Nice and witty. :)

#2 Sorceror Thu, 28 May 2009 05:24:34
I like it, but not sure what's going on in the last frame.

#3 Medandrea Thu, 28 May 2009 06:01:37
He's hesitant to genocide anything, because he knows what it'll do to the ecology.

This was very well set up.

#4 DrSunglass Thu, 28 May 2009 06:43:31
Very nice. Especially liked "collectible".

#5 Anonymous Thu, 28 May 2009 08:39:34
Much funnier than the last one.

Hawkes (who has never done archaeology or ecology, and doesn't mind blowing shit away in computer games)

But this is...Dudley, who's the "person" inside the @ symbol.

Not the player. Well, we're not really sure, to be honest.

Also,...ancient food ration???...I might want to avoid eating that, for reasons other than historical significance...

Quint: Maybe that was the upside.

I remember this game (I think it was Pogo's Tripeaks) where you could open an ancient chest and find "a delicious cupcake! (and it's still fresh!)" That one always made me feel a little guilty.

anther: ever play Earthbound? It has "presents" instead of chests and in one part of the game, you can find five or six presents in one room that each have a cookie inside. If you talk to the kid in that room, he'll tell you that he stayed up personally decorating each cookie for an upcoming party... wait, you took them all? How could you?!

I don't remember that scene, but it sounds like something Earthbound would do.

Who spoilt the perfect E vote?

Even better than the last one!

...and that economy class was an even more bigger mistake.
