If it has Samnee art, I'll do it for infinity.

The Bendispeak didn't even bother me, but it's possible the Powers HC I'm currently reading softened me up for it.

The best thing about this issue without question was JJJ's hat.

He reminded me of Roger Sterling from Mad Men.

If you get a PS3, you've sold out to Corporations.

There are no Indie consoles!

The modern video gaming experience transcends corporate/indie labels.

We've all sold out or been sold to corporations, take a look around you.

I feel like I'm about to make the speech from the THUNDER Agents preview..

Does it? Isn't 'Indie Gaming' booming with downloadable stuff like Braid and Angry Birds?

Of course, you have to pay for an X-Box/PS3/Wii/iPhone to get these indie games.

Gaming is just as, if not more, corporate than Marvel/DC.

I don't care about that, I just want more fun for my dollar and shoot some dudes.

But when I want to spend $3 to see Superman punch some dudes (not that he's doing much of that these days, fucking JMS) I'm a corporate whore!

:-D

I called you a supes-loving bastard, I don't know what you're on about with the corporations. You think indie publishers aren't incorporated or something?

Say I get 20 hours out of a $60 video game.

I would have to buy 80 Superman comics to be entertained for the same amount of time.

Comics aren't a super great value anymore. It's a boutique industry pricing itself out of relevancy, obv.

Got you to pick MG over a FI tie-in, did it not? Mission accomplished!

And don't play like you were always planning to pick MG. We all know it crushed your soul not to pick Marvel.
