A Turn of Events

TimI know this task wasn’t easy for Ray since a woman is never happy with the way she looks, but even though she doesn’t look exactly like the real Sarah, she’s hot enough to be cartoon-Tim’s wife. Also, I get a kick out of the exaggerated Tim on the couch in the first panel, since I’ve never shown that much emotion before in my life. I am picking up Wii Fit today as part of a cornucopia of birthday presents for my wife, so we’ll see how true to life this comic is. She’s really into fitness, so I’m hoping she enjoys Wii Fit as it seems right up her alley. Maybe we’ll have her on the podcast to share some thoughts next week.

RayI can’t say I’m real great at drawing females, so I wasn’t looking forward to drawing my friend’s wife. Especially when I had to send e-mails like this: “Hey Tim, this is going to sound a little creepy at face value, but… could you send me some pictures of your wife?”

    Oh good. I already have the real picture of Sarah and the Mii version. Now I have the 2P-start! Sarah to add to my closet mural. 😛

    I just LOVE Tim’s expression in the first panel! So that’s what he’d kinda look those with googly eyes (see comic #58 last panel If you see what I mean…) Keep it Up but watch out… My ‘2pSTART! Mutany’ (see podcasts #28 and #29) will come to this site sooner than you think *evil laugh*

    Good luck with that Tim, hope she likes it. I was considering picking one up for the wifey too.

    😆 lol 😆

    Nice comic once again. Thats the bad thing about casual gaming; they steal our play time!

    I get the feeling this is how it is going to be in my household. Oh where will the time for my mario kart and brawl go to now?

    NCG, won’t be getting wiifit myself, maybe for my mother 😕

  7. Izaccthefrost says:

    NCG and um not to be a grammer freak but in Tim’s little explaination it should be “I’ve never shown…” not “I’ve never showed” just throwin’ that out there. Tim if I were you I’d join your hot wife… Just sayin’

    Thanks, fixed the grammar. And I do plan on joining in the Wii Fit festivities, although I hope you’re not implying that I’m OBESE. I fully expect Wii Fit to tell me I’m in my normal range for BMI. Don’t you know you look 10 pounds heavier in comics?

    TIM face look so funny XD

  10. Haniko says:

    The comic itself ain’t funny.
    Tim’s face on the other hand if ROFLCOPTOR worthy.

    I think you guys should do an Ace Attorney comic. I already have an idea if you guys want to use it.
    Apollo: *Perceives Mia in Maya’s body* OMFG!
    Trucy: What’s wrong Apollo? You look kind of freaked out…. *nervous animation*
    Apollo: B-B-B-B- BUSTEH GLOREH! *drools*
    Mia: ?
    Trucy: Apollo, you’re scaring me. You’ve never been like this before!
    Apollo: *gets ready to pounce on Mia*
    Godot: *sips coffee* ENOUGH! *points visor at Apollo* I’m CHARGIN MAH LAZA!
    Phoenix: O_o I never knew that thing could shoot lasers…
    Kristoph Gavin: HAY GUYZ WATS UP! *vaporized by Godot’s laser*
    Apollo: *pounces* FOR BUSTEH GLOREH!
    Trucy: MY EYES!

    […]

    That… sounds… stupid… And I don’t even know the full story behind any Ace Attorney games.

    Anyhow, nice comic guys. Short and sweet and pretty funny to boot! 🙂 “The tables have turned…”

    GAh. Look, there’s a reason no one replied when you posted that on the last comic: It’s a really stupid idea. You’re taking Ace Attorney and just adding really stupid stuff to it. Graba! This is pretty much the dumbest idea ever. Although I kinda hope you find an artist to draw your comics though. I would laugh at them a lot. Well laugh at you thinking they’re funny anyway.

    I’ve experienced this before, unfortunately with DDR (Dance Dance Revolution)

    no.. WAY!!!

    WHERE THE HECK ARE NUBBY ELBOWS!!!!!!!!!

    Nubby elbows are for guys only, kinda like adam’s apples.

    Is that Dr. Pepper I see in Tim’s hand?

    I have an idea too……don’t do one. Not to mention the fact that VGCats did an Ace Attorney comic like two weeks back.

    Is that Dr. Pepper I see in Tim’s hand?

    Once again, Dr.Pepper is Tim’s “Lifeblood”, he drinks it all the time, it’s like water to him. How many times has this been said now? 3, 4?

    sorry Tim I didn’t realize it sounded like that. I don’t think you’re obese, will you ever forgive me?

    If you look closely at the can, it looks like the same one from awhile back. Myabe he is just SLOWLY drinking out of that one can. Maybe the comic needs a higher budget so they can afford a fully stocked mini-fridge 🙂

    my mum got wii fit the day it came out here
    since then i havent been aloud on my wii at all really

    and i think now it is hers she wont let me
    remove it from the house with out her permission
    @_@
    i fink nintendo should just make a crazy shooter
    and use the wii board as like a duck’n’cover type thing

    then it would be cool
    sorry fully ranted ther 😕

    great comic btw :]

  21. Rokai says:

    Can I get a picture of Tim’s wife too? 😀

  22. tustin says:

    […] i fink nintendo should just make a crazy shooter

    All the board could really do is tell which way your leaning, it couldn’t tell if you were ducking – it needs heat sensors for that. Not to mention that 75% of gamers wouldn’t want to stand when playing any video game that doesn’t require you to go through the motions to play (eg. WiiSports, WiiFit) 🙂

  23. Andrew says:

    The board can tell when you stand up, and probably if you duck quickly too. Of course, it could work for leaning around corners.

  24. Christian says:

    I love how he looks like a completely different species than her.

  25. Saturn2888 says:

    Sorry to be mean, well… Sorry to be honest :P, but that has to be the WORST drawing Ray has done. And the most pathetic thing? While my sister maybe could draw better than that (as most would state), I could not.

    From Tim’s comment. Seriously, that has to be the best part of the comic. Tim being excited and going crazy like that? That was far funnier than the joke to me. And the Yoga thing, I completely understand where you’re putting in the appeal, but isn’t that, if cartoon Tim was that concerned about his masculinity, he would be holding a can of beer and making sexual innuendos during the entire portion of the yoga session? Well… Of course that wouldn’t make for a very funny comic, or would it? It would have sexual stuff, some sort of addiction? I forget what you guys said waaaaay back in the day of what gets you on the top of the Joystiq weekly comic wrap-up.

    Popular video game character + Pop culture reference + sex/drugs = Winner.

    I think thats what it was. either way i liked this comic, although i cant say much on wii fit, since i dont have it. or a wii at all. :l
