I will buy a copy of that game right now.

[then sees gf glaring]
...
You know what? Fuck that.

PunkRex:

MrWake:
What choices are available in the demo?
:-/

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

No, there weren't any choices to be made in the demo.

I'd forgotten how much fun it was to be un-single... :P

i feel there should be a ridiculously large meat cleaver in her other hand

AngelBlackChaos:
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.

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!

Oh trust me, I have plenty of stories already. He teases me, I tease him, with mostly nothing taboo. What's taboo has been given to him in explicit pamphlet with a death glare included as he reads it (joking XD). We usually play similar games, with a few debatable things we disagree upon for their gaming merits.

My gf is laughing her ass off that any girl would be so jealous insecure or confused to mistake a gamers playstyle with his/her real mores or ethics.
I for one wouldn't be with a girl that judged me on a game I play or a path I take in that game but I guess freedom of expression is just a huge passion of mine. To each their own.
Edit: The one exception I could think of would be the little sisters in Bioshock. No way I'd kill one in front of anyone, including a gf.

I immediately noticed the Reptar reference.

pass her the controller.

Huh that was my experiance with Ar Tonelico Qoga.

Except in THAT case it was the whole 'Strip underage girls to cast most powerful magic' and it was in front of family. That was ALMOST as bad as playing Kanji's dungeon infront of people.

Yeah, the Ar Tonelico series goes too far.

Anyway, turnabout is fair play. I would love to see what happens when a male centered Catherine type game comes out.

Very good. Absolutely true too.

I had all of this whilst playing Vampire The Masquerade: Bloodlines. Every woman in that game has colossal tits, a hooker outfit and severe nymphomania. That might be fine if I'm single and 13 years old, but it isn't ideal when around your disapproving partner. I took a third option and went after gay relationships with the male characters. I don't know if that put me in any better a position.

They say the greatest measure of a man is knowing what he would do in a situation where they do not have to face any of the consequences.

There's the fourth option: find someone who isn't so disapproving.

That's funny, I always thought this comic is actually made by a lady.

My girlfriend would disapprove of that too.

You know, if I watched my boyfriend play, I'd probably encourage the more controversial choices.
"Come on, it's more fun! It's a game, who cares? That's the perfect opportunity to do things you can't do in real life! So what, you can go kill people with a sword but not cheat on your character's girlfriend?"

If I was playing though, it's another story. Whenever there are moral choices, I tell myself "I'll pick the evil ones for fun!" but in the end I'm absolutely unable to do so >.>

In other news, here is my capcha for this message:

This. Glad to see someone gets it.

I don't need to worry about that situation. I usually pick the good choices, I feel bad for doing darker deeds. But hey, 8 endings, so I get some more variety.

"It took you 0.00003 seconds longer to select 'No' than it should have. You can think about how to apologize to me while I call my mother."

Maybe it's the glasses, but I think Katherine is sexier than Catherine anyway.

Hah, Funny as hell :P

Now this begs the question...is she saying continue as in say yes so you progress the fucking story or saying continue to test him...

Seriously, if my significant other would get pissed because I cheat on her with a fictional character in a game, I think she might be having some issues.
Because given the chance, I'm going with Aragorn, baby, that you should realise.

I CALL SHENANIGANS.

You are not given that option in the demo. This comic made me want to play that demo because i was expecting to get that option. However, I found out, that was not an option given to me for the duration of the demo.

Don't play this game if you have a girl friend, or better yet, play it while she is gone or at work. Right before she comes back pop in Black Ops or something.

I don't know if that's legit or not, but goddamn that is freakin' hilarious.

Suddenly being a bachelor is looking like a good thing. But to be honest, I'd rather take the real girl to the psychotic blonde Catherine any day of the week. Less chance of me ending up like Michael Keaton's character in Fatal Attraction.

The Rogue Wolf:

I'm with you there, and it's definitely the glasses

I wonder if Catherine is any funner as a girl.

Thing is...if it was your gf playing, and you watching...you could lay odds on which she'd pick.

PFFT that game didn't go far enough. lol.

It did weird out my dad a bit but hell, I need my defense to go up! Take off dem clothes!

Remember there are no wrong choices, just that one causes you to not get laid

Oh that is a good laugh! XD

+1 for being single in this case heh

Am I the only one that is thinking: "He's not "cheating" ON his girlfriend, he's "cheating" WITH his girlfriend."

Yeah, I'm similarly ... mostly ... incapable of being a terrible person. Heck, my "renegade" Shepard in Mass Effect (the first) didn't even shoot anyone in cold blood! Okay, maybe the research assistant.

But the Catherine ending is just SO much better.
