Dulce et decorum est pro xbox livus actus douchebagus.

Read Full Article

Alea Jacta Est?

i personally have no issue with the swastika bans on xbox.

Hehehe, comment of Dulce decorum est, pro patria mori, the soldier's lie, and then having the comic based on that poem from... ummm...
Well, I remember it from my English classes >.>
The government men who take his neighbors, stuffing them into the belly of a waiting jeep, as no one tries to stop them...
Anyway, this was a good one :3

You always act like only Xbox Live is full of douchebags...when on PSN, I found douchebags on Castle Crashers. The last game on earth that I would ever expect to find douchebags on. And let's not act like PC is perfect, either.

Douchebags are everywhere!

I personally have no problem with swastika avatars.

Good comic. Nice Goatsee emblem.

However Xbox Live is the only service that's famous for its douchebag quotient.

I actually might make it my emblem, when I get Black Ops and get tired of several other emblems I like. :P

anonymity breeds douches because they don't have to be face to face to insult you. also look at drivers on the roads cutting people off, they do it because they will likely never see you again and there for don't care.

good issue, I laughed quite loudly and im pretty sure the rest of my house thinks I've gone completely mad

What he says is true. However less people have headsets on the PS3. So you get less verbal diarrhea spewing into your ear.

Kinda ironic, the original quote is from a propaganda piece for the proto fascist state of Augustinian Rome.

If you really think is sweat to die for xbox live douchebags, I understand the that US army is looking for people to go and fight in Afghanistan.

The whole strip drips with a delicious sarcasm sauce. I know it doesn't register on some people's pallet, but I thought the reference to "sad troll tears" was a give away.

I say all emblems are ok, or none of them are, ALL OR NOTHING!

FREEDOM OR SLAVERY!

FRRREEEEEEEEEEEEEEDOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOMMMMMMMMMMMM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I found the comic tasteless. And while I know people are going to get on me for being butthurt about whatever they have decided to infer I'm butthurt about, I'm not offended. I still think it was tasteless.

Sounds similar to the Poem 'Not my Business'. I wouldn't care if they banned people using penis, nazi-style swastikas and beastality emblems but I would be pissed if they banned people using the religious-style swastika.

Seriously people. Hands up if you knew this comic was sardonic.

It took me a second to figure out what the final emblem was... good one!

I remember when this comic was actually funny, and not trying to send a message.

This is why I love PC gaming. My Team Fortress 2 server of choice not only allows pornographic and/or offensive sprays, it actively encourages them. Basically, the only thing that they actually care about is a certain word starting with the letter N. Long as you avoid that word, you can spew just about any other form of insanity and be totally kosher.

Ibant unde negant redire quemquam.

Bella, horrida bella, et thybrim sanguine spumante cerno.

The problem is with the swastika, is that the first thing that comes to most people's minds when they see the "crooked cross" is a certain political party.

Something the Microsoft spokesman said when this censorship was announced was something like " There is no easy way to explain the meaning of your emblem." IE, while you may have the swastika as a religious symbol (Buddhism?) or any other symbol (Finnish Airforce icon, I think), there is no way to explain to everyone who sees it why you have it. For all they know, you have it to show your allegiance to the National Socialist Party.

Thanks guys. Thanks for reminding me of my first internet shock. I'm going to go sit down and cry for a bit.

If you're gunna let people design their own emblems, then LET THEM DESIGN THEIR OWN EMBLEMS!

...what?

Oh, Xbox... yeah I don't have one.

Martin Niemöller's poem, not the most obvious source of comedy, but it works.

The version inscribed on the U.S. Holocaust memorial museum goes:

First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out -
because I was not a Socialist.

Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out -
because I was not a Trade Unionist.

Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out -
because I was not a Jew.

Then they came for me - and there was no one left to speak for me.

Well I don't see how it would be tastefull. It's a digital image. Stop licking your screen.

OT: I loved this one, it's going on my wall in my room.

Nice comic.

If you got banned it was probably me reporting you´re ass.

They should implement Blops report system in every game forth. Take that little douches! KAPAW!

It's the Xbox Live people banning, not Treyarch, so I don't think they care if you use the emblem, However you don't get your online subscription from them. Altough I find it hilarious that I can have a donkey grabbing a guys pickle but I can't name a class 'Assault' due to profanity.

Being banned from CoD: BO should be considered an divine intervention. Go 'waste' your gaming time on some better titles, seriously.

oh i had to do this poem for my English gcse.
ot very good comic and where will it end

You have been successfully trolled by some webcomic authors. Take a bow.

Oh god, that poem is invading everywhere! I gave it in for history homework to find a Holocaust poem, then the teacher was going to read it out anyway, and now you mentioned it!

Comparing XBL bans to the holocaust is absurd and tasteless.

Regarding the issue, you can't have offensive language in your gamertag without a ban. What the fuck did you think would happen? Idiots.

I'm soooooo glad they are banning emblems with swastikas and beastiality and ect. I shouldn't be forced to see that bs when I'm playing a game and having fun. Oh, and to those who are complaigning about it: if you want to play thier game you have to play by thier rules. go be a total flamewad elsewhere.
