Oh Gods is the best.

If you mean the expression “Oh Gods,” I agree wholeheartedly.

I embraced it when I was a teen, practicing until it became a natural reaction. One that lasts to this day (39).

Yeah, freakin’ GEEK xD

My family replaces all common uses of “God” with “Science.”
Science damn-it!
Praise Science!
“Achoooo!” – Science bless you!

I highly recommend it.

Let’s go ahead and assume that I’m just asking this for the benefit of others… but what does it mean when a game has gone gold?

It is back from the non-online publishing era where the master copy of the game media was created and sent to the printer for the physical media to be produced in volume. It meant that the game was finished.

It has little value now, really; With online distribution, patches and DLCs V1.0 doesn’t mean much anymore, but back then it was the end of the road.

It means that it’s no longer in development. The game is finished and the Publisher is now preparing to release it,while the Developers fully turn to working on the patches and first DLC.

And for the extra trivia, the master media was typically a gold CD or later DVD, which is the source of the expression: Gone gold.

Hmm. You know, I have my doubts as to the snuggle-worthiness of Schrodingers cat after a month in a box without food or water.

Ghost of Tsushima is definitely a GOTY contender, and I can’t wait to play it.

I’ve been waiting for the game for as long as I heard it was in development. Might not be for everyone, but it’s the game I’ve been waiting for the longest (outside of FFVII Remake (Which is now released) and Cyberpunk (pushed back til the Fall)). Still hyped with their recent video on gameplay and showing off the environments. July 17th couldnt come sooner!

With my backlog, it’ll be a PS5 title for me.

Any analogy that involves a cat getting snuggled is a good analogy.

I’m torn between this comment and the one Johnny 5 made. They both make sense, yet state completely the opposite.
You know what? Screw it, I’m upvoting both.

Is the shirt that Lucas is wearing available for purchase by any chance?

Honestly, looks like m/any of the generic designs seen on basic pullover tees at places like walmart, hot topic, or spencers. I’d start there. xD

I do get that feeling that sometimes the anticipation of the game is greater than the end result.

Especially when it comes to games that are trying new things.

Ah, a good part of that was exaggerated marketing too though.

And a healthy dose of people not understanding what “Procedurally Generated” means

It’s funny that this one is coming right after a strip about demos and not auto-buying games…

By the will of the writer. The same way “Friends” had huge affordable apartments and could skip out of work to sit in the same spot in a coffee shop every episode, or “How I Met Your Mother”, only in a bar.
