    It seems that Tim Buckley of Ctrl Alt Del fame, and Ben "Yahtzee" Croshaw of Zero Punctuation, are at each other's throats, in another installment of Internet Drama. Ahem.

    A long time ago, in a gaming review far far away, Yahtzee commented briefly on the fact that a comic, being primarily a visual art form, should have more, well, visuals, using Tim "Wall-O-Text" Buckley's CAD as an example of what not to do.

    Suffice it to say, this escalated. (I'll skip the three pages of links to escapades from both sides, because, damn, three pages. Of links. Wall of walls of text.)

    Leading us to this week's episode of Zero Punctuation, How to make Gaming Webcomics.

    I'll spare you my take on the story, and just let you gather your own info and draw your own conclusions. In case you're not familiar with the subject matter. And then get back here. And vote. And discuss.

    So, in today's installment of Internet Drama
    , who do you vote for? Tim B^U Buckley, or Ben Croshaw?

    Yahtzee all the way!

    BTW, ZP wasn't the first to mock the miscarriage comic.

    yey Yahtzee!

    I liked his video this week but it wasn't up to the standards of his reviews. I hope he goes back to reviewing games.

    VGCats also mocked CAD before the whole baby thing..

    [​IMG]

    Yeah.. The miscarriage thing was ridiculous, I wouldn't mind if Buckley created a new webcomic more serious, with stuff like that.. but putting it on CAD was a stupid decision..

    He made some very funny comics in the past, but now it's been some time since I saw something good over there :/

    Seems like no one really like CAD. Oh well... I don't really care because it's not my problem. If the end comes, then it comes. It's his comic(HE MAKES IT), but he can still be mocked/made fun of for it.

    This is stupid. Besides, Something Positive's first comic, like 5 years ago was an abortion joke.

    What... the fuck? Is this real? [​IMG] Even I'm at a complete loss for words at this (which is rare)

    I have never heard about this miscarriage CAD thing, can anyone point me to when this all happened?

    Ok.

    So CAD is a comic in the vain of Penny Arcade...pretty much the same thing. Awhile ago the two characters had sex, she got preggo, and they got engaged. Now, CAD is a video game humor comic. And all of the sudden they through in this miscarriage story arc, which just seems RIDICULOUS and totally out of place.

    Read from here on:

    http://www.ctrlaltdel-online.com/comic.php?d=20080528

    It is his comic, but he is still doing very poorly at writing it lately. The ones I posted are parodies making fun of the idea. I mean its a comic that has a joke....and all of the sudden something this serious happens? The hell.....

    QFT. You would think the would be some sort of "easing in" to such a serious comic, but there wasn't. I used to like CAD, even with the flak it's been getting, and with Tim being essentially a dick. But now, I can't read it anymore. He just went too far out there.
