Right now, on Bioware‘s front page, they have a poll asking people for their favorite webcomic. There are 11 listed. DM of the Rings is one of them.
I’m getting pasted though. This is not a bad thing. Scoring 1% of the vote on a poll with PvP, Penny Arcade, Dork Tower, and StrongBad is still a great honor. It’s like being the guy with the most strikeouts in the world series. Sure, I did terrible, but hey: World Series!
Even nicer that it came from a cool company like Bioware. (Makers of the excellent KOTOR) This would have been less exciting coming from some console company that I was never attached to, or from someone like EA, who I lothe.
Hey! They left out OotS! No they didn’t. Geeze. I’m goin’ blind here, blind.
This Scene Breaks a Character
Small changes to the animations can have a huge impact on how the audience interprets a scene.
Raytracing is coming. Slowly. Eventually. What is it and what will it mean for game development?
Shamus Plays WOW
Ever wondered what's in all those quest boxes you've never bothered to read? Get ready: They're more insane than you might expect.
Gamers Aren’t Toxic
This is a horrible narrative that undermines the hobby through crass stereotypes. The hobby is vast, gamers come from all walks of life, and you shouldn't judge ANY group by its worst members.
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.

Uh, it’s right between Little Gamers and Penny Arcade.
I bet whoever maintains the website just listed his personal favorites. Which means… you have a reader (or more than one) working at Bioware!
Well I put in a vote for you, and now it’s up to 2%. Please don’t deny me this one arrogant induction.
Congrats, thats pretty nice. Its one of my faves not just for the quality comic, but also the overall good blog. Roll on.
We definitely need to get you above PvP.
You’re currently tied (at 2%) with Dork Tower, which has a surprisingly (to me) vote total… I would have thought it would do better than that.
Congrats, Shamus! Seems like you’ve ‘made it’!
I dunno, I can’t stand Dork Tower. SDB linked it many times, and every time it was some kind of a shallow joke, poorly drawn… I just can’t get into it. DMotR does a degree of cheating with the imagery, but even then it’s very likeable. And I don’t even play D&D. Never played once.
You’re ahead of PvP now, which shows that the world truly does understand quality.
You got my vote! Thanks for the laughs, and please keep ’em comin!
Another vote here – up to 4% now.
You definitely deserve it more than PvP. Ugh.
Man, they don’t even list Achewood? What kind of poll is this?
Anyway, here’s hoping you win.
I feel this is one of the such a lot vital information for me.
