Anarchy Online: "Floating Meatball"
Posted: Wednesday June 16th, 2004 by

Today's Comic is probably a bit over my head to explain. I mean, I get the gist of it myself, but, I don't know enough about the game to (Anarchy Online) to speak about it intelligently. The joke was submitted by ravaa, and I thought the concept was funny enough, so I ran with it.

So here's the way Ravaa explained it to me:
Meta-physicists are a pet class that summon 3 different types of pets. a melee pet, a mez pet , and a heal pet. the melee pets are described as different forms of anger. nanos(spells) like lesser fury externalization, transcendent anger manifestation, etc. I just find it funny that someone whose summoning a physical manifestation of his anger ends up summoning what looks like a floating meatball with tenticles.

So yeah, the guy on the left there is our meta-physicist. And that thing floating behind him is the anger produced pet that he summoned out of a "nano cloud" (read: thin air, the blue, his butt). The character is actually based on a screenshot submitted by Vayde, since Ravaa kinda shafted me in the screensht department. I ran across a screenshot of the floating meatball somewhere, but, I couldn't find it again after a forced system reboot.

Anywho, so Anarchy Online. When it was released it sucked. I held tight to that belief up until a few months ago, when emails started coming in constantly letting me know how much the game had improved. Really made em mad when I put it on my chopping block list. **whistles** So, yeah, here's your AO comic folks. You can stop emailing me now! Thanks.

And while you're at it, since I still don't have the time to play, go check it out yourself. It's only a 7 day free trial; but hey, that's enough to decide if you like it or not right?
