Comic 66: The Contract - 6

So this is kinda late since I've been busy with school work most of this week, and it turned out longer than expected... but here's the last page of the Contract.

Nintendo's other plans didn't work out, and later, she finds out Sony did much better than expected...

Aha! Here is the problem! Too many CDs!
You know what they say! All cartridges are the way to go!


Ya. That was quite the blow to Nintendo back then.
Good? Bad? Who knows.
A LOT of amazing games came out on the PS while N64 was kinda in the background for the very first time.
Maybe it was a good idea. You have to lose once in a while to rethink your strategies. Hm.

Yeah, Nintendo sure didn't expect that....

Of course, by the time Nintendo releases the Wii and the DS, they'll have newfound success and once again become a leading force in the industry, while Sony will have shot themselves in the foot with the overpriced PS3 launch, and all the big Japanese game industry developers will deteriorate into varying degrees of irrelevance.

Yeah... Must have felt like a bit of revenge there

Hahahaha Sega in that last panel XD

Yeah, he can be a bit jealous about not getting all the attention...

As usual, at the end of an arc, I say "take a bow". You've earned it. :)

by Zanreo at 18th Oct 2015, 3:55 AM

Thanks! This was fun to do, and deserved a remake...

On behalf of everything, thank you for showing the minimum amount of CDi required to tell this joke. Also, good on Nintendo for being sportsmanlike (did it go this smoothly in real life?).

by Zanreo at 18th Oct 2015, 5:54 AM

Haha, thanks, CD-i Nintendo was fun to draw :D

And not sure it went over that easy in real life, no...

Poor sega doesn't even stand a chance :'DD

by Zanreo at 19th Oct 2015, 2:24 AM

Haha, no... it's not going too well for him

XD That pixellated art style in the first panel!

I really like the ending to this mini-arc. It's cute -- almost but not quite sweet, which works perfectly here (and is a hard balance to strike IMO), and Sega at the end was the perfect little cherry on top.

Haha, yes :D CD-i was fun to draw :D

And thanks! When rewriting this story I thought this would be a good way to end it this time around.
