Disingenuous Assertions

Read Full Article

I... fail to get that one >.>
I guess I'm just in daft mode after walking the dog.

Also, I'd love to see some of the submissions you've had. Hell, I might actually be smart enough to understand some of them.

Oh man, haven't laughed that hard in ages. Also if there is no part 3 to "disingenuous assertions" I'm gonna be mighty disappointed, I've got a track record to maintain.

I think Erin is implying Chobot isnt a real journalist, so Shep isnt going to punch her.

Anyway good strip and seeing the submissions would be pretty cool.

Bazinga! Nice one.

I'd love to see the guest submissions, the stowaways story arc has been one of my favorites, so I'm curious to see what people did with it.

I have to agree, I never quite get why people get up in arms every time there's a ME3 update...or any time a game developer decides that they want their female character to actualy be pleasent to look at.

Because it's Bioware, and it's EA, and it's evil, and the downfall of gaming, and they are "hidin' in yo' computerz, snatchin' yo info up", and TINFOIL HAT!

Ahh. Now I get it. Damn I'm slow today :D

...I'm surprised and pleased that there is no fanboy gushing about the prospect of Tali and her chicken legs in a one-piece swimsuit. Well done everybody. Oh just checked the comic again, now I'm disappointed that Tali is drawn with human legs.

figday:
Ahh. Now I get it. Damn I'm slow today :D

If it makes you feel any better, I didn't get it, either, so I'll take a slow to go, as well. But then again, I WAS up at 5am playing the ME3 demo! I'll roll with that as my excuse. XD

That's out? Shit, I'll be right back.

...and then I realized it's on Origin. Never mind.

I haven't been reacting so strongly to Mass Effect news so far, but that part really is a deal breaker. Though who knows, if ME3 ends up being good, I'll probably suck it up and buy it on Origin, so whatever.

OT: Good comic. I like the idea of Tali (and the rest of Shep's crew) just shopping normally, it's amusing to me. To say nothing of the actual content, which was also quite good.

:P To me the obsession with Tali is as hard to understand as why many apparently get off on seeing Rei from Evangelion chopped into pieces and stuffed into suitcases. Am I curious about what she looks like behind the mask? Sure, I think everyone is. But apparently the simple fact that you can link suits and give her a staff infection *drum rimshot* in ME2 has all the fanboys "pitching tents".

Why Is Tali looking at Swimsuits she can't wear?

I as well didn't get it at first, I guess that's cuz I have no idea who that person is.
Still, I'd love to see the submissions!

kuyo:

You've never been shopping with a woman before, have you? ;)

I would very much like to see the submissions!

Looking at that "making an appearance" link, it became a lot clearer on why the camera angles are constantly focused on asses.

I really don't have too much of a problem with our quasi-journalist stowaway. The Normandy's a big ship, and you have a team half the size of your ME2 crew, with the DLC members, of course. If you don't like her, just don't go to the lonely part of the ship she's on.

Joker: "But that doesn't change anything! She's still watching... like that creepy kid who sits behind you in comp sci, and just want to punch him... but he's special and sets fires or something..."

Shepard: "Your problem, not mine."

Yeah,I'm with Carter on this. People really have really blown Chobot's presence way out of proportion.

I don't care about her being in the game, even less do I care about that "conflict of interest". She's just a reporter on the Normandy, so I don't have to talk to her the whole time or take her to missions. She might even be a decent character. I haven't heard any dialog from her, so I have no idea how she is.
Even if she is annoying, I see it in a positive way, we'll probably get to punch her, so I'd be fine with that.

I just couldn't stop laughing at "Disingenuous assertions! BLARGH!"

ZING!

Imagining Tali saying "DISINGENUOUS ASSERTIONS BLARGH!" made me made laugh hardrer than the actual punchline. Oh Tali, what would we do without you...

And YES! I MUST SEE ALL THE SUBMISSIONS. ALL OF THEM.

I reserve judgement. I mean, just because the character LOOKS like a melted Snooki and is voiced by a...whatever you want to call Chobot (I prefer "glorified booth babe"), that doesn't mean the character is horrible and unlikeable. Granted I'm kind of banking on her being unlikeable and cribbing renegade points off her by treating her like crap, but still.

Also, Tali shopping for swimsuits is hilarious, however I must ask you to please stop feeding the fanartists and fanfic writers material.

Yeah, really. More characters are fun.

And some of use have PLENTY of room on the Normandy.

*moment of silence for all the lost team members* :(

I assumed, with the prior mention of fellatio that this was an indication that knocking her teeth out would improve her "service."

If she turns out to be a romance option Shep might just punch her teeth out anyway.

I imagine there is very little you don't see.

I'm getting the 360 Kinect edition, so at least the R(EA)per invasion will not get on my computer. I'm with you on hating Origin, but this is a case of EA having me by the Citadel. Bioware is the ONE company I will buy games from without waiting on reviews. So while I would normally boycott EA games on principle, I'm not even going to pretend I have that kind of leverage here.

I will say, the Kinect integration REALLY impressed me. I'm used to shouting at the Netflix app at the top of my voice for it to pause... I was on my couch this morning talking with my inside voice in the middle of a firefight, and everything I said was being picked up. It even let me add "Muahahahah!" to the renegade response options during convos without a blip.

March 6th, WHERE ARE YOU!?!?

I assumed the reference to her fellating a PSP served to show the sort of "journalist" she is.

The text under the strip kinda supports that:

"Chobot is in the business of game previews - I.E: standing in front of a screen showing game footage, occasionally interjecting with some guff about how awesome it all is/was/or is going to be, ohmygosh - these features aren't exactly Frost/Nixon to begin with. "I'm Commander Shepard and this is my favorite game on the citadel," and all that.""

Although the idea of people being okay with having their teeth punched out so they could give better oral sex is kinda funny.

DVS BSTrD:

"Any new scoops, my little qummy bear?"

You know, with Shep being a captain and running a spaceship, s/he could totally go further than kick her out of bed.

"Jettison the cargo!"

Whooosh!

"Nobody can out-suck space."

Ilikemilkshake:

I'm not sure she'd be okay with it, just that she'd be "okay." That's more what the strip would have us believe anyway.

At first I was all like 'wut?', but then I got it and was all like ZING.

It's either saying that Chobot isn't a real journalist so Shepard won't punch her, or that her lack of teeth will improve her fellating of handhelds.
Not sure which one though, as it can be read either way.

When in doubt, assume sexual innuendo.

Soooooo can you punch her in the face?

Probably not huh?

PS: and what is with this 'disingenuous assertion' bizness

Wow, I didn't actually get that joke until I read these comments. I officially fail.

I don't quite understand the whole thing with Jessica Chobot, I mean is she really that attractive? I guess I am being picky here but her voice annoys me and her face is just too big... and I'm not even talking about the ME3 render.
