Well, Ray and I are pretty jazzed about last week’s comic. We were finally included on Joystiq’s Weekly Webcomic Wrapup (thanks Ross!) and would you believe it? We’re going to win! We would have been fine with just making the ballot, but to beat out Penny Arcade and the other established webcomics will be very encouraging (as of this writing we haven’t been declared the winners yet). Having a bigger audience and getting recognition that our comics are good is rewarding enough for us. We were just having fun doing it, so this is a bonus! Anyway, this week’s comic stems from a discussion Ray and I had last week while sorting out the ‘300’ comic. He mentioned something about Nintendo’s delays and proverbial drought and said they should make an Everybody Waits Channel. Boom! An idea was born. Unfortunately, we went through dozens of ‘failed channel’ ideas before landing with these 4. We probably put more thought into this one than all the others combined. I’m not sure if that’s good or bad, but let us know what you think.
The Rejected Rejected
We had a number of other ideas for rejected channels that we didn’t include for various reasons.
“Sonic Doesn’t Suck Channel”
“Wii Availability Channel”
“Good News Channel” (there would be none)
“Sweat Shop Channel”
“Wii Hygiene Channel”
The list goes on… including one where it gave you a random person’s Wii Friend Code and it was up to you to find out who it was by tracking them down through the internet. Oh, and let’s not forget a rumor channel. NiGHTS, anyone?
