    Not soo much a comic, but indeed pretty funny. It is a gamers To-Do list pretty much.

  2. RedVinnie says:

    I have risen from the commenting dead. I was gonna wait till comic 100, but this was just too good to pass up. NCG!
    Also, i was just wondering, since i just recently got a gba micro (I have wisdom teeth surgery in a few days…)what gba games you might recommend. i already have sonic advance 2, mario and luigi superstar saga, and pokemon sapphire.
    You guys are the greatest!

  3. Supersonic24 says:

    Lol at “do a barrel roll”!

    Yeah…this.

    I like “do it for the horde”. 😀

  5. Anon says:

    Ray, your slipping…
    how could you forget

    “give them a chance to be happy”

  6. Anon says:

    Oh, and

    “find the computer room/ 4th chaos emerald”

  7. moonjuice7 says:

    seriously, how could you neglect us fans of RPGs? “Save the world(s) from evil villain(s)”

  8. Tacos says:

    Brilliant!!! Happy new year

  9. MetaRidleyR27 says:

    Haha! Excellent! Nice comic guys, and Happy New Year! 😀

  10. steve-ohs says:

    awesome!!! Liked the the get jiggy with it.
    Not too sure about the last one..that can wait.

  11. BulimicKoala says:

    Being an attention-whore I will now say anything to get me in the suggestion box.

    This comic used to be good.
    There goes comment of the week.
    Hi I’m new and you guys rock so much. You rock my socks off.
    I love both of you in a very wrong way.
    I eat cake.
    I need to throw up now.

    Now that I made that list I just realized that I have a very big lack of creativity. Man now I am muy triste.

  12. billtodamax says:

    I didn’t get all of them, but NCG.

  13. Kire says:

    well done Tim and Ray. NCG. This comic is so simble and yet it’s still funny. Although its just a peice of paper the art still seem to be there. Well done Ray.

    I would also be interested to find out what Tim’s original idea’s where and how they changed. Hoping you guys say next Podcast.

    Edit: Any chance of maybe seeing this as a background?

  14. hyper says:

    Happy New Year People

  15. Haniko says:

    NCG

    But after relistening to the newest podcast I decided to put mah own two cents into the achievements thing.

    0g Pull A Tim – Forget your Black Doom Award for the podcast and let it slip earlier on. Coincidentally, saying the D-Bag word on air will also award you this achievement.

    But as for the comic, you forgot.
    “See their moves.” (Obviously from “SHOW ME YA MOVES”)

  16. Brawler08 says:

    Wow, I knew what each one was refering to 🙁

  17. roadjcat says:

    For some reason, I think there’s a Metroid “resolution” but I can’t think of it…perhaps, “Defeat the Mother Brain”? I don’t know, but this comic needs more Metroid. 😀 Or maaaayyybe, there’s no comics about Metroid because Metroid cannot be made fun of. It has no faults….Yeah. Now that I think about it, that’s the reason. It must be. 😀

  18. MetaRidleyR27 says:

    *cough*Screw Attack*cough*

  19. RedVinnie says:

    i completely agree w/ haniko. you need to “see their moves!”

  20. roadjcat says:

    i already have sonic advance 2, mario and luigi superstar saga, and pokemon sapphire.
    You guys are the greatest!

    Metroid Zero Mission. A great intro to the Metroid series, and a great game period.

    Oh and in reference to the comic, what exactly are the “massive damage” and “star power” from? I’m feel I should know the star one…but I don’t. Guess it’s been a while since the last episode of Incredibly Obvious Things That I Miss…

    *cough*Screw Attack*cough*

    Guest comic. How many times do I have to say that? XD

  21. RedVinnie says:

    the star power is from guitar hero.

  22. roadjcat says:

    the star power is from guitar hero.

    Ew. XD Okay, good, my memory isn’t failing.

  23. billtodamax says:

    Guest comic. How many times do I have to say that? XD

    but written by tim still. the guest was doing the art, not the writing

    Not sure how well this would work as a wallpaper though, not every one panel comment should be turned into a wallpaper

  24. D3vin says:

    Loved it, Even though you forgot a few: 😉
    – Check videogaming webcomic website for what was supposed to be a funny comic
    – Say that comic used to be good
    – Post sarcastic or suck-up comment
    – wait for that site’s podcast
    – geek out on how you made comment of the week.

