Nintendo causes Paresthesia

Going to a school like Full Sail, you tend to encounter a lot of people who are into video games. Typically, I don't get drawn into too many virtual adventures... I dipped my hat in World of Warcraft for a couple of months back in college round 1, but somehow managed to evade it's deadly vise-like grip. I enjoy Guitar Hero type games quite a bit as well, but let's face it. Playing guitar, virtual or otherwise, is just cool.

One thing that has really managed to addict me is the Nintendo DS. That little portable system is simply amazing - from it's WiFi capabilities that let me throw down in some Mario Kart with Mueller and Ross from across the country to it's simple and handy design that lets me start and stop play with a simple flip of the lid. I find myself carrying it around just about everywhere, and playing it in places and situations when I probably shouldn't.

One of these days it's going to get me in a bad situation.

Nice comic. It may miss your target audience, but I can relate.

Also, that stupid word I have to type in to post comments is "flaze." This is an awesome new word that is some combination of a flame and a blaze. I mean picture a flaming blaze, and to top it off add ninjas and a sweet guitar solo. And then BOOM! an explosion and the ninja turns into a bunch of smaller ninjas that can now rejoin to form a super ninja, because they fused with the guitar parts.

Personally I think that my target audience wants to see me sitting on a toilet. Maybe I'm wrong.

Regardless, thanks for the support Ross.

Is it just me or do your knees always look like a butt?

I hate when body parts fall asleep! This happens to me all the time. The worst is when I wake up in the middle of the night on top of my arms and I can't feel any part of my arms. Turns out it's extremely hard to flip onto your back without arms and then regaining arms is painful.

I wanted to find a video of someone with some type of limb that was asleep but instead I found this video. Don't you wish you had nice friends like that?

Hey and thanks for getting your comic out today for your adoring public to view!

i have no idea how you escaped the world of warcraft addition. you could've been the next leroy jenkins.

and is your shading a lil off on your legs? i think it's darker towards the feet and lighter upwards. i have no idea why i noticed that, i just did. and let's leave it at that.

Nice catch there Johnny. It's cuz the blood is getting cut off from me leaning on them while playing DS.

I think in the literary world they call it "foreshadowing".
