“…it’s not to scale“
Hahaha! Not to scale.
Blast, my link didn’t work.
In theory it does, but not in practice.
I was expecting this to be a scale/fat/snorlax joke and I can’t tell if I’m disappointed or relieved.
I found exactly one Snorlax in range, and it was at work >=|
ok mofos it’s recreated for you
Let’s just hope it isn’t on his face…
Or his junk. That would probably hurt!
In response to the text that only appears with a cursor:
“No. It was a fad.”
…my wife and I play daily still.
The gyms are pretty competitive round these parts.
I still love playing!
By the time I’m able to play, the servers will be down.
That is, they won’t be coming back up.
I wanna be mediocre, like many people are
I wouldn’t really call it a quest
Cause that sounds way too hard
Gotta catch a few, gotta catch a few
Here is one too.
A fair amount of people still play-I say this as seeing many of my own friends and coworkers doing so.
I feel like someone like Amber would still play this even if most dropped. It wouldn’t stop her from playing other games.
Eh, if everyone else stops, more gyms and pokemon for her, right?
except that people can collect the same spawn (and a friend complained that a Tangela was avoiding his Pokéballs b/c he knew from the fact I caught it (and we’re the same level) that it wasn’t even a good one)
More spawn for her then. 😛
anyway the fact that Ingress is still fairly active suggests it’ll stick around awhile, particularly if they get the other ~80% of the game done Niantic claims to have planned
I walk for at least an hour every day playing it. The fad part may be over but people are definitely still playing.
the question is who’s still playing Neko Atsume! (me)
Oh, oh, also me! Just got two new kitties. Working on all the rare cats mementors.
Me. Freaking new cat manages to avoid me. 15 visits, still no picture XD
Ugh! Had that for a long time with Chairman Meow.
Campus across the street has two stops, and one of them has a lure going at lunch time at least a couple times a week. So, college kids are playing, in Austin. I still play, and see people walking/playing in the evenings. Once school started, it slowed down, sure, but not gone.
When I take my son to cub scouts most of the moms play it while waiting for the meeting to be over.
But that’s probably a huge signifier of how uncool it is now.
My campus has over two dozen stops. It’s a little daunting, especially since I have to keep the screen lit and unlocked for my steps to register for hatching eggs. That’s what drove me away from the game, and they’ve since added enough updates that it won’t fit on my phone anymore.
haha EIGHTEEN around the Rio lake
(I can only reach six, yay iPad w/ no data plan connectivity)
everyone around me still plays it too. not with quite the same fervor, but its still certainly popular indeed
Most people around me dropped playing, except for my 9 year old sister. It doesn’t help that it’s cold out now.
Most of my friends still play! I only don’t because my phone is a jerkface– but oh… When I get a new phone, pokemon is go
My sentiment relates to me seeing several articles talking about how extreme the drop off is.
Ethan, they’re not “guys”, they’re Pokemans. Get it right.
“Which Mario is that?”
Zelda is my favorite hero! He’s great!
Metroid is my favourite Nintendo character. He’s just the coolest.
Nah, Skippy is the coolest. He’s always got a mission for you.
Too far, man. Too far.
Well, I like to think I’m the best at what I do.
Is there a Legend of Zelda game were you get to play as Zelda to save Link instead of vice versa?
There’s a Legend of Zelda CDI game where you can play as Zelda to fight Ganon. It’s called the Wand of Gamalon, and even though it may be the best CDI Zelda game, it’s still an absolutely terrible game that I cannot recommend.
I recall either Aonuma or Miyamoto saying that they were surprised to find out that western fans wanted a playable Zelda so much, but after looking it up I only found more recent comments from Aonuma where he says, “If we had Princess Zelda as the main character, then what is Link doing?”
I mean, that may have only applied to Breath of the Wild, but it does sound discouraging that Nintendo doesn’t want to solve a plot hole THAT easy to fix, right?
They’ve used that and other half-assed excuses for not trying before, many times. If they literally just swapped which character gets kidnapped by Gannon, not only is that ”problem” solved, it would turn the whole story on its head, and make Gannon seem like less of a dumbass for trying exactly the same plan every time.
