Today’s Comic:  “The Force Unleashed”

About this comic

Gotta thank everyone in the chatroom / video stream last night for hanging around while I did the comic…was way fun.

Sometimes I just like screwing around with word play, and taking things literally, and today’s comic is a reflection of that.

    This is one of my all time favs.

    Awesome, and I can tell you’re still listening to Buzz Out Loud ;-)

    I played the demo last night, and the game is pretty awesome. I was a little frustrated with the last part, though. Randomly triggering a button-press sequence is not my idea of good times.

    I played through the demo last night too. Good fun! I, a well, got pissed at the end. I don’t think its random when it happens though. I don’t remember if it was a combo that lead to the button pressing, or what, but i almost found a pattern.

    Good times though.

    As well, great comic Scott! I giggled a little. And that makes it all worth it for me :)

      After upgrading my MacBook Pro to from Lion to Mountain Lion, I caonnt use Hamachi, which is a serious problem as I bought the subscription and configured company network with it. I use also Neorouter and for now it is a working alternative for me under Mountain Lion. The symptoms: Hamachi (V 2.1.0.300) application itself works. The problem appears when I try to connect any way to any other computer. Short portion of data is sent, then the communication totally hangs. Same with ssh I can connect to a server but issuing any command which returns longer result (top, ps -e etc) displays some data and hangs. Then the Mac’s terminal is hanged, I have to close it, when I retry the behavior is same. Also caonnt open any web service I have in the Hamachi network. It start the communication, transmits a part of data and hangs too, regardless what browser I use. These effects happen only via Hamachi, the other ways for connecting to my servers work good (Neorouter and Mac’s VPN, TunnelBlick (OpenVPN)). This behavior caonnt be reproduced, however, on each Mac upgraded to Mountain Lion my colleague has a MacBook Air, Hamachi works after Mac OS upgrade (he’s in the same Hamachi network, tried to connect to the same nodes).

    @Bini

    I died about 5 times, and sometimes I would be given the opportunity to jump and then slash, and others I wouldn’t. I call it random because I couldn’t find out how exactly I was triggering it and that is just annoying. They should have just let me force push the AT-ST off the ledge… ;-)

    Great comic Scott, love it.

    I unleashed the force last night in bed and threw the covers over my wife’s head. She didn’t seem to like it… ;)

  6. Kevin says:

    Did anyone else catch that the “protagonist” in The Force Unleashed is called “Starkiller”? Obviously a nod to Lucas’ first name for Luke: Luke Starkiller.

    Also, why the hell is this game listed alphabetically on the Xbox under “T”? Stupid Microsoft…

    Scott, I really like the way you are drawing what sounds like like yourself and what certainly sounds like brian. Also I have been really into the podcast lately so keep up all the great stuff.

    @kevin

    Lol I didn’t even realize the BOL reference heh.

  9. wolfgang says:

    Niiiiice. One of the best ones you ever did.

  10. TD says:

    That demo was gorgeous =D. I hadn’t decided yet whether to get it or not, now I definitely am. I died once against the AT-ST (by being pushed off the edge no less >.<), but I found a way to lower its health really REALLY fast. Stun it w/ a force push, then throw explody boxes at it =D.

  11. Utahrogue says:

    Thanks for the music and to watch the master at work

  12. Flatlander says:

    It’s not random at all, if you get the AT-STs health below 5 percent an ‘X’ icon will appear on the screen, if you press X then you start the finishing move sequence. If you don’t you don’t start the finishing move sequence. However if you are frantically mashing X I can imagine you missed the prompt.

    Run for the hills!

    Good comic..one of your best. I like the idea of keeping the force inside a cardboard box. :)

  14. Cantonkid says:

    I just saw Lucas Unleashed…I mean Star Wars the TV series…I mean Clone Wars.

    It was not terrible, but the movie (series) would have been great if they would have released it ‘before’ Ep III.

    Looking forward to the new game though.

  15. Hadgi says:

    Im not sure but ithink is was the one he got the idea from because during the chat i said you should do the “force” unleashed, such as someone taking a poo

  16. David says:

    Ha, after reading the 1st window, i thought he ferted…

  17. Pineapple Farmer says:

    “Odin’s Beard!” That’s grand! I’m gonna start to say that during conversations now!

    *Is glad his cave has 10MB DSL*

  19. Sokkratez says:

    Heh, yeah. Either he’s listening to Buzz Out Loud, or he’s watching Anchorman. I’m going to bet it’s Buzz, though ;)

  20. MacGuinness says:

    Buzz Out Loud fan? Great comic! :)

  21. Tuss4 says:

    ahahahaha, nice work.

      If this blog is any indication of what your life is like, it’s a wodner you’ve managed to live as long as you have. It seems like everything that comes within a certain distance of you attempts to murder you.
