Stupid, ain’t it?
And again, thanks for the link Something Awful even though as Virus said yesterday, you really had to scrape the bottom of the barrel to make us look bad. In fact I think I’ll copy and past his post from yesterday.
“We’d like to thank SomethingAwful.com for linking to Exterminatus Now as their ‘Awful Link of the Day’. Thanks guys!
And if you’re coming in from Something Awful: welcome. You may be wondering why the art in the above comic is different to that seen in SA’s example. Well that was actually a guest comic provided by a good friend of ours. Whoever composed that ALOD obviously went out of their way to choose the most atypical Exterminatus Now scene they could possibly find! FYI: We don’t do relationships, we don’t do furry bedroom scenes. As a rule. The only reason SA chose to highlight that panel was to imply that it was a typical EN scene, and to try and mark us as furry pervert losers. Which of course the infamously furryphobic section of SomethingAwful’s audience would latch on to with great enthusiasm.
So on one level it annoys me somewhat that they deliberately misled their readers about EN’s content by drawing attention to a one-off scene like that. On the other hand, it pleases me that they had to mislead in order to make their weak insults against us. It does rather suggest they were scraping the barrel just a bit.
Of course all they really had to do was say ‘zomg furry!!1′ and a good chunk of SA’s audience would’ve knee-jerk responded ‘zomg they liek 2 fsck dogs!?!?1′ anyway.
In short, we believe in the maxim of ‘no such thing as bad publicity’. So SA-goers, feel free to take a glance at our archive. Ya never know, you might enjoy it (in a nerdy sort of way). – Virus
Couldn’t have said it better myself mate.
