Grapenuts are back!
I sir am insulted. What makes you think we left?
they never left, they were just king centered
Hardly, whenever Grape and Peanut leave, we break down for a week, accept it, keep our interest glued on the new arc (Even if it isn’t peanut and grape and (insert other character here)). Then when they they return, we celebrate with a convention where cat and dog lovers go, and we have a huge video game competition. I am in charge of decorating this time ^_^
I have to admit this is true.
yusseri…..have to agree
Yes, decorations were fantastic! I loved the streamers.
Idk, i think the nut in this strip would have to be the peanut (wow, that was awful. . .)
What? I thought they were referring to the ship Grapenut (Half grape half peanut)
Curses, I thought they were referencing the food grapenut
Oh no, not that lol! The name does have meaning!
USE THE CLUSTERBOMBS!!!
DO A BARREL ROLL!
I can’t let you do that, Ko.
DO A BARREL ROLL ANYWAYS!
USE THE BOOST TO GET TO THE THING
THEN USE THE BRAKES TO SLOW DOWN
USE BOMBS WISELY!
FIRE A U-TURN!
I love those guys.
Use clusterbombs wisely!
*Boing boing BOOM*
I’d go with the Holy Hand Grenade
quick use up, up, down, down, left, right, left, right, a, b, a, b!
The ultimate combo move, only to be used as a last resort.
Ah, video games, truly the route to all memes.
A meme to an end? By any meme necessary?
Why, whatever do you meme?
I remember me giving others instructions about playing.
Everyone has that moment, Chances are Instructor going insane and player go nuts
The first is likely to happen before the second.
this is me when i’m trying to tell others how to play a game correctly….and by correctly i mean MY way or i’m going to take the controller and finish it myself. or take Peanut’s approach, just strangle them until they get it right! XD
Ugh, backseat gamers. Much worse than backseat drivers.
I shudder to think what the world would be like if Peanut learned to drive
THE THING!!! THE THING!!!!
USE THE SMASH BALL!!!!
Peach: “What’s that glowy thing?”
Samus: “It’s the thing I use to kick. your. butt.
I never would have guessed peanut is a total backseat gamer
IT’S RIGHT THERE! JUST GET IT ALREADY!
I CAN’T! I DON’T HAVE THE JETPACK YET!
USE YOUR DOUBLE JUMP ABILITY!
better yet, CHEAT CODES
But… but… that’s cheating!
Yes, but they are the best and most fun type of cheating.
You must beat the game at least once before using cheat codes, so says the gamer manifesto.
lol nice title pun there. What game are they playing I wonder?
Team Fortress 2, Portal 2, Packman, Smash Bros? Hm.
Supersmash bros brawl for sure!!
That stuff gets intense.
It has to be a single-player, or Peanut would be playing too
It’s definitely Portal 1 or 2. Sometimes it gets really intense.
And by “guy”, he means the turrets.
There are no ladders in portal though
True. o, -,o
But there are (Jeff) Bridges.
Skyrim isn’t on the Nintendo Wii, though.
Grape wills Skyrim to work on the Wii, Skyrim now works on the Wii.
ALL HAIL GRAPE!
Skyrim doesn’t have timers like that.
*refers to “20 second left!”*
No, but it’s still an awesome game, and one Peanut would like…But, you have a valid point.
It could be super smash bros brawl, if you had a required time to complete the level.
On another note, they could be playing Super Mario Land on virtual console. Some enemies shoot in that game.
Ya. definitely Super Mario Land
Super Mario Galaxy 1 or 2. Bet it’s one of those.
Or they might be playing a classic game from the store thing the Wii has (have not played on the Wii for some time. I think it was referred to a market channel or something).
I notice they are indeed using the Classic Controller.
God of War III
It IS on N64… so it can be played on a (hacked) Wii…
She could be playing a mission; that would fit perfectly!!
See ya! *BOOM*
Half λ Life? or even Gears of Halo Theft Auto 5. The problem with that game has so much explit and graphic ESRB made a new rating for it.
(I would list them for Griffins sake but I would get banned for it.)
I wish I had a Wii so that I could play what ever game they are playing
Super Mario Sunshine.
Definitely Super Mario Galaxy.
