"A video game comic and blog that would have been awesome and relevant 10 years ago. Maybe." -Famous Website
Crono and Lucca were always best friends, but the separation of a few hundred years from last week's comic has only made Crono's heart grow fonder. Returning to the past, Crono wants to make it up to Lucca using his superior entertainment skills to soothe any hard feelings from his little prank.
Before I go into my tangent, I wanted to mention that Life in Aggro now has an RSS feed. You can subscribe to it and find out exactly when we update so there will be no more wondering WHEN in the day we get around to it.
Recently, I've been having a strong desire to make comics on Western and indie developed games to broaden our repertoire. Of course Pie and I have been heavily influenced by the industry coming out of Japan, but that is not to say we haven't been completely enthralled by amazing titles originating outside of the land of the rising sun. There are a lot of studios doing absolutely amazing things out there and we definitely want to cover some of their creations in comic-form.
One of the games I mentioned I wanted to do on our forums was American McGee's Alice. I remember thinking that it was rather cool, and decided to load it up to show Pie some of the elements that made it memorable. It just so happened that the sequel in the series went up for sale on Steam for $15 last weekend and a friend was kind enough to gift it to us. Pie and I have been attempting to be frugal until we get some merchandise made, so this was a very special treat.
I only ended up playing for a couple hours and barely made it anywhere. I was constantly ogling the environments and characters - being hypnotized, almost bombarded, by the impressive art direction wherever I wandered. The first game had amazing graphics and art direction for its time too, but seeing Madness Returns was rather breathtaking. I feel like even if the gameplay was redundant, as suggested by this GameTrailers review, I would still simply enjoy the ride to see the creators' vision.
Hey all, just a quick heads up:
We now have an RSS feed that you can subscribe to! It will let you know whenever we update the site and is a pretty handy tool if you are into that sort of thing!
If you aren't into it, than at least you can enjoy the pretty orange RSS button at the bottom of the site. Isn't it pretty? Isn't it?! D'awww.