But this is the company that thought the Dead or Alive guys were a good fit to develop a Metroid game, and were somehow surprised when people thought Other M was hot garbage.
Hey be fair to Team Ninja.
Nintendo made Federation Force. They’re perfectly capable of fucking Metroid on their own.
Poke-dudes. (No accent, pronounced ‘pohk-doods’)
But I hardly know them.
only Nidoran♂ is definitely a guy! (and arguably Nidorino and Nidoking but w/e)
Incorrect! Even limited to only Generation 1 Pokémon we still have Hitmonlee and Hitmonchan as definite guys!
And now, with my useless Pokémon trivia dispensed, I shall depart!
how do they reproduce |=o (tbf I have not encountered either yet)
Latios says hi c:
As does Tauros, Volbeat,Sawk and Throh, Rufflet and Braviary, the Kami Trio, and Gallade.
And blue meowstic.
Hold still. There’s a Ranger Guy on you.
Probably worth considering that he and Amber have spent a lot of time on Transformers. He’s probably got certain habits with his vocabulary.
(And with this post, I will know the site’s time so I know how long until today’s comic goes up…. it’s a quarter past nine, when it usually goes up for me.)
12:13? Concerning. Something must be wrong with the site.
I guess I’ll go to bed then.
I played for about a week, but I’ve never been a huge Pokemon guy. Most of my friends made it a month.
I also stopped playing after a week, because I had enough of catching Pidgeys, Ratatas and Weedles.
drop by the Washingtonian Rio in Gaithersburg MD and also get Magikarps out the ass (and some Psyducks)
That sounds painful.
Amber’s photographer face is my jam. I’m all about that cute smile.
Me too. I’m glad she’s out with her best friend being a nerd with a big ol’ smile on her face
She doesn’t have to worry about anything except catching Pokémans for a while.
Getting over her hatred of her unrequited archnemesis helps, too.
Of course, now she’s laser focused everything broken about her from Sal to herself.
XD shhhhhh the Shortpacked!-esque hijinks, I’ve MISSED them.
NOT ENOUGH BATMAN
It DOES need Batman, but eh, what doesn’t?
The CW DC TV Universe? Or live action television in general, really.
I like Batman, not saying I wouldn’t watch a show that works, but every time Bruce himself gets onto the small screen, we seem to get let down sooner or later. (Excluding most of his animated adventures, of course.)
Now that is very classic Ethan. I’m getting Shortpacked! flashbacks.
You think the guy talking in memes has twin boys?
Ethan is at his best when he’s the whinging alpha nerd he wanted to spend his life as.
Shortpacked!Ethan is one of my favourite queer men characters of all time and anything that makes this Ethan closer to that is good in my book.
Doesn’t Pokemon Go date the comic?
(I guess, to be fair, Amber does a lot of comic dating video game related stuff. Technically any technology does?)
That’s an odd ship there. Might work for catching Magikarp, though.
Word of willis has previously stated the comic exists in comic book time meaning that pop culture references are made which are convenient for when it is published. However, this does not affect the in-world time
Yeah, but with the floating timeline you just kinda have to ignore stuff like that. I mean, check out the phones Joyce and Becky were using just a few weeks ago.
Becky was using Not A Cellphone but a cordless landline phone by parental edict, as mentioned repeatedly in the narrative? Those still look like that.
Whoops. I fail at continuity.
Narrative? I thought people were here while waiting on new Slipshines…
Like, I read the comic for the narrative, but I’m lucky if I can correctly recall what happens a week ago our time. Like I think Amazi-Girl and her arch-nemesis Sal teamed up to fight someone, that couldn’t have happened.
I feel so old when people keep looking at that and not even recognizing that cordless phones were a thing.
They’ve basically been anachronized into those gigantic walky-talky cell phones from the early nineties
Maybe half the people I knew owned cell phones when I started college! I’m not that old! Shut up!
