Root of the Problem by tipofthesword Root of the Problem by tipofthesword
A: What?! Another comic? What's the occasion? Nothing much, it's Spring Break at the old University of Oregon so I had a little bit of free time to make a comic based on a conversation that actually occured at the game store I work at, sans tackling. So yeah, Chandler's 20th B-day was last wednesday, the 19th, it's crazy to think that we started the comic when we were 17. Since the last comic, I have 1) succesfully moved from Bend, Oregon, to Eugene, Oregon in an Apartment with Chandler and two other friends. 2)Finished 2 terms at University of Oregon, studying computer science and digital art, 3) played through several games, including, but not limited to, Oddworld Strangers Wrath, Warcraft III and the expansion, Uncharted, Ratchet Future, and Portal. 4) gotten Chandler on WoW. 5) read through an entire book series about dragons in the Napoleonic wars (they all rock, starts with His Majesty's Dragon, read them now if you like fantasy and dragons) and 6) Switched jobs from a game store in Bend to the same chain of game stores in Eugene.

I also applied and got phone interviewed for a design internship at Insomniac Games, the best place on the planet, the interview went well I think, but the guy (Colin Munson, Lead Designer) said he has a LOT of other people to talk to, so I doubt I'll get it, but just talking to the guy who was the lead designer of some of my favorite games in the world for 20 minutes was cool enough.

That's it, until next time!

"He'll just play it at his friend's house anyway."

People who feel that powerless should never have kids, and if they do, their kids should be taken away from them with all deliberate speed.

Nice to see a new strip. Been hovering around your comic site thing for a while looking forward to more.

Wow, an interview with Insomniac? That's just incredible. They're up there with HAL Labs and Bungie in "places where the heavens meet the earth"

I think Temmy is getting a tad on the spoiled side in Ivory (haven't quite finished it yet)

Yeah, but I did read the sneak preview excerpt. Funny as hell X3

ohhi, I was thinking about TOTS the other day. 8D

Anyway. That's a pretty weird parenting method right there... desensitising a five year old to that kind of thing... XD
