I like webcomics.
I like WoW.
I like webcomics about WoW. Duh.
I like The Daily Blink. Great stuff. (loved loved LOVED todays strip.)
All that aside, The Daily Blink has sidebar advertisements.
So what, so does most gaming-related sites, if only to make enough moola to cover server costs.
But The Daily Blink is special, in that they are firmly in the “webcomic + MMO + video game” demographic.
And so, as I enjoyed todays cartoon, I got to see this on the side of the screen;
I have to ask.
WHAT F’ING GAME ARE THEY RUNNING OVER THERE?
I mean, I had to read it a few times to get the idea that this wasn’t an ad for porn, this was an MMO teaser. For an assassin character.
The Silent Assassin? What, you “can’t hear her coming”?
Okay, that was low, even for me.
Hows about, you won’t be prepared for the ganking you’ll get when she slides down off that pole?
Sorry, I know the trend is ridiculous fantasy female portrayals to grab the eye, but does it work when the art blows past interesting and slides right into satire?
Hmm. I detect a subliminal trend here. Better stop, and go take a shower.
Seriously, though. WTF?!?
