    What is it with the flak gun?

  2. Lh'owon says:

    Heh, love Strafe Left.

    @Alex: You mean why pick it up? For the same reason you’d fit someone with concrete shoes if you wanted to drown them.

    Nice comic by the way, Tim.

  4. Simon says:

    Nice work, I like that the squid ink memoirs idea is the thing that tips it.

  5. Jonathan Burroughs says:

    For the first time I’m left baffled. What’s the reference?

  6. Man Raised By Puffins says:

    Silent Hunter III, I presume.

  7. Roman Levin says:

    I don’t really see a reference here. It’s just funny.

    You would figure they’d bolt the flak gun down to rpevent this sort of thing.

    I’m actually going through torpedo training in SH4 right now. So far so interesting. Probably the first game I’ve played where making use of a compass and protractor is vital.

    Short Sunderland. Oh, you have to be a very special sort of nerd to laugh at that one. And I laughed.

    Would’ve been better if the last panel was just the silent grey guy standing with no one beside him.

    @Fraser:

    You’re onto something there.

  13. Chris R says:

    Yeah Fraser, that’s what I thought was going to happen at the end. :( Poor grey guy.
