Comic 141: E3 2017

E3 2017

So... Sorry about the long, long delay - I've been really busy lately! Moving, looking for jobs, graduating and a bunch of life stuff in general - but I finally got around to making this year's E3 comic! ...Sadly, I didn't find as much to parody as with last years, so there's not really as many jokes as I wanted to do... Also, I'm still working on the backgrounds and more details, but uploading this for now at least!

"What's a "video game"? I'm not sure we're even in that business anymore..."

Up until he gives the game to Microsoft and Sony as well.

New MS buzzword that died as fast as it arrived. People do not even get what teraflops are. It is like blast processing all over again :D

I am so, SO hyped for that M2 remake :D
I do not mind it is 2.5D (Dracula X Chronicles was as well) but I hope it is really close to M2 without Other M kind of stuff.
Also looking forward to Bloodstained!

Indeed... but as long as it sounds like cool and powerful specs that's what gets people hyped about specs

And yeah, it looks really nice :3 Good to see Metroid back, with 2 games too!

I'm curious to see how you handle Atari. Will it be her appearance returning to what it was in the 70's and 80's? Her regaining some of her life? Something like a middle ground with kind of lightish red (no Donut, not pink) hair?

Hmm... yeah, that could be considered, I'll have to do something about the new console at least...

I'm sorry if I sound like an investor, but I'll say my piece on the matter. Switch is a good console, especially with how Nintendo has basically set it at one big release per month, but it needs four things to make it a great one.

1. Better voice chat, or at least overhaul the app per user complaints
2. An actual internet browser
3. Better third party support
4. Get that virtual console up and running, especially if it includes games up to the GameCube era
