940 Never Surrender.


My stupid internet is so slow. It’s taking forever to load the page. I hope Arc Valley expands this way soon so I can ditch this shitty service. That would show them.

No store around here has Pokemon Conquest. It’s not that big a deal. I can get it other ways, but it strikes me as… unfortunate, I guess. I haven’t played it yet, but I suspect it will be good. I also suspect that Nintendo isn’t going to support it very well. Much like Glory Of Heracles. I haven’t finished GOH, but it was an interesting enough game. Nintendo doesn’t seem to have mastered the RPG exactly yet. They usually need some help. Capcom, or Square usually has to come along for the ride. If it’s sort of an actiony RPG they do okay, but I can’t think of a totally standard RPG they’ve done. Not one that was released in America at any rate. For all I know they are huge in Japan.

I keep almost convincing myself to get Kid Icarus for the 3DS, then I remember how tedious it can be and how they didn’t really try very hard with this version. Would a graphics update really tax you that much, Nintendo? I can’t imagine that it would. Not since you’re selling the same titles from 30 years ago for 5-7 bucks a shot forever. Plus all we wanted was a cool update and we got this weird shooter thing that you need an arm brace to play… POUT FOREVER.

Anyway I may yet convince myself to get it because I still have my password book from when I was little. I can go right to the end if I get sick of the eggplant wizards.

The value of content without physical form is still in a state of flux. I hope it drops slightly so I can have more. I’ve always been a “lower the price, but sell more units” kind of guy. That’s why I make almost no proffit on my merch. I’d rather have more out in the world and make money over time rather than a handfull of big sales once or twice. Each to his own, I guess.

I’m thinking of offering the comic as a digital download so you guys don’t have to deal with the archive every time you want to reread the story. Does that interest any of you vocal readers?
