It's just like playing online! Just with my team mates repeating themselves a little bit more.
Shamus, are you going to do a non UT3 comic soon? I'm just wondering how much more there is to say about UT3.....

Great comic

So, if there is only one more UT3 comic left, I can't wait to see what other games will be lampooned.

There is but one UT3 comic remaining, and then we shall turn our attention elsewhere.
Good news! Now I'm guessing what the next one's going to be about. You've covered the ridiculous story and the explanations of the game types. This week you covered the stupidity of the A.I. which is also oddly like playing online. Meh, I'm stumped, I'll just wait for Thursday. Good comic btw.

Oh no, I just realized I'm the guy who dies stupidly by rushing the enemy base alone. I always thought I was the elite recon mo-fo.

You're absolutely right about team balancing.

We need more Engies and fewer Medics...er...we're still discussing UT3, aren't we?

I'm glad you are doing these regularly. This is one of the funniest I've seen in a long time.

Hey, come on now. Real people aren't much smarter. Except for the tank thing. Epic has never been able to teach those guys to drive.

Dude, the only time you have too many medics is if they account for more than half the team.
Engineer is full at three.

Maybe your XBox isn't working right?
I should send it back claiming no preteens have insulted my sexuality or mother's well being yet. I'm horrified as to what they would send back.

Another XBox, a copy of Halo, and a note saying, "lol ur mom".

Oh, right, Shamus Young. I was wondering why these strips were good, as opposed to the usual poor fair most new content offers. I enjoyed DMOTR, and Chainmail Bikini was pretty good while it lasted. Good to see more of your work.

Wow. I've heard the commentary joke plenty of times, but you actually managed to make it funny again.
