I’m still a bit upset the Angry Sun isn’t in the game. Maybe they’ll add it later; then we’ll get to see how far Nicole can drop kick a GamePad.
Is it weird that I read Kade and Nicole’s Dad’s voice in Avi Avidan’s voice?
nope, not at all.
Kade still looks like a puppy.
So I guess there no sun for Kade to worry about?
Not yet, but there’s empty slots in Mario Maker for new additions to the game. I bet we’ll see it eventually.
I guess Nicole could add that on Kade’s turn once the update comes out.
LOL she should get revenge on Kade in a future panel! Her level with thousands of suns trying to get him, and Harvey would be proud of Nicole!!!
In more ways than even he’d care to admit, Kade IS still a puppy.
I’ve noticed that, its part of his charm.
I guess must games are still a big puppy at heart ;3
Love Nicole in that last panel,
Sorry for all the posts, trying to fix my icon.
“gonna kill him…”
Yup, it’s a hilarious pose/face.
She’s a pouty puppy.
a VERY pouty puppy
Do it Nicole do it….. wait I mean lovely weather we have today isn’t it
2 pixels in the old games was like a foot. Now?! It looks like about .01 mm.
Pfft, “Cartridge”. Silly old people.
My thoughts, exactly. XD
It’s kind of funny; discs got so popular because of the amount of data but now we’re moving back into solid state chips, like SD cards.
I heard about that. Let’s see how it comes about.
“Nintendo NX will not have a disc drive”
“Silly old people.” << I was trying to write a book and had someone go indoors to find a phone. One of my test-readers immediately jumped all over me for that one.
I’d like them to add water (shake into lava) blocks so you can make bridge levels, add lava to various non-castle arias, and of course have floating water pools.
The biggest problem is there’s no way to force a player into a boss fight. You can just run past. What they really need are boss victory triggers, like the ? orbs from Mario 3.
My BF found a way, though it makes the boss fights harder. If you give the desired boss a clown car, and make the exit too high to get to without said clown car, then the boss must be beaten to receive said clown car.
Kade is super cute in every panel!
I agree, Kade is very cute. The fact that he’s so hyper about nearly everything helps add to that as well.
His curiosity meter must be maxed out! o:
“son of a biscuit!” lol that line and her face is my favorite part
I very much agree with you!!
(I was just now reading all the comments to see if anyone had posted about this before I added one at the bottom. (…and I wish more people of some strips I follow would do that!))
and now I’m thinking -dog- biscuit.
Perfect example of why, when making a game, if the difficulty is just right for you, it’s too hard.
I keep making levels that look easy to me, but then when I upload them I die multiple times to screams of ‘But I didn’t make it this hard!’
This is probably the best argument for adding multiple difficulty settings in a game or uploading different versions of the same level based on its difficulty. One difficulty for you because you’ve mastered it, one lower one for the friends who tested it and who probably spent enough time with your level to be good at it, one lower one even still for those who are trying it for the first time, maybe an extreme difficulty setting as well where there’s literally no room for error and also no room for additional tightening up of the level.
I’ve ran into several ‘If you don’t do exactly the right thing you auto die’ type segments. I do not star levels that are obviously unbeatable by anyone who doesn’t know all the secrets.
…Sometimes I wonder if Kade’s contacts were made by Dr. Styles
you are great at facial expressions, keep it up
I can relate with both, really. I feel the same way as Nicole when I play the levels made by others, but I also enjoy creating frustratingly difficult levels myself because it’s fun as heck…
The last three speech bubbles would’ve been cool showing Dad instead of Kade and Nicole.
Son of a biscuit ???
Keeps it at a PG level
Ah ! Well , i see ^^
It’s -funnier- too!
At first I was going to say that Kade’s going to be the one who makes Dark Souls 4, and then I realized that he’s not making Dark Souls 4. He’s already made Kaizo Mario World 4!
Once they add a scripting language I will be happy.
That would be amazing! Where is my official Pikachu teaches typing keyboard, Nintendo?
“Son of a biscuit”
Is that Nicole or their dad?
I love the fact that for any situation, everyone just asks Nicole. She’s like a fluffier, slightly more sarcastic version of Google.
So a fluffier version of Siri?
That’s Nicole cursing Kade after dying again in game.
It seems a lot of peoples dies during Nicole’s games ; remember the last panel of this strip :
Tim, I say this nearly EVERY TIME you post something, but you are a MASTER at facial expressions on canines and doing poses/angles.
granted, I say it on Twitter/Facebook most of the time…
OHH I JUST READ THE CAPTION.
id have thought that would be a fairly long trip… considering that Kade hinted it would be a long drive from their parents house back in: http://www.savestatecomic.com/2014/06/console-features/
Or am I barking up the wrong Tree?
I just looked at the link.
Tim, you’ve improved SO MUCH! I mean, you were already amazing to begin with, but you’ve only managed to get better and better!
Keep it up man!
Well… Time and practice generally does produce better results more than 50% of the time. The other 50% though? We… tend to not speak about… them…
It’s about a hour drive. Just long enough to get bored, but not so far that it’s undoable.
I have a serious daydreaming issue. It’s helpful though in long car rides when I don’t have anything to keep me occupied.
(Just kidding! I assume you’re the passenger for these trips.)
Yes, I was a passenger. But I’m also a multi-tasker.
ah ok well thats fair enough
Speaking of which, they’ve added a Mario Maker option for Super Smash Bros, I hope it’s a real custom level option, but if not at least we get something better than classic Mushroom Kingdom Stage, (though I wish for more pipes)
Wait. If kids today can’t even pass the first level of Super Mario Bros, what makes you guys think they can pass the levels WE create?
-or try to recreate.
Reminds me of when I used to play Neopets and I made a level in Faerie Caves II.
I got a friend of mine to play it and they were pretty much just like Nicole here, haha.
Load it up, load user level, and type in ‘amaroq_64′.
Just a random thing, but I’ve noticed Kade’s eyes are back to both being blue. Why is he embarrassed by his heterochromia?
Because peoples are joking about and bothering him (even p***ing off)
Fourth panel of this strip :
Lol so cute!
I kinda like kade without his blue eye lens. He looks cuter with 2 different colored eyes ^^
I love this comic. It’s cute, funny, and it makes me want to continue reading. One of my favorite pages is when Kade and Nicole were playing video games with their dad. It was so cute!
So….Kade is wearing his contacts again?
Since, like…June. I don’t want to sound rude, but I wonder why people never seem to notice these details
AWW he put the contact back in
Love Kade’s tail wagging in panel too. He’s so proud of himself and wants Dad to be too!
Mario maker: Jumping for Joy
evil, that is all
Kade is the Ross O’Donovan of Mario Maker levels.
sorry im replying idk how to post. im 11 and love your comics ^^
the ‘son of a biscuit’ is hilarious x3 also i like how you dont swear, like most of the 14-20 year olds i know.
your comic SUX LIKE ****. it is a complete rip-off of housepets it sucks none orf them are even funny how the heck do people like your comic? they must be stupid idiots who dont have a life also a 1 year old could make a funnier comic then u
These characters aren’t pets, there are no humans, and adults don’t wear collars. Sorry, no comparison.
And you think you can make funnier? Go make your own comic instead of wasting your pathetic excuse for a life trolling people who actually have talent.
I’m surprised that the game caught on, honestly. Yeah, I had little faith in it, but all of the great reviews seem to prove me wrong.
