The "Most Recent OOC Comic" Thread

Here is the thread to generally discuss the comic strip, Captain Gamer: OOC. The comic is better known as a Bob and George fancomic, but I can imagine that OOC as a Bob and George fancomic is a different discussion than OOC as a GamerHang feature.

Kay, so for the Voltorb thing...

Cute, and very well done art and positioning. OCC is probably one of the best sprite comics online because you add all these angles and the likes (or try to, when possible).

Talking pokeballs would come in handy, for baiting pokemon and such...sounds like something EVILE! Like Team Rocket EVILE! XD
Koji_Tsunami

So, Captain, I have a question or two about the comic.
#1: Why is the Voltorb's name "Speedy"?
#2:How did Red teach Speedy to throw his voice?(Which is awesome!)

1) To answer your question, let's take a look at a member of my Silver team...

No. 101 100
Speedy / Electrode

HP 298 / 298
Status / OK
Type / Electric
EXP Points 1000000
Level up 0 to 100

Item Magnet
Move
Thunder 16 / 16
Thunder Wave 32 / 32
Explosion 8 / 8
Rain Dance 8 / 8

ID No. 29189
OT / TIM
Attack 178
Defense 216
Spcl. Atk 235
Spcl. Def 235
Speed 356 <- Reason for name

If you can't tell, it's the Voltorb you get in Olivine City by trading a Krabby, all grown up! But Captain, you ask, isn't that Voltorb's name Volty? My answer is: Yes. I hacked in a different nickname, because I was silly like that all the way back when. No such thing in my Generation III games onward, scout's honor!

2) Either A) he can project his voice with such speed that it can reach a new location and make it seem like the point of origin to the human ear or B) he's the gosh-darned Speedy the Voltorb, that's why! Twisted Evil
Koji_Tsunami

I've heard this one before. let me guess: "If it looks like a duck, walks like a duck, quacks like a duck, and Speedy says it's a chicken, then goshdarnit it's a chicken!", right? Smile
Captain Gamer

Now that's just silly, Koji.
Koji_Tsunami

What I was trying to ask with that statement was: "So, Speedy can throw his voice because he's so awesome?" But, yes I know it was a silly way of asking it. Rolling Eyes
Skybait J

No, Speedy can move so fast, that he switches places with the pokeball in an instant, then switches back in half an instant. So it APPEARS that he's throwing his voice, when actually, he's just moving to dang fast to see XD.
Koji_Tsunami

Yes Kei, Sakura killed you. You are now a ghost. A Digital Reality ghost!( wait, is that possible? What do you think Cap?
Skybait J

If it's part of thier program to come back as ghosts when they died, then why not?

And I sure hope that was a recently empited trash can. Be a tight fit otherwise. Not to mention extra stinky Razz
Konoko

Ah, good old Kei and Sakura, with a more balanced friendship. Truly, a lovely miracle. And god bless us ever- wait, thats for christmas. Awesome. Wonder where the story'll head now...perhaps a final thought, catching up with Gamer, or Czar, or a non-sequitor to something far more relaxed...
Skybait J

First plotlines usually ARE the most relaxed. Look forward to DRAMA! Hopefully more action-drama Razz

After so much "be who you are" stuff, the ultimate point is for her to shut up? In the earlier comics, it was all about getting her not to talk about Street Fighting, but it didn't really come directly out during that speech. Or maybe I just can't remember all of it.

Seems to be more a indirect effect on her. Gamer doesn't really tell her directly, but it's the ultimate goal, right? All the more effective that way.
Koji_Tsunami

It would probably make sense to have a few more one-shot game parodies, and then start on the the next STORY ARC. Smile Exclamation
Konoko

Ok, that last one brought a goofy smile to my face. ^_^ Nice.

Heres hoping for renewed friendship and sitting about on the couch together. =3
*had been wondering back at 109 why Sakura didn't just say something along the lines of 'I know I want to find out stuff about you that isn't obvious'*
Koji_Tsunami

I didn't understand the ending to today's comic...
Konoko

The second to last panel has a near invisible cord attached to the box, the last has a box dropping down onto his head, because he pulled the box closer at the sight of Star Force. Never seen that cunning trap before? =p
Sakuras face on the box makes it clear who set the devastatingly awesome trap, although it probably is, even without it. X3
Koji_Tsunami

Ahh, now I see. But what good will that box do? Seems silly to me. Although I must admit, that trap is truly awesome!
Chocolate Ninja

The box was just the bait. Razz Remember those Wile E. Coyote cartoons where he tries to lure Road Runner out with gunpowder disguised as birdseed?

...well, except Sakura's not out to eat CG, and the trap worked. Razz
Koji_Tsunami

But, why would Captain Gamer fall for a trap that obvious? And by obvious, I mean easily escaped. For that matter, why would Sakura make a trap that Cap could just simply take off of his head? It looks funny, but...
Chocolate Ninja

Hmm, dunno about the second one. As for the first one, maybe it was simply that he didn't expect such a trap from someone like Sakura, or that he actually did expect it but decided to humor her.

