    Woo First! Listening now ^^.

  2. Supersonic24 says:

    Yay! Second! Woo hoo, yay… I’m about to listen now.

  3. D3vin says:

    I liked the Comic, it just needed a little more work, Like Sonic ’06

    You should have made the single panel bigger, requiring the user to physically scroll the page over to the end.

    I liked the Remix, Oil ocean is the only level I can complete in that game without destroying a badnik, too bad there isn’t a ‘pacifist’ bonus.

    That song for the musical misfits originally came from the Sega arcade game ‘Out-Run’ and is used on the Name entry. (do I win something?) 😉

  4. Matteron says:

    whoo 4th :p listening now.

  5. Snifit says:

    Nice podcast guys. And for the record, I liked this comic AND the Mario steroids one too.

  6. Ray says:

    This was one of the first things I mentioned to Tim, but he wasn’t sure if he could implement it without screwing up every comic that came before it.

  7. BrightNeko says:

    I get the feeling that other megaman comic is about Megaman Legends >_>

    also PETA
    People for the Eating of Tasty Animals!

  8. MetaRidleyR27 says:

    Woah! Super short but nice podcast this week! I don’t really have much to say. I thought the comic was decent, but a lot of those ideas you guys mentioned would have made it much better.

    On an unrelated note, I finally got the Homebrew Channel installed! I’ve only messed around with it a tiny bit, but I’m definitely going to look into the Brawl modifications.

    I feel like we get about 3 REALLY good podcasts in a row and then a good one, that is obviously, good, but not as good as the previous ones. Unfortunately I feel like this week it was that comic that was entertaining, but there’s not really anything I’m going to remember about it later. In fact I only jotted down three things this time.

    1. I think part of the problem with the comic was that there just aren’t too many Megaman fans like there are fans of other games.

    2. Now wait…did you guys ever even mention the iPhone game by name?

    3. Uhh….If I was to rate PETA’s actions about the circus game from a scale of 1 to 10 with 10 being absolutely absurd and 1 being the right thing to do…I’d give their actions a 5. That particular circus is in fact very bad in that regard, though I guess boycotting a video game about it is a bit over the top, but I wouldn’t feel comfortable buying the game myself.

    Sorry, I meant podcast, not comic.

    Yeah, the game was Myst.

    And this is the second Comment of The Week I’ve been rewarded. WOOT! Go Punny Puns!

  12. Gadoink says:

    Wow, short podcast this week.

  13. BadnikHunter says:

    w00t! Third comment of the week!

    That aside, pretty short podcast. I would say NPG, but it wasnt so good. Small Black Dooms, and did Tim have a suggestion box? I guess i would say “OPG” (O.K. Podcast Guys)

    You win a Non-existent cake, because it is a lie. Yes, people are still making Portal references.

    So really we should be blaming Tim ja?

  16. CKcheeseboy says:

    Cool, I kind of got a double assist on the CotW.

    Umm…yeah, I guess I don’t have anything else to say. Except…

    That particular circus is in fact very bad in that regard, though I guess boycotting a video game about it is a bit over the top…

    …I don’t think it’s over the top. It’s actually under the top…

    …the BIG top! (ba-dum, psh! or if you prefer, http://instantrimshot.com/)

  17. Narnian says:

    The whole time you were saying “Myst” in the podcast, I thought you were saying “this” which was really frustrating me. Serious facepalm on that one. XD
    Anyway, you guys’ conversation towards the beginning of the podcast got me thinking- I really love this site. Almost everyone on the site is awesome and considerate, the comics/podcasts are funny, and there’s just a sense of community you really don’t get anywhere else. So yeah, sorry for blathering on, but warm fuzzies for everyone.

  18. D3vin says:

    Ja, we should blame Tim.

    THANKS A LOT FOR SCREWING THE COMIC UP TIM!!!!1!11one
    ^o^

    That’s very nice of you, Narnian. Thanks.

    So really we should be blaming Tim ja?

    Ja. He’s the reason why a second version was even made. I always knew I should have never asked Tim, “so what do you think?” …..

  20. Snifit says:

    Ja. He’s the reason why a second version was even made. I always knew I should have never asked Tim, “so what do you think?” …..

    So is it Tim’s fault for making changes or your fault for asking his opinion? This comic is a paradox wrapped in an enigma wrapped in a riddle all rolled into Mega Man’s helmet!

  21. ultimateDK says:

    Yeah that’s a pretty good setup you guys have going for you…even on an off comic, we still want you to do better so you get constructive criticism, not “YoU SUxoRz!! LaWL!” like you see on youtube.

    I love that remix, it’s on my list of favorites on my itouch, so good choice!

    Anyway, here’s my musical misfit for the week:

    Not saying this to sound all spiffy and whatnot, but I completely agree.

    that’s worse than taco town!
    (in case you don’t know taco town, http://www.hulu.com/watch/1447/saturday-night-live-taco-town)

  24. BadnikHunter says:

    Cool, I kind of got a double assist on the CotW.

    More like an alley-oop(Spelling?) I passed it and you dunked it in. Unless you don’t like basketball.

