This site seems to lock up my computer and eat its processor for a few seconds every time it has to load a new comic.

"What!?! Grandpa, you can't be good at video games, you're old!" "Son, have you ever played Ninja Gaiden?" "No..." "Then stfu and come back when you can beat an actual game."

From the pose on the old man in panel 5, he is clearly about to show us all how to catch our first pokemon... with his mug of coffee.

I'm assuming it is ment to be the xbox 360 controller. Maybe you should have had a picture of it next to you as your draw it as you draw it as the colors of the buttons are wrong and your miss the analog sticks. other than than nice comic

The shape of the controller (not buttons) looks more like a wireless white genesis controller than anything else

Joe's story telling is fine. He wouldn't have put the title in the final panel if this wasn't part of an arc. This isn't "Memento (2000)".

kids: ogre's a noob for using club

As a short explanation: Gramps sees kids getting PWNED hardcores and picks up a controller to help them.
On the noe of personal inference, this will either result in the Grandpa making it worse (making him the noob) or saving the day (the kids are the noob)

@Annoying Bastard

It's the start of a new arc, and it's an old school gamer picking up a controller so he can show his "noob" kids how to play.

Once again he needs to work on his story telling. Either this is just a bad joke or no one understands what the hell gramps did.

It looks to me to be a strange remake of the first Final Fantasy.. Warrior, Black Mage, and White Mage, taken down by an ogre.. Used to happen to me all the time outside the elf town, except I had a fourth character. Which brings us back to "strange remake". What, are they each controlling one?

[url=#user_comment_33579]@vulpis[/url] He beat them with one hand, while not even facing the TV? Also what fantasy game (which appears to be an RPG) allows 3v1 battles?

[url=#user_comment_33560]@1hp[/url]: Personally, I was interpreting it as Gramps had the controller all along, and the kids only just realized who 'pwned' them in the last panel.

White mage is androgynous. Enough said.


Funny how everyone seems to judge them on hairstyle alone.

Amazing how a obvious white mage expy gets charged as sexist. Get off of it, red hair is obviously a boy,you can tell by the chin and sideburns.

[url=#user_comment_33560]@1hp[/url]: wow, i didnt see it like that, I thought that it was going to be a new story arc about how grampa tries to help them but always fails, then ends up saving the day. Your interpretation gets immediate lulz though, so im going to take it yor way until the next panel shows up (if its an arc)

you know, I can't help but think that this comic would have been better if the panel order had been switched around so that the grampa was the ogre that pwned them. It does seem to be how peeps are interpreting it even though the pwnage happened before he even picked up the controller
