Terminal Lance “Gaming the Game”


If life were an RPG, and the Marine Corps were part of that RPG, the SIQ chit would be a +10 enchanted weapon. With it you wield a godly power sought by all Lance Corporals throughout the ages: Unlimited Skating Potential. The power it contains may as well be sorcery, for those who carry the Chit are granted an exponential bonus against all Fuckery rolls. Corpsmen hold an express power over this wizardry–or as we call it here, Butt-Fucking Navy Sorcery. It is through bribery and parlor tricks blow jobs you might be able to persuade one of them to grant you this revered document, for no Marine has ever been known to attain one through genuine means of illness.

Okay I don’t really know where I’m going with this, I just know that Destiny is out today, and I suspect there’s going to be a lot of sick people in the barracks the world as the game makes the rounds.

I’m a huge nerd, this shouldn’t come as a surprise to any of you that have kept up with me this long. I oftentimes reference video games in my humble comic strip, because video games have been a central pillar of my hobbies for as long as I can remember. Hell, I could probably attribute Metal Gear Solid 3 as being at least 24% of the entire reason I joined the Marine Corps. What can I say? I love them. I’ve actually found they have a very real stress-relieving effect on myself. When I’m feeling too overwhelmed with the world it is often a good few hours of game time that will bring me back to sanity. There’s something about laying back with a controller in my hand, blankly staring at the TV that I find irreplaceably relaxing and soothing.

That is, unless I’m playing Mario Kart. It is not time to relax when I’m playing Mario Kart. If I’m playing Mario Kart, children and elderly should probably avoid me, because the amalgam of anger and hateful curses that exit my lips goes beyond anything even most Marines would be accustomed to.

Anyway, if you follow me on Twitter I occasionally broadcast my gaming live on Twitch. Because, I dunno, why not? I don’t do it often, simply because I don’t have the time to, but keep an eye out on my twitter and my Twitch channel. Last time (a couple weeks ago) myself and some helpful individuals finished the Silent Hill “PT” demo on PS4.

(Scary as fuck, by the way)
