    #9: Getting Hit Up For Premium Content...

    Tycho expounds on Dragon Age's questionable approach of selling "premium content", despite the core game having been on the blocks for the past couple of years.  I get what he is trying to say, both in the news section, and also in today's comic, but really, this...

    #6: Guest *****: Samwise Didier Does Penny Arcade...

    Pretty cool that established artists and comic ***** writers like Bill Amend (Foxtrot) and Blizzard's own Samwise Didier wrote up strips for Penny Arcade for a week:

    #7: Communications Controls

    This one is potentially controversial, but really, it's just poking fun at the silliness of such campaigns. Regulating thought and speech, indeed...I can't see it happening any time soon:

    #14: D and D - Darkened Suns...

    It's not often that I get to play Dungeons and Dragons anymore.  And that's OK, it was a part of my childhood, I suspect is probably best left where it is, or was, but I do hear of adult guys getting together to relive the old glories. Let's just say this little...

    #8: Automata

    #1: Laptop Heat (PA's Take On Macbooks) :p

    I confess I have a pretty strong weakness for goofy comics, particularly when they involve young, nerdy guys who rant and argue about topics such as computers, politics, the web, and RPGs.  Pretty simple, I suppose, but growing up reading comics like Bloom County...
