@Nick Cypher The Flames: That's awesome! Glad I'm not the only one who does weird things like that while playing games :p

@linkstar21: Exactly! xD
I'm Back?
Hopefully, I'll be able to start updating regularly again. I realize it's been quite some time ^^;

Anyway, I hope you guys enjoy. I always loved the "Lift" power from the first Mass Effect game. Shooting lifted enemies always felt like
playing Duck Hunt or shooting skeet :p
@Nick Cypher The Flames: I am too! I'm sorry. I've just been super busy with work. I've been meaning to talk with Paul and Zack about
rekindling Mediocre@Best. We'll see what we can do. Thank you for your support <3
@Draven22: I'm sorry about that! I haven't played either game (Legend of Dragoon and RE6, correct?). If I had, I would have made a
comic about one of them already. However, I did remind my brother to try to do a guest Legend of Dragoon comic and I mentioned the
RE6 comic idea to Zack. Hopefully, we get that done soon. Thank you for continuing to read our comic! ^^
And so it Ends!
I am not likely to ever do this again. It pretty much consumed my entire day, but it was nice to draw again xD
So it Continues!
The file was too large, so I had to split it into three parts. Here is the second!
So it Starts!
Paul and I decided to do an hourly comic challenge! In our case, it will be one three panel comic, every hour, for 12 hours. I did mine
yesterday since I had nothing else to do all day. It's a bit silly, and not the best quality, but I hope it's at least somewhat entertaining ^^
Thanks for reading!
@BoltOfSpades: Yeah, I don't know xD I was trying to exaggerate Franklin's terrible fashion sense, but he ended up looking like a
Fresh Prince/Kwame from Captain Planet hybrid-thing 0_o

@Nick Cypher The Flames: Thanks! It feels good to be back in action. Haha! Yes, he should. I'm glad you agree ^^
@shadowjoe323: The one in the upper right corner is LaTale ^^
Oh, I'll Be Around...
when all this fucking fashion brings you down! (random Say Anything reference)
Anyway, this completed comic has been just sitting there in my art folder for like a week and a half. I forgot to post it yesterday, sorry ^^;
Last month I played and completed Grand Theft Auto 5. This is unusual for me, as I don't normally like GTA. It's always amusing at first, but
then the novelty of killing, thieving, and causing general havoc starts to wear off after about 15 minutes. GTA5 is great because you still
get to do all that, but I felt like there was more of a point. Not to mention, the story is decent and the characters are fun. One thing I always
noticed though, is that after putting all of this effort into making the characters look a certain way, they would always change clothing when
left to their own devices. Michael would wear a suit, which was fine. Trever would randomly show up in nothing but his underwear (hell, one
time, he was even wearing a dress), but that's just funny. Franklin however, would change into sweatpants, yellow plaid shirts, and a
bunch of other shit that didn't match.
And for some reason, when I drew him, he ended up looking like Kwame from The Planeteers 0_o
@Draven22: More to come soon! I was talking to Paul and Zack the other day and we all agreed to update on a more regular basis after
our brief semi-hiatus. Thank you for hanging in there! ^^

@MecanicalCH: Thanks! I got a decent amount of gifts and I really liked everything I got. Overall, I had quite a nice Christmas. I hope that
you had a great day as well!
And To All A Good Morning!
Because it's 5:30 in the morning as I post this! I just really wanted to get it done on time. We wanted you all to know that even though we
haven't been updating as much lately, we're still thinking of you, our readers. So Merry Christmas! If you don't celebrate Christmas, I hope
you can still enjoy the Christmas/Winter characters that I put together. Thank you for your patience, everyone, and have a wonderful
New Year as well! <3
@Draven22: Good news! There is a strong possibility that we will have a guest Legend of Dragoon comic, so keep an eye out ;D

@BoltOfSpades: There are six of us total (4 boys and 2 girls), including Paul and myself: My older brother, me, Tim, Paul, Jesse, then
Mandy. That's quite a lot, but there was never a dull moment at my house growing up xD
@MecanicalCH: Thank you so much! xD

@Draven22: I unfortunately haven't played Legend of Dragoon yet, but Zack is our Resident Evil guy! I'll see if he can make something
involving RE6. Thank you for the suggestions :D
I'm Back!
Hey there, everyone! I know it's been a while since I updated. I've been quite busy with moving and such. However, I'm finally settled (for
the most part) back in Cali where I belong :3

I was unaware that Paul and Zack would ALSO be taking a break for my move *slackers* so I would like to thank you all for being patient
with us in spite of our lack of recent updates.

In other news, it has been over a year since we started Mediocre@Best! So exciting. I would like to do something special so... do any of
you, as our readers, have a request? Any certain game that you would like us to make a comic about? Anything about gaming in general
that you would like to see covered? Just leave a comment below and we will do our best! ;D

This comic in particular is inspired by the first time I forced my little sister to play L4D2 with me. It was quite hilarious. She is definitely not
ruthless enough to survive a zombie apocalypse. I suppose that's why she has me and the rest of our family ^^ I hope you guys like it!
@Paulgasm: Well, first it was "Paul Lightning," then it was "OP-ness." I'm just drawing a conclusion based on past events xD
@shadowjoe323: Next time Paul says something ridiculous like this, I will definitely put it in a comic xD

@MecanicalCH: Probably not, I'm sure he'll say something stupid again soon :p
"Oh, Penis" FTW!
Just something that happened when Paul opened his mouth before thinking about how it would sound.
I might end up making a series of these xD
@Killerfire99: Um, hell yes! We would love to have you contribute. If you ever feel the urge to make a comic, just let Paul or me know and
we can make sure that it gets posted :D
Samus Aran instantly became my video game hero when I discovered that she was a woman. Most of the video games that I played when I
was younger had a male protagonist, so being able to control a female character was amazing! Sorry my comic is late, I've just been sooo
busy. I'll be extremely busy for the next month or so, but I will still try to get my comics done often as possible and as well as I can.
Also, as promised, this particular strip is NOT about League! :D

PS: I know that Samus was revealed as a woman at the end of Metroid for the NES, but considering the fact that I was not yet born when
that game was released, I found out for the first time when I died in Super Metroid ^^
