(Yes he knows this is late. Now STFU! )
Yeah, yeah I’m late sorry. I had some resource difficulties. Anyway, I let Dalorei write this weeks script! I hope you enjoy the comic and once again, sorry for the be-lated Sunday comic.

Our favourite wannabe ripoff reviewer takes a look at a mediocre Genesis title based off a movie.
(Whoo! Disc Two!)
The action begins with the beginning of Disc Two in the aftermath of Aerith’s sudden permadeath at the hands-I mean, sword-of Sephiroth. Not being one to be hung up over it (*cough*Lies!*cough*) GmerChris and the remaining gang decide to go off and find Sephiroth once again.
Following the previous events we find ourselves outside one of the huts on the outskirts of the city. As we continue on we see a ghost version of Sephiroth heading north-east. Obviously we chase after him.
A couple screens on we find ourselves having to climb up giant splits in a wall, because obviously Sephiroth has pulled a Dick Dastardly and destroyed the path to the easy access to a ladder so we just climb up the cracks all the while with the ladder mocking us.

Yesterday Max Payne hit theatres. Being the nerd that I am (I write for this blog, need I say more?) I went to the local cinema to catch a showing of this movie. I looked forward to seeing this movie. The trailer looked promising and the fact that Marky Mark errr I mean Mark Walhburg was starring as Max Payne was great. Also with Mila Kunis, Ludacris, and Nelly Furtado involved, this movie had some solid potential.The plot of Max Payne is as follows: Max’s family is murdered by a bunch of junkies on Valkyr (a new designer drug). Having nothing to loose, Max goes undercover the source and flow of Valkyr. However Max is framed for the murder of his partner. He sets on a quest to clear himself. The movie follows this plot (more or less), however it is just okay. Continue reading

Nintendo fanboy that I am, I actually grew up playing on the Sega Mega Drive (Or Sega Genesis for those of you who have a console named after some rock band or the first book of the Bible…) Ever since I can remember the Mega Drive has been in my house (My dad used me as an excuse to get a games console it seems…Before I could actually play the dang thing)
In the beginning we only had one game which had it’s home permanently inside the console- Sonic The Hedgehog. For a long time I sat there and watched my dad play through the game non-stop (Something he would later do with Super Mario Bros which he once took a day off work just to complete) Until one day I decided it was my turn.
On Christmas Day, 1996, while my family were in the kitchen I flipped the on switch of my Sega Mega Drive and started playing through Green Hill Zone. The game was amazing. The speed, the colours, the characters, it was just a whole new world. Then he came.
Dr. Robotnik (Fuck Eggman, it’s Robotnik) arrived with is pain in the ass pendulum ball and I repeated the patterns I learnt from watching my dad, bouncing Sonic off the top of him and moving from one side of the screen to another until he was finally defeated. I was overjoyed and instantly rushed to my dad to rave about my triumph. The gamer in GamerChris was born.
(This is where it all began.)
As the years past I expanded my Mega Drive collection from this local run electronics store which sold games on the side as they mainly dealt with televisions. Whenever my dad would drive me there to buy a new game I would press my face up against the glass where the cartridges were sold, either choosing games based on their funny sounding names (DeCapAttack) or my familiarity with certain fictional characters (Quackshot Starring Donald Duck) Then I saw the cart. I had found Sonic The Hedgehog 2. Continue reading
