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!



THE RULES:
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.

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

I hate when a new game comes out and D-toid gets flooded with stuff about a game I don't know anything about and I'm just stuck here, sitting with myself and my freeware games...

Replaying Tales of Symphonia for the first time in years, I only just now realized how random the plot is. Our goals are decided at Lloyd's whimsy, while we get major revelations just 'whenever'. Still a good game, but I'm proud to be #TeamBatenKaitos.

Today at work, I made a reference to the DK Rap in one of my news pieces. Any day that I get to do that is a good day.

Everyone's playing MGSV...and I've just arrived in Skellige in The Witcher 3. At this rate, I'll get 'round to MGSV when the PS7 arrives.

That moment when you look at your backlog of games...and it looks back and you and says "What the hell man? you have over 100 games on this list!". I feel guilty...

We need a Dtoid RPG that stars Mr Destructoid, Gardevoir, Macho Man Randy Savage, and MATT DAMON. The hub zone will be Nekro's dungeon.
