After I did this page, I threw in Battletoads (the inspiration for “Fighter Frogs”, the game they’re playing) again for the first time in probably like fifteen years. I’m actually a rare sort that can proudly say I’ve beaten it once (and only once), but the game was hard enough that I figured I probably wouldn’t do so well anymore if I tried again today. As it turns out, I still remember the game better than I thought and wasn’t actually that out of practice. Personally, I did better than I expected, until I basically got stuck on Level 10. What a beast, that one is.
So, in a way, I feel like I’ve invalidated my own joke for this page. In all fairness, I HAVE had this problem with other games… just not this one. So, it is plausible. Different people play differently too, after all.
Kind of a quickie today. Hope no one minds too much.

...well not really i suppose, though it does suck that your comic is one of the twelve or so that i read that doesnt update on the weekend, so i have to wait until wednesday to read some more, since ill be on a plane monday and tuesday.
So... Damn... True. Not even the specific game you're parodying here, but any game I played as a child. If it was easy for me then, it's hard for me now and if it was hard for me then, it's easy for me now. Like WTF? XD
The best way to get two people to hate eachother is to let them play Battletoads together. It is actually impossible to beat the game with two players, though before you get to the part where the game just starts glitching the second player to death, you first need to get through half of the game without accidentally punching eachother to death.
But oh well :p