It was a Swedish company that made cellphones back in the early days. They bet on the wrong horse when they tried to make the move to smartphones about five years ago (they went with the Windows OS), and since then about all you can say for them is that at least they’re still around. Which is more than you can say for Research in Motion, makers of the Blackberry line of phones.
Correction — Finnish company, not Swedish.
When they went to use Windows, they’d already lost out on their first try of platform: Symbian. I liked its possibilities but they didn’t manage a so big app market and where technologically far from modern smartphone i.e. Basically still phone with added features not a mini-computer which you could also use to call people.
Saaaaaame. Cordless phones aren’t that old, folks! Most places will still come with a landline! (Around here anyways, usually corded at one spot and then the rest are cordless).
Cordless phones are great if you live in more than a one room house and don’t want to carry your cellphone to every room whether you have a landline or not. I leave my cell charging next to the cordless base station which acts as a bluetooth headset for the cell phone and now voila my cell phone rings in every room that I have a cordless handset in. They even talk and tell me I have a text message. (Granted it’s stupid cause instead of reading off the text message which does happen in my car the cordless handsets just say literally “TEXT MESSAGE” a few times).
I use a landline with an el cheapo cordless phone I got at Mall*Wart , and the handset bears a striking similarity to the old Nokia 5200 series.
Much earlier than this was a strip on the Chic-fil-A news story that they donated millions to anti-gay agenda groups.
November 24, 2011
I think the story doesn’t really call for that much outside politics and news stories, but he uses it every now and then for a throwaway gag, or to start a more character driven storyline that could have been started by something similar.
Pretty sure AR Pokemon of some sort will be around for decades anyway. Might not be GO specifically, but its sure to have successors. Its pretty much the ideal IP for AR tech, and the techs only going to get better.
Heh. I’m in an independent theater group. Our show opens Friday and one bit has the same problem: the decline in Pokémon Go relevance.
Was this written in the two days before everyone turned off the AR for how finicky it was?
I’m surprised anyone lasted two hours, but I still turned it on occasionally for photo ops or to abuse angles for easier long-distance throws.
Little did DYW-July know that by October Pokemon-GO would have cause the deaths of millions.
Yeah, but will it work just as well in two years when the book is being reprinted?
It’ll tie in with the new release, Pokemon Goldbug.
Of course she caught them all. She needs them to kill the spiders.
Hyper Beam works surprisingly well with those. And whatever surface they’re on.
Most of the spiders are poison type. You’re gonna wanna use Psychic on them. Although Psyshock is my new favorite psy-type attacks nowadays.
(BTW, I’d thought of playing one version or another of “Muskrat Love”–I have both the America and the Captain and Tennile versions in my music collection–but I will forgo the exercize as a service to YOU.)
Personally, of the two I liked the C&T version better.
Personally, of the two I hate the America version less.
I’m a rabid America fan but I skip “Muskrat Love” every time it comes on. Love the SOUND of it – the guitar is really soothing – but hate the lyrics. I saw C&T in concert, and I’m sure they also played it, but I’m only familiar with the America version.
Refuses playing “Ziggy Stardust” on the SRB Muzac, too tired to hack it, today.
your good still works
I want a dumbing of age version of Pokemon Go where the characters say nice things about you, and you are given the ability to punch characters you do not like.
Release Date: In Your Dreams?
Pretty sure it’s still relevant, said the guy who is constantly behind on pop culture.
(The guy is me.)
Ehhhh, I think this still works – even if it’s no longer the craze it is now, it’ll still be a game that exists – no reason Amber can’t be a fan of older Pokemon games if she likes the whole series (or, if it dies and fans make a more limited version, that works too. Fan-games are popular-ish in Pokemon fandom, so why not?)
I really like Amber’s outfit today. Apropos of nothing
Has Pokemon Go really been out for 4 months already? (That’s what I assume the buffer is right now…)
Amber didn’t have to use the f*** word. At least she seems happy.
She’s with her best friend. It’s good that she can harmlessly act like a prick with him.
I think I’ve called my best friend an asshole more than I’ve actually said his name.
Is his last name Dumas?
Why the fuck wouldn’t she?
