"A video game comic and blog that would have been awesome and relevant 10 years ago. Maybe." -Famous Website
The Internet has a plethora of delights people would never otherwise be exposed to. As someone who grew up alongside the burgeoning Internet, I had the chance to discover rugged and questionable things that seemed otherworldly to my parents. How could they anticipate the lurking horrors when they didn't have a firm grasp on what it was? Nowadays though, the Internet, like gaming, is ubiquitous and I have to wonder if the next generation of immersed parents will be overprotective of their kids from that which goes bump in the net.
Rule 34 aptly states that "if it exists, there is porn of it". With sufficient searching, this rule has stood the test of time and perhaps there is a corresponding rule that states that "if it exists, someone has a fetish for it". Certainly, nothing else could really explain the fodder for this week's comic, a series of gamer-themed "Halloween Costumes" that double as lingerie. Ever want to make it with Mario or Luigi, complete with fake mustache? NO PROBLEM! They've got you covered! If that is too banal, I'm sure they can whet your appetite with something a little friskier. Perhaps you can even fulfill a longstanding childhood dream!
Pie and I have been watching a lot of TV shows lately, catching up on things that have passed by us over the years. Being busy is a pretty lame excuse, so I'll just clarify that we've been hibernating under an exceptionally cozy rock. We have been pushing to make time for shows and other media outside of games, partially in hopes to help stir up some creative juices and prodding us to think in different ways. If nothing else, it's a good excuse to laze about! XD
The first series that we binged on was Avatar: The Last Airbender. We were both thoroughly enamored with the show and it really got us thinking about how awesome it would be to work on something with a continuous story; it is, after all, nice to break form. For Life in Aggro, this usually manifests in the flavor of humor we do, with rhyming comics being a good example of this expression when we want to do something fresh. I think one of the strong appeals of a story based work is that it is more or less a finite project; one that you can eventually file away as being complete.
