Better kill myself. Just to be safe.

Ah, good old Ethan! For a minute I thought he gained a bit of common sense, with the reboot. Phew! 🙂

Considering all that he’s done, I’d say….more than was expected, less than is needed.

Why worry? If it is he’ll just respawn.

The scary potential of a very, very dark sequence with him… Okya, off to drink coffee, must have coffee now.

There’s a reason characters like Wolverine and Deadpool are either snarling, hyper agressive assholes or giggling lunatics. They heal from anything and put themselves in situations where they’re likely to take damage that would kill most people.

Ethan seems to be leaning more towards “PG Deadpool.” Maybe PG13 for language.

I read a story once, where the main character was stuck in a time loop, … anything touching her when she ‘respawned’ was also carried through with her, but if it was living it died. So she had the bright idea to bring a phoenix in with her … the phoenix kept dieing, and bursting into flames rapidly sucking the oxygen out of the room, causing her to get caught in a respawn loop

Oh, is he an IGN reviewer when he’s not running a game store and fighting crime? ?

It started sticking to him and wouldn’t let go! Of course he had to defend himself!

No it is not poisonous, but it can block the small intestines, resulting and a visit to the ER, resulting to a move to the operating room were the doctors will cut a four to eight inch long opening to the intestines and pull them out to find the blockage and then remove by cutting open the intestines and the sewing then back together and and closing you back up. Expect a stay in the hospital of eight to ten days. and a massive bill, and be out of work for two months.

I have a feeling that having a kid is very influential to the author’s process and I like that.

Obviously Ethan played too much Final Fantasy, so it was impossible for him to see Garland as anything other than a boss fight. Mystery solved!

It’s good to see the A&D Ethan still has some of his old CAD Ethan characteristics. Merry Christmas Tim

Garland is very bad for you- a little bit isn’t too much of an issue, but if you have a lot of it then you will end up with a thriving mass of Chaos in your gullet. If you accidentally ingest a large amount of Garland, be sure to get plenty of light and avoid time travel. A quick trip to the ER won’t hurt either.

It’s Ethan.
Man, can you imagine what life must have been for Ethan parents when he was a little child? XD

“Ethan, do you want to go to that Chinese restaurant for your birthday?” was asked once, long ago.

It took them 5 years to successfully clean up the fallout.

Now I kinda wanna see some flashbacks to when Lucas and Ethan were children. XDDD

Depending on how much, and what length the garland was, it would almost be better if it WAS poisonous.

I mean, has anyone ever had a dog who liked to eat hair or string? It’s not exactly fun to extract afterwards.

Don’t worry, Lucas is a skilled user of the classic “Fist-to-the-Gut” maneuver.

Latest note in advertisement annoyance: Grab adds auto-enables sound. Heard it twice thus far despite not remotely having my mouse in that corner…

The blinking of the xmas lights was sending secret binary messages to the Ninja Robots, then Ethan epically fought against the evil lights swallowing some garland in the process.