    Too bad the only thing I have to complete gaming-wise is get all Gold on all the Sonic Riders missions, even though it ain’t worth it. (unlocking Super Sonic isn’t really much of an incentive)

    Happy New Year’s everyone!

  25. RedVinnie says:

    HAPPY NEW YEAR! my resolutions are already complete. i have beat every sonic game that i own 100%! it took me 13 years but its done!

  26. roadjcat says:

    but written by tim still. the guest was doing the art, not the writing

    How did I miss that after all this time? My apologies.

  27. CKcheeseboy says:

    Haha! Love it! I got most of them, but I don’t know what the horde one is from. I’m guessing the cake one is supposed to be Portal?

    I agree, though, one should have been “Show Captain Falcon your moves.” Here’s some I came up with (admittedly, some aren’t that good, but whatever):

    “Remember to keep breathing while you exercise.” (probably a little more obscure than the rest, but I do like that line…like I was going to forget…)
    “Step it up (because you’re too slow)”
    “Get N” (as opposed to getting out)
    “Get into it”
    “Pay off debts to Tom Nook”
    “Use the Konami Code”
    “Find Totaka’s song in (game)”
    “Buy good 3rd party Wii games (de Blob, Boom Blox, Zack & Wiki, etc.) instead of shovelware (Carnival Games, etc.)”
    “Not buy the new Madden unless it’s improved as significantly as any other sequel I would want”
    “Lern hw 2 sp33k r33l Englsh nsted of jst 1337sp33k”
    “Get your parents to help you hook it up”
    “Get your hands on that game (the one with awesome graphics)”
    “OBJECT!”
    “Break Tetris addiction”

    …Yeah, I’m done now.

  28. CKcheeseboy says:

    Sorry, I thought of these after the edit period:

    “Hack the game and create a Mohawk class” (I love that commercial!)
    “Reach the kill screen in Pac-Man (or any other game with one)”

  29. roadjcat says:

    Remember to keep breathing while you exercise.
    Pay off debts to Tom Nook
    OBJECT!

    Those were pretty good. 😀

    And the horde one is from Warcraft II, either that or I’m severely losing it.

  30. FluffyPanda says:

    I like how they’re listed in order of importance 😉

  31. Rokai says:

    How could you forget:

    Between 3 and 6, I’m sure one of them is a reference to Resident Evil 4 and the merchant. And isn’t 8 just a simple reference to whenever you saved during a game?

    Also, one of them should be “Listen!” (think annoying voice)

  37. nintendogamer101 says:

    If you look closely at the list, you’ll see this note at the bottom:

    P.S. – If you understood all of these resolutions, I now pronounce you a nerd. You may kiss the bride. (Wedding music plays)

  38. nintendogamer101 says:

    Oh, here’s another one, but it’s kind of, as you might say, sooooooo old news!

    Red Ring of Death before my warranty runs out.

    By the way, number 3 is from the original Legend of Zelda for the NES.

    Sorry about the triple posts.

  40. nintendogamer101 says:

    Also, when I read “decline offers for cake”, it reminded me of Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door. Remember when Mario is fighting in that fighting ring in the sky under the name Gonzales (is that right?) and he receives two pieces of cake from some fans and the first one replenishes his health or something and the second one is poisoned? I remember you had to decline eating the second piece of cake or Mario wouldn’t be able to fight in the next round.

    Fourth post!

    I’m sorry, I just keep thinking of things to say!

    Some of the best (bad) dialogue ever!

    Castlevania: Symphony of the Night:

  43. impmon09 says:

    hilarious. I cant name what all of them are from, but I can tell at least half of them. my favorite one was “do what nintendon’t.” Genesis was always my favorite.

  44. Kyzin says:

    Really, neglecting sonic? I’m surprised!
    “Be the Fake Hedgehog.”
    “Have a need for Speed!”
    “Run into walls to slow down!”
    GCG.