...or maybe it's for comedic value and we shouldn't read too much into it. <_<
Konoko

I wouldn't say the trap is that obvious. The thread is pretty hard to see, it plays heavily on something he's definately interested in...he pulled that box towards him without even thinking about it...
As for the latter point...yeah, pretty easy to take it off, but I guess if nothing else, it might slow him down, or also be letting her know he's there now.
Koji_Tsunami

She probably already knows he's there if she set a trap that easy to get out of. I bet she's watching him in the shadows or somthing.
Anomaly

...or, there could be something else in the box that isn't quite so easy to escape from. Or Sakura could be planning to use the momentary distraction, and shoryuken Gamer while he's blinded.
Konoko

Or theres some cunning reason to cover his visor.
That, or its just sillyness, and she'll just talking to him, ignoring the box on his head, until he asks about it.
Koji_Tsunami

Since Sakura's goal is not to harm Cap, I doubt she'll be shoryukein-ing him any time soon.
Anomaly

Booya! New comic!
...and one which shows I was completely dead wrong. Even more dead wrong than a zombie who thinks 2+2 is 81.

Well, that was a nice little speech. Too bad Kirby wasn't around to snap a candy cane this time...
Chocolate Ninja

Haha, the tables are turned! This wins an internet.
Koji_Tsunami

I AM a bit confused about what Sakura was talking about, with the visor, and heroism and making choices. I was lost by the end of the comic.

I think its along the lines that putting on the visor and putting himself right behind that sense of justice and heroism that allows him to make those choices that would normally give him trouble. She's saying that "Game time", before a battle, is how he defines the time to do that, to throw himself into the 'role'.

It was the last two panels that baffled me for a while.
Koji_Tsunami

Sort of like Bruce Wayne is this really nice laid back guy, but Batman is the really tough defender of justice, huh? well, alright, I suppose.

As for the last two panels, I don't think that they need to be there at all.
I guess that Cap picked "C" and just decided to throw in a random punchline to fill up those last two panels.
I don't know, just a guess...
Captain Gamer

I guess with my rate of updating, people are bound to forget non-video game elements.

Take a close look at strip #109 to understand #118's seventh panel. To make sense of the punchline, though, you'll have to wait 'till the next arc update.

What, nobody likes Final Fantasy VII?
Koji_Tsunami

I like FF VII, but I only played FF1-FF3 for NES, so I don't know much about FF VII. Okay, there's Cloud, Sephiroth, and
Spoiler:

Aeris dies.

That's my extent of knowledge of that game.

Edit by Captain Gamer -- General knowledge, but still a spoiler. >.>
Naryu Elda

Just read it (the FF7 comic) and thought it was hilarious. FF7 meets FFX-2. But honestly, who in their right mind would let a Summoner play against an official team of Blitzball players?

I enjoy the Final Fantasy series who doesn't? But with me, I mostly love and enjoy Final Fantasy 2/4.
Skybait J

I've played FFVII...but only the first five minutes. The copy I got promptly freezes after that. =/

The only FF games I've really played extensivly are 9, 10, and Tactics Advanced...I got the gist of the joke though. Probably only moreso because it sounded like when my brothers talk "sports" to thier friends.
Chocolate Ninja

I vaguely got the joke, but only because of "Returners". Razz If it's what I think it is, it's fairly clever.
Konoko

I got Final Fantasy 7 and 8 for Christmas. Last Christmas in fact. Razz
I'd played them before, but never actually owned them. So my mums ebay skills came through. xP
Rolling Eyes It was that or she'd likely end up buying me more cowneck jumpers.

Nice comic though. =3
Anomaly

Oh, I remembered the "something about me that's not obvious" bit, and I quite liked the look on Gamer's face while Sakura was talking, and how he pointed at the visor when she brought it up. Though, I wouldn't expect to be able to understand the punchline without more story... that just doesn't seem to be your style. Razz

I probably don't get the FF7 strip as much as others on the forum, I haven't played X-2. Though, it was funny to watch Barret and Cloud arguing about sports teams when their minds should have been on the job.
Skybait J

I'm calling it! Next comic: REJECTED! In some form or another XD
Koji_Tsunami

Okay... I prefer "DENIAGE" to "REJECTAGE", but that's beside the point.
Who do you think will get denied?
Well, Sakura hangs out with Cap, and helps him, and all that stuff, but then if there's ever a real threat, Cap handles it mostly, and Sakura just sort of... helps.
And then, at the end,I bet they part, leaving Cap looking for some other pointless thing to do, as Sakura continues with her normal life.
Or something like that.
Skybait J

...If that really happens in those game I will admire them even more XD
Koji_Tsunami

They somehow manage to do it in Doctor Who every time there's a new Doctor. Why wouldn't Cap be able to pull it off?

The Answer: Because Sakura doesn't want to leave Cap, and he's not going to regenerate any time soon.
But It would still be cool to see if they really do part eventually.
Skybait J

Um, I meant with the most recent comic. If thrown guys once in a while landed on Red =/
Koji_Tsunami

*Checks BnG* Holy Crap! there's a new filler comic! I hadn't even seen it!

Yes. That would be awesome.
Skybait J

Captain Gamer can change clothes?

And with a power no less?

And whats up with that megaman picture anyway? o.O
Chocolate Ninja

Weapon Change. Very Happy
Koji_Tsunami

I dunno. I guess that "Weapon Change" is the only thing that would cause Mega Man to be there, but I'd think that this particular kind of "Weapon Change" has nothing to do with our favorite Blue Bomber. (I don't mean Aobon, I mean Rock.)

And shouldn't the Game Visor turn into a silver headband or something? Question
Captain Gamer

Who remembers OOC strip #2? Watch this video at about 1:46. I laughed.
Captain Gamer

What the...? That's not the comic that's been up there since October... Confused
Koji_Tsunami

Yay! New comics! This is very good!
