Yup same here, spent a while wondering how a Mortal Kombat advertisement was the punchline. Maybe it was a joke about how Valve allows any old crap ports onto their system?canadamus_prime said:I can't read the last panel because the Escapist's other shit is covering it.
FFN have been around for a looong time, and have been around for so long because of their clear success and large fanbase. Criticism is always nice - but I sincerely hope that you do not believe that in order for them to be successful, that your current criticism is relevant, as they have already found their success using their own unique style.The Harkinator said:Since I always complain about "too many words/pictures do not work" whenever I comment here I'll drop the "brevity is the soul of wit" thing in favour of something nicer.
Holding a nerf gun to one's own head, and the STOP BEING REASONABLE sign were decent uses of your visual medium. Try to expand on that for further success.
The mavericks kinda more iconic depending on your fandom given its (A) pretty easily modded into a steampunk themed gun for cosplay and (B) was the basis for a pretty awesome Megatron toy in 2006.Sledgimus said:A Nerf Maverick? Get with the times, grandpa. Should have been a Hammershot, or maybe a Doublestrike if you need something concealable.
I'm under no illusion as to how long FFN has been going on. I know it has been around for a long time and has plenty of fans. That doesn't mean me thinking they have too much text on the panels, and make too little use of all the visual aids a comic provides, is irrelevant at all.GarouxBloodline said:Snip
Just keep in mind that there is a difference between constructive criticism, and imposing one's own perspective onto others. FFN have always found success by utilizing the humour seen even today in the present, as seen with this comic - you saying that they would be more successful by going an entirely different direction, leans more towards the imposing spectrum of debate.The Harkinator said:I'm under no illusion as to how long FFN has been going on.