    1, 3, 9, and 10 are all from the original Zelda (1 was also in the actual comic…). 2 is Portal, 5 is Metal Gear (I was thinking of using that one). 11 is from SMB3. 4 might be as well, but the line is “Pick a box. It’s contents will help you on your way.” if my memory is correct, so you could be going for something else. 8 sounds familiar, but I don’t know the rest.

  47. roadjcat says:

    If anyone gets this…then…wow. I actually love this, it’s a recurring “theme” I suppose, in one of the games I’ve been playing:

    *Bound someone a smidgeon on the tight side.

  48. Ray says:

    Also, when I read “decline offers for cake”, it reminded me of Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door.

    Oh man, I totally forgot about that. No wonder I love that game so much.

  49. Wrenchmonkey says:

    Ah. Simple yet hilarious. NCG.

    You love that game so much? It’s probably nothing compared to me. XD Just ask anyone whose on the forums a lot. That’s my second favorite game of all time (the first being the original Paper Mario), but I have to be honest, I didn’t even think of that….but wasn’t there a reason why it would’ve been stupid to take the poisoned cake anyway? Weren’t you at like full health when they brought it to you? I was like, “Well, I’ll save it for after this battle” or something like that so, I of course didn’t eat it. Through 6 playthroughs, I always wondered what happened if you actually ate it…well now I know. 😀 Oh, and yes, his name was Gonzales.

    2. Portal
    5. Original Metal Gear
    12. Bioshock
    15. Kid Icarus

    Correct except the Bioshock one. It’s actually from Planescape: Torment.

    Unless you also have “What Can Change the Nature of a Man?” as a recurring theme in Bioshock. I’m not very far in it yet.

  54. RedVinnie says:

    i think the cake one has more to do with portal because that cake reference is more recent. plus ray just admitted that he forgot what the cake one had to do with….

  55. Kyzin says:

    OH! One more sonic one;
    Throw a party, cause you know what they say, the more the merrier! (X infinity)

  57. BulimicKoala says:

    Also the last thing on the list is a problem I too have. My resolution is to liek mudkipz moar.

    Hey. Someone who’s actually played the game. XD Yeah, I love that quote. Though I should’ve said “bind” not “bound” but whatever.

    I honestly didn’t think that anyone but me really plays Pokemon Ranger. 😀

  59. RedVinnie says:

    i do believe that the tell a secret to everyone is a reference to the comic called muttering moblins.

  60. roadjcat says:

    I honestly didn’t think that anyone but me really plays Pokemon Ranger.

    After playing Shadows of Almia, which I LOVED, I went and got the original Ranger. Which I then proceeded to HATE. I just simply stopped playing it. All the gameplay mechanics are different! =(

  63. Gadoink says:

    Remember to keep breathing while you exercise.
    Pay off debts to Tom Nook
    OBJECT!

    Those were pretty good.
    And the horde one is from Warcraft II, either that or I’m severely losing it.

    Naw, “For the Horde” is just a plain Warcraft thing, it’s not a certain game as far as I know. It’s also in Warcraft III (never played 1 and 2) and it’s also in WoW. I just love playing as an Alliance character and just yelling out ‘FOR THE HORDE!!!!!!’. Quite funny results most of the time! XD

    EDIT: Oops, sorry for the double-post.

    It’s a lot harder huh? XD But the Poke Assists are so much more useful.

    “move out of parents house”

    This strip is genius! I know people (myself included) who might have these on their lists. keep it up! my gamer resolution is to find actual evidence that sonic does not suck. i like attempting the impossible.

  66. Ali says:

    The logo is THE SAME. You have betrayed us 2P Start. For 15 years I came to your site, I even still remember the time it used to be good. Yes the Golden age of 2P Start when Logo’s were different and I loved both of you in a very wrong way. I still remember doing things to your avatars… bad things…very baaaaad things. And yet now 2p start is stuck with a list and the same exact logo. But do my eyes deceive me, I do believe I see a, a smudge on the bottom of the logo *scrolls up and wipes screen* NO NO NOOOOOOO! I will start my own gaming Webcomic and it will be fresh and new every week. I will call it 1p go. it will be c33l 1337 ulTim33t3. Here = link to comic

    The truth exposed.

    Oh and seriously if this does become comment of the week I have one request, please mention my blog here = (it would be much appreciated if you did one way or another)
