The Destructoid Comic: Revenge of the Red Rings

Feb 25 // Mikey


The story so far:

JIm and CyberneticTigerZ, team up to battle the threat of the monstrosity known only as the Destructor-toid. CTZ decides the only way to deal with the beast is to call in RetroforceGO!, a team of skilled warriors hardened on the pixellated battlefields of the 80s and early 90s. With the knowledge that the RFGO! team are on their way, CTZ and Jim make their way towards the giant robot.

This weeks winning comment was from EarthBounder Ness:

Cut to Jim and Hamza's surroundings, where they've been encompased by a small number of low tier F.S. (Failed System) bots, Ataris, Jaguars and 3D0s. The bots are ready to launch an attack on the two heroes when suddenly a barrage of Super Scope blasts tear them to shreds.

The RFGO! team rushes to Jim and Hamza's sides. "Just in the knick of bloody time!" Jim shouts, wide eyed at the sight of what he now sees.

Cut out once again, further this time, showing that the bots that had surrounded the group initially were just the first wave, they are now surrounded by an entire army. Jim, Hamza and RFG all shout "Bring it!" as Topher throws an empty Slurpee cup at the bots.

I couldn't really get the 3D0, Atari and Jaguar bots to look right, so I spent a lot of time thinking about what I could use instead, but still keep it grounded to the suggestion. So I thought, failed system bots, a lot of people are complaining about their 360s dying ... hmmm ...

Then I played Left 4 Dead. Then watched Resident Evil: Degeneration. Then Played the Ravenholm chapter in Half-Life 2. Then suddenly, I had it! Failed consoles, Red Ring of Death ... dead ... UNDEAD ... ZOMBIE CONSOLES. Unfortunately, I didn't have enough room for RetroforceGO! to save the day.
