I take it we're supposed to replace the all-seeing eye pyramids with triforces?

This comic seems less about gamer identity and more about this twitter account: https://twitter.com/illuminati_stop

Well, it actually hurt to read that feed. Though I am sure/hope/please for the love of sanity let it be true that he is trolling. Oh who am I kidding? Of course there are people out there who think that Obama/McCain/Romney/Palin/whoever they don't like are Illuminati shills. Of course their own pet candidate is the only honest one out there.

OT and real talk. Looks like the guys are actually taking a shot at all of the conspiracy theories within the gaming community specifically. Gamergate/Doritogate/Mountain Dewgate/whatever. I just get the impression from their work that they actually dislike gamers...a lot. Not that gamers don't give them cause but the incredible smugness they exude at times makes even Moviebob seem reasonable at times.

So who is this mocking anyway?

Gamers who wear Mario hats to work, when they don't make/sell games? Conspiracy theorists? People who back anything on Kickstarter without giving some research and meaningful thought into it, just to get cool looking reward?

So, outside of conspiracy nuts, it's your standard "you're not like me, therefore you're a weirdo who I have the right to ridicule"? Fairy nuff. "Well dressed" to my mind has always been a synonym for "uptight pretentious wankers who believe everyone else is adhering to trends while they're just 'normal' and who care more about how much their clothes cost than basic comfort" - as long as someone's clothes are clean and their arse isn't hanging out of their trousers, why should it matter if they want to wear a Mario cap rather than some hispter-fuck fedora or a sports-company-branded beanie? That's rhetorical; it only matters to morons.

I take it you don't have a high-paying career, then?

The account is quite clearly trolling and joking, mocking the conspiracy theories...

It's twitter. And Twitter being Twitter I would argue that it cannot be quite clearly anything. The odds are good that it is bad satire but I have seen serious as fuck shit that looked just like that.

Wow, TWO 9/11 strips in a row ...huh, must be that time of the year ^^

Dressing tips from the lady who can't figure out how to tuck in shirt tails.. not even up under a sweater vest!

I've always wondered about the mechanics of that. Since her sweater-vest is a fitted pullover, those shirt tails should, by right, ride up like nobody's business in everyday wear. And yet there they stay. Perhaps we really should be taking style tips from a character who has (evidently) figured out how to make fabric defy the laws of physics.

If my cosplayer friends have taught me anything, physics is easily defied through the use of double-sided tape, when it comes to clothing.
