The Comic Commish - February '13

You all know the drill: Got a sponsor for Gold membership, making comics to thank and the GB crew, ideas about new premium features that probably should never be, blah de blah de blah de blee. If you want to see more, check out these earlier editions back when I still had fresh ideas: October, November, December, January.

Premium Content For Your Premium Contempt

"Trash Champions" or "Kusoge KO" or "Defend Your Game" (they're all terrible names)

Since we're getting polls with the new chat client, I tried to figure out a new premium content feature that could use it. The idea I hit upon, by which I mean the idea I shamelessly ripped off of Screened, is that two of the crew pick games that the rest of the group perhaps doesn't like or think too highly thereof, and play them on a live feed while defending their strengths. The users watching can vouch for which game they prefer initially, before any cases are made, and the polls are then relaunched once Player 1 has put their game forward and defended it and once again when Player 2 has done the same with their title. Depending on how much the poll has skewed each time, we'll get some results on which of the two players made a better case and which of the two games is just better-received by the community overall.

"Skylander Sculptor"

When I picture everyone building their ideal Skylander in a competition, I can only see Jeff having any enthusiasm for it. Jeff will have constructed a super elaborate combination of a giraffe and a podracer with its own catchy name and element. For everyone else, it'll be like the Jurassic Park dioramas from that one last Happy Hour only filled with way more passive-aggressive insults about Jeff, the Skylanders franchise and being forced to make arts and crafts when they're supposed to be reviewing video games.

"The Gaming of the Dead"

Don't mind me, just being a dick. For those of you just joining us, I always do something deliberately insulting like this for the third entry. It's like my own little running gag for this feature.

I still feel obligated to say that Lords of Shadow is a RAD game!

Have I mentioned you draw MS Paint furniture freakishly well?
