Late Post ;A;


Bit of a late post. For those who were waiting... Thanks for waiting! >_<

How strong are you Iris? You tore that controller in half with your bare hands!?


vggal October 12th, 2011, 4:55 pm

@Pyauki: Sheer frustration + 10 bonus modifier = Plastic Tearing Feat granted

Having said... I don't wanna do that again. They cost a ton! ;_;


PaperDrawnDrew October 12th, 2011, 4:55 pm

Lololol! Frustrating games are frustrating.


vggal October 12th, 2011, 5:05 pm

@PaperDrawnDrew: I know! >_< But why can't I let it goooooo~!!! D:


yupanger October 12th, 2011, 5:31 pm

The game is a challenge to the mind ... by not finishing it, it creates a mindset of defeat, which no one wants ... therefore; IRIS MUST PLAY DARK SOULS FOREVARRRR



ausbloke (Guest) October 12th, 2011, 6:24 pm

i'm sorry atlas, but wasting my time does not constitute a 'hard' game it just constitutes a waster of time.


TehTy October 12th, 2011, 7:38 pm

My friends jack has told me about the frustration of this game and I'm getting it soon(er or later). I'm just glad my friends aren't the only ones raging.

I don't know... hollowed Iris is pretty cute, especially when she's breaking the fourth wall like that. Just saying...

"10 years ago we had Johnny Cash, Bob Hope and Steve Jobs. Now we have no Cash, no Hope and no Jobs.
Please don't let Kevin Bacon die."

Rats drop humanity... sometimes... if you get lucky... really really lucky


Fr0thgar October 13th, 2011, 12:59 am

lol the more of these Dark Souls comics you make Iris the more i wanna play it xD


vggal October 13th, 2011, 1:06 am

@yupanger: NUUUUUUUuuuuu ;A;
Well... Maybe for a while, but I have to watch myself. This game is DEADLY! D:

@ausbloke: One must make good use of their time >_<
I should start checking the clock every time I die. It'll be frequent! ;P

@TehTy: It's table flipping goodness! xD

@darkMentality: That's sweet of you to say ;_;
I personally think I look horrendous when I'm hollow like that! >_<

And I don't want Bacon to die! Let Bacon live!!!

@struminator77: Of all the...!!! O_o
I would've never suspected... :O

@Fr0thgar: ;P Well, It IS a good game for those who are into that kind of masochistic gameplay... >_<

I guess I'm masochistic. ;_;


Fr0thgar October 13th, 2011, 1:08 am

guess i am too then >_<;; must get a hold of it when i find a job


vggal October 13th, 2011, 1:09 am

@Fr0thgar: xD It'll be quite the experience. Having said, if you played Demons' Souls before, you'll know what to expect. :3


Fr0thgar October 13th, 2011, 1:10 am

well i havent played Demons' souls >_> ive only heard that it is hard as nails.


TrentTheFox October 13th, 2011, 2:37 am

Wow, so the game is "that" frustrating O.O
I want this game! I must feel everyone's frustration! D:<


darkMentality October 13th, 2011, 11:20 am

Yeah, the orange skin is a little disturbing, but every single expression on her face makes it seem just so cute... so, good work if that's what you were (or weren't) going for!


JackOat October 13th, 2011, 11:28 am

Good lord this game seem infinitely more brutal then Ninja gaiden D:.


vggal October 13th, 2011, 5:47 pm

@Fr0thgar: Most definitely >_<

@TrentTheFox: Join the bandwagon of rage and despair! xD

@darkMentality: Aw thanks! :3
Well, hopefully you won't see me hollowed THAT often ;P

@JackOat: Ninja Gaiden! :O Now there's a game that really got my Rage Gauge all on high! >_<
I prefer Dark Souls over Ninja Gaiden for the sole reason that I can follow what's going on at least with Dark Souls.
Ninja Gaiden really requires ninja reflexes! >_< I suppose I'm not ninja enough... ;_;



creation62 (Guest) October 13th, 2011, 10:03 pm

Sorry i haven't been posting. you did miss me, right...? :C

Anyway: Demons souls and Dark souls: probably one of the 2 shining examples of why you should own a PS3, which you have to admit, doesn't happen often (cue fanboy rage: I don't actually own a PS3. This isn't my opinion. look at... many of the VG news stuff. "Too many" have said Sony doesn't know what they're doing half the time.) anyway. ummmm... i forgot what i was going to say.


Skellys dont have souls :P

AsheleyinL2 (Guest) October 14th, 2011, 12:01 am

I found your site thanks to Extra Credits. Great job on those episodes :)

Skeletons will actually drop souls but you need to use a divine weapon for them to do so and to keep them from coming back indefinitely.

Ninja reflexes are learned :P keep at it. the Gaiden games are fun.

I look forward to more of your comic and art style ^^ i like the one shot pics of Iris cosplay.


vggal October 14th, 2011, 2:10 pm

@creation62: Yay! Welcome back! :D
Actually, 360 players finally get to experience the dread with Dark Souls :)

I wasn't aware until recently that Dark Souls is actually multi-platform. I think Fromsoft made a good decision to let others be able to experience the PAIN! xD

@AsheleyinL2: Thank you so much :) Much appreciated to hear that you enjoyed the episode! xD (Mac is happy again ;P)

I'm also glad to hear you like the Stylin' Sundays as well! >w< b



Gual-kun October 14th, 2011, 10:37 pm

My God! That looks VERY VERY VERY annoying and frustrating. Remember me to never play that game XD
I can think of some games with similar behavior just now...


monkey!11! October 14th, 2011, 11:47 pm

some people just can't get a break, even in a video game...