  25. Tacos says:

    At least you’re not taking this one as bad as the “Mario steroids” debacle. And puns have never been my favorite type of humor unless they’re dead on. I guess if this was somehow incorperated into a larger comic as a ‘side joke’ (much like the “Living the Dream” comic had side-jokes) I would’ve enjoyed it more. But it feels like less content for one comic than we normally get. But don’t worry, its been 37 weeks since Mario Steroids so that’s like, 3 ‘bad’ comics a year. That’s pretty darn good if you ask me.

    Why is it wt-40? WD-40 is the lubricant most commonly used for foosball tables. That would be punny (or just appropriate because its Oil Ocean.

    That was quite an impressive “Mwahaha.”

    Really? Myst? Its only been made available for everything since the dawn of man.

    And its only a matter of time before PETA goes after Nintendo for abusing turtles.

    Mmmm, peaceful song here at the end.

  26. BadnikHunter says:

    And its only a matter of time before PETA goes after Nintendo for abusing turtles.

    Or Sonic Team for using animals for… everything.

  27. DrOswald says:

    I liked the remix in this one, and the musical misfits.

    PETA annoys me. I agree that animals should be treated well, but I think their method is crap. Going after this game is going to solve nothing, and just makes them look ridiculous, lowering their overall effectiveness when they try to do something that actually matters. it is very easy to write of anything PETA says because of things like this. Also, I like to eat animals. They are tasty.

  28. FluffyPanda says:

    Ah, so you’re a member of this PETA

  29. roadjcat says:

    Also, I like to eat animals. They are tasty.

    Sorry, but I’m going to have to quote the comedian Jim Gaffigan on this.

    “Fun to pet, better to chew!”

    and one of my favorite lines:

    “I do feel bad they have to be killed though. I’d prefer it was an animal suicide, maybe if the animal deserved it. This is a good chicken sandwich, I think that chicken tried to steal my car! Good work Roger!”

    Yeah. I’m done now. XD

  30. roadjcat says:

    Oh yeah…I said I’d stop saying Rouge in the comic comments, but not the Podcast ones! 😀

  31. Dad says:

    Guys…regarding the comments that readers of your comics express disappointment in some of your comics: how many times have you read a Peanuts or some other very famous comic and thought it was just ok, but you keep reading them because you know that the next ones will be funny? Even the best comic artists don’t hit a home run every time. Your readers should cut you some slack……

  32. ­ says:

    Time to annoy you with an incredibly long comment:
    ?) the single panel comic would have worked well but that version was to much bild-up for such a simple joke
    ?) I have a very high average at my university (first year mind you) and hence clearly have a brain
    ?) I like a lot of your stuff but not all. I will say it sucks if it does
    ?) I like some other web comics more, none hit more then you, but some hit just as much but they win because theres take less time to read during the misses.
    ?) You might pass them with the pod-cast
    ?) I never have been into Megaman
    ?) Have you used that idea yet?
    ?) I don’t expect an answer
    ?) Lace comics are good
    ?) Tim and Ray are often the best though
    ?) your Podcast seam to be less clean then your webcomic sort of
    ?) still the only one I would send to an eight your old
    ?) I didn’t reconze cutman
    ?) I saw one with mega man and cut man playing rock paper scissors, megaman always winnign (being rockman in Japan)
    ?) The line didn’t matter what it was for at all
    ?) You can please all the people some of the time, some all of the time but not all all of the time. You can’t always get it right
    ?) This just isn’t cutting it nice 😛
    ?) Wouldn’t there communicator be built in. Not need to talk on the phone
    ?) Its just to big. Thats the problem
    ?) false
    ?) puns are the lowest form of humour
    ?) didn’t you try and do the worst comic ever before?
    ?) the sonic blunt one?
    ?) I didn’t hate it. Wasn’t funny but its free Internet humour I have no right to complain.
    ??) not great 😛
    ??) shouldn’t he be darker cause he is in the shadow?
    ??) easter eggs taste good (happy easter)
    ??) I don’t feel like reading comment 7
    ??) You didn’t draw it so hence no signature
    ??) Not good enough for you?
    ??) it is you
    ??) I am alive
    ??) You better have me on the next rise from you grave
    ??) Wait now its bad that I am no longer silent
    ??) Whatever happened to having topic of the week every week, its one of the best parts
    ??) Black doom is another of my favourite parts
    ??) What about non-sonic sonic team characters?
    ??) sonic and the black doom was an amazing podcast
    ??) The only one I couldn’t finish was E-for all did suck edition
    ??) Wow, the game? Not the actual abuse and neglect in real life? WHAT
    ??) If the cruelty is virtual isn’t that an improvement?
    ??) I agree, the circus would make it better for the animals
    ??) They just hate video games
    ??) Meat tastes good
    ??) I miss the old ending, to be honest. It should come more often.
    ??) Enjoy the bonus content after the finish thats part of the reason that I like the original ending
    ??) The other time i was out walking a dog (not my dog by the way) and I realized I was singing your ending music to myself
    ??) I am not planning on leaving unnecessarily long comments like this often
    ??) You are horrible at that
    ??) I am going to comment lots
    ??) No don’t try that again
    ??) I can’t drink it meses me up
    ??) I am not Greek, I just have been dealing with a lot of there letters in math and physics and come to be amused by them for lists so that people cant say the item number or letter unless they know what there talking about, then half the time I wont.

  33. ­ says:

    darn it. My greek letters show up as ? in the comment. Fix that
