New Era Twins

Everyone has an opinion.

I am now imagining a sitcom where classic video game protagonists live alongside their reinvented current generation versions.

Shenanigans will most certainly ensue.

Poor Erin. Those are fights I wouldn't want to be in the middle of.

Can't we all just, get along?

I want to see the new Sam Fisher piss himself in abject terror when his old self so much as asks for him to pass the remote in Michael Ironside's awesomely terrifying voice.

There was a comic about that, although I can't find it anymore. Basically, the gist of it is that the new Lara and Dante hook up while old drunk Lara whines to old drunk Dante about how terrible it is.

If those Raiden's start fighting it's gong to make a mess.

Am I being slow? I didn't really get the joke this time. All I saw was a bunch of character who've been reinvented or rebooted, except all they're doing is standing around.

New Era Dante doesn't look NEARLY smug enough.

I still don't get it.

"These characters have been rebooted!" was the joke?

People meeting their rebooted selves...and? I feel like we got build up with no punchline.

And is it me or is the new Lara going through a bit of A-cup angst?

Meh, not the finest strip in any shape or form but nicely drawn I guess.

You mean like the TMNT movie with the new turtles meeting the 80's cartoon turtles? I can only hope the VG sitcom could be as good.

I like the visual implication that both Dantes would get along quite nice.

I'm betting they would. When it comes down to it, they both respect skill in combat.

Not all webcomic pages have to have a joke. Sometimes it's hard to come up with humor. Others it's the authors choice to simply make a comment or pose a hypothetical. In this case: How would each character react to their respective 'rebooted' self.

Aaaah, I see. Without any dialogue or sense of motion, that really didn't come across, since there was no way to tell whether they were reacting to one another or just hanging out as they would on any given day. Thanks for the explain.

Ha, see, it wasn't just me! Take heed, all of you! I AM NOT ALONE!

...I should probably calm down a bit. Go and lie down maybe.

I thought it looked more like new Dante telling a story about how he's a badass, and old Dante's reply is: "is that all?"

captcha: "face the music", relevant to DMC fans, but have we given up on the new Tomb Raider yet? I know Raiden fans have nothing to worry about.

And others have been political commentary that have sparked huge debates on the forums. I didn't find this one to be overly funny but rather a remark on the HD remake/reboot trend that is now prevalent in video games now. It's like we've run out of good ideas so we keep re-inventing the old.

How awkward. I'd hate to be caught in the middle of that.

I saw it more as new Dante being excessively serious (and edgy?) about something, and old Dante being like "Dude, just chill out and eat some pizza."
But that's just me. No idea what Cory had in mind.

If you watch closly to between Old Raiden's legs, you can actually see the line of his vagina.

Personally, I always found it hilarious how DMC fans ignore DMC 1, DMC 2, and DMC 4, existed and use DMC 3 as proof that Dante was always cool..... yeah... -_-

THE best Dante from Devil May Cry, was from the animated series by far. DMC3 dante is a douche bag compared to him.

So where's Old 47 and New "Hitman" ?
They look surprisingly different (for tall bald blue-eyed albinos anyway).

Amen,these fights are getting sickening.

Lara I recognized...not that there are many female characters out there besides her and Samus, but Samus...Metroid other M was wrong, just wrong.

I suspected the guys in the background were "Dante", who I've never played. The red coat and old Zero Punctuation clued me in: "If you have trouble telling them apart remember that "X" is a pussy and "Y" is more of a cunt."

Didn't recognize the ninjas in the center. Not Snake Eyes from GI Joe (don't ask)...so who was it?

Anyway...my first reaction was to wonder if Erin's hallucinations were overpowering her again. The 2 Lara's clued me in but not recognizing most of the characters nipped any zing for me. But that's my bad because I play mighty Hidden Objects games more than anything else, and I don't even own a console, so I'm don't play the "Hot and In Games" except on rare occasions...very rare occasions...

I think the idea is that it's awkward they have been replaced...

I'd be jealous of new Lara's round boobs if I was old TR1 pointy polygon Lara too...

It's weird actually. Instead of moving forward, we move sideways through all the different parrallel worlds, where everything is the same but different, and Spock has a beard.

Aahhh I love your drawing style, Cory. You're the best :)

I don't think the gag was very well presented. I imagine a better joke could be made out of how the older characters act like fussy parents to their remakes, whilst the remakes act like teenagers who are embarrassed to be around their parents.

Also, no old and new sonic?

Yeah, I guess. I think I just misunderstood - I went into this expecting a joke, so after scanning the panel a few times and not spotting the funny part I wondered what I was missing.

Moonlight Butterfly:

I'd think she'd have preferred the pointy ones. If all else fails and she runs out of ammo, she could at least try to stab people with them.

Raiden. Not the lightning god from Mortal Kombat, the cyborg ninja from Metal Gear Solid 2 & MGS: Revengeance (seriously).

I'm really hoping this is the start of a story arch, the idea is really funny and I'd love to see what could be done with it.

except for raiden the reboots aren't too bad looking
