PC Gamer Master Card

I like it; this one reminds me of my early pc gaming years, getting up to 3 new cards a year.

Fappy:
Not sure which is worse... the people who do this with PC parts or the people who need the newest smartphone model every time they come out with a new one.

Why, the people who do both, of course.

A fool and his money and all that...

Even more tragic is that those people rarely know what they bought, how to asseble or properly use it. Maybe I'm just jealous that I don't have money to throw away on new elitistic bullcrap every month.

knight steel:

P.S. I wonder if Grey knows about it and how he feels towards it?

He linked it on twitter once. I think he finds it amusing.

Surpise Motherfucker?

But yeah, this illustrates why I'm kind of glad that I don't own a PC. I'd be far too tempted to buy the shiny new thing as soon as it came out.

At least when that happens with consoles it takes a good few years to happen =P

Well, with your old hardware it isn't surprising that all our stuff seems shiny.

I suggest you get some fire resistance, cause you got burned!

Wonderful, Cory. Plain wonderful.

Calling Dibs on the avatar of the last panel!

And for Grey: That is so bloody true, I don't know what to do about these people ... I want to horribly horribly murder them sometimes. :(

Would you have the twitter post on hand or do I have to go searching for it?

I literally just upgraded my video card so this comic really spoke to my inner PC gamer nerd.

I think (certainly hope) this strip isn't meant to be about all PC gamers but rather about a very specific (and thankfully quite rare) type of PC gamer. Amirte?

What a coincidence. I'm currently coping all my important files(i.e. porn) on my external harddisk because I've bought quite a few new pc components and will assemble them later today or tomorrow.

I'm the polar opposite. I've got an old laptop that can't run The Force Unleashed properly b-cuz (according to my nephew who 'knows everything about that stuff') my computer doesn't even have a graphics card (or something). I figure by the time I upgrade it my system won't be compatible with anything available (or something).

I miss Atari.

Heh. yeah, you couuuuld buy new shit every week... but you know how the saying goes, "a fool and his money are soon parted."

I'll be over in the corner with my 2008 motherboard, and my midrange graphics card from 2010 running everything at high....

You call yourself a salesman, you son of a bitch?

Jesus, working a Blake quote into the strip reference...I've got to say I appreciate it. Do you know what it takes to sell PC components?

I do find myself trying to think of something I can justify buying for my PC sometimes...hmmm, maybe I could use another 16Gb of RAM...

I still use a GTX 470, and for the most part its given me very little issue. The most recent title I own is Borderlands 2, which while showing some strain here and there, holds up pretty well. I imagine that trend won't continue, as games these days always manage to somehow gradually increase in hardware demand with time, regardless of how the game actually looks..

D'oh well.

planning? sales pitch? construction? I don't need this, I bring a game box, look at the requirements and choose a computer that's better than that. I'm a console gamer at heart and I'm not going to waste time getting advice from someone trying to sell me something, just tell me where the things are.

also, my brother got put on a $4000 plan for a $2000 laptop when he already had $2000 in cash, but those crazy salesmen weren't gonna let it be so simple.

I am no longer on twitter so you'd need to search, sorry.

I really think you guys should do some of the manga style faces/humor/backgrounds more often, it was really enjoyable.
Not ALL the time, but they were pretty damn funny.

Grey have you guys been watching a lot of Dragon Half lately?

Cause I think the art style is starting to bleed over into your comics.

Guilty as charged.

Only once, though. I now actually wait a few "card generations" now, so instead of five FPS gains, they're more like fifty.

I still make that face, though. Oh yes.

I'll probably get an Nvidia card for my next rig.

Also, that last panel gave me diabeetus.

My favorite comic yet. Fine job especially on the first frame.

This is completely ridiculous and totally unrealistic; there's absolutely no way Erin would be self-aware enough to know that she was doing it to bolster her sense of self-worth!

Awwwww... SD Erin is so cute.

I never knew being in PC retail meant women barging in and asking for dirty talk. I'm in the wrong line of work.

Guy Jackson:
Harsh.

Yeah... I worry console gamers are - like with the "PC elitist" joke - not going to get the joke and ACTUALLY THINK YOU HAVE TO DO THIS!!

This isn't what PC gaming is about.

This is what having more money than sense is about.

I lost it at 'Talk dirty to me'.

Swing and a miss.

rhizhim:
well, since you seem to be cliche driven why dont you tackle the urge webcomic artist have to draw females expressing emotions in chibi style..

This.
Or make a webcomic commentary on webcomics trying to make commentaries.

McFazzer:
Awww. I was expecting a "There are somethings money can't buy. For everything else there's MasterCard" parody... still good... I guess ;P

You're disappointed that it wasn't predictable enough?

I may not be the smartest guy around, but at least I don't fall for things like that. I usually use my stuff for many years or until it breaks. When I got a new storage card for my compact digicam, the clerk was really surprised to see a working model as ancient as that. But it's good! Strong like a brick and as heavy as one. My current notebook is several years old and I'm fine with that. To be fair, it really helps that I'm into nostalgic and indie games rather than the new, more hardware-intensive stuff. I think there's even an xkcd-comic for that...

This is the reason I stick to consoles.

Aaron Sylvester:

Oh really? We get boners over performance charts without any multi-card SLI entries? Sure is casual in here all of a sudden.

This and the Nipple Tassle Mudcrab are two of my favorite things you've ever done.

Bravo.

Erin:Talk dirty to me
*BLUSH*
Ladies and gentlemen we have just come one step closer to critical miss rule 34 porn
*searches google images*
OMG IT ALREADY EXIST'S
*continue to search*
To bad it's only one rude pic of naked Erin :(

No, there's more, you just aren't searching hard (*snrk, snrk*) enough.

Yes your right I must continue you to pound away *giggle* at all the garbage pics intill I can finally complete my Erin hentai collection by finding all the critical miss porn there is to find!
P.S. I wonder if Grey knows about it and how he feels towards it?

There were four pics last time I checked.

And how does it feel to know that people get turned on by your own creation and character?

Colt47:
I can relate to that feeling of having to buy the newest and shiniest, though to be truthful it turns more into a game of gauging components than a prebuilt computer vs another one. I don't think I'd even consider buying a prebuilt machine unless I was really low on time and didn't have a weekend open to build a new PC.

I'd really like to upgrade to a radeon 7970 from my radeon 6950, though. Skyrim with high rez textures must run at 60 fps damn it!

I know your pain! I'm on a Radeon 6850... I NEED My 7000 SERIES CARD!!! Maybe next year after tax returns.... if I cna get a job...

That said, I LOVE LOVE LOVE Critical Miss' recent art style changes.

Doesn't bother me at all. At first I thought it was a bit weird since Erin is designed to look kind of goof rather than conventionally attractive, but looking at the annals (hah) of Rule 34, I don't think that matters to anyone.
