In Response To: Press 'X' to send flowers. (CARDO 8 ATL)

: I don't know how to post images because I'm computer-illiterate apparently.
: Anywho... this comic just might make your day.


: Pearls is a great comic all of the time, btw

I can sympathise...

I remember my first game of Age of Empires. Jol asked me if I wanted a game and I asked him what it was. he said it's a game where you build stuff and advance your civilization through various ages.

I said OK and we started a game. I had (four?) villagers and a town center. Jol explained how I could gather food and wood to make more villagers and plant fields. I thought it was cool.

The artwork was really neat, the lumber camps and mines looked nice: I had a nice horsey that Jo; said I could use to scout stuff. So I made it circle around my village so I could see where the trees, stone and gold where. I then let it graze near my town center because it looked cute and horsey.

Jol's scout paid me a visit now and then - it would canter past and it looked really pretty. His horsey looked nicer than mine so i asked Jol how he got such a nice horsey. He explained that you advance to better ages and that upgrades your horsey.

Then one time jol's horse stopped next so some of my villagers AND THEN STARTED ATTACKING THEM. I was shocked and asked Jol to tell his horsey to stop attacking my villagers (some of them where women and hadn't done anything to deserve that). Jol pulled it away and I thought nothing more of it, except for asking him why it did that - Jol said that it was just an accident and that he had it on the wrong setting. Uuuhh... OK.

Then, about half an hour later, these big slingshot things arrived and started destroying my buildings. They were really pretty and made a cool sound and had a neat animation. Then he had these cool heavy horses that killed my villagers with swords.

I was pretty shocked. I asked Jol why he was doing this and he said it was the point of the game. I had been deceived.

So, as I say, I can sympathize.