Right? I mean, it’s a Snorlax!
Of course she did. She’s gotta catch them all!
Or Sarah, at least.
Fuck, you have added hovertext?!?
All the fucks in the comic, you have added as hovertext!?!
Yeah, I did that a while back because I decided that going through again and putting everything in hovertext was easier than going, “Oh, shit, I don’t remember that one. Did I count it?” every time I read through chunks of the archives. Also I made it PHP so the server does the math for me.
I love how well Sal’s count is visualized with 79% of the hovertext being from one instance. Well done!
Is Pokemon Go still a thing? I don’t pay attention to things so Iunno.
Kinda, yeah. It’s lost a lot of its initial userbase (myself included) but there’s still loyal players.
Snorlax huh? Well damn there goes my chance of making a joke about a Pidgey taking a shit on someones head.
The place where I work is apparently infested with Eevees.
Since it’s the 20th anniversary of pokemon, I’ve been replaying my old games lately. I finished Yellow and just started Crystal.
So is where I work. I have so many Vaporeons I have no space for them all. I use the CP36 one in gyms. 🙂
This was a couple years ago. Since then I’ve added a 3DS XL and just last week a New! 3DS.
Did this comic accidentally become Shortpacked!?
If that means more Malaya I’m all for it
^ What they said.
…Kinda feelin’ like a traitor to my grav now.
But Marcie likes her, and Sal is trying to be more supportive.
I’m still convinced Sal just wants Marcie to bang Malaya and then completely drop her.
The plot twist is when Marcie gives up on Malaya and sets her sights on Guns.
We can dream, I guess.
I’m sure she wants that, but I think her support is genuine.
If Malaya makes Marcie happy, I think Sal will grit her teeth and find some way to deal. She’s awesome like that.
Sal was just trying to convince Marcie that Malaya was probably not interested in her and her giant boobs. Whether she can work up the nerve for grudging tolerance/not trying to beat up Malaya, she doesn’t think there’s anything happening in there.
That, and if Marcie is off with Malaya/Guns/Sayid (it’s my crack ship shut up), then that means there’s a chance for Amber and Sal to start hanging out.
I could see it just as easily coming from concern about Marcie getting hurt if she sets her hopes too high and Malaya never reciprocates
This is actually the strip before the one where that happens but still
It could be a bit of both, though. I’d bet on genuine concern with a side of quietly hoping she’s right
As do I! Sorry, Sal, you’re still my favourite.
“If that means more Malaya I’m all for it”
I admire your strange heart, Fart Captor, for it loving first and foremost characters whom I find right great pricks an’ all.
Bless you, my friend^-^
Malaya and (to a much lesser extent) Carla are the only characters I like that are actual jerks, unless you count ones like Mary who I enjoy as a villain rather than as a person.
If appreciating people I might not get along with, who don’t think or behave or see the world just like I do makes me strange, then in my opinion the world could stand to get a lot stranger.
Malaya’s great because she’s an unapologetic jerkwad. She does not give a fuck about you and your stupid opinions and she won’t cushion it under any kind of label. She’s an asshole and she owns it.
^ This is exactly why I love Malaya.
(Full disclosure: I may or may not have squealed REALLY REALLY embarrassingly hard when I first read DoA and got to their first appearance. I’d just finished rereading Shortpacked! and I’d MISSED them. It’s weird to think there was a time where I adored Malaya and Carla but just kinda liked the folks who weren’t in Shortpacked! almost a year later. Funny how catching up and a 6-7 rereads change things.)
Exactly. She’s God’s Perfect Asshole, too surly for this world
None of that was meant in the objective o.o
If anything it’s strange to me, and most likely no one else. Furthermore, I do LIKE them them, too, as all people in the world. What I found strange that expressing your love for the people I’d have gotten along with the LEAST in the comic(Becky, Malaya, Sarah) in a few quick days’ succession of each other.
At present, your worldview and appreciation of people I would not get along with well fascinates me more than anything!^^
I remain utterly baffled as to how anyone would have trouble getting along with Becky.
