Hobbes still hasn't tackled anyone...

Looks like that review copy of Black Ops 2 she got is being put to good use now XD

Scrub Cannon? What on earth is that?

These Erin & Hobbes strips are definitely favorites of mine :D

About 20 minutes? I would have believed ten.

Glomping Erin seems like a dangerous idea.

Nile McMorrow:

Maybe it's a cannon that fires...I dunno...soaked sponges?

*Scrub Scrub*

Yeah... didn't Erin once threaten to "Cut a bitch" just for wearing an Octopus hat? 0_o

Black Ops II corrupts absolutely.

EDIT: Correction: XBOX Live corrupts absolutely.

Pfft, everyone knows that plush tigers can't snipe for shit.

lrn top ply noob!!11one

LOL Hobbes needs to tackle someone, I love this though Calvin and Hobbes + video games = awesome

I was going to correct you but you caught yourself :P

I miss calvin and hobbes now... thanks alot guys for opening up old wounds! /cry

Zachary Amaranth:

Hobbes is a tiger, your argument is invalid.

Also, he does not Glomp.

No.

No, No No No No.

See this is the problem I always have with people "Revisiting" classic cartoons. They always feel they have to make it darker. Like having Charlie Brown kill Lucy for pulling the ball away. Or Calvin's parents putting him on anti-psychotics.

The old strips' innocence is what made them good. Well, C&H was also good because of the way Calvin and Hobbes would tackle existential questions, but that's another story.

People using the characters like this is just stupid. It's basically saying "hurr, hurr, Hobbes is Swearing!"

The only time I've seen classic characters used well were those Bacon and Hobbes strips.

These Erin and Hobbes strips come across as the writers just saying "Hey LOOK! We're Using characters from another cartoon! Like Us because you like them! Do you like us yet?"

...then again, that's kind of what Crit Miss has been doing ever since Erin's hallucinations started. hmm...

Let me soothe your wounds. Warning: Good luck leaving this site: www.gocomics.com/calvinandhobbes/2007/01/01

NO! NO! NO! NO! NO! NO! NO! DON'T DO THIS! THIS IS NOT NEEDED!
Look at what Krantos said. He's right. Although I don't mind Erin's video-game hallucinations, I do greatly mind watching my old innocent friend Hobbes turn into the worst stereotype of an XBox Live player.

Don't. Do. This.

Krantos:
No.

No, No No No No.

Agreed wholeheartedly.

This smacks of laziness. The same kind of inane garbage that Waterson has spoken against in regards why he never licensed Calvin and Hobbes anywhere. This, if anything, is validation of his point.

Yeah, tell me about it...

And Black Ops 2 isnt really all that bad yet. I still think we have tell January till it gets broken and most normal people give up on it.

Krantos:
No.

No, No No No No.

Man, nothing brings out the condescension of others more than a slightly unoriginal comic strip, huh? :D

Krantos:

Nooners:

Heh, see, now I found it totally hilarious.

It isn't simply, "Look how funny it is when Hobbs uses naughty language." It's more, "Call of Duty on X-Box live would corrupt even Hobbs."

Anyway, I was surprised to see that Calvin and Hobbs has a borderline religious following.

I guess I need to read Garfield Minus Garfield with new eyes now, and consider that there might be huge fans of Garfield offended to outrage by the corruption of the strip.

This is a dagger straight to the childhood.

Stop doing what you're doing.

Calvin not having an xbox does not surprise me. His father was staunchly against getting cable remember?

Hobbes becoming affected by Xbox live is cute, but wonder if these guys ever come up with a concept and totally think "we're going to burn for this one" in one sense or another.

Zachary Amaranth:

No no. 10 is MOBA timeline.

Krantos:
Snip!

You're problem seems to be that he uses characters from other sources and doesn't try to keep it 100% in spirit. Do you know how spoofs work?

Krantos:
Like having Charlie Brown kill Lucy for pulling the ball away.

But that's hilarious! Charlie taking out his anger on Lucy for always pulling that prank makes sense.

Krantos:
It's basically saying "hurr, hurr, Hobbes is Swearing!"

Nope

Uszi:

That's what it is.

She also uses firearms to deal with spiders.

I dunno. I can't remember ever being called a faggot on Rock Band.

Erin deals with Kratos. I win.

Krantos:

this is nothing like that. It's Hobbes through the filter of Erin's screwed up head. This isn't a Calvin and Hobbes reboot. In fact, when we saw Kratos with Calvin, he was enjoying riding down a hill on a sled with a little boy. Neither the sled nor the boy were being horribly maimed in a quicktime event.

Plus, as was already said:

He's playing on XBL. If MOBAS has XBL, he'd be like that in 2 minutes.

Oh wow, some people have managed to follow Critical Miss for a long time without learning the definition of a parody...

How dare you Grey! Putting out slanderous filth like this! Cartoons are srs bsns dammit!

I thought it was funnier when the online gamer did it.

Nile McMorrow:
Scrub Cannon? What on earth is that?

Probably the RPG/SMAW (Mostly RPG)

I grinded up for Diamond Camo from nothing for Launchers yesterday. So much rage from everyone else.

MrGalactus:

Stop doing what you're doing.

Seconded, with much vigour and sentiment.

It has the Calvin and Hobbes feel to it, but I think that Calvin would be more in line with what's happening in the comic.

Also, totally necroing an old link so I can spread Calvin and Halo.

Nile McMorrow:
Scrub Cannon? What on earth is that?

Well, if Twitter is to be believed, he got the BlOps 2 rage comments from resident spud Miracle of Sound, so for whatever it means, you gotta ask him.

I'll take a wild guess here though and guess it means something along the lines of noob tube ('scrub' from what I can recall meaning from my little brother's screaming, is someone who isn't good at the game, or at least something along those lines).

Krantos:
No.

No, No No No No.

Weve got another in the works that may change your mind, its going to be a mini arc.

I feel the same way with Watterson's work, those fucking window decals of "BADASS" calvin taking a piss have always rubbed me the wrong way. When Grey pitched the idea I was very skeptical and immediately refused, but then we talked over what we could do with the concept and we came up with a pretty good idea. So I hopped on board.

I don't really want to do wrong by Watterson.

Hobbes lasted that long? Huh, guess (imaginary) tigers have a higher level of tolerance and patience for blops than the average player of it does.

Fair enough...

I'll stick around to see where this goes.
