and thus the Game Boy line dies.
with his cousin though, thats just wrong…
so I’m under the assumption that this is a reference to the fact that the GameBoy Micro was released after the DS
Aye, the Micro always was the bastard child with no real future. It’s funny, Nintendo always claimed that the DS would be a “third pillar” along with the GameBoy and Wii. But then they went and let the GameBoy die whilst feeding the slots of the DS.
@Matsuo: my sentiments exactly.
@doomed1: my sentiments exactly.
P.S. That Wii controller has to stop being a slut.
Matsuo: That was their backup plan in case the DS failed. Ever since the Virtual Boy, Nintendo always has a backup plan on the hardware front. Guess why the N64 controller had three prongs, two of which were directional control devices? Because one was the joystick, a new, never before used means of thumb control.
This has to be my favorite comic so far.
I always took the ‘third pillar’ statement as something they said just in case the DS experiment went horribly tits-up, in which case they could laugh it off as a virtual boy style experiment and go back to the GBA series.
talking of which I’ve never seen a VB vidcon…
Remind me who the Queen is again?
Actually, that was a marketing ploy just incase the DS failed
The queen is a DS.
The Queen it’s a DS
Yep, I’m aware it was the usual marketing guff. I was saddened to see it prove to only be that, though.
I’m guessing the VB is in the role of “aberration consigned to the dungeon, never to be acknowledged but eventually to be claimed as true heir by a scheming uncle” or “abomination, hated, but accepted as family responsibility, kept in secret but decently furnished chambers in a hidden attic, secretly fed peasants on a regular basis”.
For more on option 2, see “The Invisibles”.
This has to be one of my favorite ones. Great job
Nay, The VB is among the servants of Lord Phantom! Long has he refined and practiced his mighty migraine technique!
I love how the pregnant princess has the MotionPlus attachment. Who knew the Wiimote’s womb was in the chin?
I wonder if he’ll make a comic about the new NPD numbers regarding Wii 3rd party game sales being higher than everyone else’s
So if the father GBA is related to the queen, mother to the Wiimote…
Isn’t there incest somewhere in here?
@ Dan: Not unlike most feudal monarchies.
Wiimote needs to get some of those wii-condoms, since they’re free and all.
