About this comic

My PS4 will be here shortly, and at some point, it’s likely the Xbox One will join it under my TV. Hell, maybe even a Wii U once that Mario game hits. Either way, I LOVE new console season! It’s easy to get tribal and attach other people’s preferences, but for me and mine, I’d rather enjoy this time and remember why I love video games so much.

    Man, Populous (1 or 2) was awesome. I know it was released as late as the SNES, though it could even be on the PS1 for all I know. That said, it was always easier to play with a mouse in my opinion.

      perlhaqr,Our President has been “B. Hussein Obama” to me for quite a while, now. Pretty much since he proved he atdteend Christian church for the “hate whitey” sermons, and wrote that he would stand with the Muslims if things got tough.President B. Hussein Obama is my President. It just so happens I hate and oppose some 85-90% of what he has done since taking office. That percentage might be higher – I haven’t tracked everything he did, and so much of the unreported stuff has been reprehensible, Marxist, socialist, anti-Constitutional, abuse of his office, or some combination. Oh, and I do object to calling him a “black” president. He is just as much White as he is Black (one parent each, and it isn’t the Black parent that he uses to claim citizenship).You know, our last young President made history at the Bay of Pigs, and JFK had a history of serving his nation as an officer in the US Navy. I wonder what B. Hussein Obama’s “Bay of Pigs” will look like, and if he will squeak by without inciting a world war, too.

    I have to admit, I didn’t like the mouse playing the PC version of Populous. I got pretty good at manipulating the land with the keypad! And Scruff says “Seconded!” Scott… :)

    Atari ST represent! I used my Atari ST for 10 freakin’ years, through high school and university… I still miss the squishy keyboard.

    You are a true connoisseur of the arts, sir!

  7. I felt the same way for Nintendo because it had Zelda and Mario games. ;)

    Guh…spam-bots pretending not to be spam-bots.

    If only a divine hand could come down and smite them. ;-)

    I miss games like Populous. They were simpler but still engaging. I’m surprised we haven’t seen a port to iOS or Android.

    Hey Scott,

    I am so curious as to when you find time for all the stuff you do. Podcasts out the wazoo, games, clients, family, exercise….dang, you really seem to have it together.

    I get home from work, I have a couple of hours with my girls, and virtually 0 for gaming anymore. PS4 is a pipe dream for me at this point.

    I guess I’ll just live vicariously through you…

    YES, I wish a Populous remake would be Wonderful! I do miss that game.

      San Antonio is an interesting case bcuseae the city’s 1.32 million people spread across probably 90 percent of Bexar County. The MSA, however, includes an eight county region and illustrates that SAT is really an urbanized area with a relatively small gravitational pull, so to speak, compared to the more important metro areas in Texas. San Antonio’s city population figures belie the truly small size of its overall metro, which includes about 2.5 million people, compared to the other top 10 metros. Conventional wisdom might lead one to think that a city’s population ranking correlates with its overall importance and metro size, but, that’s not the case with SAT. It’s kind of the antecedent to Atlanta, whose city population is less than 500,000, but its metro is 5.2 million, illustrating that the city’s importance and overall gravitational pull are much greater than the city’s population would imply.
