Anti-ValentiNES

TimHappy (almost) Valentine’s Day everyone! We had yet to do a true Valentine’s Day comic, so I’m glad we actually remembered this year! Valentine’s Day is actually the 2-year anniversary of 2P START!, so there will be a special little bonus comic to mark the occasion on Saturday. Also, if you like one of these V-Day cards and would like to send one to a friend, you can do that from this blog post. I guess these aren’t exactly the most loving cards you could send, but they should make people laugh, and if you can’t make someone laugh, they’ll never love you. Therefore, these ARE the most loving cards you could send!

  4. RedVinnie says:

    bahahahah! that made my day! good job guys ecg!

  5. Wow, hilarious timing. I just created my own pre-Valentine’s Day message with the following:

    Great comic though. I might use the Toad and Kirby ones =]

  6. steve-ohs says:

    These are some of the best gaming valentine cards I ever saw, these are awesome.
    I love the little dead heartbroken fairy included in the Zelda one.

    and a extra comic this week?!?! How can this week be any better?
    (probably if I had a girl to send these valentine cards to)

  7. Supersonic24 says:

    Hm, not as good as the usual comics, but still funny. I especially liked Toad’s card.

  8. If your logic is correct, Tim, then I’m going to give the Kirby one to that girl in my class that I have a crush on!

  9. MetaRidleyR27 says:

    Haha! Excellent comic guys! The logo is really awesome too! 😀

  10. roadjcat says:

    I like the dog from Duck Hunt….

  11. Kyzin says:

    Wow. Truly excellent. I ight be forced to send a dew of those. 😀

  12. Gadoink says:

    I really like 1, 4, and 6.
    They are awesome!

  13. Brawler08 says:

    This comic is amazing! I’m sending these to all my single friends!

  14. igorponweed says:

    Wallpaper please! My favorite is the Mega Man one.

  15. Betta splenden says:

    I love them all. Why didn’t you make a link for real Valentines like that that we can give out? As cool as the 8-bit ones are, you could have done some cool stuff with other games. Like Animal Crossing! “Sorry I missed Valentine’s Day, I needed to play Animal Crossing.” Or “Look, Rock Band has realeased Love Songs for Valentine’s Day. Let’s play that instead of going out.”

  16. Betta splenden says:

    Just finished posting, and saw the NES part of Valentines. That’s so funny. NCG!

  17. ultimateDK says:

    If Kid Icarus would actually shoot the dog like it looks like he’s about to do in the comic, he totally deserves a power-up. Like turning into Man Icarus 😉

  18. -thumbs up-

    I would like to second Noodle’s opinion. Downloads?

  19. FluffyPanda says:

    What have you done? Hundreds of 2pstart fans will be sending these out to people who have no idea what they mean.

    “Why is cupid complaining about being called cupid?”

    “Why is that dog laughing at my aim?”

    “Sorry but your valentine is in another card? Yes it is, and that one was sent by a guy who’s not completely obsessed by videogames”

    I’m afraid there will be many lonely 2pstarters this valentines… but maybe that’s your evil plan? Make sure they have nothing better to do than devotedly follow your comic?

    Cunning.

  20. cramill says:

    Hahahaha! This is awesome! A print and cut out version of these will be great! If only I knew more girls who would understand the game references…

  21. Ray says:

    “Why is cupid complaining about being called cupid?”

    You realize he’d shoot you for saying that, right?

  22. Tacos says:

    I already plan on using either Toad or Link!!! NCG (nice cards guys)

  23. tustin says:

    I love how the last two cards interact with each other, while still being sully understandable by themselves!

    “Good thing Cupid’s Aim is better than yours!”
    From the next card over: “If you call me Cupid again, I’m gonna shoot you!”

    Great Comic!

  24. tustin says:

    PS. What ever happened to the editing feature, Tim? It just vanished one day…..

  25. Moonjuice7 says:

    Great cards guys. This has to be one of my favorite comics. (and i’m not one of those deluded followers you mentioned in the podcast.)

  26. ultimateDK says:

    that was quick! gonintendo has link to 2pstart for the valentines cards! thats awesome.

  27. CKcheeseboy says:

    Nice! I like the Duck Hunt dog and Zelda ones especially. The Toad one is good too. Can’t wait to see the bonus comic!

    I like the title, too. The logo is OK, but you should’ve done something like “2P HEART!”

  28. I know what I’m giving out this year!!!

  29. Anon says:

    I made a gaming valentine of my own this year.

    It’s an upside down crab with an arrow in it.
    Inside it says “You’ve hit my weak point for massive damage”


    your cards are funnier

  30. Dominator_101 says:

    Nice comic! I really liked the Duck Hunt one, but the rest were good too. Kirby looks really ticked off in the second one…

  31. Crab says:

    Hey Guys!
    I’m a long time reader of your comics and a long time listener of your podcasts, but i’m just now choosing to ‘rise from my grave’.
    All your comics have been awesome, and its pretty cool to have these cards for valentines day, i’ll be printing my girlfriend out the toad one, as im pretty sure its the only one she’ll recognize the character on.

