Wrong Man for the Job

TimA bizarre comic for a bizarre character. I’m not sure what else to say except that Crash is another one of those mascot characters who has become more or less irrelevant due to some shoddy games and a pretty liberal use of the franchise. Sonic is almost in the same boat but is saved because he’s more popular, is a better designed character, and has starred in some decent handheld titles lately. I was never a huge fan of the Crash universe as far as design goes; it was just never very appealing to me. I did like the early games though because they were quality titles and I thoroughly enjoyed Crash Team Racing, the best Mario Kart knockoff ever made. Anyway, hope you all enjoy this as we celebrate 2P START!’s first anniversary!

    Crash should be in Brawl. With Mega Man. X.

    Funny comic guys, took me a second to get it though.

    I don’t exactly see how crash could be in there when snake is already handeling explosives……. Neither mega man, I say mega man is too much like a samus…

    I really hate to get technical but that’s like saying Kirby is too much like Mario. Megaman, unlike Samus, could charge on the move. Granted his blasts would likely be weakened because of that. Also, Megaman could siphon abilities like Kirby which is a play style completely removed from Samus. Granted, if Megaman ever gets put in, he would have to be nerfed hardcore…

    Haha, nice one!

    Happy b’day 2P START

    Keep up the good work!!!

    WOO!!!! ONE-YEAR!!!! That’s a long while guys. Congrats! :mrgreen:

    Anyways, nice comic made me laugh after I got it(took a sec). And I think Megaman Zero would ROCK(<- slight joke) in brawl, he has many close range and far range potential, especially with all his different weapons(and I’m a Zero fan :mrgreen: ).

    There one thing missing! You should have labled the dynamite “Nitro”!
    Oh, and I don’t understand how you can compare crash to sonic? I love sonic and friends but crash is just…. shallow. (NOT saying that sonic is extremely deep though)

  8. lukas says:

    congratulations
    I like crash and I dont care waht anybody says

    Happy birth…er… anniversary!!!
    Crash is like The Noid, Nobody loves them.

    Heh. Funny comic, it made me chuckle. But you’ve got it all wrong; we all know that Crash would jump on the TNT and THEN run away spinning like a maniac… And since when did explosions sound like “KRAHROOOM!!”?

    =D

    Happy anniversary, guys.

    And by the way, Crash? That just came out of the blue (his last game was release months ago if I remeber right), but funny nevertheless. Did you just found Crash of the Titans at home or something like that?

    And it’s just me, or did anybody notice that people simply won’t stop talking about Smash Bros? I mean, not that it’s a bad thing, it just that it reminds me of the pain of the waiting. The pain, the pain…

    Happy anniversary guys. Going to have some “fun” tonight. *wink* *wink*

  13. Dj75728 says:

  14. lwelyk says:

    Seconded.

    I admit I liked Crash when he was with Naughty Dog. After he was sold off for cheap labour it went downhill far and fast. Sonic has been ALMOST the same cause the same company has owned him for over how many years now? I’m remembering the first ad for the Crash game on TV in mind now with him and a megaphone yelling towards the nintendo building (ah the good old days)

    “Until our swords cross again”

    Sams club stores are going to be selling Brawl for $44, and is having a midnight release for the game too. So if you have a Sams Club membership go reserve(yes reserve) brawl at Sams and get it midnight(I know I will).

    P.S. Each store will also have around twenty(20) wii’s in stock around that time/day. Info regarding Brawl and Sams here -> http://kotaku.com/354633/sams-club-climbs-aboard-on-the-smash-bros-bandwagon

    Hey, congratulations on one year. I’ve been reading since the very beginning and I love the comic. Here’s to a great year and hopefully several more to come! Thanks for the comics and keep up the great work.
