I keep getting auto-redirect ads (I was able to identify artulenia.com in the redirect chain) when browsing on Android Chrome.

That’s a relief. I’ve been getting that too on Windows 10 Chrome. And the redirect ads don’t let me come back here. I have to got to cad-comic.com and manually navigate back to today’s comic.

Patience.
She is part of the timeline but was butterfly effected out of Lucas’s and as such Ethan’s lives. She’s currently the Videogames columnist of the ONN, which is the generic newspaper of the city.
So, she should pop up soon.

The only thing that I don’t get with them is the whole spending their own money to give their competition money lol. I mean Ethan “I will spend thousands of dollars in order to get an early copy of Oblivion and fail miserably” might, but not Lucas!

You seem to forget, that while these look and have the same names – it isnΒ΄t the same characters from the past.

I dunno that that’s true. Ethan and Lucas are VERY similar to their old versions, except they seem to be better written. Lucas is a little more human and flawed, and Ethan is a little more toned down. Personally, reading the last couple of strips felt very comfortably like I was reading pre-reset CAD.

I like to think that the Time Machine from the end of 1.0 had a Reset button and Ethan hit that instead by accident.

Speaking of the Time Machine, This Ethan feels like he is somewhere between “Zekepocalypse Ethan” and “Sane Ethan” (featuring his own personal brand of shock therapy) in terms of intelligence, but between Zekepocalypse and 1.0 Ethan in terms of sanity. He’s definitely had to learn some life lessons, and as such is a different permutation of Ethan- but he is still Ethan.

Still never preordered a game. Mostly because by the time I can afford one the game’s been out for months if not years.

Why not? It is the Internet and who cares about things like FACTS and REASONING on the Internet?

I thought that the storyline with the Troll established this Lucas as a Sony man? Or is this game some sort of XBOX exclusixe? I’ve never been one to get some pre-order because of gear. If it’s great stuff, then it just means that I spend much of the game wandering ignoring all the other equipment for one item which slowly gets old; if it’s a beginning-level item, then it doesn’t seem worth it. Reminds me of when I started Morrowind how long ago, was ambushed by the Dark Brotherhood, and got that amazing OP gear. I couldn’t NOT use… Read more »

Sony is but one vein of awesomeness, for true connection to the Gods of Gaming you must establish connection to all paths to awesomeness.

Nay, my son; all paths lead to enlightenment, save one: beware the temptress of the Freemium mobile game, for the road to damnaction is straight, gentle, and paved with microtransactions.

Wait but there ARE games which are mobile and are not only fun but have borderline unnecessary transactions.
Explain.

In my opinion if someone WANTS to preorder that’s fine. If the Store adds in a bonus with no effect on the game (such as Sun and Moon’s map of alola) or one that can be obtained in game without spending almost the entirety of the gameplay getting it, that’s fine. What ISN’T fine is when a gameplay bonus is given that is otherwise unobtainable, like that gun for Destiny 2 that is a preorder bonus. That’s like a shiv stab and a smack towards anyone who tries to get the game a few months later and then catch up.… Read more »
