Feels, amplified

March 6, 2017 by Tim

I’m not going to pretend I’ve ever been some sort of super macho hardass; when something gets me in the feels, it gets me. Long have I been one to get misty eyed at love stories, or tragedies or what-have-you. I’m talking about when you’re multiple seasons into a show and they drop some big […]

Patron Milestone

March 3, 2017 by Tim

Hey, we’re not too far away from our next milestone on Patron! If we hit the mark, every Patron will get an exclusive Ethan and Lucas one shot each month. That’s on top of the one that $5 Patrons receive! So even if you only pledge $1, if we reach the milestone, your pledge will […]

Update on EU Bookset Orders

February 28, 2017 by Tim

So here’s the latest on the pallet of Ctrl+Alt+Del 1.0 books heading to EU for distribution: The paperwork has been filled out, the freight cost has been paid, I’m now just waiting for the pallet to board the ship. This step took a little longer because the distributor wanted to rebox the sets before sending […]

Ghost Recon

February 27, 2017 by Tim

I dabbled a bit in some Ghost Recon over the weekend. I’ll be honest, me and the game got off on the wrong foot. After launching it, it switched my audio output and then forced itself to default to my secondary display (my drawing apparatus, clearly identified as secondary in Windows). Switching my audio back […]

That Ochoko Shame

February 22, 2017 by Tim

It drives me bananas when I summon someone someone into one of my Souls-y games, only to have them die right off the bat. The feeling is so much worse when it’s me that derps my way out of someone else’s game. Ochoko cups aren’t impossible to farm… Nioh is littered with the graves of other […]

EU Book Orders

February 10, 2017 by Tim

Note: Over half of the books going overseas are now spoken for, fyi. I’ve received enough interest in shipping a pallet of books over to the EU that I believe it’s worth doing. So with that said, let’s get the ball rolling. In the last post I pointed out that shipping one of these heavy […]

Nioh

by Tim

A lot of times when I say “if you love Dark Souls, you’ll love this game”, I have to follow it up with “but it probably won’t change people’s minds if they aren’t fans of that genre.” The first part of that statement holds true for Nioh; if you’re a fan of Dark Souls/Bloodborne, you […]

UK/EU Book Orders Are A Go!

February 6, 2017 by Tim

Note: Just about half of the books going overseas are now spoken for, fyi. I’ve received enough interest in shipping a pallet of books over to the EU that I believe it’s worth doing. So with that said, let’s get the ball rolling. In the last post I pointed out that shipping one of these […]

UK/EU Book Orders Are A Go!

February 3, 2017 by Tim

I’ve received enough interest in shipping a pallet of books over to the EU that I believe it’s worth doing. So with that said, let’s get the ball rolling. In the last post I pointed out that shipping one of these heavy books from the US to the EU costs over $200 (book + shipping), […]

Starcaster #5

January 28, 2017 by Tim

If you like your Starcaster in the high-res PDF variety, you can grab issue #5 now from the store (or by being a Patron at $3+).

Alright, so, before Christmas I talked about how I was investigating methods to achieve some cheaper shipping rates on the massively heavy Ctrl+Alt+Del 1.0 book set for readers across the pond. The book set is a whopping 17 pounds (10 years worth of comics is no joke), and to get a copy from the US […]

Page 2?

January 18, 2017 by Tim

Happy Winter-een-mas! So, this story represents a couple of firsts that I want to take a moment to explain in detail. Yes, you’re seeing this story start at page two. Page one was this month’s Patreon exclusive comic for the $5 tier. The $5 Patron tier gets an exclusive Ethan and Lucas comic each month, […]

Ctrl+Alt+Del on Patreon

January 17, 2017 by Tim

I know a lot of people use some variation of an adblocker software, and while I certainly won’t begrudge anyone that choice, ads are the primary way a website like mine stays in business. This is what I do for a living after all, it’s how I feed my family, so it’s hard to be entirely ambivalent […]

Nintendo Switch

January 11, 2017 by Tim

Tomorrow we finally get the big livestream reveal of the Switch where, hopefully, we’ll get some details about this sucker. I’ve been anxiously waiting for this event so I can work on adding the Switch to the Console Wars, so hopefully they’re nice and forthcoming with the specifics. Moreover… I just hope it’s good, man. […]

Mass Effect Me

January 9, 2017 by Tim

I’m a little concerned about on-the-fly class changing in Mass Effect Andromeda, but I’m going to reserve true panic until we know the details behind how and why it works. If I’m being honest, I was more bothered by the combat portion of the trailer, where Ryder ran into the middle of a group of enemies […]

Let It Die

January 6, 2017 by Tim

I can’t seem to decide how I feel about Let It Die. I know for sure I have not played enough to have set an opinion in stone, let’s be clear about that. It is a game I need to experience more of, because I can tell I’ve merely scratched a surface (or gods, at […]
