That is great. I didn't think I had room in my heart/RSS reader for another video game webcomic, but I was wrong.

Listen. I like to do manly things. But, I like (baby) to do them with you.

This reminds me a lot of Fanboys -- the art style, the exagerrated expressions, the video game focus, and especially the bearded bad-ass/wimpy sidekick/levelheaded token female dynamic. If you like this, you'll probably like that.

The title should explain itself.

Yeah, the title perhaps explains itself, but leaves out a lot about the comic, like the fact that it's basically a series of in-jokes about video game characters.

Most of which apparently I get. The one about the big daddy especially had me chuckling.

Link busting up Ganon's flower pots because he thought they might have rupees made me laugh.

and the fact that it's a webcomic.

In the caption for this one she says, Last two weeks of my Ugly Americans contract coming up, it’s the big push to the finish. So a perfessional, evidently.

Review at Webcomic Overlook.

OK, who else read the blond guy's dialog in Brock Samson's voice?

I really enjoyed the Pyramid Head one.

Yeah, panel 5 of that one owns. [guttural snarl] ayyyyyyyyyyyy [/guttural snarl]

Trying to figure out what Pyramid Head's doing with his hands in panel 7 though.

Actually, I think this is pretty damn funny.

Okay, I don't know what the Commander is smoking, that was totally Sense and Sensibility.

And this is the first time in quite awhile I've taken such a shine to a comic, but there weren't nearly enough archives there for a proper late-night binge! Now I'm just going to have to actually keep up...

This is amazing. I may be the only person I know who will fully appreciate the Kratos / Carrie one. Thanks for posting!

I'm disappointed and glad that the archives don't stretch back that much. I would have wasted a lot more time otherwise. Well, not "wasted".
This is now in my feed reader. Thanks!

What's a "yanno?" Is it something Japanese?

I came in here to ask when the lawsuit starts because seriously.

I came for manly men, but all I found was nerdy men writing nerdy comics. ;)

...and I didn't get the jokes.

I added it to my RSS reader. Sorta hoping they have gay porn week where the Manly Men do Manly Things to each other with their Manly Manness.

Puts me in the mood for a Mantage.

Nerdy woman, actually. She's pretty fantastic.

Fun fact: This started out as an entry to the Escapist's webcomic contest but lost to, uh, this. I'm not exactly sure why.
