May gets a new chassis except...

... it's a newer model from the same line
... it's a model meant to compete with the original Philomena chassis
... it turns out she sucks at flying
... it can turn into a mini-car and she's offered a job as a racer
... it turns into a small boat or jetski
... it's the same model as CorpseWitch's old chassis
... it's the same model as Milli's
... it's modeled after Sven due to a comedic misunderstanding
... she's now called 'Swearberry' (same chassis as Melon's)
... it's a drider/Jorōgumo style
Sven is not a mooch

Side note that occurs to me: Rebellion Games are in the latter stages of developing a sequel to the game Evil Genius (basically a tower defence game mixed with 'You, too, can be Bloefeld'). Suddenly I find myself wishing for a playable character based on Hannelore with another character, maybe Pintsize, as her senior henchman. Can you imagine how much fun Hannelore would be shown to be actually trying to take over the world? Executing a minion for 'failing her for the last time' before squeaking: "Oh! I'm sorry!" or "Messy, messy messy! Someone clean it away now!" Her doomsday device is, of course, a plague of robot cleaners who will wash and scrub 24/7 until the nations of the world surrender! She's evil but she's also sweet and you couldn't help but feel sorry for her sometimes...

Okay, I accidentally missed the Thursday comic, and upon opening QC this morning I had no idea who that guy was.....At first I thought it was Landon (who Roko talked to about AI body assignment recently [not the body assignment fucker who was condescending, the other one]) but then I realized the hair color was different. Even after reading the Thu comic I was still doubtful whether it actually was Sven...

Can't say I'm in love with the recent art changes as I think it's not an improvement over his previous style, but it's his comic and I'm sure I'll get used to it again.

I've had enough frustrating discussions about games in the past, like the guy who felt Civilization was a terrible game because living in mud huts and never advancing to agriculture wasn't a viable strategy. Some opinions are just too... alien.
As for Civ, I think your friend just wasn’t trying hard enough; someone just beat Civ VI without any cities at all, never mind huts…
Ha, I'm reminded of Ascendancy. Supposedly it was possible to "win" without ever leaving your home planet and becoming a spacefaring species.

Or Nier Automata, where it is possible to finish the game simply by jumping off the wrong ledge in the opening level! Although that's the lead game designer's idea of a practical joke so I'm not sure if that can be called a balancing mistake.

And Hanners is sounding like her mum again...

“Release the virus.”

Unfortunately, when she did, it entered our world.

Oh man, I was kinda hoping he wrote that comic in 2015 to make it line up exactly (since it was her 5-year plan). Alas, it was 2013....I suppose I can imagine it was released and already around in 2018 but slowly building...

This week is the first time I have come to realise my Seth hatred is My Problem.

He's not even being particularly egregious this time. In fact he is actively trying to work out what doing the right thing consists of.

Still hate him. Is it time for me to forgive?

...Also why was I mad at him? I've only read all these strips once  :psyduck:

I'm admittedly disappointed that nobody voted for the power wheels transformer chassis.
I might still take a crack at drawing it anyways.

Also, because I'm tired; segway-mermaid chassis.

Personally, I'm not going to blame an artist for doing work that pays the bills. Especially as an artist myself.

It definitely isn't that. If I am a capitalist anywhere it is in music.

Yes, its amazing how many people forget that the phrase professional musician includes the word professional.

I'm also reminded of an old interview with Richard Thompson (a musicians' musician if ever there was one, but whom major commercial success has always eluded. If memory serves me right it went something like this:
Inteviewer: So is this intended as a more commercial recording?
RT: I always try and make commercial recordings. Obviously I'm not very good at it...

Same. Big favourite of mine in recent years.

Currently working on learning to play 'Beeswing.' Broken the back of it, but it's very hard despite being easier than it sounds...
