    Poll: Uwe Boll Poll

    On The Daily Show, Lewis Black once said to Quentin Tarantino, "Look. I love your movies. ...STOP. TALKING." In that regard, I consider Uwe Boll the Anti-Tarantino: his movies are dreadful, but I never want him to stop talking, like when he's calling Michael Bay a "fucking retard". Not...

    Is McCain out of his mind?

    Let me get THIS straight: you are a lurker who has had nothing to say in the forums until OH NOES someone has one or more doubts regarding a politician on YOUR SIDE of the fence. At which point, you accuse THEM and everyone ELSE of being mindless thralls to the siren songs of Jon Stewart and...

    Zero Punctuation: Soul Calibur IV

    I just played the demo. O embleer Frith. What the hell happened to Tira's voice? Great. ANOTHER squeaky chirpy twerp. Just out of coincidence, it also destroys her entire bi-polar personality and takes away what we so enjoyed about that character in the first place. Great work, Namco. Keep...

    Zero Punctuation: Soul Calibur IV

    I call it Uno-Move style myself. :) I'm giving the Soulcalibur series a pass this time around. I've given Namco my money twice now for essentially the same game, and if I really want to play Astaroth again I can just drudge up my old copies of II and III to slam around some chump. (Especially...

    Zero Punctuation: Webcomics

    ...I'd just like to say "Thank you" to everyone on this thread who checked out my comic, [http://the-gil-monster.deviantart.com/gallery/#_browse/cartoons] I got at least 100 page views today, and I'm beting that a lot of that was from you guys. Again, thanks very much. :)

    Zero Punctuation: Webcomics

    I'm really enjoying this thread. What you said reminded me of the Bloom County series of strips where Steve Dallas broke his back (after he took a picture of Sean Penn). That was born of real life when cartoonist Berke Breathed suffered the same injury. That was a tragedy, but the strips were...

    Zero Punctuation: Webcomics

    ...That is, if the dialogue appears in the right order. CAD is a notorious sufferer of Dyslexic Word Balloon Syndrome, where the cartoonist forgets that people usually read left to right as well as up to down. "I'm trying to fix a leak in the ceiling." "What's the bucket for, Ethan?"...

    Zero Punctuation: Webcomics

    All. Hail. Yahtzee. Thank you SO MUCH for this. Unless they're discussing the games I'm actually able to play, I don't care for gamer comics. OH- and I'm actually one of those cartoonists who DOES answer the cry of "Let's see YOU do better". Whether or not I have is up to you...

    Zero Punctuation: Super Smash Bros. Brawl

    Agreed. Yahtzee once offended me in one of his reviews. Me. Not a game. He once called people like me "console 'tards." Then I made lunch. (....) ...All right, all right; you got me. I muttered "Jerk!" under my breath first, and THEN I made lunch.

    Zero Punctuation: Super Smash Bros. Brawl

    A great review. Confrontational like never before, but still a great review. A friend of mine brought his Gamecube to my apartment once and I got to play this game. Meh. All I saw was dustclouds from far away and a "1P" arrow pointing to where I was supposed to be. Then I kept falling off...

    Zero Punctuation: Condemned 2: Bloodshot

    Well hang on, now. The "it was a cult" line annoyed me at first, but by then the game was over and I didn't have to deal with them. Because plays of the first game always sent me to bed clutching my chest in terror, I knew I had to pick up the sequel. I don't like FPS games, but I love...

    Zero Punctuation: Condemned 2: Bloodshot

    Excellent review. My warning lights operate on the same system as Yahtzee's, it seems. Dolls? Okay. Knights? Sure. Then I got on the barge and found the Crossbow of Robot Slaying. (Don't ask. No, really.) It was easy to forgive both the suicide babies (I refuse to call them "blow-up dolls")...

    Warhammer/Tabletop gaming thread

    I guess this thread about tabletop gaming is good as any to post this: I made my own. [http://www.amputheatre.com/] The World's Goriest Board Game. It's based on every fighting game and every horror movie out there. It employs action figures (protoypes, all made by me) with removable...

    Favorite video game weapon.

    Mortal Kombat- Kabal's Hookswords. Manhunt- The Crowbar. Condemned: Criminal Origins- The Conduit. Hang on, I meant to say the Gas Pipe. No wait; I'm changing my answer again! The Paper Cutter Blade! No, the Sledgehammer! Er, the Fire Axe!!! Can I start again?

    Zero Punctuation or Zero...Imagination?

    Fair enough. Maybe Zero Punctuation has spoiled me. I'll also state that I've worked as a cartoonist, and I'm biased towards cartoons that are too rooted in realism. Yes, I know- 'toons with talking animals are harder to swap out of a newspaper's circulation than those with an all-human...
