I would actually buy the game day one if it was like this,

"The forces of light" : ok I get the Deathnote reference
"Must defeat the Darkness" : Well, I get get one third of it. Who are the 2 in the front ?
"And Protect the traveler" : Who is that ??

The band "The Darkness" is number 2 and Brad Pitt in Snatch is number 3

It's reference humour.

The third panel is Brad Pitt as a gypsy, and one hell of a bare-knuckle boxer, from the movie "Snatch"

The Darkness:

If they could defeat a giant space squid with lightning guitars, what hope do Guardians have?

I get all of those references, and I am glad.

Alright, bone throwing:

I think some people might struggle with this one a little bit :P

Not pictured: Your helpful companion the Ghost

#2 makes me with for a collaboration between Mike Patton and The Darkness...

I feel like the monkey that stacked the boxes and used the stick to reach the banana. MMMMMH BANANA.

Although I don't get all the references, I see what you're doing here. Very clever.

I was going to say we need Mike Patton in there somewhere.

Ah so there is. Awesome.

The darkness are easily the best band I've seen live, such great artists and performers! Justin Hawkins did a lap of the crowd on a bouncers shoulders!

I like this though. All forces of darkness should be replaced by the darkness.

Did anyone else picture the second panel playing Binary Divide? I'm open to suggestions on the first and third panels.

My initial thought on panel one

"I'll take a potato chip*Deep heavy rhythmic breathing* AND EAT IT!"

I lost my shit-though unfortunately not necessarily at the comic strip. That being said, I have no idea what Destiny is and have managed to ignore it completely from my Radar. So I'm left taking your word for the story idea. So in my mind it's a guy who dramaticizes eating potato chips needing to battle a very old band in order to protect some homeless dude with a trailer...It sounds like a Marvel Cinematic Universe just waiting to happen. Make it so.

I think that Death Note could only be improved if Light had his own strangely dressed militia.

From what I've heard of Destiny's plot, this would make for a better game.

I bet ya can bax a little, can't ya? Aye, you look like a baxer.

Become Legend. Take a potato chip.

...

AND EAT IT!

Snatch is one of my favorite movies... and I still didn't get it.

Oly J:

I would love to defeat The Darkness.

Never thought I'd see Irish Travelers being referenced in a Critical Miss comic.

Silvianoshei:

D'ya like dags?

Trying to type in another accent's phonetics is a tricky business. When I read what I wrote, I hang on the "a" in 'ya' longer than if I'd typed 'ye,' though the sound of 'ye' is totally wrong. Same kind of problem when I read 'like' - that's got the cadence right but misses the accent which I'd type out as 'laik' except that seems too stretched out.

Fun stuff to play with, though.

I believe in a thing called love, just listen to the rhythm of my heart!

There's a chance we can make it now
We'll be rocking til the sun goes down
...
......
Couldn't resist!

OT great, great comic guys

I wish "The Traveler" was actually the giant tilting-based trailer stage in Tearaway. Just some guy with bling doesn't have that referential punch.

I've been trying to think of the best quote from Snatch to put into this comment but that movie is way too quotable to find the right one.

You like dags?

Defeat The Darkness? Not a chance, I'd be helping them conquer the world. If they are the enemy then the "good guys" are the same people who called Ozzy and AC/DC and Led Zeppalin the devils music. Down with old people! We don't need then anymore, we have the internet to discover information and culture now, it never lies to us!

Alternatively: "Something something something Darkness, something something something the Light, something something something something Guardians"... oh my God, this is basically every Final Fantasy game stripped of the characterization/jail bait fan service isn't it?

Hopefully The Darkness will feature Mike Patton.

What you did there, I see it. And like it.
Why would Light need any minions in impractically-designed helmets (come on! look at those things!) at all? He only needs Ryuk to ID the people to write the names of in the book.
And I SO want to party with The Darkness on their totally rocking spaceship!

These references, I get 2/3 of them. I am glad.

Now I have to watch Snatch again. Dammit Grey.

Daft Punk! Yay!

Captcha: worship nothing

But... what about Daft Punk?

A joke isn't funny if you don't have to look into the comments to find out what it was about.