Even if something she was doing got on your nerves, all you have to do is ask her to stop. Unless being rad is somehow irritating. I’m not sure she would know how to stop doing that
C’mon Amber, he is looking handsome today, take a pic for his grindr profile!
“But I don’t have a Grindr profile.”
No more Malaya. More Sarah and Becky and Jacob and Sal and Walky. And frequent Ruth and Billy updates.
You misspelled Dina.
Um, actually, you misspelled *my favourite character(s)* as *your favourite character(s)*.
Please correct this injustice.
Or maybe I had it wrong.
“Um, actually, I don not find that character endearing, and found your joke speaking in reference to your love of said character annoying at minimum, but definitely antagonizing and offensive to me.”
Was that the injustice? I have difficulty telling at times. I would appreciate being told, so as to avoid making the mistake again. Social faux pas are hard for me to pick up on otherwise, sorry for the inconvenience.
Always more Malaya. Also, while we’re jokingly asking authors to cater to our specific whims: more meta please?
She was already a Pokemon fan so she probably would still be playing.
This was going to happen eventually.
my friends and i still play regularly, although we hit a rough patch when the area we were frequenting got hit by a superflood and was closed off for two months.
plus she’s Amber. of course she’s that dedicated.
I live in a rural area and I’m still playing Pokemon Go, admittedly it’s been hard, but now that the buddy Pokemon part is there, I’ve been playing even when I don’t have Pokeballs.
It probably would’ve had more staying power with casual fans if it had been released after it was a pretty solid game.
“admittedly it’s been hard”
“but now that the buddy Pokemon part is there”
“I’ve been playing even when I don’t have Pokeballs”
“would’ve had more staying power”
What was the name of the game you’re playing?
“That’s what she said”?
Mmmm… sliding time scale.
I burn my midnight oil yelling at Green Party members regarding Jill Stein’s crazy ideas about science, and getting called a Clinton shill because of it. Like the two things are even RELATED.
Googling leads to inconclusive results. The Huffington post has an article that claims she was totally anti-science, other site sounds just like she thinks research done only by interested parties (interested in selling their stuff that is) is not unbiased and therefore not enough to base reliable conclusion on.
Different industries claiming their stuff is safe is not really convincing given their track-record. On the other hand, a dialogue about risks, risk assessment and which risks a society is willing to take for what hoped-for gain is sadly missing on all sides. Life’s not safe.
So what was your yelling about?
I am still playing and considering the sparks that fly all over the close gyms and the far… so does many people XD Being team instinct is hard though… there are so few of us D:
Also… is 1:15 in the morning on a tuesday and people are still fighting gyms… XD
I almost wish I’d chosen a team based on something other than my own ideals, my favorite legendary bird, and how badass lightning type Pokémon are.
I wish I’d been able to choose a team… I would have been Mystic all the way. Love Articuno, blue is my favorite color (or at least up there… purple and turquoise kind of jumble up my definition of “favorite”), and I have always prided myself on my intellect (it’s one of my very few assets) so I think that’s definitely the way I’d go.
Nope, instead my phone is somehow incompatible with Pokemon Go.
Windows phone? or just and “old” phone?
Fairly new Android, actually. None of my techy friends know why it won’t work.
well that sounds like really something O.o
I know, I kind feel it will be worthy when so few of us will have a Zapdos at the end but it sure is a challenge to get your daily coin as most of the time you have to take that gym on your own.
Pd. Also, Amber just randomly found a snorlax… she is lucky XD
So, Willis can predict the future now! What will I eat for breakfast? Am I going to be late for work again?
Tacos, yes, because tacos take time, and before you say it: I know you didn’t ask me.
Would it be crass of me to state it was what she was going to have, and not you, Sarge?
Nope, because it was a sarcastic joke prediction and I forgot to eat breakfast, so wrong there too.
Thank you. Also, it’d be nice to have a reply to the previous possible social faux pas above as well.
Soggies WILL rule!
