The Destructoid Comic: The long way round

3:00 PM on 03.19.2009 // Mikey

 The story so far:

There is a giant robot on the loose, destroying the very city Jim swore to protect. Unable to fend it off alone, he calls on the help of CyberneticTigerZ! The last remaining warrior of the long forgotten Sharktroopers, equipped with state of the art cyber battle armour and his trusty B.A.N. Hammer, he agrees to lend a hand.

CTZ decides that even with his mighty awesome powersuit, this fight may prove too much, even for him. CTZ calls in a favour from RetroForceGO!, legendary warriors whose skills are supposedly unmatched. Will they be enough to destroy the rampaging robot?

This time it was kce05d that pushed the story forward, with the comment:

You mentioned that Topher would be piloting something (Ikaruga?) and while it would just make sense to fly everyone over to the giant robot, you should have them do the what most games and movies do and have them take the long way for some ridiculously arbitrary reason. Adds more pages to your story, pokes fun at that particular cliche, and I can just imagine hilarious commentary from Jim (the comic version, that is.)
Also, a bonus plot point from Topher:
Dyson's Dreamcast should be an engine component for the Ikaruga. Like I couldn't fly it because it was missing a part, and then Dyson pops the Dreamcast in there and it powers on. Then I fly away and do something awesome.
I decided to do a bit of mixing and matching this time for a double pager. I might do more double pages in the future as well, if a comment comes my way that's too awesome to squeeze onto one, I'll spread it out.

Check out both pages after the jump!

1. You have 24 hours from the time this blog was posted to suggest what happens next. After that, I'll choose the winning comment and the page will then be posted the following week.

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.

What adventures await in the subway tunnels? Will they even go into the subway tunnels? I don't even know!

What the hell is Sega using in the printing of their PS3 game manuals? I wouldn't be surprised if some dumb kid stuck one in a plastic bag and started huffing the fumes to get high.

Been playing MGO obsessively, still can't find anyone in their right mind that uses the Hush Puppy. So of course I'm gonna be the dumb bastard that tries.

Why don't we have more games that use filtered 3D models to creat faux-pixel art? It's such a cool, smooth style, but you never see any games using it.

Oh lawd. Next Saturday, Gamestop will have three hour access to Tri-Force Heroes. Nintendo, really wish we could just get normal demos from you more often, please!

Star Wars Battlefront is pretty good. Except the beta is basically a demo with nothing in it so that upsets me. but it's still pretty good.

Just cleaning up the last of Gotham's Most Wanted before I finish Arkham Knight. Those Riddler trophies...much more fun than Arkham City but my word, stop it Rocksteady. Love the game though, outstanding. In my top 5 this year, fo sho.

Looks like my copy of Chibi-Robo: Zip Lash won't be here till Tuesday. What do I pay for Amazon Prime for again? I think I might have to stream me playing it.

I have just heard someone say Uncharted was a "role playing game."

The glitched walking animation people carrying crates in Novigrad do is hilarious.

Undecided what to do with my weekend now my fiancée is away. One part of me says I should work my ass off, another says I should go watch The Martian while the last part tells me to be a slob, play games and masturbate to Highschool DXD.. Such a hard lif

The 1.10 patch for The Witcher 3 is out. Downloading for PS4. Pretty excited to see the changes, especially since it said the damn swamps in Velen would finally see performance enhancements, along with like a million other areas. So good! Yes?

Just got confirmation that a feature I spent way too long writing is going up on Sunday. Not a bad way to start the weekend off, though I wish I had a slot on a weekday.

PB&J sandwiches. Saturday morning cartoons. A blanket. Ominous sounds coming from the next room. Blood seeping from the walls. A dark figure standing in the corner, staring, watching. Darkness, everywhere. Such darkness. This is childhood.

Spiel was mightily expensive. Holy shit... Good thing I didn't bring more money with me, too. Saw enough stuff I'd love to own.
