The second installment of Chainmail Bikini is up. There were a few hiccups where the prev / next buttons didn’t work, and the RSS feed was deviously hidden, but it should be all fixed now. We’ll be posting comics Monday and Friday. We really wanted MWF, but alas art is somewhat harder to come by when you don’t have New Line Cinema and Peter Jackson working for you.
Also, Shawn comments on the launch and the future plans for the strip. He also addresses the main criticism about the strip, which is that it’s been done. This is true, although it hasn’t been done by us. The internet is a big place. I’m sure we’ll manage to squeeze in someplace.
And finally, I guess I should point out that there is indeed a gamer chick in the strip. I’d intended this to be a surprise, but some people reacted with such indignation to the all-male cast that I thought I should let everyone know before the rioting starts.
Juvenile and Proud
Yes, this game is loud, crude, childish, and stupid. But it it knows what it wants to be and nails it. And that's admirable.
Trusting the System
How do you know the rules of the game are what the game claims? More importantly, how do the DEVELOPERS know?
Spec Ops: The Line
A videogame that judges its audience, criticizes its genre, and hates its premise. How did this thing get made?
Punishing The Internet for Sharing
Why make millions on your video game when you could be making HUNDREDS on frivolous copyright claims?
The Terrible New Thing
Fidget spinners are ruining education! We need to... oh, never mind the fad is over. This is not the first time we've had a dumb moral panic.
