Corpse Run 346: It's bobsled time

 

LIVESTREAM UPDATE:

Okie dokie folks, the next livestream will be this Friday, September 13th at 10pm est!  As always, I’ll be doodling your suggestions, talking about nonsense, and playing games afterward!

For the games portion, I’ll be picking up where we left off last week in Resident Evil 4.  Woooooooo!

You can watch the stream by clicking here or here.

See you then!

END LIVESTREAM UPDATE!

I get the feeling that this is another one of those comics about a game most people haven’t played.  I don’t blame you if you’ve never heard of Theatrhythm Final Fantasy; I only found out about it a week ago myself.

Simply put, it’s a screen tapping rhythm game in the mold of Elite Beat Agents featuring tunes from every numbered FF game.  Adding to the rhythmic chaos is the character leveling system: you pick from all the main characters in the FF universe (and can unlock secondary characters as you play) who build stats and gain spells/skills as you progress through the tracklist.

Why the need to level up?  There are battle songs where correctly timing your taps executes attacks that damage on screen enemies; beating the song doesn’t necessarily mean you beat the boss, you need to do enough damage.

There are also field music songs, where keeping in time with the beat causes your heroes to run faster through an area; the more ground you cover, the more likely you are to find new items.

It’s a totally awesome game, and should you have a chance to play it, give it a try!

Anyways, about the comic.

Before a song starts, your party appears on screen and puts a sentence together, each one of them chipping in with their own speech bubble.  Significantly more often than not, the phrases they slap together always leave me scratching my head.

…and with that in mind, here are a few things I’ve overheard people say while commuting this week:

“I’ve been on fertility drugs for over a year, but I’m forty five.”

“John Cena should take a page out the the Rock’s book; he rebranded himself and now everyone knows the name Dwayne Johnson.”

“It’s not crotchless if there’s a patch.”

You heard it here first, folks, it’s not crotchless if there’s a patch.

 

I really wish I knew the context of that statement.
