After last strip when you think he blew it with all the mashed up innuendoes, and turns out she returned one at the end before leaving. Might not be a full step, but a half step forward is STILL PROGRESS!

1/2 a step is still a step. It’s like 1/2 a hole.

K I’m not a massive gamer and have no knowledge about overlord. Can someone explain the D.VA Main bit to me. Searching for it has made it clear it’s overlord related but I can’t find a clear answer that makes me understand the meaning.

D.Va is a character in the game Overwatch, the Tracer Ethan mentioned is another character. She’s saying she plays D.Va as her main character in that game.

I had to google it, too because I never played overwatch. There are only three names i know. Tracer, Mei and Hanzo (and I think the last one was because of a CAD Comic page).

Interestingly at the end it seemed to work for Ethan.

…Damnit! I wish this woman existed in real life. It’s hard to find single female gamers nowadays, not to mention combined with a healthy dose of tolerance toward awkwardness. 😛

Since this is 2.0, I hope that, maybe just maybe, Emily sticks around with Ethan. Who knows? Maybe she also has super powers, and Lilah is Lucas’s girlfriend?

What you do is, find a non-gamer and convert them. My girlfriend isn’t a gamer by any means, but she is a huge nerd (love star wars, harry potter, etc). She’s also a horror fan. I bought her the Friday the 13th game on steam, and she loves it. It definitely made her understand my love for gaming, and I’m slowly working on getting her to try other games. She likes watching me play Dark Souls

I feel like Lilah will NOT be Lucas’s girlfriend. Maybe not necessarily Ethan’s, but definitely not anyone else of the main crew. (Except for maybe a mystery character yet to be revealed?)
Speaking of which, I imagine Christian (ultra-rich jerk who is 1.0 Lilah’s ex) is the head of MegaGame. If Ted is an antagonist, he probably was rescued by someone other than Scott.

I think this is actually one of my favourite strips ever. The build up was good, but that last panel is epic and responsible for strange looks from my colleagues!

I like Emily. She’s natural and has a good mixture of smart, funny and awkward when appropriate.
And then there’s the last panel with Evan’s face and posture, Scott’s banner and Lucas narrating. Awesome.

Holy crap, she liked his big packages dumb line! And she’s a gamer! Who knows how to tease him too! Hope this is not the last time we see her again. Also loved Lucas and Scott going all WOOOOOOT over Ethan’s “first round”. XD

The “Mission Accomplished” banner was good too, and I think the symbolism is apt. This isnt going to go the way they think it is.

She’s going to die. Calling it now. Ethan’ll probably end up with Lilah one way or another.

Glad to see it didn’t end in murder
I wasn’t actually expecting it to, its just fun to speculate XD
However…
It’s sad knowing that something probably won’t last.
Maybe.

I want one of the full sets, but every time i proceed to check out since the first time the set was announced, the site say ” We cannot ship to Mexico”. Another way to get one set? Thanks.

If you are close to the border and can cross, you could just ship to one of the cities near the border and go across to grab it

“MISSION ACCOMPLISHED”

Is that a foreshadowing?

If that banner is anything to go by, this is going to end in failure.

Can’t remember the last time I laughed out loud at a webcomic, but that triumphant panel at the end took the cake.