I know how Peaunt Feels like! I misssed ya peaunt and grape.
Iwould want peanut to walk me through games it would awesome!
And that it! that what was on the tip if my tongue, Grape asked for a walk though… dogs go nuts when you say walk!
Just noticed, No arc have been added yet.
Because it’s a one-off strip. An arc title will be added upon the next non-one-off strip.
Its a one off that Rick usually does in between arcs, most of the time for a week. This is the first set we have had in a while though.
WATCH FOR GHOSTS! GET THE CHERRY!
Is she playing super smash bros brawl?
but there is no jump, shoot and spin in pacman.I guess it is not…
But there are ghosts and cherries and dots and larger dots which may be considered things and probably the things the Peanut was referring to with so much passion.
Wow, long sentence.
Ah Mario we knew you back when
Hipster Gamer: “I was into Mario before he had his own title!”
THE THING!!!! THE THING!!!! we must git the thing!!!
GET THE THIIIIIIIIIIIIIIINNNGG!!!!! xD
OK, I’LL GET THE THING!
Oh, look! A big thingy like the other thingy!
But what if it just looks like the THING but isn’t the THING?
then the THING is a lie
The thing with the thing. You know, that one thing. No, not that thing, the other thing.
so, how many of you guys is like peanut right now in the last panel, but saying “WE MISS YOOOOOU”
*raises hand* me! my avatar says it all! xD
all I can say to raising hands and pointing at pets is
*computer moniter hits gamer35 in the face*
I missed ya. HP! with out Peaunt and Grape is like chewing Gum without flavour, something with out something.
HAHA! Very clever. putting that “thing” in there. *nudge nudge*
“It’s blinking! It’s blinking it’s going to disapp…. YOU MISSED IT! GRAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAPE!“
Metal Grape Solid
Fuzzy Gear Solid
Metal gear sandwitch.
Grapes of War?
A Tale of Two Grapes?
Rofl, the Grapes of Wrath, mayhaps?
Alt/title = “Obviously I have failed to convey the importance of the thing”
I’ve been craving a peanut butter and grape jelly sandwich…
YOU MONSTER!!! how can u say that!
have a gryphon wing
This is me and my friends when we got to the underworld area in Dark Souls.
Really? That’s me in the Lost Izalith. Nothing says “hit the guy” and “jump” like a room full of lava and enormous bipedal monsters
We had like 4 people over, we beat Quelaag and the Endless Seethe, and we’re greeted with like thirty Taurus demons, it took us 2 and a half hours of screaming and sprinting through waves of old bosses before we realized we went the wrong way…
Ah, the good times of Dark Souls. . .
omg it like when you are playing games with your noob cousin, and you know WAY more about the game than he does, and he insists that you get everything that He wants in it, eventually messing you up…. dem moments
I hate playing with the family just because of that, same goes for five year older cousin telling me everything I know in Halo.
You get that thing I sent ya?
Did you get THAAAAT THING ….. thatIsentya…?
This video has some relevance, and explains THE THING(Y)
Haha! Backseat gaming at its finest!!!!
GET THE THIIIIIING!!! Get it get it!
I need you to say which one.
The one I’m looking at!!!
I’ll just get all of them.
No! That one makes you lose a bazillion points! Why did you have to get thaaaat?!?!
What was that THING?!!! o.0
It’s super effective?
Nope it was lacking the power of a smash orb.
Show me your moves!
*grabs his wii mote* THE FIGHT IS ON!
ZELDA’S MY WHAT?!? ZELDA’S MY WHAT!?! WHAT IS ZELDA!?!
That was a freaky video…
I had nightmares about that for a WHOLE month. O_O *eye twitches*
Ah, the sweet times when we I went to the Arcades without a penny just to p*ss off the gamer with my wise and hysterical instructions…
Even I’m not old enough for arcade games to have accepted pennies!
I don’t think arcade games are even old enough!
I think Valerio just meant that they had no coinage what-so-ever, but just went to watch and comment.
Contrariwise, said TweedleArgent, if that’s what he meant then he should have said that!
I used that sentence as a catchphrase.
In Italian, i would’ve said ‘Quando non avevo una Lira’ (when I hadn’t a Lira, which was our national currency before the Euro)
Next time, I’ll translate it better, sheesh!
