HAPPY VALENTINES DAY BABE
Love Garry ^^
Valentines Day, eh? Amazing how time passes, I can recall first installing Command and Conquer Generals in March of last year, and it only seems like yesterday. Probably because the game was so crap I have waking nightmares about it, every damned day.
So why am I updating? Dunno, why shouldn’t I be? Why should Lothar always hog the spotlight? Probably because he isn’t as lazy as me and tends to actually update. So because of this, and if you live under a rock and somehow missed it, you should give Lothar some belated birthday fanmail. Go on, you know you want to. I’d have sent him something birthday-related, but lacking any finances as I blew the pitiful disposable income I have on Sonic Heroes.
Which, despite my misgivings, is a pretty good game. If you overlook the fact the game has a million ways to die, and Team Sonic and Team Rose have the worst voice acting known to man.
But it has Omega, the most bad-ass droid in the history of the games. So bad-ass is Omega, I wrote a fic about him. I know I can’t write for crap, but take a look. I’m quite happy with how it turned out.
Finally having waded through this crap, you can seek out the amazing Valentines Day wallpaper in 800 x 600 and 1024 x 768. Virus has really outdone himself with this wallpaper, and I sincerely hope it becomes as big a hit with you lot as the Annual Gift Day one was.
And that, as they say friends, is that.

I’d type something here but I’m pissed off for various different reasons and cant be bothered. So I’ll just point out that we have some new fanart, and there is one I particulary like from Sycthe of Purgatory fame. Click here to go to our Fan Art page.
k seriously how can you not lvoe Virus’s expression in Panel 4, it’s impossible!
Couple more bits of fan art added to the Fanart page, both done by Runnic, so go check those out.
Edit, posted Thursday: This Fridays comic may be late, as Virus got bogged down with work and may not have it finished in time. Friday’s comic may not appear until Saturday. Why the hell does this happen when I spent £30 to advertise on Theater Hopper and get new readers? Beacuse of Sod’s law thats why! Anyway hopefully we’ll get the comic up for Friday, but here’s a heads up just in case.
Another week, another comic. When I was writing this one it took me a while to come up with, but it’s probabaly one of the more obvious jokes I’ve written. Yeah I can come up with stuff like “Tentacle Deamon Reppelant” easily, yet it takes me about 20 minutes to come up with this? Next I’ll be solving complex mathematical equations while trying to figure out how to flush the toilet.
We’ve got two new bit’s of fan art this week. The first is a belated ChristmasFan Comic by Scott Cameron, great work Scott! (I am now debating turning that into a Back To The Future “GREAT SCOTT!” pun….I think I’ll leave it).
I swear this is the last link. Sonic X premiered in the UK this week, I wrote up my thought in an article about the first epsiode click here to read it. Warning, lot’s of swearing, sarcasm and anger.
That was… just dumb. Redfox, this happened when I put your new button up… And after our conversation on that day, I’m sure you can appreciate the irony ^^;; I was tired, okay?!
Yeah, so, sorry for fecking things up. And thanks for sorting it out, lads.
This is a test of the Exterminatus Now “What the hell is going on?!” Alarm.
Or, y’know, just me trying to fix the page. Whichever.
Update: Aand we’ve got it fixed. Which is nice. Enjoy. ;)
FINALLY! The comic wasnt working right this morning but thanks to Silversword actually knowing what the hell he was doing we manged to get the site working. Thanks Silv!
You know I’d make some smart arsed comment about whats going on in this comic, but it’s funny by itself, hehehe East and his coffee ^^.
Nothing to write about this week as I havent given it any thought, but if you wanna chat about this weeks comic, or ask the EN crew any questions, head over to our FORUMS and join in.
Oh and keeping up the voting, you guys rock. Cya Later.
So I got an email from some guy trying to convince me that Master Chief isnt a Robot, but a man in a “Robot Suit Thingy”. Yeah that’s why I said he was a CYBORG!
