Gabe does something stupid and video-game-related, and Tycho hates him for it and shows off his vocabulary. Every single episode is like that. On top of it, you have Nirvana-syndrome: Somebody makes something good, or at least decent, and then everyone rips it off, and the quality steadily decreases. So now, you have a million little Penny Arcades running around, and each one's worse than the last. But that's not really their fault.
There are far too many webcomics around. It's next to impossible to try and get a foothold. There's millions of gaming ones, which really annoys me.
But then, I try to only really stick to two gaming-related webcomics. Penny Arcade and Ctrl+Alt+Del. The latter tends to have more of a progressive storyline, but stops when I'm just starting to get into a story arc.
On a related note, I'm taking the HL2 episode pack back. Steam wants me to download a whole bunch of updates so it can work. But my download limit is, well, limited. How rude of Steam.
It's a legitimate copy and I'm still having problems with it! What is wrong with them?
A flap of the wings yesterday means big changes tomorrow.
Let's work together to keep the present inevitable.
So yeah, I went and got a blog.
