Wii Quit

TimI think Wii Fit is a big enough phenomenon to have two comics, right? This was a fun one to do, hopefully not too offensive as it’s primarily a dig at the game’s shortcomings (telling kids they’re fat, a 330 lb. weight limit, possibility of ‘cheating’) and Nintendo’s ability to sell anything to everyone! In addition to this week’s comic, we have a bonus comic for you from D3vin and dj75728! We didn’t use it as a guest strip because we had a great idea for this week and while the humor is quirky and the art style isn’t as polished as Ray’s, we still enjoyed it because of the dedication of these two fans willing to make a comic for us. They even went to the trouble of making a custom logo and avatar image, so I had to put it all together!

    You got a slight chuckle out of this. Not because of the play on words (Okay, that too) but because of Miyamoto’s face.

    Except for wiiSit you should have fit all of Tim and his wife on the board, the exact position they were in in the last panel of the comic with Tim’s wife.

    NCG!

    ProFit: Guaranteed to take 5 pounds off your wallet.

    I especially like the shadows on the cases for each game.

    Awww…

    Not fair!

    Also, in regards to the guest strip… I think MK vs DC is an awesome idea…

    Anyway, great comic this week, guys. Just do me a favor, no MGS4 strips… I don’t want to have to compete against you guys once my new strip goes line June 12th.

    sheppy,
    Nice! I didn’t know we copied your title there, but this has happened many times with us and Dueling Analogs. Still the comics were different enough I think. Also, we DO have a MGS4 comic planned, but I’m not sure when we’ll do it, so consider yourself warned!

  7. sheppy says:

    Dude, I’m not worried, it’s the easiest play on words ever. As for the MGS4 strip, guess I have to bust my ass on it now. My biggest challenge right now is basically the characters and environments are all going to be 3D but in a bit of a PSX/N64 era of graphics….

    As you can imagine the modeling is the biggest thing taking up my time. It’s a big amount of work to get started but once it’s done, it’s a snap to complete.

  9. Why am I hearing Miyamoto in the final panel going “nom nom nom nom mmmmm nom nom nom i needs mores”

    on another thought, i got to the site and was like, it looks like a “going green” comic by the header

  10. D3vin says:

    Good comic, It seems Dj and I have some rivals in the comic biz :P. Too bad I don’t have a next-gen system so I could make some next-gen jokes and parodies…

  11. Rioluke says:

    NCG

    Hah. seethrough fatty.

    I think it would have been smarter to have the actuall wiifit first then they scroll down and see the mocks. It was spot on brilliant anyway though.

    The point of WiiSit was that you sit and play the game. Tim’s wife was playing it the way it was supposed to be played in the last comic, while Tim here is simply sitting and doing nothing. [Also Tim, this counts towards your appearance count; the "one of us" is you instead of Ray this time].

    One more thing, why is this game part of the touch generation? The DS is the touch generation, not the Wii, isn’t it?

  13. lwelyk says:

    I’m pretty sure the game can tell by the change in your weight that you’re cheating by sitting down. So I don’t think that actually works.

    I don’t own it so I don’t know, but people have already tried that. But hey, you own the game so I could be wrong.

    To that actual comic, I didn’t think it was the best, but it wasn’t bad.

  14. J man says:

    the whole wiisit brings up a good point
    why the frig didnt mario kart have an add on feature to use the balance board as kart pedals!!!!!

  15. Tim says:

    Tustin, problem solved!

    lwelyk, actually it is quite easy to ‘cheat’ although it seems rather pointless to do so because the game isn’t about winning, it’s about staying in shape, and cheating only hurts yourself.

    WHAAAT?
    Look at that girl! Didn’t you say ONLY MEN CAN HAVE NUBBY ELBOWS? Geez you really are perverted bastards. And he/she even has nubby knees.

    That’s actually Ray. He’s allowed to have nubby elbows. …and knees too, it appears.
    …Freak.

    Two syllables. Creep-y.

    …but clever comic guys. I particularly like that you took the extra effort to add the silhouettes in the background

  18. Napman1 says:

    Well, I’ve been hiding behind shadows for the last two months, reading your comics and listening to the podcasts. And sadly, I really enjoy your podcast’s more then the comics, not saying your comics are bad, but not as funny as the podcasts. I really enjoy all the segments of the podcast, Black Doom Award is very funny, Especially Ray’s doom award in the podcast “Goodbye To Ray” (I don’t remember if that’s the correct title or not) I just couldn’t believe that lady made her four children share one DS. But, yeah, keep up the great work guys, really looking foward to more podcasts, as well as more comics. :D

    P.S. Is there anyway you guys could make the podcasts more Wii-Friendly, because only my brother has a computer (typing from my Wii at the moment) and I usually have to wear headphones, because he doesn’t think you’re funny :(.

    Agreed……… :?

    No. Well maybe if I can has cheeseburger. Sorry for the ICHCB reference, I just love those cats :D .

    Actually, if I’m not mistaken, the knubby elbows (and knees) were to show a character was exceedingly skinny. Ray is this way in the comics – He’s skinny = He has knubby elbows. The girl in WiiFib is skinny (= knubby elbows) which proves the point about WiiFib.

    Edit: Yep, Thanks Tim, it is fixed (and looks cooler than the new comment box at the bottom).

    PS: Are you friending me on Facebook? :0

    I just noticed the logo for this week. Frickin awesome!!!! Man I love green :mrgreen:

  23. Junewe says:

    Haha! Awesome! It reminds me of your Patapon comic, which I love!

    He stated in the podcast that he puts the “nubs” on a character to emphasise maximum scrawniness, its use in this comic is flawless. putting them on a girl to emphasize the fact that she is, in fact, not obese yet the “wiifib” game is saying otherwise. seeing that that “fib” is lie and that she isnt fat makes that portion of the comic humorous. in conclusion the wiifib comes from the recently released game wiifit. wrapping up the joke.

    I am clearly an authority when it comes to the subject of “nubby” elbows.

    Oh, NOW I get it. I had never seen the WiiFit cover before now (this post) so I didn’t realize that Sarah in the last comic is standing exactly like the girl on the front cover of the WiiFit cover (or that the fat guy in this comic is trying to). Clever! (I saw this comic again and wondered what the actual cover looked like. Now I know!)

    I was suggesting he post a picture of the actual cover.

    I think that in the WiiFat panel Ray should’ve had the WiiFat guy be bending the board… thingy… (what’s it called?) under his foot… or breaking it… or something…

    Also, I want a TWEWY comic.
    Or a comic with dragons.
    Or both.
    Or both. Simultaneously.

    I mean, it’s YOUR hard work and everything, I just thought that it would be awesome to see Ray’s drawing of a dragon. And also a TWEWY joke.

  30. Dragonblader1 says:

    Crap, I must be blind. The WiiFat guy is already crushing the Wii board thingy under his foot. I blame Rioluke!

  32. DarkEnigma91 says:

    Rofl :lol:
    The last panel is pure genius :D

  33. Tristan says:

    If there is one thing worse than having Wii Fit telling you that you are overweight, it’s gotta be having Wii Fit telling you that you execeed its maximum weight limit. While your freind is sitting on a couch laughing his head off.

  34. Tristan says:

    That’s actually Ray. He’s allowed to have nubby elbows. …and knees too, it appears.
    …Freak.

    if you are refering to the person in the first panel…. im PRETTY sure that isnt Ray. Seriously. Does Ray have long hair and a headband? No! Does Ray look like a girl? NO! It doesn’t look anything like Ray, therefore, it ISNT RAY!

    Normally I would think that this kind of thing wouldnt need to be pointed out, but im making an execption here.
