Comic 78: Happy New Year!

(Currently Playing: Pop n' music Portable 2)
So it's almost 2016 (or maybe it already is depending on your timezone) and we're off to a new year! Who knows what will happen this year? All I know is that Consolers will still have lots of fun comics for you! :D

(Also, in the last panel I tried out some new things: Different brush with more pressure variety, and that weird thing where you draw it at a huge size and resize it down. Plus a few small slight attempt at clothing folds here and there. Didn't turn out too bad I guess?)

I love this look at things past and things to come!

And the second panel looks great. Never be afraid to try new things!

Yeah! I don't know what's in store for gaming, but all I know is... I'm definitely gonna keep getting inspiration.

(Also did I say second panel? Whoops, meant last panel! fixed)

(Last panel looks good, too. I stand by what I said.)

People can badmouth Nintendo all they want, but they've always got something good in store. This year wasn't half bad on their end.

Yeah! Just Splatoon alone made it a great year for them :D

It seems that the head of the so-called PC Master Race is guilty of miscegenation with the impure console crowd! Or, at least, would be if there was a credible reason to get a Steam Machine.

Lol EA, that's quite... an achievement.

Achievement unlocked! He's hoping to get it up to just "third most hated" this year...

I've actually played Pop'N a few times (it was a Fantasia machine at my local Round1), but the machine is now gone. : ( Oh well, it has a more steep learning curve compared to IIDX, personally. And with that, I caught up with the comic, and it took me just 2 pages to subscribe. :P

I hope you have a good 2016!

Nice, I just have the two PSP games (and Utacchi, a DS spinoff) Would love to try one of the arcade games, but sadly arcades aren't really a thing here anymore... at all. Still have to play IIDX and all the others, only other Bemani thing I've played is DDR...

And happy 2016 to you too!

by midnightclubx at 4th Jan 2016, 4:40 AM

Yeah, Bemani games are an expensive hobby if you wanna play more than just DDR, though even that is starting to get pricey. X_X

I only ever got into IIDX because I've been playing the songs via LR2 (IIDX's version of Stepmania sorta) with my American controller. ^^;

If I had the money and space, I would just buy the arcade machines myself... then again I heard Konami now has some DRM thing where you have to be connected while in Japan on their newer games, or something... -_-
