Stolen Pixels #111: The Lesser of Two Evils

This is an Overlord comic, but it’s not really about Overlord. It’s about a game which is not Overlord. If you want this to make sense, then you’ll just have to read it for yourself.

    Maybe next time, the Overlord could sue a game that tries to have in-game incentive why to go Bad or Good, which enforces a peticular and oppressive kind of morality?

    I don’t know… like Fable?

  2. JKjoker says:

    Are you sure blocking anything with Jack Black on it would be considered “evil” and not an act of “protection of humanity” ?

  3. Volatar says:

    Wow, what a hilarious coincidence.

    I just now, 5 minutes ago, beat Overlord 1. And now you post a comic from Overlord (II, but close enough :P)

    Also, LOL :D

  4. Groboclown says:

    Very sharp one here. And ‘grats on the 111 comic, as I’m one of those who celebrates repeated numbers.

  5. Yar Kramer says:

    I found the word “Underlawyers” to be the funniest bit, for some reason.

  6. Rosseloh says:

    I didn’t even know there were lawsuits going on. How, exactly, do Activision think they can stop someone from selling the rights to a product they completely dropped? Also, what’s the point to the suits?

    Well, as long as I get BL in the end, I’ll be happy.

  7. Jennifer says:

    Shamus, the wording in your comment makes it sound like Double Fine dropped Brutal Legend, not Activision–you overused pronouns and I wasn’t sure what that “it” referred to. Normally a pronoun refers to the most recent proper noun, which is Double Fine, not Activision.

  8. Sam says:

    I wish more villains yelled “Curses!”

  9. Joe says:

    Like Snidely Whiplash?

    “Summon the underlawyers from their lair and break the seal on the litigation gate! I will see this deed done.”

    I love it.
