The Destructoid Comic: Goodwill hunting

3:30 PM on 07.25.2009 // Mikey

Previously on the Destructoid Comic:

Underground in the Destructoid City subway system, RetroforceGO!, Jim Sterling and the Failcast crew find themselves surrounded by a horde of zombies. Selflessly, the Failcast crew decide to to distract the horde allowing Jim and the RetroforceGO! team to escape.

It's been a long night, but they finally make it to the Goodwill store to get hold of a Dreamcast needed to power Topher's ship, the Ikaruga. The only hope the team have of bringing down the Destructor-toid and saving the city.

Meanwhile, it is revealed that the the menace behind the Destructor-toid is Tom Jackson, a vicious megalomaniac intent on proving to the world that videogames are a threat to the world.

This weeks comic was inspired by Technophile. You can check out his idea and the two new comic pages after the break.

Here is my idea. The remaining group finally makes it to their goal. The goodwill. We see the outside of a store called "Destructoid City Goodwill Forum"

Inside looks much bigger then you would think from the outside. Scattered around the store are shelves of games, books and what have you. There are a few people mingling about. Stocking a shelf labeled FNF is Mxyzptlk and behind the counter is yours truly. Mingling around the store can be a bunch of forum regulars like Banj, Morty and what have you. Fill the place with references :D

"Dyson! So good to see you. I have that Dreamcast you ordered" I say to the group.

"Oh and before you go, take a badge" as I say point toward the box of badges on the counter.
I say inspired because virtually nothing from the comment made it into the end product apart from Forums. This is mostly due me having to cut things to make it work. I also thought it would be nice to give the Forum a bigger part in the story.



THE RULES:
1. You have 24 hours from the time this blog was posted to suggest what happens next.

2. Try to keep it relatively SFW.

3. You can only make a suggestion once per week.

4. Your suggestion has to fit on one page (although I will occasionally stretch it to two pages).

Will the gang finally get hold of a Dreamcast and take down the Destructor-toid? Did the Failcast crew survive? Is CTZ still alive?

Adventure games are a big part of the indie scene, but there's a reason their popularity plummeted as graphics evolved. This clicking on everything, just in case, nonsense is for the birds. 90s birds, but birds.

Spotted some "The Adventures of Super Mario Bros. 3" (1989) DVDs in a store. Hearing music and sound effects from the game is more amusing than it should be - although the running shrill gets old quickly.

Diablo 3 patch 2.3.0 equals more grinding. Good.

Funny coincidence: Last week saw the release of Until Dawn, which talked about a Canadian tribe of Native Americans called the Cree,and last night a Cree woman (Ms. Canada) won the Ms. Universe contest. Butterfly Effect updated.

Finished Xenoblade Chronicles for the first time in about 107 hours. Got tired of attempting to clear as many sidequests as there were left available. Maybe in NG+...

Woah. I consider myself a nerd and all, but the trophy hunting community is next level. Is there a biopic about the people at the top of these leaderboards? I'd find that very interesting.

I have no idea what this game is about but if this isn't the best goddamn cover art ever, I don't know what is. [url=http://imgur.com/3yw3G8S][img]http://i.imgur.com/3yw3G8S.jpg[/img][/url]

So the XCX Special Edition was marked as in stock for 20 seconds and I got a copy! I am disproportionately excited considering what it comes with. Hopefully the art book and packaging are high quality. WOOOOOOOOO!!!!!
