joke’s gonna be on him when the heat inside that thing from the fucking furnace weakens the ice and he and all that decadent bullshit tumble into the icewater below

Okay I guessed wrong about his identity but that amazing doofy face in panel five of the second page here is just so wonderful I can’t be mad.
Question with 3 notes
thechosenpumbloom asked: Even better, you can get Tropico 3 in a bundle at Bundle Stars and it includes other games that may or may not be worth playing.
gorgeous yet inscrutable indie time-hopping shoot-em-up Sine Mora is worth that bundle’s price by itself! steam only and not DRM-free as gog tropico is, but a fab deal nonetheless and I am gonna jump on it myself.

if anyone wants to get their brutally exploitative colonialism on in a virtual banana republic, Tropico 3 gold is six bucks on lovely Polish drm-free classic purveyors GOG.com, and for a mere $2.39 you can also pick up One Unit Whole Blood, the definitive edition of the best fps of the DOS era, in which you can explore creepy atmospheric levels homaging lovecraft and horror cinema, stab hatchet-wielding zombies to death with a pitchfork and then kick their heads around like soccer balls, and set cultists and flesh-hungry gargoyles on fire with a lighter and a can of hairspray. great stuff, and I’m not doing referral link shenanigans either I just wanted to recommend you all some games because I care about you. yes, you. you are special to me.
(tropico 3 has some crashing issues if you have dual monitors but they’re solvable pretty easily and Blood runs in a dosbox wrapper and can be clunky in ways both charming (being squished to death by a wooden door) and tedious (swimming is really weird-feeling, particularly trying to exit water onto a ledge, generally cruel difficulty that you will want to set lower than default), so just fyi.)

Wow, actual yellow-skinned asians. Gross, comic.
(Also calling it now from the panel with the dude’s face in shadow that he’s The Googol.)
Question with 8 notes
dannykat asked: Why are Imperial Japanese planes blowing stuff up behind Richie and the Googol? A part of me really hopes there's no explanation for that.
Richie Rich comics have a way of dashing hopes like that.
Question with 4 notes
itsbenedict asked: well Jailbreak has Logorg, but no a Googol is a big ol' number which is a 1 with 100 zeroes after it. (then there's a googolplex which is a one with a googol zeroes after it, and a googleplexplex which is... yeah)
math is amazing
i actually did know that googol and googolplex were numbers but i didn’t know the actual zeroes count thing so thanks, ive learned something today

in other news i am considering doing a live stream deal of the richie rich movie with a chat embed for live commentary by me and assorted pals and even YOU if you have something amusing to say. I got a cheap VPS rental recently with like a terabyte per month bandwidth cap and i’ve had some promising success running a flash video live stream thing off it. stay tuned i guess.

there’s no such thing as a “logoog”, right? there’s nothing called that?
