This Week In Miscellanea: “Son Of A Gun”

1. Is it time for new comix lovage? It IS time for new comix lovage! Feast your eyes on the improbable adventures of Jesus, the one true son of God.

In a new series of comix adventures, our lord JC decides he’s had it with his father’s laisez-faire approach to running the universe. The savior orders a new virgin birth in Russia circa 1905, puts in his time as a carpenter, and journeys across the border into Germany at a crucial moment in history…

Then… it’s time for THE PAYBACK!

2. On the slightly more quirky side, I challenge you all to get caught up on MS Paint Adventures, an enthralling, totally ludicrous take on old-school “police quest-“style adventure gaming.

LV. 2 Sleuth Diplomacy

Please note that while reading this comic you may rapidly become confused. This is normal. Bear with it and all will make sense in time. If you get stuck, just try being diplomatic.

Valve makes a note: HUGE SUCCESS

Valve announced today that its Steam digital distribution system has exceeded 15 million users.

In addition, an official press release states that Valve has seen 158% sales growth over the last holiday season, putting the company in a very strong position for 2008 and beyond. Steam’s rapid growth is likely due in part to the critical success of Portal, as well as the ever-expanding offerings available through the download service.

Offering fans even more good news, Valve‘s Doug Lombardi has told Eurogamer that while “There’ll be more Portal, for sure,” the developer isn’t looking to simply throw a handful of new puzzles at us. “The details of that, to be honest, we’re still working out,” he said.

Also being worked out at Valve headquarters are the continuing adventures of crowbar-wielding physicist, Gordon Freeman, who’s due to appear in Half-Life 2: Episode Three. “With Episode Three we want to live up to the promise of where we are taking things to; there’s a lot of work being done to make sure we deliver on that promise.”
