Jump Controlson November 21, 2011 at 12:01 am
I had written this comic ages ago… it was sitting in a folder and I came across this one, it got me thinking about things in video games that annoy me. Like the Giant Spider thing, Poorly planned Jump controls in platformers bug me. For the life of me I can’t recall specific titles, but I KNOW there is one. I’m pretty sure the Kingdom Hearts game on DS was the inspiration for it. I’ve written a couple of others that I think I’ll make into a series of comics. also this is the first comic I’ve made with more than 3 panels. I’m gonna try experimenting with this a lot more. I’ve felt that I’ve been limiting myself by forcing myself to write to 3 panels. At first it was a challenge that I wanted to conquer, but there’s so many idea’s that work better as a 4 panel thing rather than a 3 panel. We’ll see how it works out.
I wanna say I love Eric Drobile… that’s all I want to say… Eric you sexy bastard… Twitter people will know why…
FIRST! and I completely agree, Mario styled ARG
as proud and noble as the first tradition is I hope that’s one thing that passes into history. Originally I had this comic Pixelated but it looked to blurry and such. next time I’ll have to properly build sprites.
Twitter people know why even though we were awesomely horrified 😛
yeah, I love eric and hatefarm.
I worried that I went a little too far, for about 30 minutes. Historically, having that feeling always makes for the best comics. My conscience is pretty silly sometimes.
You guys are my favorite webcomic couple! Keep on rocking the internet. Gabe and Tycho take a close 2nd place though. So don’t lag behind.
And, in classic Arg fashion, the hills in the background are smiling penises and the clouds are butts.
Now, if you’ll excuse me, BUTTS LOL
Oh, and the far-background is made of boobs. Sneaky, sneaky…
I would have never noticed. Damn you, VisceralEcho, damn you…..
lol, I’m all about the subtle….
This reminds me of when my siblings and I would play New Super Mario Bros. Wii
We never made it that far.
that suicide button was stupid…
Those dicks look so happy, but then I would be too if I was around those assclouds and tit mountains.
Also, you totally QWOPed that last panel.
That’s just the Mario jump… not too much QWOP there…
qwoped, mario’d either way I just liked how that last panel turned out.
Or like when you’re unable to jump UNLESS you let go of the run button, yeah.
yeah, that’s just as bad and included in the annoyance.
Especially bad in games like Skyrim where there is a MASSIVE DELAY between you stopping sprinting and being able to jump.
Totally diggin’ how the “BOING” is right under the penis in the last panel…and for that matter how all of your onomatopoeia are next to penises in this one.
Who you calling a automaticpeanut? yeah it’s the subtle touches that I love doing.
hard to believe that one difference can mean a big thing. this 4 panels is gonna take some time for me to get use to in your comics. good luck w/ it man!
lol, I appreciate you putting up with my experiments.
Hey just found your comic and spent some time going back and reading every one of them. Love it! Had me in giggle fits for quite a few of them. Definitely gonna keep on coming back for more.
Also: tits, cock, ass <3
That’s awesome thanks for reading! I hope you continue to enjoy!
Dials; They’re all you need.
So looks like that dick said boing.
Says the guy who draws dicks for a living.
Never said I wasn’t hypocritical…
3 panels, four panels… whatever you need to tell the story. gof orb roke,
use foRty panels.. we will still read you.
Megaman X series comes to mind, but that’s hold-charge-while-pressing-dash-and-a-third-button-to-jump nonsense that was negated by X5 and on having a different charging method (Hold the button to auto-fire release to charge, great system), or by changing the layout to have one of the shoulder buttons be fire or jump.
but yeah, reconfigurable controls are becoming the standard and I must admit I very much prefer it that way…
Also, since your realization of the fact that you draw boobs, butts, and cocks, your art seems unabashed and even more awesome… was trying to be PC a bit instead of over-killing it slowing you down?
yeah I really wish I had my examples at hand when I wrote the blog post, and I know this annoyance is really segregated to a limited number of games that just were designed poorly, I assure you the next “annoyance series” comic will have a lot of examples…
Comics tend to evolve as they go along especially when they are still young. I’m sure after a year or so the comic will finally have it’s own “voice”, I’m just glad everybody’s enjoying it as it grows. Boobs, penises and butts are just funny.
Clouds shapes like asses, and background shaped like dicks…what Mario are YOU playing >.>
And titties for mountains…forgot those
That penis looks a little too happy.
Super Paper Mario for the Wii played with the Wii remote sideways… it is SO awkward..
Worse: When they simply reverse the run and jump buttons.
Jump controls like these ones are just
