Comic 137: [APRIL FOOLS] Reboot incoming!

(so yeah, in case that wasn't obvious, this was this year's April Fools' joke. Don't worry, Consolers will stay the way it is x3)

Yes, as you can see, Consolers will be going through a reboot pretty soon! As the creator, I've been considering a change like this for a while... I mean, personified game companies and game history? Who would want to read a cheap Hetalia/Neptunia crossover ripoff like that anyway?

Instead, I'm starting fresh with more relatable characters and situations, less weeaboo artstyle, and less obscure jokes everyone will be able to get. I understand this is a big change for many of you, but after seeing more of this new improved Consolers I can assure you it won't be too big of a loss.

I'm sure the reboot will be fine, just please consider leaving a link to the old stuff for those of us who might want to still read it. :)

Of course, it will be left up as an archive. Gotta show how much I've improved since then, after all :3

Got to say, the idea of turning a comic about the personification of gaming companies into a comic about two guys who play video games and make pop culture references is both genius and unique. Though what would really push it up if they have some kind of quirky sidekick that is either a talking animal or a robot.

Thanks! And that's definitely on my to-do list. but I can't spoil everything yet...

Godammit, it's already April Fools in some places.

I would read this comic tbh if it was done by Zan

by Zanreo at 1st Apr 2017, 5:38 AM

Haha, thanks x3 Gotta bring my classic brand of humor somehow

Happy April Fools' Day, Zan. :)

Hehe, thanks x3

Wow, this looks phenomenal! I've never seen anything like this in a thousand years!

(honestly though, it would be funny if Sony and Microsoft actually sat on a couch and tried to come up with witty things about Nintendo games!)

by Zanreo at 1st Apr 2017, 10:07 PM

I know, such an original concept! I know for one thing I've never heard that Pokemon or Mario joke before...

(also, yeah, I could see that happening xD)

Hey, glad to see you taking my advice. Don't forget to check out the Holy Cult of Penny Arcade, too.

by Zanreo at 1st Apr 2017, 10:08 PM

But of course, gotta learn from the old masters of Gaming Comics

So edgy!

by Therazan at 2nd Apr 2017, 9:13 PM

And I'm still waiting for those merchandise...

(April's Fool! I'm actually broke!)

Psh! At least they avoided the usual about Samus :D

Turns out Apple was a Consoler way before the iPhone madness. You might be able to work this into something.

by Zanreo at 22nd Apr 2017, 1:09 PM

Yep, I know about the Apple Pippin - might do something about that at some point!
