And if any of them are loaded with the M-2020 “Spider” man-portable heavy assault rifles, and they bunk down and enter sleep mode for the night, they’ll wake up with unrecoverable memory issues, forget everything about their mission, and brick. *LOL*

I think that’s because of their weapon’s codename. it has “2020” in it. Bad luck.

When I saw them in the panel I thought of the turrets in Portal.

The PS5 transport is as ugly as the console itself, am I the only one happy with the PS4 Pro and waiting for a Slim version?

Actually I like the transport way more than the console. Can I have one of those…?

Can’t wait to see them try to go through a doorway and bonk their heads on the top of the doorjamb.

The one on our right seems to have a huge jockstrap. It took me way too long to realise that’s actually the knee.

Say what you want about the actual design of the console, their Console Wars design is badass.

Sony should hire Tim for their designs.

Dude, badass soldier design!
Really like how the “magazines” in this case are the many games Xbone’s command brought and now gave them a lot of “firepower”. And I just love how the “generations” of the Xboxes and PSXs are so different looking yet all belong to the same team with its inner quarrels and struggles.^^

I think at some point in time id like to see all the console soldiers side by side to see how theyve evolved over the series

That would make for an interesting poster or something like that. We saw the colonial Nintendo people meeting up with the Atari natives but never saw Sega or any other consoles between them and the recent gens. Also, and this might honestly be too heavy a subject to touch on in a gaming comic, it would be interesting to see his take on Sega slowly losing the console war and eventually being absorbed into Nintendo.

A family tree poster that shows the evolution would be pretty cool. Tim could also create some designs for some of the others that are missing from the story line, like the Segas, and show their family tree branch dying out. I’d buy that.

Like a hallway with the pictures of the ancestors until you reach the new age with Holograms showing the newest generation. Yeah, I’d like that. Like some sort of history museum for game stations.

ive said it before and had all of the rest of you jump on me saying “blah blah he is an artist you dont tell an artist what to do” but he really needs to stick with the console wars, they are by and far his best and most interesting strip. and as a consumer of the art. i demand it!

i have a great idea – message Tim privately and commission console wars. otherwise shut up and let Tim go at the pace he wants to

Why should I shut up? if anything I should get paid for my business consultation.

I generaly agree. CW does work better as a periodic series when theres some interesting commentary to be had.

That said it would be cool to see a poster or a filler strip at some point of the family tree of each of the major combatants in the ongoing wars. That or spoof that evolution of man image (fish>ape>neanderthal>man) but with successive console generations instead.

I agree. That said, I wouldn’t mind some more action strips, getting the payoff from reveals like this. If these soldiers are so miraculously badass as to turn the tide, what does that look like? That sort of thing.

That being said, I really really enjoy the strips with the “PS4 Squad” especially when you add a gaming spin to war movie chatter.

I strongly disagree. Starcaster Chronicles is the best one, IMO.

I’d just love to see a console wars game with your work the driving force behind it.

Reminds me of Halo 2 of all things:
“When I asked for reinforcements, I never thought they’d send a Spartan!”