    Keep at it guys!

  32. ubuntun3rd says:

    These remind me of Woot’s bitter valentines! Also, look at their sweet ones.

    I emailed Tim about it. He said they were running into some issues and it is turned off until further notice.

  35. MasterXell says:

    I love it. These are absolutely classic. I hate Valentines day, and to me. These cards are the best there is. Both of you did such a great job on this one. Keep up the great work.

    The only bit of a bug I got is that I wish there may have been a few more, but otherwise they are pure gold.

  36. BulimicKoala says:

    In my opinion this was pretty lame. I get the jokes but they are just not funny. Hope you guys do better next week. Also my cult is coming along nicely.

    You’d have to be living under a rock to not get these.

    I belive I asked that question a few comic ago. It’s just not working.

    I belive I asked that question a few comic ago. It’s just not working.

    It was removed as a remedy to the 500 internal server error (one of which I got this morning at 6am) and I guess for the most part it worked, so it’s been permanently removed.

  40. roadjcat says:

    Oh, wait. I take that back. I misread the comment. I thought you were saying that too many of the 2P START! readers were too young to get them. My bad.

  41. Moonjuice7 says:

    Ha! i just noticed the title. This comic just got even better.

  42. jbruner says:

    Hi Ray and Tim! I guess I’m “rising from the grave”… First time poster, but I’ve been reading 2P Start since the Koopa/ Goomba pokemon comics. I just got into the podcasts about two weeks ago and I’ve listened to them twice through at work. I’ve even convinced my brothers (staunch Sonic fans, I might add; they thought even Shadow was a “pretty okay game”) about the wonderfulness that is 2P Start comics, the hilarious, well-written and edited podcasts (Black Doom awards are now the highlight of my week :D), and even the informative and entertaining extras. Keep up the great work guys!

  43. Anon says:

    Ooh Ooh, more valentine’s day card ideas!

    Kirby- He spits and swallows ^_^

    Zero Wing- All my love are belong to you

    Final Fantasy (7)- Is that your buster sword, or are you just happy to see me?

    And now some anti- ones

    Sonic- Looks like we have a new “fastest thing alive”

    Did I mention I started reading at about then, too?

    Believe it or not, a good portion of the world has never played the NES. I know for a fact that the last 3 girls I dated would not have understood any of these jokes. 2 of them had never played a video game ever. But with the right girl these would certainly be a hit (just make sure you got some flowers to back it up.)

  46. TomX says:

    Hey guys, again, fantastic idea for the comic. But an unrelated comment with an idea about your archives…

    I love the face that you guys redesign the 2P Start! Button logo for each comic but hate the fact they don’t get much recognition. I realized that the thumbnails you have next to each comic, could also look really cool as each of the comics logo redesigns. Just a thought…

    That Zero Wing one is excellent!! Lol. The others a bit… suggestive for 2P Start! 😛

  48. Anon says:

    this is great.

  49. Anon says:

    I finally found you, FAKER!

  50. Gadoink says:

    (points up)
    WTF?

  51. roadjcat says:

    So, the special comic…I assume it’s going to be posted here right? Today? Thanks. 😀

    So where is it? It’s Sunday now, and I still don’t see it…

    Oh, I thought it would be up with the main comics…
    I don’t actually read the blog, so I didn’t see it.

    That’s really funny though XD
    Tim: “I’m already married. To a girl.”

  55. FireSpark says:

    Greetings guys. This is my first time chiming in, and allow me to say that in the few short months since I found your comics, I have been thoroughly entertained. Awesome stuff.

    With this comic, I’d have to say that the dead fairy on Link’s card makes it the perfect one for me. As if to say, “I shall find love, even if it kills everything I touch.”

    Anyways, one last bit, and kind of a flash back. I’ve bene tracking my way through your podcasts (also great stuff), and just today I heard something rather eerie. In episode 38:Mega Edition, Tim’s trivia question dealt with the leader figures form the civilization series. Then there were jokes made about updating the game, and replace Lincoln with Obama, who had not yet become president.

    Apparently, Tim has the gift of an oracle. Now if he’d only ramble of thesome lotto numbers.

    I agree. Tim, lottery time, yea?

    Dude sweet comic, I gave one of these to my girlfriend she laughed her ass off ^=^

  58. roadjcat says:

    I just realized that you got rid of toad’s finger…”Incredibly Obvious Things That I Miss!” XD

  59. BadnikHunter says:

    I love the

    “Sorry, but your valentine is in another card!” And the “If you call me cupid again i’m going to shoot you.”

    I would really give these if i knew people with this kind of humor.

  60. chriskatching says:

    HAHAHA!!! Loved these!!

    If you want I can make you physical ones, Ray 😛
