You know what's fun about TG? Just when you think he's dead and gone, never to return, he tiptoes back in, hopefully making the wait worth it. Hopefully.

Yes, I do realize that this is Halo, which is a Microsoft thing. But when I started this comic, I had the intention of making a comic set in the Nintendo world, but spanning all of video games in general. Plus, now you get to see Goombas in Master Cheif armor. :P

Now this did take a long, long, long time. Probably a total time of 18 hours or so. Maybe even more. Obviously, I didn't do this all in one sitting. I at least try to have a life, and something like that might hurt my aspirations toward one. But the important thing: it was done with Photoshop CS3! :O

That's right, I finally upgraded that ancient PS7 into a beautiful Creative Suite, third in the line of heirs to the Photoshop throne. Yeah, I'm cheesy. But I do like CS3 a lot. It's highly customizable, and it takes a lot less memory to run than PS7 (which definitely a good thing, when you consider the measly 500 megs of RAM I have on my lappy. It does take some getting used to, even from PS7, but it's worth it. All that is, of course, if you can afford it.

In other news, I u pdated the site layout a bit today. Read about it if you like.

So anyways, hope you enjoy this strip. Questions, comments, favs, ratings, complaints, and ninjas with electric blades are all appreciated.

Dragonman: I did. Break out the amazing face.

Kefka: Haha. Yes, that makes me very happy. I can now die a happy dude. :D

Finally! *does the dance of happiness*
Let us celebrate this comic with the adding of chocolate to milk.

Also this strip makes me want to play Rainbow Six Vegas for some reason, not Halo 3 (which bores me too quickly. You can only spray run and melee everyone in the enemy team dead so many times before it gets boring).

heh heh funny, nice new banner

comic king: Haha. Well, maybe not epic. But who am I to argue with a fan? :P

TDJ: Dancing and adding chocolate milk are two actions that do not go well together. I've heard the outcome is neither good for the chocolate milk nor the counter it is spilling on. As for Halo 3 vs [other FPS], I'm not really going to get into the politics of that. ;)

duck: Thanks to both. :)

E-Man: I'm not a rabid "ZOMG TEH HALOZ IS WIN" Halo fan, but I will say this: Halo 3 is a very solid game. And, in my opinion, the Halo series is actually pretty tame, especially compared to other M-rated games. I still do love Mario games, though.

Halo Goombas, n00bs, Homestar-styled holding of things with no hands, and the energy sword, all on High Ground? EPIC WINZORZ, LULZ.
