Watch_Dogs: Quis Custodogiet Ipsos Custodoges

 Pages 1 2 NEXT
 

I really like the outfit Erin is wearing. Can she have it more often? Pwease?

Attending Nickleback concerts seems like a legit reason to murder someone to me.

Never made it as a wise man,
Couldn't cut it as a poor man stealing.
Tired of living like a blind man,
Sick of sight without a sense of feeling.

And this is how you remind me...
This is how you remind me
Of why I just got clubbed!

Erin's trenchcoat is boss. :D

WHERE'S THE NEW WGDF?

I thought people generally liked Watch_Dogs.

So he's 27, only makes $17,900 annually, and regularly attends Nickleback concerts? Yeah, I'd punch him just for how financially irresponsible that person is. Then again, Nickleback concerts are probably dirt cheap. :P

Pearce's face in the last panel doesn't make sense.
He'd be cheering her.

Seriously though, he's a real psychopath, even if you try to be a "good guy", most missions involve being a complete asshole.

Andrew Siribohdi:

Seriously? Where have you been this past two weeks? It has been getting a lot of criticism, specially the PC version.

You seem to have skipped over the part where Erin asks him to pull over for a sec and the car smashes into seven other cars before careening off a bridge.

All right. Corey and Grey love Nickelback. Noted.

Okay, this is something I've been wondering for a while now, since I don't really follow music that much:

When did Nickleback become such a big punching bag for the Internet?

Andrew Siribohdi:
I thought people generally liked Watch_Dogs.

I thought it was a mention to the Nickleback bit, not Watch Dogs itself.

Wow. Such violent. Very Erin.

*gets looks*

Sorry...I saw "Doge" at the end of the title and had to do it.

2001.

After all that buildup, no WGDF comic? I'm disappointed and happy at the same time...

So no-one else saw the "Parking meter attendant" part? I think that might have tipped it over the edge.

I think it was around the time Music became such a big punching bag for Nickleback.

Like DNF, it's a big deal as long as it doesn't exist.

Nickleback is one of those bands I don't even hate, I just find the jokes hilarious because they're such a great go-to punchline, kinda like Taco Bell. They're cheaply produced, crammed full of artificial ingredients and consumption just about guarantees you a not-so-healthy dose of diarrhea...

...

... Also, Taco Bell isn't too great either.

Neronium:

And if you don't like it, you can get your nickel back!

...Sorry, had to be done...

I think that is just the "intro" of the joke.
He's ALSO the guy who makes that 17,900 by giving people tickets when they park without paying.
You know, those ever popular guys!

I think Canada exiles its terrible musicians here in revenge for Americans thinking Canada is "America's Hat"

MCerberus:

I would have agreed with you at some point in my life, but Cryptopsy and other bands have made up for a lot of bad music. Seriously, there's something in the water in Canada that makes metal drummers go crazy...

Andrew Siribohdi:

Ah, but you see, Watchdogs is popular. Therefore it is overrated AAA shlock and everyone who bought it is an idiot. If they thought they enjoyed it, they were wrong.

They must not have the agricultural runoff and occasional massive chemical spill that makes the water supply so great in MURICA, drives them insane due to lack of FREEDOM.

And this is why Erin Stout is my hero.

These five words in my head say "ow ow ow my head!"

Something we tend to ignore in our heroes. Hell, I've seen Greg House defined as "Chaotic Good" so many times I sort of want to burn all the D&D books.

I hear Nickelback got their name because if you paid with a dime, you got a nickel back.

And when I say "hear," I mean "made up because it's better than the real story."

marioandsonic:

When did Nickleback become such a big punching bag for the Internet?

When was their first single?

Kenjitsuka:

I think that is just the "intro" of the joke.

It might also be a play on the fact that the data is supposedly strung together randomly.

Well, it is generally well-liked/reviewed, especially on the current-gen consoles, but there are serious problems with the PC release. PC gamers with AMD/Radeon graphics cards are woefully disadvantaged when playing Watch_Dogs.

wow you can basically just replace "watchdogs" with nickleback" and the meanings never change.

*shrugs* Internet hatred is generally tied to mainstream popularity, so it's a compliment in a weird way. I personally quite like Nickelback, although I wouldn't bother seeing them live.

OT: This strip unfortunately made me think of Sophie Lancaster, who was beaten to death in a skate park, apparently just for being a goth (or a "mosher" as her attackers called her when they bragged to their friends about it).

look up Brian Deneke and find further reason to hate Texas.

short version, a few punks get jumped by a bunch of jocks, but hold their own against the larger number, the asshat jock Dustin Camp runs over Brian who dies in his brother's arms, but because it was a punk being killed by a jock in texas, he gets only probation. he got in more trouble for his violations than he actually did for MURDERING SOMEBODY. disgusting.

I think Pierce looks freaked out because he looked up Erin's info while she was beating up that Nickelback fan. But there's no need to beat up people who listen to Nickelback; they're punishing themselves enough already.

<_<

>_>

OK, I like their song, "Rock Star", and the video for it.

I'll wait for Watch Doges.

Yes, there are a couple three videos called Watch Doges but there are no doges in them, they are just play-throughs. That's a cheap lure. I want to see an actual doge parody of Watch Dogs. No, I'm not going to play the game in reality. I just want the parody.

Nickelback tickets are like five cents a pop.

And people still end up wanting their nickel back :P

Darth_Payn:

Erin Stout, age 27, occupation: Video Games Journalist. Talks to video-game characters who aren't really there; sometimes throws consoles at people.

Darth_Payn:

I like "Photograph", but that aside... well, a friend of mine told me how her favorite radio station played three Nickelback songs over each other and they matched up almost perfectly. Chad Kroeger knows his three chords and he's stickin' to 'em.

Jasper van Heycop:

We could have one about NBCDF.

NBC standing for "Nickelback Concert", of course. That'd be fun.

RoonMian:

wat?

And here I was, thinking that people were getting better at getting the jokes...
