Too Obscure For You?
Who is that dark figure in the top right? It’s Cecil the Dark Knight from Final Fantasy IV, one of my favorites. The stuff around him is a simulation of FARK.com’s comments thread. I am really hopelessly addicted to that site. It feels like a newsy version of my comic sometimes.
That BOOM you see (and the title of this comic) both come from Gears of War, an excellent shooter for the Xbox 360. That title is exactly what Microsoft needs to defend itself in the console war. It’s big, loud, and so gushing with testosterone it’s a wonder they don’t put a gym towel in the box.
