Why does Captain Comic exist? Why did I make a comic about Captain Comic? Why does my shirt change colour between panels? These questions may never be truly answered.

I’m sorry please forgive me.
Anyway! I really loved Gyruss. It was a cool arcade game, with that big dome monitor thingy? And I really enjoyed playing it on the humble Commodore 64 of course. I think there was a cartridge version early on in the C64’s life that I borrowed somehow and wow, was it nice to play cartridge games on a machine that had gotten me used to waiting 20-40 minutes for a game to load.
I’m just saying that running River City isn’t as easy at first sounded.
I mean moving on from how odd it was that destroying candles on the wall can sometimes leave behind hearts – was Dracula just storing left over hearts on various wall fixtures? – I don’t get how any self-respecting member of the Belmont clan could eat one of those things in good conscience.
Oh, video games, you are so stupid sometimes.
Anyway! I played the crap out of this on the Game Boy, that was a fun time!
I honestly couldn’t think of a game as generic and bland as Karnov, but some of you people requested it, and I think you’re all loony for it!
How good would a convention be where you could get autographs of your favourite gaming icons though. I’d pay good money to get Wizball’s autograph, which would be something special, particularly since balls don’t have hands.
I think a modern-day Roadblasters would be a lot of fun! Even something like a game that overlays on top of your car’s windscreen to make it look like you can shoot everyone in traffic. That could be pretty interesting, just pressing buttons that send out virtual missiles to the car in front of you and displaying giant fireballs when they “hit”.
Someone get me the boss of videogames on the phone, this idea is gold.
Anyway! I was never a huge fan of Roadblasters in the day, the racing wasn’t as good as other games of the day like OutRun and the shooting wasn’t as much fun as Chase HQ: Special Criminal Investigations. I mean it was OK don’t get me wrong but when you’ve only got two dollars to spend in the arcade it’s a bit of a tough proposition.
Now that Russia is pulling out of the International Space Station, maybe Sweden could pitch in and help?
Dear God I hope nobody has done this joke before but it’s the internet so it’s probably already been done forty eight billion times and everyone is going to sue me for all my internet money so please just let me know where I should send you my three dollars thanks.
I think it’s time that we, as a gaming community, finally get together and come to terms with one of the industry’s deepest shames: Klax wasn’t as good a game as we say it was.
I know reading that hurts. You’re probably angry at me right now. “NO!” you might be screaming, “KLAX WAS A ’90s PUZZLE GAME MASTERPIECE!” and to be honest I understand. We’ve all been there. We’ve all fired up Klax at one point or another, determined to have fun at this overly complex puzzle game. Some of us found the courage to admit that it wasn’t as addictive as everyone else was saying it was, is all. Some of us owned Lynxes and couldn’t play Tetris. I get it.
But now the ’90s are over, and there is no longer time for Klax, and we can move on with our lives with new hope.
I liked Pool of Radiance a lot, but I have to give my preference to Bard’s Tale in the long run. The game’s plot never really made me understand what the problem was – the city the characters started in seemed like it was doing just fine, so why not just, y’know, chill out at home or whatever?