You could call me relatively square I guess, but I’m watching managers and directors 10 to 20 years older than me all flock to the break room (where they otherwise never go I assume because they can afford to pay someone else to go there for them) because there’s a shiny whatever tf in there. It’s freaking hilarious. We even have a #Slack channel dedicated to pokemon locations in our corporate headquarters.
It’s just nice to see Amber having a happy moment as Amber.
Yeah it was a gamble, Willis 😛
Let me show you my pokemans.
Man, that Tabby is really into that game.
Could someone translate “quel choc” for me please? Incredibly, Google failed me on this.
“What chocolate!”? I dunno.
and “quel choc” is French for “what a shock” — which Amber is using in a sarcastic manner.
Thank you! I just read five dozen comments about pokemon in order to figure this out!
Is that triangular thing in your avatar supposed to be the huge CITGO sign/landmark outside of Fenway Park in Boston?
Well her livejournal says she went to school in Cambridge, so it’s possible.
So Amber and Ethan have made up? I can’t keep track of who Amber is alienating herself from nowadays.
Like two years ago, yeah.
Amber’s not speaking to Danny now because she’s convinced he’s better off without her.
And she kinda sorta not really reconciled with Sal, or at least stopped viewing her as an evil, life destroying monster.
Amazi-girl did, anyway. It’s entirely possible that if Amber and sal cross paths, Amber will panic as usual and amazi-girl will take over. After all, amazi-girl is much better at dealing with sal, she just doesn’t try to use her fists immediately now.
I feel like Amber is now labeling herself as the root of all her problems. Amber/AG doesn’t view Sal as a swirling vortex of evil now, so Amber has to blame herself for everything. Amber is the monster to be caged by Amazi-Girl or else she’ll hurt Sal, and Amber is so shitty that Danny is better off without her.
(forgot to add this part)
She’s done this with Ethan too, actually. Once he stepped in on her raging at Joyce, she “realized” that it wasn’t that Joyce was manipulating Ethan into straightness (even though she totally was) or that Ethan was just making a stupid, terrible choice she disapproved of, the real problem is that Amber is so shitty and vile that Ethan just wouldn’t fake it with her.
Ehhhhhh, I wouldn’t give AG TOO much credit. She IS the one who decided to stalk Sal and try picking fights with her and her friends.
Indeed. Lailah made the really great point that for all of Amber’s narrative that she’s the real monster and AG has to protect Sal from her, Amber’s the one who runs away whenever she sees her and cries when she yells at Danny, whereas Amazi-Girl has stalked Sal numerous times and verbally abused Danny.
Amber/AG are running on a narrative where everything about Amber is wrong, while everything Amazi-Girl does is moral and just, to the point where AG was the one who unilaterally decided that Danny betrayed her and Amber was better off without him, but Amber’s opinion is that Danny is better off without her.
Yeeeep. That’s going to be a fun ride.
I won’t lie, the stalking and fight picking and feeding in to racist power structures (even if she herself is not racist) is why I’m not so hot about Amber and Sal becoming friends. A truce is one thing, but friendship is…. ehhhhh. Let’s just say it’d be hard to pull off.
I’m thinking it’s really likely at this point.
– Danny and Ethan hooking up means Amber loses focus with her two main relationships in the comic.
– One of the things going on with Sal right now is that she has nobody she can connect with except for Marcie.
– They came to a semi-understanding when they teamed up to get Ryan.
– Given Sal’s involvement in Amber’s trauma, and why she was motivated to perform the robbery, I don’t think it’s outlandish that Sal would forgive her.
– A lot of Amber’s character arc is similar to the one Sal went through in It’s Walky!.
Plus this way they could totally be friends at roller derby, and that would be the best.
There’s definitely a lot leading up to it, so I’m prepared for it to happen. It might not be my favourite part of either character’s storyline (unless it’s knocked out of the park) but I’m ready for it.
okay i see you point but
Is not a thing Sal wants to join. 😛 (Which is really too bad, because those designs Willis made of roller derby Sal are ADORABLE).
If Amber hadn’t been incredibly creepy the night before, I’d have been down with a friendship but now I’ve kinda moved away. Three strikes, it’s out, y’know?
