  1. That comic is equal parts cringy and cute.

  2. I wish that this matched my d3 console experience. Instead, I barely have the attention span for the console after playing through the game so many times on the PC.

  3. Just when I thought Blizzard couldn’t get any lamer.

  4. When did Penny Arcade become such fucking sellouts? They’re utter mouth pieces for corporate scumbags like Blizzard.

    • Blizzard paid for this, at least it is something like favour for Blizzard which will be returned in the near future…

      Anyway this comic is uber lame… “hey, look how D3 on console is awesome”

      Whatever…

    • Welcome to capitalism, Mel. If you’ve found a job that allows you to do exactly as you wish at all times and never forces you to make any compromises, congrats.

      PA has always taken commissions to do comics about video games, usually tied to the launch of said games. They’ve always claimed to turn down commissions and ads for products they don’t want to promote, which is more than the vast majority of us can say about our work activities.

        And here I thought you had found that, Flux.

        • Well kind of, since my “job” allows me time for hobbies like part time working on a Diablo fansite… Oh wait, you meant this?

          Semi-seriously… I don’t know what I’d do on this site if I could just do whatever I wanted to do. Say there was someone else doing most of the news and wiki articles and SEO stuff and forum/comment moderation, etc. I’d still do the podcast, but I’d definitely play a lot more D3 and write columns and strat guides and Decahedrons and such. It’s all the day-to-day maintenance and communication, much of it behind the scenes, that eats up most of our time on this thing.

  5. This cartoon would make sense if Diablo 3 was a good game.

    You are incapable of understanding that some people enjoy playing it? That’s really sad.

    • Where did I say that? I know that some people enjoy it. However, for me these people are the exception that proves the rule. Everyone has a right for bad taste.

    • your ability to comprehend is really sad Noodle

      mcdonald=lot of people enjoying=still sux

      do you get it?

      • I don’t think a lot o people are enjoying Mc’s food. They just go there because it’s fast food and they are used to it. I doubt they do not know about better quality foods. They are just lazy.

  7. It’s supposed to be fun or only a comic?¿¿
    Btw it makes no sense, there are no saved online profiles to continue you character from another console =S.

    So no sense, no fun…it must be the “new activi$ion blizzard”

    • It’s supposed to be sad.

    • There’s cloud char storage on the online accounts, and you can manually store it on a USB stick. Also, where and how does anyone live where they’re regularly playing the same game on different consoles? It’s not like there are console gaming cafes or something. Maybe if you’re like 14 and every day you go to a different friend’s house to play video games after school?

      No one I’ve talked to who is playing the console has mentioned this issue. What they are all worried about is playing multiplayer and getting in a game with cheaters, since there’s a lot of hacking already due to the lack of the online-only DRM we see on the PC version. Ironic, that.

    Are you capable of noticing that the game is now so deserted that staff members now account for a significant percentage of posts?

    • Really. Here?

      Damn, Elly must have hired about a hundred new people and not mentioned it to me. I hate when that happens.

    Because who in their right mind would ever want to part ways with such cheery and uplifting folk such as we have gathered here?

    I know right?

  11. Cute art, hideous plot. Similar to their commercial in plot, though.

    This isn’t even mildly funny whatsoever, and is so predictable I could’ve written the entire 5 strips with my eyes closed after seeing the first panel.
