My Cup Runneth Over

TimWe’re not trying to say that Crackdown was only purchased for the Halo 3 beta, we’re just saying that people were holding onto it even after they beat it solely for the Halo 3 beta. And who can blame them? I haven’t personally seen the phenomenon portrayed in this comic, but let’s just say I doubt EB or GameStop are going to be out of copies of Crackdown any time soon. I think they did right to include the Halo 3 beta in Crackdown. They could have included it in a really crappy game that no one wanted just to boost sales, but instead it was included in a game that appealed to the same crowd as Halo 3 and was a great game in its own right. While sales of Crackdown were certainly boosted by the promise of the chance to play Halo 3 early, I’m sure gamers were happy to find out they weren’t just paying $60 for that chance. This brings me to a few fun poll questions:

    Chuckle. Ah, a good time. That would be rather… intimidating to be faced with a wall like that. Chilling.

    Haha, my vote tied up the Crackdown Sequel poll.

    Nice comics, adding it to my infinite list of gaming webcomics to check everyday.

    Jajaja, liked how he passes the binoculars.
    I dont know what Crackdown is…but sounds as if a junkie paid the ultimate price.

  6. It’s true. I went to trade mine in and they only offered me $10. Better than Perfect Dark Zero, I suppose, which goes for around $3. I kept both of them.

    How come just about everyone looks like they have tumors on their elbows?!

  8. Ray says:

    For some reason, I’ve always included round nubs on everyone’s elbows as a style choice. If you were to ask me, “why?” I really couldn’t tell you. I’ve just never stopped doing it…

  9. The Voice says:

    Hahaha… the kid looks like the character from Fable.
    For people who have played the game and seen the cut-scenes the outlines and shading is uncanny.
    You guys do great work, now added to my favorites list.

    Does the panel with the crackdown boxes through binnoculars have a separate layer under it that goes through the entire page?

    I once went in to Gamestop to to a trade-in on a mother lode of Gamecube titles (this was before the Wii). For about fourteen titles they payed me eight dollars. This comic strikes a chord.

    This reminds of when Square shipped out the FF8 demo with Brave Fencer Musashi. Sure, people only bought it for the demo, and then were mildly surprised to get a decent action-RPG title in the package.
