GrizzlerBorno:
Woah. What the? Is that supposed to be you IRL?

In that case.....your girlfriend has blue hair? Blue hair is a thing? As in it's not a cartoon/anime thing?

The characters in the strip look nothing like either of us. Grey and I both have brown hair. Mine being lighter than his, though blue hair would be kinda cool.

Also, I certainly wasn't staring at him, he tends to always exaggerate to the nth degree. I was quite interested in playing the game myself, and figured I'd watch to see what the game was like.

However, watching him sweat is now much more enjoyable than wanting to play the game.

I would totally choose yes. Then again, so would my girlfriend :P

I suspect that my experience with the game will be the same, except instead of a girlfriend it will be my housemate--who owns the 360--looking over my shoulder, and instead of "Cheat on your girlfriend with Catherine" it will be "Play Catherine."

Actually scrap that; I suspect that my experience with the game will be avoiding all news about it until it is released in Australia.

Well I can honestly say:

I do not get this comic. At all.

But then again, I don't get cheating either. At all.

Well! Guess I'm never playing this game ever. Oh well.

Its always nice to see yours and Grey's commentary on it XD adds some more to the effect of the comic.

If it was my fiance playing it, i would pretend to pressure him, and start to sit closer and closer to him. This counting on my ability to not laugh when I'm teasing him. Which is like, extremely rare.

I would hate to have a girlfriend that self-conscious over imaginary things. My cousin is like that, and I just think she's juvenile.

Wait a minute, there's a demo now? That's my evening sorted (if it's available in the UK)!

EDIT - Answer, no. No is isn't :(

This one is made of gold, thought it would be hard to surpass the ICO HD one but hell, didn't took a week... Fantastic.

Haha, I'll make a point to play this game before I find someone special, myself then. ;)

And people say this game isn't scary.

Imagine having her watching for an entire play-through.

What choices are available in the demo?
:-/

It didn't even have a publisher there until this morning.
Now you guys are going to get it, so that's a hidden bonus!

Thats just brutal, no one should have to play Catherine with their girlfriend/spouse/significant other watching.
Also, hilarious.

Brilliant! Some guy's GF probably would buy this for him for the wrong reason. And it would be hilarious to watch. XD

That must be creepy realizing that someone is watching you and never blinking.

If I tried that, my fiance would quickly point that I have told him more than once that imaginary women are fair game. Then he'd pick all the worst options just to mess with me.

Of course, my fiance would probably be playing through Fallout 3 again before he picked up this game.

Reptar!

Anyway, I never thought about how awkward it would be to play that game next to your significant other. I suddenly have this mental image of the poor soul choosing "Yes", shriveling up like the guy from The Last Crusade, and then the girlfriend going: "He choose... poorly."

Woo, Reptar shirt!
Probably the best use of fewest paneles I've seen in a while.

Your girlfriend was aware that when it said "Cheat on your girlfriend..." it didn't mean her, right?
Also why is he wearing a Reptar T-shirt?

Finally, a way to incorporate girlfriends into gaming.

this is gold.
reminds me that i need a girlfriend....TT___TT

See my post above. Grey likes to exaggerate a lot.

Thanks! I am still trying not to shrivel up my nose and screech like a banshee since people now think I am some sort of self-conscious shrew, however I know if I did there may be a comic about that in the future too.

Personally, I am so obsessive compulsive I would play it through as many times possible to get all the endings. Hell, if this was a game with a female lead, and two males to choose from, I'd "cheat" just to get whatever endings possible to finish the game. Looking forward to the Hakuouki game coming out yey!

I think it's cute when couples can make fun of each other and laugh a lot especially when most take life way too seriously. Let me know if you do tease him and how it turns out!

Forever yours.

Why is it so amusing to view another person in a stressful moment, that if we were in we would be having absolutely no fun at all?
Hmmmm...Maybe people are just sick like that?
:) At any rate a fine comic. Very nice.

I think if my gf was with me while playing it, and it asked me that, She'd ask if I was gay if I didnt cheat. hell, she finds both Catherine's sexy.

Just found out that Catherine has 8 endings, btw.

I guess there are more choices in it than I thought.

I'm totally not gonna play Catherine with my fiance around. He'll...get ideas >>

I dont know... I've yet to play, but I liked the first GF better. The X-box Cover got me some jones'n for librarian. image

HALT, I AM REPTAR, AND CHEATINGS FOR FOOLS!

MrWake:

Im guessing Cheat or Dont cheat. What else could there be... Pretend to smex?

I miss the Rugrats.

Hey, wait. Did she say continue as in "don't let me stop you from choosing yes", or continue as in "go on, press no"?

omg... LOL! that is so me.

I have noticed that whenever milady is around I play games a little bit differently and will make more.. moral choices. :D

Stranger than fiction.

Oh, that's just being mean spirited! The girlfriend, I mean. It's a video game - choices in game do not equal choices in real life.

This girl gamer plans to cheat on Katherine as much as possible. ^^ I loved Rise in Persona 4 - that voice actress is wonderful, and I want to hear as much of her dialog as possible.

Maybe my spouse will loyal when playing the game. I have no idea. :p
