"A video game comic and blog that would have been awesome and relevant 10 years ago. Maybe." -Famous Website
What can I say? The holidays mean different things to different people and sometimes those things aren’t expected. This is our first comic that doesn’t have any tie to video games or news; it is simply Christmas in Aggro.
Pie and I use to discuss the idea of having kids and some of the fun things we could do with them. Of course, my mind likes to stray toward the devious. Even though Pie would never suggest such things, the way she laughs at my jokes of tormenting children, the more I believe she has a little bit of a dark side within her as well.
A long while back we were joking about this child gate that we have in the house. When my mom passed away, Pie and I took in her dogs. At the time we thought Pie was allergic to dogs (turns out it was just cats), but I ended up installing a child gate to keep them in our kitchen temporarily. Many times our guests would ask why we have the gate when we don’t have kids. After being asked this a few times, Pie and I came up with some unique and funny ways to use it if we did have kids – namely to taunt and tease them. We forgot the exact joke from back then, but its spirit lives on in this comic.
Well, I hope everyone out there is enjoying their vacation time and having very warm and happy holidays. Stay safe and be merry – we hope you enjoy today’s entry and we’ll see you next Friday for our last comic of 2010!
When I went to see my mom on my most recent trip up north, she got Bear and me stuffed animal monitor wipes. They look and feel really awesome and smell like... lemon scented chemical... I think. (kinda like how when you buy "cherry" flavored cough syrup that doesn't quite taste like the "cherry" you remember) Bear has a tiger and I have a bunny. I don't remember why but Bear decided to stick the bunny wipe into my face while saying "Bunny-in-the-face!" The way he said it was so "charming" that I just can't help smiling when I think of him saying it. It's one of the many things I love about Bear; I mean, how many people do you think would come up with and do something like that? XD -especially in the manner of speaking and with the sense of tasteful timing he has? =)
Bear and I've been listening to one of the soundtracks to Wild Arms 5 and I can say that it's one of the best video game soundtracks I've ever heard. I loved Wild Arms 5 back when I imported the Japanese game years ago and though I'm not completely fluent in Japanese, I don't regret it at all; it was simply awesome having a first taste of the game and hearing the amazing Japanese voice acting. I think I've clocked in about fifty hours on the Japanese version and I think maybe twenty-ish hours in the English one. Listening to the soundtrack really makes me want to go back and continue playing. I never finished it because school and life got in the way and I eventually had many other things on mind that I had to do. I highly recommend getting this game if you have a PS2 and happen to see it in a store at a decent price; I strongly believe it to be a game that represents the PS2 at its very best.
