Yes, Stolen Pixels returns! I’ve decided to kick things off with a news story from… last week!
I know some people were looking forward to the rest of my comics on New Vegas, so let me say a bit more about that…
I only had one more joke written, and I’d planned to write more as the series ran. Of course, that was months ago. I haven’t touched New Vegas since then, which means I no longer have funny things to say about it. If you’re that curious, here is the other joke I had written:
Same style as the first one, narrated by the player in yellow text boxes.
Panel 1: Shot of Veronica:
Narrator: I ran into Felicia Day.
Veronica: (Says some Felicia Day quote from some other place – Dr. Horrible, The Guild, whatever.)
Narrator: She said she was good at disarming people in hand-to-hand, so I brought her along.
Panel 2: Shot of Veronica punching some dude’s arm off.
Panel 3: Narrator walking away from the camera, as in the first strip. There’s a grave in the foreground.
Narrator: I buried her in the desert.
Narrator: I hate puns.
Eh. I came back to the joke later and decided I didn’t like it.
A screencap comic that poked fun at videogames and the industry. The comic has ended, but there's plenty of archives for you to binge on.

Even allegedly smart people can make life-changing blunders that seem very, very obvious in retrospect.

It seems like a simple question, but it turns out everyone has a different idea of right and wrong in the digital world.
