Xbone Week #5

Beginner's guide to absurdist humor.

Yeah, that was pretty funny. Kudos. :)

"I Shall Sceam"? I think you made a typo there.

Funny comic though.

Okay you guys win, that was the best Xbox One joke of all time ever. Except maybe for the system itself

That comic pause. You sirs are marvelous!

I'm gonna miss having a Critical Miss comic everyday...

I have expectations now, you guys better deliver.

DTWolfwood:
That comic pause. You sirs are marvelous!

Yeah, basically. Couldn't stop laughing.

This is so last week. We've gone passed joking about Microsoft and have gone straight to "OH MY GOD WHYYYYYY? STOP TALKING!"

Hey man, did you hear that ridiculous joke?

Which one?

The Xbox one.

OT: for the $700 price tag for preorder, I think that'll be the joke.

That is a good joke. I love the way they pause before laughing.

Very nice reference to Demon Seed - saw this on HBO at much too young an age. I've been interested in computers ever since, though.

Daaaaannnng....I haven't thought about Demon Seed in ages. That movie was jacked up.

I'm actually still waiting for people to compare the Xbone to the N-Gage.
Both are a media device and a gaming device frankensteined together into a complete failure.

EDIT: Removed the joke on a spelling error in the comic.

I think this is my favorite comic yet this week. Something about the last two panels just really drives it home.

As with so many of your amazing, and dashingly handsome, comics; I love the facial expressions

It's not that b....*stops to reflect and realises joke is correct*
Yeah.

Brilliant comic! I almost choked on my coffee.

No shame in admitting... i don't' get it.

DTWolfwood:

Yeah that is what made it so clever. This was my favorite comic yet.

You don't get The joke from the comic? Or the "demon seed" refrence?

Or you don't get why anyone would want an xbox one? *ba-dum-tshh* I'm here all week folks, don't forget to tip your waitress

MrWunderful:
You don't get The joke from the comic? Or the "demon seed" refrence?

Well... either but I don't' really care about the reference. The joke is puzzling me.

It's funny because it's true.

You're either crying with laughter or just plain crying.

The joke is that the idea of buying a 360 is so absurd that it caused them to burst out laughing.

The none Demon Seed (I don't get that one either) joke is that the Xbone (Xbox One) is seen as so universally terrible that no one in their right mind would want to pay to have one. So when Erin says: "You know the New Xbox? I'm going to BUY one." she was using deadpan sarcasm as buying a Xbone is highly unlikely for her. It'd be like a Vegan saying they could eat a horse or really wants some bacon.

Well now I feel silly that it was that simple. But I guess I was trying to think to hard about it. Well, thanks for explaining ti at least.

Don't worry, you won't be the only one not getting it.

If you know what I mean.

Thought the punch-line/word was one, and not buy, but both work.

Great work this week. I'm sure that by the time E3 is around, we'll have another slew of jabs to make.

Demon Seed is too obscure a reference? That's unfortunate. I will now be hosting a Demon Seed showing at my place, honey lager and food provided. I will not be responsible for hauling your corpse off my property though, so do have a loved one on stand by in case you die of FRIIIIGHT!

That joke was absolutely onederfull!

AlwaysPractical:

OT: for the $700 price tag for preorder, I think that'll be the joke.

It'll be a joke on amazon though because the pricetag is only a wild guess from their side. Since they match the lowest price they reach until release they more often than not guess way above the actual pricetag. Though the joke would be really funny if this happens to be the lowest price.

The Xbox one.

Its only funny because you don't understand why they put a 700 dollar price tag on it.

Not a problem. When it comes to comedy, try not to be too logical :P

Its only funny because you don't understand why they put a 700 dollar price tag on it.

Because they intentionally set the price high because the tech junkies will still buy them.

No. Because they don't know the price, so they set it intentionally high, and then refund the money when they find out a hard pricetag.

Its the same reason the games are 100 instead of the standard 60.

We should send this comic to MS. They'll probably use it to advertise the Xbone ;)
