Ness looks like she’s having trouble working the tablet with those large plush paws.
I like Kade’s new charm, although I hope it doesn’t replace his old one.
It suits him better in my opinion. Brings out his gaming side more, plus the colours work very well while not drawing too much attention as its grey. Although yes I hope the pokemon one comes back.
The Pokeball will always be the default charm. Originally I had planned for the charms to change with the games they play. I might start moving towards that.
Saw hunter’s badge when playing Bloodborne?
Are you going to update the cast page and add Ness?
I just haven’t gotten around to making a sprite for her yet.
Awww… They are friend now!
They seem to have taken their own spin on the notion of a “co-op game”.
Games tend to have that effect.
It’s nice to see Harvey and Ness are finally getting along
any way to view the comic in a higher resolution? its pretty small
Not yet. I did notice it gets really pixelated on my retina display (or Comic Chameleon). Probably better to get a jump on HD so I’m not playing catch up.
Cut the cord, it (somehow) causes more ****-wrenching waterworks than a sore ****.
As a Brit, this level of censorship comes across as very silly, sailors swear less colourfully than children.
Heck and nethercheeks aren’t usually counted either. =/
“”" Did Harvey and Ness behave for you? “”"
I would say “OUPS” ^^”
But them both are so cute , playing together
Meanwhile, back at the ranch…
At least it’s not a Metroid: Federation Force charm. Hehe.
How did they get that game? Did they steal Kade’s money?
I think they already had it. They’re just going for the completion trophy.
The game was made available for pre-order on the PS4 (which I assume is the system they’re using based on the controller being used) for months before the game was actually released. Once it was almost ready for release, the game was ready for pre-loading, so that’s probably how they got the game… assuming it was downloaded directly onto the system and not bought via disc from a store.
It has to be for the PS4. You can see the blue light in the controller.
I’ve been buying most my games on PS4 or Wii U lately. XBox One and I aren’t on speaking terms since it had to be repaired twice in the first year and the second time it came back from “Texas” set to Spanish. >_<
They must have thought that “Tim” was a Hispanic name. Join me, mi hermano!
Good thing the PS4 comes with a choose language choice in the settings. Thank you multi-linguistic electronics.
What a world they live in where Iguanas can drive.
I also find it amusing how Nicole has the ability to talk without opening her mouth.
They lives in a world where iguanas needs to know to drive ^^
Batghost and Robness
I like how Ness’s eyes turned gray to show that he or she, (I don’t really know the gender) has calmed down.
Ness is female; Nicole used a feminine pronoun when talking about Ness’s teeth (“Ness is a plush toy! Her teeth are made of felt!”).
Ness is short for Nessie, as in Loch Ness Monster. A name Nicole gave the toy when she was young. I should update the cast page with this kind of stuff…
I had to go a week and a half without internet cause of incidents and I lost track of some details.
Oddly enough my brother and I did the exact same thing as Harvy and Ness.
I just found this comic. You did a great job on it. Though I’m hoping that he keeps the pokeball charm, the Starfox one is interesting too. I haven’t played any resent games, but I love the pokemon references. Keep ‘em coming and keep up the good work!
It’s sooooooo weird seeing rick with no ears because everyone else in every comic has ears and ricks just bald and earless
Videogames. The next best Daemon Seal in existance!
Guaranteed to drain all the motivation of your personal world destroyer!
Great to turn your bloodthisty haunt into a interesting curio for your neighborhood!
It’s funny how Rick’s eyes seems as the one of an hypnotized (or hypnotizing) person ^^”
“”" You said you’d clean up before Kade and Nicole gpt home “”"
Sorry , Rick ; they prefers to obey to Nicole (first panel) : http://www.savestatecomic.com/2015/06/play-nice/
nessie has been fully integrated with the others just like harvey
Harvey just conned Ness into being its secretary.
Alright, seems that Harvey and Ness are getting along just fine.
You know, it’s funny seeing Rick act like a parent to two spirits.
How does his doll hands work the tablet?
They don’t, or at least, not very well. If there was another panel you’d see Ness chewing on the tablet in anger.
Nessie is so cute x3
Looks like Rick has permanently moved in to the haunted mansion. What does he do for a living? My guess is beta tester…..
Rick doesn’t live in the mansion. He’s good friends with Kade and Nicole from elementary school so he visits often. And checks up on the “children” when no one else is home.
So Kade and Nichole just got back from E3 huh? Well now that begs the question, which game(s) are they most hyped for?
If I was Kade I’d be hyped for KH3.
I’d say Star Fox Zero. The last really good Star Fox game was way back on the N64, so it’s about time. I’ve heard the controls are hard to get used to, but they sound a little like Splatoon’s setup. At first that game is really hard to control, but after it sinks in I couldn’t imagine playing without the motion enhanced camera.
Achievement Unlocked: Pure Laziness! 50G
Darn, I wish I was able to attend the Nintendo E3. It would have been so cool!
A question : Ness will be able to speak normally soon , or she’s reduced to “squeak” sound ?
She’s can only squeak and growl. It hasn’t really come up yet, but Harvey can fully understand Ness while the others can only pick up on the general gist. Kind of like Rocket Raccoon and Groot.
I’m surprised Nicole or Kade didn’t dress Ness as a pokemon and take it with them.
Can I date Rick?
No I want him
Uh oh. I fear a fangirl war coming on.
Looks like Harvey and Ness started to get along enough that they work together on games over the winter and spring. (Remember, folks, last arc was in winter, and E3 is always in summer, soooooo…timeskip. Right, Tim?) Though I wonder just what kind of mess the two ghosties made….
Yeah, big time skip, so Ness has had time to settle down.
Um… it’s three comics away (I think) that we’ll get into what those two have been up to. :3
so competition then e3? Busy day
also, I’m Batman
Why aren’t Harvey’s speech bubbles gray anymore?
I’m sure Tim’s going to correct me on this, but it seems to me that the speech bubbles are colored only when the speaking character is not visible in the panel (red=Nicole, blue=Kade, green=Rick, gray=Harvey).
Actually, Harvey’s speech bubbles have always (previously) been gray, even when he’s in the frame. See http://www.savestatecomic.com/tag/harvey/ for the strips featuring Harvey.
Because I done messed up. -_- Harvey’s speech bubble is grey to show it’s voice is kind of haunting and abnormal. Like how Deadpool always speaks with a yellow speech bubble.
Tim are you from Europe? I noticed you spell grey with an e, but everyone else in the comment chain spell it with an a.
Also I used to spell it with an a, but since I played a lot of games that spell it with an e I switched over.
I’m in the US. I’m not sure why I use an e. Must have been something I picked up long ago and never even gave it a second thought.
I’ve noticed that the comic thumbnails (see http://www.savestatecomic.com/category/comics/ and http://www.savestatecomic.com/tag/nicole/ ) haven’t been updating with your fixes to the main comics. The CS geek in me feels like an automated solution to updating those (perhaps with PHP) when the main strips are updated should be possible, but it may not be worth the effort to fix such a minor thing when it can either be left as is or fixed manually.
I see Harvey’s got its normal voice back again.
I kind of wish this comic had been one frame longer.
Harvey: “Where’s the next Riddler challenge, Ness?”
I was wondering the same thing as Panther. Will Ness ever be able to talk and will we ever know his/her identity?
Ness speaks like Groot – very limited but a few can understand her. There’s a backstory to Harvey and Ness. I was going to wait a bit, but maybe I’ll work it into Halloween this year.
Are they every going to try and expand her vocabulary?
She doesn’t have any vocal cords. The best you could do is give Ness a Speak-n-spell.