Minty (Guest) October 15th, 2011, 10:17 am

well, in times like these, i have a little saying :o

When life gives you lemons, make apple juice and let others wonder how the hell you did it.


vggal October 16th, 2011, 2:45 am

@Gual-kun: But it's so addicting! >_<

@monkey!11!: I know! ;A;
I should learn to relax! ;_;

@Minty: 'When life gives you lemons, make apple juice and let others wonder how the hell you did it.'
What a great statement! xD


Ausbloke (Guest) October 16th, 2011, 3:02 am

looks like screwattacks sending some trafic your way iris!


vggal October 16th, 2011, 3:27 am

@Ausbloke: Whaaaaaa :O Really?!!
That's so cool! >_< I hope they enjoy the comics xD

Thanks for the info! :D



creation62 (Guest) October 16th, 2011, 4:54 pm

To Deus Ex, to gears of war 3, or to Dark Souls. That: is the question.

well that was a bad quote :P

@vggal well that sort of gives a lesser reason to get a PS3, doesn't it? i mean, Sony has made a couple of bad decisions, but i hope they get better, because then it will only be Microsoft and Nintendo, and since the Xbox's community sucks so much thats actually the reason i switched to PC, and Nintendo is mainly kiddy games, games as a whole really don't need them to be the main faces of our community.


@Ninja Gaiden

JackOat October 17th, 2011, 12:30 am

That odd, I do pretty decent on normal and hard mode in ninja gaiden and my reflex is apparently low according to this site that i went to (apparently average human reaction is 200 while i score 240 average).



Gual-kun October 17th, 2011, 10:32 am

That's the worst part! ^ ^'... Cause that, never tell me to play! I'll ended the same o_o


vggal October 17th, 2011, 12:34 pm

@creation62: I heard good things about Deux Ex. I think I would give it a try because I heard you can beat the game without killing anyone. Kinda like MGS! xD
(Which I'm looking forward to the 3DS Snake Eater! >_<)

As far as gaming community goes. I like to stick with Steam. Some PC communities too are just horrible! For example, League of Legends. I hear the ladder community is better because more serious players are playing... But I'm not THAT good of a player, and the fact that people rage over somethings that are just not worth fighting over.
I hope I see more genuinely pleasurable human beings to play with than trolls and worse yet... PRO TROLLS! ;A;

@JackOat: If you are over the human average, I don't think you should call yourself low! ;P

I'd say 240 is really good! :|
Anyways, I prefer the slower paced games like turn based strategies. My personal favorite is Advance Wars. I'm still waiting for Nintendo to announce Advance Wars 3DS! >_<

@Gual-kun: ;_; We must be strong!


VennyTheDude (Guest) October 17th, 2011, 10:42 pm

Try "farming" some Humanity when you get to a new area. As long as the boss of that area is alive, you can get up to 10 Humanities by keep killing the enemies over and over. This is the very reason why you sometimes see your Humanity counter go up by one or two out of random while killing normal monsters. What you do is light up nearest bonfire, kill all enemies in the area, return & rest at the bonefire, and rinse, repeat.

It does take time & is bit tedious, but it's entirely optional & still something worth considering if you are far from the rat farming area (especially in the early game).

Another side effect is that you do accumulate nice amount of souls for leveling & buying/upgrading/repairing stuffs.

PS: I love your comic & keep up the good work! :)


vggal October 17th, 2011, 11:07 pm

@VennyTheDude: That's good advice! ;_;
I just hope my attention span keeps up now that Arkham Asylum will be out so soon! >_<

Dark Souls or The Dark Knight? Argghhh!! the choices! D:

Oh, and thank you for the support! =w= b



Chano-kun October 18th, 2011, 9:46 am

¡Crap MMOs!


vggal October 19th, 2011, 7:43 pm

@Chano-kun: Em Em Ohhhhhhhhhhhhh~~~~ >w<


Sooo had to comment XD

Kamikazejones (Guest) October 25th, 2011, 3:16 am

This is sooooo true the game itself has the knack for lifting you to epic levels of greatness only to cut you down with a well placed riposte, backstab, cliff falls and all manners of hazards. I so love and hate this game. ("(n_0)")

Love your comics, Iris is so adorable hollow or otherwise! XD

P.S. and on a side note i think joining the Order of the White Covenant increases your humanity at random, not sure though but i've noticed my character gaining humanity just standing and doing nothing but that was rare or you could hunt rats XD


vggal October 25th, 2011, 2:19 pm

@Kamikazejones: Love/Hate Relationship best describes this game for sure! >_<


Brings back Memories

Lyhawk (Guest) November 5th, 2011, 3:07 pm

Little bit older but still have urge to comment:

Exact the same happened to me (Killing some minions, dying, lost 5000+ Souls because fallen to death)... Now I know I´m not alone TwT

Love the Game´s feeling and details as well as the fact you don´t know whats going on like 90% of the time. For examole I just vowed to a white spider woman (Queelags Sister?) after I accidentally kiled her guardian and now I´m servant of chaos...wut? What does that mean? Why can I give her humanity? And will she ever start to talk? Confusion is confusing!

before I forget: Love your comic too of course^^


vggal November 5th, 2011, 9:51 pm

@Lyhawk: Thanks so much! Hope to see you stop by often! :)
