"Your earnest sexism is endearing, private Raccoon" has to be the best line I've seen from Critical Miss so far.

Apart from the whole comparing sex lives to videogame logic comic, maybe.

So I guess that at the end of the day...

Erin dies alone.

...That's actually a rather depressing CSI moment.

I don't know anymore if you guys are trying to make Gunny an asshole or not. On one hand, he is leaving a (wo)man behind, on the other hand he knows what's important. I actually kinda like him.

I wonder if next they'll just try to convert her, instead of kill her. That's their MO, and she gets to talk her way out of it. I bet Gunny knows, too ;)

OOOOOOO! On the off-chance that Erin actually does fight back, let her get a headshot and have confetti spray out! :D

Grunt Birthday was one of the few things I genuinely enjoyed about the Halo games. :3

Guys, do we really get invested to this? This Drama of the Raccoon not be able to help Erin?
She is playing a Videogame for crying out loud.
She will not die in reality because of this.

Well, depending on her level of insanity... it's not impossible for her to get herself killed this way...
So there is some drama here, but I agree it's kind of Stupid that Erin hasn't decided to play the freakin' game and shoot the aliens dead!
Still, if she does die here, I can imagine a joke about respawning or something.

But, if you die in the game, you die in real life... I learn that from Frankie Muniz, for glob sake!

OT: Now this will explain to those wanting Erin to take the shot before why she didn't take the shot in the first place...

Other than that, if only there was a warp zone to go from one side of the map to the other somewhere...

Don't miss the forest for the trees. We're coming up on a pivotal character moment. The real life consequences here are anything but physical.

Gotta admit, the other solders were always secondary when it came to Halo games. What's important is getting the mission done, gunny is just playing his part.

Pft, she's the player character in the first level of a scifi shooter. She should be practically unkillable. Shepard would be holding back the evasion single handed with nothing but a pistol. ;)

Erin has already learnt the most valuable skill for any modern FPS: Hide in cover until your health recharges. There's no need to worry about Erin, she's de facto immortal in her current state.

I like EDA but I rather feel that Critical Miss is suffering since Grey and Cory started this. I mean, we haven't had a new CM since the 7th, and EDA was meant to be their side project wasn't it?

Although that "Your earnest sexism is endearing, private Raccoon" line might be one of the best lines to ever come out of a Webcomic.

YEEEeeeaaa... yeaaah... yeah... er............ woo...

OT: Maybe Erin will have one of those introspective moments where she confronts her inner demons and transforms into a Bruce Lee style doom engine! Although given the theme of the comic it will probably just be sad...

Can't wait...

Oh no, a person who doesn't give a shit about anything or anyone, and constantly shit talks those around her is reaping the results of her behavior. Boo hoo, I'm supposed to feel bad for her at this point? Oh, wait, no, no I don't. Let her die so she can stop bothering everyone in the world.

The one thing I can say about this comic line is that it seems to have isolated Erin's shit behavior into it's own strip, so that the CM stuff can actually go back to just talking about games and stuff. Instead of it being a platform for this emotional little freak bag.

Yes, you are correct, I don't like Erin at all.
