Don’t forget to make your super-monsters immune to your super-weapons, or you’re just shooting yourself in the foot.
Thanks to readers who are better at the internet than I am, we have the rest of the comic, the original commentary, the comic titles, and the original ending.
Thanks to Eric and Damien for the help.
This is one of the few CB strips that really falls flat for me. Partly because I thought the “Players Kill Plot Important Bad Guy Instantly” was done better both times it came up in DMotR, and partly because it’s a joke that didn’t really need to be repeated a 3rd time, and partly because Casey really should have learned by now, and given the giant skeleton guy a suit of armor of Immunity to Spears or something.
Also, I’ve never be able to see General Femur’s face as intended. He’s supposed to have empty eye sockets, but the bone ridge make me think he’s just closing his eyes and grinning, anime-style.
How I Plan To Rule This Dumb Industry
Here is how I'd conquer the game-publishing business. (Hint: NOT by copying EA, 2K, Activision, Take-Two, or Ubisoft.)

If Star Wars Was Made in 2006?
Imagine if the original Star Wars hadn't appeared in the 1970's, but instead was pitched to studios in 2006. How would that turn out?
Black Desert Online
This Korean title would be the greatest MMO ever made if not for the horrendous monetization system. And the embarrassing translation. And the terrible progression. And the developer's general apathy towards its western audience.
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.
