This actually happened. I was watching this video at 1:30am when the SNES Classic preorders went live. Completely random chance.
Well, at least Kade can play Star Fox 2, because it wasn’t officially released! =^_^=
Was so gonna comment that…
Tricky Nicole has got the last word , young Kade . Hope this will be a lesson for you the next time you’ll think to wake up her suddenly XD
Play them ALL OVER AGAIN AND HACK IT TO ADD MORE GAMES TO IT! But play Star Fox 2 first!
*fistbumps* YEAH! I wonder myself ’bout the hackability of the console, if its similar to the NES classic..
I hope for an N64 classic to come out.
I can’t wait for a ps4 classic to come out.
I still just have my trusty ol’ PS1. Only game box I’ve ever owned.
Poor Kade, now he *has to * beat every single game again.
I’m not sure that’s gonna be a problem for him.
All this talk about how Nicole got him good, and that last panel’s implication that she got her revenge, is silly. Sure, Kade’s gonna lose some sleep, but I’m sure he finds that preferable to not having a SNES Classic.
Besides, wasn’t he binge-playing with the specific purpose of preparing to play the same games on the Classic? So how’s it an issue, if he’s gonna be facing the very thing he’d been preparing himself for?
(alliteration purely accidental)
Revenge is a dish best served cold
Say an evily grinning Nicole ^_^
The next arc should be a Nicole arc, maybe going to a Library and meeting someone new while Kade is thinking about what to do with the SNES.
Question of the month : how many peoples will use the fifth panel as avatar ?
even the second if you ask me.
Please… would you mind to explain how to do it…? I’m kinda bored of not having an avatar to post here… =^_^”=
honestly, brother or not if he did that to me he would probably get my fist on his nose by reflex.
So , Kade is lucky to be not your brother (or do it to you) ^_^”
But he can’t do it with Nicole : she’s stronger than him to fight
Panel 2 – the f8rst time you find THAT part of the internet
I really like Kade’s expression in panel 2.
I like how his paws are shaking xD
This face of Kate is awesome! xD
I originally posted a “Peanut yells at Grape and wakes her up” reference, but I think it was too obscure and didn’t get past the moderators. It may have looked random.
So, now that I’ve explained it is a Housepets! reference, I’ll try again.
“GRAAAAAAAPE!” or “NICOOOOLE!”
Bleh. It’s not as funny once you explain it…
@ Cyberdragon694 :
This one ?
I didn’t even think of that… why didn’t I think of that upon seeing the third panel?
To be honest, some details in Savestate seem heavily based on Housepets – collars with custom tags for each character (still haven’t really figured the logic of that in the Savestate universe), the level-headed but violent girl with the exciteable but peaceful dude, spirits and ghostly things…
There are notable differences, of course, mainly the sibling relationship between the two mains and heavy focus on gaming here. Nevertheless, in particular because of the tagged collars, I’m under the impression that Housepets is a major inspiration.
I believe Tim has stated that Housepets was one of the inspirations. Don’t recall the second. But the character of Rick is supposed to be an homage to both inspirations.
Maybe “BrokenPlotDevice” ?
Was a nice comic ; but gone back from zero , and practically dead now X_X
Just checked, yep, Broken Plot devices.
From what I’ve seen, I think the biggest inspiration is Tim’s own life and personalised collars (and a lot of other things) make sense at a more universal level – pretty much everyone wants to change or set themselves apart in some way, even if it’s just with fashion.
I’m also pretty sure that Tim’s sister knows how to throw a punch… in a loving sisterly lady-like way of course.
No doubt Tim gets a lot of inspiration from his own life, but I’m pretty sure he’s gone on record in saying that Housepets! was a big influence. He even named Rick after the creator of Housepets!.
I know, I’m not saying that he hasn’t mentioned it was an influence. Just that from what I’ve seen, most similarities are so universal, that they apply to a whole bunch of shared real-life things and stories, rather than one in particular. Anyway… back to game-obsessed car-driving dogs.
Oh come now, I haven’t punched Tim since we were children! (he totally deserved it too) P:
He was lucky – my sister would bare her teeth and use her nails. She always went for the face too, and no she isn’t a cat.
Wait, so Kade wasn’t awake for a week before the preorders started (I’m picking up mine at Gamestop later today)
For me it popped up at 10PM (Here in Alaska). This was a rare case for me, because usually these preorders go up at 4am here. People complained about how the SNES classic went up in the middle of the night. Well they got exactly how I felt for all the other previous ones.
Kade, what were you thinking?
Nicole is such a savage and I love it.
There’s a reason she is my overall favorite!
Possibly the first time I’ve seen Kade had a realization expression.
Either demand is way less in Norway than the US, or Nintendo really did supply a lot to the market, ’cause I just casually walked into gamestop a few weeks before the launch and ordered it, then slightly less casually walked in and picked it up at launch
I just noticed that Kade as the Zelda treasure sound for notifications, just like I do! :O
Kade is such a puppy.
