Boss Fight

October 4, 2017 by Tim

Arrrgh! Look at that progress bar! I was soooooo close! That boss is such a pain in the ass. Those rejected ideas he throws do a ton of damage.

So if I’m not in the right headspace to write a comic, and I write a comic about not being able to write a comic, which in its own way is writing a comic, then did I ever actually have writer’s block?

Anyway… Cuphead is awesome.

I like how the launch trailer is letterboxed 4:3.

Yep forget which rule of the internet it is but prety much if it exists, porn involving it will show up on the internet in short order. Then there’s the corollary that states if it doesn’t exist the internet will make porn of it anyway.

It is Rule 34: “If it exists, there is porn of it – no exceptions”

Most annoying thing about that game … when you see someone glide through it on their first try (saw a streamer go through it in 5 hours like that … 🙁 ).

Cuphead is really making it hard for me to keep my rule of only buying games when they go on sale-I’ve been following it’s progress for a while and really want to give it a try! Very affordable price too, I may break my rule for it…hrmm.

Thing is because the price is already so low I don’t think a sale would really ever happen its already at sale price. Plus its a really good game well worth the price and if more people support it then we can get more games like it.

Yes. Cuphead is awesome. You are correct in this Tim. ._.

Mind you that doesn’t stop me from wanting to fling my controller across the room and curse like a drunken sailor after dying for the fifteenth time in a row.

Imagine playing it with your 5 years old boy… man . He’s such a little troll, I have to keep reviving him through but he keeps saying that the fault was mine, plus: Dad, this game is wrong! Where’s the little heart above the boss! How I’m supposed to know if I’m going to to win!

You know, the art style of Cuphead looks like a Demented Disney Movie Gone Wrong.
Jjjjjjuuust saying. Like watching Pink Elephants on parade over and over again.

Look up Max Fleischer and Fleischer Studios. I’m about 99% sure that’s the inspiration.

This is like the best one-off comic / game tribute. That is fantastic art.

Also, if a gigantic block with that sort of maniacal grin materialized over my own desk and tried to kill me, I think I’d stop writing for a while. Or just lay off the scotch.

While the art is indeed fantastic, I just can’t play games that look and feel this…strange. It makes my stomach churn and my brain frizzle. No idea why, but it really makes me wanna shed my skin and run away

At least in that game if something is hidden in the background, you’ll always be able to tell if it’s going to change or move!! Love that art style. hashtag technicolor hashtag that rock is going to move hashtag see i told you