If anyone can make it good, it’ll be Willis though.
So Amber and Amazi-Girl use the same phone… What are the odds Sal sees Amber with it and puts two and two together?
I figure what might tip her off is that these two short, brunette girls with similar builds keep having really weird responses to being near her for some reason.
Eh, never been a big Pokémon guy, so I never got Pokémon Go. That said, since my few friends know that I go for two one-point-five mile walks everyday, they will sometimes ask me to take their phone with me because they have an egg they really wanna hatch but are gonna be stuck in a meeting all day. It’s kinda weird having more than one phone on your person.
I actually know a bunch of people who have multiple phones because one or more was issued by their job. From what I’ve heard, you get used to it after a while.
“Will brake for Snorlax”
When it comes to Sorlax, I don’t think not braking is an option.
Damn it all. Snorlax.
Oh, Ethan, always so lovely.
And photogenic. You can’t teach that.
i still play Pokemon Go and last weekend took a picture of my sister’s dog head to head with an Eevee. she’s a pomeranian, so they looked nearly identical. adorable.
Wow, this puts into perspective just how long Pokemon Go has been out. I remember when all of my friends were freaking out about how it was almost here…
At the title text: Well, we still remember Pokemon Go, so it worked on that level.
Heck, we still remember Nixon, Kent State, and the Vietnam war, but I doubt that Willis is going to slide any references to those into the strip anytime soon.
What do you mean “we”, white man?
I’m older than Willis, and I don’t remember anything before Carter.
I remember all those, and the Moon landing.
[Shakes cane at all you damn kids!]
You should drink to forget. Or just drink.
*hands Slarti a beer, which is dirt cheap and legally purchaseable at age 16 over here. Also, it’s better beer.*
I think it’s getting safe to say that anything that isn’t American by this point is better. I wouldn’t be surprised if we’re not even the best at bad things anymore, like diabetes and obesity.
But is it American?
Drink Budwiser, or be an enemy of the state.
I’ll take my chances by not drinking the piss water
I think it’s weird that everyone in the comments thinks Pokemon Go is a thing of the past. Like I play it every day and the gyms in my neighborhood are always hotly contested. They change teams constantly all day and night long. There’s a lot of people playing this game hahaha
The ultra-slow time rate in DoA causes an inverse frame-dragging chronometric backlash. Most of us long time commenters are actually posting from the late 21st century or even further*.
We try, but it’s hard to keep track of what fads were back before the coming of The Perfect Order.
We’d never be able to do it at all if Willis didn’t have those pirated mind-crystals of a bunch of senior Time Cops.
* Plasma Mongoose said something once about the horrible bandwidth problems with ISPs on Pangaea Ultima.
I’m just here for the fish.
And spiders. Lotta movies and theme parks about those.
Also, again, Pokemon Go will probably still exist in some form, even if it’s just resurrected by fans or it’s a Pokemon AR game by a different title. Amber is a geek – would it really shock anyone she found an old AR game/plays the newest one or played fan Pokemon AR games?
It’s never referenced by name, so I don’t see the problem.
bring out Ingress just to mess with people
Weeks ago I remember Willis talking about avoiding referencing the Election to maintain DoA’s floating timeline. But then he makes this joke and WELP! looks like it’s 2016 now and has been for the past few years.
Exactly, it’s now been 2016 from the time the strip started and it’ll be 2016 until January in real time at which point it’ll have been 2017 since the strip started. Comic book time.
These are topical references.
By odd coincidence, I was down in the park earlier, waiting for people to show up for SCA fighter practice, when I was accosted by a couple of middle-aged ladies in an SUV who apparently thought the shield leaning against my car was some kind of Pokeman gang sign and wanted to fight me for the gym or something.
Having looked up what the team badges look like, I… don’t really see it. My shield has blue on it, I guess? And a bird? But the bird’s not the blue part. Also there’s a wolf and a star.
People are weird.
It… does? I mean, it’s not as all-encompassing, but I still know people who are big into it, and I’m planning to get back to it. I’ve just… not been in a great mental/emotional place and not up for leaving the house much.
