Danganronpa 4-koma comics translated ⊟
I love 4-koma comics for games, like the Hometown Story series Natsume has posted, or these strips from 望月和巨. We usually don’t see them translated (don’t forget to read them right to left!), but Claus is posting these Danganronpa comics on his Tumblr with English text. They’re great if you want to have more time with these characters without having to play through the School Mode.
Rumor: Get Pokemon XY free when you register a 3DS and game with Club Nintendo next month ⊟
No need to murder your parents, kids — despite the promises of the disembodied fish in this comic from Jeremy Kaye (Up and Out / Patreon). It looks like Club Nintendo US has a fun promotion coming up, according to a convincing Toys R Us advertisement posted at Go Nintendo.
The way the purported promotion works, you can get a free digital copy of Pokemon X or Y when you register a 3DS/2DS/XL on Club Nintendo some time in March along with one of six first-party games:
- Animal Crossing: New Leaf
- Yoshi’s New Island
- Lego City: Undercover
- Super Mario 3D Land
- Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D
- Mario Kart 7
Yay, so all you moms and dads out there can sleep easy… For now.
Comic Studio turns your 3DS into a… comic studio ⊟
Dang! This 3DS drawing app is nuts! Comic Koubou (Comic Studio, via Siliconera) is an app for the Japanese 3DS that combines touchscreen drawing with built-in panel layout options, text balloons, sound effect and visual effect libraries.
The sample comics shown are super impressive! I mean, technology isn’t everything. You’re still probably going to need to know how to draw – which is what I come up against every time I get excited about, and buy, a DS/3DS art app. This comes out next week on the Japanese eShop for 800 yen.

2,000+ DC characters in Scribblenauts Unmasked
So Warner Bros. and 5th Cell announced this morning that they’re releasing a DC Comics-themed Scribblenauts game — featuring over 2,000 characters from the DC label — to 3DS, Wii U, and PC this fall.
The people you’d expect are in there: Superman, the Flash, 33 versions of Batman, 130 Green Lantern Corps. members, etc. I was really curious about whether anyone from DC’s Vertigo imprint would make it in the game, and I had a whole post here detailing how Scribblenauts Unmasked would handle those peeps, but I deleted it all because I didn’t want to get anyone in trouble! :oP
So, uh, enjoy this trailer after the break instead:
Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity 4Koma
If these are your first 4komas, remember to read these from right to left! I wish more people would translated these game-themed 4komas, as they’re always great to share here. This particular pair originally appeared at Pokesho (I found them translated at The Mystery Dungeoner).
Game Boy and Fox
Two comics about the old handheld brick for your morning, the top one from Lamar Abrams and the other from Kyle Fewell. What a wonderful time we live in, when we can just wake up and have a couple Game Boy comics waiting for us.

"Mr McCloud’s Son" by Andrew ‘Angimoto’ Douglas
Pokébutts, a mini-comic by Lindsey Morris. The twelve-page book features full-color “drawings of pokémans with big booties!”
The book costs $5 in its standard edition, or $8 customized with your choice of hand-drawn pokébutt. I’m sure I have $8 lying around here somewhere. Now I just have to browse Bulbapedia to figure out which Pokémon’s butt is a mystery I need solved.
Buy: Pokemon Black/White Version 2, Pokemon Conquest

Two important things about the game!:
- This Saturday is Kid Icarus: Uprising Multiplayer Battle Day around the world. Still deciding if I want to let people destroy me in person.
- For those of you who traded Friend Codes with us in that secret thread, there will be a Garfield & Friends clan meeting this afternoon. We’ll post the meet-up time on our Twitter account soon.
Half a year ago, I would never have predicted that I would still be posting this much about Kid Icarus: Uprising.

"Simple" by Maré Odomo, available as an 8x8-inch print from the fine folks at Nope Clothing. I’m well aware that we post an inordinate amount of Maré art here, but I don’t care — if I could, I’d publish a piece from him every day.
"This is a comic about being a kid, and about how we treat Pokémon/animals. It’s about making fan art," he explains. Read his full post on the piece here please.
"Take Care And Tempt Not The Fates", a Dragon Warrior animated comic by Zac Gorman (click for larger image).
How many times have I explored too far off course, only to stumble upon enemies my under-leveled character had no business making eye contact with, much less crossing swords with? It’s happened to me in so many Dragon Quests, Final Fantasies, and likely a dozen other RPGs.
Even in Guadia Quest, there were a couple of moments when I accidentally ran into GameGuadias unprepared, and had my entire party’s faces rocked off.

Wii U tantrum scene by Joseph Joestar (click for a larger image). Considering how expensive the controller will likely be, you won’t want to take out your gaming frustrations on the WiiPad. Maybe just find a rolled up pair of socks or something to fling at the wall. Or scream into a pillow. These are much cheaper alternatives.
Because we’re doomed to hear awful, awful Wii U puns for the next couple of years, let’s just get them out of our system right now. So, Wii U? More like:
- Pii U
- Wii U T
- Wii Ew
- Wiiuwiiuwii Wiiuwiiuwii Wiiuwiiuwii
- Wii U No Make Real Console?
Amirite? No. I never am.