No, no, old chap, stay on course, I need the straight men.
In my head they’re playing Jak and Daxter, because that’s the first game that comes to mind that has a spin-jump that gives you extra distance/hight while jumping. I know it’s common of many platformers, but still. XP
And the fact that Grape appears to be playing a Wii kinda makes this not plausible at all.
Looks more like a Nintendo controller to me.
I know it’s a wii controller, it was just the first thing that came to mind. >.<
THE THIIIIINNNNNGGGGGGGG GET IT !!!!!!
Brings back some nice memories of childhood
Before video game objectives and plots became as complicated as…Inception?
USE YOUR ZAPPY GUN TO STOP THEM!!
Also, I really did lol at this one.
Backseat gamers are like sunburns: you can try to avoid them all your life but, eventually, you always get one : P
WE MUST GET THE THING!!! Doesn’t matter what we do! WE must have it!
We MUST have it! We must HAVE it! We must have IT! xD
Hahah, I’m like that with my friends when they play games I’ve only tried.
I think im addicted to HP…. i lasted one hour before i *HAD* to check this
You got it! You GOT IT! NOOOOO! YOU LOST IT!
And we know how seriously Peanut takes “losing the game.”
no the other thingy
Move the thing! No, the other thing! Move it!
Don’t run too much or you’ll lose stamina!
*stamina meter depletes*
reminds me of skyrim when you use all of your stamina and your running away from a frost troll near high hrothgar
Is that how Cerberus got her heads too?
I used to be like that but i stopped gaming on consoles. Now i got PC :3
Good to see Grape and Peanut again
I play games on console for a multitude of reasons.
1) I have an HDTV (not a reason b/c I can hook up my PC to it)
2) I like the feel of a controller as opposed to a mouse and keyboard – and in some cases, like Skyrim, the controller is how it was meant to be played.
3) Kinect voice controls in games (ie Mass Effect 3)
4) My computer can’t play games beyond Half Life 2, Mass Effect, or anything beyond 2007
5) HALO. ‘Nuff said.
Reason to play on PC:
1) Logitech X-540s. Great surround sound set I got for $80. Sadly, only works w/PC analog out…
I wonder what game she’s playing on their Wii, and what exactly is the thing? (The flag, perhaps)
Grape’s muzzle seems fatter than usual.
Due to this, she looks even more like a guy than usual. o.O
That is, not like she looks like a guy, ever…
She needs to lay off the dog biscuits
I always do that to people who claim to be “experienced” and still do awful in pc games D:
So I guess she’s Grapniss and he’s Pale
so true… this is what im like watching my mum attempt to play a game
panel 2 FTW
Wait since when am I part of the comic? … Oh wait I’m not. XD
But seriously I can totally see myself acting like Peanut, but I bet a lot of us feel the same. X3
I act like that often while watching Let’s Plays of games I’ve already beaten once before.
The dude playing it is like, “Ok, now where is this thing I’m supposed to find?” and I’m just screaming profanities at my computer monitor because the thing is literally RIGHT FREAKING BEHIND THEM!
That’s NOTHING! I usually watch let’s plays on stuff I can’t play(no console or such) and I scream from the top of my lungs cuz some ppl can’t understand if a game says something it’s not just filler, but the thing they should do and they never pay attention and then they wonder why don’t they know what to do… THIS is the reason moder games are forced to lead us by the hand nowadays. :/
It’s good to know it’s not only my little brothers who behave this way.
why wouldn’t they act like that? I have three brothers. one player, three extreme anoyances. I annoy my brothers about stuff like that too.
Grape: Okay, I got the thing! Now what does it do?
You don’t go for the things that do nothing but give your character a funny hat or different color clothes!
Doo DOO DOODOO Doo doo doodoo doodoo!
PROTIP: Talk to Everyone. Or was it Shoot the Cyberdemon till it dies? Eh, talk to the all the Cyberdemons till they die.
Protip: There are no decent galactic dating services. To have a shot at romance, you have to talk to people.
My random ME2 tip of the day! Much more relevant to real life than ME3’s tips!
POINTLESS PROTIP: Shoot the zombies till they stop moving.
