Stolen Pixels #158: After Curfew, Episode 6

Tonight, Dr. Breen takes the hot coals to an axe-happy EA.

NASCAR in Europe? Odd.

I like this series, but I personally like the interviews better. MoAaaArrrrR! Anyways, good job.

EA seems to have a distinct hatred of gamers with longtime love affairs. I think the company may have been abandoned as a child

Nascar is the EU would never work, lol, so really shutting down a good idea...but a better question is why they even bothered releasing it...

Funny as always.

Yay, we get to see Lumines live on stage!!

I'm not surprised they decided to shut down servers on some of the "outdated" sports games; I guess they decided it would make people go out and cough up for the NEW REVOLUTIONARY TOTALLY IMPROVED IN EVERY ASPECT AND ORIGINAL WITH AMAZING NEW FEATURES! Madden game. It makes me sad to know that people probably will, in fact, do just that.

NASCAR in Europe? Meh, F1 is already tremendously boring and at least has non-oval circuits...

that was hilarious!

also, RORSHACH INTERVIEW??? OMG ITS GONNA BE THE BEST THING EVARR!!!!!!!!!!!!

/seizure

"Kneel before Zod!" ...er EA!

I'm American and even I don't get NASCAR. F1 on the other hand is the bee's knees (its cool, I like it).

Is it wrong that I look forwards to this particular strip all the time? I love the "late night show" format!

Awesome as always, but I can't wait for the next one with Rorschach! :D

Interestingly enough, EA didn't decide to shut down the servers for any games that I own. Yay, I guess? It's still quite odd that they would shut down servers for a game that is less than a year old...

I can't think of a single EA game that I own. Got a few with their old boring logo on them, but they're just the publisher. I probably subconsciously avoid EA, like I consciously avoid Disney.

Can't think of a single Sega game I own, either.

psh, i fart in the general direction of you Yankees's NASCAR.

once again a great comic, i thought you would make a joke about ea making free dlc exclusive to Americans, they are really begging to show their evil nationalistic side again after a few months of being beaten by activision.

EA is like the Blob of game companies: it wants to expand its power by absorbing smaller companies until it consumes the entire world!

On topic, I wonder if they shut down the servers for Def Jam Icon yet. That's been running for a while. And if not, too bad I could never find anyone to play with to do some achievement grinding.

I don't get the appeal of motor sports full stop. You just watch some guys drive round and round for hours at a time, very little happens, and then it ends. Especially F1, which has a weird system of points, and starting, and blah. If its that exciting, you could just go watch a main road for a while.

I see the FIFA servers getting kicked nexted!

Great! Had a good laugh :)

ha ha yeah shutting down servers is a good thing , nascar in europe ? hey don't let them see red necks who only turn left because being laughed at hurts ... yeah they should shut down for all ea games but that's just me ... i only have 2 ea games , one was a gift ,the otyer a used copy of ... nascar 09 , yeah ha ha

Oh EA, you make yourself such an easy target all the time!

Maybe the AI director also makes EA do something that pisses off the gaming community whenever he's bored too?

But in any case, very funny issue.

Sounds like EA isn't ready to cede the "Evil Empire" crown to Activision/Blizzard quite yet... I just wish that 2K games would be able to make another NFL game someday... I can't stand Madden...

Rorschach? He'll shoot you in the face!

If I haven't said so before, this is a brilliant idea. Dr. Breen as a late night show host? Good stuff.

Why have I given Dr. Breen Stan Lee's voice....

wow EA is kinda messed up xD
althought i don play the sports games that much :/

Driving in most places in Europe is like Nascar, for them its like making a game about daily driving.

I love the kneel-before-your-master bit

Why does madden need multiplayer servers, isnt it just a peer to peer 2 player match game?
Or is it matchmaking servers they shut down so you cant find anyone to play against?

As usual, you have produced a giant steaming pile of Win.
Keep doing what you're doing.

Ooh! Rorschach and Lumines as guests on the show? I can't wait!

Hell, I think that the first time I saw this strip, I read it as 'Kneel before Zod'.

Have you ever seen rally car races? People driving fast over lose roads with potential of disaster around every bend. I can see how some people don't like motor sport, I personally like the cars more then the races themselves. It amazing the engineering in them. It also makes me very disappointed in US consumer cars and how little power they get from giant engines compared to the Germans.

I'm waiting to the G-Man as a guest on After Curfew, any hope there?

Hahahahaha... funniest comic in a while! The NASCAR punchline took me by surprise and penetrated my funnybone with its penis of funny, raping a jolt of laughter out of me.

Too much?
