Bringing It Home

Well, the call has been answered. Yesterday I bowed my head to the great intarwub, and prayed that she would deliver unto me Irish web comics. The great intarwub is kind, and did verily answer my prayer.

Ahem. Anyway. Needless to say, I was quite excited to get my grubby little browser all over Press Start To Play. Northern Irish comics get bonus points from me simply for being Northern Irish, but PSTP gets super mega bonus points for being a Northern Irish comic that isn’t about all the typical crap that goes on over here and ultra uber platinum plated points for making me laugh out loud.

Okay. So it’s another gaming comic. I know we have lots of those, but can there really be too much of a good thing? Press Start To Play reminds me a lot of VG Cats with a hint of Penny Arcade, which nobody can even remotely consider a bad thing. The humor is also subtly less American. I find it hard to put my finger on it, since I’m from here and I consume so much American media, sometimes I find it hard to tell the difference. If you like gaming comics then there’s really nothing for it, you’re going to have to read PSTP, but when you do, remember these handy tips:

  1. Northern Irish people do not say “Feck�? the way they do on Father Ted. We are much cooler.
  2. “Crisps�? are what Americans call “Chips�?.
  3. “A-levels�? are what you get when you finish high school. I have 3 and a half.
  4. The staff in the Game in Belfast actually do this.

Hey, I just wanted to say thanks a million for these kind words, rocks! thanks alot.
