria's old X-Quest games had a baby, raised it in the St. MacGuyver Daycare and then told it to disable a bomb in 20 seconds. It's short but worth the cheap price.

This is the first instance that we've represented characters with sprites from their own games but McPixel is such an average looking dude otherwise. Besides, the game got it's infamy from being cool with piracy so I don't think a little fair-use parody will hurt anyone. And to put any fears to rest, McPixel did disarm the bomb with only one casualty. Guess.

This time next week I'll be in the Kalos region and I expect a lot of you will be too.

Thanks GB! I'm glad you like the expressions.

I'm glad I finally got a chance to draw Arakune. One of my favorite fighting game characters...even though I have never played Blazblue.
I think my favorite fighting game character would have to be Faust, even though I have never played Guilty Gear.
I suck at fighting games, so I just read about the ones with interesting characters.

McPixel, eh? I think I got that game on Steam. Never played it, though.

I'm trying to get $40 by Saturday so I can get Pokemon Y. Chesnaught and Goodra, here I come!

Have you guys heard of the new Mega Gardevoir? Its dress is insanely poofy. Like, Pinkie-Pie-hair poofy. You HAVE to make a comic about Dr. Gardevoir and her new Megalution.

SOME OF US ARE TRYING TO AVOID SPOILERS!

Not me, I knew about that particular one already but please everyone, don't go posting them. Game Freak tried to bring them out worldwide on the same day for a reason. (And I'm betting it'll be worldwide minus Canada and Italy for Gen 7).

And to answer your question, maybe. A writer shouldn't reveal their cards.

It's not like naming two new Pokemon would be too big of a spoiler. If anything, it's just saying that two Pokemon by those names exist.

But Mega Gardevoir shouldn't be that spoilery. If anything, someone else would have said something about that. This comic *does* center around Dr. Gardevoir, after all.

Sorry if I came off strong, I just wanted to nip it in the bud.

But on the Mega Gardevoir topic, I'm surprised art of them hasn't sprung up (the real version anyway). Are all the deviant artists trying to avoid spoiler too?

I've actually seen fanart of her Mega form on tumblr.

The good part is there's already art of it. The bad part is there's already NSFW art of it.

At least the Mega Form's better than it could have been.

Even considering the context, Roger looks a litle too happy. He'll still have to clean up afterwards.

"Serria's old X-Quest games" I assume you meant Sierra (named after the Sierra Mountains where their offices were located).
apstorm (Guest) edit delete reply
Ah, there we go... I actually wasn't entirely sure about the Sierra mountains thing, so looked it up... I'm mostly right.

"As their business grew, Ken and Roberta moved in 1982 from L.A. to Oakhurst, California, near Yosemite National Park. They also changed the company’s name to Sierra On-Line to reflect their new base of operations near the Sierra Nevada mountain range."
