i don't think yahtzee would go THAT far over a copy of half life touched by gabe newell.

i know i wouldn't (unless to make PC elitists jealous)

but i was going to say... who's shanks?

Awesome comic :D I didst laugh...

Doomsday Arcade was so awesome...
And so are you, Michael. Happy Birthday!

HankMan:
I do not think I've seen THAT much awesome in a single comic since they stopped printing Calvin and Hobbes

It was the other Shanks, silly!

This one!

And Doomsday Arcade is the best thing to happen to anything ever. Why can't they make a new show D:

Ephraim J. Witchwood:
Sooo... who the hell is the guy in the green shirt and the dude that comes down from what I assume is heaven?

Green shirt = Michael Shanks, one of the guys from Doomsday Arcade, who they're wishing happy birthday to

Not from heaven, from Australia = Saxton Hale, CEO of Mann Co., from the TF2 canon

DAM IT GOOGLE! I suck with remembering names,
But hey! It's still a great cake!

Why can't Shanks and Yahtzee fight in my local eb games?
I was laughing so hard
and also Happy Birthday Michael! what are you nineteen?

also note that Shanks does not have any facial hair is that why he looks so beaten? because he does not have magical facial hair?

Is that supposed to be Yahtzee? Isn't he British?

Ahh well.

PS : I don't know why, but I think Alix looks good in that mustache... Don't ask why...

My loacal Game Retailer is just down the street, I wish Shanks and Yahtzee could go down there every Thursday and beat the Ever-Lovin'-Shit out of each other.

It was someone's birthday? I didn't realize it since I was too busy staring at SAXTON HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAALE! Everything about this comic is awesome!

Damn it! I just shaved this morning and now I have to do it all over agin!

OT: Very funny. And Happy birthday Mr. Shanks.

You Will Believe a Shark can Cry!

I still have this T-Shirt

Happy Birthday Shanksy.

I'm pretty sure that the joke is that neither Shanks nor Yahtzee are actually Australian, but are mistakenly assumed to be due to accents etc.

Or it was a cock-up. Either way, good for a giggle!

Wait... was Yahtzee putting Shanks in a headlock? Dammit, why doesnt interesting stuff like that happen where I live...

He's British you know...

even if he was australian, i doubt he'd go nuts over a newell-touched half life 2

Damn straight, If anything the best route for survival is to just get out of his way.

I hereby forget any Name Game-related offenses I suffered in the past. Use it wisely, Scaldaferri.

Happy birthday, you filmographic genius, you.

Such a thing is hardly worth touching. It would reek of donuts and KFC, and still contain the world's 2nd most overrated game.

If you want to see the true rabid animal within me released, attempt to touch my first run copy of FFVII.

Fairly be warned, you may lose limbs.

Well that was an interesting comic. First there was the fight which I thought could be interesting but then Saxton Hale came crashing in and then the whole thing just got really manly. And Alix's mustache was pretty cool. Couldn't recognize Shanks right away, but Happy Birthday anyway!

Also I think that you messed up Hale's chest hair. I believe it's supposed to be in the shape of Australia, the manliest country the world's ever known.

Daystar Clarion:

He's British you know...

Yeah, but he lives in Australia, so he gets in on a technicality.

Well no, plenty of British movie actors live in America. That doesn't make them American.

They're not the ones in question though Saxton was just saying if Alix wanted to fight like an Australian then she used use the stash he didn't offer anyone else one(yet).

OK, normally I don't find this strip particularly funny (least when compared to some of the others on this site), but that flat out killed me.

"It's so warm..."

Holy damn. That's one inspiring comic, giving you a really legit reason to grow a moustache like that!

Huh... well Yahtzee is an obvious guess, but who's the other guy...

...someone hire Lund and Shanks to make a new series right now!

Also, Yahtzee would only fight over a copy of Psychonauts which had been licked several times by Tim Schafer. Nothing less.

I don't know what just happened... but I liked it. Its was like short trip into madness... and moustachioed wonders.

Is that Yahtzee? wtf? I didn't think he would fight over something so trivial.

lol we need another series from Shanks...

lol didn't Yahtzee get invited to Valve? probably touched Newell himself
as in...a handshake or two or more haha

aashell13:
Didn't Michael Shanks play Daniel Jackson on SG-1?
Also, Happy Birthday!

Different Michael Shanks. Daniel Jackson!Michael Shanks is from Canada. Doomsday Arcade Michael Shanks is from Australia.

Well darn. thanks for the tip tho.

Shanks!

You made my day.

z3rostr1fe:
I, uh... Wow... I grew a beard just by reading this!

O_O HOLY HELL!!!! Yahtzee!! Secondly that was so awesome that Alix grew a CURLY MUSTACHE!

Where my CURLEH MUSTACHE AT!?!?

Even with all the oops, this comic is still pure win.

Tankichi:

Seriously, Portal is much more important to fight over!

NOw you know why I grow man hair on my face.

Saxton Hale? This comic is instantly 100x awesome

Daystar Clarion:

He's British you know...

Indeed, as Psycho from Crysis would say "He's British you muppet!"
On the other hand, Happy birthday Mr Shanks! I didn't know you were Australian!

This has so many emotions caused in me that it cancels out and results in a null response from me.