In the Halo books we learn that Master Chief is a Spartan 2 soldier, who was taken from his home aged 6 along with 75 other children to be trained for a life of war. During this time he has had metal grafted onto his bones, muscles enhancements using nanobaots and chemicals that allow him to lift near half a tonne, expanded brain capabilities. The MJOLNR(or however its spelt) armour is the last piece of him that makes him what he is in Halo, the sheild, plus the suit again increase his strength again another ten fold. Which allows him to flip over things like the Warthog and Scorpion Tank in the game. The suit also allows him to connect a A.I Construct (Cortana) to his brain essentially.
So, “Mitch” next time you try and correct me, maybe it would help if you actually knew what the FUCK you we’re talking about, instead of lying and saying you know the people at Bungie and trying to convince me you’ve built robots. You also missed the point of the post, well not so much missed it. More like you we’re ten miles away looking in the opposite direction when the point went by.
First up, we’ve finally got some FORUMS over at The Fallout Shelter, home to webcomics such as ROTFW and The Rogues Gallery.
Next, we’re on Top Web Comics now, to see if it’s does anything to attract more readers to the site, if not then meh.
Anyway I said last week I would try to think of something to write about, and well I got nothing, so I’m going to talk about the first thing that comes into my head.
……….damn this is taking longer than I thought. OK I got a topic.
Robot’s, aren’t they just cool? As you may or may not have noticed, in EN Lothar is a cyborg (and if ANYONE says ANYTHING about “Robotocization” I retain the right to make fun of you), this has a lot to do with my affection with robots and things or a robotic nature, one of his inspirations, was the Terminator films, personally one of my favourite movie trioligies, although #3 was subpar, but still enjoyable. Whether it be giant robots with guns the size of a warehouse strapped to it’s arms, Arnie blasting away with a shotgun while having his face melted off, or those little tiny spy robot thingies they have in practically every spy film now. Robots are cool.
I suppose it all started when I first saw “Transformers” when I was a kid. I’m talking about the ORIGIONAL Transformers here, not the crap that’s on TV today, Optimus Prime beating the crap out of Megatron while spouting phrases like “No harm shall come to any one as long as I’m around” or “Buy our toys!”. While Megatron was having his arse handed to him,. Starscream was plotting the best way to take over the Decepticons while thinking of a good excuse when it miserablly failed, while Soundwave was just standing there…emotionless, with a very creepy voice. The cool thing about Trasnformers is that essentially you have 2 toys in one, a robot and whatever the hell it transforms into. You could have Optimus Prime being a robot one second then have him in truck mode running over you sisters My Little Ponies, and that took some work in my house, my sister had THOUSANDS of those little plastic bastards, I had about 7 transformers at the time (I have a few more now), and belive me trying to kill every one of her ponies took a while.
Anyway, but the thing about robots I probably like the most is the fact that whenever you see they do a tnne of property damage. Think about the scenes in Terminator 2 where Arnie and the T-1000 (The liquid metal dude) fight in the mall and then take it outside, see how much damage they cause. And then think about the Mechs in the MechWarrior games, one of the funs things in those was getting an enemy base and stomping on all the soldiers. I mean yeah you’ve got lasers, but your in a 15 tonne mech, and they’re just guys with laser pistols, why waste the ammo? It’s especially fun in MechAssault when they scream.
Moving on from just plain robots we have Cyborgs, which is kinda what Arnie was in the Terminator films. The difference between a robot and a cyborg is basically that robots are all mechanical, cyborgs have “alive” parts, like Lothar in EN, or the “Borg” in the newer Star Trek (Ok yeah Star Trek is kinda boring “I think this space phenomenon is basically a transdimensional whatchamacallit thats has intercepted the parsecticanal, done a dosey do around some gamma radiation thereby taking in Einstein’s theory of E=MC Hammmer *snore*”) Arnie was said to be a cyborg in Terminator, as he had skin ans muscles over his robotic skeleton, but I tend to group the Terminator as a “Robot” for some reason. I dunno why. A more accurate description I think of a cyborg would be Master Chief from Halo, metal skeleton added, increased brain capabilities, muscle enhancements, able to carry around an A.I construct in his head, etc etc. And what did Master Chief do with these abilities? Blew up Halo, which is basically a small PLANET. So yeah, Cyborgs rock.
Ok I’m done now, maybe next time I’ll type something people may be actually interested in.
