Guitar Hero III: "Power Over Something"
Posted: Wednesday October 17th, 2007 by

You had to see this ugly piece of continuity coming, though I bet you didn't expect such terrible box artwork*. For that I apologize. It was a very long day and my brain was too tired to be more stylized in my efforts. Consider this a "Poopy" strip without Iggy if that's what it takes for you to forgive me.

Oh and don't worry! In the world of "The Game Store", Brad (Ted's boss) always quits and comes back. Usually due to the lure of a raise. Because if Brad goes, Ted is the next in line of seniority. How scarey is the idea of Ted running a video game store?

Actually, it's probably the kind of store I'd like. Imagine slinking into a darkened crypt where upon ornate pedestals, resting atop beds of fine silk, video games are glorified, bright lights dancing off of their surfaces. And while you stand there mouth agape, eyes twinkling, bottom lip quivering an enticing voice whispers "it can be yours... for a price". Okay maybe that's taking it a bit too far. But it would be awesome, at least in my mind, to go into a store where video games are offered up as treasure, rather than slapped up on a wall with gaudy pricetags and a brief note indicating that this is the "featured pick" the stores resident, self-righteous blowhard.

Nothing's wrong with a little oddly placed objectification right?

* With a little rest under my belt, I went in and made some basic edits to the box graphics, added in some details and shadows to make it look more like the box is bulging around Ted's head, and threw in some damage to the boxes corners.
