Check here for parts 1, 2, and 3. And 0.

I know I tweeted about this, but the comics with little dialogue and actual character interaction are far harder than the standard yuck-yuck-yuck-video-game-punchline jokes I normally do. It's hard to convey genuine feelings between characters, and even harder without them explicitly saying what they're thinking. I hope you enjoy this week's double-length Nerd Rage.

If you were to distill the 90s into a thick, Sega-based substance, then weave that goo into an ugly jacket you would get this. It's hard for me to believe a conscious person ever wore this thing, yet there's already a bidding war. Only one man is truely fit to wear this jacket of extreme mondo cool blast-processing kings.

The ongoing legal battle between Activision and the former Infinity Ward heads, Jason West and Vincent Zampella, is interesting to say the least. For every underhanded move one side reveals, the opposition matches. For example, the pair were going to make $16 million each the same year they were canned.

It's nice to see New Play Control: Pikmin 2 is making it to the US (as a $20 Nintendo Select title, no less). The rest of the world (yes, even Australia) got the game in 2009, but it never showed up stateside, supposedly due to the number of real-world brands that appeared on the game's many 'treasures'. Nintendo surely has reason to pick up the slack and work out the bugs with talk that Pikmin 3 will be predominantly displayed for the upcoming Wii U.