XD my mom is the same way as peanut
Super mario bross wii
You must retrieve the thing in order to complete a special quest, so that you can retrieve the most powerful weapon in the whole game! GET THE THIIIIIIING!
Teenage Morphin Plumber Rabbits.
The Game o_o
Plunger to the face!
Thing to the face!!!
Pre Teen Dirty Gene Kung Fu Kangaroos!
(this was a real comic book)
(would I lie to you?)
He’s not joking.
It’s a thing! And there’s this thing that’s a thing! And the thing’s a thing! But it’s a thing! And there’s the thing over by the thing! Gotta get the thing!
Moral of the story: I had waaaaay too much Cartoon Network and Dexter’s Lab while growing up.
ever see MAD about a movie called the thingy, about a thing,in something, starting the thing.
“Can i guess?”
“You’re not allowed to”
” I’m not allowed to guess?”
Wow, I’m surprised no one has made a comment about the title.
This is why dogs don’t have thumbs.
But Peanut has thumbs! And he’s a dog! I’ve run rings around you logically!
i really wondering what the game they play
Peanut is so much adorable in panel one (im in love)
This update made me laugh heartily.
I am also physically unable to watch someone play an video game that I have proficiency in.
The art of backseat gaming :3
The game that Grape is playing must be new Super Mario Bros or Metroid, not sure…
darn backseat gamers, just let us play!
but if they’re doing it wrong then watching is boring.
plus im the expect my young padawan, you must listen
if you start telling me how to play and I’ll go join the dark side, i hear they have cookies
rallyji, i am your father and u are my kitten. together we will rule THE THING!
NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO … well maby
Nobody likes a backseat driver-er gamer…
Best headset commercial in the world. Just add one more panel that says “BOSE…Trust me you will need these…NOW!”
Definately New Super Mario Bros. It has the spin jump, ladder, shooting enemies, and of course 30 seconds to get the thing. I’m not sure why Peanut isn’t playing with her though…?
Ah, that would make sense.
Maybe Peanut walked by when Grape was already playing.
Grape: This is why I don’t play this with you any more!
Ahaha, my sister has literally yelled “GET THE THINGY!!” playing a video game once, and granted she’s not a very video game-esque person, so to me it was hilarious.
I think there Playen crash bandicoot
no shame in losing to the best…
Is that you?
Watch out! Hey listen! Hey Listen! Watch out!
Obviously Peanut hasn’t played that game, grape tough, might have a lot of experience with it.
Why doesn’t she shoot the enemys in the knees??
XD Peanuts a real Gamer Isn’t he?
haha, that was me and my brother too x3
Grape: Yes yes, I love you too Peanut, now stop shaking me!
Bloody back-seat gamers. *is guilty of doing that too*
Grape looks like she’s in the zone… until the last panel.
Wait, is Grape playing Castlevania? Because that would explain Peanut’s whacked-out state PLENTY.
im just like peanut crazy and not the smartist SUPPER EMOTIONAL dont qwite get comon sence and presonal space
Everyone who says they didn’t do somethign like this is lying.
Yup, I can see Peanut camping out for the midnight release of the Wii U dragging Grape along with him lol!
Raise your hand if you’ve actually shaken someone before to do something in a video game *raises hand*
Now my life feels like so boring since I haven’t done this
I had more fun reading the comments this time then the comic, well done everyone lol
-^.^- you know it’s a good day when someone vibrates a cat lol
Oh Grape….you’d get nowhere with out Peanut’s generous guidance, and the occasional shove in the right direction….and a refreshing strangling for good measure.
Sheesh, ol peanut’s gone coo coo.
grape- ack he’s chock *cough* ing me
Lol I love how calm Grape is through out this comic as Peanut keeps telling her what to do X3
I think it’s called “tuning him out”.
I now know how my Grandpa doesn’t notice anything when Deadliest Catch is on XD
Penut reminds me of myself when I was telling my brothers how to play Assassin’s Creed XD
Oh god, I’m so guilty of what peanut is doing. XD
Your average, everyday, backseat gamer.
This article is very interesting and gripping. I like your points of view and how well they are expressed. Your content is well-written. Thank you. http://www.samsung1080phdtv.net/
